New Rainbow Six Siege Operator Announced, Old One Temporarily Pulled

A post on the Ubisoft website introduces Collinn "Warden" McKinley, a new operator coming to Rainbow Six Siege in Year 4 Season 2 for the tactical shooter. On a semi-related note, this post explains another operator, Clash, is temporarily unavailable while they address "exploits surrounding Clash, IQ, and Deployable Shields." The promise more details on Tuesday. Back to Warden, this trailer offers a look at the new character, and here are some details:
Preparation and improvisation are usually opposite concepts, but Collinn “Warden” McKinley somehow manages to encompass both. With a career of 30 years and counting, he has certainly gained the experience to handle all of it.

Hailing from the state of Kentucky, McKinley rose through the ranks of the Marines before he found his calling for close-protection detail in the Secret Service. He demonstrated his skills distinctly when he led the Secretary of State to safety, during an attack where hostiles outmaneuvered all prior planning.

The events of that day gave him the idea for his gadget’s prototype, the Glance Smart Glasses. They reflect the nature of his natural talent, to see what most cannot in order to gain the upper hand in any given situation. He would be just as talented without them, but with them, there’s nothing he can’t tackle.

His tendency to follow his gut and his unshakeable confidence have proved that he is in a league of his own. It’s no wonder that he was recommended by high-ranking government officials. Now that he is part of the team, he faces a new challenge: to determine if his skillset and iron will remain unparalleled when faced with specialists of his own caliber.
