As part of it's festivities Ubisoft is offering a free operator to all players of the game. In the past you just had to login and collect the reward, this year it's little different though.
This year you will need to try out the limited time Legacy arcade mode to get the freebie, some users have reported that they received the freebie without playing the new mode.
The free operator will be a random one from the player's still to be unlocked section, and there's no restriction as to which year of updates they are from. If the player already owns all operators, they will instead receive an exclusive Ash Elf uniform and headgear combo instead.
The new Legacy Arcade mode is focused on taking players back to the game's roots, making available only the first 20 operators from the initial year alongside their legacy loadouts, including original scopes. The classic Plane, House, and Hereford Base are in rotation too, offering the standard 5v5 defuse mode.
The event will last until January 5, 2021, so anyone who's looking to grab a free operator (or the Ash skin) this season will need to jump in before that.
