Rainbow Six Siege update fixes new Operator gadget

Operation Vector Glare

Ubisoft is rolling out a new Rainbow Six Siege update with a long list of changes, including fixes to its latest Operator.

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

Since the launch of Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Season 2 players have reported issues with Sens, the latest character to join the Tom Clancy shooter. The Belgian attacker wields a dynamic new gadget dubbed the R.O.U Projector Systems. This allows them to create hologram screens – although these can be shot through, they can effectively block a player’s line of sight. The developers have improved the R.O.U with this new patch.

Y7S2 also introduced a new map for the game’s Team Deathmatch mode as well as a shooting range and a fresh battle pass. You can read more on the latest Rainbow Six Siege update below.
