New Operator: Azami

The new defender Kana “Azami” Fujiwara joins Team Rainbow "with an extensive background ranging from motorized Tokyo police officer to being a bodyguard in the private sector". Her primary gadget, the Kiba Barrier, is a modified kunai, which will stick to all surfaces and will create an icy barrier, preventing enemies from passing through slim hallways or cutting off important sightlines. This creative gadget gives players a lot of new opportunities and invites them to experiment with different positions, tactics, etc. Azami can create a maximum of five Kiba Barriers, which can be destroyed by explosives or with three melee hits. Her loadout consists of the 9X19SVN, the full-automatic SMG wielded by Tachanka and Kapkan, as well as the ACS12 slug-shotgun used by Maestro and Alibi, combined with the powerful D-50 as a secondary weapon. As secondary gadgets Azami can bring impact grenades or barbed wire.

New Game mode: Death Match

First tested during the Sugar Fright event at the end of 2020, a Death Match game mode returns to the game, but this time it will stay in the game. Team Death Match is a new permanent game mode, allowing players to warm up and practice their aim before diving into more competitive game modes. The players will respawn after death and can switch their operator, regardless of their team, after every death. Different players can also play the same operator, however primary gadgets are disabled, as well as reinforcements, drones, barricades and rappel.
