Rainbow Six Siege Crystal Guard brings map reworks, a new operator, and much more
Ubisoft has announced Crystal Guard, the third season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6. This new season brings with it a new operator in Osa, a military engineer from Croatia, among other updates like light reworks of the maps Coastline, Bank and Clubhouse, and many more.
In Crystal Guard, players will discover a brand-new attacker, Osa, equipped with Talon-8 Clear Shield: a transparent bulletproof shield that she can deploy on the ground, in doorframes, or in window frames. She can navigate with the shield in her hands if needed, albeit with certain restrictions (weapon stored, no sprint, no prone). Osa is a medium speed, medium armor Operator, equipped with 556 Xl or PDW9 as a primary weapon and the PMM as a secondary weapon.
Additional updates coming with Crystal Guard include:
- Elite customization: players are now able to equip any headgear with an Elite Uniform if they own both and belong to the same Operator
- Operator balancing (Twitch, IQ, Fuze, Mute)
- Flash Detection System
- Gadget damage adjustments
- Armor rework
- RIM lighting that highlights opponents to avoid unfair camouflage
Rainbow Six Siege will also release a new Collector case in Fall 2021 and will be exclusive to the Ubisoft Official Shops which you can also check out on Shopee (Shopee SG, Shopee MY, Shopee ID). The Collector’s case includes exclusive goodies such as a replica of Sledge’s hammer, the Sparkle Tachanka chibi, and digital content for Rainbow Six Siege.
The Test Server for Crystal Guard will go live on August 17, with Osa coming on August 18. Rainbow Six Siege is also finally getting its second Elite skin from Resident Evil: Lion “Leon S. Kennedy” Elite and will be available on August 17.
Rainbow Six Siege is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
