Ubisoft has announced the newest operator joining the Rainbow Six Siege squad: “Flores”.

Ubisoft recently announced the latest season coming to Rainbow Six Siege, called Operation: Crimson Heist. And now we have the first video teaser of the new attacker ‘Flores’, who will be bringing a “creative approach” to the Rainbow Six Team.

The official teaser reveals Flores’ gadget for the first time, which is a remote-controlled explosive drone. According to data miner benjaminstrike, this gadget will be called the “RCE-Ratero,” which will have a 5-second timer before detonating.

According to Gridlock’s conversation with Harry, Flores is from Argentina and is the first openly gay operator in Rainbow Six Siege. Find out more about the lore down below:

“Flores doesn’t talk much about growing up in Buenos Aires, but he has heaps to say about the crime lords he used to steal from, both there and in Los Angeles. They’re grand tales of heroism, and I’m inclined to believe them. Ash made it very clear that he’s not just a master thief, but a professional with convictions. I doubt she would have helped him get out of Argentina if she didn’t respect him.

In general, I’d say he’s a good mate. A bit awkward, but he listens when others speak, which is more than I can say for a lot of people. Every night he calls home to talk to his husband, but he’s very private about their relationship (with me at least). He cares about people in general, but his marriage is on another level. Even when he takes off his ring, it never leaves his person.”

Operation Crimson Heist marks the halfway of Ubisoft’s promise in supporting Rainbow Six Siege for 10 years. With Year 6, many changes are expected to come, including map reworks, streamer mode, better anti-cheat system, and a plethora of quality-of-life updates.

The full season reveal will be held live on Twitch and YouTube on Feb. 21st at 6:00 PM CET. So make sure to tune in live, and watch the exciting show with a chance to earn ‘esports packs‘ Twitch Drops.
