Rainbow's dedicated sniper and resident artist, Glaz, will be treated to an elite skin, named Lethal Citizen, in an upcoming update. The skins existence and appearance were leaked by R6News on YouTube, and release date is currently unknown.

Rainbow Six Siege features many Counter-Terrorism and other elite units in its roster, and almost all of the original units have three operators with elite skins by now. The exceptions to this rule are GSG9 and Spetsnaz.

GSG9 currently has only two elite skin, for IQ and Jäger, while Spetsnaz will join the three-elite-skins club soon. Currently, Kapkan and Fuze have elite skins, which makes it two. Glaz's elite skin is already in the pipe apparently, as R6 News leaked the appearance on the video above.

It seems like Ubisoft's art team managed to capture Glazkov's artistic side, with an impeccable style on his moustache-less goatee. Granted, that's not the only detail they picked up as he looks rather dapper in the new outfit.

This is also the first time we get to see Glaz's face at all. While he doesn't wear a balaclava, and a decent part of his actual face is visible in the default appearance, it is heavily camouflaged.

Now that three members of Spetsnaz have elite skins, it is only Lord 'Chanka that hasn't received this kind of attention, but let's not forget that Ubisoft didn't dare offer him just a mere buff to make him competitive in regular game modes. They had to develop an entirely new game mode that showed the full might of the great Tachanka where he could easily rack up more kills than the rest of his team combined.

Anyway, this will be the 17th elite skin in total and we can already see the appeal for fashionistas who will aim to be stylish while trying to snipe through the clouds of smoke. Too bad they won't see him, as they don't have the fancy optics on their guns though.
