A new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive operation years in the making titled Operation Shattered Web brings a ton of new weapon skins in four new cases for players to collect.

Shattered Web came out of nowhere on November 18 to stun Counter-Strike fans across the world and bringing new playable content to CS:GO for the first time in almost three years.

Weekly missions, which can be completed in any of the game’s matchmaking game modes, which allows players to earn in-game rewards tied into the new set.

The new cases are all themed around the Shattered Web Operation and three of the new maps coming out along with it: Norse, St. Marc, and Canals.

So, what are the new cases and their skins?

As we said before there are four new sets of weapon skins available in the new cases for Shattered Web. One is the aptly-named Shattered Web Case along with the Norse, St. Marc, and Canals cases.

Skins like the Decimator Tec-9 and Bloodshot for the SSG 8 are sure to be popular, but the event’s namesake case seems to have something for everyone.

The cases will also give players a chance to unlock one of four new knives, the Paracord knife, Survival, Nomad, and Skeleton knives.

The Norse Collection

The Norse Collection cases feature skins designed by CS:GO modder The Honey Badger and they definitely contain a few skins that players will want to get their hands on.

The badass Mjölnir Negev skin or the impressive Gungir AWP will probably become two of the most sought after cosmetics from this collection.

The St. Marc Collection

Like the Norse collection, St. Marc cases also feature designs from a CS:GO community member, video game artist Chemical Alia.

The St. Marc Collection has a collection of tropical-themed skins that are sure to keep players warm during the cold winter months.

The Canals Collection

CS:GO The Canals Collection

The Canals Collection features designs from CS:GO YouTuber Teo and “The Prince” AWP skin might be one of the best out of all the new cases.

The Cinquedea MAG-7 is nothing to scoff at either, and both should be fetching fairly high prices on the marketplace before too long.
