Rainbow Six Siege Blood Orchid – Guides to the new operators from seasoned veteran CoreRoss

Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Health is now complete, and we’ve been given a free prescription for all-out mayhem and three new Operators. Ok, so maybe exploding syringe-traps, flashbang cluster-bombs and concussion mines aren’t likely to ensure everyone’s vim and vigour, but they are ridiculously fun to try out.

With team Rainbow now expanded to 33 Operators total, it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed. But fear not… We’ve turned to one of the UK’s most decorated YouTubers, CoreRoss, to create some video guides for our new recruits Ying, Lesion and Ela. CoreRoss has taken down more tangos than your average soft-drink vendor and definitely knows where to leave those pesky mines so they can’t easily be spotted.


Comes from a wealthy family in Hong Kong, but Ying never let her privilege blind her – unlike the enemies hit with her Candela flashbang grenades. While they’re dazed and confused, she rushes in with her tinted glasses and earplugs, completely unfazed.


They might be non-lethal but Lesion’s Gu mines are still particularly vicious, injecting a toxin that injures opponents and limits their speed. If you’ve ever stood on anything sharp, you’ll know to tread particularly carefully when Lesion is in play.


The Bozak tempest earned a reputation for having an uncompromising attitude during her service in Iraq. She’s a loose cannon, but dammit, she’s the best loose cannon we have! She also has some Grzmot concussion mines that she adapted for her own purposes. Smart.

Operation Blood Orchid launches today for Season Pass holders. For all the latest Rainbow Six news, stay tuned to UbiBlog and check out our previous coverage.
