Ubisoft just released Operation High Calibre (the 24th seasonal update to Rainbow Six Siege). This release includes upgrades as usual, but also a new operator, an updated Outback map, customisation, balance, and quality-of life tweaks.
Thorn, the Irish defender who has been added to the team, isn’t the most exciting. The UZK50GI, a.50 GI SMG that Thorn is equipped with, is what makes her stand out from other updates. In the past few years, there have been many new operators who have entered the field. game. They all use recognisable weaponry that was repurposed from previous operators. Thorn’s SMG, like Frost’s 9mmC1, is one of the most powerful full-auto weapons in the game. 50-caliber general purpose rounds are also useful for drilling holes in walls and the ground. However, it does have some disadvantages. There is a limited magazine capacity of 22 rounds and a slow rate to fire. You don’t have to worry about buying new hardware. She can be outfitted with the M870 shotgun, the 1911 TACOPS pistol, or the C75 Auto secondary weapon.
Though weaponry is vital, the best Rainbow Six Siege players are well-rounded people. Thorn’s Razorbloom Shell devices are poised for significant impact on the game’s overall ops roster. This sticky fragmentation mine can be thrown and she has three Razorbloom Shells. These mines can be hidden almost anywhere Ela’s Grzmot Mines could be found. They have an activation range of three meters. After the device has been activated, the attacker is given a few seconds in which to locate the device, deactivate it, or escape the blast zone. If a direct hit occurs, this can lead to death.
You can expect strong cooperation between Clash, Melusi and Lesion. Counters are also reasonably typical — Thatcher, IQ, Twitch, Zero, Fuze, and Kali can assist in the discovery and destruction of each Razorbloom Shell.
Operation High Calibre addresses several issues related to balancing. Finka can now use her health boost in order to recover. This is a nice bonus. Valkyrie fans who are looking to play aggressively will be disappointed to discover that her throwable cameras no longer work outside of the game. If placed in open air, all defender-controlled cameras will stop working after ten seconds. Zero is now able to examine his cameras faster after deployment, which makes him more valuable in future intelligence gathering.
ELO-hungry players will ban Outback because it is significant and geared toward competitive and ranked play. Anchoring has been made easier by updating the objectives. There’s plenty of space to expand all site rooms. To keep things interesting, there are a mix of solid and breachable walls.
There are many other improvements to quality of life. It is important to note that the HUD has undergone a complete overhaul, which includes accessibility, readability, and game speed improvements. The elite skin customization update is also in development. This will allow players to customize their operator poses, their uniforms, and card for elite skins. The store will soon offer exotic weapon skins as the first category of microtransactions. These microtransactions can be modified to the weapon’s design and added animations. The single sample that we have seen is not as extravagant as Valorant’s ElderFlame cosmetics line. This should be reflected in pricing.
Tuesday, November 9th, 2021 is the planned launch date of the test server. This will include all next season’s content, as well as the bulletproof cam redesign, and HUD drone counter, both of which were announced earlier in the year. Rainbow Six Siege High Calibre has yet to be released. However, it usually happens three weeks after its beta testing.
