Video transcription:

Operation Shifting Tidesis rolling into Rainbow
Six Siege with a bang.[GUN FIRES]KALI: Drop it for me!CHRIS WATTERS: The
bang in questionis the sound of the first
bolt-action sniper rifleto be deployed by Team Rainbow.It belongs to an
attacker named Kali,and it comes with an explosive
under-barrel gadget thatlets her use it for
more than just punchingholes in walls and operators.On the other side
of the action, youmight notice strange things
happening to your grenadesas a defender named Wamai
deploys a new gadgetwith magnetic appeal.Let's show you how these
things work and takea look at the
updated attractionson the newly reworked
theme park map comingwith Operation Shifting Tides.[GUN CLICKING][GUN FIRES][GUN CLICKING]There's no escaping that sound
when Kali is in the round.As the head of an Indian
private military company,this medium-speed, medium-armor
attacker ordered herselfup a custom CSR
X300 rifle, and ithas a bite to match its bark.[GUN FIRES]KALI: Learn your angles.CHRIS WATTERS: A headshot is
an instant kill naturally,but a hit to the torso
is an instant down.[GUN FIRES]One shot can penetrate through
multiple breakable walls–[GUN FIRES]–or through
multiple defenders–[GUN FIRES]–or a combination of both.It can obliterate
wooden barricadesand unreinforced hatches, and
it has a variable 5x and 12xscope.This gun is powerful, but
it isn't exactly subtle.In addition to the
unmistakable sound,it creates a clear visual trail
that shows the defenders wherethe shot came from.And any defender unlucky
enough to be downed by itwill automatically spin to
face the direction of the shot,giving them a bit more
intel on Kali's position.SOLDIER: One friendly operator–CHRIS WATTERS: But
as they say, knowingis only half the battle.The other half is not
getting shot by Kali.[GUN FIRES][GUN CLICKING]Strong as it is, the
CSR X300 can't penetratereinforced walls or
hatches, but this iswhere Kali's gadget comes in.[GUN FIRES]From her under-barrel launcher,
she fires LV explosive lances.These projectiles burrow
into breakable and reinforcedsurfaces.Then they explode on both sides.That line of Bandit
batteries protectingyour reinforced walls?Gone.Helpful Mute jammers?Gone.If a lance hits a surface
it can't burrow through,it'll still dig in
and explode, so saygoodbye to your Maestro
evil eyes, your barbed wire,and your deployable shields.[GUN FIRES]Kali's gadget lets her
do strategic damageto defender gadgets
that is normallyhandled by frag grenades
or Thatcher's EMP grenades,making her a powerful force
for destroying enemy defensesand advancing her team's
push to the objective.While the lance explosions
will create holesin breakable
surfaces, they won'tcreate openings in reinforced
ones for you to peek through,and they don't pop open
Mira's black mirrors,so Kali's no substitute
for a hard breacher.Her lances are vulnerable to
being destroyed by Jaeger's ADSor grabbed by
Wamai's gadget, whichwe'll tell you about next.If you're quick, you
can also destroy a lancebefore it explodes by damaging
the tail end, not the tip thatappears on the other
side of the wall.[TICKING][GUN FIRES]Rest assured that the lance
only does minimal damageto operators,
because when it comesto taking damage from Kali,
you've got bigger concerns–that beefy bolt-action CSR X300
and her two sidearm options,the P226 MK-25 or the C75 Auto.VOICE: Sorry.[GUN FIRES, PERON GRUNTS]Now let's talk about
Wamai and explainwhy your grenades
and flash bangsare suddenly behaving oddly.This medium-armor,
medium-speed Kenyan defenderis employed by Kali's
PMC, and she brought himalong when she
joined Team Rainbow.Wamai has a gadget called
the magnetic neutralizingelectronic targeting
system, aka the magnet.Magnet devices will stick
to surfaces when thrownand act on any attacker
projectile thatpasses within their active
radius and line of sight.It goes like this.First, the magnet
stops the projectile,resets its detonation
timer, and pulls it in.[GUN FIRES]The projectile then detonates
at the magnet's location,and the magnet itself explodes.One magnet can grab
one projectile.Flashes will still flash,
frags will still frag,but they'll do so at a
time and place dictatedby Wamai's gadget.[GUN FIRES]KALI: Stay clear of the blast!CHRIS WATTERS: And
here's the thing.It's not just flashes,
frags, and smokes.It's Ash's breaching rounds.[GUN FIRES]It's Capitao's bolts, Ying's
candelas, Nomad's air jabs,and a whole cluster
of Fuze's charges,if you're really dedicated.[EXPLOSIONS]It's Thatcher's EMPs, Zofia's
concussions and impacts,and Gridlock's track stingers,
which will still spike thingsup, so use the extra time
from the detonation timerreset to shoot them first.[GUN FIRES]The magnet can meddle
with a lot of gadgets,but it won't mess with Hibana's
X-Kairos pellets or Twitch'sshock drone charges.Neutralizing gadgets
is good, but Wamaican go one step further.With some creative
placement, he'snot just relocating projectiles
to a safe detonation spot.He's putting them
in places to causeproblems for the attackers.Capitao could end up roasting
his teammates if he's notcareful with his bolts.[EXPLOSION]SOLDIER: Friendly!Cease fire!CHRIS WATTERS: Sledge
might want to think twiceabout dropping grenades down
through a hole he smashedin the floor.And Goyo's Volcan Shield
becomes a little more dangerouswith a magnet device
stuck to the back.[EXPLOSION]The devices
themselves are easilydestroyed if
attackers spot them,and Wamai gains them gradually
throughout the round,similar to Lesion
and his Gu mines.[EXPLOSION]While Jaeger's ADS simply
neutralizes incoming objects,Wamai takes a more
creative approachby moving those objects
around and sowing uncertaintyamong the attacking
team, uncertaintythat he can capitalize on with
his MP5K or AUG A2 and Keratos.357 or P12 sidearms.[GUN FIRING]You've been watching these
new operators do their thingon Theme Park, the latest
map in the Siege lineupto get thoroughly reworked for
balance and better competition.First thing you'll notice
is that the large train thatused to bisect the
second floor is gone,making for quicker navigation
and more close quartersskirmishes.[GUN FIRING]SOLDIER: Reload.CHRIS WATTERS: The haunted
first floor sectionhas been transformed into
a throne room and armory,complete with a
dragon-guarded stairway.Elsewhere, a cheeky new
walkway above another staircasecreates interesting
opportunitiesfor defenders and
attackers alike,while some new arcade
cabinets provide extra coverat a crucial second
floor window.And the first floor arcade
entrance is completely blocked.The new Theme Park map will
be free for all playerswhen Operation Shifting
Tides launches.The new operators,
Kali and Wamai,will be available at launch for
Year 4 Pass holders and Uplay+subscribers, and a week later,
all players will be ableto unlock them with
Renown or R6 credits.[GUN FIRES]For more on Rainbows
