Siege’s ranked mode is not for the faint of heart. However, if you do want to get your competitive spirit on in the game, we’ve got all the tips and guidance you need to grind the ranks in Rainbow Six Siege, from Copper all the way to Champion.

You can start playing Rainbow Six ranked once you hit level 50. Before then, you’ll have to grind it out in the quick match or newcomer queues.
Once you do reach ranked, you’ll be able to play in a longer “first-to-four” rounds format. If scores are all tied at 3-3 by the end of regulation, there’ll be a three-round overtime to determine the winner.
You’re allowed to pick the map you play on somewhat thanks to the map ban feature, and you can even take some of the stronger operators off the board with attacker and defender bans.

Currently, there are no plans to add any other ranked rewards, but we’ll keep you up to date if Ubisoft changes their mind.
It can be a pretty daunting experience jumping into Siege ranked for the first time. After all, it’s a complex game, and when the pressure’s on, it’s not for the faint of heart.
However, there are some things you can do that will help you learn the game and rank up quickly. Plus, as time goes on, you’ll become more comfortable.
- Play meta operators: Don’t know who to pick? You can follow our guide to the best attackers and defenders for Year 6.
- Be sure to review your gameplay: Not sure exactly how you lost? Want to look up that enemy strat? Match replay has been added and it’s very handy for just that.
- Play with friends: If you have people you play with regularly and have built some synergy with, you can stack together to make the most of it.
- Winning is all that matters: Don’t worry about farming kills, and don’t lament every death. Playing as a team will get you the win, and that’s all that matters for your MMR.
That’s all there is to the Rainbow Six ranked system. If you’re tired of just playing quick matches every day, this should hopefully inspire you to give ranked a crack — who knows, you might be the next Champion in waiting.
