Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Shadow Legacy brought some truly transformative updates to the game in September, including one that the competitive community is decrying “Ping 2.0.” And that system is here to stay, Ubisoft announced today in a blog post titled “Balancing And Esports.”
Up until now, “pinging” was divided into two separate categories. While on a drone, you could hold a key for a few seconds to give a red ping that denoted an enemy’s exact location. While off drones, with your gun up, you could still mark things with a yellow ping, but it was inexact. There was an important distinction to this. When marked with a red exact location ping, the person marked received a bright red “YOU HAVE BEEN SPOTTED” warning on their screen.
