Ready for some trick or treat? Ubisoft

Rainbow Six Siege is launching its Halloween event for Operation Shadow Legacy known as Sugar Fright. The event starts today, October 27, and runs through November 10. This limited-time event introduces a new mode which is called Candy War. What makes this new mode interesting is not only does it introduce a new map, but also has players respawn, a first for this game.

In this new mode, two teams of five face off against each other to collect 50 sweets within 10 minutes or less. Where do the sweets come from? Well, they’re dropped from player kills. That means teams can earn points by taking out the other team or picking up those dropped by their allies. The mode is played on a map called Neighborhood.

For this particular event as well, 10 Operators are going to get the nightmare treatment, bringing in fabric and stuffing. They are divided into two teams, which are:

  • Tricksters (Attackers)
    • IQ, the Ambitious Puppet
    • Zofia, the Untamed Puppet
    • Nomad, the Unwavering Puppet
    • Capitao, the Commanding Puppet
    • Thermite, the Trickster Puppet
  • Treaters (Defenders)
    • Frost, the Tireless Puppet
    • Pulse, the Wistful Puppet
    • Ela, the Impetuous Puppet
    • Castle, the Diplomatic Puppet
    • Goyo, the Unassuming Puppet

So what do players get for all their troubles? Well, everyone gets to receive a free Sugar Fright pack, which offers some of the 32 available items. There is even the chance to get the pack-exclusive seasonal weapon skin and charm.

As mentioned, the operators are getting a unique treatment and each of the 10 get a headgear, uniform and weapon skin. The items are available in Operators Bundles for 1,680 credits each, or in Sugar Fright Packs for 300 R6 Credits or 12,500 Renown.
