Today is the day for this Shifting Tides replace to Mr. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege that I hold listening to a lot about. There’s a returning map, two new operators, and the addition of limb penetration. Here are the highlights from the new replace so you can begin desirous about new strats earlier than you encounter these new operators in the wild.
The Shifting Tides replace is coming with a number of totally different options that I’m positive I’ll be taught in even better element after I hear my associate loudly calling them out to teammates in our workplace. Until I’ve the prospect to correctly research by proximity, Ubisoft’s particulars on the two new operators must suffice. The new offensive operator Kali comes geared up with a CSRX 300 bolt-action sniper rifle with breach costs and claymores as devices. A bolt-action rifle looks like an odd selection for a close-quarters sport like R6 however seems like it’ll pair effectively with the new limb penetration function.
Weapons shall be separated into three kinds of penetration: none, easy, or full. Shots from a weapon with full penetration “will go through an Operator and hit other Operators behind them for 30% reduced damage for each additional penetration.” Presumably that is the class that Kali’s rifle falls into. Simple penetration, then again, is for penetrating arms however not whole our bodies. Weapons with this ranking can punch by the legs and arms of a goal to hit a extra very important spot however can not proceed on to strike extra targets behind the primary. Frankly I’m shocked it’s taken so lengthy to shoot by arms in R6 Siege given all of the a lot much less fleshy items of the surroundings that appear to get breached on a regular basis.
The second new operator is a defensive selection named Wamai whose Mag-NET particular potential seems like his principal draw. The adhesive gadget can connect to partitions and ceilings and such and attracts different thrown explosives and forces them to detonate. “This way, not only can Wamai make Attackers’ grenades and projectile gadgets useless, he can also use strategic placement to turn those projectiles against them.” Ubisoft say.
Shifting Tides additionally means the return of the reworked Theme Park map with numerous components both modified or eliminated.
You can learn the extra detailed patch notes from Ubisoft’s site and should you’re so inclined, snag Rainbow Six Siege on Steam with a 60% low cost for the subsequent hour-and-a-bit till Steam’s Autumn Sale ends.
