Rainbow Six Siege operators: who to pick, which abilities are best

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is about to enter its fourth year of updates, which is just mind-boggling when you think about it. The game still has a huge player base and with the support that Ubisoft has given to it over the years, it seems like now is a good time to go over the 44 Operators that are currently in the game.

Steam Charts: The tail of the Winter Sale

Ho ho ho! John still hasn't returned after Christmas, missing presumed drowned in egg nog, so I'm filling in today. Valve have already blarbed about 2018's best-selling games so we're back on the weekly charts. Last week's top ten was largely familiar, though catching the tail end of the Steam Winter Sale has introduced a few surprises.

Rainbow Six Siege Maverick: what he can do and how to use him

Most breaching attackers in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege make a lot of noise, but Maverick takes a slightly more stealthy approach. His blowtorch can bore holes into just about anything, but its limited fuel capacity makes it tough to use right. This guide will go over how to use the blowtorch effectively, as well as the stats, weapons, and gadgets that Maverick has to offer.

Rainbow Six Siege exploit fills your eyes with garbage

A new Rainbow Six Siege exploit being abused by blaggards is like Rainbow Six Siege... on acid!!! The glitch, dubbed "Bird Box" by YouTuber "MicrowaveGaming" (a reference that will make more sense if you've seen that new Netflix film), fills the victim's screen with garbage jumbled polygons when they see it. There is a workaround to wipe your screen clean until Ubisoft hopefully fix this,…

Rainbow Six Siege Hereford Base map: how to defend, how to attack, tips and tricks

Introduced in Operation Grim Sky was the first of the reworked maps in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.

Rainbow Six Siege Fortress map: how to defend, how to attack, tips and tricks

With the final update of Year 3 of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Wind Bastion brings along the Fortress map. Set in a beautiful desert palace on a mountaintop, the map features multiple tiers, each one with delicate treasures and places to lounge around in, or even an infirmary with plenty of monitors surrounding it. It's very easy to get lost in Fortress, so this…

Rainbow Six Siege Nomad: what she can do and how to use her

Nomad introduces a tactic that's not widely used into Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - using proximity grenades to flush out enemies, either by running out of range or knocking them back. When used in tandem with breaching focused allies, it can make those allies deep in cover emerge briefly enough for you to quickly take them out. This guide will go over how to…

Rainbow Six Siege will keep skulls, slots, and neon boob after all

Ubisoft have decided to keep skull imagery, blood splats, gambling machines, and a neon breast in Rainbow Six Siege, three weeks after announcing plans to remove them to sanitise the game for launch in new Asian markets. Not everywhere is so keen on such things, y'know. Many players were unhappy with these cosmetic changes in maps and UI icons, I'm sure you can imagine. Ubisoft…

Rainbow Six Siege introduces long-range shoving with Operation Wind Bastion

Shoving people on their arse from long-distance is the superpower of one of the two new characters coming to Rainbow Six Siege with its next free update, and I cannot imagine a wizard more perfect for me. The other new wizard has the ability to electrify deployed wire, shields, and barricades, which is a nice bit of elemental magic but not as good as shoving.…

Rainbow Six Siege’s Moroccan kasbah looks too nice to shoot to pieces

Ubisoft Montreal have unveiled Rainbow Six Siege's next multiplayer map, first teased earlier this week. Out in the southern Moroccan hills lies a surprisingly scenic old fortress, used as a military training site, but I'm going to feel bad for rampaging through it guns blazing. There are high towers, sheer walls, lots of solid looking cover and far too much stained glass. It's an impressive…
