Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege thrives on its consistent gunplay, laying the foundations for balanced, competitive multiplayer combat. Shaking weapon upgrades, unlockable abilities and other forms of vertical progression, players are rewarded with cosmetic in-game items instead.

While a majority of Rainbow Six Siege's cosmetic content can be earned in-game, Ubisoft also offers a range of premium paid "Elite Skins." Here's a complete breakdown all the Elite content available so far.

Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 Season 3: Everything We Expect

Elite skins explained

Elite sets offer a collection of distinct cosmetic items tied to a specific Operator, detached from the common themes across most other skins. Every Elite set follows a similar item template, packing a uniform, headgear, weapon skins and a weapon charm. These bundles also provide a level of customization not possible with traditional skins, including a gadget skin, golden pre-match Operator card and final victory pose.

These sets are obtainable via Rainbow Six Siege's dedicated "Shop" tab, tied exclusively to the game's premium currency, R6 Credits. Sets are priced at 1,800 R6 Credits each, while the shop-wide discount offered to Year 3 Pass holders grants a reduction to 1,620.
