"I used to be undercover. I did time. I had to deal drugs. I even had to kill. And I was so good at it that, it got me a promotion."

Rainbow Six Siege Bandit Operator Video

Dominic "Bandit" Brunsmeier is a Defending Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.


Brunsmeier and his twin brother Cedrick joined the Bundesgrenzschutz (BGS) the day after their eighteenth birthday. Stationed with border patrol he would spend his first year getting accustomed to following orders and filing paperwork.[1]

Psychological Profile

A prankster, Brunsmeier honors and humiliates his brother's memory each time he deploys the Crude Electrical Device (CED), the weapon responsible for Cedrick's early retirement from the BGS. Resourceful and adaptive, Brunsmeier relies on his cunning for survival.[2]

Gameplay Description

A Light Armored Operator, Bandit's unique gadgets are four Crude Electrical Devices. These devices send an electric charge through metallic gadgets and will damage those who come in contact.

  • Bandit can place his Shock Wires on all metallic gadgets, which include Barbed Wire, Reinforced Walls, and Deployable Shields.
  • An electrified gadget is visually identifiable by the small electric arcs being emanated off of the surface of the gadget.
  • Shock Wires are only capable of electrifying one metallic gadget at a time. Adjacent metallic gadgets will not be affected, no matter how close they are to the Shock Wire.
  • With a few exceptions, shocked objects destroy all electronic gadgets they come in contact with (except the Shock Wires themselves, obviously), regardless if they're friendly or enemy gadgets.
  • Attacker Electronic Gadgets that can be destroyed by Shock Wires:
  • Defender Electronic Gadgets that can be destroyed by Shock Wires:
  • Attackers touching a shocked object will take 3 damage roughly every third of a second. Attackers will have their vision distorted and groan as cues that they are being shocked.
  • Vaulting over an electrified Deployable Shield is considered as touching, thus the Attacking Operator will suffer damage.
  • Usually, the Shock Wire will be destroyed together with the metallic gadget they are connected to. However, there are two instances when the Shock Wire may remain unharmed and thus can be picked up by Bandit.
  • When Thermite or Hibana manage to destroy a Reinforced Wall despite it already being electrified. This occurs when either Attacker deploys their gadget near the Reinforcement, rather than directly on it.[3]
  • When an Operator causes an electrified Deployable Shield to collapse.


  • Mute's Signal Disruptors work hand-in-hand with Bandit's Shock Wires in stopping or destroying Attacking gadgets during the game, especially against Drones during and after the Preparation Phase or Breach Charges during the Action Phase.
  • Attackers caught in one of Frost's Welcome Mats can also be killed by an electrified Barbed Wire if it was over the gadget.
  • Due to the Yokai Drone not being affected by the Shock Wire, Echo can work with Bandit without any worries of losing his drone.
  • Mira can safely place her Black Mirrors on electrified Reinforced Walls.


  • As it is still an electronic gadget, the Shock Wire is susceptible to the same disadvantages as other gadgets of its type.
  • Thatcher's EMP Grenades will destroy any Shock Wire within their explosive radius.
  • Twitch is able to destroy the Shock Wires with her Shock Drone. However, if it comes into contact with a Shock Wire, the Drone will be destroyed instantly.
  • The Shock Wires will show up on IQ's Electronics Scanner.

CED-1 (Crude Electrical Device)

"Sets high-tension Shock wire on metallic gadgets, dealing damage to enemies."
— CED-1 (Crude Electrical Device) Description

The CED-1 is the result of Brunsmeier’s resourceful nature. The device was first created when he was cornered in an abandoned auto shop outside of Frankfurt. Using what was available to him, Brunsmeier fashioned a crude electrical device and was able to secure his defenses by electrifying a metallic door and shocking his assailants as they attempted to breach his stronghold. The device, though relatively low-tech, has followed Brunsmeier from GSG 9 to Team Rainbow, due to its consistent and effective performance in the field.

  • Bandit was assigned to a joint task force aimed at quelling the growing threat of the Red Army Faction (RAF) in his second year with BGS. He was recruited by the GSG 9, spending four years as undercover in the Hannover Chapter of the Hells Angels.[4]
  • In the Rainbow Six Siege Intro Video, an unnamed, maskless GSG 9 bearded male Operator can be seen as part of a profile dossier. This unnamed operator has been speculated to be Bandit, as the years 2006 and 2010 are marked as notable years on the Operator's dossier. These correspond to dates in Bandit's own bio, where he went undercover in 2006 and departed from his undercover duties in 2010. In addition, after the year 2010, the word "Exits" can be seen, possibly referencing the year Bandit departed from his undercover duties.
