Rainbow Six Siege has welcomed another Italian operator into the fray: Meet Maestro, a chap who specialises in controlling remote weapons like turrets and apparently has no time for bulls**t. We like him already.

Following on from the reveal of Alibi earlier this week, Maestro specialises in ‘blocking access’ while being something of a ‘blunt force of nature.’ That sounds a lot like he’s good at going in guns blazing to us.

Maestro, real name Adriano Martello, grew up in Rome and is one of eight children. After attending the Military Academy of Modena at 18, Maestro signed up for the Carabinieri, when he landed a spot as an Explorer Paratrooper in the 1st Paratrooper Regiment.

Martello then took part in various operations in Iraq, where he obtained a scar after being caught in an IED blast, before retiring to help train special forces and PMC mercenaries. He would eventually get back into the action however, and joined up with the Rainbow unit.

As mentioned, Maestro is the second playable character being added with Operation Para Bellum, which will be released for the tactical shooter this summer. We’ll get our first look at both Maestro and Alibi in action for the first time at the Pro League Finals starting May 19.

For now, check out the trailer below.
