Ubisoft have introduced the last Year 4 season to their tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Named Operation Shifting Tide, it adds two new operators, bringing the Operator roster to 52.

Operation Shifting Tide has finally arrived to Rainbow Six Siege on all platforms. It marks a conclusion to the game's fourth year with the final seasonal update. As already revealed, Operation Shifting Tide brings two new Operators to the roster - Kali and Wamai.

Both are medium-speed, medium-armour Operators. Wamai is a Defender from Kenya while Kali is an Indian attacker. With these two additions, the total Operator roster in Rainbow Six Siege has reached 52.

Kali comes with a powerful bolt-action sniper rifle (CSRX 300), her gadgets are the underbarrel for the rifle, the LV Explosive Lance. The latter is capable of destroying all gadgets on both sides of reinforced and breakable surfaces.

Wamai's primary weapons are AUG A2 and MP5K. His unique gadget is Mag-NET System, a thrown, adhesive gadget. Its function is to attract an opponent’s projectile to its position and then self-destruct to detonate that projectile. This way, not only can Wamai make Attackers’ grenades and projectile gadgets useless, but he can also use strategic placement to turn those projectiles against them.

Operation Shifting Tide also brings Theme Park rework. The lines of sight have been constricted to prevent most spawn peeks. Rail Overlook and Lift Car, as well as their ramps, have been removed. Also, the entire Rail Platform area is gone. 

Instead, the East and West sections of the building have been brought closer together, with Yellow Corridor (previously named Cafe Corridor) and Bunk connected to Office and Initiation Room through breakable walls. 

Limb penetration is another neat feature that has been introduced in the update and you can read more about it and all other changes on Rainbow Six Siege website .
