There is a new update out for Rainbow Six Siege which is numbered as the Y5S1.2 update. This update first went live on the test server three weeks back on March 31. And now it has landed on the main server on PC as of now. This new update brings a lot of changes to some mainstream operators. Jager, Goyo, Mozzie, Buck, and Kaid have received nerfs while Ying has received a much needed buff.
According to Ubisoft, the Goyo nerf was needed because currently the pro game meta is utility heavy. And Goyo has been a go to for most defending teams. Hence Ubisoft believes that this nerf “will alleviate some of the frustration stemming from his increased influence at a professional level”.
Another extremely used operator that has received a nerf is Jager who is now a two speed and two armor operator. Jager is the most picked operator in the game and this was needed to balance out the operator. Regarding Jager Ubisoft wrote, “Jager is a very strong roamer and multiple data points demonstrate his huge presence in-game. To make his presence a bit less oppressive in-game, we’re looking to moderate that by reducing his roaming potential.”
