Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege DLC - Operation Black Ice Trailer US

Sébastien "Buck" Côté is an Attacking Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, introduced in the Operation Black Ice DLC expansion alongside Frost. A Medium Armored Operator, Buck's unique gadget is an under-barrel mounted shotgun known as the "Skeleton Key", which can be used for creating breaches with ease.[1]


A Montreal native, Côté always wanted to lead an unconventional life. He enrolled in the Canadian Armed Force via the Regular Officer Training Plan, which allowed him to attend University and obtain a degree in criminology. After graduation, he became an MP in the Canadian Army.

When his time in the Army was completed he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and eventually became a part of the Emergency Response Team. After excelling in his ERT role he was invited by the Canadian military to re-up and become a member of JTF2.[2]

Psychological Profile

Highly pragmatic, Côté will always take the shortest distance between two points. He is not one to mince words or become hyperbolic. He enjoys simple mechanical devices rather than the more high-tech arsenal employed by other members of Team Rainbow.[3]

Gameplay Description

  • Buck is a powerful, versatile Operator matched by the likes of Sledge in terms of playstyle and weaponry. His loadout allows him to function differently depending on the situation and map.
  • The shotgun is good for creating breaches to open up new lines of sight through cover when engaging your target. Standing further from a wall will result in a hole that can be vaulted with just one shot.
  • The Skeleton Key holds 4 + 1 shells and carries 16 shells in reserve.
