Operation Burnt Horizon Overview

In Operation Burnt Horizon, players will meet two new Operators

  • Mozzie, an Australian Defender, that can hack the drones of the Attackers and take control of them with his Pest Launcher. Having Mozzie in the team give a significant advantage to the Defenders, and Attackers would be better be careful not to lose a drone to him.

  • Gridlock is an Australian Attackers who can deploy barbed mats slowing down and hurting any Defenders who step on them. This feature, unique for an Attacker, enables them to use the Trax as an obstacle to reshape the map and control an area.

In addition, players will discover the lost Australian highways in the new Outback map, an homage to the forgotten service stations lost in Australia’s Red Heart. Outback is a medium-sized map packed with twists, turns, and Australiana, and is filled with unexpected corners and souvenirs from the Great Southern Land.

Operation Burnt Horizon also features a series of iconic themes of Australia and a new Elite Set for Hibana.

The update also includes a brand-new newcomer playlist for players under level 50, to help them learn the basics of Rainbow Six Siege. They will play the Bomb mode of classic maps most representative of the game’s core gameplay, namely Chalet, Bank, and Consulate.Attackers will vote for a team spawn point while on the Defenders’ side, the bomb sites will be automatically pre-selected by the game.

The Casual playlist will now improve the flow between the Newcomer and Ranked and has been updated. Finally, to stabilize the Ranked gameplay experience, the required minimum level has been raised to 30.
