Both classic and more recent Operators have been tweaked in the latest Siege update.

For the most part, Operators have been changed for the better in the latest update. While some tweaks are fairly minor, others could help see a surge in playtime over the coming weeks.

Castle, Clash, Kapkan, Melusi, Oryx, and Wamai were the six Operators in focus this time around. Among the noteworthy adjustments, Clash-mains will now load into each map with a new piece of equipment at the ready. Gone is the P-10C as the Super Shotty is now available in its place.

In another considerable change, Kapkan can now have a little more fun with his Entry Denial Devices. Up until this patch, the Operator could only place one at each door or window. Now, he can go wild and place as many as he likes.

Weapon and gadgets tuned in Y6S3.3 update

Next are the weapon and gadget changes in the Y6S3.3 patch. Both the MX4 Storm and the P10 Roni have been nerfed while the Hard Breach Charge has finally been buffed.

Regarding the guns, both will now be more difficult to control as vertical recoil has been increased across the board. Moreover, the P10 Roni now has a harshe kick when firing initial rounds, and its total ammo count has been dropped down as well.

On the positive end, fans of the Hard Breach Charge are in luck. After a year of having just one in each round, players can now use two Hard Breach Charges as they please.
