That’s right, it’s finally happened, a new CS:GO Operation called Operation Wildfire. We can finally enjoy a new and long overdue Operation to take our minds off of Competitive again. Plus, we all know that when a new Operation comes knocking, that means a new weapons case with all new weapon skins as well as a new knife. It also comes with the standard Operation Coin that ranks up as you complete missions, and receive stars from the Operation Wildfire missions and Gemini Campaign. Personally I like this coin the most out of all the previous Operation Coins, as it looks very well done. There is also a re-work of the old map de_Nuke, but I’ll be discussing more about that in a later post.
With Operation Wildifre comes with new Missions as well as the new Campaign. However unlike it’s predecessors, the Operation Wildfire campaign Gemini has only one path to choose from with several run-off missions, as opposed to the two-path layout from the previous campaigns. It exclusively features the Co-operative missions, or Guardian Missions, that were rather enjoyable from Operation Bloodhound and were very replayable. There are also the usual missions for Arms Race, Deathmatch, and other game modes that were available in the other Operations, which is always to be expected.
There is a new case on the playground, the Wildfire Case, which features various well-designed and beautiful new skins: the M4A4 | Battlestar, FAMAS | Valence, AWP | Elite Build, Mag-7 | Praetorian, and the Desert Eagle | Kumicho Dragon, which seems to be a new cousin of the Dual Berettas skin Dueling Dragons.
As stated before there is also the new Bowie knife which, based on the opinions of my co-workers and friends, looks much better than the previous Shadow Daggers that came from the Shadow Case. It certainly reminds you of the old Counter-Strike 1.6 knife, back when that was the only one around. As with all new Skins and Knives the prices will vary wildly for a little while before they settle down. We can expect to see them selling like hot cakes on the market, both on Steam and on OPSkins.com, when the seven day un-tradeable period is over.
With this new operation, the community can look forward to having something to do over the next few months while waiting for the next Counter-Strike: Global Offensive majors to happen.
Onward to glory, Operatives!
