The new season for Rainbow Six: Siege was teased a few days back, and being named as Operation Wind Bastion. As with any new season in the game, two new operators were also teased to be upcoming in the game along with a new map in Morocco.
Ubosift has just released new trailers for the operators that hint a little of their abilities. The Defender is a male character by the name of Kaid, while the attacker is a female character called Nomad.
Operation Wind Bastion – Kaid
Kaid is a new defender heading to Rainbow Six: Siege, who comes packing with a throwable electrical disruption device that can be attached to reinforced walls or hatches. It makes more sense to attach his throwable item onto reinforced hatches above so that they cannot be breached.
In other words, Kaid is no different with his ability from what Bandit has to offer, but bandit cannot attach his batteries to the hatches, which is where Kaid will come in handy.
While these are just perspective opinions made by looking at the trailer, the rest of the information about Kaid was released by Ubsoft themselves which you can read below:
Early in his career with the Royal Moroccan Gendarmerie, he demonstrated natural leadership skills which later led to his promotion as Captain. When the reputable Kasbah Sehkra Mania required a new successor, all eyes turned to Kaid to guide the future of Moroccan Special Forces. The stoic and imposing leader became the 8th Commander at the country’s famed Fortress.
Kaid abides by strict values and he leads by example. Over the years, his teaching methods and leadership style have proven to be effective. The Fortress gained accolades and its reputation continues to rise, making Kaid arguably the most successful resident Commander at the famous Kasbah.He teaches all incoming soldiers to be self-reliant. This is a skill that his former graduate and the new Attacker on Rainbow Six has taken to heart. Often labelled a “traditionalist”, Kaid firmly believes that over-reliance on technology can be an Operator’s downfall. He’s curious to see how many of Rainbow’s specialists can adapt on the field without high tech assistance. However, protecting the Fortress is his top priority and his spider-inspired gadget can complement his security systems. Kaid’s “Rtila” Electroclaw can electrify reinforced walls and hatches, barbed wire, and deployable shields.
Above all, Kaid is the embodiment of dedication and duty, so much so that he sacrificed a personal life for the success of the Kasbah. Moroccan military personnel look up to him, both figuratively and literally as he guides their future from his home and castle.
Jalal “Kaid” El Fassi is the new Defender joining Rainbow Six.
Operation Wind Bastion – Nomad
A new attacker coming in with this season along with Kaid, is Nomad. This new operator’s details are yet to be released by Ubisoft. However, a trailer was just released a few hours ago which teased a little bit about Nomad and her interesting ability.
Nomad seems to be having an attachment on her rifle, just like what Buck has as a shotgun attachment. This attachment apparently fires a shockwave round which pushes away enemies once activated. Take a Look at her teaser trailer below:
