Masaru Enatsu grew up in Suginami City, Tokyo. This heavily populated city center is home to several animation studios and technology companies. At 16 years old, Enatsu was already challenging the robotics field by creating autonomous flying robots capable of search-and-rescue missions in highly difficult conditions.
Two years later, he won the International Aerial Robotics Competition and is known as having pushed the limits of what flying robots could accomplish.
Enatsu was noticed by the National Police Security Bureau during his studies in Science and Engineering at the Tokyo Metropolitan University. Enticed to test his devices on the field, he entered the National Police Academy. A year later, he joined the Tokyo Metropolitan, Police Department Special Unit.

What is the utility?
In this mode, the drone is vulnerable as it is visible to enemies and makes noise while moving.
How to use utility?
PROVIDING INTEL ON SITE
Yokai drones can be placed in strategically important areas on the objective site. Leaving drones on-site can benefit the team by giving information about the direction of the push and help teammates time plant denials and flanks for roamers.
DELAYING ATTACKERS’ PUSH
Doing so is risky as it may result in losing drone and not being able to provide further intel and deny plant when it matters the most.
There is a downside to such usage, though. Blasted attackers will expect a push from a defender. Therefore, if your teammate tries to sneak on attackers, then focus on providing them with intel rather than alarming attackers.
- scanned by IQ
- EMPed by Thatcher
- blasted with explosives
His greatest strength is being able to deny the defuser plant by blasting planter with the ultrasonic blast. Such denial can single-handedly clutch the round by denying plant once round timer expired.
- IQAble to see Yokai drones with an electronic scanner.
- Thatcher’s EMPDisables Yokai drones within the EMPs range, which makes them unusable for 5 seconds, dropping on the floor and being visible to attackers.
She’s able to counter Echo in the following ways since Y4S4.3 patch:
Echo is called now by the Logic bomb, his phone can be hacked to grant access to cameras/drones. On top of that, his Yokai drones are available to attackers after successful phone hacking by Dokkaebi.
- TwitchShock drones can “zap” Yokai drones destroying them just like other cameras.
- explosivesFrag grenades, breaching rounds or lifelines destroy Yokai drones placed withing their explosion radius.

Echo R6 Siege
A grenade exploding on impact.
Primarily used for opening holes in surfaces.
Razor wire that can be placed on flat surfaces, which slows down attackers movement speed and creates noise.
Loadout choices are an individual aspect, and rarely there is a “go-to” loadout in Rainbow Six 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!
