Rainbow Six Siege update 1.56 for PS4 and Xbox One is now available for players. According to the official Rainbow Six Siege 1.56 patch notes, the new Operation Grim Sky brings two new operators – Clash and Maverick. The operators are expert in mob behavior and high-precision strikes respectively, they’ll also assess the new training facilities at the reworked Hereford Base. Apart from this, Rainbow Six Siege version 1.56 update also includes stability and performance improvements.

Maverick’s D.I.Y. blowtorch can breach any surface, including reinforced walls and hatches. It requires a steady hand and knowledge of the environment to create small holes and lines of sight. Maverick must be in close range to use his gadget on the chosen surface. This torch makes almost no sound but it runs out of fuel quickly. Nevertheless, the high precision of this gadget makes it a very creative tool to use hands-on without relying on digital technology. Using the Exothermic-S Torch can be risky but the team can reap high rewards with efficient use and skill.

Clash is the first defender with a shield. The CCE Shield is her primary weapon; she can swap to her secondary at any time, but to do so, she needs to put her shield away first. Her bulletproof extendable shield has the ability to slow down opponents by using a high voltage Charged Field Generator (CFG) that emanates directly in front of the shield in a cylindrical shape. Opponents caught in the CFG also sustain low damage over time. Effective use of the shield allows Clash to block entry points, and to prevent or delay a push by the Attackers.

Previously, a major update was released with gameplay as well as operators changes. Unfortunately, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Rainbow Six Siege version 1.56 is expected to fix all these issues.
