Operators

Operators are the various characters you unlock and play as in Rainbow Six Siege. They are divided into attackers, defenders, and their various Counter Terrorism Units (CTUs). As of May 12, 2018, there are a total of 38 operators in the game: twenty original operators, eight Year One operators, eight Year Two operators, and two Year Three operators.

Each operator has its very own unique ability. This ability might be a skill, a special weapon, or an advanced piece of equipment. They also have a primary weapon, secondary weapon, and gadget which other Operators in the game might also share. The versatility and customization varies from operator to operator. For instance, Thatcher can choose one of three primary weapons and one of two gadgets, but can only select one secondary weapon. Meanwhile, Sledge can choose one of two primary weapons and and one of two secondary weapons.

Furthermore, each Operator has an Armor and Speed Rating. As time goes on and updates are made, the divide between Armor and Speed grows. Speedy players must rely on both speed and accuracy because their armor is often very light, making them weak to all sorts of damage. Defensive players rely on their heavy-duty weapons and armor because the weight will make them far too slow to move around.

# Armor Speed
1 Light Slow
2 Medium Average
3 Heavy Fast

The way to unlock operators varies with the game version you have, but they can all be unlocked with either R6 Credits or Renown.

In the starter edition, each Original Operator can be unlocked with 12,500 Renown or 300 R6 Credits. Post Launch Operators (Year One, Year Two, etc..) are unlocked with 25,000 Renown.

In the standard edition, each Original Operator can be unlocked with 500-1000-1500-2000 Renown each. The value will increase within the CTU (Example: the first S.A.S. Operator will be 500 Renown, the second S.A.S. Operator will be 1000 Renown, the first FBI SWAT Operator — third operator unlocked — will be 500 Renown again, and the third S.A.S. Operator — fourth operator unlocked in your game — would be 1500 Renown to unlock). Post Launch Operators (Year One, Year Two, etc..) are unlocked with 25,000 Renown or 600 R6 Credits.

Those with the Year Three season pass, each Original Operator can be unlocked with 450-900-1350-1800 Renown each. The value will increase within the CTU. Post Launch Operators (Year One, Year Two, etc..) are unlocked with 22,500 Renown or 540 R6 Credits.

In the Complete Edition, each Original Operator can be unlocked with 450-900-1350-1800 Renown each. The value will increase within the CTU. Post Launch Operators (Year One, Year Two, etc..) are unlocked instantly.
