  • Rainbow Six Siege has introduced its newest limited-time skin range, dubbed the "Nighthaven R&D Collection."

Ubisoft has unveiled the "Nighthaven R&D Collection," its latest cosmetic skin set headed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The 18-piece range takes inspiration from the game's newly-featured Nighthaven private military organization, home to Operation Shifting Tides' Kali and Wamai, with a new high-tech look for six existing Operators.

The Nighthaven R&D Collection bundles 18 headgears, uniforms, and weapons across various Operators, each with a futuristic theme aligning with the mysterious firm. Dedicated skins dress Alibi, Fuze, IQ, Jackal, Mute, and Rook in tactical attire, draped in tones of black, gray, and blue. A handful of Operator weapons also receive skins, following a similar theme. We've wrapped up the full list of Nighthaven R&D Collection items below, alongside their associated rarity tiers.
