A gameplay & release trailer for
Check out the horrific new enemies and expansive new maps of the special Rainbow Six Siege co-op event, Outbreak. This gameplay video will show you what you and your teammates are up against, and give you tips to survive and succeed in the face of this new threat.
Rainbow Six Siege‘s upcoming Operation Chimera will include the addition of two new Operators: Lion & Finka. Although, the trailer released today doesn’t reveal much about their abilities, the website includes a bio and a loadout of each Operator.
“Being afraid of a disease is sometimes worse than the disease itself. There is no cure for fear, so either you surrender to it or you fight it until one of you wins.”
Finka delivers a nanobot shot to each operator before an operation. The nanites are made of zinc with the pharmacological cocktail laced into the nanobot’s construction. When she activates her signal, the nanobots disintegrate with the zinc being treated as a nutrient by the body and facilitating the absorption of the drugs. The operators receive a short boost of health to get them back on their feet, to give them an extra push, and to steady their aim.
“People died, and I hope I can find forgiveness for it, but what I did I did to save more lives. I’d do it again. That’s doing my job.”
EE-One-D allows Lion to survey hot zones and maintain quarantine protocols on missions. He uses it to detect movement in an area in order to determine if someone is breaking quarantine, curfew, or a perimeter.
The Hydrolyst Eidolon is an enormous and tall Eidolon that has the ability to alter the climate causing green lightning strikes to occasionally strike around him. Similar to the Gantulyst Eidolon, the Hydrolyst Eidolon has a total of 6 Synovia parts and will take a minimum of 3 Charged lures to capture.
Summoning Gantulyst Eidolon
To summon the Hydrolyst Eidolon, you must have first captured the Gantulyst Eidolon and offer the Radiant Eidolon Shard from it to the shrine in the middle of the lake. Depending on the amount of players you have, each player will have to contribute a Radiant Eidolon Shard.
Occasionally, the Hydrolyst Eidolon will summon purple Vomvalyst Blooms which tethers nearby Vomvalyst and makes them invulnerable until the Bloom has been dealt with. Occasionally, the Hydrolyst will emit a beam that will drain player’s energy if they come in contact with it and the frequency of these beam increases as the battle goes on. The Hydrolyst also has continuously homing beams like the Teralyst but are much more accurate.
The Hydrolyst will continuously summon green lightning bolts and those can easily be dodged by avoiding the green bubbles on the floor which indicate where the lightning bolt is going to go and same thing goes for the mines that it occasionally drops which are also green circles on the floor.
Watch out for when the Hydrolyst shoots his gun into the air as it will rain down a bunch of explosive homing projectiles. Also with like every other Eidolon, when you take down one of it’s limbs, it will leave a residue which deals a lot of damage to players that stay on it.
Capturing the Hydrolyst Eidolon will reward 2 Brilliant Eidolon Shards, 2 Radiant Eidolon Shards, 2 Riven Transmuters and a mod from it’s loot table which has a chance to be from Operation Gate Crush alongside a bunch of Sentinel cores.
The Gantulyst Eidolon is an enormous and tall Eidolon that utilizes radiant beams of Sentient energy and an enormous boulder arm. Unlike the original Eidolon, the Gantulyst Eidolon has a total of 6 Synovia parts whilst the Teralyst only has 4. The minimum required amount of lures to capture the Gantulyst Eidolon is 3 charged lures. The Gantulyst Eidolon is the only way for players to obtain Radiant Eidolon Shards which is required to summon the Hydrolyst Eidolon.
Summoning Gantulyst Eidolon
To summon the Gantulyst Eidolon, you must have first captured the Teralyst Eidolon and offer the Brilliant Eidolon Shard from it to the shrine in the middle of the lake. Depending on the amount of players you have, each player will have to contribute a Brilliant Eidolon Shard.
Throughout the fight, the Gantulyst Eidolon will consistently spawn out homing balls of sentient energy from it’s back that can be easily dodged due to how slow it is. Occasionally the Gantulyst Eidolon will smash the ground with either a stomp or with it’s boulder arm causing at long distance knockback.
This Eidolon’s main feature is it’s two radiant beam moves and it’s ability to shield. The Gantulyst Eidolon either causes multiple beams from the sky to come down and create a continuous pillar of light (think hammer of dawn) after stomping the ground or it will shoot something into the sky causing a prism of light beams to continuously rotate (disco laser). The Gantulyst Eidolon will occasionally shield itself with a bubble that block incoming damage from outside it, forcing the player to get more in range of the Eidolon. Both of these do a bunch of damage and can easily one-shot players that aren’t ready for it.
The Gantulyst Eidolon being captured rewards 1 Brilliant Eidolon Shard, 1 Radiant Eidolon Shard and a drop from it loot tables which contains mods from Operation: Mutalist Incursions but those drop rates are super rare alongside a bunch of Sentient Cores.
