Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has secured its third full-fledged Battle Pass, Tour De Force, accompanying the Operation Void Edge season. Ubisoft's tiered progression system packs all-new challenges to conquer while serving up over 50 exclusive rewards. And whether on Free or Premium Battle Pass tracks, you'll need to work hard to complete the limited-time set.
But with 45 tiers to tackle, and just one month to earn, efficiency is essential. We've rounded up the best tricks for Rainbow Six Siege's new Battle Pass, and how to level up fast.
Play Unranked and Ranked multiplayer matches
While completing any Rainbow Six Siege matches will contribute to overall Battle Pass earnings, the Tour De Force Battle Pass specifically rewards Unranked and Ranked play. Playlists with competitive rulesets are favored, granting a 25 percent bonus to Battle Point earnings every match. In short, give the Quick Matches a break when grinding progression.
And while it might seem obvious, the value of completing matches during Rainbow Six Siege's inaugural full Battle Pass can't be understated. The Battle Points system rewards those who regularly finish matchmade games, serving as a steady source of progression, regardless of a win.
Completing any Rainbow Six Siege multiplayer match throughout the Battle Pass rewards 100 Battle Points, with wins increasing takings to 120 Battle Points. Each round win also gives 60 further Battle Points, allowing you to maximize earnings for every objective play. Pair that with your Unranked or Ranked bonus for fast leveling.
Complete the Battle Pass Challenges
As with any Battle Pass, Ubisoft has introduced a lineup of Challenges, providing additional Battle Points upon completion. Challenges establish various milestones for players to track, rewarding a hefty 850 Battle Points once reached. While some Challenges naturally progress throughout your playtime, some may demand further attention.
The Tour De Force Battle Pass opens with four personal challenges, setting thresholds for various activities across multiplayer. Upon meeting the criteria, the resulting Battle Points will be credited to your tier progression. Below are the Battle Pass challenges, now available through July 27, 2020.
- Damage Enemy: Deal 3000 damage to enemies.
- Kills Through A Breakable Surface: Kill 5 players through a breakable surface in multiplayer.
- Secondary Weapon Kills: Kill 50 players using secondary weapons in multiplayer.
- Suppressor Kills: Kill 70 players using suppressed weapons in multiplayer.
Ubisoft has also introduced one of four community challenges, rewarding all Battle Pass participants once the total player base surpasses its round win goal. The weekly Battle Pass community challenge concludes next week before the subsequent challenge goes live.
- Destroy Defender Gadgets: Coming soon.
- Headshots: Coming soon.
- Kills - Primary SMG: Coming soon.
- Rifle Kills: Coming soon.
A new Battle Pass community challenge is expected next week, alongside a further 850 Battle Points.
The Year 5 Pass boosts Battle Point earnings
The introduction of the Tour De Force Battle Pass also features ties to Ubisoft's primary premium membership, the Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Pass. Unlocking Year 5's six playable Operators, alongside exclusive items and bonuses, it's an all-inclusive VIP pass throughout the four seasons. The Year 5 Pass benefits now extend to the Battle Pass, including a 30 percent discount on the Premium track purchase, with a 30 percent increase in Battle Point earnings.
With Ubisoft preparing to bring over six new Operators to Rainbow Six Siege in Year 5, the Year 5 Pass has seen a price cut. That drops the membership to its lowest price compared to prior years, automatically unlocking the six new Operators at launch, alongside exclusive skins, boosters, and more. The Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Pass is now available for $25.
For the Battle Pass, the 30 percent discount and 30 percent progression booster automatically applies with the VIP membership.
All Access Pass
The Year 5 Pass unlocks the game's next six Operators, alongside exclusive in-game gear, progression boosters, and much more. With Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Void Edge update here, it provides all you need for 2020.
Fast track the Battle Pass tiers
While it's not the most rewarding way to experience the Battle Pass, Ubisoft does provide the ability to skip through any of the 35 tiers using R6 Credits. Each level requires 180 R6 Credits to fast track, or cheaper with the Year 5 Pass, ideal for gaining a head start or wrapping the final ranks. When skipping the whole Battle Pass, players will spend up to 6120 R6 Credits, requiring the $50 currency pack.
However, playing Rainbow Six Siege over the upcoming month will steadily pull you through the tiers, making it best to hold on purchases during the early days. But when you're nearing the end of the Battle Pass period, or just can't wait, R6 Credits are a valid way to play.
