The Rainbow Six Extraction operators are just as important in this co-op alien shooter as they are in Rainbow Six Siege, the PvP counterpart. Rainbow Six Extraction has a myriad of changes from the popular PvP shooter, switching out tense 5v5 encounters for scours of aliens. However, one major overlap between the two is the operators which appear in both games. Not every operator from Siege however, so we've got a list breaking down each of the Rainbow Six Extraction operators that have been revealed so far.

Rainbow Six Siege has a total of 62 operators (and counting), but there will only be 18 Rainbow Six Extraction operators. This is supposedly because a lot of the abilities that each unique operator would not necessarily translate to an alien infiltration mission.

To be fair, we can't imagine operators like Mira being entirely useful just yet. However, like Siege which has steadily built up to that number after six years, we suspect more operators will join the fight as Rainbow Six Extraction launches into its post-launch support era.

Rainbow Six Extraction operators will be launched into the wild for the second time when the game launches on Jan 20 - see our guide on Rainbow Six Extraction Game Pass to see if Xbox subscribers can pick it up for free. However, which operators from Siege will actually show up to take out some aliens? We've got a full list of all operators available to play on day one: 

  • Alibi
  • Capitão
  • Doc
  • Ela
  • Finka
  • Fuze
  • Gridlock
  • Habana
  • IQ
  • Jager
  • Lion
  • Nomad
  • Pulse
  • Rook
  • Sledge
  • Smoke
  • Tachanka
  • Vigil

These Rainbow Six Extraction operators were added to Siege between its launch and its fourth year of content. No operators from year five or six have been announced to join Extraction as of yet. 

Rainbow Six Extraction Operators: Unlocking Operators On Siege

Since the two games share characters, do Rainbow Six Extraction operators carry over to Siege? Anyone that has played Siege will know that you have to unlock its operators through either purchasing R6 credits, or earning renown by playing a tonne of the actual game.

However, since Extraction implements a levelling system all of its operators are unlocked from the very beginning. In a nice surprise, Ubisoft has announced that if you own both Siege and Extraction playing the latter will gift you with the United Front Bundle which will unlock all 18 Rainbow Six Extraction operators in Siege as well. 

That's everything you need to know about the Rainbow Six Extraction operators. Check out our Rainbow Six Extraction co-op guide to see how you can build the perfect alien-killing team.
