Ubisoft is preparing to push live a new update to Rainbow Six Siege‘s test server on PC.

Kicking things off in this update is the previously announced Pick and Ban system, which will let teams take turns picking Operators and banning the other team from using certain Operators. During the test, Ubisoft is looking for feedback on the UI and overall player experience with the Pick and Ban settings active.

“Pick and Ban is a set of custom game options that players are able to activate when they create a custom game,” the developer explains. “To play with the new Pick and Ban system, you will first need to create a custom game. Then navigate to the match settings section of the custom game options. From here, you can activate/deactivate the ban feature. You will also need to select the time per ban phase. To mirror the Pro League settings, you will also want to activate 6th pick, and select the time for this pick phase. Finally, set the round rotation to Win/Play.”

As well as this, a change is being made to Operator speed to address the balance between armor and speed. As part of the update, the speed of 3 Speed Operators has been reduced and the speed of 1 Speed Operators has been increased. Characters will also get an increase to movement speed when using a handgun (Automatic sidearms excluded).

This test update also gives certain Operators a deployable bulletproof camera as a secondary gadget, gives Echo a second Yokai drone, and adjusts the recharge rate of his gadget.

More information about the test update can be found here.
