With the arrival of Rainbow Six Siege Year 6 comes Border, a fan-favorite map that has been completely reworked. While the level has received several subtle changes like a reduced number of soft walls and entries, the most significant change comes in the form of an interior balcony that connects the break room to the East staircase. Additionally, the Border rework includes a new exterior staircase and an extension to the map’s bathroom that now connects it to the teller’s office.
Crimson Heist is only the beginning of Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, and Ubisoft has stated that there will be sweeping changes made to the game’s core gameplay later in the year, including opportunities for post-death participation, the ability to swap attacking operators during the match’s preparation phase, and a less-ambiguous presentation of operators’ armor and health ratings.
