Ubisoft reveals all the surprises for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege Year 7 Season 2

In great news for the entire Rainbow Six gaming community, Ubisoft reveals that Operation Vector Glare, the second season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege Year 7, will arrive on June 7. This season introduces Sens, a new Belgian operator, a new Team Deathmatch map, Phase 1 of the new Reputation System bringing Privacy Mode and other updates, a narrative change, and more improvements to the game.

One thing we find quite remarkable is that Operation Vector Glare puts strategy at the forefront with the new Attacker Sens, a brilliant tactician from Belgium with military experience and a background in psychology. His ROU Projector System device deploys a wheel that travels in a straight line to outrun small projectors and self-destructs after a set amount of time.

Projectors build a wall of light that blocks players’ line of sight, so making a versatile approach fits perfectly on Sens’ helm. They’re a low-speed, high-health Operator, who carries a new weapon, the POF -9 or a 417 as a primary weapon and an SDP 9MM or a GONNE-6 as a secondary weapon.

Along with Sens, a new exclusive map for the Team Deathmatch mode arrives at the launch of the season. Set in Greece, Close Quarter is the first dedicated Team Deathmatch map to focus on movement rather than defense setups.

With a circular flow and a good mix of different lines of sight, this facility will be a unique experience for players to try. As part of the Year 7 roadmap, Phase 1 of the Reputation System arrives this season to continue addressing player behavior improvements.

In this update, reverse friendly fire will be enabled by default for those who injure too many teammates. Players will receive two warnings before the penalty kicks in, and the penalties expire after playing multiple matches without injuring teammates.

Other updates address those who misuse the match cancellation system by giving players more control throughout the entire process, from the initial request to the actual match cancellation. Additionally, privacy options are now available to all players in the Options menu.

Two onboarding tools will be added this season: Shooting Range, a playable space to practice, train, and experiment with weapon damage, attachments, and recoil without the pressure of a match to find the best loadout; and the Operator Guide, which tells players about each Operator, their unique abilities, gadgets, and any tips for Attacker or Defender strategies.

Other updates include a third slot for secondary weapons for certain operators; and an option to adjust the intensity of the screen shake. As announced at Six Invitational 2022, a narrative change is coming to the Siege universe: Rainbow Six Siege Operators will be divided into specialized units.

These squads will work together to fulfill Rainbow’s global protection mandate. Operation Vector Glare introduces the Wolfguard Squad, the world’s foremost humanitarian military unit known for its compassionate and caring approach.

Most Wolfguard members are trained in field medicine and specialize in protection of some kind: Lion, Montagne, Nomad, Twitch, Ying, Sens, Clash, Melusi, Bandit, Frost, Thunderbird, Castle and their team leader , Doc.

Ubisoft is partnering with SEGA and its Yakuza franchise to create two exclusive skin packs for Rainbow Six Siege. A Kaoru Sayama-inspired pack will be available for Hibana, and a Kiryu Kazuma-inspired pack will be available for Echo. Additionally, a new elite skin for Echo inspired by another iconic character from the Yakuza games is coming soon.

Also coming with Operation Vector Glare is the Squad Up Revival Program – players will be able to invite up to four former teammates who haven’t played during Year 7. After playing five matches together, in any PVP game mode, both players will earn big rewards.

Players who invite their old teammates will earn rewards for each of their four friends who complete the program: from new Year 6 Operators, a new exotic weapon skin, or other pre-order rewards, including Battle Pass points if they already own those Operators.
