Rainbow Six Siege Reveals New Blowtorch-Wielding Operator ‘Maverick’ (VIDEO)
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has been absolutely abuzz with new content reveals, the most recent of which was a brand new defender named Clash, the first of her kind to come packing a badass riot shield. Now, yet another new Operator has been revealed, and he comes equipped with a blowtorch!
Previously uncovered in a leak involving the embed coding within Clash’s teaser trailer, the latest attacker to join Rainbow Six Siege is named Maverick, and he uses his D.I.Y. blowtorch to create ‘murder holes,’ which sounds pretty terrifying. Check out the teaser trailer for Maverick below:
Here’s the character synopsis of Maverick, courtesy of Ubisoft:
“Maverick is known for his precise work and keen mind, yet he remains an enigma within Rainbow Six.
He was investigating the case of a missing reporter when he himself went MIA. The Unit had no means of communicating with him. Maverick re-emerged two years later with enough intel to dismantle a major insurgency operation. No one knows what really happened to him during those two years, but he’s been seen carrying a D.I.Y. blowtorch ever since, one that can make holes in metal surfaces. On the field, he’s found multiple uses for it, including but not limited to making murder holes. It takes a patient and fast Operator like Maverick to hold those angles.
Maverick’s expertise and his list of successful missions became the stuff of legend among Intelligence Collectors, gaining the attention of Rainbow Six.
It takes someone with exceptional intelligence, a deep understanding of human behavior, and high adaptability to one’s environment to do what he does. The one person who still does it best is Erik “Maverick” Thorn.”
Those interested in Maverick won’t have to wait long to learn more, as full reveals for both the blowtorch wielder and Clash are promised to take place during Rainbow Six Siege’s Six Major event in Paris, which takes place between today and August 19th. Those interested in watching the event can do so here.
Rainbow Six Siege is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
