You probably don't really equate spec ops with professional wrestling, but we live in a mash-up world. A perpetual mixtape of ideas and loves and desires to transmogrify disparate passions in ways that appeal to us, with a bit of bragging rights thrown in for good measure. And with that thinking, maybe it's not a stretch to think that a Rainbow Six Siege player might want to breach a room dressed in "The Man" Becky Lynch wares.


The Deadman Bundle for Blackbeard includes the Undertaker uniform, special headgear, Operator portrait, the Undertaker Championship charm, as well as the Moonlight Brawl background and The Tombstone weapon skin for the MK17 CQB.

An additional bundle for Thorn brings The Man uniform, headgear, and Operator portrait. Players can wear the WWE Championship Titles charm, the I Am The Man background and equip the Dis-Arm-Her weapon skin for the UZK50GI. Players can choose their champion by purchasing bundle for 2160 R6 Credits each or buy both together in the WWE Rumble Bundle for 4080 R6 Credits.
This mashup continues Ubisoft's penchant to Go-Go-Gadget Arms as many popular culture add-ons or teamups with its key franchises and, really, isn't a bad thing at all, no matter how bogan you might think it is ;).

Perhaps the biggest addition to Rainbow Six Siege in its forthcoming Year 7, Season 1 update is the inclusion of Team Deathmatch. And while the devs are quick to downplay the addition as more or a less an arcade-style mode designed to let players let their tactical hair down, there's no question competitive juices will quickly flow as this new mode works its gateway magic while quickly becoming a beast all unto itself.


In addition to the new game-mode, which has been designed as a way for people to get to grips with controls and abilities in a more open run-and-gun environment, we'll also see a new Operator in Japanese security services-inspired Azami. She comes with a game-changing throwable canister which creates a bulletproof foam patch over holes in the environment.

Here's some official intel:
In Demon Veil, uncover the secrets of Azami, an enigmatic new Defender – equipped with the Kiba Barrier gadget, her throwable canisters deploy an expandable material that solidifies into a bulletproof surface, providing fast cover. Azami’s gadget allows her to quickly repair holes in walls and floors, creating for a more mobile and versatile defensive approach. Azami is a medium speed, medium health Operator, and her loadout features a 9X19SVSN or an ACS12 as a primary weapon and a D-50 as a secondary weapon.

Alongside Azami, an exclusive new map arrives mid-season for the first time in Rainbow Six Siege in three years: Emerald Plains. Set in Ireland, this modern country club challenges players to master a new environment and its multiple levels.

Attacker Repick arrives in Year 7 Season 1, allowing Attackers to change their Operator and loadout during the Preparation Phase. The change aims to bring more impact during the Preparation Phase by allowing Attackers to use the intel gathered and adjust their strategy. In addition, the match header has been updated to help make informed decisions when changing their Operator or loadout. Attacker repick is available for all game modes in the Quick Match, Unranked, Ranked, and Pro League playlists.

Demon Veil brings further important gameplay updates: a permanent Team Deathmatch game mode, created to provide the perfect environment for players to warm up and practice their aim before competitive matches, as well as offer a more casual gameplay experience within Rainbow Six Siege; Match Replay for console players, a spectator mode that has been available on PC since 2020; Operator balancing updates for Goyo and Valkyrie; and an exclusive Elite skin for Nomad.

Y7S1 will also introduce a new Incentive Program: when players report issues on R6Fix and have their status reach ‘Under Investigation’, they will receive one reward per season, determined by the highest severity issue out of all their reports. Players on both the Test Server and the Live Server can report issues and have a chance to receive each season's reward during the following season's Test Server.
We unfortunately missed out on playing the new content due to life circumstances, but our colleagues seemed to dig it. We should also have a bit more on how Team Deathmatch plays out so stay tuned for that.

Ubisoft's now-forever IP, Rainbow Six Siege is in its sixth year. In fact, it's at the tail end of that year, and remains one of the most popular competitive shooters in its class thanks to a heady round of updates, tweaks, content drops and major beats like Season 4's High Calibre, which is what brings us here today.

And to put a finer point on it, we enlisted resident expert on all things corridor-peeking, Joaby, to run us through the new content.

Here's a snippet:
The new operator in High Calibre is Thorn, an Irish defender who brings with her a blade-based proximity mine and — bizarrely, to me — the first completely fictional weapon in the history of the game.

