Rainbow Six Siege players call for classic CoD skin to be added

Rainbow Six Siege has a vast array of incredible skins and cosmetic items that makes every player unique – but now some have requested a very famous Call of Duty skin be added to the game, too.

Cosmetics are a huge part of most modern games, especially with games such as Fortnite adopting a free-to-play model that relied heavily on microtransactions to become profitable.

While Siege and Fortnite are worlds apart when it comes to gameplay, the cosmetics are equally as revered in each, and this idea to bring a classic CoD skin to Ubisoft’s popular FPS could prove a game-changer.

Operation Steel Wave arrives on June 8.

While a lot of Rainbow Six weapons have highly-regarded skins, such as the Royal or Luxury cosmetics, Call of Duty treats weapon skins slightly differently, offering them as rewards for levelling up or completing challenges.

Most Call of Duty titles now have a top-tier camo, which is unlocked for completing every camo challenge in the game – and now Rainbow Six Siege players want one of them.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4, the top-tier camouflage was called Dark Matter. It was a reactive camo of black and purple that using in-game would assure opponents that you were a serious player.

Now, r6universe has called for Dark Matter to come to Rainbow Six Siege, too, providing an example of how it would look, too.

Concept Dark Matter Skin! from r/Rainbow6

While Siege doesn’t have reactive camos, Dark Matter could work just fine as a static skin, too, as evidenced by the image provided.

Other users on Reddit loved the idea, too, calling it “epic” and saying how great it looks, and a number of them loved the throwback to the popular Call of Duty titles, perhaps reminiscing on the grinding needed to unlock said skin.

Whether this is something Ubisoft would be interested in doing isn’t known – Siege works very well on its own merit and the skins seem to be a perfect fit for the game, so whether they want to imitate one from a competing franchise is hard to tell.

Despite that, it looks good, and players of both games definitely wouldn’t be averse to seeing Dark Matter in Rainbow Six Siege.

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.
