Raven Shield is a tactical shooter with realistic properties. Raven Shield moved forwards, adapting various features absent in previous versions. These included the ability to see one's weapon while in first-person view, many new weapons and upgrades (including larger magazines and sights), and a redesigned multiplayer.
It is about an elite team called Rainbow Six specializing in anti-terrorist activities. They were deployed to counter a Neo-Facist groups bent on doing major attacks on South American oil interests and European financial institutions. The game features over 60 different weapons and gadgets, as well as different camos and uniforms. There are two official expansion packs, Athena Sword and Iron Wrath, as well as multiple user made expansions and multiplayer mods.

Athena Sword

Athena Sword is the first expansion for the PC version of Raven Shield. Athena Sword expands on the original by adding eight new missions, five new multiplayer missions, three new multiplayer gamemodes, and seven new weapons. Athena Sword was developed by Ubisoft-Milan and released on March 9, 2004. A Mac port was released on November 23, 2004. Athena Sword was packaged with the original game as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Gold Edition in 2004.

The story of Athena Sword begins in 2007, two years after last wave of terrorist attacks. Team Rainbow neutralized the terrorist threat and captured Gutierrez, but the threat is not over yet as there are still remnants of his terrorist group. The remaining cell still has some chemical weapons, making them a very dangerous threat.
When the terrorist cell strikes in the Castle in Milan and takes hostages Team Rainbow is immediately brought onto the scene to deal with the threat. The terrorist hunt is then continued along the Mediterranean coast. The last terrorist action is to be set in Athens, Greece, where the remaining terrorists plan to launch a chemical attack. Team Rainbow launches the operation Athena Sword and manages to prevent the attack.

Iron Wrath

Iron Wrath is the second expansion for the PC version of Raven Shield. It was in production for almost 2 years before Ubisoft decided to release it as a free download on June 9, 2005 to FilePlanet subscribers. Since the sites archival, its now available here: both in US version and UK versions. Developed by Ubisoft-Casablanca, this latest expansion features a 7-mission campaign, 3 classic missions, 8 new multiplayer maps, 6 new weapons, as well as 5 new multiplayer game modes. In October 2008, the CD-key activation server was taken offline, suspending the multiplayer features of Iron Wrath.

In preparation for the month of September, I've been hard at work with some new mods to liven up the Rainbow Six: 3 multiplayer experience. This includes new guns, optics, and gadgets!


Guns:

(All guns come with awesome 3D sights and a selection of custom camouflages.)

  • Remington Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR) - a well-balanced assault rifle in 556 NATO.
  • Remington Semi-Auto Sniper System (RSASS) - a highly-accurate sniper in 762 NATO.
  • Kriss Vector - a very quick submachine gun in 9mm.
  • Glock 18 - a machine pistol with a high rate of fire in 9mm. (For the month of September, the Glock 18 is exclusive to AllR6 donors, developers, and supporters, and it will be released for everyone in the upcoming October supply drop.)

Optics:

(Optics can be placed on any gun that could take a miniscope, as well as more! They can be used with a silencer at the same time. You can also customize your reticules.)

  • ACOG Scope - a highly-accurate 4x scope.
  • Eotech Holographic Sight - a quick sight for close-to-mid-range combat.
  • M68 Red Dot Sight - an extremely fast dot sight for close combat.

Items:

  • Flashlight - can be placed on primary or secondary weapon (or both at once). Great for blinding opponents in Adversarial modes.
  • Medical Kit - use to heal an injured teammate or yourself!
  • Proximity Mine - a re-release of an old favorite.

Just want to update everyone that, in light of UBI shutting down the online portion of this game, I am actively working on a solution to allow multiplayer without the need for CD keys or UBI logins. Will keep this community updated as we get nearer to September 24th.

This game is an absolute classic. The fact that it still has an online community after nearly ten years is a testament to the quality of gameplay. Whether you enjoy single-player missions, online cooperative terrorist hunt, or frantic deathmatch games, Raven Shield delivers. It's not the mindless on-rails gameplay of the Call of Duty series or the R6 Vegas games, where you are always forced down one narrow route; in Raven Shield your choices matter and strategy is of ultimate importance.
