What are the new things about Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Heavy Mettle?
Ubisoft looked in the direction of a more grounded approach when creating this operator. Armed with R4C and LMG-E as her primaries and, ITA 12S and MK1 9mm as her secondaries, Ram is a 3-armor, 1-speed operator. Her secondary gadgets include Stun Grenades and a Hard Breach Charge.
Joining the Redhammer squad, Ram is a South Korean operator who will be joining the roster of Attackers. Her primary gadget will be a Bu-Gi Auto Breacher which is a throwable bulldozer rampaging through the map and destroying soft, breachable surfaces. It is a bulletproof tool that Ram can remotely activate from anywhere on the map.
She can also choose its trajectory between front, left, and right directions. While the Bu-Gi may seem invulnerable, it can actually be destroyed instantly with C4 or Impact Grenades. Additionally, there is a red canister located on the back of the gadget which can be shot to destroy it. Solis and Mute are the primary counters against Ram, as Mute can jam her gadget while Solis can spot the gadget with her goggles.
