"Rainbow Six Siege" Reveals Details On Operation Shifting Tides

During the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Season 10 Finals in Tokoname, Japan, Ubisoft revealed details on Operation Shifting Tides. First off, two new operators in Kaki and Wamai, the first who has a sniper rifle that does a lot of quick damage in close quarters maps, while the latter has a magnet that can pull your projectiles up and away from your intended target. Plus, a reworked map, as Theme Park just got an upgrade with better room and more lights. They will come with the next new update, along with a new skin for Capitão. The update will go live on the Rainbow Six Siege test servers on November 11th before making its way to the main game.

Indian Attacker Kali and Kenyan Defender Wamai are the two new operators coming in Operation Shifting Tides. They met in the NIGHTHAVEN Special Intervention Company, a private military group owned and led by Kali. She is equipped with a CSRX 300 sniper rifle that can breach barricades and hatches in a single shot. Her gadget is its under-barrel, the LV Explosive Lance, that destroys all gadgets on both sides of breakable and reinforced surfaces. Wamai is Kali's best operator at NIGHTHAVEN. His gadget, the Mag-NET System, can attract enemy projectiles and have them detonate at its location. Wamai can make Attackers' grenades and projectile gadgets useless, or better, turn them against their users.

In addition to these two new Operators, players will be able to explore a reimagined Theme Park map, which is back and newly reworked. The Rail Platform has been removed and the East and West sections have been brought closer together. Inside the building, the East section has largely evolved, primarily the downstairs area. Gargoyle and Haunting Dining bomb sites are replaced with the Throne Room and Armory pair. The new Gong Room in this area also becomes the main entrance, while the Arcade Entrance is now blocked.

Additional updates include the following:

  • Limb penetration system has been implemented

  • Rappel exist will request a prompt from player to enter rappel

  • Operators price decrease (Hibana, Echo, Dokkaebi, Vigil, Zofia, Nomad and Kaid)
