Kaid and Nomad coming to Rainbow Six Siege to blow you away, literally


Operation Wind Bastion

The next two Operators have been revealed for Ubisoft's intense multiplayer title Rainbow Six Siege. Kaid and Nomad are headed to the wall-smashing shooter as part of Siege's next update; Operation Wind Bastion.

Officially revealed yesterday, new Defender Jalal "Kaid" El Fassi is a stoic gentleman and one of Siege's more-mature characters. Relying on good old fashioned skill (and a high armour level) to get the job done, Kaid is still not averse to utilising his handy electroclaw device. This gadget can be deployed in seconds to instantly electrify reinforced doors and windows, deployable shields and even razor wire.

Our second Operator was actually leaked a little early on the Siege subreddit, so details are scarce, but Nomad is a Moroccan woman who, in her teaser trailer, appears to have the ability to fire off concussive rounds that literally blow people through the air. This is obviously similar tech to the way the "Smasher" enemy tossed you away during previous event "Outbreak".

Full details on Kaid, Nomad and Operation Wind Bastion are expected to be revealed at the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals, which take place this weekend and can be watched right here on Twitch.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
