Ubisoft has released a video that explains how to use the new operators’ gadgets and tactics. The two new operators are Valkyrie and Blackbeard and come with sticky cameras and a weapon shield respectively. You can see them for yourself in the video below.
Valkyrie is selectable when you’re on defense, and she can utilize four sticky cameras to help her team keep an eye on the attackers. They stick to anything and can be accessed by anyone on Valkyrie’s team; however, they’re easily destroyed, so choosing a good spot to place them is key.
On offense, Blackbeard brings a transparent shield that he can attach to the front of his weapon. It protects his head, so peaking around corners is a good way to defend against all oncoming fire. However, you can take the shield out with close-and-personal shotgun blasts, and he doesn’t have any way to protect his legs and sides besides cover in the environment.
The two operators are available to Season Pass owners now. Everyone else can unlock them with Renown or R6 credits starting on May 18.

GameSpot talks more about the DLC in our video titled, “Is Free DLC Hurting Rainbow Six Siege: Dust Line Feature.” We also discuss whether the addition of free DLC is a positive thing for the team-based shooter, which is sold alongside a season pass.
