Ubisoft is spicing things up by introducing a new playlist to Rainbow Six Siege that will bring the previous Arcade game mode into a new format.

The fan-favorite Golden Gun is returning, but with a twist. This time, players will be able to use their Golden Deagle in a Team Deathmatch format, so even if you die, you can swiftly respawn into action.

In this new playlist, you will find yourself playing on three maps with a dangerous weapon that requires you to make every shot count.


In this Arcade game mode, the action will take you around Coastline, Close Quarter and Neighborhood in a Team Deathmatch with a very special weapon: the Golden Gun. There are two things that make it very special. First, every bullet that finds its mark will instantly kill that Operator. Second, the gun only holds one bullet at a time, which means you must reload after every shot. Make every bullet count because you have no other weapons or gadgets at your disposal!

The list of Operators has been curated for the event due to changes in main weapon, secondary weapon and gadgets. Those participating will see their speed increased to the maximum rating, keeping things fast paced and action-packed!

During the Golden Gun Team Deathmatch, your goal is to be the first team to reach 75 kills! The same basic rules of Deathmatch still apply, such as number of rounds and respawn parameters, so get ready to feel your adrenalin pumping.


This golden weapon skin, called Extravagance, will be available to unlock for the D-50 with either 12500 Renown or 300 R6 Credits. However, you will need to snag it quickly because the D-50 skin will only be available for the duration of the Arcade game mode!

The new Golden Gun TDM mode will start today and will be available till July 5th.
