Rainbow Six Siege might have taken a while to really find its footing, but once it did, there was simply no stopping it. The game is easily one of the most popular competitive first-person shooters out right now, and it is about to enter the Fourth Season of Year 6 – High Calibre. A new Operator, Thorn, also joins the fold as a Technical Weapons Expert from Ireland’s Emergency Response Unit.
The new season doesn’t just bring a new Operator to Rainbow Six Siege, but plenty of balancing changes to the operator Finka, drone counters, and more. The Outback map has also been reworked, with new locations added to the map, including 2F Office Supply, which is now larger and has an exterior soft wall. Ubisoft has detailed all major changes and updates to Rainbow Six Siege in patch notes for High Calibre, which will be live on the main server come November 30.

In the Y6S4 reveal, we announced a disconnection timer for Defender cameras and drones when used outside.
On the TS, we discovered an issue that will take longer to fix than expected, so we've decided to delay this change. pic.twitter.com/5OxIZn1rhp
