Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is a first-person tactical shooter, in which players take control of an operator from the Rainbow team, a counter-terrorist unit. Different operators have different nationalities, weapons, and gadgets.The game features an asymmetrical structure whereby the teams are not always balanced in their ability choices.
The Counter Terrorism Units (CTUs) available for play include FBI's Hostage Rescue Team, the British SAS, Germany's GSG-9, Russian Spetsnaz and France's GIGN, each of which has four operators per CTU. Canadian operators from Joint Task Force 2, two American operators from the US Navy SEALs, two Brazilian operators from BOPE, two Japanese operators from SAT, as well as two Spanish operators from GEO from the recent update of Velvet Shell are also available for play.
Players also have access to a "Recruit" operator who can choose from a more flexible assortment of equipment at the expense of having no unique gadget. Players pick an operator from any unit before a round starts, and are not allowed to change operators during a round. An in-game shop allows players to purchase operators using the in-game currency "Renown", which is earned at the end of matches from actions performed in-game. Each successive operator that is purchased from a single counter-terrorist unit costs an additional 500 Renown, with DLC operators costing 25,000 renown each.
