Rainbow Six Siege Y6S3 Crystal Guard Patch Notes Revealed

41 05/08/2022

Ubisoft has released the patch notes for Rainbow Six Siege Crystal Guard. Y6S3 of Rainbow Six Siege launches sometime in September, but the new season is now available on the PC public test servers, with the new operator Osa coming on August 18.

The main addition in Crystal Guard is the brand-new attacker, Osa. Rainbow Six Siege's first transgender operator, Osa's gadget is the transparent Talon-8 shield, which can be carried or deployed. The shield can be placed on the floor, or in windows or doorways, allowing her to observe the enemy while in full cover.

The Crystal Guard update also includes reworks of three maps; Bank, Coastline, and Clubhouse. All three maps have received technical overhauls to match modern standards and Bank has received an art overhaul. The new update now allows players to mix and match elite headgear and uniforms with any other headgear and uniforms, as long as it's for the same operator.

The update also includes a price reduction for five operators. Maverick and Clash now cost 10,000 Renown or 240 R6 Credit, Amaru and Goyo are now 15,000 Renown or 360 R6 Credits. Finally, Zero, also known as Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell, now costs 20,000 Renown or 480 R6 Credits.

While the alien-infested PvE spinoff game Rainbow Six Extraction was delayed until January 2022, the Rainbow Six Siege event inspired by the game, Containment, is still live through August 24.
