CrossFire Philippines is the Philippine localization version of CF for Filipinos. CFPH was published in 2009 by Gameclub Philippines and uses eCoin as in-game cash currency.

Overview

Although CF PH is a Philippine localized version of CrossFire, CF PH's word displays (like UI, names, announcements, etc.) are not in their Filipino language. Instead, CF PH uses CF West's UI and script for the display words in-game.

Exclusive Features

  • Publisher-specific events every week (i.e. cash-spending events, Missions w/ exclusive rewards, raffles, EXP&GP Boost + NDR events (every weekend), Playtime/Attendance event etc etc).
  • Specialized Weapons - players can buy weapons with special skins and features (Zodiac WS & Anti-Zombie Weapons) in the Specialized tab in the Item Shop.
    • Players can buy the specialized weapons at a discounted price during the first week of its release. After that week is over, the price will be returned to its original price and will last for another week before being removed.
    • As of October 2016, all specialized weapons does not drop upon the death of the user, as heavily requested and demanded by the community when the looting issue started during the release of the M14 EBR-Taurus back in June 2016.

  • The duration of the Midnight Madness event is indefinite. It started back in January 2009 until December of the same year. The event made its re-run on January 2012 until December 2012. After that, there is no announcement of another possible re-run of the event but a handful of players found out in 2013 that they can still earn additional eCoins by topping up on the specified time stated in the event. Until now, the Midnight Madness event is still secretly active and Gameclub never announced anything about it since then.
