Ubisoft’s official announcement to rework the Tachanka aims to bring the meme-tier defender into meta once again. Tachanka operates with a mediocre kit in Siege. Tachanka’s LMG turret puts him intact in a single location, and it is easy for the attackers to kill him, by shooting him or blowing him up with a grenade. The rework is to develop the overall defensive role of Tachanka.
