Rainbow Six Siege is celebrating April-Fools day once again with the return of the Rainbow is Magic limited-time event, and just like the first time, it’s going to last a whole week.
Rainbow Six Siege players love a good limited-time event. However, it’s hard to find one more universally loved than Rainbow is Magic. It’s an April-Fools-themed event that first happened in April 2019.
Now, it’s finally happening again two years later, and it’s set to be bigger and better than the first. It takes place in the form of a new Arcade Mode and includes plenty of new bright and bubbly skins.
Here’s everything we know so far.

In the first Rainbow is Magic event, players battle against one another in Hostage mode on the Presidential Plane map. However, it was renamed Air Cute One and had a completely different look.
The original scenery was replaced with what looked like a child’s bedroom, and everything appeared to be part of a toy set. The hostage that needed to be rescued was Mr. Bear.
It looks like Ubisoft has something similar in mind for the event this time around, too. However, it’s noted to be an Arcade Mode.
Rainbow is Magic brings back some popular cosmetics and skins from the first iteration of the event. However, it also introduces plenty of new weapon skins too.

When does the Rainbow is Magic event end?
Rainbow is Magic starts on March 30 and lasts until April 5, which means players have a full week to take part in the fun and get their hands on all the skins.
The first time the event happened, it was so popular, it got extended by a week. So, there’s a chance that could happen again.
