The new Coastline map featuring Operation Velvet Shell In Operation Velvet Shell, players will assume the role of two Spanish operators from the Grupo Especial de Operaciones and attempt to regain control of the Ibiza coastline using their unique tactical expertise:
- Mira has proven her strength and endurance in tactical situations, but her best asset is her technical expertise. Her specialty is creating Black Mirrors, nearly indestructible horizontal one-way windows that can be punched into barricades or destructible walls. Combined with the Vector 45 ACP and ITA12L as her primary weapons, enemies can rapidly go from “spotted” to “dead.”
- Jackal has developed his expertise in tracking down High Value Targets and intercepting narcotics shipments with the G.E.O.s. Equipped with the C7E and PDW9 as primary weapons, Jackal can also activate his Eyenox Model III headset to track enemy footprints. The more recent the prints, the “hotter” they’ll appear in Jackal’s view, so if you see bright red bootprints, there’s likely an enemy nearby!
Check out the Trailer:
“Mira (full name Elena Maria Alvarez), like Jackal, is a member of Spain’s GEO, or Grupo Especial de Operaciones. Raised by her single father from a young age, she took on the family trade of auto repair, before later finding her calling in the police force. She rose through the ranks and was accepted into the GEO.
For a primary weapon, Mira wields the Vector .45 ACP and the ITA12L. For secondary weapons, she chooses the ITA12S and USP 40. Like Jackal, her unique ability won’t be revealed until sometime this weekend at the Invitational.”
