"In a life threatening situation, the average person's heartbeat can be upwards of 175 beats per minute. A well trained tango is able to stay cool, keep calm. Their heart rates can be 70 to 100 beats per minute. But by the time I'm done, that number goes down to zero."

Jack "Pulse" Estrada is a Defending Operator featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.

Biography

Born to Cynthia Estrada and Mark Peterson on Seymore Johnson Air Force Base, Jack was raised as a military brat. Following his mother's footsteps, Pulse became an intelligence officer.[1]

Psychological Profile

As a result of the constant relocation from base to base, Jack was fascinated by the microscopic variances that comprise identity. He became adept at recognizing micro-expressions and delineating a person's history based on their speech patterns and physicality.[2]

Gameplay Description

A Light Armored Operator, Pulse comes equipped with his HB-5 Cardiac Sensor which detects the heartbeats of nearby enemies through obstacles.

  • The Heartbeat Sensor creates scan lines from left to right, highlighting Attacker hearts in proxmity (9 meters) every time the scan lines pass through them, even through walls.
  • The beeping sound that the Heartbeat Sensor emits gets louder as the proximity between Pulse and his target gets closer.

Counters

  • As an electronic gadget, the Heartbeat Sensor is susceptible to the same weaknesses as other gadgets of its type.
  • Thatcher's EMP Grenades will disable the Heartbeat Sensor for a substantial amount of time if they explode near Pulse.
  • Twitch's Shock Drone can also affect the Heartbeat Sensor if Pulse was shocked while using it.
  • IQ can detect Pulse when he is using the Heartbeat Sensor.

Heartbeat Sensor
HB-5 Cardiac Sensor

"Detects heartbeats at a short distance through obstacles."
— HB-5 Cardiac Sensor Description


While working in the FBI biometrics program, Jack developed a portable device capable of tracking a suspect’s blood flow and heartbeat. The portable cardiac sensor proved a useful non-invasive interrogation tool as the operator was able to monitor the stress level of suspects and reliably determine their truthfulness.

The sensor was then equipped with a higher resolution screen and programmed to determine the relative distance of targets. The modified Cardiac Sensor was successfully implemented into the FBI SWAT team’s surveillance counter-measures where sniper spotters and negotiators have effectively used the device to locate hostiles behind cover or from a secure location.
