Introducing Ryad Ramírez Al-Hassar, one of the two new Operators joining the Rainbow squad in Ibiza

As a part of the latest Velvet Shell DLC, two G.E.O. Operators will be joining team Rainbow. One of them is Ryad Ramírez Al-Hassar a.k.a Jackal. The tactically trained Operator's main weapons will be the C7E and PDW9 rifles, and the secondary set will feature the ITA 12S and USP 40.

Rainbow 6 scriptwriter Farah Brixi explained that they wanted to depict how Spain's special operations commanders assign each officer with a role reflecting their personal tactics and assets. “We created Jackal with that in mind, so that he would fully embody a specific playstyle. When you pick Jackal you are sending a clear message to the opposing team: now they’ve got a target on their back.”

To find out what the Operators’ unique ability is, we'll have go to Montreal for the Six Invitational or tune into the official Twitch channel on 03 February. The three-day event will reveal the Year 2 Roadmap, Operation Velvet Shell live demo, Dev panels, and the intense Pro League competition.
