Capture the Relic is a Battlegrounds game mode falling under Flag Games. Its objective is to secure enemy relics five times to earn 500 points for one's team. Enemy relics can only be captured while one's team holds its own relic.
The Relics begin the game at their respective bases, where they will remain until a player of an opposing team picks it up. For a brief duration, the picking up of relics can be interrupted, though it can be attempted again. It will hover above the head of the player who picked it up as it is carried by the player. If the carrier dies, the relic will fall from the carrier and all players will have the opportunity to interact with it to either claim it, or, if the interacting player is a member of the relic's team, send it back to its original position. If the relic run is uninterrupted, the relic runner will be able to earn 100 team points and 500 medal points by bringing it to their own base, where it will then disappear. After a few seconds, it will return to its original position. As with all other Battlegrounds, to earn 500 points is the objective.
