Everything you Need to Know About CS:GO Operation Broken Fang [All skins]
CS:GO Operation Broken Fang is the latest expansion for the incredibly popular shooter. It brings new Challenges, Retakes, maps, and of course, cosmetics and weapons. This update is huge, but to access it, you’ll need to buy the Operation Pass, which costs around $15. It’s well worth it for all of the new content on offer, plus the added benefits that you can only access with the pass. Here, we’re going to explore everything new with this expansion in detail.
CS:GO Broken Fang Premier
Welcome to a new game mode that’s exclusive to Operation Broken Fang. You can queue for a brand new type of competitive match that will challenge your skills on an entirely new level with the pass.
The Broken Fang Premier game mode is a 5v5 competitive matchmaking queue that features map picks and bans before every match. Through it, you can play intense matches across the Active Duty map pool, tracking your performance through the detailed stats page after every single one. This is the new way to obsess over whether you’re the best player among all of your friends.
Operation Broken Fang Case – All New Skins
As we mentioned above, Operation Broken Fang is packed with brand new collectibles. You can buy these in-game, and there is a lot to purchase. From new agents to unique weapons, it’s all here for you to treat yourself with.
You can rent or buy all the new Agents free for a week, read more here.
Operation Broken Fang | Agents
Sir Bloody Miami Darryl | The Professionals
Here Darryl’s white hockey mask and floral shirt combination show off his days in Vice. Not only is it a great call back to GTA Vice City, it’s a flamboyant combination that only the most confident among the ranks of The Professionals can pull off.
Sir Bloody Loudmouth Darryl | The Professionals
The mask we see here, painted with clown paint, is a sober reminder of the core tenets of The Professionals. These guys are out to take from the rich, the crybabies who don’t need all of that cash. It’s never easier to take candy from rich babies than when you’re the clown.
Sir Bloody Darryl Royale | The Professionals
This gold mask with a crown stencil commemorates the first visit to Monaco that The Professionals ever made. Their leader, Sir Bloody Darryl, is always calm under pressure. No matter how many soldiers are left standing, even if he’s riddled with bullets and only has seconds to blow the safe. He’ll always get the job done.
Sir Bloody Silent Darryl | The Professionals
This mask is was Darryl’s response to complaints about his logorrhea from others in The Professionals. What’s logorrhea you ask? It’s a tendency to extreme loquacity. What’s loquacity? It’s a fancy way of saying that Darryl talks way too much.
Sir Bloody Skullhead Darryl | The Professionals
When The Professionals were just getting started, Darryl took to wearing this Skullhead mask, a black background with a white skull, because it was great for intimidating others. While that hasn’t changed, a certain comic book character has come along to claim the insignia as their own. Honestly, it’s a little embarrassing.
Safecracker Voltzmann | The Professionals
Safecracker Voltzmann is not someone you want to spend a lot of time with. She likes very short walks along he sidewalk, the sound of cable ties being pulled, and testing explosives under pressure. She’s nobody’s ideal date, unless you like being tied up?
Number K | The Professionals
Number K is extremely mysterious. He obviously has a vendetta against the rich, otherwise he wouldn’t be with The Professionals. However, none of his teammates have ever seen his face. He likes to keep his private life just that. Private.
Little Kev | The Professionals
Kev here is Darryl’s ‘little’ brother. He makes carrying those extremely huge weapons look like the easiest thing in the world. He’s got a knack for dealing with other people’s problems before they arise, usually by putting them down. That’s why he’s the Human Resources Manager of The Professionals.
Getaway Sally | The Professionals
Sally is small, fast, and loud. She can scare her enemies when she needs to, or hide in plain sight when there’s a covert operation on the cards. Most of all, she’s The Professional’s first port of call when it comes to getting out of the area fast.
Rezan the Redshirt | Sabre
Rezan is the self appointed Head of Operations for The Professionals. He’s an author, and all around thinker. He used to have quite the temper, but now he just wears it on his sleeves so that everyone knows not to get on his bad side.
