New CSGO Operation Broken Fang: maps, more
Counter Strike Global Offensive’s new Operation, Broken Fang, has arrived in December.
In a surprise update on November 3, Valve released the new Broken Fang Operation into CSGO. The new event features an operation pass, new maps, skins and operators. Here’s some of the new features in the operation.
Broken Fang Pass and Premier Matchmaking
The Broken Fang pass costs $15 and includes access to premier matchmaking, a queue exclusive for operation pass owners. In this competitive mode, you and the enemy team both vote for a map to play in a pick/ban phase.
Your stats will be available on the Operation stats page. Your performance in this mode will be logged throughout the season into a highly detailed breakdown.
In the new stat track tab, you’ll have stats like map performance, weapon stats, and heatmaps available for view.
The operation rewards are different this time around. Instead of a battle pass system with reward progression, there is now a “star” system. The stars can be used to purchase a variety of items in the operation shop. Most rewards consist of random prizes from an operator or skin collection. Here’s the rewards.
- New agents from 3 collections and 1 master agent
- Broken Fang Case
- Ancient Collection Weapon
- Control Collection Weapon
- Havoc Collection Weapon
- Broken Fang Stickers
- Skill Group Patches
- Recoil Graffiti and Stickers
New Retake Mode
Retakes is a new game mode inspired by community servers. In this mode you’ll select set load-outs to defend or attack a bomb site in a 3v3 situation. The first team to 8 rounds wins the match.
Five new community maps have been added.
- Ancient, a remake of the classic map Aztec.
New Ping System
Point out enemies and make call outs to teammates with the new chat wheel. You can ask for weapons, tell players to follow you and ask for eco/buy rounds. The chat wheel is a huge development for competitive matches and is a long awaited addition.
Operation Broken Fang is currently live. If you do not have the operation pass you can still do the missions but will not receive stars as rewards. Pass holders are limited to 10 free stars per week but can buy an unlimited amount of stars to use in the store.
