Good looks, good skills.

Despite having a slow start in terms of total players upon launch, Rainbow Six Siege has become one of the biggest esports titles with consistent updates and unique gameplay.

Siege’s fun and challenging take on tactical shooters wasn’t the only pillar of its success, however. The game’s multiple progression systems and regular operator releases keep players engaged. Additionally, Elite skins stand at the top of Ubisoft’s in-game cosmetics offerings.

Elite skins can feature different characteristics than an Operator’s general theme and come with headgear, weapon charms, and weapon skins on top of a uniform. What makes these skins truly elite is that they also allow players to do further customizations like Victory Poses, Operator Cards, and Gadget Skins. Though Ubisoft gave away quite a few Elite Skins in 2018, the only reliable way of getting an Elite Skin is unlocking one with Credits.

Here are all the available Elite skins in Rainbow Six Siege.

SAS

Sledge – L Detachment

The L Detachment Elite Skin for Sledge does a good job of capturing the operator’s Scottish origin. The hammer featured in the set is a traditional Scottish hammer that’s used in the hammer throwing competition of the Highland Games.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Thatcher – Operation Nimrod

The Operation Nimrod skin of Thatcher was the first skin to reveal the operator’s face. It also has a different vibe from the rest considering there are only a handful of operators that rock a stylish handlebar mustache.

Thatcher was a part of three conflicts: the battle of Goose Green, Falklands War, and the Iranian Embassy siege, according to Siege’s lore. The Operation Nimrod skin especially resembles uniforms worn during the Iranian Embassy siege.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Smoke – Sanguine Arsenic

Smoke’s Sanguine Arsenic skin takes the fans of the operator back in time featuring his younger self. The casual style and colors of the skin also separate it from the rest and can be a breath of fresh air for anyone looking to stray away from the strict military tone of Siege. Or maybe you’re just tired of confusing him with Mute all the time.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Mute – F Squadron

F squadron was a crucial part of the British Royal Air Force during World War Two, and the skin does a great job of making Mute look like he was straight out of that era. The stylish vintage uniform also comes with worn-out weapon skins, which give the impression of Mute being battle-tested.

Price: 1,800 Credits

FBI SWAT

Ash – Sidewinder

The Sidewinder is likely to be the most common Elite Skin in Siege since the skin was given as compensation to all players back in 2018 after conflicts surrounding the Outbreak Pack. Despite being one of the older skins in the game, the desert-themed colors of the Sidewinder skin still keep up with the times in terms of fashion.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Ash – Black Viper

Black Viper looks a lot like the Sidewinder Elite Skin. The main visible difference between the two is Black Viper’s lighter camo tones, which can be enough to make a decision upon.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Ash – Tomb Raider

Parts of the Siege community thinking that Ash looked like a military version of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. Fans wondered if Ubisoft would ever release a Tomb Raider-themed skin for her, but considering the developer doesn’t usually stray too far away from Siege when it comes to cosmetics, the community kept their expectations low. Those expectations were justified, however, since Ubisoft released an actual Tomb Raider skin for Ash, and it looks nothing short of amazing.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Thermite – Vintage Bureau

The Vintage Bureau Elite Skin for Thermite features the operator in a timeless FBI uniform. This old-school uniform is a nice throwback 20th century and it also comes with a fitting gadget skin to Thermite’s personality. 

Price: 1800 Rainbow Six Credits

Pulse – Lucky Seventh

Mute isn’t the only operator with a World War Two skin. The Lucky Seventh comes with a uniform that was first used by the seventh Armored Division of the U.S. Army. Pulse also got a hair redo with a mohawk and it makes him look even more badass than his default skin.

Price: 1,800 Credits

GIGN

Lion – Leon S. Kennedy

Screengrab via Ubisoft

If Leon Scott Kennedy were to pick who’d be representing him in Siege, he couldn’t have done a better job. The Leon S. Kennedy skin for Lion brings the Resident Evil character to life in Siege.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Twitch – Maquis

Ubisoft’s passion for releasing historically accurate skins is something to admire. The Maquis skin features Twitch as a member of the French resistance during the Second World War.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Doc – Trench Medic

Continuing on with the French theme, the Trench Medic features our favorite medic in a uniform from World War I. He also comes with a slick-looking mustache, which can be considered as a signature of the 1910s.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Rook – Gendarmerie

Though it may be hard to tell the difference between this and Rook’s default skin if you only think of his armor when you look at him, Gendarmerie features a real-life GIGN uniform. Alongside being one of the slickest uniforms in the GIGN division, the skin also comes with a unique victory pose and several thematic gun skins.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Spetsnaz

Tachanka – Slava Korolyu

Going through a corridor in Siege can turn into one of the hardest tasks possible if Tachanka is on the other side. Considering he’ll just start raining bullets toward you when he sees you, he may not even need armor to protect himself.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Glaz – Lethal Citizen

Glaz’s main skin can give the impression of a dutiful soldier. His Lethal Citizen Elite Skin, on the other hand, makes him look like a leader of a revolution. The stylish flat cap is the star of the concept alongside his striking beard.

Price: 1,800 Rainbow Six Credits

Fuze – Second Shock Army

The second Shock Army was a branch of the Soviet Union forces which specialized in overcoming difficult defensive resistances to make way for mobile formations. Knowing Fuze, he’d be a great addition to the Second Shock Army, and the skin shows it.

Price: 1800 Rainbow Six Credits

Kapkan – Vympel

Vympel is a group of armed forces that are known for being involved in secret missions operating under the KGB. Kapkan comes in a nice looking camo which should make him quite hard to detect in low light environments.