‘Two Times’ McCoy | TACP Cavalry
McCoy got his nickname by completing the TACP’s field training twice. While official records have this as a clerical error, his teammates will tell you that they had to hold him back from doing it a third time. His endurance is beyond that of any other member of his squad. Often he’ll be found as the last man standing purely because he can go harder and longer than anyone else in a fight.
‘Blueberries’ Buckshot | NSWC Seal
Buckshot’s call to fame is that he’s field tested every available military weapon in depth. His knowledge of weaponry is what the team rely on before they get into a fight. The term ‘blueberries’ might make him sound like a novice, but he’s far from it.
Street Soldier | Phoenix
Phoenix is a ground force gang with connections around the world. They know every street, every alleyway, and almost all the taxi drivers you se eon the streets have something to do with their ranks. Many are members themselves.
Dragomir | Sabre Footsoldier
Dragonmir has never been seen firing a weapon. The thing is, enemies keep dying around him. No one has ever seen him fire, but he must do it at some point in combat. Unless he’s been ripping the enemy apart with his bare hands and teeth?
The Operation Broken Fang Case is packed with exclusive goodies. There are 17 new community-designed weapon finishes, a new set of gloves, and some extra rare items found nowhere else.
There are also 16 new stickers to collect, each one exclusive to Operation Broken Fang, and a skill group patch collection to build up as you get better at the game. You can also collect new graffiti to mark the site of a kill you’re particularly proud of.
All CS:GO Operation Broken Fang Gloves
Here we’re going to go through each new set of gloves that you can earn or buy in the game. These are extremely rare items, and make you the envy of almost every player out there.
Jade Broken Fang Gloves
These gorgeous Jade gloves will set you back ~ $800 with Minimal Wear. If you want them at Battle-Scarred, you’re still going to spend ~ $150. They do look fabulous though. To me, they encapsulate everything there is in this new expansion for CS:GO.
Yellow-Banded Broken Fang Gloves
Once again, these gloves seem to epitomize the entirety of Operation Broken Fang. They’re almost tiger-skinned, though that golden insignia in the middle gives them a sense of honor you can’t find in other cosmetics. With Minimal Wear, these are a bit cheaper at ~ $300. You’ll be paying just over ~ $100 for a Battle-Scarred pair, which is still very expensive.
Needle Point Broken Fang Gloves
I love these gloves. You might not be able to see them properly in the image, but they’re covered in tiny points along the detailing. Even the knuckles look more dangerous with them. With Minimal Wear, these will also cost ~ $300, but they’re a bit cheaper at Battle-Scarred quality for $100.
Unhinged Broken Fang Gloves
These gloves are very similar to the Needle Point design above. The difference here is color. If you’re into wearing all black and need something to customize your hands, these are the gloves for you. They’re a fair bit cheaper at ~ $200 for Minimal Wear or ~ $90 for Battle-Scarred as well.
Snow Leopard Broken Fang Gloves
Now we’re getting to the good stuff. These gloves are spectacular, well-suited to those who like snowy maps and handling bright-colored weapons. For Field-Tested versions of these, you’re going to be paying ~ $800 at least. Even Battle-Scarred ones are expensive at ~ $400, but are they worth it to you?
Queen Jaguar Broken Fang Gloves
Much like the above gloves, these are a variant of Driving Gloves. They’re all leather, but the leopard pattern is what separates them and makes them beautiful and rare. For Factory New copies of these, you’ll be paying about ~ $1200. Battle-Scarred are ~ $150, but Well-Worn ones come in a bit cheaper at $100 if that would do for you.
Tie Black Broken Fang Gloves
For the posh driver that takes on the role of chauffeur for the high and mighty, these gloves complete the look. Of course, you’ve still got to be able to shoot with those nice gloves on. A pair at Minimal Wear will sell for ~ $750, while a pair at Battle-Scarred quality go for ~ $180. They’re not cheap, but they’re very pretty.
Rezan the Red Broken Fang Gloves
These gloves are related to one of the new character skins you can pick up in Broken Fang. They combine the lethal aesthetic with a red plush leather that’s to die for. ~ $350 is the price for a Minimal Wear pair, but you can get a Battle-Scarred pair for ~ $110. Not too shabby if you like red and want to complete the character’s look.
