NVIDIA Reflex reduces latency and gives you the best system responsiveness — from the time the mouse is clicked to when the display updates. With lower latency you get the edge on opponents, and gameplay feels more responsive. To learn more about the technology in Rainbow Six Siege and answer your questions, we sat down with Seth Schneider from NVIDIA in the video below!
Rainbow Six Siege now supports NVIDIA Reflex in the Vulkan version of the game and provides a free upgrade to a huge number of GeForce gamers by reducing latency and improving responsiveness for GeForce GTX 10 Series and newer GPUs. In fact, latency reductions are typically better for lower end hardware.
Enabled by a simple toggle in the display settings menu, NVIDIA Reflex reduces system latency by up to 25%, giving you a split-second advantage in the heat of the moment.
Being a fraction of a second late on the trigger is the difference between your digital life and death, so reducing system latency can be a huge boon for all of you Rainbow Six Siege players. If you’re looking for more information about NVIDIA Reflex and the additional features that come with it, head over to their website[www.nvidia.com].
Activision has begun to tease the next season for Call of Duty: Mobile. Across a pair of tweets, the developer confirmed that a new pistol is coming to Call of Duty: Mobile in Season 3, while what looks like a new map is coming as well, based on the teaser.
CharlieIntel said the new pistol is the Renetti from Modern Warfare. The pistol is very powerful, as it can take down enemies with four body shots in Modern Warfare. It remains to be seen if it will be changed at all for CoD: Mobile, if it is indeed coming to the game.
As for the new map, you can check out the teaser image below and the flythrough video further down the page. It looks like a classic Call of Duty map, featuring interior and exterior lanes that can suit a number of different play styles.
Two of the three maps that were quietly added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare recently have now been removed from the 2019 game, and just like when they were added, there was little fanfare.
CharlieIntel reports that Infinity Ward has seemingly removed the Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage maps from the game. They were ever only playable in private matches as opposed to the public multiplayer playlists. However, both are now gone entirely. The third map that was added by surprise, Killhouse, remains available in Modern Warfare.
Infinity Ward appears to have removed Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage MP maps from Modern Warfare quietly. The two maps were added to play in Private Matches last week. Both are no longer on the list for players. Killhouse is still available.
The release of the new maps caught players by surprise, as developer Infinity Ward seemingly didn’t let players know they would be coming. Similarly, Infinity Ward has not commented on their removal, so it’s not clear what’s going on here.
Some portion of the Modern Warfare audience has complained that Activision is abandoning Modern Warfare, despite it still being connected to Warzone. The publisher is primarily focusing on Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, which are newer than Modern Warfare.
Call Of Duty is building up to Season 3 and continues to leave Modern Warfare players behind. It’s time to look at what Call Of Duty players don’t understand about each other and if Activision can ever break from the yearly cycle.
Occasionally, life brings us a gift. Something magical and special that flutters into our world only to fade away in the distance, never to be seen again.
But not this time! We’re bringing back the fan-favorite, wholeheartedly goofy and unapologetically wild revamping of the Rainbowverse with the return of the sparkliest event the game as ever seen – complete with new items to add to the Collection.
FROM MARCH 30TH TO APRIL 6TH, RE-EXPERIENCE THE WHIMSY OF RAINBOW IS MAGIC!
SAVE THE TEDDY BEAR, SAVE THE WORLD
It’s the return of the Very Important Plushie! Just like you did two years ago, save the fluffiest of hostages in a colorful mission of pure chaos aboard the toy version of Airplane. Let Blackbeard, Montagne, Smoke and Tachanka back into their favorite uniforms to fight over the VIP Teddy Bear.
Need a reminder on which Operators are deployed for the occasion? Ash, Thermite, Bandit, Frost, Castle, Kapkan, Sledge, Thatcher and our Recruit are once again the handpicked units for such a crucial and – totally – serious task. There’s no room to fail!
A FANTASTIC COLLECTION
The world is more beautiful in colors, and you’ll be the most colorful of all with the return of the Rainbow Is Magic Collection.
We’re bringing “tactical cuteness” back for Blackbeard, Montagne, Sledge and the Lord Tachanka by re-releasing their playful looks as bundles. We’re also adding some new exclusive items, including a whimsical weapon skin for Tachanka. No duplicate drops guaranteed!
This is not the main event of the Season – that one is coming later – but it does not mean that you shouldn’t provide more meme-worthy poses adorned in your fanciest wardrobe pieces for all of us to admire.
Log in while the Game mode is live and receive a free Rainbow Is Magic Collection Pack. Purchase Rainbow is Magic bundles with R6 Credits or Collection Packs with R6 Credits or Renown.
All items in the collection pack have the same chance to drop[/list]
Activision has not forgotten about 2019’s Modern Warfare. With very little fanfare, developer Infinity Ward added a new map, Killhouse, to the game’s multiplayer element, along with two others to give the game some extra juice after some players complained it was forgotten.
There is also a Killhouse 24/7 playlist that players can jump into to play the map constantly. Eurogamer, which confirmed the inclusion of the Killhouse map, also reported that Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage have been introduced to Modern Warfare.
Killhouse is the most notable of the bunch, as it’s a fan-favorite map that originally made its Call of Duty debut in the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2007.
The release of these new maps caught players by surprise, as developer Infinity Ward seemingly didn’t let players know they would be coming. For people still playing Modern Warfare, and there are still are many active players, this is probably great news.
In other news, the Season 2 Reloaded update for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is out now, bringing with it new multiplayer maps for Black Ops Cold War and a series of weapon balance changes. Check out the full Season 2 Reloaded patch notes to learn more.
All of this is happening as news continues to brew about 2021’s Call of Duty game, which is rumored to be Call of Duty: Vanguard, a World War II-set shooter from Sledgehammer Games. Activision is historically known to announce new Call of Duty games in April or May, so a reveal for 2021’s game might not be far off.
