War Fan is a melee weapon featured in CrossFire.

Overview

War Fan is a fan designed for use in warfare and martial arts. War Fans are used for offensive and defensive purposes in Chinese, Japanese and Korean martial arts.

In the game, it's basically a black hand fan armed with 12 small blades on the tip of the fan for close combat. It also has 2 dragon designs and a Chinese writing plus a Gong Fu symbol in the center of the fan.

Statics wise, this weapon is quite close to Jungle Knife with similar animation, but it no longer features 2-hit secondary attack. War Fan also features a special drawing animation in which player characters fold down the fan before closing it and smack it into their hand like the Spanner, and secondary attack has player characters swipe the fan side-way, unfolding it and hit opponents with the blades.

Trivia

  • Just like M4A1-Guitar, this melee is obtainable for the pre-order of Desert Eagle-El Dorado in CF Brazil for 30 days.
  • Although War Fan is used in its closed form, the killmark shows its open form instead. This likely represents secondary attack which is most often used in weapons like War Fan.
    • The third person view model of this weapon also have 2 forms, which are its closed form and open form.
  • This weapon reused some animations and features of other melee weapons.
    • Its drawing animation is similar to Spanner and Iron Hammer. Its idle animation is similar to Kukri, Keris. Its running animation is similar to BC-Axe Beast while its primary attack animation is similar to Iron Hammer.
    • The hit sound effect is re-used from Shadow Knives
  • In CF Philippines, this melee is a limited edition weapon along with Thunderbolt Hammer, costing 5 EC for 3 hours, which is very cheap. Although it's not permanent, renewing it even when the item is gone is still possible.
    • It is later added in the Mini Lotto section, making it the second melee introduced as a mini lotto (the Jungle Knife being the first).
  • For buying a set of 30 or 50 6th Anniversary Hyper capsules, you can get this weapon for free permanently in CF Europe.
  • In CF Vietnam, this weapon can be obtained permanently for free after buying M66-Legend Dragon from Mileage Shop from November 1 2017 to November 30 2017, alongside with Dragon Blade-Silver after buying Xuan Yuan Sword.
  • In real life, War Fan didn't have any blade, because the fan itself is dangerous enough to kill a person.
    • Also in real life, this weapon is named "Black Dragon Metal Frame Kung Fu Fighting Fan".
