High Caliber, the fourth and final season of the sixth year of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, is now playable. This new season adds the Irish Operator Thorn, a rework of the Outback map, new default team colors, a new Battle Pass with exotic weapon skins and several other updates.
In High Caliber, players will discover a brand new Operator. The defender Thorn is equipped with Razorbloom Shells: throwable proximity devices that, when triggered, initiate a timed detonation. Players who fail to clear the area of the Razorbloom Shells in time will take significant damage from the blast. Thorn is a medium armor level, medium speed Operator equipped with the new UZK50Gi or the M870 as the primary weapon and with the 1911 TACOPS or the C75-AUTO as the secondary weapon.
With the new Operator, players will get to work on the newly designed Outback map. This map has undergone some changes to make it more balanced. Some of these changes are:
Changes to the main building and the environment to give attackers more strategic optionsNew soft walls on the outside of the buildingChanges to certain areas to create better visibility and balance
Further updates that come with High Caliber are:
