POPULAR Operation Phantom Sight (Y4S2 Patch Notes)
Operation Phantom Sight is coming our way, and it brings with it two haunting operators, Nøkk and Warden. Both of them greatly skilled specialists, they bring Rainbow Six to new heights with a steadfast and dangerous approach. Phantom Sight also brings with it a refreshing rework of Kafe Dostoyevsky.
Additionally, there are a few gameplay updates worthy of mention. The Reverse Friendly Fire feature is getting an upgrade, and the shop is being refined even more, while the Ranked playlist is also seeing quite a few changes. You will find the specifics as you scroll through the Patch Notes below.
Dr. Harishva « Harry » Pandey
Director of Rainbow
“Nøkk intrigues me as few career soldiers have...”
Specialist Nøkk was a sure fit for Rainbow from the moment we were made aware of her existence. Truth be told, convincing her that our involvement would be mutually beneficial proved a greater challenge than anticipated, though with her list of deployments some reluctance is to be expected...
“Warden’s situational awareness is exquisite...”
A consummate professional with considerable charm, Specialist Collinn “Warden” mckinley is one of the first civilians ever to be recruited by the Rainbow program, marking his record with what appears to be the latest in a long list of exceptional circumstances...
HEL Presence Reduction
Nøkk’s gadget is the ultimate form of stealth technology. The HEL is a glove attachment, which, when activated, reduces her ambient noise output and hides her image from the opponents’ observation tools.
Drones, Bulletproof Cameras, Evil Eyes and more will thus be unable to register Nøkk’s presence as she roams through the map, unseen. Her footsteps will be silenced as she stalks opposing operators, unheard.
Roaming will be more risky than ever for Defenders, as Nøkk could be hiding behind every corner or worse, sneaking up right behind them.
Keep in mind that the HEL has a limited window of usage, and must otherwise be recharged through a cooldown.
Glance Smart Glasses
The Glance serves a function that was almost non-existent on the Defending team. With it active, Warden can see through smoke and turn around what could be a low-intel situation.
Activating his Smart Glasses can also prevent Warden from being blinded by flash effects, or cleanse an existing flash blindness, salvaging an otherwise dangerous few seconds.
However, the Glance’s effects only work as long as Warden stays immobile; otherwise, he is affected by smoke and flashes the same as everyone else.
The Glance is a triggered effect, which must be restored through a cooldown after use.
MAP REWORK: KAFE DOSTOYEVSKY
The holiday season may be far away, but we felt it was high time to revisit Kafe Dostoyevsky. From the outside, you can barely notice the difference, save from a few windows which are no longer destructible.
On the inside, however, many areas have been renovated to improve replayability and gameplay opportunities.
Most of the first floor has been redesigned, with the most drastic change around the North entrance. This main entrance now resembles the lobby of a high-end catering establishment, with multiple areas to take advantage of.
The second floor now features a new pair of Bomb sites, in Fireplace Hall and Reading Room. The stairs leading up from the main entrance have also been repositioned.
On the third floor, the easternmost part has changed, rearranging the layout of Cocktail Lounge, and giving it a balcony that overlooks the second floor. The cigar shop has also gained a brand new balcony, opposite that one.
In the southeast corner, the staircase now has a barrier, which limits the angles one can hold or exploit.
While other areas of the map remain essentially the same, all of it has received an aesthetic revamp that gives the map an even more sleek and chic atmosphere.
Feel free to test out these changes on our test server and submit your feedback on R6 Fix.
Reverse Friendly Fire was released with the latest update to Operation Burnt Horizon. For Phantom Sight, however, we aim to refine this feature with updates and improve the effectiveness of how all types of damage to teammates, such as explosions and toxic gas, will be reversed to the player under penalty, with a few exceptions.
In an effort to improve everyone's ranked experience and make it more competitive, Y4S2 will bring some updates to the Ranked playlist, some of which you might have already caught a glimpse of in Pro League.
Pick & Ban, 3-round rotations and the Bomb game mode will now be the standard for all Ranked matches. While 6th Pick will not be applied to the Ranked playlist, it will still be available in Custom matches.
The Rainbow Six shop had already been improved, but we’re taking it even further with an upgrade to the storefront, which continues the light theme of the fullscreen view introduced in Wind Bastion.
At the top, you will find our featured customization items. Immediately below, there will be a varied set of recommended items, chosen specifically for you. And at the bottom, you’ll see all the same categories as before clearly displayed such as Bundles, Uniforms, Boosters and more. The navigation still works the same way, so take a look around and let us know what you think of the revamp!
Lesion has never been more ready to jam the meridian. With his new prototype Elite set, he’s equipped to dish out some real venomous attacks. His opponents had better watch their step, because his new technology is the harbinger of a new age of science.
Keep an eye out for the Nano-Tox 32 uniform, victory animation, gadget skin for his GU Mines and weapon skin for his SIX12 SD, T-5 SMG and Q-929 as well as the Elite Lesion Chibi charm, all of which will be available soon after the launch of Operation Phantom Sight.
Operation Phantom Sight highlights the intensity of veteran soldiers whose lives have been shaped by their experiences, as the cream of the crop of Special Forces operatives.
