Testing is about to start

Recently, Ubisoft has introduced the first of two new operators who will run into the team shooter Rainbow Six Siege with the release of new update «Operation Grim Sky». It was British lady - Clash (defense).

Main device: ballistic shield, shooting electrical discharges. One hit takes 3 HP.

Secondary weapons: SPSMG9 submachine gun or P-10C pistol.

Secondary device: a choice of shock grenades or barbed wire.

Clash got maximum armor and minimum speed. At the same time, she can’t attack with a shield in melee combat and lowers it if an enemy hits the shield. It looks like a good partner for the roamer, but it is traditionally vulnerable alone.Use EMP grenades to disable the shocker, and while the operator is flashed, ganking the shield is a common practice.

Attack side receives an update - American operator Maverick.

Main device: torch, burns out holes in usual and even hardened surfaces: fortified doors, barricades, stationary shields and hatches are free for shooting. The fuel is limited and figured metal cutting takes some time. Mind to be covered by a teammate.

Primary weapon: M4 or DMR AR-15 .50 caliber 

Secondary weapon: M1911 with a modified handle.

Secondary device: smoke grenades or "Claymore" mine.

Maverick is completely opposite to British Clash. The American attacker received high speed and minimal armor.

Grim Sky will change the «Base Hereford» map.The update affects raining on the street, everything looks gray and gloomy, but it's not of the main importance. The most interesting thing is that the architecture has changed a lot to influence gameplay. For example, there are new stairs, and each floor has become more spacious.

The map wasn’t balanced enough before. Let's hope it will play better now, with a much more detailed environment and increased floor space. If only darkness and rain did not interfere with the game.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Grim Sky launches a test server on August 20. The operation will be available in about a month after the test starts.
