Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Launches Christmas Event

by Robert Workman


Everyone is getting into the spirit this holiday season…even operators.

Ubisoft has announced a special holiday event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, one that awards players for meeting certain tasks within the game, through the offering of charms.

From now until January 3rd, players can take part in the Ubisoft Club’s challenges that pop up, offering a variety of charms as rewards for jumping in and working with your teammates to win the match. Though they’re cosmetic items in nature and not, say, weapons that can do you any good, they can help personalize your weapon line-up. These include charms like Sneaky and Tactical Santa, which you can show off to others before you blow them away.

Each of the challenges are only being offered for a few days, but fortunately we’ve gotten a hold of the full schedule, which tells you what you need to do with what weapon or mission in order to earn specific charms. Feel free to check out the details below:

Christmas Challenge

12/20 - 12/27

  • Challenges: Do 10 kills with gadgets/melee
  • Reward: Sneaky Santa Charm
  • Challenges: Do 20 kills with gadgets/melee
  • Reward: Tactical Santa Charm
  • Challenges: Do 30 kills with gadgets/melee

New Year's Eve Challenge

Rainbow Six Anniversary Challenges

  • Reward: Twitch's Shock Drone charm

12/27 - 1/3

There are quite a few good items to pick up over the course of the next couple of weeks, so after the holidays are over (or maybe before), get your friends together and see what you can rack up. Good luck, and try to go for the Shock Drone one, it’s pretty cool!

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
