The counter-terrorist unit, RAINBOW, is pitted against global terrorist organizations that in some cases have taken hostages & are said to have armed themselves with weapons of mass destruction. Rogue Spear focuses on realism, planning, strategy, and teamwork.

Rogue Spear: Urban Operations

Rogue Spear Mission Pack: Urban Operations, released on April 4, 2000, was the first expansion for Rogue Spear. It was developed and published by Red Storm Entertainment. It added eight new maps and five classic Rainbow Six maps from the original game, as well as three new weapons.

Urban Operations was re-released by KAMA Digital Entertainment in South Korea - this new edition included two exclusive missions and two new weapons.

Mod system

With the release of Urban Operations, a built-in mod system was added to manage user-made "mods" or modifications. Previous releases of the Rainbow Six series did not have this system, and using a mod required overwriting existing game content. With the mod system, mods could be used without overwriting, as they were installed into a separate folder within the installation and could be turned on or off. When a mod was activated, its content would take priority over the default game content. This allowed the addition and/or customization of all game content, allowing new operatives, weapons, maps, missions, etc. to be added.

Covert Ops Essentials

Rainbow Six: Covert Ops, is a stand-alone expansion pack of Rogue Spear. The training simulator was developed by Magic Lantern Playware, six of the levels were done by Zombie Studios and three of the levels were done by Red Storm Entertainment. It was published by Red Storm Entertainment. It was released on September 28, 2000.

Rogue Spear: Black Thorn

Rogue Spear: Black Thorn was developed by Red Storm Entertainment, published by Ubisoft, and released as a stand-alone add-on on December 15, 2001. Black Thorn featured nine new single-player maps.

Mission eight was edited in the US release (modified from an airport into a coach terminal) and a mission featuring an A380 aircraft was removed in all releases after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

This delayed the release. Six new multiplayer maps, 10 new weapons, and a new multiplayer variation on the "Lone Wolf" game type in which one player takes on everyone else; the winner of the round then becomes the new "Lone Wolf". The plot features a mentally disturbed ex-SAS operative challenging Team Rainbow with reenactments of real-life terrorist attacks, such as the Entebbe raid and the Japanese embassy hostage crisis.

I'm glad to announce a new release of Rainbow Six: Black Ops 2.0. First released in September 2021, the mod has received numerous upgrades and bug fixes since then, now culminating in this latest version.
The Rogue Spear community soon felt revived, and the mod got expanded even more on the multiplayer side of things whilst bug fixing and adding content.

Here below you'll find a comprehensive list of improvements and additions since the last 9/29/21 update:

  • Recompiled installer with x86 compression, now 32bit systems should be able to execute the installer.
  • Added "Ladder Uniforms" mod, which adds Blue versus Gold multiplayer uniforms based on the ones from Take Down.
  • Added "Take Down Training" mod, which replaces default Training maps of Rogue Spear with those of Take Down.
  • Added missing Take Down training maps to multiplayer (Adversarial) modes.
  • Added "RSMP03 Killhouse 2 Story" map to Adversarial with Terrorists and to Custom Mission (Terrorist Hunt and Lone Wolf).
  • Added two exclusive armpatches coming from Take Down, featuring the Korean Rainbow logo.
  • Added missing briefing audio and text from Anne Lang on Operation Winter Hawk.
  • Added Light, Medium and Heavy variants of the Hazmat suit, as needed in multiplayer.
  • Fixed some NPCs of Rogue Spear that were using the same textures of other NPCs from Take Down.
  • Fixed EW03 custom mission appearing in Assault instead of Hostage Rescue.
  • Fixed numerous Insertion Point text strings for many multiplayer maps, standardized names and fixed typos.
  • Fixed wrong Adversarial data on few multiplayer maps.
  • Fixed multiplayer .mis files for the CL12 map, wrongly referencing the CL04 directory.
  • Fixed mistake with victory conditions on Operation Winter Hawk.
  • Reworked light uniform textures and UI for Black, Blue, Grey and Stripe; added missing knee pads.
  • Reworked hi-res reticules data and few reticule textures.
  • Replaced M14 texture; by default it uses Urban Ops' wood stock skin, Rogue Spear's white one is an activable mod.
  • Other small improvements to text strings, character textures and UI textures.

Available Mods

Killhouse 2 Story for SP

Take Down Training Missions

TD Training Maps to MP

Restored Missing Briefing

Ladder Uniforms for MP

Ladder Uniforms In-game

Last but not least, check out videos of multiplayer gameplay as recorded by fellow 7ony aka InsaneRevolt. He's organizing weekly events through Discord, and so far we're gaining a good influx of die-hard fans of the Rogue Spear series.

If you have a previous version of the mod, you must remove it completely via uninstaller before installing this new one. Clean installation is mandatory.

Have fun and... how does John put it? "Watch your six."

No matter what I try to do I can't get this badboy running on windows 8, heck, I can't even get it to work past the main menu on an emulated XP machine.

Where is GoG and their magician skills at fixing old games when you need them...
