The long wait is finally over, and Valve has finally shipped the much-anticipated tenth operation to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The new CSGO operation, named ‘Operation Broken Fang’ brings in a whole bunch of new additions to the competitive shooter. However, the ones that caught our attention the most were the new ‘Retake’ game mode and the Chat Wheel effects.
Retake Mode In CSGO Operation Broken Fang
If you have browsed the community servers’ section of the game, then you’re probably already familiar with the ‘Retake’ mode. However, the new and official Retake has some extra twists for those of you that are bored by the previous version.
For starters, this game mode will strictly be a 3 vs 4 matchups, where three Ts will defend an already planted C4 against 4 CTs. Players will also be able to choose a loadout card at the beginning of each round to retake (or defend) the bomb site. The first team to get to 8 round wins are declared the winners.
This game mode is available for every CSGO player regardless if they purchased the Operation pass or not. In case you haven’t tried this mode yet, we strongly recommend you do.
Chat Wheel Sounds In CSGO Operation Broken Fang
We can already hear the Dota 2 players celebrating over this new addition. Similar to the MOBA, a fully-customizable chat wheel has been implemented in CSGO.
Quickly communicate with teammates by selecting common commands in a fully-customizable chat wheel,” the official blog post states. “Commands generate contextual pings that can be viewed by your teammates, and the resulting call-outs will automatically be translated in chat.”
This seems to be a nice addition to the game since it prevents players without microphones from the hassle of typing every callout in maps. This also speeds up the process of giving callouts, which can now be done in a matter of milliseconds with a single press of a button.
The Operation Broken Fang Pass is priced at $15 USD, which is almost similar to that of last year’s Operation Shattered Web.
