Here’s more:

In Crimson Heist, players will discover a brand-new attacker: Flores. Equipped with an original gadget called the RCE – Ratero Charge, Flores can deploy a remote-controlled explosive device at his feet and drive it through the map during a limited period of time until it detonates in a powerful explosion. Flores is armed with an AR33 or an SR-25 as a primary weapon and a GSH-18 as a secondary weapon.

In addition to the new operator, players will have access to a reimagined Border map, which has been newly reworked with an interior balcony connecting the East staircase to Break room. The bathroom has also been extended to be connected to the Tellers. Players will play in a new challenging environment with some entries blocked, a reduced number of destructible walls, and an additional outside staircase.
