"They said it could not be done. They said it was designed for tanks. They said I could not make it smaller and more accurate. They were wrong."
— Jäger



Marius "Jäger" Streicher (pronounced Yeager) is a Defending Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. A Light Armored Operator, Jäger's unique gadget is the ADS-MKIV "Magpie", where they can intercept live grenades before they detonate.


Raised by his uncle who was a mechanic for what later became the Bundespolizei (BPOL) Aviation Group after reunification, Streicher joined BPOL as a helicopter technician. He began designing defensive weapon systems, including a ground-based Active Defense System (ADS) prototype that caught the attention of the GSG 9. A veteran of the GSG 9 anti-piracy ops in the Indian Ocean, he was later recruited to Team Rainbow.[1]

Psychological Profile

Streicher is highly creative and curious, with a strong desire to serve. He has a tendency to lack humility. Though he has a remarkable affinity for complex machinery, he is not adept at reading social cues. Coupled with his boisterous tendencies he can be a bit abrasive.[2]

Gameplay Description

  • Jäger is a powerful Defense Operator that provides anti-grenade support to the Defending side by preventing them from detonating in the room.
  • The Defense Systems can be placed on either walls or floors.
  • Each Defense System can intercept up to two projectiles before shutting off for the remainder of the round. They will remain in place, but they will no longer flash red.
  • ADS only intercept projectiles that are in their detection range while also having a direct line of sight to them.
  • There is no delay between interceptions, meaning that one Active Defense System can simultaneously intercept two projectiles.
  • Multiple ADSs covering the same area will not be simultaneously triggered by the same projectile.
  • The following attacker projectiles can be intercepted by the ADS:

"Uses an Active Defense system to intercept grenades before they detonate."
— ADS-MKIV "Magpie" Description

Active defense systems have been successfully used on ships and tanks for the last decade to destroy incoming explosive projectiles. Typically weighing over a hundred kilograms, such systems have been unusable by troops who need systems that are portable or suited for rapid deployment. Using the most advanced military-grade components and material available, the "Magpie" blends the best miniaturization, defense and engineering technology.
