The Winchester rifles are all lever-action single shot rifles. They are categorized as Assault Rifles. They behave very similarly to shotguns, as at close range they will cause 1 shot kills. At very long ranges, they will often only cause paper-cuts in terms of damage though, making the Winchester-S's low power scope nearly obsolete.
Due to the slow fire rate, very limited range, and inconsistencies in terms of damage output, the Winchester rifles are considered joke weapons and are very rarely seen in use.
- The Winchester-S was incorrectly classified as an SMG in the NA version of CrossFire for a time. This has since been rectified and is now considered an Assault Rifle.
- The Scope of Winchester-S, actually is an PSG-1 scope.
