Coming to Rainbow Six Siege as part of Operation Phantom Sight are two brand-new Rainbow Six Siege Operators. In this guide, we’re taking a look at the mysterious attacker Nokk. Read on to learn everything there is to know about the new Rainbow Six Siege Operator, Nokk. We’ll go through how to unlock Nokk, Nokk’s playstyle, Nokk’s weapons, Nokk’s ability, and more. This is your one-stop shop for everything related to the new Operator in Rainbow Six Siege.
Rainbow Six Siege Nokk | How to unlock
The two new Operators, Warden and Nokk, will both be available for all Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 pass owners as soon as Year 4 Season 2 begins. Operation Phantom Sight already arrived on test servers on May 21, so it can’t be too long now to wait for the full release of the latest Operation. It is hoped that it will only be between two-three weeks before Operation Phantom Sight leaves the test servers and becomes available to all.
Any Year 4 pass owners should, therefore, be able to unlock and play as Nokk on hopefully no later than June 11. Anyone who doesn’t own the Year 4 pass, however, will have to wait a further seven days before they can unlock Nokk with either Renown or R6 Credits. Keep an eye right here on GameRevolution for any Operation Phantom Sight updates.
Rainbow Six Siege Nokk | Weapons and Ability
As with all Rainbow Six Siege Operators, Nokk comes with her own unique equipment and ability. A medium speed and armor, attacking Operator, Nokk is equipped with the following weapons and gadgets:
- Primary Weapons:
- FMG-9 SMG
- SIX 12 SD Shotgun
- Secondary Weapons:
- 5.7 USG Pistol
- Desert Eagle Pistol
- Gadgets: Claymore and Breach Charge
As you can see from her weapons and gadgets, Nokk is best used for close-quarters gunfights and stealth. Her unique ability further adds to this suggested playstyle.
Nokk’s unique ability is HEL Presence Reduction. This glove attachment allows Nokk to move a lot more quietly and all-but disappear from any opposition observation tools such as Drones, Bulletproof Cameras, and Evil Eyes. Seeing that in action is a little creepy for sure.
It’s time to sneak up on anyone and everyone thanks to the HEL Presence Reduction ability. You can toggle her ability on and off whenever it has any charge left in it (the game will tell you how much charge it has). This can make for some great tactical plays. No cooldown means more usage.
Be careful, too, as you will still move objects and debris while hidden from cameras, a glitchy outline can also be spotted if you do anything other than move at a normal speed or slower, crouching and moving, or swapping weapons. Not everything is perfect, after all.
Rainbow Six Siege Nokk Playstyle
As stated above, if stealth and close-quarters gunfights are your things in Rainbow Six Siege, Nokk is the Operator for you. As per the official Ubisoft page on Operation Phantom Sight, Nokk is in the Attack class of Operators. She’s relatively quick, too, with two out of three speed. Don’t worry too much about her armor capabilities, either, as her armor has medium stats, as well.
Equipped with an SMG and Shotgun, Nokk could be a decent choice of Operator for anyone looking for a balanced approach. Although her setup favors more close-up gunfights and stealth, an SMG is appreciated in most situations.
Despite this, however, Nokk’s main playstyle will be one of anti-intel. Her ability to hide from all the defender observation tools thanks to the HEL Presence Reduction ability is perfect for those lone wolf playstyles. You’ll more easily be able to sneak up on players than some other Operators. Nokk is one for flanking and fragging.
A smart move would be to team Nokk up with a roamer hunter Operator (any of them will do) or to go on a lone flanking mission to hunt down your enemies. She should prove especially useful against the slower moving defender Operators in Rainbow Six Siege. Of course, the best way to get the most out of Nokk would be to learn map layouts, especially the locations of cameras. Figuring out the fastest routes should lead to your success on the field with Nokk. Definitely equip the silencer to her Desert Eagle Pistol for quieter attacking, too.
Learning to use Nokk’s constantly recharging HEL Presence Reduction ability will prove to be the difference between success and failure, too. She might prove to be slightly underwhelming at first, but smart, stealthy play could make Nokk a powerful ally or enemy.
