Rainbow Six Siege’s Y4S2, Operation Phantom Sight, only just launched, but fans are already looking ahead to the next one.
Year four Season three of Rainbow Six Siege does not yet have an official name, and Ubisoft typically waits a few months before hinting at what’s to come in the next season.
However, thanks to ResetEra forum member – and generally reliable leaker – Kormora, we now have an idea about the types of gadgets that will be introduced to the game in Season three.
The attacker, as earlier leaks suggested, will indeed have a grappling hook. This will allow them to grapple up to top hatches, which at this point are unusable by attackers – save for taking a shot an enemy above. The grappling hook can also be used to go through windows and such.
As for the defender, their so called “special deployable shield” has a special canister that spreads fire around when destroyed. It’s not exactly clear how this will play into the meta; the leaker’s description certainly leaves room for interpretation.
We’ll have to wait for the Season three official reveal to find out more, but you can count on brief teasers showing up a few weeks prior.
