The tactical, tough team-based shooter Rainbow Six Siege has picked up a lot of traction in the past six months.

Cheaters are the bane of multiplayer games’ existence. Regrettably, however, some games go easier on them than others. For a while, Rainbow Six Siege was one of those games.
Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical team-based shooter where lone wolf tactics are often punishable by swift, well-deserved death. But what happens when all your teammates leave a match and you have no choice but to go it alone? For most, it’s certain doom. For one player, it was an opportunity.
Rainbow Six Siege just got a big update. 1.2 is not meant to fix all top issues, but it does improve hit registration (again), server tick rate, and matchmaking.

Rainbow Six Siege got its first big update. Hit registration is better. There’s also an auto-kick feature for team killers and an HD graphics pack for PC players. More divisive, meanwhile, are HUD changes that make casual and ranked modes similar. Ubi plans to add a third, less forgiving mode, Hardcore, next year.
Meet the person that has guns for hands and likes to clean trapped in Rainbow Six Siege. PC Gamer associate editor James Davenport decided to try and be a (peaceful) cleaner in Rainbow Six Siege. The resulting faux-interview with his character, Cleany Gunhands, is comedy gold.
In Rainbow Six Siege, the attacking team controls drones in addition to human operatives. But really, why use wimpy old human meatbags at all?
Rainbow Six Siege is out. As in, right now. I know, I was surprised too. But it’s actually a solid team-based shooter, and the ability to blow through walls and floors is a game-changer.
The new Rainbow Six is out. It’s supposedly equal parts destructive and tactical. Let’s find out if it’s any good.

It's always fun to see how trends wax and wane in video games. Almost every shooter that's come out in the past decade, for instance, has had to acknowledge the meteoric rise of Call of Duty and the fast-paced, twitchy sort of competitive gameplay it's popularized.
