Rainbow Six Siege Rook: Q1 2019, what he can do and how to use him

Having an added layer of protection in cover is good and all, but in Rainbow Six Siege, you may want a defender that is immediately useful to the team by providing armour for them to wear.

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 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. Hereford Base was an old map and as such seemed a bit behind the times compared to the more elaborate maps that have been unveiled more recently. This guide will go over all of the changes that have been made to the new map, as well as point…

With the final update of Year 3 of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Wind Bastion brings along the Fortress map.

Rainbow Six Siege drops automatic bans in favour of human moderation

Players of esports darling Rainbow Six Siege can now swear to their hearts content, so long as they don't mind their messages being forwarded to a moderation team. In a small developer blog post today, Ubisoft announced that they were rolling back a potentially over-zealous automatic ban feature intended to curb community toxicity. As of today, messages that would have previously earned a player a…

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…

Rainbow Six Siege cuts skeletons and gambling in maps across all regions

I know October is over and we're meant to be taking down the decorations, but it feels a little excessive that Rainbow Six Siege is excising all skulls, blood and more from its maps. The bizarre cuts to the tactical team shooter are due to developers Ubisoft Montreal no longer wanting to juggle multiple regional versions of maps as they expand into Asian territories. The…

The 25 best multiplayer games on PC

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they're built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children. Internet strangers aren't always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can't. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most.

Hereford Base is getting a major rework, new operators Maverick (Attacker with a pinpoint blowtorch) and…
