In cs go 100% true. Every operation has useless boring task: kill x with y weapon, smoke there, win x mani matches on hiv inducing maps.
Only fun things in operation are the co-op missions, but they require work so we only get 1 or 2 each operation.
Skins are overrated too, at least for the guns and gloves. Skins for player models are broken, i cant kill t models with white head and ct players with green models are less visible in some maps.
