Which is surprising in that this is the first new Operation for CS:GO
going on almost three years now. Treated as a Battle Pass of sorts, Operation Shattered Web introduces unlockable Agents (see: character skins) for the first time and missions that will unlock rewards in the form of weapons, stickers, and graffiti.
Here's the skinny.
Agents, Weapons, and More
Operation Shattered Web features CS:GO’s first ‘agents,’ characters that can be equipped on the T or CT side. In addition to their unique look, Master Agents have special voice lines and animations–you’ll get one Master Agent when you earn your final reward.
Along the way, you’ll earn several Operation Shattered Web Weapon Cases, along with weapons from three brand new weapons collections featuring designs from community artists. You’ll also earn all-new graffiti and community-designed stickers!
Each week, you’ll get access to new missions in various CS:GO game modes, including cooperative Guardian missions and an all-new Strike mission. Missions are available to all players, but you’ll need an Operation Pass to redeem your rewards.
You may recall that we recently shipped a few changes to bots in Deathmatch. Those bots will be ready for action in the Guardian and Strike missions, so watch out!
We’re also shipping a few new maps today in various game modes. Defy gravity in the new Flying Scoutsman map Lunacy, and get ready to rumble in the community-made Danger Zone map Jungle. Looking for something more competitive? Try Studio, available as a Scrimmage or in the Casual Sigma map group!
And finally the new update also nerfs the SG 553 assault rifle by increasing its price from $2,750 to $3,000 to be "more in line with its value".
