Consistent updates and new headhunting banners are the name of the game for every update in Arknights. The game always tries to offer a lucrative range of operators to players with its headhunting banners. With Chapter 11 update just right around the corner, YoStar Games has just announced a brand-new limited-time headhunting banner featuring Horn, Mudrock, Saileach, and Whisperain as the main operators. Let’s take a look at the skills and abilities of the featured operators being added to Arknights.

Her description reads the following – “After the end of the County Hillock incident, what had come of the warrior known as Horn was unknown to all. Much evidence would suggest that she was captured after the battle with Dublinn Lieutenant, Mandragora. Considering Mandragora’s cruel designs and reckless undertakings, save for Bagpipe, few believed that she still lived. The good news is, the Elite Operator, Misery, previously dispatched to Londinium, has indeed discovered Horn’s trails, and her current condition is much better than expected. Thereafter, Misery will assist Horn in making contact with our Londinium Special Operations Unit. As the commander of Victoria’s Tempest Platoon, 2nd Division, Horn not only poses great importance to Bagpipe, but may also prove to be key in forthcoming operations.”
