Next Rainbow Six Siege Operation Adds These Two Classes

Here's some of what Operation Dust Line introduces to the competitive shooter.


During the Rainbow Six Pro League finals today, Ubisoft unveiled Rainbow Six Siege's next big update, Operation Dust Line, and the two new operators that it introduces.

The first of these is a Defender named Valkyrie, who is a SPAS-12 shotgun-wielding character who can deploy sticky cameras. These can be attached to any surface and are then accessible by any of her teammates.

Now Playing: Operation Dust Line DLC Reveal - Rainbow Six Siege

The other character is Blackbeard, an Attacker who has a shield mounted to his weapon, making him an ideal front-line character. He's also got a Desert Eagle at his disposal.

Season pass holders will get access to the characters during the week of May 9, which is a bit later than expected due to the delay of the previous update, Operation Black Ice.

No Caption Provided

Ubisoft said this Operation takes the game to the Middle East, but there were no details or images shared regarding new maps. Likewise, there wasn't a trailer shown; instead, we only got to see the image of Valkyrie and Blackbeard above. We did, however, hear that a new CTU is coming to the game, the Navy Seals.

We'll have more details on Operation Dust Line as they're announced.
