Cross Fire, also known as Crossfire, is a first-person, online-shooter game. Developed by SmileGate, it focuses on two large corporations battling it out in the near future. Players choose to work as mercenaries for either Global Risk or the Black List, and the choice they make determines whether they fight on the side of the good guys or the bad guys. As an online game, players must join a team of eight people and engage in battles against other teams that also feature eight players.

Unlike other first person shooter games, Crossfire features a number of different game modes. Zombie mode lets players work together to kill a group of invading zombies, while ghost mode lets players play in invisible mode against players who cannot see them. Team Deathmatch is one of the more popular modes in the game. Teams choose a specific map and receive a mission that they must complete in a specific amount of time. Most games require that teams earn a certain number of points or gain a specific number of kills before time runs out. Other popular modes include escape mode, wave mode, shadow mode and hero mode.

Before creating the game, the developers looked closely at the popular military weapons used by soldiers today and the top guns found in other games. They decided to give players access to a wide range of weapons, including machine guns, melee weapons, pistols, sniper rifles and assault weapons. Players can use a Desert Eagle, Colt, Mauser or guns developed by other manufacturers. Each weapon comes with a variety of pros and cons, and players can unlock additional products that improve the accuracy, weight and strength of their weapons.

Though Crossfit is a free game, it does use Game Points, which players win by moving up through the levels, completing certain missions and performing tasks in the game. They can use those points to unlock new levels, characters and weaponry. Some of those items require a high number of points, and many players will need to purchase additional points to obtain those items.

While some players don't like the points system, they do appreciate the ranking system. This system gives players points that they can use to buy items, change their characters and do other tasks. It takes more time to advance through the upper ranks than it does the lower ranks. Those who stick with it can unlock dozens of new weapons and create a customized avatar.
