Ubisoft Reveals Operation Grim Sky Operators

It feels like just yesterday Rainbow Six Siege players were given access to two operators by the names of Alibi and Maestro with the Operation Para Bellum update. However, Ubisoft isn't slowing down with their regular addition of new content. Last week the company teased the next update coming to the popular shooter, Operation Grim Sky, promising two more operators that are from Britain and the U.S. Now, the company has finally revealed what fans should expect on the battlefield in the near future.

Rainbow Six Siege New Operators Explained

The first operator goes by the callsign Clash and is the first defender to have access to a bulletproof shield (Editors Note: SO CHEAP). Unfortunately for the attackers, the shield is always fully extended. This means that she will never have access to a gun while the shield deployed. Although to offset not having a firearm, the shield is able to deal electric shocks to opponents that stun and hurt enemies for a small amount of damage. Clash is perfect for going out and marking enemy locations while they're on the hunt and being a literal human shield for her teammates.

The second operator is an attacker whose callsign is Maverick and he comes equipped with a blowtorch for silently opening up reinforced walls. This new tool is absolutely devastating when mixed with Glaz's thermal scope because of how quick it can open up little kill holes. Those that want a big enough opening for players to fit through will need to practice patience. Cutting through metal silently in a wide area is no easy feat.

Ubisoft is also making changes to two maps that have been causing complaints. Operation Grim Sky will see a new take on the Consulate map. It will feature some new walls and places to take cover. The most massive map change is coming to Hereford Base. The company says it is now unrecognizable from its last iteration. As of now, there is no word on when Operation Grim Sky will hit Rainbow Six Siege, but the update is heading to test servers on August 20th.

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.
