CS:GO opens up Broken Fang Premier access to all players

The game mode is now available to all players until the end of Operation Broken Fang on April 30

Valve has announced that all Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players will now have access to Operation Broken Fang’s premium queue, Broken Fang Premier. With the operation set to end on April 30, this gives players a whole month to sink their, well, fangs into the game mode.

As stated in the announcement post, Broken Fang Premier “introduces a pick/ban phase to the start of a competitive match.” The mode covers the entire Active Duty map pool – the maps utilised in official Valve tournaments – allowing players to “test their mettle” in the same competitive environment as the pros.

According to the accompanying patch notes, players who either already have the Operation Pass, or possess a Prime account will be matched together in a separate queue to free players. Presumably, this is a measure to try and prevent cheaters from infiltrating paid access games.

The announcement tweet can be seen below.

Additionally, for those with the Operation Pass, Valve offers a reminder that you only have a month left “to complete missions, collect stars, and redeem rewards from the Operation Shop.” Time to get cracking.
