The latest expansion pack for Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Skull Rain, and an accompanying update are now live on all platforms.

As revealed recently, the stars of the show of Skull Rain are the two new Operators, Caviar and Capitão, and a new map set in Brazil. The Operators come from Brazil’s BOPE unit;  Capitão has a special crossbow that comes with fire-asphyxiation and smoke grenade bolts, while the other, Caviar, can sneak up on enemies and interrogate them. The map is the game’s “most destructible” one yet, according to Ubisoft. It’s free to everyone, however, the Operators are only available to season pass holders for the next week. After that, anyone can purchase them with in-game currency. You can check out both operators in action in the trailer below.

As far as some of the improvement side goes, this update makes it so that your operator’s limbs will no longer clip through walls, inadvertently giving away their position. Also, the kill cam has been updated to show what occurred a little more accurately. The pre-round tactical map now offers additional detail. Other quality-of-life changes include the ability to pick who spawns with the bomb defuser, a better compass, and a streamlined HUD.

Also new in this update are a way to surrender Ranked matches, weapon skins, a weapon attachment, and a Tactical Realism custom game mode. In an effort to make the season pass more valuable to those who have purchased it, you will now receive a 10 percent discount on all in-game-shop content. This applies toward purchases with both Renown and R6 Credits.

A complete list of the update’s changes, along with all of the additions and tweaks can be seen on the official Rainbow Six website. Are you excited for the new operators and the Skull Rain DLC? Tell us in the comments below. Stay tuned to Gamer Assault weekly for all your gaming needs.
