Capture and Hold (C&H) is a game mode in Tribes, Tribes 2, and Tribes: Ascend. In this mode players compete for control of multiple Control Points (pictured). These points can be inside bases, towers, or other important structures. When a player touches a control point there is a 5 second period where the ownership of the point changes teams. After this the Base Assets tied to the control point will come under the team's control. Each 5 seconds after taking ownership of a control point the team scores 1 point. Victory is achieved after a team reaches 300-500 points depending on the number of control points on the map.

Currently a player must have a rank of at least 6 (Squadman III) to play in a C&H match.


The following maps are available for C&H:
