Rainbow Six Siege’s latest season may have only just got underway, but information is already surfacing about the game’s next update and there’s a lot for fans to dig into. 

The newest season’s operation, Burnt Horizon, only kicked off on March 7 but fans are already clamouring for what will come later in this highly-anticipated year.

Now, a leak has surfaced that claims to reveal more about the two new operators, including what they’ll be able to do in-game, which are set to be added in less than three months’ time with next seasonal update.

Fans were given an in-depth look into the newest characters with Ubisoft’s Year 4 roadmap for Six Siege, which also showed a rework of a current map – Kafe Dostoyevsky – as well as a brand new map called Outback.

The leak, which came from ResetEra, firstly claims that the newest attacker will be a Danish operator. However, the name of which is not yet known. The leak also suggests that the Dane will be invisible to cameras and have an ability that operates similarly to Caveira’s Silent Step ability – which, as it sounds, allows her to move without making noise.

The other details in the leak relates to an American secret service operator, who would be the newest defender added to the game.

It suggests that the character will have a ‘special eyesight’ that allows them to bypass flash and smoke grenades. However, details beyond that are slim.

This leak is currently unconfirmed but the details do match with what has already been teased by Ubisoft in their Year 4 roadmap and recent cinematic trailer for the popular title.

The cult hero’s overhaul was first revealed at the Six Invitational, to rapturous applause from the crowd. The turret wielding Russian might retain his legendary status, but picking him will no longer be a meme.

Ubisoft are set to drop more details about Tachanka’s rework very soon. In fact, it could be coming in just a matter of weeks, or even days, on Operation Shadow Legacy. Here’s what we know about the full reveal coming soon.

Tachanka’s kit is heavily outdated in Rainbow Six. His static playstyle doesn’t fit with the dynamic of Siege. However, that’s all going to change when the Russian defender gets his rework.

We’ve already seen the major changes. Tachanka will now wield an incendiary grenade launcher instead of his turret. It’ll work similarly to Capitao’s bolts, helping lock down certain areas.

“The incendiary grenade launcher not only fits his theme of like World War II, old weapons, but also adds a real interest into his gameplay that’ll move him from being a meme character to a meta pick,” game director Leroy Athanassoff told Dexerto.

He will instead get his LMG as his primary weapon. It comes with supreme destructibility, with the ability to open up soft walls and hatches with ease. It also packs a decent punch, although the fire rate isn’t anything to write home about.

The Lord himself is set to get an Elite skin too. He’s ripped off his top ⁠— but kept the helmet on ⁠— as he marks a new era with a new look.

The Tachanka rework will likely arrive in Operation Shadow Legacy. However, a firm release date hasn’t been locked. We will keep you posted as new info arises.
