Year 4 Season 1 has begun in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege with Operation Burnt Horizon which brings in two new Operators: drone hacker Mozzie and barbed-trap placer Gridlock. In addition, the new Outback map, containing a lost Australian service station, is now available for all players.
The first of the new operators, Mozzie, is an Australian Defender that can hack Attackers’ drones and control them using his Pest Launcher. Gridlock, the Australian Attacker, has unique abilities for an Attacker and can deploy barbed mats that will slow down and cause damage to Defenders that step on them. Outback is a medium-sized map that pays homage to the abandoned service stations across Australia’s Red Heart. Ubisoft has more information about this update and future Year 4 plans in their dev diary.
