Valve’s at it again with more Counter Strike: Global Offensive content, publishing an official new community-created map pack dubbed Operation Breakout, plucked straight from the embrace of Counter-Strike’s ever-busy mapping and modding community..

Splash out your hard-earned $6 and a portion of the proceeds will go to the map creators, whose six new maps will now be circulating on the official matchmaking servers. Just like the previous Operations these maps make up some the latest and greatest of the custom mapping community…

The six new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive maps comprise BlackGold, Castle, Insertion, Mist, Overgrown, and Rush. The maps are from some of the Counter-Strike modding community’s biggest names, including Psy, Yanzl and Invalid.

The 600MB update is available to CS:GO players now, while those who grab the all access pass for $6 will get the exclusive operation challenge coin as well as access to a number of Operation Breakout specific missions and rewards, including new weapon finishes and the all-new Butterfly Knife.

Thinking of dusting off your copy of CS:GO for another go? Is it worth spending $6 to play these unofficial maps on Valve’s official matchmaking servers? Let us know what you think below!

not really new modes from what ive played, but maps are placed into categories. However the Operation Breakout not only drops the new gun skins and creates, but it also drops challenges or missions. For example win a game on a certain competitive map or i got a drop mission to kill 30 people in deathmatch with a nova shotgun. However i believe you can only complete these challenges using official

servers. I tried to win the challenge on local competitive servers but no luck. So in order to beat the challenge i have to connect to the official deathmatch server which means 200-300 ms ping

i play all these operation content and get the coins too. I actually end up not paying anything for these, i mean, after i get a case drop i sell it on the market for like $0.50 -$3 depending how new the cases are. I have sold over $90 of drops, so technically dont pay for anything =D I personally like the operation content cos it comes with new skins for guns and new maps cos old ones get boring
