Rainbow Six: Siege players will be able to get a free Maestro set in the leadup to Year 5 Season 1 as part of the latest set of Twitch Prime drops. Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

Twitch Prime is the Amazon-owned streaming service’s premium membership, entitling users to a free subscription to their favorite streamer every month among other goodies.

Twitch Prime users can claim rewards for various games across all platforms for no extra cost, making it a no-brainer to redeem as much as you can if you are subscribed to the service.

You can get a Prime-exclusive Maestro skin for free this month.

Every so often, the rewards on offer are switched up, with the latest set of goodies for Rainbow Six: Siege being released on February 24.

Users currently subscribed to Twitch Prime will be able to claim the Yellow Camo Maestro set, including headgear, uniform, weapon skin, and charm.

You just need to navigate to the Prime rewards page, and select the Rainbow Six offer to claim it. The skin will then be sent to the Uplay account linked.

If you are unsure whether your Uplay account is linked to your Twitch, you can check through the Connections tab in your Uplay account settings, not your Twitch one.

Getting a Prime subscription to get the rewards is super easy. If you haven’t used it before, you can get your first month free to access the Maestro set. However, if you need to renew your membership, you can do so for $12.99 a month, or $119 a year.

Twitch Prime was recently bundled into Amazon Prime, so your benefits for getting the monthly subscription extend past the streaming service.

A new skin is available every month, so be sure to check back soon.

There’s also currently rewards on offer for Call of Duty, League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Destiny 2, and more, so if any of those games take your fancy, be sure to get the maximum out of your subscription.

Twitch Prime rewards for Rainbow Six usually refresh every month. The next set expected to be a Pizza Party Mozzie skin, so be sure to keep your subscriptions active if that sounds up your alley.

Team Liquid suspend Rainbow Six coach Mav over abuse allegations

Team Liquid Rainbow Six coach Rafael ‘mav’ Loureiro Freitas has been suspended six months into his tenure over allegations of domestic violence. The former FaZe Clan star has denied the allegations, stating they aren’t “as pictured.”

Mav has been accused by his former partner of instigating domestic violence while they were in a relationship with the Rainbow Six coach.

‘SilverMistR6’, who has now locked her Twitter account, claimed that Mav slammed her against a wall in a bar after he got drunk one night while still on the FaZe Clan roster. Other users backed up her story with screenshots and videos.

The allegations caught wind on January 5, with Team Liquid suspending the coach within 24 hours.

“These are extremely concerning and serious allegations. We want to assure the community and those who raised these concerns that we are investigating thoroughly, and all work with Mav has been suspended until we complete our investigation,” the team said in a January 6 statement.

“After first learning of these incidents [on January 5], we immediately began conducting a formal review to determine the appropriate course of action. We’ll share an update as soon as the investigation is complete.”

Mav himself has denied some of the claims. While he admits he “was wrong to push [his partner],” he claims there’s more to the story.

“I said I was wrong to push my ex ⁠— you shouldn’t push anyone, period. It wasn’t as pictured, but of course I’ll always be canceled and have to read things like an abuser when I pushed her away,” he said on Twitter according to a translation.

Mav is one of numerous people within Brazilian esports to be swept up in sexual assault allegations over the last few days. CS:GO pro Lincoln ‘fnx’ Lau was accused of leaking a private video from Twitch streamer and host Renata ‘Elfa’ Schozen without her permission.

The two were in a relationship in 2019 when fnx recorded an intimate video of them, which he allegedly shared in a WhatsApp group without her consent. Three people told Schozen about the incident, and she has also threatened legal action.

Brazilian League of Legends caster Gabriel ‘MiT’ Souza was also dropped by Riot for the 2021 CBLoL Season after he was also accused of sexual assault by members of the community.

Team Liquid are expected to take part in the Six Invitational 2021. It’s unclear if Mav’s suspension will jeopardize his ability to travel to Europe to coach the squad.
