For reasons of National Security and currently active missions, Nøkk’s records are sealed at NATO Confidential security clearance, but her files have been released to Six. Nøkk enlisted at the Army NCO School in Sønderborg, then enrolled at the Royal Danish Military Academy where she graduated at the rank of First Lieutenant. With four deployments under her belt, Nøkk underwent additional special operations training, earning her Jægerkorpset maroon beret with skills in covert ops, combat search and rescue, direct action, special recon, arctic warfare, and advanced breaching. Nøkk served in Afghanistan and Iraq, often alone in deep undercover behind enemy lines. She received commendations for eliminating hostile insurgents in surgical strikes and was responsible for uncovering Erik “Maverick” Thorn’s location, forwarding that intel to the Unit.
Nøkk keeps her identity hidden from all but her fellow operators. NATO’s O&P division recommended Nøkk for Rainbow as one of its deep cover specialists.

WHEN TO USE?
ROUND STARTRecharge is fast; thus, HEL should be ready for usage when you need it inside the building. The advantage of using it from the round start is twofold.First, you can avoid being spotted on the default camera.Not a big deal, you might think. However, remember that the main advantage you can create with Nokk is an element of surprise.Once enemies know that attackers have Nokk, they will rely less on camera’s intel. As a result, your potential effectiveness with sneaking up on enemies will be lowered.
So put that damn thing on for few seconds until you shoot down the default camera.Secondly, defenders tend to use cameras for runouts and spawnpeeks. They may place a Valk camera outside that they are watching to catch you with your pants down. Nokk’s ability can help with that. Therefore, if you know that defenders have Valkyrie or that they are planning to spawnpeek (breaking barricades before the round start, etc.), then use HEL to your advantage.
BUILDING ENTRYSetting up an ambush on attackers at the potential entry point to the objective building is quite a common tactic of roamers in Rainbow Six Siege. Hence, I recommend that you turn HEL on when entering the building, especially if the entry point is close to the default camera.Please bear in mind that the suggestion to use HEL won’t prevent such an ambush entirely.It may merely help with denying intel gathered by defenders in case their ambush involves observing surveillance tools to time their flank correctly.
PASSING RISKY AREASSuch areas are parts of the map that are frequently occupied by defenders.This term can also be applied to areas of the map where you know the roamer was heading.
VULNERABLEIf you are about to drone or reload your gun, it is an excellent moment to use your HEL ability.Creating such a habit will help you with lowering the chances of your vulnerability being revealed to opponents who are potentially observing cams.
BEING SPOTTEDI don’t know about you, but I tend to forget about such a simple situation.When defenders spot you, that means they are actively using surveillance gadgets that can be impacted by HEL.Good teams, especially those in high ranks, will use spotting primarily in situations where they have someone on their team who can capitalize on the live ping – runout, flank wallbang, etc.Another reason for which you may be pinged is that defenders are trying to force you to shoot the camera — hence increasing odds of defenders who might be about to challenge you.Of course, nobody may jump on you. Even if that’s the case, it is better to develop habits effective against good teams, not bad ones.
PUSHING OBJECTIVEThere is no reason why you should not use HEL while pushing the objective site.Those are potentially the last moments of your round. You either kill the anchors or die tryin’.Lower the odds of being heard while moving or spotted – if defenders have surveillance gadgets present on the site.
WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND?
YOU’RE NOT INVISIBLEIt May sound like a no-brainer to some, but it is relatively easy to fall into the trap of feeling like a ghost with Nokk.Remember that only cams don’t see you. Players still can and will!
YOU’RE STILL AUDIBLESimilar to the above tip, keep in mind that just like Caveira in Silentstep, you can be heard!You are 2-speed operators with Nokk. Without HEL, you are just as audible as other players.
SYNC MOVEMENT WITH HELA good habit to develop is pausing your progress whenever you run out of HEL.If stopping for a recharge is not a viable option, then try to modify your movement speed at least to avoid creating much noise.Crouch-walking is a great way to move until HEL is fully recharged.
Her boost adds movement speed to already quite mobile Nook
His scans can help Nook with indicating the roamer’s position
- LIONEE-ONE-D freezes defenders for a short duration of time, during which Nook can push them aggressively. Though it requires good coordination to be effective.

Loadout guide -
Nokk R6 Siege
Hard Breach Charge
A charge that blows a medium-sized hole in reinforced surfaces.
A timed explosive device which kills or severely damages people within the explosion radius.
Loadout choices are an individual aspect, and rarely there is a “go-to” loadout in R6 Siege.
Sight choices are purely personal and depend on the player’s playstyle, map, even objective & specific role.
Please treat the below suggestion as what it is – our preferences.
We encourage you to experiment to find your setup.
Remember, just because something works for someone else, does not mean it has to and will work for you!
Why such loadout?
