While Rainbow Six Siege remains to be a fairly popular FPS game, it was always a struggle for newer players to ‘catch’ up with the older players in many ways, including operators. This time, Ubisoft decided to throw a bone for the newer players with a price reduction.

These R6S Operators will have a discount to 15k renown or 360 R6Credits for any players who wish to purchase them for a limited amount of time. From September 25th to March 4th 2019, you will have the opportunity to buy these operators with your in-game currency at a reduced price. These Operators include:

  • Buck
  • Frost
  • Valkyrie
  • Blackbeard
  • Capitao
  • Caveira
  • Hibana
  • Echo

While adding all of those add up to a total of a whopping 120k renown, you are probably thinking what to buy first. Here, we’ll give you a quick rundown on what each operator do and our final recommendations so you can get the most value out of this period.

Buck has access to the Skeleton Key, a shotgun attachment to his primary weapon that specialises in opening walls and floors quickly and efficiently. Frost is equipped with bear traps which are capable of incapacitating unsuspecting attackers, effectively making them either bait or easy targets.

Valkyrie’s special gadget includes small throwable cameras that can provide extra intel for defenders. Blackbeard has a special rifle shield designed to take a couple of hits, allowing him that extra leeway in gunfights with enemies.

Capitao brings a tactical crossbow to the table with numerous smoke bolts and flame bolts, each with their own use. Caveira has a special ability that allows her to minimise her footsteps and interrogate unsuspecting enemies for critical information.

Hibana’s X-Kairos has the ability to open reinforced walls and hatches from a range, opening lines of sight or entrances at her discretion. Last but not least, Echo has two specialised Yokai drones that can support his teammates and hinder enemy attackers.

If you are the type of player who wants an all-around utility and has solid fragging potential, we recommend Hibana. If you are the type of player who prefers to support your team with critical intel that can make or break the game, we suggest Valkyrie and to a lesser extent, Echo. Finally, if you prefer to be someone who is difficult to fight against head-on, Blackbeard is your operator.
