After more than a year of waiting and months of teasing, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s Operation Broken Fang has arrived.
CSGO’s newest operation comes with a batch of new features, including live stats tracking, four new skin collections, a brand new in-game ping system, and a whole host of features that CSGO players have begged for over the years. The operation comes with live map picks and bans prior to each competitive match exclusive to operation ticket holders. Community favorite retake servers are also included with the downloadable operations pass.
Broken Fang comes with many new ways for fans to interact with the game and includes the popular evolving Operation coin. Users can upgrade their coin by completing weekly missions and objectives. But there’s much more to come alongside the coin in what is the game’s biggest operation ever. Danger Zone now has a new map called Frostbite for players who enjoy CSGO’s battle royale action. Alongside Frostbite, Valve has introduced seven new maps to Counter-Strike, including the Aztec-inspired Ancient.
CSGO fans who enjoyed Operation Shattered Web’s cooperative missions will be happy to hear that the missions have made a return in Broken Fang. There isn’t much information about them as of yet, but screenshots titled “Autumn” seem to imply that the game’s Strike missions will return with the pass as well.
Players will no longer have to rely on third-party services to track their statistics as long as they purchase the pass, according to the game’s official launch information. All operations prior to Shattered Web allowed players to track their competitive statistics by using the pass’ journal option. Although missing from Shattered Web, Valve has put on the polish for Broken Fang and integrated statistical tracking into CSGO’s UI. While Valve has kept track of almost all of a players stats for some time, Broken Fang’s integration will include heat maps, seperate stats for each mode, and more, according to screenshots.
CSGO operation launches with three new collections and the Broken Fang case for skin collectors
Broken Fang comes with a batch of new agents for players to acquire and customize, as well as three new collections and an operations case through which players can earn new skins for almost all of CSGO’s deadliest weapons. These cases are acquired through completing weekly missions or by purchasing stars for random rolls at the game’s newest skins.
Players have waited for more than a year for CSGO’s next big operation, and now, Broken Fang is finally here. Players can purchase the Operation Broken Fang pass from inside CSGO for $14.99.
