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.

October 2020: Update for Rainbow Six: 3

Great new gear for singleplayer and multiplayer!


2020's Supply Drop game update is here! Including the new MP5-N as well as HD skyboxes, a ton of bugfixes, and more


To use for singleplayer, make sure you have the latest version of OpenRVS! (The AllR6 MP patch, which includes OpenRVS, is outdated - if you haven't grabbed v1.4 yet make sure you do so.) Download the singleplayer package, and copy the files according to the readme. To use for multiplayer, the server owner must first install the Improved Custom Guns Mod v1.4, then add the Optics mod and weapon packages that they desire. Clients should not install the multiplayer files; they will auto-download when connected to the server.


New additions and changes:

  • MP5-N - the classic R6 workhorse, updated for 2020
  • HD skyboxes - to replace the dated vanilla skies in classic maps
  • Dynamic hip position adjustment - a little bit of gun movement as you move
  • Angled RMR sight - add it alongside your main optic
  • Athena Sword and Iron Wrath campaign integration - now you can play any campaign you'd like, all within Supply Drop
  • FOV support - set your FOV within OpenRVS and it will now work in Supply Drop
  • Scope improvements - REAP-IR aspect ratio for 1080p gamers fixed, Vulcan effectiveness improved, and overall scope positioning tweaked for greater accuracy

Download Link for Singleplayer:

  • Full version (Note: Requires OpenRVS v1.4 or greater)

Hi,I'd appreciate it if anyone can help to explain (or maybe explore) a little bit about modding the "armor system." I've gone through the sourcecode 1.56, and didn't find any defined value related to light/medium/heavy armor. Some functions mentioned "bullettoarmormodifier", but there's no initial value to the modifier. I think it would be interesting if we can mod the armor system, like "light armor moves faster, heavy armor moves much slower but can sustain lots of AK bullets".

Lots of the armor stuff is handled in native code when the bullet hits a player. But you are perfectly able to make different things such as player speed, etc, dependant on the variable m_eArmorType in R6Pawn. You can also overwrite the function R6TakeDamage() in R6Pawn to make the different armor classes absorb more or less damage.

Next update when? Can you guys add Iron Wrath and Athena Sword weapons with ironsights? The G36C seems to be bugged as well as it uses an invisible charging handle after reloading from an empty mag.

The RvS 2.0 mod with ECT has them but uses default crosshairs and zooming. Would be nice to customize a Type 89.

Hi, I think there's a problem with the iron sigth from the mk18: when in use at the fisrt person, we can see a sight from another weapon.
(if i have a good memory, i think it's from MOHPA, the sight of the type 100).

Do you mean the model of the gun changes? Or you don't think the sights are accurate to the weapon? The sights I used for the MK18 were Magpul irons that you can buy and mount on any weapon with a rail.

I think i might konw why there's a problem: I'm currently using your excellent SP with RVS 2.0. Now iron sights were added to the guns. SO in fact when using your iron sight, the one from RVS 2.0 is added: it's not the one from MOHPA but from the M125S!
So what could be the fix?
Best regards
PS: do you have any SP in stock, just in case...

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.
