Rainbow Six Extraction Research Studies Guide

Ubisoft has introduced a new set of challenges in their recent Rainbow Six title, Rainbow Six Extraction. Here’s everything you need to know about Rainbow Six Extraction Research Studies.

Rainbow Six Extraction Research Studies

Rainbow Six has always been a very strategic game, which is as much about putting your mind into it as it is about reflexes.

However, never in a million years had I imagined that the developers would actually go ahead and name their challenges as studies. Now that you actually think about it, this naming convention sits pretty well with the genre of the game.

When you get your gaming gear ready for a match of Rainbow Six, you can actually tell your parents or your friends you’re getting ready for a “study” session.

Rainbow Six Extraction research studies will send you around New York, San Francisco, and Alaska where you’ll be putting bullets through enemies and gaining XP.

There’re nine sets of study challenges spread across each region, and each set comprises three challenges.

The final region of the game is known as Truth and Consequences, and it comprises 9 sets of studies as well. However, they’re far more challenging than the rest.

Therefore, get your notes in order, and let’s jump right into these Rainbow Six Extraction Research Studies.
