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.

A recent nerf has altered his shield ability slightly, so we've updated our guide accordingly. The first thing to know…

Ubisoft are changing how team-killing affects players in Rainbow Six Siege, with a new "reverse friendly fire" system rolling out on the test servers soon, described in this dev-blog post.

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.

Attacker Gridlock can throw self-deploying patches of…

Rainbow Six Siege Clash: Y4S1 2019 update, what she can do and how to use her

Clash represents the first of her kind in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, as she's the only defender that uses a shield.

Most breaching attackers in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege make a lot of noise, but Maverick takes a slightly more stealthy approach.
