CrossFire is a free MMOFPS game that pits two powerful forces against each other. On one hand we have the terrorist from Black List, and on the other hand the anti-terrorist mercenaries of Global Risk. Select your side and enter fast paced battles in first-person perspective.
CrossFire features several game modes, ranging from classic Death Match to others such as Mutation Mode and Escape Mode. According to the player’s performance, they will earn experience points that will help them climb the Military ranks and host several titles, from trainee to Sergeant. Players are able to customize their appearance and arsenal through the usual in-game store, using real money to buy premium and special items, but they can also earn a free currency called Game Points, that can be spent on some additional items.
With nearly a dozen maps and a huge player population, CrossFire is currently one of the most played free MMOFPS games.

When this game first launched in Indonesia at 2009, this game is a blast with the zombie mode (the first online FPS in Indonesia that brings this mode). Every gun is very balanced (the only advantage is just an additional suppressor and more ammo.
2012 is the year where cheaters and glitchers running rampage on every channel in CF ID. That make some veteran player to temporarily retired from this game.
Then in circa 2017, Crossfire Indonesia shuts down and relaunched again as "Crossfire Next Generation" (Basically the same old Crossfire) and promising better support for Crossfire.
And now in 2018, nothing changed. This game turns bad with many problems after CF Next Gen relaunching. Most annoying problems are :
- "Client is changed error" every big update
- "Different client version detected" error every big update
- Crappy game guard (Xtrap keeps flagging "atiumdva.dll" (some file in my radeon GPU driver) as a hack tool
- Still using 1024x768 resolution (while some foreign servers are supporting 1080p resolution)
- And the recent one, Sudden disconnected from server (Although i lived in a city that have perfect internet connection by Indonesian standards).
All of the problems above has causing many veteran player including myself to completely retired from this game and move on to another game that has better support.
Overall i will give this game 3.5/10
(Highly Not Recommended)
fast knife . wallers . fly . shoot on sight . and there is so much lag and too many bugs . the game is now is full of sh..
+ 8 Character

- Couple of Bugs
- Auto match making Issue
- Old Graphic may turn off player
I Recommend to play with friends only in Cross fire otherwise player will kick you out if your skilled in shooter game plus watch out for Abuse inviter in Cross fire. (Create your Server only)
Don't bother with this Community at all.
I have been playing the game since 2013
I stopped playing the game because every room had hackers plus the dev's did not even seem to be doing anything about it, it was basically a crap game
Most players are also stupid noobs probably idiot kids who think FPS games are meant to be hacked
Fast forward now the year 2016 2.0 I can say is significantly better
the hackers are still there but they are already very rare
Yes indeed in the FFA mode the cheaters cant be kicked but that mode gives you shit Exp barely enough to level up so that kinda balances the situation
I recommend that you go to servers exclusive for second lieutenant above because the players there are much more mature and experienced
they also without hesitation kick the hackers there and its all bout who is skilled and who is not
Crossfire is not necessarily a pay to win game
Even if you have VIP weapons does not necessarily mean that you have mastered the game
I for one have encountered them and most of them are just rich idiots who dont know how to play. Though it gives them an edge it does not necessarily make you inferior to them you just have to be cautious plus it will tell you if you are really good in the game
feels kinda good to kill a VIP player
I play the game because of my friends I do not play it cause it superior to BATTLEFIELD or COD
but simply because it is an okay game plus I am good at it
if i get kicked for being too good it kinda feels good
its like an affirmation that since your too good they think your a cheater
I do not know about other versions but in PH the hackers are pretty rare already except in FFA esp knife mode there is always atleast one hahaha
the graphics have improved but again it is nothing compared to FPS games like COD of BTLFLD
Here are the things which need to be fixed
A better ANTI-HACK system so that there will no longer be a need for a in game kick system
Add reflection and shadowing to game graphics that would be spot on
anyway I would say dont spend on it if your not good
just give it a shot
and if you dont like it then this game is not for you
games are meant to be enjoyed any way, not necessarily scrutinized for every single flaw
every game has one.
But on the other hand graphics and effects are only intermediate and the maps become boring after a while. Also lag is really an issue.
As before in Combat Arms, hackers destroyed the game for me. Never tried it again.
Paying with Game Points (which you win through matches) only buys you standard weapons, which also takes a while to obtain. The 300 Game Points from one 12 minute match seems like pocket change when a weapon costs 40,000-50,000 points.
The only features that I like are the Zombie Mode the Fever Gauge (added in the November 2013 patch). The gauge increases after every match and has 3 sections. Each section earns you a reward (temporary weapons or special points to buy those temporary weapons).
Overall, I think Cross Fire's pros are a little out weighed by its cons. 2/5
The Problems with this game:
# The community is full of heroine-overdosing 10-year olds.
# If you are a good player, you WILL be accused of hacking and you WILL be kicked.
The only times you will not be kicked is if there is a Hacker in the game that has more points than you.
