Rainbow Six Siege “Operation North Star” defender Thunderbird featured in new trailer

Recent articles

Last weekend, Ubisoft revealed the first details about Rainbow Six Siege Year 6, Season 2, entitled Operation North Star, including its new Defender, Thunderbird. Real name Mina Sky, Thunderbird is an indigenous healer / medic who hails from the Nakoda tribes who originally lived in Montana and Western Canada. You can watch a short cinematic introduction to Thunderbird below.

And here’s the full reveal of Thunderbird gameplay …

For those who don’t have time to watch the full video, Thunderbird’s gadget is the Kona Healing Station, which can plant them wherever they want. The healing station can deploy health multiple times (during a cool down period), but beware – your enemies can take advantage of it too, so it’s probably best to move it regularly or hide it in tricky locations. Oh, and just because she’s a healer doesn’t mean Thunderbird is defenseless – she’s going to battle the Spear .308 assault rifle or SPAS-15 shotgun, with the Bearing 9 or Q-929 as her secondary.

Of course, Operation North Star will include several other features alongside Thunderbird, including a rework of the Favela map and more. Here’s one quick overview what the RSS team in Montreal, Canada is working on

North Star is the next season of R6 and features Tweaks for the Operator gadgets for Smoke, Mira, Maestro and Melusi, as well as a host of game improvements, including some major changes to barrel attachments. The Favela map has also been reworked into a night map, with a more interconnected map and far less destructible exterior walls.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4 and PS5. Operation North Star arrives on the test servers tomorrow. There’s no word yet on when next season will be available to everyone, but they usually keep testing for two or three weeks before kicking off.
