- "Sets bulletproof barricades, more resistant than standard ones."
— UTP1-Universal Tactical Panel Description
Miles "Castle" Campbell is a Defending Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. A Medium Armored Operator, Castle is equipped with three Universal Tactical Panels that block bullets.
Castle graduated from California State Los Angeles with a bachelor's degree in Science and Criminal Justice and promptly joined the LAPD. After five years, he was assigned to the LAPD SWAT team where he excelled at for three years before being transferred to the FBI. Once two years had passed, his career had taken a natural progression as he was reassigned to the FBI SWAT team. He brings an expertise in defense and reinforcement to Team Rainbow, ever ready to deploy his signature reinforced barricades.
Psychological ProfileCastle has a knack for putting people at ease, always appearing comfortable despite the situation. He constantly strives to make sure that those around him are taken care of and feel safe and is highly protective of people close to him. Castle studies languages as a hobby, being able to speak Latin, Spanish, and Korean.
- Castle carries 3 Armor Panels, which he can deploy in place of a normal wooden barricade for doorways and windows. The Armor Panels are completely bulletproof and are far tougher than normal barricades.
- The fastest way to destroy Armor Panels are to use explosives. Breach Charges and Frag Grenades are the simplest explosive gadgets available to the Attackers.
- Castle can greatly slow down the enemies' progression by blocking doorways or windows with Armor Panels, requiring a higher amount of destruction to go through. Since the Armor Panels are bulletproof, they are especially useful to cover up windows that are highly exposed to enemy fire.
- These Armor Panels become extremely powerful when used in coordination with Mute's Signal Disruptors, as they will prevent the enemies from using any breach charges to break it.
- Armor Panels take increased time for defenders to pull off.
- Any Armor Panel taken down are returned to Castle when taken down by defenders.
- Operators cannot break holes in Armor Panels easily, restricting them from looking through any holes made.
- Some weapons and gadgets can still penetrate the Armor Panels:
- Glaz's OTs-03 is able to penetrate through the Armored Panels, and well as completely destroy one in 12 shots.
- Fuze's Cluster Charges can be deployed on Armor Panels, and will punch out a mid-sized hole on the Armor Panel after being detonated.
- Like Fuze, Ying's Candelas can also be deployed on Armor Panels, but the hole created is much smaller.
- The 707th SMB's BOSG.12.2 can shoot out one layer out of the three layers that make up an Armor Panel. They can create a peek hole by shooting out all three layers. With enough damage, they can even completely destroy an Armor Panel.
- Castle's Armor Panels can be destroyed manually if hit with a melee attack 12 times.
- Like normal barricades, Armored Panels placed on doorways are not fully enclosed at the bottom. This makes it difficult for an attacker to place a Breach Charge on it, as any defenders inside can use the deployment time to shoot at their exposed feet and kill them.
- Castle can use the seemingly invincible appearance of the Armor Panels to lay down a surprise attack. By pre-hitting the Armor Panels 11 times, Castle can then destroy it with one melee attack, giving a surprise to enemies behind it. If he has spare Impact Grenades, he can use them to instantly destroy his armor panels as well.
Working with FBI SWAT, Campbell was in the middle of a hostage extraction when he became cornered in a small outbuilding. The dilapidated structure lacked a door. Utilizing what was available to him, Campbell fashioned a crude blockade with a discarded blanket and a staple gun he found in the shed. This allowed him to limit the line of sight to the building and remain concealed until backup took out the pursuing hostiles. This experience inspired the creation of the UTP1-Universal Tactical Panel, a lightweight barricade that has been successfully utilized in FBI SWAT operations since its implementation in 2013.
- Castle's operator video shows him using an SG-CQB, which is neither something he can equip nor a part of his CTU.
- His beta badge depicted an inverted Valknut, a symbol rooted in Germanic Paganism.
- Castle has two Operator artworks, featuring similar poses but at a different angle towards the camera. A more sideways one is found in-game, while a more front-facing one is found on the official site.
- The armor panels are printed with the word "UHMWPE", which stands for Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, one of the toughest man-made materials used in many heavy duty applications.