A member of Ireland's Emergency Response Unit, there's something pleasant about hearing Thorn's voicelines in her hushed Irish brogue. There aren't enough Irish accents in popular media in my opinion. "Sendin' out a shell" she declares as she deploys her Razorbloom Shell, a deadly proximity mine she can place practically anywhere...

The cats at Ubisoft working the Rainbow Six Siege angle ought to be taken out for lunch, at the very least. It's one thing to release an explosive title outright, and quite another to then maintain interest in that product should it be persistent and community-driven. But so far, creativity remains at an all-time high, and with Year 6 Season 3 and Crystal Guard just around the corner, we sent in Joaby to be eyes, ears and hands.

Here's a snippet from his takeaway with the latest in RB6 goodness:
Osa, the new operator coming in Crystal Guard, is a shield operator with a twist. Her bulletproof shield is see-through, for one, which increases peripheral vision beyond what other shield operators are burdened with. Think of it like a halfway point between Blackbeard's mounted rifle shield and the metal armour of a primary-weaponless Fuze.

And the second part to the Osa puzzle is that she can deploy her shield, much like a defender's deployable shield. That means placing it on the ground in front of her or attaching it to doors — and in Osa's case, she can even stick it to windows. In videos, they showed her rappelling to deploy them on windows while upside down, but every time I attempted to do this myself the sweaty spaghettis I was previewing the update with would run out and shoot me. Still, it's theoretically possible.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a new co-op PvE standalone release coming January 2022 (check out our full hands-on preview here), bringing Left 4 Dead style alien parasite horde action to the tactical world of Rainbow Six. And to celebrate the upcoming release Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege is getting a special PvP Containment event starting tomorrow.

Which sees the arrival of a new game mode called Nest Destruction set in "a reworked version of the Consulate map overruled by the Chimera Parasite".


This event offers a look into the world of Extraction in Rainbow Six Siege, with a team of REACT agents (attackers) intervening to destroy Nests that are being defended by a team of Proteans, a deadly Archæan variant that can adopt the form of REACT operators (defenders) and mimic their behaviour with maximum speed and melee attacks. Defenders will be provided with additional Health, Aruni’s Punch, and Oryx’s special abilities, but will be weaponless for the whole game. Attackers will have a standard loadout without modifiers and only have access to a reduced Operator selection.

Containment will introduce a new game mode, Nest Destruction, that will have players fight over a Nest. Attackers will be given a two-tiered objective: destroy the nest to open the final objective and win the round. On the other side, Defenders will have to rely on melee attacks and Oryx’s Ramah Dash to stop their opponents and claim victory.

It all sounds very cool, and if you're wondering why now - well, that comes down to Rainbow Six Extraction's original September release being pushed back to next year. The Containment event also sees the arrival of new headgear, uniforms, and weapon skins for all Operators via time-limited customisation items going up for sale.

Year six, eh Ubisoft? Not a bad milestone all thing's considered, but we do expect you to go all out given the numerical significance. So while old Crimson Heist is a solid start, consider this us putting you on notice.

Go big, or go home.

Or not. *Ahem*. Speaking of Crimson Heist, we had a chance to get some serious hands-on time with the upcoming content while also looking at some of the bigger changes coming to Rainbow Six Siege in 2021.

And it was operator Joabyjojo taking the reins on this one for us, so here's a snippet of his in-game comms:
Year 6 for Siege will see the implementation of a "Reputation System" which should hopefully lead to a more positive environment in the game. The System has been working for some time now, and will continue to gather data throughout Year 6 even before the Reputation feedback itself is implemented — this is how they're going to try to stop people from gaming it and circumventing their rulesets.

Toxic players will suffer consequences like Ranked matchmaking bans, voice chat bans and others, while good players can expect to see some rewards — although Ubisoft hasn't yet revealed what those rewards might be.

This is a good move, in my opinion, and something a lot of long-term competitive style games have eventually implemented. No player should have to put up with toxicity from their teammates or opponents, and if the only way to stop players from being toxic is consequences, then so be it.

GAME TRIVIA - Did You Know?

