War Fan is a melee weapon featured in CrossFire.
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. It has high damage dealing, which can instantly headshot unarmored enemy with a single slash (~88 HP if they have armor) and often takes 2 slashes in the body to kill them. While it has quite short range compared to most melee weapons, it still has slightly longer range than Dual Karambit, Brass Knuckles and Boxing Gloves and appear to be the same with Jungle Knife.
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; this attack has a wide range and capable of taking out many opponents at once.

- 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.
- 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).

- 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".
