Ubisoft has outlined a few changes that it will be making to Rainbow Six Siege in the upcoming Y4S2 update.
The first is a change to Glaz’s OTS-03 scope to make it less efficient when pushing players through smoke. Following the update, Glaz players will have to stand still to fully see players through smoke, as moving in any direction will cause the yellow glow on enemies to fade out.
“In the original Operator design, Glaz was supposed to be a long-range operator, but his ability turned out to be underwhelming and rarely used,” Ubisoft explains. “Therefore, the OTS-03 scope received the ability to see through smokes, while operators were highlighted in bright yellow. These additions made Glaz frustrating to play against and became a very strong close-range operator. He excels as at pushing towards the objective while being visually hidden. It is often difficult to counter him effectively when he uses smokes at his advantage. The current Glaz playstyle does not exactly reflect our initial intentions.”
The update will also make it so the Desert Eagle can be equipped with a muzzle break or suppressor, Smoke’s FMG-9 can be equipped with a Vortex scope, and Finka’s ability will cleanse tinnitus.
Ubisoft also outlined a few other things that it is looking into for future updates, including audio tweaks for Maverick, a new system for Smoke’s gas clouds, reworked deployable shields, and Ballistic Shields. Read more about the planned changes here.
