Ubisoft revealed Crystal Guard, the third season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, and its new Operator, Osa, a military engineer coming from Croatia, in addition to light reworks of the maps Coastline, Bank and Clubhouse and many other updates.

In Crystal Guard, players will discover a brand-new attacker, Osa, equipped with Talon-8 Clear Shield: a transparent bulletproof shield that she can deploy on the ground, in doorframes, or in window frames. She can navigate with the shield in her hands if needed, albeit with certain restrictions (weapon stored, no sprint, no prone). Osa is a medium speed, medium armor Operator, equipped with 556 Xl or PDW9 as primary weapon and the PMM as a secondary weapon.

In addition, the Bank, Coastline, and Clubhouse maps have been rebuilt from the ground up to enhance balancing, environmental destruction, sound propagation, and lighting. Crystal Guard introduces numerous balancing adjustments to these maps including a 1F Reception bomb site replacing the 1F Service Entrance site on Coastline, new locations, and more entryways – for example, a new alleyway in Bank and a new path in Clubhouse have been edited. In terms of environmental destruction, the Bank and Coastline maps feature new destroyable walls: on Bank, the Railing on 2F Skyline and on Coastline, the exterior wall in 2F VIP lounge.

Additional updates coming with Crystal Guard include:

  • Elite customization: players are now able to equip any headgear with an Elite Uniform if they own both and belong to the same Operator
  • Operator balancing (Twitch, IQ, Fuze, Mute)
  • Flash Detection System
  • Gadget damage adjustments
  • Armor rework
  • RIM lighting that highlights opponents to avoid unfair camouflage

Finally, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is welcoming its second Elite skin from Capcom’s survival horror franchise Resident Evil: Lion “Leon S. Kennedy” Elite. This Elite skin will be available on August 17.

Rainbow Six Siege will release a new Collector case in Fall 2021. Exclusive to the Ubisoft Official Shops, this case includes exclusive goodies such as a replica of Sledge’s hammer, the Sparkle Tachanka chibi, and digital content for Rainbow Six Siege.
