Rainbow Six 3: Gold is the best CQB tactical shooter in existence. As much a strategy game as a shooter. But its modding community is amazing and they have fixed and improved so many things about the game. Here is a guide on how to get the most out of it in single player.
If you want to play multiplayer, then install these mods on a second copy of the game. You can just copy the game’s installation folder somewhere and keep one of them unmodded for multiplayer, and one modded for single player. Yes, multiplayer is still alive thanks to the AllR6/Tactical-Gaming community.
|Mod Name / Hyperlink||Description|
|Guide for getting started||This step-by-step guide contains the vast majority of mods you’re going to need. Do exactly what it says, then proceed to the mods below.|
|Snake Camera v3||The snake cam is akin to SWAT’s optiwand; it is a tiny camera that allows you to see under doors.|
|Field of View Adjustment Addon||Changes the default FOV to 95 and provides a console command that lets you change it yourself in-game.|
|Bullets Through Walls Mod||Simple bullet penetration, not overdone.|
|Sound fix||Fixes flaws in the default sounds of Rainbow Six 3.|
|HD Skyboxes Pack for Supply Drop||HD skyboxes made for all vanilla maps, except for snowy ones, to be used with the Supply Drops mod only.|
|Particle Effects Mod V2||Enhanced particle effects, nothing mind blowing but a nice addition.|
|Twi’s Shader Preset||A ReShade preset for this game. I can’t get ReShade to even detect the game, but perhaps you’ll have better luck.|
|Updated mod files – Install this AFTER everything above||Basically loads the above mods correctly. Install this LAST, after installing everything above.|
|DSOAL||Converts the game’s sound to OpenAL, enabling advanced EAX effects and 3D HRTF. Read more about the installation here.|
