Ubisoft Montreal introduces shotgun rework for Rainbow Six Siege
Ubisoft Montreal has introduced an update for Rainbow Six Siege that significantly buffs shotguns, improving their accuracy and destructiveness, thus increasing their versatility. The shotgun rework has the potential to impact the game’s meta, particularly for defending operators, and the M870 shotgun is expected to stand out as a powerful weapon in the updated gameplay.
The reactions to the shotgun rework are mixed, with some fans embracing the viability of shotguns for medium-range encounters, while others believe it has made Rainbow Six Siege more like Fortnite and strayed from its tactical FPS roots.
