Rainbow Six Siege's Skull Rain Launches Today

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
Today is the day that players can start enjoying the Operation Skull Rain update for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. All players will have access to the new Favela map. Meanwhile, Season Pass holders also have access to two new BOPE operators: Caveira and Capitão. Caveira can sneak up on her targets undetected while using her Silent Step skill, before ruthlessly interrogating them. Capitão likes to be a bit more obvious; he has micro grenades and a tactical crossbow that is armed with lethal asphyxiating bolts.

On August 9th, non-Season Pass holders will then have access to the new operators too and those players will be able to unlock the characters using Renown or R6 credits. Check out some more gameplay of the operators and map in action.

The game's update also brought along a rather large list of fixes. As there is far too long a list to be included here, these fixes can be found on the game's website if you want a browse.
