RAINBOW SIX SIEGE OPERATION SHIFTING TIDES PATCH NOTES

Hold onto your seats, Operation Shifting Tides is rising from the depths. NIGHTHAVEN Special Intervention Group joins the fray as this season’s new ORG. Its owner, Kali, joins Six as the new Attacker. One of her best agents, Wamai, is also coming aboard as the new Defender.

These two Operators are unlike any that have come before and bring their particular talents to the roster. With them, expect a newly reworked Theme Park to surface, as well as a few other features worthy of note.

Specialist Jaimini Kalimohan “Kali” Shah isn’t someone who could be accused of taking pity on the weak. She’s more likely to kick you when you’re down than help you up. Yet the results are undeniable, and the soldiers she trains remain unmatched on the field...

There are very few people who can keep me guessing, but Specialist Ngugi Muchoki “Wamai” Furaha is one of them. His thought processes are fascinating, and the more I speak to him the more I find myself drawn into his world, deep underwater and free of all distractions...

KALI - ATK

PRIMARY: CSRX 300; SECONDARY: P226 MK25, C75-Auto; GADGET: Breach Charge, Claymore; SPEED: Medium; ARMOUR: Medium; UNIQUE ABILITY: LV Explosive Lance

To talk about the LV Explosive Lance, we need to mention Kali’s CSRX 300. It’s a dangerous weapon that can breach barricades and hatches in a single shot, and create big holes in breakable walls. The LV is its under-barrel, and it can be used at the same time as the CSRX 300’s scopes.

The LV is not your typical explosive. Just like the rifle, it can breach barricades and hatches, but it can also destroy Castle’s Armour Panels. These are not its main functions, however.

Its role is to destroy gadgets with a light explosion within a set radius. When used on a breakable wall, it will create a hole slightly smaller than what the sniper rifle would do. When shot at a reinforced wall, however, it simply lodges in surface.

In either case, it destroys all gadgets on both sides of breakable and reinforced surfaces. This makes it especially effective when played in tandem with a hard breach Operator like Thermite or Hibana.

Keep in mind that the LV Explosive Lance has three charges and is resistant to gadgets like Bandit and Kaid’s electrics, as well as Mute’s Signal Disruptors.

WAMAI - DEF

PRIMARY: AUG A2, MP5K; SECONDARY: D-40, P-12; GADGET: Barbed Wire, Deployable Shield; SPEED: Medium; ARMOUR: MEDIUM

Wamai’s gadget changes the game when it comes to ordnance suppression. Where his colleagues can disable and destroy, he redirects.

The Mag-NET System is a thrown, adhesive gadget. It sticks to surfaces and waits. Its function is to attract an opponent’s projectile to its position, and then self-destruct to detonate that projectile.

This way, not only can Wamai make Attackers’ grenades and projectile gadgets useless, he can also use strategic placement to turn those projectiles against them.

There’s nothing quite like a commandeered stun or frag grenade to turn the tide in Wamai’s favour.

Starting with one Mag-NET, Wamai regularly gains an additional charge up to a maximum of five.

Make sure to place them wisely, as they can be destroyed with a single hit should they be spotted.

MAP REWORK: THEME PARK

Did you miss Theme Park? With Operation Shifting Tides, it’s back and reworked! It might not look like it at first glance, but there are some massive changes coming.

There are some major indoors changes to unpack, but let’s start with two things that will affect your outdoor gameplay. First, lines of sight have been constricted to prevent most spawn peeks. Second, Rail Overlook and Lift Car, as well as their ramps, have been removed. The reasoning behind this is quite simple: we’re getting rid of train.

That’s right, the entire Rail Platform area is gone. Instead, the East and West sections of the building have been brought closer together, with Yellow Corridor (previously named Cafe Corridor) and Bunk connected to Office and Initiation Room through breakable walls.

Inside the building, there are a few things to notice, which mostly involve the East section.

The downstairs area has been remodelled with a thematic that represents the map’s origin, with the Gargoyle and Haunting Dining bomb sites replaced with the Throne Room and armoury pair. The new
