How To Easily Record CrossFire Gameplay And Clips
If you ever wanted to share your most significant CrossFire achievements and kills with others, now it's more manageable than ever to accomplish that.
Besides, you won't even need a capture card, just a gameplay recording software that will allow you to record long videos or short clips. So today, we'll reveal how to smoothly record CrossFire gameplay and clips using the best and most accessible pieces of software out there. Let's get underway!
What’s The Best Way To Record CrossFire Gameplay and Clips?
Of all the gameplay recording software out there, you're probably most familiar with GeForce Experience or Raden ReLive, which you've probably used before. However, the best way to record CrossFire gameplay, in our opinion, is one of these two programs.
The first one is called Powder, the AI-based software that can automatically save highlights from CrossFire gameplay and allow you to share them within a few clicks. The second program is called Gazoom, which has both basic and advanced features - from automatically clipping highlights to a myriad of video and audio editing options for your CrossFire clips and videos.

For those who'd like to avoid complicating things any further, there is an option - Xbox Game Bar. Remember that this useful little program is featured exclusively on Windows 10 and above, which we presume you already have.
To begin recording CrossFire gameplay using the Xbox Game Bar, hold down the Windows button + Alt + G hotkey, and select the "Record" button.
To find your CrossFire videos and clips recorded using the Xbox Game Bar, head to the C:\Users\username\Videos\Captures folder.
The Best Methods Of Recording Gameplay and Clips In CrossFire
After downloading and testing a good deal of gaming recording software, we had to set apart and decide on a few of them. The decision wasn't easy because we eliminated some excellent software, but on the other hand, we also included some in the "honorable mentions" list, which you'll see below.
So let's see what choice we made regarding the best methods of recording the CrossFire gameplay videos and clips. And if you'd like to read more of those articles, check out how to record Elden Ring gameplay or how to record Apex Legends gameplay.
Method #1: Nvidia GeForce Experience
Here's how you can record CrossFire gameplay if you have Nvidia graphic card, using the GeForce Experience:
- First, make sure to download the latest GeForce Experience version from the official website, and when you install it, it will automatically start.
- Open the GeForce Experience main menu, and you'll locate a settings cog icon in the upper right corner. Click on it to open the settings.
- Tick the green button to enable the in-game overlay function.
- Click on the "Settings" under the "in-game overlay" tab, and you'll be able to change various settings, such as hotkeys, default video folder, and more.
- After setting these up, return to the "Settings" once again and select the "Video capture" option.
Finally, you'll be able to change all video settings here, such as bit rate, frame rate, video quality, resolution, etc. It's worth mentioning that these settings will always be automatically configured based on your GPU, so it's best to leave it on default unless you want to make some tweaks yourself.
Once you're ready to capture the CrossFire videos or clips via GeForce Experience, simply press the keyboard shortcut (Alt + F9 for manual recording or Alt + F10 for clips). Your videos will be stored in the C:\Users\<Username>\Videos folder.
Method #2: Radeon ReLive
And here's how you can record CrossFire gameplay if you have an AMD graphic card, using the Radeon ReLive:
- Visit the AMD's official website and download the latest version of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition. Once you install it, you'll need to restart your PC.
- Once your PC restarts, open the AMD Radeon settings and click on the ReLive tab.
- Tick the button to enable the ReLive function.
Looking at the screenshot, you'll notice miscellaneous options placed much more conveniently than in GeForce Experience. Here, you'll be able to create custom recording profiles, make audio/video tweaks, and even record instant GIFs of CrossFire gameplay.
To begin recording CrossFire gameplay videos or clips using the Radeon ReLive, hold down the Ctrl + Shift + R hotkey on your keyboard. Of course, you may change this hotkey to anything you prefer. To find your CrossFire videos and clips captured using the Radeon ReLive, head to the C:\Users\<Username>\Videos\Radeon ReLive folder.
Method #3: Open Broadcaster Software
Lastly, here's how you can record CrossFire gameplay videos or clips using the OBS:
- Visit the official website of OBS and download the latest version of the software. Once you install and run it, you'll receive an auto-configuration wizard prompt which can set all options for you based on how powerful your PC is. For this reason, we suggest you don't skip it.
- Once you're through with the auto-configuration wizard, select the + icon under the "Sources" tab.
- Choose the "Game capture" option, enter any name you want, and confirm it.
If you decide to change settings manually at any point, click on the "File" and select the "Settings." There, you'll be able to make tweaks and change any audio, video, hotkey, or default storage folder settings, among many others.
Once you're ready to begin recording CrossFire using the OBS, press the (previously set) keyboard hotkey or click on "Start Recording" from the OBS menu, located in the lower right corner.
You can find your CrossFire videos and clips captured through OBS in C:\Users\<Username>\Videos folder.
