In Headshot mode, body shots do zero damage and players will need to aim for the head to defeat their opponents. The game mode will take place on Kafe Dostoyevsky, Border, House, and Favela. Two teams will spawn with a set of specific gear. Attackers will be team Silver, who will be equipped with breach charges and stun grenades, and team Gold will be on defence, which will have access to bulletproof cameras and barbed wire. The game mode does not have a preparation phase and reinforcements will be removed. Rainbow Six Siege’s Headshot mode will be available until July 20.
Ubisoft has recently revealed that Rainbow Six Siege will get crossplay and cross-progression in early 2022. The new features are already available on PC, Stadia, and Luna, and they will come to PlayStation and Xbox in early 2022.
Ubisoft has also announced Rainbow Six Extraction, a PvE game where Operators fight against an alien threat. Up to three players can team up to battle several deadly aliens in various rounds. After each round, players can choose whether they want to be extracted, which ends the game, or if they want to progress deeper into the map. Just like Rainbow Six Siege, players can choose unique operators with special powers to eliminate aliens. Rainbow Six Extraction is set to release on September 16.
