There are many different versions of CrossFire, each is operated by a different company, who offers customer service and organises events to their customers. The user and player accounts are limited to one specific version and therefore cannot be transferred to another version. The same consequently applies to items and any in-game currency.
The game content (maps, characters, items) are created by SmileGate and Neowiz, the developers of CrossFire. The operating companies buy a license for Crossfire and receive or buy the game content from the developers and can select which content and which items they want to offer to their customers and when to unlock it. It is possible for local publishers to request exclusive changes or game content, as long as they can reach an agreement with the developers and pay the license properly.
Any private server which has opened with the CrossFire name is illegal because the license has not been bought from Neowiz.

- Only CF China has access to CS-S based maps (Desert Storm, Inferno...) and CF Korea/Japan has access to Elite Mode. These maps/mode are NOT available to sell to other CF version since it requires copyright licenses from Valve, and Neowiz is not allowed to forward the license to other CF versions.
- CF Vietnam has the most exclusive and unique game content since VTC has to limit violences as much as they can to allow the game to be published here.
- CF Japan and CF Russia are the most frequent servers to receive new, original weapons (not re-skin variant). In contrast, CF Vietnam receives the most re-skin merchandises right behind CF China (Who created them).
