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. 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.

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 unlock — would be 1500 Renown to unlock). Post Launch Operators (Year 1, Year 2, etc..) are unlocked with 25,000 Renown or 600 R6 Credits.

In the Year 2 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 1, Year 2, 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 1, Year 2, etc..) are unlocked instantly.
