Rainbow 6 Siege: JTF2 Operator Guide - Frost and Buck

Tips for using Canada’s JTF2 operators.

This guide will detail the two new Canadian JTF2 operators added to Rainbow 6 Siege with its Black Ice DLC, Buck and Frost.

With Rainbow 6 Siege’s Black Ice DLC, players got their hands on a new map, as well as two new Canadian operators from JTF2. Buck and Frost both have their own unique gadgets, which when used in the right situation by the right player can turn them into great options for both attackers and defenders. Today, we’ll list all of their gear, as well as give you tips on how to use them to defeat your opponents.

JTF2 Operator Profile - Buck (Attacker)

  • Armor: Medium
  • Speed: Medium
  • Primary Weapons: C8-SFW, CAMRS
  • Secondary Weapons: MK1 9MM
  • Generic Gadgets: Breach Charge, Stun Grenade
  • Unique Gadgets: SK 4-12 Skeleton Key

As an operator, Buck is all about versatility in his approach, relying on his skills, not his gadgets. His SK 4-12 Skeleton Key is an under barrel shotgun, allowing him to quickly switch from long range to short range combat. He has the ability to bring the standard Breach Charge, meaning he can bust through walls like all of the other operators, but his skills are best used neutralizing human threats.

Whether you choose to use the C8-SFW or CAMRS, know when to use your rifle and when to switch to the under barrel shotgun. If your targets are at distance, the rifle is the better option. If you are about to breach and clear a room, go with the under barrel shotgun to overwhelm and dominate your enemy as quickly as possible.

If you find that as an attacker you rarely use your unique gadget, Buck might be a very good option for you.

JTF2 Operator Profile - Frost (Defender)

  • Armor: Medium
  • Speed: Medium
  • Primary Weapons: Super 90, 9MM C1
  • Secondary Weapons: MK1 9MM
  • Generic Gadgets: Deployable Shield, Nitro Cell
  • Unique Gadgets: Sterling MK2 LHT

While Buck depends on his skills, Frost has the Welcome Mat, a terrifying unique gadget that is not unlike a large animal trap. Like barbed wire, it cannot be disabled unless you use a melee attack, and one hit from it will put players into a downed state where they must be revived to continue.

If that wasn’t enough, players will get to choose between an automatic weapon or shotgun as their primary, and can bring a Nitro Cell with them for added terror. Frost also has medium ratings when it comes to armor and speed, meaning that she is the ultimate middle of the road operator. Well, middle of the road with a terrifying unique gadget.

To use Frost’s unique gadget effectively, put it in areas where the attackers must travel, but not where it can be easily seen. Avoid doors and hallways where the line of sight will give it away. Focus on behind the hostage, or in a corner of the room. Even at the base of an open window would be great. Use your imagination on this one and you’ll be rewarded with some pretty cool moments.

Unlike the other factions in Rainbow 6 Siege, JTF2 has only two representatives. They are both very good at what they do, and we don’t know if we’ll get more in the future, but still, it feels a little lacking.
