Capture The Wool (CTW) is a competitive team Arcade Game similar to the game Capture the Flag, which was released on August 26, 2020.[2] Prior to being in the Arcade Lobby, it was added to the Prototype Lobby on September 21, 2018.[1]

CTW games are ongoing meaning that players will be sent to a game already in progress instead of queueing for another round.

Skin.Capture the Wool

40 players are split into two teams, Red and Blue. Each team must build across the map in an attempt to capture the other team's two wools as well as defend their own wools from being taken; Red captures Blue's Green and Aqua wool, and Blue captures Red's Yellow and Orange wool. The woolholder(s) must get back to their home base and place the wool in the spaces at the back of their spawn.
