Tom Clancys 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. Players also have access to a "Recruit" operator whose gear and gadgets can be customized. 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 from actions performed in-game. Each successive operator that is purchased from a single counter-terrorist unit costs an additional 500 Renown.
