Rainbow Six Extraction – Video Starter Guide

The launch of Rainbow Six Extraction is imminent (January 20!), which means it’s high time you knew what you’re getting into. In the video series below, you’ll find explanations, insights, and tips on a host of game elements and mechanics, from how the Rainbow Six Siege Operators have been adapted for a PvE co-op setting to what each of your deadly Archaean enemies is going to try to do to you (and how to stop them). Check out each video below to be the most knowledgeable Operator on your squad and fast-track your progression to unlock new Operators, weapons, REACT tech, and more.

Operators, Gadgets, and Progression Explained

In this episode of our Rainbow Six Extraction Deep Dive series, we’re talkin’ Operators: who are they, what unique gadgets do they bring to the fight, and how do they go beyond what you can do in Siege? How do the weapons and REACT tech you choose change the way you play? And what kind of perks and upgrades can you unlock to make these Operators play in a whole new way?

Everything You Need to Know About Enemies & Tactics to Win

The enemies of Rainbow Six Extraction are a deadly threat, and if you and your squad hope to survive, then you need to know what you’re up against. In this episode of our Rainbow Six Extraction Deep Dive series, we’re talking tactics – what attacks and abilities the different Archaeans will throw at you, and what strategies you and the crew can use to take them down.

How The Maps, Missions, and Difficulty Settings Work

In Rainbow Six Extraction, your mission is to get in, get the job done, and get out. But no two missions are quite the same, and in this episode of our Rainbow Six Extraction Deep Dive series, we’re taking a look at how different maps and objectives combine to create a dizzying array of possibilities.

Ranked Mode Gameplay Explained

Maelstrom is Rainbow Six Extraction’s most challenging mode, a gauntlet that triples the number of objectives you’d normally run back-to-back and ratchets up the difficulty almost every step of the way. In this episode of our Rainbow Six Extraction Deep Dive series, we’re going to show you how it works.

Rainbow Six Extraction is launching on January 20 with a planned slate of free post-launch content. It will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-save, and will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Amazon Luna, Stadia, and the Ubisoft Store on PC, as well as via Ubisoft+.
