Ubisoft has revealed a look into one of the special forces that will appear in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, the French GIGN unit.
The GIGN unit or National Gendarmerie Intervention Group in Siege is made up of four operatives.
- Emanuelle “Twitch” Pichon – Controls a shock drone, a ground based drone which delivers electric probes to distract enemies or incapacitate devices. Passing though vents and under doors, the drone can act as an unexpected distraction.
- Gilles “Montagne” Toure – Carries an expandable shield, protecting against small arms fire and close combat attacks. Team mates can stack up behind Montagne for protection against incoming fire while firing back to clear out the area.
- Gustave “Doc” Kateb – Carrying a stim pistol, Doc is the healer in the group and can heal allies from range.
- Julien “Rook” Nizan – Can provide additional armour packs for the team to suit up and get protection against incoming fire on the body.
