Right, pay attention because this is needlessly complicated: Operation Para Bellum is the first big update to season two of year three of Rainbow Six Siege. What a ridiculous system. Anyway, it is what it is, and it’s all going to be revealed on May 19th.
Ahead of the full reveal it has been announced that Operation Para Bellend will include two new Italian operators who specialise in defence, and a new map which is also Italian. There will also be a new Pick & Ban system “that provides an extra layer of strategy between teams, as each side tries to counter their opponents’ picks during the banning phase.
