Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (commonly called "Rainbow Six Siege") an online tactical first-person shooter. It was developed by Ubisoft and was first released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. A reboot of the franchise, Siege puts emphasis on the action with cooperation between players. Different game modes define different goals, some of which can be played solo.


Praised for its multiplayer, Rainbow Six Siege’s destructible environment (with a procedural system) is at its heart. Here, players form teams with different characters (“operators”) that have different abilities and equipment, which can result in asymmetrical structure. The goal is to imitate counter-terrorist operatives and the game is actually inspired by real-life sieges. In total, there are 25 units and 21 maps and each unit has 4 operators consisting of attackers and defenders. Since 2018 the game features loot boxes called Outbreak packs. The in-game currency called Renown can be used to purchase operators and different cosmetics in thein-game shop. Before the round starts, players can choose an operator, attachments to their weapons, and spawn points. The spawn points will define the points to launch an attack or to defend.

New players may also be interested in following some official guides on how to begin.

  • Modes: The game features five different modes, plus some additional limited time events (Outbreak, Arcade, other seasonal events). The modes include Hostage and Secure Area (both non-competitive multiplayer modes), Bomb and Tactical Realism (both competitive multiplayer modes), and Training Grounds (solo or multiplayer competitive mode). All the modes cover Player-versus-Environment (PvE) and Player-versus-Player(PvP).

  • Updates: Today, Rainbow Six Siege isn’t exactly the game it was back when it was released in 2015. Ubisoft added different post-launched updates and packages of free downloadable content that helped the game to be as we know it today.

  • Esports: The partnership with ELS gave Rainbow Six Siege the possibility to become an esports game. Today, the game counts over 70 million registered players (all platforms included).

  • Crossover: To expand even further the experience, operators made appearances in DLC missions of Ghost Recon, which is also a Clancy series.
