Ubisoft is experimenting with a significant nerf headed to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege affecting Jackal, the game’s infamous footprint-tracking Operator. Amid growing frustration facing his intelligence capabilities, tweaks introduce new factors to his Eyenox visor, currently in testing via the Technical Test Server (TTS) on PC.
Introduced back in early 2017, Jackal brings unmatched intelligence to attackers, scanning defender footsteps and pinpointing current positioning. Simultaneously relayed to allies, his ability has often emerged frustrating to counter, banned on the regular in the Ranked playlist. While virtually untouched since his initial debut, Ubisoft looks to debut long-anticipated changes, aiming to shape “more effective and nuanced” gameplay, and “increase emphasis on cost-reward decision.”
