Today is the day for this Shifting Tides replace to Mr. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege that I maintain 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 brand new replace so you can begin serious about new strats earlier than you encounter these new operators within the wild.
The Shifting Tides replace is coming with a couple of totally different options that I’m positive I’ll study in even better element after I hear my associate loudly calling them out to teammates in our workplace. Until I’ve the possibility to correctly examine by proximity, Ubisoft’s particulars on the 2 new operators must suffice. The new offensive operator Kali comes outfitted with a CSRX 300 bolt-action sniper rifle with breach costs and claymores as devices. A bolt-action rifle looks like an odd alternative for a close-quarters game like R6 however feels like it should pair nicely with the brand new limb penetration function.
Weapons will probably 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, alternatively, is for penetrating arms however not complete our bodies. Weapons with this score can punch by means of the legs and arms of a goal to hit a extra important spot however can’t proceed on to strike further targets behind the primary. Frankly I’m stunned it’s taken so lengthy to shoot by means of 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 alternative named Wamai whose Mag-NET particular means feels like his predominant 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 varied elements both modified or eliminated.
