"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 walls or floors, so make sure to place them according to your needs: on a wall, it provides better support by having a clear view, but the chance of the "Magpie" being disabled by the enemies is increased.
  • It's always a good idea, however, to place them on a wall, next to a door frame to prevent any projectiles from entering the room or to place them right next to a jamming device in order to protect them from remote detonated devices.
  • Each Defense System can intercept up to two projectiles before shutting off for the remainder of the round. They will still, however, remain in place but 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 ADS can simultaneously intercept two projectiles.
  • Multiple ADS covering the same area will not be simultaneously triggered by the same projectile.
  • The Attacking side can lose the round if they kill the hostage. It may be to your advantage to leave the hostage vulnerable to grenade attacks, rather than deploy one of your Defense Systems near the objective.
  • 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.
