The most recent additions, which involve Gridlock and Mozzie, are now available to all Rainbow Six Siege players. This week, the developer is announcing another big change for the game’s operators.

According to Ubisoft, the latest change is aimed at reducing the oppressive feeling of Lion’s ability while maintaining the operator’s Intel-gathering ability. The operator’s scan outline is getting a huge makeover. It will be replaced by an Alibi-style ping debuff, allowing the operator to detect moving defenders up to three times.

And last, Lion’s cooldown ability has also been reduced from 27 seconds to 15 seconds. Overall, the operator has received three big changes.

Lion is not the only operator that has received some changes here. Capitao is getting some changes, which focus more on area denial. In Capitao’s changes, damage per tick will be dropping to 12, while the size of the affected area will be increased.
