Rainbow Six Siege's Other New Operator Has a Drone
Echo joins Hibana in the Red Crow update.
Ubisoft has released another teaser video for Rainbow Six Siege's upcoming Operation Red Crow update, this time for the other new Operator it adds.
Like the previously revealed Hibana, Echo is a member of Japan's Special Assault Team. Whereas Hibana is this update's Attacker-class addition, Echo is a Defender. Both of them are equipped for close-quarters combat, with Echo players choosing from the SuperNova and MP5SD4 as primary weapons, and the PM9 and P229 as secondaries, according to Ubisoft.
Being just a teaser, the video doesn't give us a whole lot of information, but we can see that he's able to control a drone. It looks like a flying drone, though we don't actually get to see that during the brief clip of gameplay footage. The portion of the video seen in the gif above seems to show that it can attach itself to walls.
Echo and Hibana are both coming alongside a new map in the free Operation Red Crow update. A proper reveal for everything it consists of is coming during a livestream on November 12. That stream coincides with the PC and Xbox One Pro League Finals that run November 12-13.
