– Lowered damage taken when meleeing electrified barbed wires from 15 to 3/damage tick.
– Increased recoil for .44 Mag Semi Auto
– Lowered number of electroclaws to 2.
– Players now only receive 2 points for deploying electroclaw.
– Airjab will no longer detect targets while traveling
– 1.5s delay on warhead between the moment it sticks and the moment it will activate
– Increase to IQ’s gadget detection range from 15m to 20m
– Night Maps have all been removed for all maps for Ranked.
We came to this decision based on both feedback from players and the fact that we have found that Night maps hinder competitive gameplay. Night map versions will still be available in the Casual Map Playlist.
– Improved lighting algorithms.
– Tweaked map moods.
– Night map sky environment update (similar to previous HDR map updates).
This goal of this lighting update is to provide a more realistic look and feel for the Rainbow Six Siege environment. With the new lighting algorithms being introduced into our global illumination system, this update will allow us to provide greater lighting precision and give us a greater degree of artistic control for all our day and night maps. While making these changes, we worked closely with player feedback to ensure that all lighting changes are transparent in terms of gameplay and will have no effect on player performance.
