Ubisoft has decided to nerf Rainbow Six Siege’s two newest Operators after just a few days of testing.

An update pushed to the test server on PC makes a small change to Kaid that lowers the amount of Electroclaws that he has down to two and reduces the amount of points gained for deploying them down to two.

Nomad has also been nerfed in this update with a change to her Airjab that removes its ability to detect targets while traveling and adds a 1.5 second delay between the moment it sticks and detonation. These changes will give players more chance to react to the ability.

Other changes made in this update include an increase in IQ’s gadget detection range, a reduction in damage when meleeing electrified barbed wire, and an increase in the .44 Mag Semi Auto’s recoil. Read the full patch notes below:

Balancing

  • Kaid

    • Lowered number of electroclaws to 2

    • Players now only receive 2 points for deploying electroclaw

  • Nomad

    • Airjab will no longer detect targets while traveling

    • 1.5s delay on warhead between the moment it sticks and the moment it will activate

  • IQ

    • Increase to IQ’s gadget detection range from 15m to 20m

  • Lowered damage taken when meleeing electrified barbed wires from 15 to 3/damage tick.

  • Increased recoil for .44 Mag Semi Auto

Bugfixes

  • Fixed – Incorrect weapon stats/damage values are displayed in menu.
  • Fixed – After being pushed back by Nomad, operator can get stuck on the EXT Park Alley of Kafe.
  • Fixed – Shaking animation of Hostage when being escorted.
  • Fixed – Shield shaking animation if the Operator moves while they are equipped on their back.
  • Fixed – Lighting issues on Theme Park which can cause disruptive contrasts when entering the building.

Both Kaid and Nomad are due to join Rainbow Six Siege with the release of the Operation Wind Bastion update, but an exact release date is yet to be confirmed.
