After the game’s release in December 2015, we expect two unique new additions to the roster that evolves seasonally. While Ubisoft has confirmed that the Operator will be introduced at half speed in the not-too-distant future, we can now enjoy the latest Void Edge duo: Oryx and Iana R6.
Having sampled both Operators at a recent preview event, we’re here to give you a quick breakdown of what to expect from her, including her unique add-on, and some potential counter.
Iana R6 (Attacker)
- Name: Nienke Meijer
- Origin: Katwijc, Netherlands
- Gadget: Gemini Replicator
- Stats: Speed 2 / Armour 2
- Primary Weapon: ARX200 Assault Rifle / G36-C Assault Rifle
- Secondary Weapon: MK1 9mm Handgun
- Equipment: Frag Grenade / Smoke Grenade
Iana R6 Loadout
As an attacker, Iana R6 is armed with a number of powerful and precise weapons. Don’t expect her to be easy on you in a match.
She is blessed with some powerful assault rifles. The ARX 200 and G36-C are both good options, but there are many better ones.
Iana R6 Abilities
Her playstyle revolves around deception and trying to lure the guardians with her Gemini Replicator. This allows her to create a decoy so she can then track the map and gather information, though she won’t be able to shoot at enemies or use gadgets. The replica will be identical to her, copying any hat, uniform, or weapon equipment fitted.
However, her decoy will automatically expire after a few seconds and will not be able to climb ladders or climb up. It can also be shot down with just a single shot. Although Iana R6 has countless copies, this add-on has cooled down – if Gemini is destroyed by an enemy, this cooling down will take longer.
Although similar to Alibi’s Prisma hologram, shooting at these prey will not ping the shooter’s position on the HUD. The prey also cannot release the ping on its own.
She can be used to put pressure on defenders and force them to cede their position or possibly waste their limited supply of utility and equipment.
Although powerful, there are many ways to counter Iana R6. Mute’s Signal Jammer will fry any replicas that step too close to electrified surfaces can also destroy fake ones, leaving Executives like Bandit and Kaid soft. Maestro is another powerful choice against her by using his Evil Eye, which can also detect signs of heat, allowing him to detect if it’s a decoy. are not. It should also be pointed out that, Gemini Mirror is unable to detect the Vigil when his stealth device is equipped.
Tips And Tricks
You’ll probably want to use the G36-C as it’s more consistent than the ARX 200 as it has 30 rounds.
In addition to being obviously able to use the Gemini skill as a scout drone, it can be very well used as bait and switch tactics – both with teammates and solo.
With a teammate, you can pretend to fight and ask them to take down a fighting enemy.
Alone, you can set it up in a hiding place and wait for the opponent to join before jumping out and killing the opponent.
