Rainbow Six Siege will soon roll out the patch Y7S1.2. It could be one of the game’s biggest updates in terms of wide-reaching effects. While mid-season updates are small in size, Ubisoft is altering over 20 to change Attacker flankwatch and the defender tier list in its meta.

In this article, we will tell you what to expect with the Rainbow Six patch Y7S1.2. We will also discuss the new Operation Demon Veil update drops.

What’s new in Rainbow Six patch Y7S1.2?

Emerald Plains map added

It is the game’s first map in over three years. Players will finally be able to enjoy it in Operation Demon Veil. The map was teased at the season’s launch. Almost two months later, players will be able to experience the country club-inspired map. The map offers several nooks and crannies for players to set up defenses in or launch attacks.

Claymore buffed

Claymores aren’t very much preferred as a secondary gadget. They might be good for flank watch if players have anyone such as Nomad, they can be easily destroyed and only one of them can be gained by players. However, now attackers will get two angles with the explosive as a new buff will give them an extra Claymore when opting for this gadget.