CAUTION! Broken Fang Gloves
Now, these really are my favorite gloves in the whole of Operation Broken Fang. Just look at that tape wrapped about the knuckles. It’s so offensive that your own teammates will probably kill you for wearing it. At Minimal Wear, these cost ~ $800, but for Well-Worn, they’re down at ~ $350.
Constrictor Broken Fang Gloves
Like the above gloves, these are hand wraps. Here though, we see that it looks like a snakeskin has been bandaged around the knuckles. That would be a very expensive bandage if it were real. I think whoever wears it just has a problem with snakes though. For Factory New, these cost ~ $1,500. Yes, that much. For Battle-Scarred, you can get them at just ~ $100, a much more reasonable price.
Desert Shamagh Broken Fang Gloves
If you want to keep your hands from getting cut up in the desert sand, then these are the wraps to wear. They’ll keep you nice and camouflaged as well, perfect for sneaking up on any enemies. It’s ~ $1200 for a Factory New copy of these or about ~ $110 for a pair of Battle-Scarred ones.
Giraffe Broken Fang Gloves
I love these. There’s nothing sillier to me than wearing the wrong kind of animal print in a battle, and Giraffe print is the absolute worst. Anyone wearing these should be kicked out of your team and made to watch from the corner. With Minimal Wear, these will cost you ~ $300, or ~ $150 for a Battle-Scarred pair.
Blood Pressure Broken Fang Gloves
These look gross, but I love them. It’s something about how the design makes me think of the muscle and sinew underneath your skin. It’s almost as if someone has ripped off their flesh in battle but is still fighting on. To look like you’re in that much pain, you’ll pay ~ $1,300 for a pair with Minimal Wear, or ~ $120 for a pair that are Battle-Scarred.
Finish Line Broken Fang Gloves
Like the gloves above, these are Moto Gloves, made to look like you’re about to jump in a rally car and set a new record time whilst also smashing up your vehicle. These ones are as obvious as it gets, but I think that’s okay if you’re into the style of being a rally driver. For Minimal Wear, these cost ~ $1,300, and at Battle-Scarred, you can buy a pair for ~ $220.
3rd Commando Company Broken Fang Gloves
These gloves look blood-stained and bruised. I love the look that they give to your character because it’ll feel like you’re actually in the heat of battle. Pristine gloves always ruin that fantasy, but here there’s nowhere to hide the reality of war from your eyes. At Factory New, these sell for ~ $1,200, but for Battle-Scarred, you can get them for ~ $80.
Smoke Out Broken Fang Gloves
Don’t get me wrong, I like the look of these gloves, but they feel a bit too sci-fi for CS:GO. It’s like someone took a Stormtrooper’s gloves from Star Wars and thrust them into a completely different universe. A bit jarring, but nice all the same. They sell for ~ $900 with Minimal Wear and ~ $130 when Battle-Scarred.
Marble Fade Broken Fang Gloves
Wow! Can you believe that these exist? The way that the colors have been implemented in this design are top-notch. I can’t quite believe that they exist in the game. I don’t understand how that sort of marbled mirror effect can be created in a texture in CS:GO. They’re probably the most expensive gloves so far at ~ $1,600 for a pair at Minimal Wear. Battle-Scarred ones are still expensive at ~ $250.
Tiger Strike Broken Fang Gloves
When you see these, you know you’re in trouble. These look like Kevlar-reinforced situations with some very good, yet very basic, decals on the top to make them appealing to the military badasses who will wear them. If I saw an enemy with these on, I’d worry about my safety. ~ $1,200 is the price for a pair with Minimal Wear, or ~ $220 for a pair that are Battle-Scarred.
Field Agent Broken Fang Gloves
Don’t underestimate this pair. They might not look like much, in fact, they look just like bog-standard rally driver gloves. However, they too hide the padding that marks a soldier who knows what they’re doing. If you’re in a battle with these on, it’s because you know your hands are the most important weapon you have. For a pair with Minimal Wear, you’ll pay ~ $900. Battle-Scarred pairs go for ~ $170.
