The Siege community has been up in arms recently, with everything from server troubles, to rampant cheating, and persistent tinkering of the game's Operators in a way that radically changes the meta.
It's all been a bit of a disaster for the game's developer, Ubisoft, but some goodwill could be coming their way with the release of a new event and game mode.

How to unlock the Grand Larceny cosmetics
There will be 31 cosmetics to unlock in the Grand Larceny event with uniforms for Amaru, Echo, Fuze, Gridlock, Hibana, Kaid, Maestro, Maverick and Warden with the most valuable being a Legendry outfit for Wumai.
There is also The Roaring Riches Bundle, containing the Deco Artistry weapon skin and Crafted Six charm giving your weapons a distinctly western feel.
Players can earn these event packs through playing The Grand Larceny playlist, or by buying them from the in-game shop for 12,500 renown (300 R6 Credits).
The Grand Larceny event runs from 5th-19th May.
