Rainbow Six Siege Operation Red Crown Patch Notes

Red Crow Weapon Skins

  • There are five Red Crow Signature skins available in the shop for Operation Red Crow. Make sure you do not miss out on the opportunity to flash these new designs while rappelling in Skyscraper.

THE ELITE

  •  New customization series added for this season with the Elite sets. Each set includes a matching Uniform and Headgear, an Operator Card, a Charm, an Operator Name, and a Signature Victory Animation.

CALIBER-BASED DESTRUCTION

  • A polishing of the destruction tool introduced that will improve the physics quality and provide realistic impulses with minimal performance impact. Using our improved tool, our team was able to reconfigure the destruction parameters seen in-game.
  • The impact zone and fragility sphere are now weapon-specific: stronger calibers will create bigger bullet holes and generate larger impulses.

NEW FEATURES

-DESTRUCTION

  • As you can see in the asset above, there is a fairly significant change in the way bullets interact with the destructible environment based on their caliber

-BATTLE DRESS UNIFORMS

  • Battle Dress Uniforms are new ways to customize the way your Operators look. We are kicking things off with two Season Pass Year 1 exclusive uniforms for the new SAT Operators, Hibana and Echo. Be sure to pick up the Year 1 Season Pass before these outfits are gone!
