Rainbow Six Wiki

Golden Gun is a limited-time gamemode introduced to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege in the Operation Void Edge expansion. Playable in the Arcade playlist, the mode is available periodically for a span of four days.


The mode is a variant of Secure Area. The gamemode does not have a planning phase as the Attackers already know the whereabouts of the objective. Each player only has access to a D-50 adorned with the golden Extravagance weapon skin. The weapon is a one-hit kill to all players but will need to be reloaded after every shot. Knifing is possible which can make up a missed shot or close combat. Rounds are won once all players on the opposing team have been eliminated or the area is secured.[1]

The second incarnation of the mode banned the use of the Deployable Shield. As a result, all defending Operators are given a temporary alternative such as the Bulletproof Camera or Nitro Cell.


The mode is available several times throughout the year for a span of four days once activated.
