Rainbow Six Siege Teases its Stealthy and Stylish New Phantom Sight Operators
Rainbow Six Siege’s second season of Year 4, entitled Operation Phantom Sight, will arrive soon, and Ubisoft is teasing the update’s new Operators. The first addition is Nokk, a Danish attacker who uses the HEL, a cloaking device the grants limited invisibility to cameras and other players. That certainly sounds helpful! Check out a Nokk teaser trailer and description, below.
Focused and driven, Nøkk uses her special operations training to infiltrate, gather intel and defeat her opponents. As a member of the Jægerkorpset, she strikes fear into the hearts of anyone who goes up against her. On top of that, she harnesses a spirit of loyalty and leads by example to elevate the people she works with. Unlike the general population, her fellow Operators know who she is and welcome her into the fold. The potential scandal her family might face is of little importance to them; she’s one of the best in her field, and they wouldn’t betray her even if it came to that.
Her gadget is just the icing on the cake for an already dangerous operative. The HEL, which she worked on to improve with specialist Grace “Dokkaebi” Nam, makes Nøkk nothing short of a ghost, and leaves her opponents looking over their shoulders.
Our other new Phantom Sight Operator is Warden, an American defender who uses his special Glance Smart Glasses to gain crucial info on his opponents. He also looks like a stylish Commissioner Gordon, so he’s got that going for him. Get the lowdown on him, below.
Hailing from the state of Kentucky, Collinn “Warden” McKinley rose through the ranks of the Marines before he found his calling for close-protection detail in the Secret Service. He demonstrated his skills distinctly when he led the Secretary of State to safety, during an attack where hostiles outmaneuvered all prior planning. The events of that day gave him the idea for his gadget’s prototype, the Glance Smart Glasses. They reflect the nature of his natural talent, to see what most cannot in order to gain the upper hand in any given situation. He would be just as talented without them, but with them, there’s nothing he can’t tackle.
His tendency to follow his gut and his unshakeable confidence have proved that he is in a league of his own. It’s no wonder that he was recommended by high-ranking government officials. Now that he is part of the team, he faces a new challenge: to determine if his skillset and iron will remain unparalleled when faced with specialists of his own caliber.
Aside from the two new characters, we know Operation Phantom Sight will include a rework of the Kafe map. Aside from that, the season remains a bit of a mystery – Ubisoft is promising to reveal more during the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Trials on May 19.
Rainbow Six Siege is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Operation Phantom Sight will likely arrive sometime in June.
