It’s finally here ⁠— the absolutely ludicrous Pizza Party Mozzie uniform for Rainbow Six: Siege is now available as the last of the Twitch Prime drops for the tactical shooter, for now. Here’s how you can get it for free.

The Pizza Party Mozzie set isn’t something you’d typically associate with Rainbow Six. While fun uniforms, like the April Fools 2019 set, have featured in the game in the past, for the most part in-game cosmetics are pretty cut and dry.

However, because of that, it’s been a massive hit in the community. The Pizza Party set adds a bit of color to the game, and might even distract your enemies in a gunfight. If you were keen to get your hands on the skin, we’ve got a way you can get it for free, if you’re lucky.

How to unlock Pizza Party Mozzie for free using Twitch Prime

If you’re subscribed to Twitch Prime already, it’s super easy to claim your free Pizza Party Mozzie skin.

You just need to navigate to the Prime rewards page, and select the Rainbow Six offer. Click on the Mozzie skin, and it’ll be unlocked on the Uplay account linked to your Twitch account.

If you are unsure as to whether your Uplay account is linked to your Twitch one, you can check through the Connections tab in your Uplay settings. It will not show the connection through your Twitch one, so be mindful of this.

Also, make sure the right account is linked if you play on multiple platforms, as the offer can only be redeemed for one platform per account.

If you don’t have Twitch Prime, you can sign-up for a free trial if you haven’t in the past. You get a month’s access to the benefits program ⁠— which entitles you to plenty of rewards on top of free in-game content ⁠— before having to sign-up for $12.99 a month at the end.

The hefty price tag is because Amazon and Twitch were recently bundled together, so you get the benefits of both programs in one package.

This is only applicable to the United States. If you live internationally, Twitch Prime can still be purchased individually. Be sure to check when you sign up after you select your region.

While you are at it, be sure to capitalize on the other rewards available if you play more than just Siege. FIFA, Apex Legends, GTA, and more franchises have rewards linked with Twitch Prime, and you can claim as many as you want.

You’ll have until April 24 to claim the Pizza Party Mozzie skin. No more Rainbow Six rewards have been touted for future months, but we will keep you updated if a new bundle is introduced.

Rainbow 6 team admits to throwing match for better Major seed

The coach of Rainbow 6 Siege team CYCLOPS athlete gaming has admitted to throwing a competitive match to secure a better seed for the upcoming Six Major, sending the R6 community into frenzy.

With the Six Major coming up in November, the world’s best Rainbow Six Siege teams are looking to secure their spots in the tournament to compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This is especially important in the lead-up to the annual Six Invitational, which takes place each February and crowns the best team there is as world champions.

Now, though, over in the Asia-Pacific region, the coach of top team CYCLOPS athlete gaming has admitted to throwing one of their matches.

The CAG team might be punished after their coach as good as admitted to throwing a pro match.

Though his original tweet has now been deleted, head coach Hibiki ‘XQQ’ Motoyama let it be known that he and his team of top Japanese talent played poorly in their match against QConfirm, with the seeding system the reason.

With the way seeding works in the APAC League, teams earn points based on where they finish in the final standings, and CYCLOPS were looking to lock in as high a seed as possible — and by doing so, they couldn’t let Cloud9 overtake QConfirm in the standings.

For that reason, it seems XQQ and his team opted to throw their match against QConfirm, preventing Cloud9 from finishing above them and earning more points, hence keeping Cyclops’ higher seed.

Although the points system seems excessively convoluted, with fans calling it into question thanks to it allowing these kinds of matches to be thrown, CYCLOPS had obviously done the math and figured that their spot was safest with a loss.

The coach later Tweeted: “worst day of my competitive career so far,” and intimated that it would be his last ever match.

Perhaps, were it not for XQQ admitting to it so brazenly, the team may have gotten away with it. However, the Operator picks and style of play definitely made some viewers raise their eyebrows.

Despite no punishment being formally handed out yet, or any suggestion from Ubisoft and league operators on how they might treat this situation, it’s not looking great for XQQ and co. We’ll be sure to update this article as and when there are new developments.
