Overview

Crossfire is a free-to-play, online first-person shooter game, developed by SmileGate in South Korea and now being distributed by Z8Games Portal. The game originally released in 2007 in Korea and has now expanded worldwide because of its huge success there. The game utilizes wiselogic X-Trap, a system widely used in free online titles such as AIKA and CABAL to prevent hacking and cheating and to keep the playing field fair. One only downloads a 1.5MB download client that then downloads the real installer.

The game has been grossing $1 billion every year in annual revenues (the majority of which comes from Asia, particularly China), making it the highest-grossing first-person shooter of all time and one of the highest-grossing online games along with World of Warcraft, which it overtook in annual revenues for the first time in 2012.

Gameplay

Crossfire in practice handles much like the standard online shooter of todays age. In the beginning one begging their gaming careers with the standard weapons and through playing matches and gain experience, the player gains GP, the games in-game currency that the player utilizes to purchase weapons, clothes and gear to make use of in game to improve their experience. The player their own customization screen where they can change out the weapons they can use on their matches, note this is in the main menu of the game, once starts a match this menu can not be accessed. Once the player is happy with their character, they choose a game channel and the choose a game server.

Once the player is in game, they are automatically positioned as either terrorist (Blacklist) or counter- terrorist (Global Risk), There is a 3 second spawn invulnerability that is illustrated to others by the character model flashing red. After the player has spawned in their respective places, that players can then rush various parts of the map to encounter with the opposing team and have it out in an all out gun fight much familiar to most people that have played Counter-Strike 1.6 or Combat Arms.

There is the usual headshot and players take damage and as soon as one dies they are back at spawn with in 3 seconds. Once a Player makes a kill, a white star at the bottom of their screen appears with one spike shaded light gold, if the player manages to aquire a double kill the latter spike will shade, accompanied by the Quake-Style Announcer stating the respective "Double Kill" and "Multi Kill." Once the star has filled, the announcer shouts "Unstoppable" and every kill hence gets this response.

The round ends according to the game mode that the server that the player joined has entered:

Elimination

  • Consist of an "every man for themselves" objective where each player has their own score and the player that reaches the winning number of kills first wins the round.

Team Deathmatch

  • Each player is assorted in a Terrorist or Counter-Terrorist team, the player that amounts the number of kills established by the server first wins the match.

Search and Destroy

  • A player in the terrorist (Blacklist) side holds a bomb that they must plant in one of two designated planting areas, The round is either won by the team that eliminates the opposing team first or by the bomb timer reaching 0 and the bomb exploding at the designated bomb site.

Ghost Mode

  • Essentially Search and Destroy with the exception that the Terrorist (Backlist) Cloaked and can only carry knifes, the round is won by either the bomb detonating or the elimination of the opposing team.

The game controls in a relatively traditional, First person shooter way. The user moves using the WASD keys and uses the mouse to aim and left click to fire their weapon. With weapons that hold a scope, right click is to zoom in their scope. The user either uses their 1-4 keys or scroll wheel to select their weapon. Q is used to change between the two latest used weapons. Space bar jump etc. classic, Counter-Strike controls.

Mutation Mode / Hero Mode

A player at random is turned into a mutant at the start of the round and the objective is to infect the entire human team to mutants within the time limit. A variant on this mode is called "Hero Mode" where one person on the human team is turned into the hero who can survive multible hits from mutants and has a grenade launcher on his galil
