Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is a popular online first-person shooter that is loved by many around the world. Ever since its popularity and success on PC and consoles, players have been wondering if the game will come to handheld devices like Nintendo Switch or not. The good news is that the game is finally making its way to mobile devices, and the game is called Rainbow Six Mobile.
Handheld devices are extremely popular nowadays thanks to the success of the Nintendo Switch and the latest handheld, Steam Deck. If you wanted to play Rainbow Six (R6) but couldn’t before, you’re in luck because we will show you everything you need to know about Rainbow Six Mobile.
Rainbow Six Mobile Closed Alpha: Everything You Need To Know
First of all, before we begin, let’s talk about the release date of the game. It will come out in late 2022 but there will be a Closed Alpha that will start on May 3rd. You can sign up for it by visiting the official website of Rainbow Six Mobile. If you are selected for the Closed Alpha, you will be able to play the game on May 3rd until the developers allot it. Plus, it is available on both Android and iOS.
The Closed Alpha of the game is available in the USA, Canada & Mexico regions. So, if you are in one of those regions, you can register for a chance to play the game. Plus, there is no NDA that you have to sign so if you are a content creator, you can share all of your gameplay and other information about the game without any worries.
Much like its counterpart, Rainbow Six Mobile features destructible environments. Players will be able to destroy walls, hatches, and barriers to their hearts’ content. This will allow you to siege defending players in various ways and force them to plan accordingly. It also means that more chaos will ensue due to the destructible environment.
On top of that, there are tons of returning weapons such as the Deployable Shield which is the defender’s best friend. Alongside that, the game will also feature a “Lean Slider” that will allow you to peak corners to see if it is safe to move forward or not.
Operators are the main part of Rainbow Six Siege. Due to that, Rainbow Six Mobile features 10 Operators as of right now but Ubisoft has promised that there will be a total of 16 in the Closed Alpha. If you want to know the list of Operators in the game, worry not because we’ve got you covered. Here are all the Operators coming to Rainbow Six Mobile:
|Operator||Primary Weapon||Secondary Weapon||Unique Ability||Gadget|
|Ash||R4-C – Assault Rifle||5.7 USG – Handgun||Breaching Rounds||Stun Grenades|
|Sledge||L85A2 – Assault Rifle||SMG-11 – Machine Pistol||Tactical Breaching Hammer||Frag Grenade|

Keep in mind that these are only the Operators available in the game right now. There will be more added soon and the list will increase as time goes on.
In the Closed Alpha, the game will feature two prominent maps – Bank and Border. As the game gets updated, there will be more maps added to it as well.
The Bank is located in the middle of a highly populated city, this heavily fortified bank will not be easy to infiltrate. Attackers will have difficulty finding the objective as the building is composed of several small and medium-sized rooms that can be easily reinforced by the Defenders.
Meanwhile, on the Border, you’ll feel isolated in this deadly outpost set at the border of two countries. Completely surrounded by deserted mountains, this map is composed of old and new buildings and is filled with open areas. Moving around will be dangerous and must be calculated carefully as it is one of the most open and destructible maps.
Can you Play Rainbow Six Siege on Mobile?
No, you cannot play Rainbow Six Siege on mobile – Android or iOS. Rainbow 6 Siege is a very popular first-person shooter for the PC and consoles, and the developers have no plans to bring the same experience to mobile devices. For a full on handheld gaming experience, Ubisoft will be bringing that with Rainbow Six Mobile.
Is Rainbow Six Coming to Mobile?
We had a number of questions whether Rainbow Six Siege or R6 Extraction will make it mobile devices, but instead as mentioned above, Rainbow Six Mobile is the next game from Ubisoft. It will be in early beta stages for a few months, and then we can expect a full global launch. Closed Alpha test will launch next week for a limited three countries i.e. US, Canada and Mexico.