LT. Commander Broken Fang Gloves
For the player that knows they’re the highest-ranking member of their team, these are the only gloves to wear. They combine the heavy armor aesthetic with tactical camouflage and actually look like they’d be great on a certain character with the nickname ‘Blueberries.’ For a pair with Minimal Wear, you’ll pay ~ $700. In contrast, a Battle-Scarred pair goes for ~ $200.
Scarlet Shamagh Broken Fang Gloves
These look like they’re for an incredibly stylish driver. If I was being driven around by someone with these on, I’d feel that not only was I in safe hands but that the person in the driver’s seat had impeccable taste. ~ $1,300 is the price for a pair with Minimal Wear, while Battle-Scarred pairs sell for ~ $400.
Slingshot Broken Fang Gloves
For these gloves, someone managed to find a bright red snake and skin it. There’s simply no other explanation for the way they look. they’re gorgeous, and they look malleable enough to make shooting and stabbing people very easy indeed. ~ $700 is the price for a Well-Worn pair, though you could get a Battle-Scarred pair for ~ $500 instead.
Big Game Broken Fang Gloves
Pulling out the best for the final stretch of gloves here is Big Game. These are a sort of camo that seems to be based on several animal patterns. It looks initially messy, but once you’ve spent some time analyzing what’s there, they look pretty great. I especially love the desert aesthetic underneath. ~ $700 is what you’ll pay for a pair with Minimal Wear, and ~ $230 is the price for a Battle-Scarred pair.
Nocts Broken Fang Gloves
The final pair of gloves in this list is the darkest black. Not even the dark knight himself would wear these because he wouldn’t be able to see his own hands. I love that while wearing these, you could slip into the night, and no one would even notice you were standing just beside them. It’s chilling. ~ $800 is the price for a pair with Minimal Wear, while Battle-Scarred pairs go for ~ $200 each.
Weapon skins in Operation Blood Fang
In terms of weapon skins, you’ve got three new collections to build up. These include:
The Control Collection
With the Control Collection, you’re looking at weapon skins that favor order over chaos. Each one features a design that feels distinctly militarized. If you love using tactics and order your squad around, then you’re almost certainly going to enjoy using these skins.
The Havoc Collection
For those who are all show, the Havoc Collection is here for you. There’s no need to hide what you’re doing. Get in, kill the enemy, and get out before anyone picks up on what you’re doing. This is the perfect set of skins for those who don’t quite play on a daily basis, but still have a lot of skills to show off.
The Ancient Collection
Finally, we have the Ancient Collection. These are all themed around jungle warfare. If you’ve ever seen an ad on TV for the Navy, or looked into covert operations in the military, this is very similar to what those soldiers are using. It’ll make you feel like you can hide in plain sight with any of these equipped on your weapons.
Let’s take a look at some of the best new weapon skins in detail.
Five-SeveN | Fairy Tale
This is a skin for the Classified Pistol, obtainable only through Operation Broken Fang. It’s pretty rare and will set you back £20 in Factory New Condition, or as low as $3 for a Battle-Scarred version.
M4A4 | Cyber Security
Another very rare skin that’s exclusive to Broken Fang. This one features an iconic cybernetics design that’s perfect with Cyberpunk 2077 coming out. It’ll cost you around $35 for Factory New, or $$6 for Battle-Scarred.
USP-S | Monster Mashup
Here we have a fan favorite skin that’s also got an incredible design. If you can’t tell, it looks like a dinosaur. This skin can go for as much as $15 in the higher quality conditions, but the price seems to have settled at the $4 on average.
M4A1-S | Printstream
This is a simple design, but it’s also very effective. It looks swish and sleek, like something you’d expect out of a brand new gun shop. It could even be futuristic, if this were any other game. This skin is quite expensive. It’ll sell for around $350 for Factory New, but if you’re lucky you might get it for $150 in a lower condition.
Glock-18 | Neo-Noir
Another fantastic skin for those who love cyberpunk aesthetics. It screams out with a futuristic setting, probably from some underground gang that uses augmentations to fight against authority. For Factory New, this will cost you $90 easily. For Battle-Scarred, you might get it for $10 if you’re lucky. You’ll have to keep your eyes peeled.
