Operation Red Crow

In Operation Red Crow, two S.A.T. Operators join Team Rainbow to neutralize the threat residing in our new free map, "Skyscraper". This fourth major content update aims to improve game experience, offers new customization opportunities and lots more. The new map Skyscraper also offers fresh tactical opportunities for group-based assaults.

 

2 New Operators

  • Hibana is an expert at gaining entry in high risk areas thanks to her explosive leadership on the field. She is equipped with the SuperNova and Type-89 as primary weapons, allowing for rapid motions and providing precise room-to-room clearings.
  • Echo, a tactical and technology-driven Operator, is also equipped with the SuperNova, along with the MP5SD4 as primary weapons, allowing him to proceed rapidly and precisely in Close Quarter Battle contexts.

THE SKYSCRAPER

Team Rainbow has been called to neutralize a Yakuza war brewing high above the streets of Nagoya, Japan. Two of the S.A.T.'s brightest Operators have been mobilized to provide their unique insight and tactical expertise. Perched on top of Skyscraper, you will explore refined works of Japanese architecture inside a dangerous mansion. Be prepared for vertiginous rappels in the haze of the morning sun, where modernity and tradition meet. 

RED CROW WEAPON SKINS

There are five Red Crow Signature skins available in the shop for Operation Red Crow. Make sure you do not miss out on the opportunity to flash these new designs while rappelling in Skyscraper.

THE ELITE

We are happy to announce a new customization series for this season with the Elite sets. Each set includes a matching Uniform and Headgear, an Operator Card, a Charm, an Operator Name, and a Signature Victory Animation.

The first Operators to receive the honors are Kapkan, Sledge and Thermite. Join the Elite with the Vympel, L Detachment and Vintage Bureau sets. Make sure to leave your mark on history with these polished Operator-tailored packages.

CALIBER-BASED DESTRUCTION

We are glad to announce a polishing of the destruction tool that will improve the physics quality and provide realistic impulses with minimal performance impact. Using our improved tool, our team was able to reconfigure the destruction parameters seen in-game.

The impact zone and fragility sphere are now weapon-specific: stronger calibers will create bigger bullet holes and generate larger impulses.

NEW FEATURES

DESTRUCTION: As you can see in the asset above, there is a fairly significant change in the way bullets interact with the destructible environment based on their caliber.

BATTLE DRESS UNIFORMS: Battle Dress Uniforms are new ways to customize the way your Operators look. We are kicking things off with two Season Pass Year 1 exclusive uniforms for the new SAT Operators, Hibana and Echo. Be sure to pick up the Year 1 Season Pass before these outfits are gone!

We will also be introducing Battle Dress Uniforms for Capitao, Caveira, Ash, Sledge, Thatcher, Mute, and Smoke that will be available through the in-game shop for all.

Border

Team Rainbow has been called in to assist local law enforcement in regaining control of the border. Two Navy SEALs stationed in the area have been enlisted to provide their expertise on the region to Team Rainbow. A mix of old and new construction and open air pathways, this is the most destructible and open map to date.

Operation Skull Rain

In Operation Skull Rain, two BOPE Operators join Team Rainbow to pacify the Favela, our new free map. This third major content update aims to improve the game experience by adding countermeasures for toxic behavior, a new weapon attachment, several game enhancements, customization content and lots more.

2 New Operators

Operators are immediately unlocked and have exclusive access granted to Season Pass holders for seven days. All players can unlock the operators with Renown or R6 Credits after the Season Pass exclusive period ends.

The Favela

Team Rainbow has been called to pacify and regain control of the Favela. Two BOPEs stationed in the area have been enlisted to provide their tactical expertise of the terrain to Team Rainbow. Mixing colorful and narrow streets with high vantage points, this map supports exterior shell destruction which renders it as the most destructible to date. The new Favela map is available for free for all players.

Skull Rain Weapon Skins

Kick off the new Season with the four Skull Rain signature skins: Amazônia, Ceifador, Azulejos, the Piranha, and Skull Rain. These weapon skins are available in the shop exclusively for Operation Skull Rain. Visit the Shop section for more details.

Health Program

To make sure the new content in upcoming seasons would be built on solid foundations, we decided to dedicate Season Three to improving the health of the game. As you know, we supplemented the server-side FairFight anti-cheating engine with BattlEye, an active client-side system.

To improve overall gameplay experience, we also enhanced an array of features. We created a dynamic body part clipping solution, which serves to prevent revealing the limbs of your Operators through walls. For more enhancements, please refer to the General Tweaks & Improvements section below.

Surrender System

If the field becomes too rough for your team, you can now cut it short and move on to another match. The objective was to accelerate the process by allowing a team to forfeit if they do not wish to be forced to play the match through the end.  You can now cast a vote to surrender during a Ranked match. You will need the majority on your side for your team to forfeit. Please note that this new feature is only available prior to the 3rd round.

New Custom Game Mode (BETA)

We’re glad to finally introduce the Tactical Realism, which will introduce a new gameplay available in Custom Games. Inspired by your enthusiasm towards getting a ‘Hardcore’ mode, we created the Tactical Realism mode to foster a better immersion by relying less on the in-game feedback. We endeavored to offer a realistic experience via several modifications, namely, limiting the HUD to only display the Round Timer, Compass, Gadget & Weapon Panels; preventing you from marking your enemy; removing the kill confirmations; providing a realistic Magazine Management for ammo; and much more. This is a first step toward immersion, and we wish to gather your feedback in order to improve this iteration.

By implementing this mode we tried to simulate a real tactical experience. Its most unique aspect is the ironclad team spirit it fosters. You must now entirely rely on your teammates and their skills to figure out who and what is around that corner. For instance, communication is your only tool to keep track of both your teammates (avoiding team killing) and the enemies eliminated, which is tricky without the help of the kill confirmation. With Tactical Realism the tension runs high as you must carefully assess, coordinate, and communicate your movements to your teammates—and so at all time.

New Attachment

To carter to a variety of playstyles, we created a new attachment: the angled grip. We had the opportunity to have Serenity 17, a R6 top level player testing it at our Montreal studio. Here are the observations and tips he had to share with us.

The angled grip accelerates the transition between hip fire and ADS, which allows for an aggressive and fast-paced playstyle. However, make sure to take into account that the angled grip is less stable in terms of recoil than the standard grip, so holding your angles might be tricky with this one.
