Rainbow Six adds Golden Gun Arcade mode for limited-time

Starting March 19, Rainbow Six Siege has a new game mode: Golden Gun. The one shot, one kill mode is sure to provide a serious change of pace from what you’re used to, equipped with only a Desert Eagle.

The mode will only be available over the weekend, ending on March 23, so now is the time to jump in and give it a ‘shot’, before it goes for good.


First announced back at the Six Invitational, the Golden Gun mode is the first of many ‘Arcade Playlists’ planned for Siege over this season. The mode is available to all players, on all platforms at the same time.

The Golden Gun mode is the first added for the Arcade Playlist.

How does Golden Gun work?

It’s still 5v5, played in three-minute rounds of Secure Area on Oregon. Because it’s bound to get a bit hectic by design, there’s no prep phase.


You can pick from a selection of Operators, but regardless of your choice, everyone will be equipped with the gold-covered Deagle, pumping out one-hit kills.

Still not convinced? Check out some gameplay from mode, courtesy of IGN.

You can still use your specific Operator’s gadgetry and items, but of course, the playing field is leveled out by everyone rocking the powerful 50 cal. hand cannon.


The mode will be rotated out of the Arcade on March 23, though we’re not sure at exactly what time.

It’s also a good time to hop into Rainbow 6 this weekend specifically, because if you’re on PS4 or PC, Ubisoft is handing out 50% renown boost as compensation for the issues last weekend. It starts at 9AM EDT on March 20.

Once the Golden Gun mode is gone though, there will be more modes in the Arcade Playlist in the future – this is just a start.

Tachanka’s rework is coming to Rainbow Six very soon. After being revealed at the Six Invitational, Ubisoft is sharing more details with the playerbase very soon. We’ve got everything you need to know about the Tachanka rework presentation right here.

The Lord has arisen. Well, he’s about to, at least. Rainbow Six’s Tachanka is the first operator in line for a major rework in Ubisoft’s tactical shooter, and it’s right around the corner.


The cult hero’s overhaul was first revealed at the Six Invitational, to rapturous applause from the crowd. The turret wielding Russian might retain his legendary status, but picking him will no longer be a meme.

Ubisoft are set to drop more details about Tachanka’s rework very soon. In fact, it could be coming in just a matter of weeks, or even days, on Operation Shadow Legacy. Here’s what we know about the full reveal coming soon.


Rainbow Six Tachanka rework stream

It’s unclear if the Tachanka rework full reveal is going to be streamed on Twitch, or just be a video uploaded to Ubisoft’s accounts globally. However, we do have a set date for when you should expect more info: October 7.

The full reveal will go live on October 7 at 10am ET / 1pm ET / 6pm BST.

Tachanka rework details: new molotov gadget, more

Tachanka’s kit is heavily outdated in Rainbow Six. His static playstyle doesn’t fit with the dynamic of Siege. However, that’s all going to change when the Russian defender gets his rework.


We’ve already seen the major changes. Tachanka will now wield an incendiary grenade launcher instead of his turret. It’ll work similarly to Capitao’s bolts, helping lock down certain areas.

“The incendiary grenade launcher not only fits his theme of like World War II, old weapons, but also adds a real interest into his gameplay that’ll move him from being a meme character to a meta pick,” game director Leroy Athanassoff told Dexerto.

He will instead get his LMG as his primary weapon. It comes with supreme destructibility, with the ability to open up soft walls and hatches with ease. It also packs a decent punch, although the fire rate isn’t anything to write home about.


The Lord himself is set to get an Elite skin too. He’s ripped off his top ⁠— but kept the helmet on ⁠— as he marks a new era with a new look.

The Tachanka rework will likely arrive in Operation Shadow Legacy. However, a firm release date hasn’t been locked. We will keep you posted as new info arises.
