New Rainbow Six: Siege season means new battle pass. The Tour De Force event has arrived, bringing with it dozens of rewards for players to earn just by playing Siege. We’ve got a full rundown of what you need to know about the latest pass.

Operation Steel Wave has hit Siege live servers after a few weeks on the TTS. Players are still getting the hang of Melusi, Ace, and how the new House rework fits into the scheme of things.

However, there’s still new content on the way. The Tour De Force battle pass has been added, so you can earn rewards just by playing the new content added in Year 5 Season 2.

If you want to learn more about the battle pass, we’ve compiled everything we know so far so you can make sure to get the most value out of it as possible.

What is the Tour De Force battle pass?

The Tour De Force battle pass is part of the Operation Steel Wave seasonal event for Rainbow Six Year 5 Season 2. You will be able to earn experience to count towards special rewards, including uniforms, weapon skins, Alpha Packs, and charms, just by playing Siege.

There is a new battle pass every season, and they usually run for about a month, so you have plenty of time to try and grind your way to the end.

How much will the Tour De Force battle pass cost?

There are two tracks to the Tour De Force battle pass ⁠— the free track and the premium track. The free track is as described: you won’t need to drop a single dime to progress through it. However, you’ll only get access to limited rewards.

The premium track is where all the goodies are at. At every pass level up from tier one to tier 45, you’ll get something to add to your collection. It’ll set you back 1200 R6 points ($10 USD) to pick it up, but you’ll earn back most of the cost throughout the pass.

If you choose to buy the premium track halfway through the event, you won’t need to start from scratch either. If you don’t know how much Siege you’ll be playing, but find yourself near the end of the pass, you can pick it up and get all those rewards retroactively.

On the premium track, you’ll earn rewards as you progress through every tier. Because there are more tiers in the Tour De Force pass, you’ll also earn more rewards than previous events.

However, on the free track, you’ll only earn rewards every few tiers or so. There are 13 rewards available on the free track, starting from tier two and finishing at tier 45. This is up from previous events however, which have typically only featured 10 rewards or so.

When will the Tour De Force pass expire in Rainbow Six?

The Tour De Force battle pass event will be running from June 29 to July 27, giving players four weeks to progress through all the tiers. If you are struggling to get through them all in time, there will be weekly missions for you to complete that give a handy chunk of experience.

Once July 27 comes around, the battle pass will be removed from the client, and you’ll no longer be able to progress or receive rewards.

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.
