Operation Solar Raid introduces drone customization to Rainbow Six Siege — SiegeGG
Drowning is a key feature in Rainbow Six Siege. A hidden drone in a room, especially with the Yellow Ping feature, can change the course of any round.
Everything in Siege is based on information, so knowing how to use these little devices is important.
With the launch of Operation Solar Raid, players will be able to customize the look of your drones. Special drone skins will be added to Rainbow Six Siege, with the idea brought up by the community after the release of the limited-time game mode Rainbow Six is Magic.
All the new features of Operation Solar Raid were made official today on the first day of the Jönköping Major, as the top 16 teams in Stage 3 now meet in Sweden for a chance to win the championship.

Droneskin has finally made it to Rainbow Six Siege! It’s still unclear how many will be launched with Operation Solar Raid, but (according to Ubisoft) these will be obtained by playing game modes and will eventually also be found in the game’s store.
In today’s announcement, Rainbow Six Siege’s video clearly shows a custom Ghosteyes drone. We could see these brand new cosmetics in the revamped Battle Pass, or even in this season’s limited time event. The possibilities are endless!
Best Siege Operators with Drones
In Rainbow Six Siege, only attackers have access to drones – with Mozzie’s hacked drones and Yokai’s special gadgets being the only exceptions.
While the majority of attackers have two drones, there are two operators with special gadgets: Twitch and Flores.
Twitch’s special drone is the Shock Drone. She has access to two Shock Drones, which have a taser that can destroy defense equipment, including Jäger ADSs, Valkyrie cameras, Bandit batteries, and Mute jammers, among many others. She also has access to one standard drone.
Meanwhile, Flores has access to two standard drones and four (yes, four!) special drones called the RCE-Ratero Charge. These drones can be used for a maximum of 10 seconds, and explode when Flores gives the final shout. The explosion can destroy any defender gadget regardless of condition. It can also act as an intelligence-gathering drone and as a lethal drone – one blast can kill a distracted defender!
