Rainbow Six Siege Operation Steel Wave Available Now
Operation Steel Wave is now available for Rainbow Six Siege, and it brings new Operators, gadgets, and more. Norwegian Attacker Ace packs a new throwable hard-breaching gadget, while the South African Defender Melusi deploys a device that slow Attackers and alerts her allies to their presence. These Operators are unlocked immediately for Year 5 Pass owners, and all other players can unlock them starting June 23 using Renown or R6 credits. Operation Steel Wave also delivers a rework of the House map, a new secondary gadget for Defenders, and a number of other updates that are free for all players.
Ace joins the Attackers and adds another hard-breach option to the roster: his SELMA gadgets, which stick to almost any surface he throws them on. She can place her Banshees on vertical or horizontal surfaces, and when an Attacker walks into the device’s range and line of sight, they will be slowed and a loud humming noise will alert nearby Defenders to their position.
The House map rework has been deployed for all players, so the next time House comes up in Quick Play (or if you check it out in the Discovery Playlist), you’ll notice a new two-story addition that creates a lot of new space for entry and conflict. The garage entrance has been reworked, and some second-story changes open up new routes for attacking the master bedroom.
