Runaways is the fifth VVIP character set featured in CrossFire.
Unlike the other VVIP characters, this character is composed of two female characters in Black List and Special form and a male character on the Global Risk form, similar to Hermes but in reverse way (Hermes' male character is in BL side). They have the usual Furious Kick, Throwing Knives and a different set of voice. Its perks are pretty much the same as Nymphs for AI Modes, albeit without the Bless skill.

- Instead of obtaining this character in the VVIP System, now it's obtainable from CF China's Web Event both temporarily (7 days) and permanently along with AK47-Knife Steel Empire.
- Same with Nymphs' special character, she is also smaller than PvP counterpart so she isn't used in Mutation Mode variants; therefore, BL and GR one are used instead, but the Furious Kick is disabled. All worn character items such as Flash Guard, Smoke Helmet,... won't show up in the third-person view.
- Also in Runaways' special character, her outfit and appearance is similar to a battle maid seen in anime and video games. She uses Chinese voice sound, while the BL and GR one use English instead.
- This VVIP character uses the new Throwing Knife with new drawing animation skipping getting the knife from the right arm.
- This is the first and current VVIP character to feature a male character on it.
- The GR side in the promotion artwork and the loading screen show his bare arms with his sleeves rolled up; however, it's fully covered like any male character on GR side ingame, probably because Tencent is too lazy to create a new arm model or doesn't want to use the BL one like N-22 in CF Vietnam.
