One of Rainbow Six Siege’s newest operators is getting nerfed. Lion, who was introduced to the game as part of Operation Chimera, is being scaled back after a powerful debut.
Here are the best Rainbow Six Siege operators.
Patch notes on the game’s test server read that “We understand that Lion is not in a good place right now. We will have more insight coming in an overall game balance blog at a later date.”
The nerfs are three-fold, and all relate specifically to Lion’s scanning ability. Most notably, the scan will now stop reading you as soon as you stop moving, making it more difficult for Lion players to pinpoint your position (as long as it doesn’t change). You also won’t be able to use the scan as regularly – the number of charges you can store has dropped to two (from three) and they now take twice as long to recharge (20 seconds, rather than ten).
The patch also introduces weapon recoil changes. You can check out the rest of patch in its entirety courtesy of this helpful Reddit thread.
