Here, we'll cover everything you need to know about the new operator, including whether he's worth purchasing for yourself...

Weapons

Flores comes equipped with Thatcher's AR33 Assault rifle and Blackbeard's SR-25 Designated marksman rifle.

Both of these weapons have good damage and fire rate, but they definitly arn't considered "best in class".

If you find yourself more comfortable with automatic weapons, we recommend taking the AR33 rifle. However, if you feel you can control the recoil of the DMR this is also a great option. 

Finally, you'll also have access to the GSH-18 Handgun. This sidearm comes with low damage and a large magazine meaning you can take out multiple pieces of equipment without needing to reload. 

Utility 

You'll have to choose between Stun grenades and a claymore for your utility slot. This will largely be dependant upon your playstyle.

If you're looking to cover your tracks, take a claymore to catch out any sneaky roamers rotating to your position. However, if you find yourself playing more aggressive, taking the stun grenades can help you secure the crucial entry kill. 

Gadgets

This attacker brings a new drone to Rainbow Six Siege... and it's rather explosive.

Flores can send this drone into the objective and start a detonation timer which goes off after a few seconds.

During this period the drone is invincible, meaning the defenders need to run outside of the damage range to avoid the drone.

The explosion's primary objective is to remove defender's gadgets like Bandit's battery, ADS, barbed wire, etc.
