Rainbow Six Siege‘s much-awaited “Warmup mode” might soon become a reality as devs confirm it is currently in the works.
‘Terrorist Hunt’ or the newly renamed Training Grounds in Rainbow Six Siege has been quite underwhelming to Siege players for a long period of time. This game mode lacks important features to aid players in improving their gameplay, thus leaving players wanting a proper warmup mode.
During a Reddit AMA, Siege devs have opened up about this issue, explaining how they plan to tackle this problem. And it seems like the end of classic T-Hunt might be very near.
“To be dead honest, we have wanted to remove the TH from the game for a while now.” creative director Leroy Athanassoff said. “It has a lot of flaws, costs a lot to maintain, and doesn’t really fit anymore the direction we are taking with Siege.”
However, as Siege players still use the current T-Hunt to practice their aim in an offline environment, the devs will not change this mode until an alternative option has been added.
“So we said to ourselves that before touching the TH we need to deliver some features that answer the needs I mentioned above.”
“So we need first to ship a Warmup gamemode. And we also need to have a way to play with bots in a safe environment for people that want to learn or play coop with their friend without playing against human.”
On another comment, Game Director Christopher Assoc added that they are working on a Shooting Ground, where players can test out the various weapons in detail.
“While we don’t have dates to share, we are actively working on a new Shooting Range that will allow players to test the Damage & Recoil from multiple distances and weapon setups. We really see the importance here to allow players to see the impact of weapon balancing more directly and concretely compare the changes from one update to another. We have a lot of plans for this feature and some ideas that are unique to Siege such as practicing Soft Wall destruction and testing the damage loss through different destructible materials.”
“We also feel that a Shooting Range is not enough Learning Tools for our players as there can be many so ways to learn the best way to use Operators, their gadgets, and the interactions between them. Our plan to continue supporting players with new Learning Tools for all types of Siege players.”
Siege fans have patiently waited for such training modes for a long time now, and this wait might finally be over soon.
