Town Control (TC for short or Town Guarding which is another alias) is a feature of the game that is only available for player-controlled factions (Gangs that possess a base). It gives them the ability to take control of one of the six so called un-guarded towns in the north of the worldmap.
To gain control in a town, you need to speak to the leader or chief of the town. You also need to make sure that you have at least five gang members nearby in tier 2 armors and weapons, to "impress" upon the leader that you are capable of protecting them. If there is any militia present in the town, they will attack you. When you have killed all the militia, speak to the leader again, and he shall bless you as the new "protectors" of the town. After this, a countdown willl be displayed globally. You need to hold ground for 15 minutes. To actually gain control you need at least 5 alive gang members at the end of countdown. To see area which you need to hold press F10. When the countdown timer has gone to 00:00, your faction will be shown in the pipboy as controlling the town. During the countdown, you can't access the reward container, neither can you recruit militia. Also town preview is disabled.

The Town Control does not affect reputation, but if your gang is hated in the town, you won't be able to control it. The same goes if you can't talk to the mayor, due to your low reputation, intelligence or charisma, or if you are a slaver.
