Ubisoft has released a new trailer today showcasing the two new Australian Rainbow Six Siege Operators and their gadgets joining the Operation Burnt Horizon in the form of Gridlock and Mozzie as well as a new map named Outback. Rainbow Six Siege Burnt Horizon expansion will be officially launching very soon.
When the Season launches, Season Pass owners can unlock these new Operators immediately and gain exclusive access for seven days. All players can unlock these Operators with Renown or R6 Credits once those seven days have passed.
“Gridlock bolsters the attacking team’s area denial capabilities with her Trax Stingers. Throw one on the ground, and it immediately starts deploying clusters of Defender-damaging spikes in a radial pattern. Each Stinger produces quite a lot of spike clusters, allowing you to really jam up a staircase or a hallway, or cover a large area of a room. Attackers can traverse the spikes without hindrance, but Defenders who dare to tread on them will take damage, be slowed down, and make noise. Trax Stingers allow Gridlock to obstruct flanking routes, or surround a planted defuser with a defensive perimeter. Toss a Trax 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..”
“Mozzie’s trusty Pest Launcher can hack the Attacking team’s drones and make them his own. Yes, this includes Twitch drones. He can capture them in two ways – 1) Shooting a Pest directly on to a drone. 2) Shooting a Pest onto a surface and creating an ambush. Each Pest can hack one drone and add it to Mozzie’s fleet. Once a drone is hacked, Mozzie is free to do drone things, like drive, jump, use shock charges, tag enemies, and park it in sneaky spots. He can’t pick drones up, and if he drives one outside for more than a few seconds, he’ll lose the hack and the drone will be lost. Each drone Mozzie keeps in play is a valuable new intel source that joins the Defender camera feed for all to see.”
