Today, Ubisoft announced the limited-time event, M.U.T.E. Protocol: Flesh and Metal, is available tomorrow in Rainbow Six Siege. Running for three weeks until August 23, this reloaded M.U.T.E. Protocol event includes new cosmetics and a new gameplay mode: Arms Race.
In this new mode, M.U.T.E. Tower has been taken over by the Brain. If players eliminate an opposing player, they upgrade to a new weapon tier. Eliminated players quickly respawn, regress one weapon tier back, and return to the battlefield. The main objective is to reach the highest weapon tier: The Golden Hammer. Using this Golden Hammer, players win a round by smashing the Brain’s shields on the map, as it is the only weapon that can properly shut the shields down and win a round. Additionally, there are powerups scattered across the map and all players are equipped with a Power Dash that can barge through walls.
The event brings with it the M.U.T.E. Protocol Collection, featuring the brand-new Organics skins. The Collection features uniforms, headgears, weapon skins and Operator Card Portraits. Additionally, the event also introduces the Merging Process Bundle, which contains a signature weapon skin, a universal attachment skin, a charm, and Operator Card Background. Bundles from the first M.U.T.E. Protocol event in 2020 are also available for players to purchase before it leaves the store again. Additionally, players who purchased one or multiple bundles from the 2020 M.U.T.E Protocol event are granted a free corresponding Operator Card for each bundle.
Flesh and Metal packs can be obtained by completing the Special Event Challenges, or by purchasing them for 300 R6 Credits or 12500 Renown each. The individual Bundles may also be bought directly for 1680 R6 Credits each.
