Rainbow Six Siege players have something new to tackle starting today, as Ubisoft has announced the Rainbow Six Siege new event “The Grand Larceny.” Beginning today until May 19, this limited time event mode brings an all-new game mode.
This event will last two weeks from May 5 until May 19. In this cracking 5-vs.-5 inspired by the British mob of the 1920s, gunshots ring through the hallways of the Headquarters. Most Operators will be unlocked to play in this event, with a few exceptions due to gameplay specificities: Glaz, Nomad, Buck, Montagne, Blitz, Caveira, Kali, Clash, Blackbeard, Lion, IQ, Tachanka, Recruit, Twitch and Mozzie won’t be available. Each Operator will only have a main shotgun equipped, customized with the event’s weapon skins as found in The Grand Larceny Collection and the Roaring Riches Bundle.
The Stolen Goods game mode is different from the standard ones. No Hostage, no Area to Secure, no Bombs to Defuse. No Preparation Phase, no Attacker’s drone. However, there are Safeboxes spread throughout the map. Defenders must protect these at all costs, but they can also win rounds by eliminating all their opponents. Attackers, on the other hand, must open a certain amount of Safeboxes, or eliminate all the Defenders. Players will be informed where the Safeboxes are located, alongside adjustments to flooring that will remove select metal beams after destruction, allowing players to be even more creative with their shotguns. Players must be prepared for an amount of destruction never seen in Rainbow Six Siege.
The Grand Larceny Collection will introduce 31 new items feautring customization for Amaru, Fuze, Gridlock, Hibana, Maverick, Echo, Maestro, Kaid, Wamai, and Warden. The Grand Larceny pack can be obtained by completing special event challenges (once per week) or by buying ’em for 300 R6 Credits or 12,500 Renown each.