Internally during development of what would become Rainbow Six Siege, the project was actually dubbed "Rainbow Six Unbreakable" in reference to team bonding, but as the game's destructibility grew and grew, calling it Unbreakable became untenable, thus giving birth to Rainbow Six Siege.

Rainbow Six Siege on console has been given a massive performance bump if you're one of the lucky few playing on either the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. Essentially a new next-gen build and version of the popular competitive shooter from Ubisoft it now supports up to 4K and 120fps (with render scaling) on the latest consoles.

In addition to those fancy visuals full cross-gen support is available, though only within the "same family of consoles". It's a free upgrade too for those still playing with all progress carrying over to the next-gen build.

And in terms of actual game stuff Operation Neon Dawn, the final seasonal bit of goodness for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 of content is also available now. The update brings a new Operator in the form of Aruni and a rework of the Skyscraper map. A new Season also means a new Battle Pass too.

Here's a look at Aruni via a very cool new Neon Dawn animated short.



Here's the word on the map rework -- which sounds pretty substantial.
[The] Skyscraper map has been newly reworked with three major objectives. The first is driving Attackers inside by lowering the number of balconies and relocating them to remove some of the crossfire players could create previously from outside. An entirely new rotation between the two sides of the building on the second floor was also added. Lastly, the bombsites have been balanced to make them all more competitive.

With the new update Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is now playable and optimised for, well, everything.

One of the country's best, Joaby ran us through a massive update for Rainbow Six Siege that happens to have a character that rhymes with "I Am" in it, with his best Moe voice on display.

You'll get it when you read it.

Here's a peek around the corner:
"There's that one corner in Archives — just behind the shelving near the ledge window — where the Fuze grenades never seemed to get to, so you'd have three defenders clambering on top of each other all ready to spring out when the cluster finally finished. Peeking Attackers from the benchtop in Kitchen was always a dog move, but one of those things you had to do to help bambinos learn the ropes.
There's more where that comes from, you just need to click here.

Which is big news across a number of fronts, but could have those out there screaming for a new instalment in the long running Splinter Cell series more than just as a playable operative in Rainbow Six Siege just a bit miffed. But hey, maybe this exposess him to an all-new audience for something further down the track?



Here's the debriefing in full ahead of our own hands-on with the new content scheduled for tomorrow:
In Operation Shadow Legacy, players will be able to rediscover Sam Fisher as an Attacker named Zero, equipped with a new gadget, the Argus Launcher, a two-way drill camera. The cameras are launched to pierce soft or reinforced walls, windows, and hatches or stick to any surface. Once viewing the camera, the Attacker can rotate the camera’s vision to see the other side of the wall. Each camera is equipped with one lazer charge, usable to deal damages to Defenders or destroy gadgets. Sam Fisher is also coming with his unique weapon the SC3000K & melee weapon: the Karambit.

In addition to Sam Fisher, players will be able to explore a reimagined Chalet map, which has been newly reworked. The team has improved the first and the second floors, and the roof is now traversable, among other features. Objectives have been the main focus of this rework, with a hallway added to improve rotation in the Basement, and the Trophy site has been switched for a new one in Dining.

Alongside this new season, Ubisoft unveiled that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available to play for free from August 27th to September 4th, depending on the platform. Interested players can join the more than 60 million players in the Rainbow Six Siege community across all platforms, including immediate access to all maps, modes, and 20 legacy Operators.

Ahead of this free week, Ubisoft also announced the launch of SquadFinder, a mobile and desktop web application designed to help players match with teammates according to their language, playstyle, and overall game habits. SquadFinder is now available at http://rainbow6.com/squadfinder.

Additional game updates include the following:
  • Ping 2.0
  • Map Ban
  • New secondary gadget: the Hard Breach Charge
  • New Optics and Sights Colors
  • New Reinforcement Pool


The Test Server for Operation Shadow Legacy will go live on August 18th. The Test Server is an alternative version of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, allowing players to test upcoming gameplay features that will make their way into the main game itself. Since this is a testing environment, a consistent gameplay experience is not guaranteed on the Test Server. Players are invited to submit the issues they encounter on the Test Server on the R6 Fix platform: https://r6fix.ubi.com/. The Test Server is exclusive to Windows PC.
That's a lot to take in, and we'd have to assume legacy players are big Ubi franchise fans, so this feels like a massive win across the board. And as mentioned in the intro, who knows, maybe this is just the first major step in bringing Fisher back in standalone capacity down the track.

