Operation Crystal Guard is right around the corner and we're just over a day away from the start of Rainbow Six Siege Y6S3. There's a lot to look forward to, but we're here talking about the Bank Map Changes. Here's what you need to know.

BANK MAP CHANGES - What's new with Bank?

Ubisoft has had the following to say about Bank and the new Map Changes coming in the next title update:

  • EXT Boulevard vehicles have been moved to new locations to prevent runout eliminations;

  • Line of sight into EXT Back Alley has been adjusted to prevent spawn peaks;
  • EXT Terrace has been updated to prevent spawn peaks;
  • Filing cabinets between 1F ATMs and 1F Lobby have been removed to prevent easy shots into the interior balcony;
