Dev Blog: How far will you go?

In Rainbow Six Extraction you will be faced with some difficult choices. You’ll need to think as tactically as possible if you want to get in and out of the Containment Zone. Today we will focus on one of the bigger choices you’ll need to make – when to extract your team from the Containment Zone.


R.E.A.C.T scientists are looking to learn as much about the Chimera threat as possible. That’s where you come in. You’ll enter the Containment Zones and complete objectives to help gather as much data as you can.

Each Containment Zone is sectioned off into three sub-maps that are sealed by airlocks. Each sub-map has its own objective that you can complete before moving on to the next area. As you progress through the areas, you’ll run into Archæan in increased numbers and difficulty.


The farther you decide to go into the Containment Zone, the more you’ll learn about the Archæans. You also run the risk of your Operators going MIA. Once cleared, the airlocks at the end of each sub-map will give you a space to weigh your options. You can either continue to the next section in hopes of learning more, or you can bank the knowledge you’ve received from completed objectives by heading to the Extraction Zone.


Before making the decision to move on or to extract, you’ll need to take a moment to think. Do you have enough supplies to take on a harder section? Are your teammates still in fighting condition? Did you lose a teammate in the previous section? These are all questions you’ll need to ask yourself and your teammates before moving on.

If your team is not completely ready for a bigger challenge, you may want to call for an extraction to keep what you’ve already earned. However, if you feel confident that your team is ready for the next sub-map, you may want to take on the risk in hopes of a bigger bounty. Just keep in mind if your team goes down, you will have to go back in there to save them.

So, the real question is, how far will you go? Let us know by getting involved in the conversation on Twitter, Instagram, Discord and Facebook.
