After 3 Months since Flores joined the Rainbow Six with his RCE Drone, it is time to welcome our Pilot to the team. This update will feature the new Attacking Operator, Thunderbird, coming from the Nakoda. As well as a completely reworked Favela map and other changes to the game. She can deploy a Kóna Healing Station, which heals any player – ally or enemy – close to this device, even if they are downed. The Kóna Station has a cooldown between each charge. Thunderbird is a low armor, high-speed operator, equipped with a SPEAR .308 or SPAS-15 as primary weapon, and BEARING 9 or Q-929 as a secondary weapon. You can get to know more about Thunder Bird here.
Along with Thunderbird, this patch will feature several exciting changes too. Starting with the corpses being replaced with icons. This particular feature seems to be of the prime importance since, on many instances the corpses worked as body bags – blocking certain angles and peeks. Additionally – Scoreboard 2.0, Bullet holes improvement, Operator Balancing will also be coming along the patch.
The update size is estimated around ~4GB on all platforms. However the update via Ubisoft Connect will have a 6GB Patch.
