Ubisoft has finally released the brand-new Rainbow Six Siege Lab Test Server update, bringing the much-awaited TDM playlist and Attacker Repick feature.

As we have explained earlier, the Warmup Playlist’ will be a permanent Siege playlist with respawns enabled that players can hop into and leave anytime. The playlist will feature a Team Deathmatch game mode, where the team with the most eliminations will win. On the other hand, the Attacker Repick feature will allow players to change their picked operator during the preparation phase.

Alongside these changes, the Lab Test Server is also bringing some quality-of-life changes such as Castle now being able to place his barricades without removing the default wooden barricades first.
