“LIGHT’S OUT.”

- THATCHER

 

Every week we will unveil a new Operator Spotlight - going into detail on the background, inspiration, and gameplay of each operator. Please keep in mind that operators are a work in progress, and information is still subject to change by launch.

 


PROFILE


Born into a family of stevedores, Baker enlisted for active military duty on his eighteenth birthday. A veteran of three wars, Baker was the oldest SAS operative on active duty until he was recruited by Rainbow. Highly observant, calculating and decisive, Baker’s demeanor may denote traces of impatient cynicism, but he possesses a profound sense of ethical responsibility. He does best when assigned with junior operators of strong moral conviction, whom he can mentor.

GAMEPLAY


Thatcher can disable enemy traps that are out of reach: if you know the enemy's location, you can break a window or blow a wall out to throw Thatcher’s EMP grenade from cover - Any electronics that are in range of the grenade's blast will be instantly disabled. With Thatcher leading the attack your team can nullify the effects of Mute’s Jamming device, enabling his team to destroy any walls that would have been protected from breach charges, and other remote detonated devices.

 

 

Customization-wise, you can equip Breach Charges for versatility and be able to breach walls and floors on your own, or you can use Stun Grenades instead and go in with a full assault build.

 

Thatcher’s primary weapon is the HK33, he can swap it out for the Enfield for better damage but overall less weapon control.

UNIQUE GADGET


The EMP’s efficacy in anti-electronic warfare has been known and studied since the early 1960s and features prominently in media depictions, but practical battlefield applications have eluded CTU squads until very recently. Team Rainbow’s engineers recently made a breakthrough in solving the problem of creating a localized fission reaction, while keeping gamma radiation to tolerable levels, resulting in the EG Mk0-EMP Grenade, a personal handheld device. No one is more suited to wield this novel device than Thatcher, known for his warnings against over-reliance on technology.
