IGN had an exclusive interview with "Rainbow Six Siege" art director Alexander Karpazis and gave a detailed insight on how the new operator can be exploited on the battlefield. Karpazis stated that Flores is a crafty character based on heist movies such as "Ocean's Eleven" and "Leon, the Professional."
Karpazis continued that Flores' RCE-Ratero can destroy gadgets plated by the defenders, can open rotation wholes, and threaten defenders in "Rainbow Six Siege." Also, the art director mentions weaknesses for the new operator, saying that operators who have skills to shut down drones such as Mute and anything to disable the drone with the exception of Mozzie, who cannot control Flores' drone.
