Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is one of those shooters that are absolutely adored by their players, and the game does have Very Positive reviews on its Steam page, so it can be said that it is a very solid shooter. Today we will be talking about the Mid Season Reinforcements, or to be more precise, the upgrade to the Entry Denial Device that Kapkan can use, a buff to Blitz, a nerf to Ela, a brand new Elite set for Jäger, and more.
Let’s get started with one of the best defenders in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Kapkan. He can now carry 5 Entry Denial Devices, they will be hard to see but they won’t be insta-kills. The trip laser of these traps will now disappear after being deployed, but they won’t kill you immediately, instead, they will deal 60 HP damage. Kapkan also got his speed upgraded, and he is going to be a 2-speed Operator (he was a 1-speed Operator before), which increases Kapkan’s mobility by a great amount.
Let’s talk about Blitz next. He is quite a tough nut to crack, but only while he has his shield up. This means that when he’s sprinting he becomes an easy target, so you can’t exactly “blitz” around as you can get shot down pretty easily. Thankfully, this update made it so that he can now both sprint and have his shield protect him at the same time.
The last operator that got changed is Ela, that had a rather high win and pick rate, a bit too high it seems. Her power lies in her Grzmot Mines and her Scorpio EVO 3 A1 SMG. To tone down her power, she will now only have 3 Grzmot Mines instead of 4, and her Scorpio EVO 3 A1 SMG will be harder to control as the speed at which the weapon reaches maximum recoil and the impact of the maximum recoil got increased.
We also get to take a look at the newest Elite Set for Jäger called The Flying Ace Elite set which includes a matching Uniform and Headgear, an awesome Signature Victory Animation, an alluring Charm, an Operator Card, and of course, an Operator Title.
