Rainbow Six Siege hosts an old west shootout for two weeks only

I may not be the most regular player of Rainbow Six Siege, but Ubisoft's twitchy team shooter always brings me back with its special events. Today's Showdown event is an old western three-on-three scenario set in an all new map, Fort Truth. Pump shotguns and magnum revolvers only, befitting the reskinned and old-timey operators. While not quite as ambitious as their alien mutant invasion event…

Steam Charts: The Worst Week Ever Edition

I'm declaring it: this is the Worst Week Ever for Steam Charts. And let's face it - this is entirely your fault. If you were a better person, you'd buy better games. But instead you buy the same eight bloody games every bloody week, and then buy a game that isn't even out for over a year. A YEAR! You are awful, and you do…

Every Google Stadia game confirmed at E3 2019

It's been just over a week since Google announced their big launch line-up of Stadia games, but with E3 2019 now drawing to a close that list has now become ever so slightly longer, with new tiles such as Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Legion, Square Enix's Marvel's Avengers and more joining the ranks. To help keep track of them all, here's a list of every Google…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Rainbow Six Quarantine will fight more alien mutants in co-op

Mutant alien beasties will return to trouble the Rainbow 6 gang in new three-player cooperative FPS Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine, Ubisoft announced today. The two tangled in R6 Siege's Outbreak event mode in 2018 and now "a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite" is back for a full-on rumble. Ubisoft are pretty vague about this for now, sitting firmly in the "teaser" stage…

Rainbow Six Siege now punishing team-killers with their own bullets

After a couple months of test-server experimentation, Ubisoft are rolling out their new team-killer punishment to Rainbow Six Siege proper. While the studio confirm that today's iteration of "Reverse Friendly Fire" (RFF) is still to be refined and has a couple bugs still to be hammered out, it's ready enough for the big leagues. In short, if you shoot a teammate, they can choose whether…

Has Rainbow Six Siege been improved by its updates — 2019 edition

Of course the Australian has his own spiders. New playable character Mozzie arrived into Rainbow Six Siege last month packing an Aussie accent and three “Pest” robots: little multi-limbed minibeasties capable of automatically leaping onto, and taking control of, the attacking team’s reconnaissance drones. Plop them down in doorways and vent exits, and there’s a good chance you’ll be able to blunt the opposing team’s…

Rainbow Six Siege operators: Y4S1.3 update – best operators for beginners, best attackers, best defenders

Rainbow Six Siege's latest update brings the long-awaited Lion rework, as well as some other balance changes that drastically shake up the meta for the game. So before then it's probably best to learn what each of the other operators does  when the update hits. They all have unique abilities, as well as their own gadgets and weapons. For those that are jumping back into…

Rainbow Six Siege Lion: Y4S1.3 update, what he can do and how to use him

Lion has gotten a major rework in the latest Rainbow Six Siege update, in that his EE-ONE-D drone is now completely different. Its aim is still to track enemies for all attackers, but there are changes to how it all works that you should probably be aware of. While his ability is pretty good in the right circumstances, Lion also has a rather decent selection…

Rainbow Six Siege Vigil: Y4S1.3 update – what he can do and how to use him

As one of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege's more stealthy operatives, Vigil aims to have as little footage of himself on cameras as is physically possible. He does this with a form of camouflage that makes him invisible to cameras and drones. A recent update has also given him immunity to a rather pesky operator. Vigil's cloaking device may be great for not being seen by cameras…

Rainbow Six Siege Nomad: Y4S1.3 update – 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. A recent update has tinkered with her loadout and AirJab launcher slightly, so we're updating our guide accordingly. Nomad has an obvious combination of attacks that she can use just on her own,…

Rainbow Six Siege Maestro: Y4S1.3 update – what he can do and how to use him

Maestro is one of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege's newer operatives and his ability makes him a huge pain to deal with. Not only are his cameras almost impossible to take out, they can pester you with little lasers. A recent update makes EMP effects a lot more useful against him, so we'll be going over those in a bit. To use Maestro well, you need to…

Rainbow Six Siege Echo: Y4S1.3 update – what he can do and how to use him

Echo is the only defender, outside of some shenanigans from Mozzie, that has a defensive drone. His one is special in that it can disorientate enemies, as well as leap onto ceilings. A recent update has given him something to think about, which we will detail in this new version of the guide. As an operator that controls a drone for the defensive team, Echo…

A recent update to IQ has increased her usefulness against a rather troublesome defender in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Attacker operatives like IQ that can detect enemy locations based on electronics usage can be vital to a team doing well. This GSG 9 operator has more primary weapons than her counterpart Blitz, but perhaps is one of the easier of the basic operators to understand,…
