Ubisoft has ended Rainbow Six Siege's fourth year with one last update, adding two new Operators and a few other new features.

The main addition to Rainbow Six Siege through this year's final bit of content is two new Operators. The first is Kali. She comes equipped with the CSRX 300 bolt-action sniper rifle. The weapon can breach barricades and hatches in a single shot, and create large holes in breakable walls. The rifle comes with the LV Explosive Lance in its under-barrel, and can destroy gadgets on both sides of breakable and reinforced structures.

The second Operator being added to Rainbow Six Siege is Wamai. Wamai utilizes the Mag-NET System, an adhesive gadget that can stick to surfaces. The gadget pulls in enemies' projectiles, and then self-destruct to detonate the projectile. Wamai can make opponent's projectiles useless, and use strategic placement to turn those projectiles against their owners.

Owners of the Rainbow Six Siege Season Pass will gain access to these new Operators today. All other players will have to wait until the seven-day Season Pass exclusivity ends in a week.

The new update will feature a reworked version of the Theme Park map. It will also feature limb penetration. Players will now be able to shoot through limbs and the torso in order to hit behind them. This means that players will be able to shoot through raised hands to get a head shot, or shoot through one enemy in order to hit one behind them. There are different levels of penetration, depending on the weapon being used.

There will also be a decrease in the price of some Operators. Hibana and Echo will now cost 10,000 Renown, or 240 R6 Credits. Dokkaebi, Vigil, and Zofia will now run players 15,000 Renown or 360 R6 Credits. Finally, Nomad and Kaid's prices have dropped to 20,000 Renown, or 480 R6 Credits.
