Ubisoft seems to be actively preparing for the arrival of Operation Ember Rise. As a reminder, this new season will bring two new agents: Goyo a defender member of the Mexican special forces, and Amaru, a Peruvian attacker. The Canal map will also benefit from a redesign.
As for Operation Ember Rise, test servers were opened a few days ago, and one thing, in particular, did not fail to catch the attention of the players. Goyo and Amaru will not have new weapons. This is quite surprising because when a new operator is introduced in Rainbow Six Siege, it also wields a new weapon.
Alexander Karpazis revealed the reasons for this choice in an interview with PCGAmesN
“The most important thing with weapons is to make sure they work with the kit we design.”
He also spoke about the number of weapons already in play, over 90, and how difficult it is to create new weapons. He finally declares that the role of operators is much more determined by their gadgets than their weapons.
