Amazon-owned live-streaming website, Twitch, has kicked off its third promotion for Rainbow Six Siege, with a fresh collection of free in-game loot up for grabs. Tied to its premium Twitch Prime subscription service, the partnership brings three installments of exclusive items across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Whether you're unsure about Twitch Prime or need help getting this limited-time loot, here's what you need to know.

What is Twitch Prime and how do I get it?

If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you already have Twitch Prime. In countries where Amazon Prime is available, the subscription is required to use Twitch Prime features. In 2019, the service is available in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Japan, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

If Amazon Prime isn't available in your region, an active Prime Video subscription grants access to Twitch Prime. This service is available worldwide, except for China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria. No matter how you approach the promotion, an Amazon subscription is required for the skins.

If you haven't yet linked your Amazon account and your Twitch account, you need to do that first. Head to the Twitch Prime homepage and follow the on-screen steps to complete this process.

If you don't yet have Amazon Prime, remember you can get a 30-day free trial.

The second Rainbow Six Siege Twitch Prime collection is comprised of a dozen exclusive cosmetic items, distributed in three fixed monthly installments. Spanning three playable Operators, uniforms, headgear, weapon skins, and weapon charms are available.

The Twitch Prime collection is split into monthly drops from January 23 through April 24, 2020. The exclusive items span Twitch and Maestro, blanketed with neon camouflage prints, and Mozzie receiving a pizza-themed makeover. Once redeemed, Twitch Prime loot appears in your in-game inventory, unlike the former "Twitch Prime Packs" used throughout the 2018 collection.

Kicking off the promotion, linking your Twitch Prime and Ubisoft accounts unlocks four items in-game. January's items for Twitch are now available, and additional items will appear in-game to complete the Twitch Prime set in February and March.

While the 30-day free trial unlocks four items today, you'll need an active subscription until March 2020 for the full set.
