Counter-Strike: GO Operation Hydra Event Offers New Maps, Weekly Modes
Plus a campaign for Hydra Pass owners.
Thirsting for something new to do in Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Operation Hydra should do the trick, bringing new maps, a few old ones and unique modes every week. Though the content will be available for all players, the Hydra Pass will offer a few extra items at $5.99, including new weapon design finishes and a campaign.
The unique modes are broken up into three types – War Games, which is a 2v2, best of 16 match; Weapons Expert, which only allows you to buy a single weapon once per match; and War Games which features different modifiers. Modifiers include Heavy Assault Suit which comes into play during bomb defusal and allows players to tank their heart out; Headshots Only where only headshots can kill; Hunter-Gatherers which functions much like Kill Confirmed from Call of Duty; and more.
The event will run for the next 18 weeks (up till September essentially) and features seven community maps. Four of these will be new and three will be returning. What are your thoughts on the new event? Let us know in the comments below.
