Rainbow Six Siege recently started offering its Year 4 season pass, which will include (among other things) eight new operators, and its first season’s operators might have just leaked.
If the leaks are correct, Mozzie will be the defender with a device that will give her control of an enemy drone when they “roll into” her device. This makes it sound like Mozzie’s device will be some kind of roach motel–style contraption for drones, which might be a little too easy for attackers to avoid. Obviously, Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed this yet, so it might be too early to jump to conclusions. The basic idea of a defender that can take over attackers’ drones is pretty cool, though.
Gridlock, on the other hand, is purportedly an attacker that can lay down a trap that will not only injure enemy operators who walk on it but will also give off a sound that can alert attackers to their presence. This might seem like a more defensively minded gadget for an attacking operator, but it could be useful against roaming defenders like Caveira or Vigil. DansomeWoja posted an image of Gridlock’s alleged gadget to corroborate these details.
These details mimic an earlier leak published to Reddit (via Windows Central) that describe these same gadgets as “Drone Hack” and “Trax Deployed” datamined game files. “Drone Hack” seems to obviously reference Mozzie’s gadget, but “Trax Deployed” is a little harder to parse. It’s possible that Gridlock’s gadget might even track roamers beyond signaling with a nose. The spikes on his gadget might even cause enemy players who step on it to bleed, leaving a track of blood for attackers to use to find them.
Ubisoft hasn’t announced when Year 4 will officially kick off, but players have until March 4th to pre-order the season pass and receive a fancy new Volcano weapon skin, so we’re guessing it’ll start in the middle of March. Meanwhile, Operation Wind Bastion launched a few weeks ago and introduced two new operators and a new map to the game.
