She was later invited to join Joint Task Force 2.[2]

Gameplay Description

A Medium Armored Operator, Frost comes equipped with her Sterling MK2 LHTs, mechanical traps that can be used to incapacitate enemies.

  • While an enemy Attacker is trapped, they are unable to move nor can they press on their wounds to slow down the bleed rate. Attempting to move will only cause the Attacker to thrash around.
  • An Attacker caught in the Trap can only be rescued by manually being revived.
  • Attackers who are usually able to revive on their own, such as Zofia, cannot do so while caught in the Welcome Mat.
  • Aside from when an Attacker is the last one alive, the Welcome Mat can only put them in a DBNO state, even if that Operator has already gone down once or more before.
  • If Attackers were already incapacitated when they trigger the Welcome Mat, they will be killed.
  • Compared to other gadgets, the Welcome Mat is fairly durable, being able to take a few gunshots before being destroyed.
  • Although melee will destroy it in one hit, it is not an advisable approach to destroy them this way given the nature of this gadget.
  • The Welcome Mat is a fairly durable gadget. Even it was damaged a little bit, it can be picked up and when placed back on the ground, it will have its "health pool" reset.
  • The Welcome Mat can be placed in most places on the floor, be it under a window or on the other side of a table, or even against the wall. Some tight spaces may or may not allow the Mat to be placed.

Synergies

  • Frost works well with Bandit, as the Welcome Mat is a mechanical gadget, meaning it cannot be destroyed nor affected by any electrified gadget. If an electrified set of Barbed Wire is placed on top of a Mat, any caught Attackers will die quickly.
  • Lesion is another Defender with a similar playstyle and gadget. If he is able to place his Gu Mine the right distance away from the trap, an incoming Attacker will get caught in the trap, with their leg triggering the Gu Mine, leading to a quick death.
  • However, if the Gu Mine is too close to the Mat, both will trigger at the same time, and the poison will not take effect.

Counters

  • Explosives can very easily destroy a Welcome Mat that's within their blast radius.
  • If swinging in from a window or vaulting over a Deployable Shield, an Attacker can quickly shoot a Welcome Mat with enough bullets to destroy it, preventing themselves from being trapped.
