During this weekend’s Pro League Finals, held in Tokoname, Japan, Ubisoft revealed details on the fourth and final event of Year 4 in its tense tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Operation Shifting Tides brings two new operators into the fold, alongside a new map rework and a small selection of mechanical tweaks.
Our first operator, hailing from India is Attacker Kali. The head of her own private military faction, NIGHTHAVEN, Kali is the first dedicated sniper to join the squad of deadly R6 operators in some time. Kali is equipped with a CSRX 300 Sniper Rifle, an immensely powerful bolt-action weapon that can breach multiple walls, barricades, and bodies with a single slug, essentially making enemy pings an instant crosshair for the sharpshooter.
Her gadget is attached to the CSRX 300 as an under-barrel weapon. The LV Explosive Lance can be fired into walls and barricades, immediately destroying all nearby gadgets attached on either side, thus prepping a room for safe breaching, clearing out anti-projectile tools, or simply inducing panic in the enemy. The real tool of note here, however, is the primary rifle, which will attract many a player do to its incredible one-shot capabilities.