The second new game mode is called Retakes. In this mode, three Ts defend a bomb that has been planted against four CTs. It’s a fast-paced game mode that requires you to pick a loadout at the start of each round and live with it. Each match has eight rounds, meaning there’s a lot to play for even when it looks like you’ve lost.
The new performance tracking screen is exclusively available to those with the Operation Pass. All of your stats will be tracked automatically, allowing you to customize the screen to view the stats you care about at any given time. This is perfect for those who want to work on specific stats such as K/D Ratio or Accuracy.
The tracking software is also a lot more sophisticated than you might expect. While you can use it just to track your stats on a detailed screen with numbers, there are other options available to you.
The Map Performance page will give you an indication of where your skills lie on each map. You always have a good idea of which map is your favorite, but this screen shows you which one you’re the best player on. Armed with this knowledge, you know which maps you need to work on when it comes to accuracy, kills, or other stats.
The Weapon Stats page provides the same detailed data as the Map Performance one, but it’s all based on the weapons you use. Using this, you can track which weapons you’re getting the most/least kills with. It’s a great way to optimize your loadout, especially if you think you’re good with a weapon that, in fact, you’re getting very few kills with.
Finally, the screen also offers heatmaps for various aspects of your skills. These can show you where you spend the most time on each map, indicating areas you hide or get pinned down in. You can also track where you die the most, giving you an idea of each map’s points to avoid. Our favorite part of the heatmaps is the Accuracy Heatmap. This shows you where you hit targets, highlighting each section of the body and the percentage at which you land hits on it. Once again, this will help you optimize your loadout and figure out how you can get more kills in a match.
Every week, those with the Operation Pass can access a new Mission Card. These contain challenges and missions for players to complete over the rest of the week. You can complete missions, earning yourself stars in the process, through Competitive, Casual, Danger Zone, and Guardian modes and the two new modes: Broken Fang Premier and Retakes.
While you can still play these missions without the Operation Pass, you won’t earn those all-important stars when you complete them.
As you complete each mission, you’ll upgrade your Broken Fang Coin. This is a progress bar for the expansion, which can be upgraded from bronze through silver and gold, up to platinum.
The stars you earn from completing missions are spent on rewards, and you can choose what you get. You’ve got a wide range of rewards to choose from, including new agents from SWAT and The Professionals, three weapon collectibles, patches, a new weapon case, and much more.
In total, there are seven brand new maps in Operation Broken Fang. This includes two developer maps and five all-new community build maps. The following are just some of the new maps that you’ll be battling in across every game mode.
This map reminds us of the Jungle level in TimeSplitters 2. We’re sure it’s a lot more intense than that though.
Apollo is definitely inspired by a combination of NASA and a theme park. All you’ll find in CS:GO here is death.
Engage is a car manufacturing facility that’s now become the center of several high-octane operations.
Frostbite is a dreamy ski resort where everything has gone wrong, and the guns started firing long ago.
Guard appears to be an old European town where the modern world has exploded all around its citizens.
Another new feature that Operation Broken Fang adds is the Communication Wheel. This feature makes it possible to quickly and efficiently communicate with teammates using helpful pre-set commands. While you may want to use it in its default form, the wheel is fully customizable. Now all of those words and phrases you’ve developed with friends can be put into the game and used even more regularly.
How to Get CS:GO Operation Broken Fang
If you want to get involved with CS:GO Operation Broken Fang, then you need to buy the Operation Pass here. With that out of the way, you’ll be able to access everything we’ve listed above.
The best way to start with the expansion is definitely by picking up and completing the missions available as soon as possible. Completing these early will allow you to get ahead of the competition. It gives you a head start on everyone else who is out to collect everything and anything they can.
From there, you can start to track your stats and understand who you are as a player better. Take that feedback into consideration, and change the way you play accordingly. It might mean that you have to mix up your tactics or swap out weapons for ones you’re better with, but eventually, it will make you a more lethal player on every level.
That’s everything you need to know about CS:GO Operation Broken Fang. If you pick the pass up and find something new, something the developers haven’t told us about, let us know in the comments.
