- in-game description


ULP (United Lady Peacemaker) is a female character featured in CrossFire.

Description

The ULP was founded by a group of lady soldiers who were refused enlistment in elite Special Forces around the world in order to prove that women can hold their own against men in the military. This unit specializes in covert and anti-terrorist operations. Using their feminine charm and lethal combat training, the ULP has become a force to reckon with. The ULP can be seen working alongside with other special forces usually for the right price.

Availability

  • Available in all CrossFire versions

Variants

Advantages of use

Smaller character model

ULP is smaller than other character models. This can make her harder to see behind cover.

Despite her physical size difference, this affects her visibility only. If you shoot slightly outside of her visible body, a hit will still be registered. This is because all characters are within invisible boxes known as "hitboxes". Damage is taken anytime one of these hitboxes is shot or melee attacked. The hitboxes are all the same size, regardless of model used.

Psychological advantage

Moreover, novice "freebie" players may be intimidated by the presence of ULP(s) on the battlefield. This is mostly because ULP is obtainable only through a ZP transaction, which carries a connotation of devotion and power.

Tournament legality

Due to ULP's smaller character model, she is typically not allowed to be used in tournaments. Unlike in CF PH, ULP can be used in ALL WOMENS TOURNAMENT while in a regular tournament, default characters are only allowed to use.

Trivia

  • She is the first female character ever created in CrossFire. In general, she's the 4th character to be featured in the game after the three basic characters (SWAT/OMOH/SAS).
  • When was first released in CF China, her health bar icon is quite different that she got a hat on it, but soon later it got changed. It still can be seen in some old footages.
  • ULP is also known as Lady Ranger in CF Vietnam. She is the first female character available in the Item Shop, the second is The Arch and the third is Ngọc Trinh. (All other characters are available in Black Market & VVIP System).
  • There is a skilled character variant for the SPOP (ULP) which is "SPOP-X" (ULP-X). It has the ability to see better in smoke.
    • Although in some versions, it doesn't feature its smoke protection skill.
  • After one of the updates made in CrossFire, BL SPOP's short pants changed in color. It changed from color blue to a yellowish color.
  • Due to the debut of SPOP-X, plus her skills (in some versions) as well as chance to own her permanently (especially in any version that sold her in MP Shop), ULP becomes less and less popular, which eventually makes her a "shelfwarmer" as most players prefer skilled character like Ranger, Devil Hunter, Ngọc Trinh, etc.
