“TIME FOR SOME SERIOUS PROTECTION”

- ROOK

 

Please keep in mind that operators are a work in progress, and information is still subject to change by launch.

 


PROFILE


Julien Nizan is the deliverer of the GIGN's famous trust exercise for new recruits: taking a bullet fired by one of your colleagues with only a small armor plate to protect you. He carries these same armor plates into combat, dropping them for his allies to reinforce their defenses.

GAMEPLAY


Rook can greatly improve his team's survival by dropping his Armor Pack: each R1N “Rhino” Armor plate will increase the chances of the wearer to drop in DBNO when shot instead of being killed. The Armor will increase the armor rating of anyone picking it up. Always make sure to drop the Armor Pack during the preparation phase, and keep it well guarded as attackers can destroy the Armor Pack or take leftover armor plates for themselves- you’d be better off destroying the leftover armor than letting the enemy get their hands on it.

 

 

Rook is a very good operator to pick if DOC is in your team, as he can quickly revive fallen teammates which go into DBNO due to your armor. If you want to create a heavily armored team, synchronize your team and only pick heavily armored operators: if everyone wears a “Rhino” armor plate, they'll have a hard time putting you down!

UNIQUE GADGET


The GIGN’S R1N “Rhino” Armor contains a hot-pressed boron ceramic plate designed to stop small-arms fire from penetrating the chest cavity, as well as offering Spall protection, and trauma caused by back-face deformation. They are stored in a light weight sturdy satchel for rapid field deployment.

 

 

The trauma plates were initially designed as a low profile ballistics shield for “trust exercises”. Nizan was first introduced to the trauma plate when he was on the receiving end of a .357 magnum. The protection they provide and the ease in which a damaged plate could be replaced, made the trauma plates a valuable addition to Team Rainbow’s defenses.
