Operation Breakout launched

ImageValve Corporation released a major update along with the new operation for CS:GO.

Less than a week ago we reported that Valve Corporation is planning to make adjustments in the weapon balance areas, mostly affecting the CZ75-Auto pistol. The weapon was introduced in February this year as an alternative to the P250 and since then had huge impact on the strategic buying and the money system overall. Valve Corporation did an investigation and collected statistics from the world scene and high ranked matchmaking players and came up with the conclusion that the fully automatic pistol is overused and needs to be adjusted. Fortunately yesterday the Washington-based Corporation applied a major update that not only adjusted several weapons, including the CZ75-Auto, but also significantly improved the entire gameplay.

The new update introduced an updated Buy Menu, which now displays detailed information, such as damage, recoil control, movement rate and penetration power about each weapon. It also changed the loading screens and team select screen.

Most importantly the bullet penetration also known as wallbanging system has been tweaked. More information about this can be found here.

Furthermore map changes have also been applied to Mirage, Nuke, Dust II, Inferno and Militia. Most affected was Inferno, where we have general graphical update, thinner pillars, updated skybox and several other tweaks.

Together with the major update, the new Operation Breakout has been launched. Six community maps were added and of course a new Operation Breakout Case has been introduced, which features new Butterfly knife similar to the Huntsman Case. It also gives a new opportunity to win skins with the brand new Operation Breakout Missions. The player will receive a random challenge and if completed will be rewarded with a skin from three new collections. More information about the new Operation Breakout can be found here.
