Rainbow Six Siege released a limited-time event called Grand Larceny this week. Gamers may want to join this shotgun frenzy event from May 5 to May 19.
Once again, Ubisoft surprises its fans with a limited-time game mode that could send gamers wanting more close-quarters combat action.
Grand Larceny: Early 20th century ‘Money Heist’ with shotguns
The game mode takes place in a modified map of Hereford wherein the game developers made a major engineering change — breakable walls and floors.
The developers recently released an emergency patch as well to address the rampant cheaters and other fixes in the game.
From the first impression of the trailer, the game mode, in terms of art style, is inspired by Britain in the early 20th century. The characters’ dress code for the occasion is also inspired by dapper gangsters of the 1920s.
Once the players log in to their Rainbow Six Siege client, they have a chance to participate in the limited-time event in order to earn special packs. They can earn these packs by completing Event Challenges or purchasing them using Renown or R6 Credits.
“Stolen Goods” game mechanics
In Rainbow Six Siege, the game mode is called “Stolen Goods” wherein the objective of the game is to either loot safeboxes if you’re the attacker or defend safeboxes if you’re the defender.
In terms of mechanics, it has a feel of Money Heist where players engage in a “cops and robbers” kind of play wherein there are two teams taking turns as attackers and defenders similar to the base game.
However, the difference of this game mode is that it is very fast-paced because there is no preparation phase and players go straight into battle. Game tacticians should thus be quick in thinking of strategies to beat their opponents.
Since the majority of the map’s main building is mostly destructible, players are given the liberty to get creative with how they want to beat their enemies.
If you’re playing as a defender, you might want to try changing the safeboxes’ locations by shooting the floor or ceiling for a position advantage to lure the attackers.
On the other hand, if you’re the attacker and you feel like you just want to go ballistic and just shoot whatever you see just like in Call of Duty, then this game mode might be for you.
Just make sure you don’t fall off the holes and avoid the receiving end of trash talks coming from the enemy team or even your own team.
This Rainbow Six Siege limited-time game mode should keep tactical first-person shooter (FPS) fans up on their feet as they take this opportunity to grind for loot.