You may say "no problem, then I'll change server!" - you can do that, and the next server will be just as bad or worse.
Besides for that, if you quit or get kicked, you loose all the cash you would have gotten from the match - and you need cash to buy new weapons and repair your old ones.
# It won't always be the enemy team that accuses you of hacking. If you have the highest score in the whole server and the guy with the secound highest score is in your team - he will try to kick you and accuse you of hacking (even if u have a worse kill/death ratio). Because of the many hackers in this game and because of their mental retardation the rest of the players will kick you.
Klingon style promotion.
# Players refusing to kick hackers.
They wont kick hackers in their team if they believe your team has a hacker too, no matter if that player actually hacks or not. I have heard "Kick your hacker first!!!" endless times when I asked players in the opposing team to kick the wallhacking, aimbotting 23-0 score hacker in their team.
You can only start kickvotes against players in your own team. That would be a acceptable with a mature (in behaviour) playerbase. But, well... refer to the first point.
# FFA Matches:
You can not kick players in FFA matches.
# Getting kicked for trying to kick hackers.
Happens especially in Zombie mode. Newbies want a hacker to pull them through the game, but don't realize that they won't make any points themself if the hacker one-shots everything with his machinegun. No points = no reward.
# Gambling for guns is a ripoff.
Read some of the threads about gambling for guns and how much some players spend on guns.
True, you can also get some guns for gold, wich u don't have to play for, but they are far inferiour to the guns you have to gamble for.
Usually guys seem to spend 50 - 100 € before they get the gun of their choice. Yes, sometimes people get the gun of their choice for less... and oftens it'll cost even more.
Investing that kind of money for a "Play for free" game???
You can get 2-3 full games like battlefield 3 or w/e for that kind of money! Or how about some more RAM? Hell, I've read of people who spent 3000-5000€ for crossfire guns... money utterly wasted. You can buy a decent used sports car for that money, no kidding (i.e. Mitsubishi GT3000 - 4WD, 300+ HP!). OR you can fill the account of those grubby bastards who have created a game with the sole goal of making money and milking people that are playing this worthless, soulless ripoff.
Okay going really offtopic here now... :-)
I just almost downloaded this game again - untill I remembered how HORRIBLE IT IS!!!
Unless you are feeling utterly suicidial and are looking for something to finally push you over the edge, don't download this CRAP!!!
CROSSFIRE = HELL ON EARTH.
The only reason you should be playing this is if you are looking for a good justification for Genocide. Because after playing crossfire you might just form the thought that humanity doesn't deserve to life and feel the wish to burn it all down.
I have played many games with bad or newbie-unfriendly communitys... and with hackers... but nothing... absolutely nothing can compare to Crossfire. Ever.
Thanks for reading.
Dear moderators, if my language was a bit too strong, please edit my post rather than deleting it. People need to be warned. Thank you.
The game itself as improved in so many ways, that a player that just started playing wont even notice.
Even though there are a couple of hacker you can play nicely if you choose the right servers.
One of the main things that pulls players into the game its the ranks and the modes.
There are about 4 or 5 diferent modes that you can play which makes the game less boring than the others FPS.
I can't say that there aren't any bad points in-game because there are.
The worst one is that it takes months to get a new weapon after you've passed the levels that give you free gamepoints.
Now, the graphics are another matter, they are better than CS 1.6 but a little lower than CS: Source so i think that the graphics are pretty good for a FPS.
The controls are simple and i think that it suits the game and that it makes it an advantage.
After saying all this here is my opinion:
First things first, what is with the lag? I played this on a high end computer with 24mb download/15mb upload connection and I lagged so badly. secondly the hackers are annoying but with counter hacks they are easy to rid yourself of, watch them QQ when you locate hidden IP's and max out their packets causing them to lag out of the game. Thirdly, z8games did a horrible job bringing this game into the market, I would much rather play on a nexon game then z8game, being nexon has a legit hack shield where z8game uses a piece of crap that even hackshield could run circles around(and we all know how shitty hackshield/hack guard is) plain and simple why can these f**** 3rd party companies use stuff like punkbuster, its not expensive they wont have to worry about hackers, all they have to do is make sure they tweak their systems enough so the legit players dont get kicked because they had a virus on their computer.
Well this is my 2 cents on the lowest of the lows...mmobomb please remove this unworthy piece of shit from your database
Z8Games don't do there job good and the players cry, kick and hack only.
But there's hope for eurpeans! Cross Fire EU, a new begging ;)
But for now, not a lot of people are using them because it's just retarded and pub hacks get patched very quickly.
And for good hack free rooms, just play some Search and Destroy or play in the West Coast server.
lol only hackers! sorry a game 4 hacker!
