Ubisoft revealed the full details of the first season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6: Crimson Heist. This new season introduces Flores, a new Argentinian Operator, an entirely reworked Border map, and new Elite skins.
The new operator is a brand-new attacker, he is equipped with an original gadget called the RCE – Ratero Charge. Flores can deploy a remote-controlled explosive device at his feet and drive it through the map for a limited period of time. At the end of the timer (or earlier if Flores chooses to), the device will arm itself, become bulletproof, and start a short fuse timer, at the end of which it detonates in a powerful explosion. Flores is heavily armed with an AR33 or an SR-25 as a primary weapon, and a GSH-18 as a secondary weapon.
Ubisoft also detailed the reimagination of the Border map, which has been newly reworked with an interior balcony connecting the east staircase to the break room. Players will play in a new challenging environment with some entry blocked a reduced number of destructible walls and an additional outside staircase.
With this new season comes a new secondary gadget, the “Gonne-6”. This new weapon will do little damage to soft walls and Operators. The Gonne-6 should fight the torments of the “20-second meta” and the defense favored meta present in Year 5. Besides, additional updates presented in the Future of Siege will be implemented in Crimson Heist Test Server to get feedback from players: Match Replay Beta and Streamer Mode.
The Test Server for Crimson Heist is now available, the Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself.
