Rainbow Six Siege's Outbreak mode has five types of monsters

From Grunts to Smashers

Soon enough, it'll be a veritable monster mash in Rainbow Six Siege.

Ubisoft has been teasing the arrival of Outbreak, a limited-time cooperative mode pitting three operators against the infected in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. It's the kind of addition that, if done well, could round out Siege as an overall package and also spark interest among new players.

Outbreak starts March 6, but before then, here's a run-through of what we're up against:

Grunts are common hostiles that become highly resistant when the parasite detects an enemy presence. To protect its host, the parasite armors its body and becomes more resistant to bullet wounds. Caution and stealth is recommended.

Breachers are proximity bombs that crater anything in their path. They make for a very agile opponent, but they launch themselves into the fray and blow holes in indestructible walls. Make sure you are nowhere close to them.

Rooters are a rarer type of hostile. They send out coral spikes from the ground to injure and immobilize their targets. Rooters are always on the move and will keep you on edge. Beware when dealing them the final blow; they become extremely lethal when on the brink of death.

Smashers are not discreet. The parasite reinforces its body under a massively thick hide, making it practically impervious to bullet wounds. They will also tear down walls without suffering any injuries.

Apex is at the top of the hostile food chain. It sends waves of hostiles your way rather than attack you head-on. They can hurl blinding projectiles, which can only be countered by Finka and Doc. This opponent is a real test on your team’s communication skills.

Right before the event, Ubisoft will hold a free weekend promo for Siege. That's running from February 15 until February 18 on PC, February 19 on Xbox One, and February 20 on PlayStation 4.

As for Outbreak itself, it'll be playable from March 6 to April 3 for all players.
