About the Operator
Hailing from the Royal Thai Police, Apha Tawanroong, aka Aruni is a defending operator. She joined the NIGHTHAVEN with Kali, Wamai, and Ace after her police career. Aruni is a two speed, tw0 armor operator. Her unique gadget is the Surya Laser Gate. This device can be latched onto a doorway, window, or even a wall. When attached, the gadget works like a laser gate that denies entry against attackers and even destroys projectiles that would otherwise pass through it. The Surya Gate is free from any form of damage; rather, it destroys any drone or object trying to pass through. If an attacker tries to go through the gate, then the gadget will deal 30 damage. Once either of these happens, the gate will deactivate for 30 seconds. In the meanwhile, the gate will charge itself to reactivate. Do note that defenders will have to shoot at the gadget to reactivate it once it stops sparking. Aruni also has a prosthetic left arm which she can utilize to create holes in soft walls and surfaces.

The main point to keep in mind when getting the best out of her gadget is remembering that it is an entry denial device. So, defenders should use it at the most common entry points for a site. Another pointer you can keep in mind is that you can in a way bandit trick with her Suria Gate.
