Monika "IQ" Weiss is an Attacking Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. A Light Armored Operator, IQ's unique gadget is the RED Mk III "Spectre", which can locate any electronic device in the immediate vicinity.


Weiss developed a knack for electrical engineering early in life. At sixteen, she completed her first internship with a local tech company. She would continue her education at MIT and Caltech in the United States. After university, she traveled for a year before dedicating her life to a new challenge, the Bundespolizei (BPOL). Weiss thrived in her new environment and after two years with the BPOL, she was recruited by GSG-9. A brilliant overachiever and a fast learner, Monika Weiss is a natural at almost everything she tries. With an Ivy League education in electrical engineering and service in GSG-9's technical testing and airborne units, she uses a device which detects electronic traps and gadgets at a distance.

Psychological Profile

A brilliant overachiever and fast learner, Weiss has been successful at nearly everything she tries. This facility, however, has conditioned her to refuse failure as an acceptable outcome. This can be manifest as borderline obsessive behavior when tackling obstacles that are perceived to be difficult or exceptionally challenging.

Gameplay Description

  • IQ can detect any electronics, meaning she can easily avoid enemy traps. Since she can also carry a handgun while manipulating the RED Mk III “Spectre”, it is a good idea to shoot any devices that appear on. Pay attention, though, as some friendly devices like breach charges or drones can also be seen.
  • IQ's gadget is very useful for disabling Signal Disruptors through barricades in order to let your teammates place breach charges freely. The "Spectre" can also detect gadgets like Pulse's Cardiac Sensor, use it to avoid being surprised.
  • IQ's electronic scanner provides limited vision in smoke, only able to identify silhouettes of the environment and enemies.
  • IQ's electronic scanner has been modified so that instead of a black blue screen with electronic items circled, it has a clear screen that lets her see the world as if she's only looking through glass. It still shows her any electronic items within 20 meters of her.

Loadout Description

The advent of complex electronics on battlefields has created a pressing need for more advanced types of portable, ground-based sensors. Inspired by Forward Looking Infrared technology, the RED Mk III “Spectre” displays any active electronic components in the immediate vicinity of the user, from IEDs to various types of specialized military gear.

Weiss designed the prototype for the RED Mk I while a Ph.D. candidate at CalTech. She has maintained a firm hand in monitoring the subsequent models of the device, as dictated in her licensing agreement with the manufacturer.
