Info has recently surfaced that the new gadgets for Year 4 Season 3 operators may have leaked. This has been an ongoing occurrence for Rainbow Six Siege so many believe these leaks will become factual as they have in the past. There is still no word on the operator’s names or if they will be using unique guns unlike the last pair of operators. Nevertheless, if these leaks are true, players can start anticipating how the new pair will change the playing field.
The leaks were reportedly leaked from an individual who goes by the name of Kormora. Kormora has released accurate information in the past and is quite active on ResetEra, a gaming forum used to discuss the latest news or trends in games. One user requested if any news had leaked about the new operators in the coming season, in which Kormora replied they had initially been told there would be an operator who could go up hatches, but they now had a list of updated details. This is what was shown.
Year 4 Season 3 Gadgets
- Attacker can use a grappling hook to go up hatches. Everyone pretty much knows this one at this point. And its usable on windows too obviously.
- Defender has a special deployable shield that has a canister on it that drops fire around it when it gets broken.
Both of these gadgets look very similar to the devices seen in the top right corner of the art that Ubisoft teased not too long ago featuring Mira and Nokk. Sketches of gadgets on a chalkboard can be clearly seen. The image is shown below.
Both of these possible gadgets are interesting indeed because they will cause a more thoughtful approach on both the defending and attacking sides. These gadgets seem to change things up a bit more than the last pair of operators whose abilities did not change the current gameplay much. With the attacker, you will be able to enter a lot of objectives in a whole different manner. Reinforcing hatches underneath you in an objective will be another reason your defenses are going to be spread even more thin now. For the Defender, a deployable shield that can be ignited set in a door way sounds like a great way to crowd control enemies on those frantic 15 second pushes into the objective.
Of course, we have to be prepared that these leaks may not be true. Given the accuracy of the leaks in the past, thinking of new strategies now would not be the worst idea. We will find out the truth of Rainbow Six Sieges new operators soon enough.
