Rainbow Six Siege introduces the first season of Year 7, Demon Veil! Azami, our newest Operator, joins Rainbow with an extensive background ranging from motorized Tokyo police officer to being a bodyguard in the private sector. Focused and determined beyond all doubt, she will bring her skills forward in the defense of her teammates. Her Kiba Barrier will bring a unique twist to the battlefield. Read the Patch Notes below for full details.
It’s incredible to witness the singular focus in which Kana “Azami” Fujiwara has continued her training. Her determination to bring Yahata’s killers to justice is understandable, and we’ll use every resource we have to help her in her investigation. I can only hope she’ll find new purpose along the way.
“Azami transformed a protective barrier into a weapon… though the Kiba casing’s balance is improved compared to the previous canister.”
The Kiba Barrier is a modified kunai that sticks to a surface after it's thrown and releases a material that first expands then solidifies, creating a bulletproof barrier to patch up those holes in your defenses.
The arrival of Demon Veil brings a new playlist featuring the classic game mode, Team Deathmatch. The Deathmatch playlist was created to provide the perfect environment for players to warm up and practice their aim before competitive matches, as well as offer a more casual gameplay experience within Siege.
Attackers now have the ability to change their Operator and loadout during the Preparation Phase. The change aims to bring more impact to droning during the Preparation Phase by allowing Attackers to use the intel gathered and adjust their strategy. In addition, the match header has been updated to show more information about your teammates in order to help make informed decisions when changing your Operator or loadout.
Attacker repick is available for all game modes in the Quick Match, Unranked, Ranked, and Pro League playlists.
Primary weapons and select secondary weapons have been given access to all non-magnifying sights, with the exception of the DP27 custom Reflex. Weapons with access to the 2.5x scope now have access to both variants.
The Sights section of the Loadout menu has been updated with new categories:
Goyo is now equipped with the Volcán Canister, a slightly modified version of the incendiary bomb that no longer attaches to a Deployable Shield.
Volcán Canisters are partially shielded and can be deployed on surfaces such as walls and floors. Their explosive damage has been reduced but the flames burn for longer than they did before.
Beginning this season, all players will be required to link their phone number to their Ubisoft account in order to join Ranked matches. This security measure is intended to help slow cheater re-entry after being banned, as well as curb smurfing.
You can link your phone number via:
Ubisoft Connect > Account Information (https://account.ubisoft.com/)
Match Replay is now available on consoles and will save 2 hours of latest gameplay or up to 12 matches. In addition, Replay controls have been added as a controller layout for easier
navigation within Match Replay.
As previously announced, the team has been working on a program to reward players for reporting bugs on R6Fix, and the first iteration of this program will be available starting with the Y7S1 Test Server.
To qualify for a reward, report an issue during the season (on either the Test Server or Live) and have its status reach "Under Investigation". You will receive one reward per season, determined by the highest severity issue out of all your reports. Each season's reward will be granted to your account on the Live game during the following season's Test Server.
As with every season, Demon Veil brings a price decrease for specific Operators. Mozzie and Gridlock are dropping to 10,000 Renown or 240 R6 Credits, Oryx and Iana are changing to 15,000 Renown or 360 R6 Credits, and Flores will now cost 20,000 Renown or 480 R6 Credits. Take this opportunity to add them to your roster and maybe you’ll find your new main!
Demon Veil brings with it a stealthy new addition to your seasonal weapon skin selection. Obtain the Covert Ending Bundle to unlock the Sleek Lethality weapon skin and attachment skin, as well as the Yakuyoke charm. The seasonal weapon skin will be released at season launch and is available for purchase throughout the season. Once unlocked, it remains in your inventory indefinitely and can be applied to all available weapons.
