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. As of January 1, 2018, there are a total of 36 Operators in the game. 20 Original operators, 8 year 1 operators, and 8 year 2 operators.
Each operator has its very own unique ability. It might be a skill, a special weapon, or an advanced piece of equipment. They also have a primary weapon, secondary weapon, and gadget which they might or might not share with other Operators in the game. Depending on the Operator, they might have multiple options for primary and secondary weapons. The Operator Thatcher can choose between three primary weapons and two gadgets, but unfortunately he only has one secondary weapon to choose from.
The way to unlock operators varies with the game version you have. In the starter edition, each Original Operator can be unlocked with 12,500 Renown or 300 R6 Credits. Post Launch Operators (Year 1, Year 2, etc..) are unlocked with 25,000 Renown.
