We finally get to play Sniper mode, which has been part of the PC versions of Rainbow Six since day one. Here, unsurprisingly, you get to step into Weber’s Teutonic size nines and offer squad support by squinting an eye down your telescopic lens and squeezing off caps from rooftops and moving helicopters. Despite having a slightly jittery targeting reticule that jumps around at the slightest nudge of the analogue stick, this is a slick new addition to the game that tips its baklava to Konami’s Silent Scope.
