Rainbow Six Siege introduces two new Australian operators

The characters are accompanying Operation: Burnt Horizon

Rainbow Six Siege has introduced themed pairs of operators for some time. These new characters come from the same country, organization, and often have history together. The new Australian operators, Gridlock and Mozzie, follow that trend. These two characters are part of the upcoming update, Operation: Burnt Horizon.

Operators serve as the faces of Rainbow Six Siege, and Ubisoft has taken care to craft a diverse range of characters. Tori “Gridlock” Tallyo Fairous and Max “Mozzie” Goose come from Australia’s SASR. According to the official backstory, they met during a robot fighting fest, but they are on opposite sides of the Siege battlefield.

Gridlock is an attacker, using anti-vehicle caltrops called Trax Stingers to control maps and lock down areas. Mozzie, a defender, has a “Pest,” an anti-intel measure meant to stop the attackers from learning where their opponents hide.

A full reveal of the characters, along with the rest of Operation: Burnt Horizon, will take place Feb. 17 at the finals of the Rainbow Six Siege Invitational in Montreal, Canada.
