TF2 Capture Point Instant Spawn Tutorial


  • Set the 'Name' and not-yet-created 'Control point' values arbitrarily.
  • Set 'Can BLUE Cap?' to 'No'.
  • Set both 'Red Spawn Adjust' and 'Blue Spawn Adjust' to '-20'.
  • Set 'Time to cap (sec)' to '.1'.
  • Make sure the area covers the entire spawn zone, or it is large enough where a player from that team will be forced to capture the area when spawned.
An example trigger_capture_area for the red team.

  • Set the 'Name' to the arbitrary 'Control point' name you set in the previous step.
  • Set the 'Print Name' to something cool like 'Instant respawn capture point'
  • Set the 'Index' to a unique number, in this case '1' will do.

  • Make the same setup for the other team.
  • Note: Copy / Pasting might result in some problems (Red team spawning in blue area)
  • Be sure to change the 'Name' attribute where appropriate. Also, the 'Index' of the team_control_point must be changed to a unique value ('2' would do nicely). A few other attributes must be set to align with the team (see above).
The duplicated respawn.


  • Set the 'Name' to something arbitrary.
  • Set 'Priority' to '1'.
  • Set 'Control points in this round' to a space-delimited list of the arbitrary team_control_points 'Names' you defined. For example: 'red_control_point blue_control_point'.

  • Set the 'Name' to something arbitrary.
