Clearing Out the Cobwebs

Operation Shattered Web wraps up today. Thanks to all of the CS:GO players who participated–over the span of the operation, they completed over 136 million missions!

The operation may be over, but there’s more to see in today’s update.

New Maps

Today we are adding two community created maps to our official matchmaking pool in Scrimmage and Casual game modes. Check out Anubis and Chlorine, two of the top finalists in Mapcore’s 2019 Exotic Places map contest.

Prisma 2 Collection

Today we’re also introducing the Prisma 2 Collection! Lightly based on Anime/Manga themes, the collection features 17 community created weapon finishes, as well as the chance to receive one of the Horizon knives in Chroma finishes.

Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx launches March 23rd, and we’re celebrating the release in CS:GO! Half-Life themed Stickers, Collectible Pins, and Patches are now available for purchase in-game.

Valve Index


If you purchased Valve Index hardware prior to Alyx’s release, you’ll receive a Genuine version of the Alyx Pin from the new collection, as well as an exclusive Half-Life: Alyx Music Kit!

Grand Finale


We’re in the final weeks of Operation Shattered Web, and players have until March 30th to play missions, earn progress, and redeem Operation rewards.

Today the final mission card goes live which means we’ll start issuing Diamond Operation Coins to users who have completed 100 missions. This week’s card, “Time To Take Out The Trash”, includes a second co-op Strike mission tasking players with finding and eliminating Franz Kriegeld. Don’t let him escape!

Patch Notes

Today’s update includes a revamped buy menu, a simple way to customize (and share) your crosshair, and an all new way to personalize your favorite agents! 

Introducing Patches


Looking for a way to personalize your agent? Patches featuring a variety of classic designs can now be applied to specific locations on each character model, and you can apply more than one for each agent. You can find patches in the CS:GO Patch Pack, available now.

Choose Your Own Crosshair


Customizing your crosshair has never been easier. Head over to the settings menu, where you’ll find a variety of crosshair settings that can be tuned to your personal taste. You can share your crosshair code with others or import a code to try someone else’s.

Full Buy


Today’s update also includes a visual rework of the buy menu, featuring an interactive preview of your character holding weapons and equipment. Along with some slight rearranging, now you can preview the equipment you can afford with illuminated icons in the buy wheel.
