Numerous innovations in progress
Starting today, PC gamers can try out the new content on the test server. It is not yet known when the new season will start on the consoles. Usually this should take up to two weeks. You say goodbye to the annual pass and include the new operators in the Battle Pass in the future. Thus, you can earn the operator if you have bought the Premium Pass. Two weeks later it should also be able to be bought with reputation and R6 coins.
Furthermore, it was revealed that in the second season there will be an operator from Nakoda Nations as well as a revision of “Favela”. In the third season further small revisions to several maps as well as a Croatian operator will follow, while the sixth year will be concluded with an Irish operator and a new version of “Outback”.
Flores will have the RCE Ratero explosive charge to offer as a gadget. It is an explosives drone that can destroy gadgets and kill opponents. She has a timer that announces the explosion and cannot reverse or turn around. Accordingly, you should know exactly where you want to go. The Ratero can be shut down by Mute or destroyed by Mozzie’s pest thrower.
Focus on balance of attackers and defenders
In the course of the year, innovations can also be expected playfully. Among other things, killed team members will no longer only be able to control cameras and mark opponents. Rather, they can also use gadgets like Echo’s Yokai drone or Maestro’s Evil Eye. Furthermore, a new weapon called “Gonne-6” is introduced, which only has a bullet and should primarily be used as a gadget. This secondary weapon, which only attackers like Glaz, Dokkaebi, Lion, Finka, Amaru, Gridlock, Iana and Zero can use, can destroy bulletproof equipment like mobile shields, bulletproof cameras, Maestro Evil Eye, Castle’s armor plates, and more.
