Hackers often get kicked from rooms.

A hack is any program designed to interact with Crossfire and provide the user with an unfair advantage.

Hacks (and those who use them) are considered by almost the entire player base to be detrimental to the game and great pressure is exerted on WiseLogic to eliminate them from CrossFire, although CrossFire may eventually detect hack tools on its own, it still relies on X-Trap. Their use is against the Terms of Use and frequently leads to account suspension and/or termination. If you encounter a person who appears to be using hacks in game, it is strongly advised to call a vote to kick that player or request someone else does it if you're unable. You should also save a replay after the match and submit it to the hack investigation team to let them investigate the matter and take appropriate action against offenders.

The number of Crossfire hacks has fortunately reached an all-time low due to changes in its anticheat technology. Many types of hacks are now automatically detected and the users are banned by an automated system.

Most hackers used to play in Free For All matches because they did not allow players to call kick votes in the past. However, this has changed since the developers decided to allow kicking in these games due to popular demand.

-Unfortunately, many players abuse the vote kick feature to remove players who are merely doing better than other players.

Types of Hacks

  • Aimbot (automatically aims the user's cursor at other players)

  • See Ghosts (allows users to see the ghosts like normal characters in Ghost Mode, Shadow Mode and Ghost Vs Mutants)
  • Fullbright (removes lighting allowing users to see other players much easier)
  • Fast Knife (user's melee used executes attack much faster)
  • 360 Knife (user's knife will be directed to any targeted enemy, even behind them)
  • Walk Through Wall (allows users to walk through the map geometry)
  • No Clip (allows users to freely move anywhere they want in the map, and letting them move through geometry as well)
  • Super Jump (allows users to jump higher and reach unreachable places. Separated from double jumps and boosting jump technique)
  • Undermap (allows the user to teleport underground, which gives the ability to kill enemies easily. Normal users can't shoot through the map floor)
  • Always Headshot (any kills made by the user is all considered as a headshot, Gold or White, regardless of wherever the final shot was made)
  • ESP Hack (commonly used along with wallhacks, the user is given info of other players, including name, weapon currently equipped, and HP)
  • Teleport Hack (by pressing a key, the user 'leaves' his physical body behind and free to move wherever he/she pleases. Repressing the key teleports your physical body to your 'ghost' location)
  • Change Weapon Hack/REZ Hack (Changes user's M16, M700, and Knife to another weapon skin, but still using the stats. The skin overlaps the weapon, so if you used the knife and changed it to Kukri, you would wield a Kukri but with Knife skin on it)
  • Bag Hack/Weapon Duplication (allows the user to change to any other bag at any given time. If you switch to another bag and back, you will receive a new set of the weapons, with ammo replenished)

  • CF Brazil's Z8 Games YouTube channel made a video joking with banned hackers that was sending tickets through the BR website. The GMs were reading all these tickets and laughing as a humiliating penalty.

  • Rank Reset (your current rank will go back to trainee or anything ranks depending on some offenses)
  • Stats Rollback (Removes all your wins/losses, all recorded matches etc.)
