Rainbow Six Siege: Burnt Horizon Operators Gameplay and Gadget Starter Tips | Ubisoft [NA]


MAN: “Operation Burnt Horizon”
is taking “Rainbow Six Siege” to Australia, bringing two
new operators, one new map, and just really a lot
of nasty looking spikes. Now these may look
like something a defender would throw
down, but they’re actually deployed by an attacker. And this standard-issue drone
being used to scout enemy positions– it’s being controlled
by a defender. Seems like there’s
no better place to mix things up
than down under. An attacker named
Gridlock is who you have to thank for all
those pointy new obstacles in your way. She calls these mechanical
marvels tracks stingers. Throw one on the ground
and it immediately starts deploying clusters
of defender damaging spikes. It throws out a lot
of them, allowing you to really jam up a
staircase or a hallway or cover a large area of a room. Toss a track stinger
through a hatch or between floorboards to
exert some pressure from above or lob one into
an area where you know a defender is hiding to
put them in a prickly position. And don’t worry
about Jager’s ADS. It can’t affect
Gridlock’s gadget at all. Attackers can traverse
the spikes no problem, but defenders who
dare to tread on them will have three things
happen that you really don’t want to happen to you in siege. They will take damage. They will be slowed down,
and they will make noise. It’s enough to make
you think twice about that flanking route. And can you imagine trying
to retake a planted diffuser surrounded by these things? That’s a no from me. But hey, defenders,
you don’t have to let scary pieces of metal
tell you how to run your life– destroy them with bullets,
explosives, or melee attacks. Even better, destroy
the track stinger device during the deployment
process in order to stop some or all of the
clusters from spawning. Keep in mind, though, that
all of these actions are noisy and you risk alerting
the attacking team to your whereabouts. And since the attacking
team now includes Gridlock with her F-90 assault
rifle or her M249 LNG, you might want to think twice
about attracting attention. On the other side
of the siege is Mozzie, a defender
who figures why bring his own
drones to the fight when he can just steal yours. Shoot a drone head-on. It’s here. MAN: Armed with his
trusty pest launcher, Mozzie can hack the
attacking team’s drones and make them his own– yep, even twitch drones. He can capture them in two ways. number one, shooting a
pest directly onto a drone. This is kind of tricky unless
you catch an idle drone out in the open or have a
little help from Mute But if you miss your shot, you
can always pick up your pest and try again He shoots. He scores. That’s a drone for us. MAN: Number two, shooting
a pest onto a surface and creating an ambush– the Pest will pounce on
any drone that cruises into its sights and hack it. [INAUDIBLE] crashes
a drone direct. MAN: Each pest
can hack one drone and add it to Mozzie’s fleet. Once a drone is hacked,
Mozzie gains control of it– driving, jumping,
shocking, tagging, parking it in sneaky spots,
just livin’ the drone life. He can’t pick them up. And if he drives a drone outside
for more than a few seconds, he’ll lose the
hack, and the drone will be lost, even to
its original owner. But each drone
Mozzie keeps in play is a valuable new intel source
that joins the defender camera feed for all to see. Now defenders will see
a special outline that shows them which
drone not to shoot, but attackers will have to look
for the telltale blue light to recognize turncoat
drones or bring IQ along to sniff out any traitors. Attackers can regain
access to the camera feed of a hacked drone
with a Dokkaebi hack, but the drone will still
remain under defender control. From droning more carefully
to spot the flashing warning sign of a nearby pest
ambush to looking twice at every drone they
see, the attackers will have to burn more time
and attention on drones when Mozzie is in the match. And while their
attentions are elsewhere, Mozzie is more than happy to
take advantage with his P10 Roni automatic pistol
or his command 9 assault rifle with that reload
animation Ozzies would describe as ripper. The new map in play is
Outback, a roadhouse in the middle of
the sunburnt country where travelers rest and
refuel before venturing out into the bush. It’s comprised of three main
buildings joined together in an L shape. Each one has color-coded
accents to help you get oriented as you
navigate from the garage, blue, through the restaurant,
green, and into the motel, yellow. There’s a stuffed
shark, a rodeo bull, and a host of other landmarks
to help with call-outs, as well as plenty of breakable
walls and floors for our two new operators to destroy using
their super shorty shotgun sidearms. I’m reloading. MAN: Gridlock, the
queen of spikes, and Mozzie, Mr. Steal Yo
Drone, are hitting the road with Team Rainbow in
Operation Burnt Horizon, though they still
call Australia home. To stay up on the latest from
