Rainbow Six Siege Goes Futuristic with MUTE Protocol Event

MUTE Protocol goes into effect tomorrow, kicking off a limited-time event that takes Rainbow Six Siege to the far future. Set above the clouds in a neon-soaked sci-fi reimagining of the Tower map, MUTE Protocol pits Operators against each other in a fight to control two areas, while taking advantage of a radical new movement mechanic that allows them to travel through drones and cameras. Select Operators are outfitted in robotic cosmetic items from the MUTE Protocol Collection, which will be available until August 17, when the event ends. Log in and play starting tomorrow to experience this high-tech take on Siege combat.

In MUTE Protocol, Mute has taken over the Tower and has sinister plans in store, so the Attacking team must attempt to reclaim control while the Defenders mobilize to secure their position. All Operators will be able to use the new movement mechanic, which digitizes their bodies whenever they use observation tools. Attackers will travel via drone and spawn wherever their drone is when they exit the drone view, while Defenders can travel through the camera network. This opens up a whole new world of movement possibilities, as drone holes become entry routes and cleverly placed bulletproof cameras allow Defenders to flank instantly.

In keeping with the futuristic theme, the MUTE Protocol Collection transforms Attackers Jackal, Lion, and Ying, and Defenders Kapkan, Mira, Mute, Oryx, and Vigil into shiny robotic combatants. While these Operators will automatically be dressed in robo-garb when you play MUTE Protocol, you can unlock these cosmetic items, as well as a special event weapon skin, to use in other modes by opening MUTE Protocol Collection packs. You’ll be able to earn a free MUTE Protocol Collection pack by completing a special Event Challenge, and packs will be available for purchase from the in-game shop with Renown or R6 Credits. Individual Operator outfits will also be available in bundles for R6 credits.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (including UPLAY+). To learn more about the latest Operators and gadgets added with Operation Steel Wave, and to keep up with the latest events and free weekends, bookmark our Rainbow Six Siege news hub.
