A new leaked video supposedly shows the gadgets and abilities for two upcoming Rainbow Six Siege operators that will arrive in Season 3 and 4, giving us an early preview of what they’ll be capable of.

Rainbow Six’s second Year 5 season called “Operation Steel Wave” finally kicked off on June 16, but just a few days after a new video showing two, yet unannounced operators and their abilities surfaced.

The attacking operator featured first will arrive in Year 5 Season 3, and the defender that appears second will arrive in Season 4, according to the video.

First, the male attacking operator is named “Scout” in the build featured in the video, and will be arriving in Season 3, whenever it begins. Right away it’s clear his name is a clear indication of what developers intend for his role.

Scout’s gadget is called a “Secondary Hard Breacher” and in the video it blows the surface off of the floor allowing us to look and shoot through, but doesn’t take out the crossbeams below.

He can also shoot out cameras that stick into walls or other surfaces which seems to be able to shoot and damage other players along with giving info on their position.

For weapons, Scout can use either the SC3000K short-medium range rifle, or the MP7 submachine gun, and his secondary is the 5.7 USG semiautomatic pistol.

Next up we have the defending operator known as “Aruni” in the video, who will be arriving in Season 4 of Rainbow Six’s Year 5. She can take either the full auto P10 Roni pistol conversion or the long-range Mk 14 EBR rifle. For a sidearm, she gets the 9mm PRB92 pistol.

This could very well be our first look at Season 4’s new defensive operator “Aruni.”

Aruni already seems like a very unique and fun operator right off the bat. Her gadget deploys a kind of laser beam wall that will probably damage enemies or alert you to their presence (or both!).

She also comes with a robotic arm that can punch through walls and barriers, which will definitely let you get the drop on unsuspecting attackers.

As we said before, we don’t know exactly when Season 3 and 4 will begin, or who Scout and Aruni’s counterparts will be, but be sure to stick with Dexerto for all the latest Rainbow Six Siege news and info as it becomes available and as we move through Year 5.

Cyclops Athlete Gaming avoid ban after throwing Rainbow Six match

One of APAC’s most prestigious Rainbow Six teams, Cyclops Athlete Gaming, has avoided disqualifications and suspensions after the team was found guilty of throwing a Pro League match to get better seeding.

Cyclops Athlete Gaming were put under the microscope after the team admitted to throwing a Rainbow Six match in the APAC North League to secure better seeding for the November Major.

In their October 22 game against QConfirm, the CAG players intentionally picked off-meta compositions and played below their level. If they lost, they could secure second seed heading into the Major, as Cloud9 would no longer be able to finish above them due to the nature of the Swiss format.

Cyclops Athlete Gaming have avoided any major punishment after they were found guilty of throwing a Rainbow Six match.

Now, a month later, Ubisoft has finally handed down their judgment on the throw, claiming the team’s “unusual conduct” broke the global ruleset, regardless of whether losing was to their benefit or not.

“Unusual conduct was noticed from players on the Cyclops Athlete Gaming team during their match against QConfirm. Various actions made by their players brought into question the seriousness with which they were playing this league game,” Ubisoft stated.

“The investigation conducted with the help of our partner in the region showed that Cyclops Athlete Gaming acted in a non-competitive manner that strictly goes against the Global Rulebook.”

However, Ubisoft were lenient in their punishments for the throw. They noted that Cyclops acted in their own best interests, and their actions revealed a flaw in the system.

The players themselves managed to escape suspensions, and the organization as a whole will be able to compete in the upcoming Asia-Pacific Major. However, coach Hibiki ‘XQQ’ Motoyama was banned by Ubisoft for six months for admitting to throwing matches on Twitter.

XQQ left his post at Cyclops Athlete Gaming days after the drama, and is now the coach of Absolute Jupiter’s Valorant team. It’s unclear if Riot are going to transfer XQQ’s coaching ban in Rainbow Six to Valorant.

The organization was fined $5,000 USD.

Cyclops Athlete Gaming will also retain their second seed for the November APAC Major. They will play the winner of GUTS Gaming and Cloud9 on November 25.
