Cap is a TMF captain specializing in command, leadership, and morale. He is armed with a handgun and a combat knife and dressed in a black full-body, bulletproof armor suit, a black gas mask with red lenses, and a red beret with a yellow trim.
He is a support unit, meaning that he provides assistance to his teammates with special abilities and/or by dealing extra damage.
As a TMF unit, Cap has both bullet and poison resistance, making him a suitable unit for missions containing marauders or Epidemiologist and Slob. His fear resistance is particularly strong, making it difficult for almost any amount of enemies to inflict the fear debuff. When killed, he won't turn into a zombie.
Cap is notable for his unique perk to inspire all other units on the battlefield. This is extremely useful, as the inspiration buff gives allies a slight increase to their movement speed and improves their attack reaction time. This makes him great support for units that either lack agility or DPS potential, and during missions in which it's possible/necessary to have several units on the battlefield at once and requiring them all to perform at the very best of their abilities. It should be noted that Cap's will only use his perk if at least one non-inspired ally is nearby. Additionally, if there are currently no enemies on the battlefield, he won't use his perk at all. Cap cannot inspire himself when using his perk, although having another Cap can inspire each other.
Cap is able to stand for himself, thanks to his relatively fast fire rate, decent range, quick reload, and resistances. On his own, however, he isn't all too great. Again, his perk heavily relies on the presence of other units as they are the only way to activate his ability. As such, Cap will find himself fairly vulnerable to dangerous and fast enemies without any other units to help back him up, especially if he was sent out first without any more courage left to use on other units. It's recommended holding off on sending Cap out immediately and instead focus on sending out other units, especially ranged units. Considering Cap's very high courage cost, this will make sure he is used to his full potential within the presence of other units.
Upon reaching level 13, Cap's special ability can be unlocked, granting all TMF units a 25% reload speed reduction bonus while on the battlefield. Apart from Soldier who doesn't use ranged weapons, Flamethrower, Swat, and Cap himself all benefit from slightly quicker reloads. However, the effect is hardly noticeable on Cap and Swat due to their already super quick reload speeds, meaning that only Flamethrower really benefits from it due to his much slower reload. Since this ability is only beneficial for a select few units (and most of them hardly benefiting much from it anyway), it shouldn't seriously be considered unlocking due to how incredibly niche its utility is and the fact it requires specific units to be brought along for missions to truly make it count, if at all.
In League, Cap proves to be a very good choice thanks to his bullet resistance and inspiration perk which he uses at the very beginning of the fight. Since he must go through the whole animation of him boosting his team, it's recommended that he's placed somewhere safe, preferably in the tiles furthest from enemy units, for him to apply the buff without being cut off short. Although he gives all his teammates a great advantage in combat and has decent DPS himself, he remains vulnerable against bullet-resistant enemy melee units. His very high courage cost can seriously hinder team compositions.
At level 13, Pepper can unlock her special ability which is very similar to Cap's perk, as it also allows her to inspire everyone on the field. However, she can only use it once as opposed to Cap who can use it an unlimited amount of times as needed. Despite this, Pepper can be used in the same situations where Cap would be in, be it the main game or other game modes, mainly Skirmish.
