Ubisoft has recently been preparing "Operation Grim Sky," the next major expansion headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Two new Operators, a rework of Hereford base, and other changes are headed to the shooter, with a full reveal slated for August 19 during the Six Major Paris. Taking to the Rainbow Six Siege blog, we've now learned of two further Operator changes arriving with the patch.
Firstly, Thatcher is seeing his gadget nerfed in an effort to limit his currently "binary playstyle." Following the arrival of Operation Grim Sky, the Operator's EMP grenades will only temporarily disable cameras, instead of destroying them completely. Ubisoft hopes this move will force players to be more creative and work closer as a team. This is reportedly a "small part of a larger project" in the works for Thatcher, set to make him stronger in the future.
Twitch is also seeing a minor nerf, increasing the sound created by her Shock Drone. Unlike traditional drones, the Shock Drone creates little noise in its current state, allowing players to move past unnoticed. This change will keep the drone "very discreet," while making it more noticeable in quiet environments.
For a full breakdown of Operation Grim Sky, including details on two upcoming Operators, a rework of Hereford Base, and fixes to weapon misalignment, be sure to check our complete roundup so far.
