Rainbow Six Siege team DarkZero Esports announced the signing of Nick “njr” Rapier, one of the best rookies in the last competitive season.

He will be remembered by the fanbase for his help in getting DarkZero recognized in Rainbow Six Siege esports. To replace him, the org trusted njr for his drive in the game and discipline, which is rare at such a young age.

Right now, DarkZero holds the most promising underage talent in all of Rainbow Six Siege esports’ teams.
“Njr can take control of any match he plays in, led by his ability to make high-impact plays and the mentality of a world champion” stated DarkZero in its official blog post.
The American organization will gather talents to both mentor him and play at a high level, showing DarkZero’s rising ambition. This team hopes to overcome obstacles like Team SoloMid, who often stops their run.
Rookie of the Year
Previously, njr shone on the Disrupt Gaming roster, though they consistently placed at the bottom of every tournament. The lack of talent and an obvious roster instability held Disrupt back. However, the young rookie and his team finally overcome these expectations.
njr must face higher expectations with DarkZero’s Rainbow Six Siege team, with no excuses to back it up. He is now in a high-profile organization that wants to create a competitive environment and a dynasty. Fans should expect to see the new DarkZero roster for the North American LAN tournament on March 24, and the first performance of its youngster.
