Rainbow Six Siege’s big Tachanka rework is now live
Yesterday, Rainbow Six Siege operator Tachanka threw his turret out the window, picked up an LMG and began running round blowing holes in partitions and doorways, all whereas yelling with a very different voice. The Russian defender hasn’t gone mad thoughts you, he’s simply had a significant rework and are available out the opposite aspect a brand new man – actually, as a result of in addition to new weapons and talents, he’s obtained a brand new voice actor, too.
Rather than sitting like lemon on his mounted turret, Tachanka is now much more cellular. He’s swapped out his old shotgun for a brand new main weapon, the DP27 LMG, which might mow down partitions like nobody’s enterprise. In addition to that, his turret has been changed by the Shumikha Launcher, which fires incendiary grenades in fast succession. It leaves flames on the bottom that your enemies can have a really unhealthy time attempting to get via.
On the PTR he had Zofia’s Face up to ability, which allowed him to choose himself up after being downed however with solely 5% of his well being. Sadly, this has been faraway from Tachanka on the live servers. He clearly doesn’t want it, although, get a load of this unhealthy boy within the trailer under.
That’s not a man who could ever be downed.
The final big change up for old Tachanka is his voice. As a consequence of “unavoidable constraints”, his voice traces have all been recorded with a brand new actor.
There are a number of bug fixes and minor alterations, too. Verify ’em out within the patch notes.
For years this lad has been a correct meme. Actually, I don’t know anybody I play Siege with that truly calls him Tachanka: it’s all the time Lord Tachanka, Papa Chanka, or one my pal got here out with once I advised him concerning the rework, “oh, Massive Chanky.”
It’s good to see him lastly turn into a bit extra viable and live as much as these kingly names. You’ll be able to see for your self what the brand new and improved Tachanka is like on the live servers proper now.
