Valve have released Counter Strike: Global Offensive’s latest operation, Operation Shattered Web. Shattered Web, which comes before the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, brings the operation system more in line with the battle pass system we see in other titles. This was to be expected when CSGO went free to play in 2018.
Every week (For the next 16 weeks), players will receive a mission card featuring six missions that can be completed at your own pace in any order. As you complete these missions you will earn stars that can be used to unlock new weapon collections, graffiti, stickers and brand new Agent skins.
How to earn new Character Models
CSGO now has unlockable skins available. New models for CT-side operators and T-side agents are unlockable through mission rewards. These range from unique character models such as Sabre agent, Maximus to CSGO’s first female character, Special Agent Ava.
You will be able to earn one of these unique ‘Master Agents’ when you earn 100 stars.
How much does the Shattered Web cost?
The Shattered Web pass will cost players £12.49. This will unlock the entire operation as well as reward unlocks and an XP boost. You can play the missions without the pass however you will not receive any rewards.
New Skins for Weapons
With Shattered Web comes four new weapon collections:
- The Shattered Web Case
- The Norse Collection
- The St.Marc Collection
- The Canals Collection
The Shattered Web Case can be opened with a chance to receive four original knives and a series of new weapon skins for the likes of the AWP, SG 553 and Tec-9.

- New 'low gravity' map set on a lunar outpost called Lunacy.
