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 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…

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

Capitão's crossbow is getting a major change in Rainbow Six: Siege's latest update. As such, the developers feel that this is going back towards his original intention of an "area denial operator".

Rainbow Six Siege IQ: Y4S1.3 update – what she can do and how to use her

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,…

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

A lot of attacker operators in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege like to use explosives to get the job done, but GSG 9 operator Blitz prefers to blind his opponents. He's another defensive operator, similar to Montagne, meaning that he has a very limited arsenal to play with. A recent nerf has altered his shield ability slightly, so we've updated our guide accordingly. The first thing to know…

Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Burnt Horizon rappels down under today

Quite why anyone would do anything in the outback but stay in the shade and drink beer is beyond me, but it's today's new battlefield in Ubisoft squad shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Burnt Horizon adds a new map set out in a dusty desert service station, plus two role-reversing Australian gadgeteers added to the roster of playable operators. Attacker Gridlock can throw self-deploying patches of…
