Ubisoft Reveals Operation Wind Bastion Operators

Ubisoft revealed the next two battle-hardened operators that are making their way to Rainbow Six Siege in the next major update, Operation Wind Bastion. The two new characters go by the names Kaid the defender, and Nomad the attacker.

Operation Wind Bastion New Operators

According to the lore of Rainbow Six Siege, Kaid is a traditionalist soldier who encourages his team to stop over-relying on technology. This new operators main gadget is the Rtila Electroclaw, which can be deployed on reinforced walls, hatches, barbed wire, and deployable shields to add an electrical effect that shocks opponents. While this may sound close to Bandit's ability, Kaid is much more of a tank and his Electroclaw is a more versatile tool that can be fired from a distance to quickly close off walls and hatches from enemies, but at a lower damage percentage.

While the second operator hasn't officially been revealed by Ubisoft, leaks popped up on the Rainbow Six Siege subreddit showing off the new character. Nomad's abilities appear to be a bit more mystical than players are used to, with the unique power of keeping enemies away with the wind. This appears to be a re-tooling of an enemy ability from Siege's limited time event, Outbreak. When used in the zombie mode, this ability also broke walls and objects.

How her gadget works is less clear, but the trailer for Operation Wind Bastion seems to suggest she utilizes some sort of proximity dart. Ubisoft did drop a hint in a blog post earlier in the month that Nomad had a knack for pushing the enemy back.

Fans of Rainbow Six Siege won't have to wait long for the full reveal of Operation Wind Bastion as a full breakdown of both Kaid and Nomad, and the new fortress map will all be shown during the Pro League Finals on November 17th and 18th. Fans can watch the event on the official Siege Twitch channel. We'll be sure to keep an eye out on the latest update so be sure to check back here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest details.

New Rainbow Six Siege Operators and Map

New Rainbow Six Siege Operators and Map

Ubisoft continues to support their massively popular first-person shooter, Rainbow Six Siege. The next Operation brings two new Rainbow Six Operators and the map, Hereford Base will be redesigned. Dubbed, Operation: Grim Sky, the new Operation will also include some highly requested gameplay adjustments.

The first details are now available on the Siege blog but there will be a massive reveal on the Rainbow Six Twitch channel on August 17th through 19th.

New Operators and Reworked Map

Two new Rainbow Six Siege operators are joining the fight. Hailing from two different CTUs, they are now a part of Rainbow’s Urban Tactical Response Team, codenamed Grim Sky (GSUTR).

With experience in handling mob behavior and an expert in snatch-squad tactics, the first Operator is a Defender from Great Britain. Her name hasn’t yet been made public (probably to protect her identity and family). However, there were a few details that have been made public. She’s a hardened, no-nonsense cop itching to pump up the action and take her spot on the front line.

Another American Attacker is making their way to the fray. He is a specialist and a skilled tactician that saw intense action in Afghanistan. After spending mentally scarring time in war-torn Kabul, he still managed to fall in love with the city. Known far and wide for his surgical precision, he will stand out within the Rainbow Six universe.

Not much is known about these operators and Ubisoft is offering very little in the way of hints that might point to these new Operators special abilities. Each has an interesting backstory which is consistent with every Rainbow Six Siege Operator but the world will need to wait until August 17th - 19th to find out all the gritty details.

The adjustments being made to Hereford Base are Ubisofts attempt to “raise the bar for competitive play”. It’s unclear what exactly this means at this time but those that enjoy the competitive side of Rainbow Six Siege might welcome these renovations.

Improving Gameplay and Quality of Life

Operation: Grim Sky isn’t just bringing new Rainbow Six Siege Operators and a reworked map, gameplay improvements and quality of life are being added as well. These improvements include modifications to weapon sight alignment, adjustments to the Operator Idle Pick and dynamic resolution scaling for consoles.

GigamaxGames.com will continue following any details that surface before the Rainbow Six Siege Twitch broadcast. After the event, be sure to check back here for all the latest announcements surrounding Operation: Grim Sky. Once Operation: Grim Sky is live, the Gigamax Games crew will host a stream to show off both new Rainbow Six Siege characters and the reworked, Hereford Base.
