Control Point in Mineside, where the VIP escapes through his personal transport.

The Civilian has no combat training, is four-feet-ten on a good day, won't appear anywhere except VIP mode, and wouldn't even staff his Northampton horse ranch with filth like you, but by God, can he capture points.

Death & Taxes update page

VIP is a game mode involving a player designated as the VIP, who can only play as the exclusive Civilian class, a class designed to be very weak, who's role is to focus on the objectives in the maps he's available in. This includes capturing control points, using a device to open up the last control point, and racing towards the last point in one life. Typically, the BLU team will be focusing on aiding the VIP in completing these objectives, while the RED team is focused on preventing him until the timer has been reached. Usually, upon the death of the VIP, time gets removed from the timer, which allows the RED team to win faster. The VIP has special abilities himself that supports his team, including a defense boost for teammates near him, and his Umbrella that grants mini-crits on friendly targets.


The following is a list of official VIP maps:
