Iana uses the Gemini Replicator, a remotely-controlled holographic copy of herself. When she deploys it, she can scout ahead with little to no consequences. It can move and produce sound like she would, but it cannot shoot, melee or use secondary gadgets. The Replicator has a time limit or can be exited at any time. The Replicator is all about fooling Iana’s opponents as well as collecting information. If the Gemini is spotted and destroyed by a Defender, it can help Iana deduce the threat’s location, but it will buy her opponents a few precious seconds to reposition.
Oryx’s signature move is the Remah Dash. Its speed allows him to roam efficiently and cover short distances with unprecedented swiftness and can also be used to knock down opponents. Oryx can also dash through breakable walls, creating a wide opening, though he loses health every time the Remah Dash is used for breaching. Additionally, Oryx has the unique ability to interact with broken hatches. He can climb straight through for a quick rotation, or he can hang on the edge to peek or wait for the perfect moment to go up. As long as he’s hanging, Oryx can also opt to drop down if the climb seems too dangerous.

In this exciting 5-vs.-5 Monster Hunt mode, players will have to choose between fighting or embracing the darkness. Exterminators: 5 Sledges wielding only 3 unique hammers as weapons and a selection of gadgets -- Eyenox Model III (Jackal), Heartbeat sensor (Pulse) and the EE-ONE-D (Lion) -- will face five Monsters: a cast composed of Lesion, Frost, Kapkan, Smoke, and Ela. The Monsters have no weapons but can use traps and have a unique ability created for this mode: they can turn momentarily invisible and run faster to escape. The Monster Hunters’ (Attackers) goal is to kill all monsters, while the Monsters (Defenders) try to survive the round.Jump in now while you can, and enjoy a trailer for the new content embedded below.
The Doktor’s Curse Collection will introduce brand new skins for five operators. Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, and Ela each get their own set of four items, as well as Doc and Bandit, for a total of 28 items. Additionally, classic 2018 Halloween skins are once again available for a limited time.
A farm girl from Central Queensland, Tori “Gridlock” Tallyo Fairous learned from an early age that the best way through any hardship is with the help of family. Years spent running the family cattle farm honed her natural leadership skills, but her preferred method for dealing with problems is to get stuck into them herself and to ignore the inevitable paperwork that piles up afterward. Suffice to say, taking on a more formal role as an officer in the SASR hasn’t been one of her top priorities, despite the many attempts made to promote her.
Max “Mozzie” Goose is her opposite. Affectionately known as a “show pony” there’s no mistaking when he walks into a room. He can talk for hours about the wild stunts he’s pulled… But at the end of the day it’s his exceptional work ethic and ability to integrate with any team – as well as his unnecessary yet spectacular derring-do – that made him a candidate for Rainbow.
Welcome to the Outback! Set in Australia’s Red Heart, this map is an homage to all the dusty service stations and motels that populate the forgotten highways of the continent, places filled with hardworking locals and specialty menu items you’ll find nowhere else.Anyway, thanks Ubisoft, it's about bloody time aye.
Unfortunately for this particular pit stop, a passing nuclear convoy came crashing to a halt while under attack, forcing locals and patrons to flee and causing Rainbow to be called in. As to what inspired the team when designing the game’s 21st map, Assistant Level Design Director Jacques Wong says they referred to two fan favourites – Oregon and Clubhouse.
“We divided the map into three distinct sections – the Garage, the Motel, and the Restaurant – and put a lot of effort into making sure each section is recognisable, even from far away,” Wong explained. “There are specific colours for each section, and we used lighting and geometry to direct the player’s gaze to where they need to go.”
Additionally, the focus was on returning to a style of gameplay that players have enjoyed in the past, while keeping the meta in mind. “We wanted to emphasise the impact of player decision-making, so for example, there’s a limited number of doors between each sections” Wong continued. “Roamers can still create new paths by destroying walls, and there’s always the option of changing floors as a flanking strategy. It’s a medium-sized map, so players won’t need to go far to find alternative routes.”
Meanwhile, the three sections are as unique inside as they are out. Get ready for rooms packed with souvenirs and cultural artifacts from many a roadside petrol station across the Great Southern Land. You might even run into our friendly resident mascot, Norman, in the restaurant, though we do ask that you try not to stare.
Additionally, the Volcano Signature weapon skin will be offered to those who purchase the Year 4 Pass before March 4th, 2019. As a reward for our players’ loyalty, owners of the Year 3 Pass will receive an additional 600 Rainbow Six credits when they purchase the Year 4 Pass.

Year Three Season Four features the GIGR (Groupe d'Intervention de La Gendarmerie Royale). We’re bringing forth a map that represents the pinnacle of military training facilities and we’re introducing two Operators from the Kingdom of Morocco.The larger question, of course, is when will we see Aussie Operators? I mean, our SAS is regarded as one of the most elite forces in the world, and there are a lot of Rainbow Six Siege players here in Oz. C'mon, Ubi, get this shit rolling!
For Operation Wind Bastion and following a written agreement with the resident Commander, Rainbow Six has secured permission to use the renowned fortress located in the Atlas Mountains. You’ll have the rare opportunity to test your skills inside a stunning mudbrick kasbah. Enjoy unprecedented roof access, but do try to stay focused despite the breathtaking oasis just next door.
The first Operator is a Defender and the Commander himself who is as stoic as the mountains are immovable. He is stationed at the country’s legendary kasbah, a training ground that has shocked and awed thousands of incoming soldiers. Strict and imposing, he inspires respect and has taken it upon himself to guide the future of Moroccan Special Forces.
The second Operator is an Attacker who travels wherever the wind takes her. She’s among the few explorers who can cross the Sahara, climb up the Alps, trek through Asia’s rainforests, march along the Arctic Circle…and still return to her unit in operational shape. Perceptive and resourceful, she’s an expert on environmental operations with a knack for pushing the enemy back.
Visit our Rainbow Six Twitch Channel on November 17th and 18th for the full reveal of Operation Wind Bastion during the Pro League Finals.
Correction of the weapon sights misalignment that caused automatic weapon to diverge from where the reticle was positioned.

Ability to mute the text or voice chat of each player individually. Hatch Reinforcements will now allow for partial destruction. Finally, in addition to gameplay and technical fixes, players can expect some map balancing adjustments on Consulate.