This season’s unique weapon skins recall this sense of duty. The abyssal Destroyer, dutiful Secret Star and vicious Strike Force await you.
Seasonal weapon skins are released upon season launch and can purchased during that season. Once unlocked, the seasonal weapon skins can be applied to all available weapons and will remain in the player’s inventory indefinitely.
A detailed breakdown of the reasoning behind all balancing changes can be found in our Designer’s Notes: Pre-Season.
OTS-03 Optic will require players to stand still to clearly see through smoke. In order to use the OTS-03 scope at maximum efficiency, Glaz players will now have to stand still. Moving in any direction will progressively cause the bright yellow colour to fade out. Intensity information is displayed on the side of the scope.
Adrenal Surge now clears the tinnitus from explosives.
Vortex Optic added for FMG-9
Muzzle Brake added
We have changed the Win and Loss conditions for our various game modes, effectively removing the possibility for a round to end in a Draw.
If the last player on each team dies at the same time, the following win conditions come into effect:
Bomb (Not planted) Defenders Win – Bomb Protected (same as if timer runs out)
(Planted) Attackers Win – Bomb defused
Defenders Win – Container protected (same as timer runs out) Hostage
Defenders Win – Timer Expired

Each player’s personal Ranked stats and where they stand amongst others can easily be accessed. Explore the main rules of Ranked (with the newly added Pick & Ban) before jumping into the game, and see which maps have been added, removed, or reworked in the Ranked map pool.
OPERATOR SELECTION SCREEN
The Operator selection screen has been improved to increase readability and show more information at a glance. See all weapons and gadgets available for an Operator, get a gauge of their difficulty rating, or choose to randomize your Operator selection in this revamped screen.
AMBIENT AUDIO TUNING
We have taken steps to reduce the impact ambient noise can have on your gameplay, specifically on Bank and Border.
The team on the helicopter has changed their search pattern to cover a wider area, forcing them to circle the objective from further away. This has also reduced the amount of noise from the helicopter for the Operators on the ground.
We spoke with the management of the Bank, and stressed the importance of being mindful of their water usage. As such, they have turned off the sprinklers in the Basement. They were not able to provide an ETA for when they would remove the water from the floor.
The fire alarm is now a more intermittent alert than a constant sound.
The circling police helicopter has moved a bit further out to give our Operators more space, and reduce the noise that the helicopter is making.
Ventilation boxes also received an upgrade, and now make less noise.

POPULAR Meet Nøkk (Y4S2 Attacker for Operation Phantom Sight)
OUR Y4S2 ATTACKER
Nøkk has been a mystery for quite some time. There is very little that anyone outside Rainbow knows about her. For an accomplished undercover agent whose work remains mostly unrecorded, it is amazing that she has managed to hold onto who she is at her core.
Focused and driven, she uses her special operations training to infiltrate, gather intel and defeat her opponents. As a member of the Jægerkorpset, she strikes fear into the hearts of anyone who goes up against her.
On top of that, she harnesses a spirit of loyalty and leads by example to elevate the people she works with. Unlike the general population, her fellow Operators know who she is and welcome her into the fold. The potential scandal her family might face is of little importance to them; she’s one of the best in her field, and they wouldn’t betray her even if it came to that.
Her gadget is just the icing on the cake for an already dangerous operative. The HEL, which she worked on to improve with specialist Grace “Dokkaebi” Nam, makes Nøkk nothing short of a ghost, and leaves her opponents looking over their shoulders.
Nøkk is joining the Attacking team in Operation Phantom Sight. For more information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter or join the discussion on our subreddit and forums! Visit our Rainbow Six Twitch Channel on May 19th for the full reveal of Operation Phantom Sight during the Pro League Finals, live from Milan, Italy.
POPULAR Simple Guide to "DEFENDERS TO PLAY or AVOID in 2019"
Rook is always useful only if you can remember to put his armor plates on the ground at the beginning of the setup phase. The armor plate boosts a defender's armor rating by two and ensures a bullet wound that takes them below 1 health will put them in down-but-not-out rather than killing them outright unless that last shot is a headshot.
The Magpie defense system can take out two projectiles/round, and Jager has three of them to set up in the objective rooms. This can be a great counter to grenades, stun/smoke/EMP grenades and Fuze's cluster grenades. With Jager, defenders can actually defend the objective.
3. Bandit or Mute
If you are playing Bandit, start out by putting barbed wire and his electrical device in the doorways leading to the objective room. The same goes for Mute using his jammer. This helps prevent drones from finding the objective. Use additional devices against reinforced walls to prevent Thermite or Hibana from burning through them.
His reinforced barricades can be quite annoying to teammates when placed in the wrong doorway or window. You also run the danger of locking defenders out of the objective, and the few seconds it takes to remove the barricade can prevent a proper slice-the-pie of the room.
A strong operator in the right hands, it's easy to get addicted to his heat-sensing special which makes you more vulnerable to a bullet from a distance.
Some defenders are designed as roamers rather than "anchors" that primarily defend the objective. Caveira is the hyper-version of these defenders, meant to always roam. She's most effective in the hands of someone who really knows the map, can aim well with her pistol, and who is good at understanding the flow of the game to better know when to go in for the interrogation or simply finish off a downed attacker from a distance.
