Ubisoft has outlined its next Elite set headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, alongside the premiere for its upcoming seasonal update, Operation Void Edge. The ruthless Brazilian defender Caveira is the latest Operator to receive a premium skin, titled "Mata-Leão."

Mata-Leão reworks Caviera with a boxing-inspired bundle, including a new maroon uniform and headgear combo, accompanied by a range of weapon skins. The makeover drops her skull warpaint for casual sporting attire, including a crop top, high-rise denim, and hand wraps.

However, while unveiled alongside Operation Void Edge, Caviera's new look drops sooner than expected. Scheduled for a February 20, 2020 release, it rounds off the current season ahead of Year 5's early March kick-off.

Beyond her fresh look, Caviera gains new weapon skins for her Lusion, M12, and SPAS-15. The usual Elite skin exclusivities also return, implementing a dedicated victory animation, golden Operator card, and Elite chibi charm.

Like past Elite skin bundles, Caveira's new look will likely cost 1,800 R6 Credits – Rainbow Six Siege's premium packs obtainable with real-world money. Year 4 Pass holders will retain their store-wide discount, reducing the price to 1,620 R6 Credits.
