Rainbow Six Siege new 'Nomad' Operator will blow you away

Ubisoft has formally released its latest teaser for Rainbow Six Siege Operation Wind Bastion, showcasing the update's second new playable Operator on the horizon. Following the formerly announced defender "Kaid," attacking forces are now on track to receive "Nomad."

As leaked ahead of her reveal, Nomad packs a new "Airjab Launcher" gadget, seemingly propelling foes forward with a sharp shockwave. This gadget is mounted to her Kalashnikov rifle, likely as an alternate firing mode, comparable to Buck's Skeleton Key shotgun. For a closer look at Nomad in action, don't miss Ubisoft's full trailer as seen below.

The full reveal of Operation Wind Bastion is just around the corner, currently set for November 18, 2018. In tandem with the Rainbow Six Pro League Finals in Brazil, expect more details on the "Fortress" multiplayer map and both new Moroccan Operators.

As Rainbow Six Siege's final major update of 2018, there's no better time to get started, starting at $37 on Amazon (opens in new tab).
