Rainbow Six: Siege Wiki
Rainbow Six: Siege

Rainbow Six Siege is a team-based tactical shooter set in an indoor environment. It is a 5v5 asymmetrical confrontation, between Attackers and Defenders, that encompasses a battle between fortification and breaching.

Rainbow Six is an elite team composed of members of the best Special Forces units from around the globe:

  • The British SAS
  • The American SWAT
  • The French GIGN
  • The German GSG9
  • The Russian Spetsnaz

Trained to operate in tight formations in indoor environments, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults.

The Siege is a brand-new style of gameplay embracing the reality of counter-terrorist operatives across the world: intense and asymmetrical close-quarters combat between attackers and defenders.

  • As a defender, you will have the means to transform your environment into strongholds to prevent the attackers from breaching.
  • As an attacker, you will have many planning options to face this challenge and defuse these situations.

Game Concepts
The Siege
With the Siege as a gameplay concept in mind, both sides are given time and tools to prepare for the upcoming assault, leading to a tug-of-war between fortification and destruction.
Attackers observe, then assault a fortified position from one of several points of entry, with the goal of completing their objective.
Defenders fortify their objective location, then attempt to prevent the Attackers from completing their mission.

Match Flow
  • The two teams will get to alternate between attacking and defending. The team with the most points wins (best out of 5 rounds).

  • During the Planning Phase, Attackers will choose their Attacker Operators and select their loadouts.
  • In the Preparation Phase, Attackers will be scouting ahead with remote drones to assess the situation and recon valuable intel on the enemy’s position, the objective location, and established :*fortifications.
  • During the Action Phase, Attackers will attempt to complete their objective, before the time limit expires, or eliminate the enemy team.

  • During the Planning Phase, Defenders will choose their Defender Operators and select their loadouts.
  • In the Preparation Phase, Defenders get time to prepare for the upcoming assault: they can fortify the objective location and its perimeter, molding their environment to their advantage.
  • During the Action Phase, Defenders will fight to prevent objective completion or eliminate the incoming threat.

One life
  • No Respawns. Make sure that you make your life count. Make sure that your risks are calculated. This is applicable to all modes of Rainbow Six (PvP, PvE, and Situations).

Raise Your Clearance Level
  • Gain XP by playing the game. The more XP you gain, the higher your Clearance Level. Clearance Levels grant you access to more content.
Accumulate Renown
  • As you play the game, you will also gain Renown. You can use Renown to unlock Operators, and acquire attachments and weapon skins.
