Operation Commanding Force brings in Brava, an attacker with the Kludge Drone gadget. This drone disrupts hostile surveillance and provides counter-tactical options, such as repurposing technology for her squad. Brava, an extremely adaptable operator, can gain an advantage in any environment by utilising the electronic resources at her disposal. Brava is a three-speed, one-health Operator with a primary weapon of a PARA-308 or a CAMRS and a secondary weapon of a USP40 or a Super Shorty.

On consoles, players who use the mouse and keyboard will face penalties that add extra lag to their inputs. The primary objective of this penalty is to promote fair gameplay on consoles by eliminating the unfair advantage that mouse and keyboard players have. “While active, continued use of mouse and keyboard gradually increases the lag over several matches, making it harder to aim and shoot. Completing matches with a controller will gradually reduce the lag back to normal,” adds Ubisoft.

Rainbow Six Siege is focused on establishing its status as a high-intensity tactical shooter where purposeful action, accuracy, and innovative techniques are essential to win in Year 8. A balancing update to Zero, improvements to the Play Section UI, balancing changes on weapon attachments, and a truly interactive reload system are included in Commanding Force: interrupting the animation will end up leaving the player without a magazine, but closed bolt weapons will have a single round for the player to use at any point during reload.

The Bravo Pack Ticket, a rare item that allows you choose a unique reward from the newest Bravo Collection, is introduced in Season 1’s Battle Pass. As a reward for their hard work, Premium users who attain level 100 in this season’s Battle Pass will get this ticket.
