Rainbow Six Siege Montagne Operator Video

Gilles "Montagne" Touré (pronounced "Mon-tan-yahh" [mɔ̃.taɲ]) is an Attacking Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.


The son of an army officer and school teacher, the family was stationed near Bordeaux, France. A few years after he graduated from high school, he became a member of the National Gendarmerie. As a police officer, Touré has dedicated his life to the defence work. His devotion and commitment to the ideals of National Gendarmerie allowed him to obtain a position within the GIGN.[1]

Psychological Profile

Touré is considered highly dependable by his peers. His steady nerves have allowed him to take control of complex, high-stress situations during the tenure of his career.

As a trainer, Touré is stern with the new recruits but always tries to remain fair. He prefers to lead by example.[2]

Gameplay Description

A Heavy Armored Operator, Montagne comes equipped with his Extendable Shield, "Le Roc", which can fully cover him from head-to-toe while standing, providing extra protection that no other shield in the game offers. This also allows him to be the ultimate point-man, blocking enemy bullets as allies attack from his protection.

  • The Extendable Shield covers the entire front of Montagne's body, protecting him from enemy fire.
  • The shield also protects from the side, granting a total approximate protection of 80° that protect him from other fronts. It also has an inclined top for a bit of protection from above.
  • When extended, the Extended Shield greatly reduces flinching when melee attacks. Whereas a normal Ballistic Shield will be knocked aside when hit by a melee attack, Montange's Extended Shield will only shake a little.
  • While impervious to bullets and melee, explosives such as C4 from the front will still deal a bit of damage.
  • Contrary to belief, the Extended Shield will not prevent collateral damage for allies behind Montagne.
  • Montagne is still vulnerable from the back even when Le Roc is extended.
  • While the shield is extended, Montagne is unable to use his gun, run, crouch, or melee. Otherwise, Le Roc functions like any normal Ballistic Shield for Montagne.
  • As a Shield Operator, he is also slightly slower than a normal Heavy Armored Operator (moving at 67.5% speed, compared to a Heavy Operator's 75% speed), making him vulnerable when moving in open spaces.
  • Extending and contracting the Extended Shield has a delay.
  • Le Roc, when extended, is large enough to block a normal doorway, denying passage if he stands in the way.


  • Montagne works well with Breaching Operators such as Sledge, Ash and Thermite, as they can create holes he can come through as well as provide him with ample firepower.
  • Le Roc, when extended, can completely block out the laser beams emitted from a Claymore, allowing for a surprise attack as Montagne retreats out of a doorway.


  • Although he can take refuge in a corner, Montagne is only covered for 80° of the 90°, and can be attacked from that 10° gap.
  • The overhead part of Le Roc consists of three panels with gaps in-between. Defenders at a higher position can easily circumvent Montagne's defenses from their vantage point.
  • Some Operators can circumvent Montagne's defenses, one way or another.
  • Smoke's Gas Grenades will bypass Montagne's defenses.
  • Echo can utilize his Yokai's ultrasonic burst to disorient Montagne, causing him to momentarily contract his Shield if extended.
  • Ela's Grzmot Mines can achieve the same effect, with Montagne.
  • Even with the Shield up, Montagne is still vulnerable to gadgets such as Frost's Welcome Mats and Bandit's Shock Wires, becoming downed or electrified respectively.

— Le Roc Description

Le Roc was first issued in the late 1980s. A composite of reinforced alloys and Kevlar, its sturdiness and well-designed collapsible feature has made it a staple in GIGN operations for nearly thirty years.

Touré’s shield is the only original Le Roc still in service. Though it has seen its fair share of conflict, the device has become an extension of Touré, having saved his life and members of his team on multiple occasions. It will most likely remain on active duty until Touré retires.
