So in test server we can now use the improved shield
The new SHIELD design has a see threw glass through which both the defender and attacker can see but can't fire through them .
And the shield correctly fit the doors so there are no pixel point for the defender to shoot

Everything we know about Quarantine so far
Rainbow Six: Quarantine is a new PvE cooperative shooter game Ubisoft is creating. From what we've seen so far, it looks quite promising and intriguing. Now let's go through what we know about this game so far.
1. Where does it come from?
I guess it all started with Rainbow Six: Siege. There was an event called "Outbreak" in 2019. We had to fight something that hit the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. There were 3 operators in a team and we had to do 3 different missions.
-Sierra Paradise: blow up an infected nursery
-Serra Veterans Wing: rescue doctors and get information about Patient Zero
-The Nest: finally destroy the source of the infection
2. The story of "Outbreak"
A meteorite falls in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico and Boyd Brooks, an unsuspecting local man, decides to go down to the crash site to find out what happened.
Three days later, Truth or Consequences is quarantined due to unknown virus that's killing the locals.
Boyd Brooks, the Patient Zero, shows up at the Sierra County Hospital and his eyes are red with spikes growing out of his body.
Ash arrives at the scene first and sees the guard fighting against the virus and asks the government to allow Team Rainbow to come and handle the situation.
Smoke, Thermite, Doc, Glaz, Kapkan, Tachnaka, Jager, Buck, Ying were sent as the support team. and of course they are aided by "Lion" and "Finka"
The operators deal with this alien threat and the even comes to an end. This was so unusual and I just loved the idea that Ubisoft was able to create something that was very different from people.
3. What is Rainbow Six: Quarantine
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Quarantine is a 3 player tactical cooperative shooter created within the Rainbow Six Universe. The official press release revels that the events start a few years in future. Ubisoft Montreal, the same team that developed the original Outbreak decided to make another separate and different game. In Quarantine, we will see the Rainbow Operators "face off against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite."
So it looks like the virus strikes again, infecting more humans and creating harder-to-fight, new enemies and there will be dangerous and challenging tasks with the very interesting plot.
The Rainbow Operators will have to risk their lives to save the planet . So far, Ela and Vigil are confirmed. I'm expecting the operators from Outbreak to join in the action: Smoke, Ash, Doc, Glaz, Kapkan, Tachanka, Buck, Ying, Lion and Finka. Also you will be see the same weapons, gadgets and abilities from Rainbow Six Siege and the level destruction system since it is built on the same engine.

The Lesion Elite Set, now available in-game! Unlocks the Nano-Tox 32 uniform, victory animation, gadget skin for his GU Mines and weapon skin for the SIX12 SD, T-5 SMG and Q-929 as well as the Elite Lesion Chibi charm.
POPULAR R6 has confirmed on reddit that Clash and Deployable Shields will be removed again due to glitches.
Clash and Deployable Shields have been removed yet again. Clash has been removed because there is a glitch with her barbed wire and her shield. If you deploy both things at the same time, you'll be completely invincible from the front of you. In your prospective your character would be normal but in another person's POV clash would have her shield on and could shoot through her shield.
