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).

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.
