Rainbow Six Extraction operators – every operator available at launch

Everything you need to know about the Rainbow Six Extraction operators

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Three Operators can be seen in the menu selection screen, preparing their weapons.

Curious about Rainbow Six Extraction’s Operators? Ubisoft has now revealed all 18 of the Operators which will be making their way over to the co-op shooter from the PvP breaches of Siege.

Bringing their classic abilities with new twists and updated stats that better reflect the PvE environment of Extraction, all 18 Operators in Extraction feature fresh weaponry and gadgets that will help you take down the Archaeans and complete objectives during Incursions. But, you will also need to think about team compositions and how well Operators work together. For example, Fuze’s explosives work well with Lion’s scanner and Pulse’s scanner, allowing you to get valuable information on each of the rooms in a level.

So, who is joining the game from the Siege roster and how have their loadouts changes. Continue reading for a full overview of the Rainbow Six Extraction operators and their individual gadgets and stats.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Ela can be seen looking around a corner alongside two other Operators.

DOC

Doc is a two speed, four armour operator, armed with a Stim Pistol to heal or revive either himself of teammates in the down-but-not-out state. He’s super handy to have in sticky situations to keep the team alive and well and a lifesaver if you are attempting an Incursion on your own.

Ela

Ela is a four speed, one armour operator who has her Rainbow Six Siege gadget, the Grzmot Mine, at her disposal. These are sticky proximity mines that stun enemies caught in the blast. They’re also automatically recharged after a certain period of time. They can be thrown near enemies or placed in a pathway while you wait for a Rainbow Six Extraction Archaean to stumble by it.

PULSE

Pulse is a three-speed, three armour operator with a knack for identifying key points of interest through walls and floors. His Cardiac Sensor gadget scans the nearby areas for VIPs, operators missing in action, and Nests.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Hibana, Sledge, and a third Operator can be seen through a broken wall.

Alibi

Alibi is a four speed, three armour operator who can deploy holograms of herself, known as Prismas, around the map. These are great decoys that attract enemy attention and keep them far away from you and come in handy during defense objectives and capturing areas.

FINKA

Finka is a two speed, two armour operator who can boost her entire team with one click. Her ability, Adrenal Surge, boosts team response and survival, giving them a burst of health, improved weapon control, and will revive any downed teammate.

HIBANA

Hibana is a breach-based operator that has four speed and one armour. Her explosive gadget, known as X-Kairos, can be fired at any surface. The pellets then stick to that surface and destroy it. It is also good at penetrating armored Archaeans like the Smasher and Lurker.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Sledge can be seen alongside two other Operators through a hole in the wall.

LION

Lion is a top-tier scout operator in Extraction, bringing with him his EE-One-D Drone which detects all moving enemies in the area. With three speed and four armour stats, he is great as a beginners pick and will be key when taking on tougher modes like Rainbow Six Extraction’s Maelstrom Protocol.

SLEDGE

Sledge, a two-speed, two-armour operator, brings his big old hammer over from Siege. This hammer will allow him to stun enemies and also destroy walls and surfaces to open up new pathways.

Vigil

Vigil is a three speed, two armour operator whose ERC-8 Disruptor gadget makes him undetectable for a short period of time. Used to sneak past enemies and perform takedowns, when upgraded the Disruptor will even cloak your teammates.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Two Operators can be seen to the side, fighting Archaeans with the player throwing a greande.

IQ

IQ’s ability is her Red MK IV Spectre gadget which allows you to detect REACT equipment and supplies throughout the environment, with a set of respectable three speed and one armour stats as well.

Jäger

Jäger joins Extraction with his Active Defense turrets that will destroy enemies and projectiles within the area it is placed on. Imbued with three speed and two armour stats, Jäger is a great defensive operator.

Rook

Rook is all about support with his three armour and one speed stats. Equipped with an Armor Pack, Rook can place down armour plates for your teammates helping them survive in the field.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Tachanka can be seen firing his machine gun off to the side with another operator barricading a wall.

Fuze

Fuze is a handy operator to have when fighting in enclosed maps with three speed and four armour stats. His Cluster Charge will obliterate enemies in a room when placed on the outer side of a destructible wall.

Smoke

Ironically, Smoke doesn’t have any smoke grenades in Extraction. With two speed and two armour, Smoke can throw Z9 gas grenades which are remotely detonated, damaging anyone in their area of effect.

Tachanka

Tachanka’s mounted LMG returns in Extraction and can lockdown chokepoints or pummel a tougher enemy like the Rainbow Six Siege Proteans. While slow with only one speed, he makes up for it with a three armour stat.

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators Multiple enemies can be seen rushing three Operators by a doorway.

Capitão

Capitão brings his three speed and one armor stat, as well as his TAC MKO Crossbow with him to REACT. Able to swap between smoke bolts and damaging venom bolts, Capitão acts as a great cover Operator for your team.

Gridlock

Gridlock brings an Aussie sting to Extraction with her Trax Stingers. Deployable traps that slow and halt enemies in place, they are great at cutting off chokepoints and also halting tougher Archaeans from chasing you and your team. She is a slower operator with only one speed and three armor.

Nomad

Nomad is the final Operator in Rainbow Six Extraction at launch. With three speed and two armor, her Airjab Launcher will fire a repulsion mine knocking back enemies and clearing an area of any hazards.

So there you have it, everything about the Rainbow Six Extraction operators. We’ll update this guide with new additions that arrive after the game’s launch.
