Rainbow Six Siege’s MUTE Protocol event is upon us, and with this comes the opportunity to earn MUTE Protocol packs to enhance the gaming experience.
The MUTE Protocol event runs from August 5 to August 17, and brings a neon-soaked sci-fi aesthetic to the game. A reworking of the classic Secure Area game mode, players will be able to morph at will around the Tower Map.
MUTE Protocol packs will drop special loot, including robotic skins for many of the game’s Operators and weapons. The only problem is actually getting hold of these packs.
How to get MUTE Protocol packs
If all is working as it should, the player should receive one free MUTE Protocol pack upon starting up Rainbow Six Siege during the event period. Another pack will be given upon completion of an event challenge within the game.
Beyond this, the player is expected to purchase additional packs for either 330 R6 credits or 12500 Renown. It’s possible to grind for this in-game currency, but the easiest solution, be design, is to pay real world money.
While this all seems straightforward, some players have been experiencing problems with even getting hold of their complimentary packs. Here’s what to do if the game doesn’t give them to you for free.
What to do if you don’t receive your free packs
According to an official tweet from developer Ubisoft, some players have been unable to claim their free MUTE Protocol packs due to a game bug.
This issue has now been resolved, and apparently, if you log back into the game you’ll receive your promised free packs.
Of course, two free MUTE Protocol packs won’t take long to open, and the event will be running for the next two weeks. If you’re looking to get your hands on more goodies, you’ve got a lot of gaming ahead of you.
