Sens is a brilliant tactician from Belgium with extensive experience in the military, training in mechanics and psychology. Adept at using technology and misdirection to their advantage, they will use their R.O.U. Projector System to redefine battlefield cover and move tactics to a whole other level.
Close Quarter is the first dedicated Team Deathmatch map that focuses on movement rather than defense setups. With a circular flow and a good mix of different lines of sight, this facility used by Team Rainbow for training purposes will be a completely different experience.
Shooting Range is a playable space that can be used to practice and learn about all available weapons. There are 2 lanes found in the Shooting Range: A Recoil lane to measure the spread created from the kickback when the weapon is discharged and a Damage lane to determine the amount of damage dealt by each bullet when it hits a specific part of the opponents body. The Shooting Range allows for easy and quick comparison of the different weapons used by Operators. All Operators can be used within the Shooting Range whether or not they have been unlocked. You can find the Shooting Range in the Learn Area of the Play Menu.
Operator Guides are quick tutorials that explain how to use an Operator’s unique ability and gadgets, as well as utility that’s available if they’re an Attacker or Defender. You can view Operator Guides in the Operators menu or via the Start menu during the any point of a match.
Privacy Mode brings several new options for gameplay privacy that can be found in the Privacy section of the Options menu. These tools can help prevent malicious players from using another player’s livestream to gather information and get an unfair edge, or to act in a disruptive manner to sabotage and harass the streamer and players.
Privacy options allow you to create a nickname and hide information that will be seen by everyone in-game:
You now have more control over what information you choose to show on screen:
At the Account level, new privacy settings are available that will allow players to better control who can send a friend request, but also later during the season a settings to allow you to control how you appear in the Friend Suggestions on Ubisoft Connect.
REPUTATION PENALTY: REVERSE FRIENDLY FIRE
Part of the Reputation System and the first phase to be deployed. It implements a reputation penalty when we detect regular abuses of friendly fire.
The purpose of reputation penalties is to activate when we detect that someone has abused a mechanism during several matches, in this case the Reverse Friendly Fire. It aims to better control and address certain regular abuses of Friendly Fire and reduce the frustration associated with recidivists that injure too many teammates.
SCREEN SHAKE INTENSITY
