A new limited-time event is coming to Rainbow Six Siege, called Snow Brawl.
From December 14 to January 4, Snow Brawl will be available for Rainbow Six Siege players, bringing a new, competitive twist to snowball fights. This winter-themed event is a capture the flag mode where players have to capture the opposing team's flag and bring it back to their own base to score a point.
Operators can stop each other with their main weapon: Snowballs. Every operator will have unlimited snowballs. Their secondary weapon will be the Snowblast Launcher.
How to play Snow Brawl in Rainbow Six Siege
Snow Brawl takes place on a wintery version of the Chalet map. Each team of operators will have their own base on opposite sides of the map. The bases will both have flags that the opposing team will attempt to capture.
Flags can be released by the player holding them. Flags will also be dropped if a player is taken down by a barrage of snowballs. Three hits will down a player, sending them to Respawn. A fallen flag can be returned to their proper base by picking them up.
There are actually boosts placed throughout the map. The available boosts include running speed, rate of fire, air jab ammo, and health packs.
Each time you bring an enemy flag to your own base, your team will score a point. Whatever team has the most points at the end of the 10-minute round wins. If there is a tie, overtime will begin. The first team to score a point in Sudden Death wins.
Which operators compete in Snow Brawl in R6?
In Snow Brawl, players can fight as The Blue Blades or The Orange Blizzard. Team Blue Blades includes Ash, Blackbeard, Buck, Montagne, and Osa. Team Orange Blizzard is comprised of Castle, Frost, Rook, Thorn, and Vigil.
