You know what we love about seasonal update days when it comes to Rainbow Six Siege? The fact that another operator joins the roster, of course! If you’re looking for a new main, here’s everything you need to know about the Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4 operator Solis coming in Operation Solar Raid.

To set the scene, Solis is a Columbian defender joining Rainbow Six Siege’s newest team: Ghosteyes. This team, lead by Caveira, is built around secrecy, stealth, and intel gathering – you’ll find operators like Mozzie, Warden, Valkyrie, Vigil, and Glaz all finding a new home here. However, enough about them. Let’s get stuck into everything we know about Solis and her kit.

Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4 operator Solis release date

You’ll be pleased to know that Ubisoft isn’t changing how it releases new operators and players can expect to see Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4 operator Solis’ release date is set for December 6. This is, as you may already know, the same day as the Rainbow Six Siege Operation Solar Raid release time and update – something that changes the way we climb the Rainbow Six Siege ranks and introduces a new Rainbow Six Siege battle pass system.

As a technological expert described as someone who needs “absolute clarity” and someone who’s “smart enough to decide whether [a line] needs to be crossed” by Caviera, expect an objective ruthlessness from Solis and an interesting new character in the Rainbow Six Siege universe.

But, onto Solis’ unqiue gadget: the SPEC-IO Electro-Sensor. This is an augmented reality visor that Solis uses to detect enemy gadgets for herself – with the option to ping a selection of detected gadgets for your team.

As an intel gathering defender, Solis’ unique gadget is going to be a vital asset to teams working with operators like Mozzie and Bandit. However, as this is an electronics-based unique gadget tied to Solis herself, there are quite a few counters.

Thatcher, and anyone with EMP grenades should be an effective counter against Solis – as she can’t shoot while using her SPEC-IO Electro-Sensor visor. In addition to this, Lion, Grim, and Jackal should all be operators you look to if you’re struggling to combat a roaming Solis providing information for her team.

Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4 operator Solis loadout

If you’re wondering what Solis brings to the table beyond this interesting augmented reality visor, you’ll be pleased to know that her loadout is more than adequate when it comes to making light work of her enemies.

Here’s what you need to know about it:

  • Primary Weapon: P90 / ITA 12L
  • Secondary Weapon: SMG-11
  • Gadget(s): Impact Grenade / Bulletproof Camera

If you’re using Solis as a disabler, the Impact Grenade will help you dismantle and disable stationary enemy gadgets in an instant. If you’re more about gathering information and sharing that with your team, then the Bulletproof Camera will allow you to track enemy movements as well as their electronics.

This well-balanced kit, however, is somewhat reliant on being up-close-and-personal with your opponents – as the selection of weapons on offer might suggest. As a two-health two-speed operator, Solis should feel balanced enough and well equipped for both conservative and aggressive playstyles.

Well, that’s all there is to know about this new addition to Rainbow Six Siege. This is easily one of the best competitive FPS games out there at the moment – alongside being one of the biggest esports games – and we can’t wait to see how Solis fits into the meta.
