Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak Packs: New Weapon Skins, Uniforms, And Cosmetics
By Chris Pereira | @TheSmokingManX and Oscar Dayus | @dayusz on
Rainbow Six Siege's new Operation Chimera update has arrived, bringing new Operators and the limited-time Outbreak mode to the game. It also features some other significant changes to the game, as well as the addition of a new type of loot box called an Outbreak pack that features exclusive weapon skins, uniforms, headgear, and charms.
In the images above, we've collected all 50 new items available through Outbreak packs. You'll receive four packs for free just by logging in during the Outbreak event. Beyond that, you'll have to purchase additional ones for 300 R6 Credits ($5 gets you 600 Credits); a few other newly added items are obtained through specific gameplay challenges. Until you've obtained everything available through Outbreak packs, you're guaranteed a new item each time you open one--there are no duplicates.
Operation Chimera is a major update for Siege, and its release marks the start of Year 3 for the game. Unlike a typical expansion, it features two Attacker Operators (Lion and Finka) and no new competitive multiplayer map. There are, however, three new maps designed specifically for Outbreak, which is a cooperative mode for up to three players. In it, you play as select Operators as you deal with a zombie-like virus that threatens to wipe out life near the US-Mexican border.
Both Outbreak and the Outbreak packs are only available for a limited time, running from now until April 3. It and the broader Chimera update are available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but be aware that it's encountered some launch issues, including those related to the free Ash Sidewinder Elite skin and the ability to view the collection screen, among other things.
