New Rainbow Six Siege Nokk Operator Is A Terrifying Ghost

The Predator enters Rainbow Six Siege.

3 Comments

Rainbow Six Siege has revealed both of its upcoming Operation Phantom Sight Operators in new trailers. The first of which can be watched below. It showcases Danish Jægerkorpset Operator Nøkk, a stealthy predator who joins Team Rainbow.

The trailer begins with identifying Nøkk as an Attacker before cutting to an underground location. Though the video occasionally glitches out, the shimmering outline of a person can be seen. It appears as if Nøkk has some form of cloaking technology, which makes her nearly invisible save for a Predator-like outline. Later on in the video, Nøkk stops moving and completely disappears, which may imply that she can go fully invisible while going prone or remaining motionless. The trailer ends with a close-up of Nøkk, but her hood shrouds her face from view.

In a blog post, Ubisoft revealed additional details surrounding Nøkk and announced Operation Phantom Sight's full reveal will occur May 19, during the Pro League Finals in Milan (which takes place May 18-19). "[Nøkk's] gadget is just the icing on the cake for an already dangerous operative," the post reads. "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."

Ubisoft first teased Operation Phantom Sight's new Operators with a tweet (seen below) that showcased one sneaking up on the other. We now know the one doing the sneaking is Nøkk, and the yellow glow in her hand is her HEL gadget. The image of the two Operators is structured like a yin-yang symbol, with Nøkk shrouded in darkness and the other Operator looking towards the light. So perhaps, just as Nøkk is someone who uses her glowing yellow gadget to hide in the shadows, the other Operator use his glowing blue gadget to bring attention to--illuminate, if you will--the position of Operators geared towards stealth.

In Rainbow Six Siege's latest update, Ubisoft reversed the effects of friendly fire. The hope is that the update curbs the game's team-killing problem. Thanks to the update, shooting an ally will now cause all the damage you deal to be inflicted on yourself. The effects aren't immediate, so accidentally shooting a teammate won't net you any punishment. However, continuing to shoot a teammate will cause the reverse friendly fire to take effect. The update affects all primary and secondary weapons, as well as direct hits from most unique Operator weapons and gadgets. Explosives are affected too, although there are several exceptions. It's not the final version of the system, according to Ubisoft, and patches are already planned for the next season as part of Ubisoft's new policy to push out game updates more regularly.

Rainbow Six: Siege is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

I loved R6S in it's early days, but now it's just a joke with all these outragous abilites and characters. It's not even attempting to be grounded anymore.
