Next month, fans of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will gain access to the title’s twenty-fifth expansion. Operation Vector Glare is only one part of a packed 2022 roadmap, and although the game has already been around for seven years, Ubisoft is showing no signs of slowing down content.
A full reveal is scheduled for May 22, 2022. Ahead of this, the studio has revealed a brief cinematic trailer introducing players to Néon Ngoma Mutombo, codenamed SENS. Trained at the Royal Military Academy, he doesn’t look like a pushover.
I had heard of specialist Néon “Sens” Ngoma Mutombo and their tactics. I accompanied Twitch in Belgium to recruit them, and we have been training side by side since. They are eager to prepare for the upcoming Operation, and I look forward to seeing their skills applied to a real situation.
Having put it to practice in training sessions, I can say with confidence that the R.O.U. Projector System will be a strategic marvel that can be leveraged by the whole team with good communication. Denying lines of sight works in almost every situation. It forces all enemies to reconsider their tactics and their positioning.
Sens’ loadout makes them a one-person army, as they can bring any of their weapons and still be ready for any eventuality. The new POF-9 assault rifle is incredibly reliable, so I understand why it might be their weapon of choice. The 417 marksman rifle is a powerful option. The SDP 9mm is a solid secondary weapon, but I saw how quickly they took to the Gonne-6. A tool like that is essential for versatility.
Of course, Wolfguard is a new chapter, and Sens will help us determine how we can work together to make the world a safer place. We think very similarly in how a soldier’s prowess is not measured in lives taken. For me, it’s protecting my people. For Sens, it’s reducing all casualties by taking control of the battlefield.
Since I’ll be going on this mission with Sens and Lion, the three of us took the time to get familiar with each other’s combat capabilities. I wasn’t worried about Lion. I was pleased to learn that Sens is a natural at teamwork. They excel at setting up tactical opportunities for the rest of us, but also at capitalizing on our actions.
I encourage you to overlook what can come off as an easy-going attitude. Sens is spirited and takes things as they come, but they always give a task the appropriate consideration and energy. Sens is operation-ready, and I’m certain the next report will confirm that they are an impressive asset.”— Gilles “Montagne” Touré