Watch a video for Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Shadow Legacy and all its moving parts embedded below, and stay tuned for our hands-on tomorrow.

The first season of Year 5 Rainbow Six Siege content is here with the arrival of Operation Void Edge - which sees the arrival of two new Operators, Iana and Oryx. Plus, a complete rework of the Oregon map that updates it look and layout to be more open and accessible.

But first, the new duo of Iana and Oryx.


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.

Owners of the Year 5 Pass have access to both of the new arrivals right now, with everyone else having to wait until March 17 to unlock them using Renown or R6 Credits. For more info on the Operation Void Edge update - head here.

With the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 wrapping up with its final season and the introduction of two new Operators. Kali and Wamai, an Attacker and Defender, from India and Kenya respectively. Kali comes equipped with a bolt-action sniper rifle - the CSRX 300 - that can penetrate and blow holes in breakable walls. As well as an entire team if you can line up the shot just right.

Wamai arrives with a new gadget,a megnet that can disrupt and put an end to certain grenade-powered plans.



Also coming is a reworked Theme Park map that looks to toss out the drab and poorly lit look of the original in favour of a new Chinese Castle theme that should prove to be more engaging.



Operation Shifting Tides will hit the Test Servers tomorrow.

The Halloween curse across gaming, especially the now ever-popular seasonal gaming, has begun, and today Ubisoft has kicked off its two-week run of Rainbow Six Siege: Doktor's Curse -- a twisted reimagining of the map "Theme Park".

Here's Ubi's official line on what you can expect with the Limited Timed Event:
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.

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.
Jump in now while you can, and enjoy a trailer for the new content embedded below.



The “Doktor’s Curse” Event includes the new Ubisoft Club Challenge that allows players to earn one of the 28 packs if they achieve 20 kills while playing the Doktor’s Curse map, and a second pack if they manage to win 13 rounds in the Doktor’s Curse playlist. In addition, any players that log-in between October 23rd and November 6th will receive one free pack. Players can also purchase the Doktor’s Curse pack for 300 R6 Credits or 12 500 Renown, with a 10% discount for Y4 Pass owners.<

Thanks to the new Outback map and two new Operators - Gridlock and Mozzie. Both of which are naturally home grown, with Gridlock being an attacker that can deploy clusters of spikes on the ground called Trax Stingers and Mozzie being a defender that uses a little gadget to hack and take over enemy drones.

Here's a closer look at the two new Operators.


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.

Both new Operators come alongside the new Outback map as part of Year 4 of Rainbow Six Siege content. All players will have immediate access to the new map, but the two Operators will need to be unlocked - or obtained via the Year 4 Pass.

In addition to the news that we're finally getting Aussie operators in Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft has proudly announced that their addition also comes packaged with a new map called "Outback" as part of Operation Burnt Horizon.

The full reveal for the new operation will take place at Six Invitational on February 17 (18 for us), but ahead of then here's what Ubisoft has teased about Outback, which is accompanied by a short video we've embedded below:
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.

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.
Anyway, thanks Ubisoft, it's about bloody time aye.

Instead we're getting two new Operators hailing from Morocco, as Ubisoft revealed recently in regards to new details surrounding Season 4 content for the popular team-based competitive shooter -- one Attacker and one Defender.

"Operation Wind Bastion" will also feature a new map "Fortress" which is also heavily tied to the new Operators.
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.

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.
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!

Where in addition to a rework of the Hereford Base map, two new game changing Operators also join the ranks - Maverick and Clash. And really though it's all about Maverick who has a high-tech melty-gun thing that can burn holes through just about any wall or barrier leading to some very cool opportunities.

Plus, the ability to create melty-hole art. Check it out.



On the other hand, Clash is a new defensive Operator that has a full body shield that can stun enemies in what looks to be fairly annoying if you're on the other end of her shield.

In addition to the new content the Year 3 update also brings the following changes and fixes.
  • Correction of the weapon sights misalignment that caused automatic weapon to diverge from where the reticle was positioned.
  • From now on if players are not able to select an Operator before the end of the selection phase, they will no longer be assigned Recruit, but will be assigned a random Operator from the list they have already unlocked.
  • 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.

  • Rainbow Six Siege is playable on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
