Rainbow Six Siege’s Next Operation Will Add A Cool New Grappling Hook And A Reworked Kanal

Ubisoft announced new details about the upcoming third season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 were announced today at the Rainbow Six Major in Raleigh. A new operation is coming called Ember Rise. It will add two new operators, a revamped version of the map Kanal, a battle pass system and a series of quality of life improvements to the game.

The most exciting of the two new operators is Amaru, an attacker from Peru. She comes equipped with standard weapons, but will also be able to use a new grappling hook tool. The Garra hook will let her zip to the tops of buildings and into windows, where she can actually use her speed to kick and kill opponents standing close to the window.

The other new operator is Goyo, a defender from Mexico who was raised by Amaru. Goyo has a Volcan shield which can provide cover, but it also has a special ability. It has an incendiary bomb attached to it that can burst and deal fire damage to any nearby enemies.

Kanal, a classic map that has been around in Rainbow Six Siege for years, is getting a full rework. Ubisoft says this rework is intended to make the map easier to navigate and move through, with new stairs and paths linking parts of the map. Bomb sites have also been moved to new areas.

With this new season and operation, Siege will introduce a Battle Pass system, starting with a smaller pass named “Call Me Henry.” According to a press release from Ubisoft, the “Mini Battle Pass” is “Phase 1 of Rainbow Six Siege’s Battle Pass deployment in Year 4 and will launch during Year 4 Season 3 for free.” That sentence sounds like gibberish the more I read it, but the takeaway is Battle Passes are coming to Siege.

Beyond these bigger changes, Ubisoft promises improved menus, new updates to fight player toxicity and better map rotation for different playlists. These changes will go live on the Rainbow Six Siege test server on August 19, where Ubisoft will watch for bugs and balance issues.

No release date was given for when the update would hit the main version of the game.

Ubisoft Will Ban Players Who Crashed Rainbow Six Siege Matches By Spamming Chat Symbols

Ubisoft just fixed an exploit that was allowing Rainbow Six Siege players to force their opponents to lag by filling up the game’s chat window with random symbols. Players who abused it to get an advantage in the competitive shooter will be temporarily banned.

Exploits in Rainbow Six Siege are like Whac-A-Mole. When one gets fixed—like the Clash glitch that allowed the character to shoot through her shield—another pops up—like the shield making her invulnerable even to melee attacks. The latest issues players have been contending with revolves around the game’s chat window. When one team wanted to crash the game or cause their opponent’s lag to spike, they would fill the window with a string of as many symbols as it could take, usually dollar signs, greater than symbols, or ampersands.

By forcing the game to lag, the offending players were sometimes able to disrupt the matches at key times or force their opponents to disconnect entirely, something that was especially frustrating for those competing in the game’s ranked mode.

“We have now deployed the fix for the chat symbol exploit,” Ubisoft announced in a Reddit post last night. In addition, the company said that players who used it were guilty of breaking the part of the game’s Code of Conduct that forbids people from interrupting “the general flow of Gameplay in the Game Client.”

“These bans are targeting players that abused the chat symbol exploit to crash matches,” a studio rep noted. “They will have varying lengths, depending on the frequency and severity of the exploit’s usage. This is our next step towards sanctioning players that knowingly and deliberately take advantage of exploits to the detriment of the overall match.”

This immediately led some players to fear that they might be banned simply for triggering the exploit accidentally or trying to recreate it to confirm that it existed and was an issue. “We accounted for that,” senior community developer Craig Robinson said on Twitter. “If you did it less than 10 times you’re safe.”

Other players have already called on Ubisoft to crack down harder on people believed to be cheating. “On a side note, this should expand to people who use glitches (such as Clash shield) in Ranked,” wrote user LiberDBell on Reddit. Traditionally, the only players at risk of being banned in multiplayer games are those engaged in harassment or cheating enabled by third-party software. With this latest wave of bans, Ubisoft has made it clear it intends to also sanction players who try to cheat by exploiting problems in the game itself.

Rainbow Six Siege’s ‘Rainbow Is Magic’ Is More Than A Throwaway Joke

Image: Ubisoft

“Rainbow Is Magic,” a special event added to Rainbow Six Siege for April Fools’ Day and running until April 8, brings over-the-top silliness, teddy bears, and lots and lots of pink to the tactical shooter. The whimsical vibe of a children’s animated show is not something you’d expect to see in a Rainbow Six game, but it makes me want more. I’m totally in this for the bedazzled guns and unicorns.

I’ve seen some hilariously fun April Fools’ Day modes in my time, including the introduction of Prop Hunt in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, but Ubisoft really went all out for this event. Rainbow Is Magic puts you on a colorful, toy-sized variant of the classic “Plane” map. The mission objective is to rescue or defend a teddy bear hostage, and this plays out much like a standard game of Hostage mode with an added cartoon aesthetic. Honestly, the redesign is so well thought out that I wish we could play this special event on more than one map.

Ubisoft decked out the toy version of Plane with adorable wallpaper. Some of the plane’s interior is covered with unicorns or a collage of kittens, but some walls are jazzed up with neon lights in the shape of hearts. I feel like someone at Ubisoft binge-watched My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic to get this kind of inspiration, which is totally cool with me.

Obviously, you can’t just waltz onto a toy plane in standard Siege gear, so Rainbow Is Magic puts each Operator in a unique costume. Blackbeard would probably frighten the teddy bear hostage, but to be fair, his candy-esque makeover also gives him an almost equally terrifying man bun. My personal favorite is Tachanka, who sports a pretty sweet unicorn helmet.

And since the Operators are dressed like wacky action figures with guns, it further fits the theme that bullet-hole animations appear as star shapes, shooting out confetti on impact. There really is so much attention to detail with Rainbow Is Magic. Siege’s regular mission narrator has even been replaced with a lovely lady who sounds like she’s the perfect candidate to read you a bedtime story.

VIP Hostage “Mr. Bear”

Almost every detail of the plane received a fun new look, which makes me ponder what other maps would work for the whimsical theme. Perhaps the Kafe Dostoyevsky building might make an interesting transformation into a giant toy shop. It could be three floors of 1980s toys come to life, because 80s kids had some pretty wild stuff and toy stores were still relevant. “Theme Park” is a pretty run-down map, but it could be brought back to life with vibrant colors and maybe some robots. Yes, a theme park of killer robots.

I’ve confessed my love for Siege’s zombie-filled “Outbreak” event in the past, but Rainbow Is Magic gave me unexpected silliness that I didn’t know I wanted. I take Siege more seriously than my other favorite shooters, but this event reminded me that it’s okay to be ridiculous every now and then, even in a super-serious tactical setting. Rainbow Six Siege is over three years old and still aging nicely with a constant flow of new maps and Operators, but I’d love to see more frequent events like this to keep the game spicy. Give me more zombies or teddy bears. Give me zombie teddy bears on Theme Park. I’m not scared.
