Tachanka rework preview

Rainbow Six: General - Tachanka rework preview image 1

On October 8, the official Rainbow six Siege channel released details on the Tachanka rework and showed him in a 5v5 match. During the live, we were able to see Tachanka moving and shooting with the DP27 LMG, and using a grenade launcher to set fire.   The most noticeable thing from the rework would be that Tachanka can now carry the DP27 as his primary weapon instead of using it as a turret like before. DP27 has a high damage of 48, but the fire rate is 550, and the capacity is set to 70. It can still break down walls so you can still remodel with it. We were able to see the player making a rotation hole by shooting the DP27 at the wall during the live.

  ▲ You can now move with the DP27 which previously could only be used as a turret

▲ DP27 can make a bigger hole than the punch hole.

▲ Hatches that hasn't been reinforced are easily destroyed with only a few rounds

  ▲ DP27 has a total of 140 rounds, so make sure not to use too many rounds while remodeling during preparation phase.   Since the DP27 turret now became a primary weapon, Tachanka gained the Shumikha Launcher as his unique gadget. Like Buck’s Skeleton Key, you can switch modes by pressing the unique gadget button. The grenade launcher fires a projectile that deals damage over time on an decent size area. The Shumikha Launcher has a total of 10 rounds.   Like Zofia’s Concussion rounds, the grenades can bounce from walls and grounds, so you don’t need to be at the battlefield to set fire. During the trailer, we could see him being used like Smoke, by shooting a round at the attacking team’s location and interrupt them planting the Defuser. You can use the Barbed Wire and the Shumikha launcher together, so when you need to defend a large area, Tachanka might be picked quite often.

  ▲ You can bounce the grenade off the floor and the walls

  ▲ The Shumikha grenades can be used like Smoke’s Remote Gas Grenade, making it effective when defending a specific area   Tachanka can still use the 9x19VSN SMG as his primary weapon. There wasn’t a change on19x19VSN so you can use it the same as pre-rework. However, you can no longer use the SASG-12 shotgun.   Also, the Withstand ability which allows you to get back up with 1 HP by pressing F (PC standard) when down, was added. This was only available to Zofia before, and the only unit on the defense team that could self heal was Doc, so this could be a considerable variable.   In the live stream, the developers said the reworked Tachanka would be available on the test server starting from October 9. They didn’t say when he would be added on the live servers, but he’s expected to be updated on the live server after a few weeks of testing.
