Story: What’s going on in Rainbow Six Siege?

Rainbow Six Siege doesn’t have a campaign and solo play is limited to Situations and Lone Wolf Terrorist Hunt. These situations tie into the underlying ‘story’ of Siege, which is that this is all a training exercise between attacking and defending operators. There’s a loose story that permeates through the Situations, but they effectively act as offline training for the core online game.

Gameplay: What do you do in Rainbow Six Siege?

Rainbow Six Siege is primarily a team-centric, objective-based multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS). It’s also, technically, a ‘hero shooter’, in that the operators have individual abilities. Players can be killed for the round by a single headshot, or put into an incapacitated ‘down but not out’ (DBNO) state where they can be revived. Siege is separated into three modes:

Situations

Solo training to learn the basics. Article 5 is a matchmade co-op ‘conclusion’ to Siege’s loose story.

Multiplayer

Separated into Casual, Ranked and Custom Game. This is core Siege and pits teams of five against each other in alternating asymmetrical attacker/defender roles.

Terrorist Hunt

Available in Normal, Hard and Realistic difficulties. This can be played Lone Wolf, with your party or matchmade with random players (up to five total).

Modes: What modes are playable in Rainbow Six Siege?

Siege has three game modes, which are all based on team deathmatch principles. Every mode is separated into a Preparation Phase (attackers scout with drones, defenders barricade) and an Action Phase (objective-based FPS gameplay). Teams can always win by eliminating the other side. Defenders can win by playing the clock (if the attackers fail to complete their objective, defenders win). These are Siege’s three multiplayer modes:

Hostage

Attackers must breach and escort an AI-controlled hostage to safety. Defenders must stop this.

Secure Area

Defenders must stop attackers from holding a fixed area for a period of time. Defenders can pause a capture by standing in the same area.

Bomb

Attackers must plant a bomb defusal unit on one of two bomb sites. Defenders must stop them or destroy the defusal unit if it’s planted.

Maps: What maps are playable in Rainbow Six Siege?

Siege currently has 18 maps core playable maps, not including the three limited-time Outbreak maps:

  • House
  • Oregon
  • Hereford Base
  • Club House
  • Presidential Plane

Rainbow Six Siege operators

There are currently 38 playable operators in Siege, across attacking and defending teams. They have different loadout options, including a unique gadget.

Alternatively, Season Pass holders automatically unlock new operators two weeks prior to their availability (and keep them beyond that).
