Rainbow is Magic is bringing the unicorns, teddy bears, and whimsical sound effects back to Rainbow Six Siege tomorrow. The limited-time event returns for its third new incarnation and runs from March 29 through April 19. A new game mode, titled Bop the Teddy, challenges players to protect their friendly Mr. Bear while they try to eliminate the opposing team’s Mr. Bear. Operators are split into new archetypes with specific abilities and grenades and granted infinite respawns as they duke it out on an updated (and still comical) version of the Presidential Plane map. Log in during the event to claim one free Rainbow is Magic Collection Pack and complete weekly challenges to earn further free packs.
The assortment of new and returning Operators in this year’s Rainbow is Magic are classified into three archetypes.
Speedy: Remah Dash ability and Stun Teddy Bear grenade
Stronk: Shield and Smoke Teddy Bear grenade
Flexy: Adrenal Surge ability and Explosive Teddy Bear grenade
The Rainbow is Magic Collection offers new and returning cosmetic items to help you keep the magic alive all year round. In addition to earning free packs as mentioned above, players can also purchase packs with Renown or R6 credits, or buy bundles in the store for R6 credits; these include new bundles for newcomers Buck and Kaid, as well as new bundles for Rainbow is Magic veterans Sledge and Thatcher. Bundles are also available for Blackbeard, Smoke, Montagne, and Tachanka. And for those looking to spice up their drone aesthetics, an exclusive drone skin is available in the Signature Pack.
Play Rainbow is Magic now through April 19 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC, including on Ubisoft+. Read about Brava, the latest Operator to join the ranks of Rainbow Six Siege, in our Operation Commanding Force Operator and Gadget Guide.
