Ubisoft has unveiled Operation Shifting Tides, detailing its latest wave of content headed to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The final seasonal update of 2019 delivers new Operators Kali and Wamai, accompanied by a reworked Theme Park.
Taking to the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals, Ubisoft detailed two new playable Operators on the horizon, under the Nightraven private military company. Kali leads the charge as a fresh Indian attacker, equipped with the CSRX-300 bolt-action sniper rifle, boasting high-damage capable of instantly downing foes. It doubles with the new LV Explosive Lance, an underslung launcher capable of eradicating gadgets either side of soft and reinforced walls. She provides a much-needed alternative to Thatcher, especially valuable as Pick and Ban finds its home in Ranked.
Holding the defensive line in new Kenyan specialist Wamai, with an alternative anti-projectile gadget set to rival existing Operator Jager. The Mag-NET system provides a creative solution to countering throwables and launchers, capturing device mid-flight, resetting their timer, and detonating them from a new position. Pairing that interruption with smart position can turn gadgetry back on attackers, rather than the binary counter used by Jager.
