Rainbow Six Siege Snow Brawl Event Starts Tomorrow

Rainbow Six Siege is getting swept up in the holiday spirit, and the Operators are taking a break from intense, tactical firefights to engage in an intense, tactical snowball fight during the limited-time Snow Brawl event. It begins tomorrow, December 14, and runs through January 4, bringing a new capture-the-flag mode set on a redesigned Chalet map, as well as the Snow Brawl Collection with 45 wintry cosmetic items. And yes, you will be throwing snowballs.

In Siege’s take on capture the flag, Operators are armed with unlimited snowballs as their primary weapon, and the Snowblast Launcher (equipped with non-lethal air jabs) as their secondary. Three hits will down a player, at which point they will need to respawn to get back in the action. Operators must steal their opponents’ flag to score, and the team with the most points at the end of the 10-minute round wins. Boosts scattered around the map will augment players’ run speed, rate of fire, health, and –Snowblast Launcher ammo. Every match will pit The Blue Blades – Ash, Blackbeard, Buck, Montagne, and Osa – against The Orange Blizzard – Castle, Frost, Rook, Thorn, and Vigil.

To make the festive looks of this event part of your permanent Siege wardrobe, Snow Brawl Collection packs will unlock headgear, uniforms, weapon skins, and Operator card portraits. Unlock a free pack by logging in during the event, and earn more free packs by completing special event challenges. Packs will also be available for purchase using Renown or R6 Credits, and there will also be bundles to help ensure you can get the look you want.
