CSGO Brokenfang is now LIVE, the most anticipated update of 2020. There have been major changes to the game, including the addition of 7 new maps, 10 new agents and 2 new game modes.
CSGO Operation Brokenfang is available to play by purchasing the operation pass for $15 USD. Players can easily make their investment back with the in game agent, skin and item drops. The operation is live until April 30 2021. Each week players will be able to play new missions that have different amounts of stars available.
Earning stars will level up your operation coin from bronze, silver, gold to diamond, and stars can also be used to spend on opening cases or obtaining weapon skins, graffitis, agent skins, badges and stickers.
Ancient is the newest addition to the competitive map pool, taking on a very similar look and feel to the popular CS 1.6 map Aztec. Since Aztec has been removed from the CSGO map pool, players have been missing the nostalgic map design. Ancient is a map set in the jungle among stone pyramids and pillars.
Here is the Operation Announcement tweet by CSGO.
CSGO Brokenfang New Agent Skins
Players can access the operation through the operation Brokenfang pass. Once you have the pass, you will have access to all the new features of the operation. Players can acquire stars from missions that can be used to open cases, purchase agents, purchase graffitis & stickers and choose a random skin from the new weapon collections.
The new operation includes 20 new custom player agent skins that can be purchased at a random selection in each tier of agent. Each agent tier costs more stars. The tiers are distinguished, exceptional, superior and master, in that order. Master being the most expensive star cost and distinguished being the cheapest. A lot of players complain about agent visibility issues during competitive play, but these agents seem to have been optimized for that.
Here are the new agents:

Operation Brokenfang New Maps
In addition, there are 7 new maps. The main one being Ancient being added to the competitive map pool.
2 New game modes have been added: Retakes and Brokenfang premier. The Brokenfang premier game mode is a 5 verses 5, pick ban mode. This means there is a pre game lobby where each team captain can pick and ban certain maps from the map pool, leaving 1 remaining. A lot like FACEIT. Players can queue the active duty map pool in this premier game mode and only players that have the pass are allowed to queue the mode.
Any player that has the pass will be also be able to access the new stat tracker feature. It automatically tracks all your statistics in terms of gunplay, heatzones (kill distribution across the map on T and CT sides or both sides), accuracy, weapon choices, map win rates and weapon performances (K/D and total kills). There is a weapon accuracy panel that tracks how many times you hit each part of the body on your opponents, whether it is the head, arms, legs or upper and lower body.
CSGO Brokenfang Operation NEW SKINS
There are dozens of new CSGO skins within this operation. The operation consists of 3 new collections and 1 brand new case, called the Operation Broken Fang Case. There are unique and amazing skins such as the AWP fade, that are completely new to the game.
CSGO Brokenfang Operation New Chat Wheel
There is also a new feature to CSGO which is the communication chat wheel. This feature allows players to ping certain areas, make callouts and give directions with a press of a button. This feature fixes the problem when teammates don’t use their microphones to communicate with others. Communication in CSGO is very important, because if a player doesn’t comm a certain piece of information, then your team can lose the round.
The communication chatwheel has multiple options such as:
comunicate to teammates, pings,
A or B
callouts translated in chat