Price: 1,800 Credits

GSG 9

Blitz – Panzerstärke

Moving on to Germany, the Panzerstärke Elite Skin turns Blitz into a walking German tank. The colors reflect a World War II vibe and give Blitz the impression of being unbreakable.

Price: 1,800 Credits

IQ – Reunification

IQ’s Reunification Elite Skin takes a step back from the military approach which looks to be the common theme for most of the Elites. Reunification features IQ in an exercising outfit that looks to be from the ‘80s and ‘90s. It’s a great throwback skin and certainly, a must-have if you enjoy standing out.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Jäger – Flying Ace

Flying Ace features Jäger in an old school Pilot’s uniform which suits the operator’s passion for flying. Though it isn’t clearly known which era the uniform is from, it belongs to the German Air Forces.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Bandit – Axle 13

The Axle 13 Elite Skin goes against the groove and features a Bandit who’s probably tired of uniforms. Bandit removes his mask and becomes a biker as a part of Axle 13 while developing a taste for tattoos.

Price: 1,800 Credits

JTF2

Buck – Snowdrift Expert

Being a Montreal native, Buck’s no stranger to cold environments. The Snowdrift Expert skin features the agent in a snowsuit that should blend in well with the snow outside Chalet if you’re lucky.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Frost – Huntress

Frost spent her childhood in Vancouver where it can get too cold, too quickly. Keeping a beanie and a scarf at an arm’s reach can have its advantages but not if you’re going south. The Huntress Elite Skin features Frost in a lighter gear and gives her an intimidating look.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Navy SEALs

Blackbeard – Guerrilla

The Guerilla Elite Skin takes Blackbeard into the Vietnam war and features the operator in light clothes to avoid overheating, alongside what looks to be ammo that should be enough for days.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Valkyrie – Photographer ‘72

When it comes to cameras no one can outperform Valkyrie. The Photographer ‘72 skin features the operator as a wartime journalist who surely can handle herself in the field.

Price: 1,800 Credits

BOPE

Capitão – Responsa

Bit by bit, more casual skins are making into the Siege which can be a welcomed breath of fresh air. The Responsa elite skins feature Capitão in everyday clothes but somehow gives him a post-apocalyptic vibe which could be all thanks to his crossbow.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Caveira – Mata Leão

It’s hard to tell what Caveira thinks behind her face paint that her default skin features. Mata Leão Elite Skin sheds a light on that mystery and shows that she has the eyes of a killer. And, as an easter egg, the skin means “chokehold” in Portuguese.

Price: 1,800 Credits

SAT

Hibana – Onkochishin

The Onkochishin Elite Skin features Hibana in a full-on traditional Japanese outfit. She looks to have made some adjustments to the outfit to make it more battle friendly and support movement, however.

Price: 1,800 Credits

 Echo – Tenkamusou

Screengrab via Ubisoft

Echo looks like a man of few words, which is one of the main characteristics of ninjas. With the Tenkamusou Elite Skin, Echo turns into a ninja. The ponytail finish he chooses completes the look.

Price: 1,800 Credits

GEO

Jackal – Rastreador

Screengrab via Ubisoft

When it comes to tracking enemies, no one does it better than Jackal. The Rastreador skin for the operator features him in an outfit that looks like it was out of a detective shows. And, fittingly enough, its name means “tracker” in Spanish, his native language.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Mira – Inspiración

The Inspiración Elite Skin does a great job of preserving the tunes and colors of the Spanish Civil War. The removal of the helmet allows players to see Mira’s face more clearly while also making room for a stylish beret.

Price: 1,800 Credits

SDU

Lesion – Nano-Tox 32

The Nano-Tox 32 Elite Skin doesn’t turn Lesion into the Terminator but it does a great job of capturing a more Sci-Fi vibe around the operator.

Price: 1,800 Credits

GROM

Zofia – S.T.A.R.S. Unit

Screengrab via Ubisoft

The collaboration between Resident Evil and Siege was one of the best ones so far. When it came down to who would be the perfect candidate for a Jill Valentine skin, Zofia was hands down the best choice.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Zofia – Duch Bojowy

Almost all operators have military backgrounds, turning them into what they’re today. The Duch Bojowy Elit Skin drives us back into memory lane and showcases a young Zofia who’s a new recruit to the Polish army.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Ela – Huk Sztuki

Bad career choices happen and if you were to ask Ela what she would have liked to become, she would probably tell you that she was meant to be an artist. The Huk Sztuki Elite Skin brings out Ela’s artistic background in a punk-ish vibe and is an alternative version of Ela if he had never gotten into the military.

Price: 1,800 Credits

707th SMB

Vigil – Zero-Day Threat

Screengrab via Ubisoft

Vigil’s quite gifted when it comes to electronics. The Zero-Day Threat outfit makes him look like a vigilante hacker, and he also shows that he has the moves in the skin’s trailer.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Dokkaebi – Electro Beat

Screengrab via Ubisoft

Dokkaebi changed a lot about herself to survive. Hiding her real persona for a long time allowed her to advance through the ranks, but it would be hard to continue such a gimmick without taking a break once in a while. The Electro Beat skin features the operator in casual clothes, and she shows off her dance skills in the animation.

Price: 1,800 Credits

GSUTR

Maverick – Hotshot Welder

When Maverick is out in the field, he doesn’t leave anything to chance, and the Hotshot Welder skin for the operator is proof of that.

Price: 1,800 Credits

SASR

Mozzie – Deadset Hero

Screengrab via Ubisoft

The Australian Operator Mozzie is all about motorcycles. The Deadset Hero skin gives him a western spin, however, and makes him look like a modern, tactical cowboy.

Price: 1,800 Credits

Inkaba Task Force

Melusi – Umvikeli

Screengrab via Ubisoft

After resigning from the army, Melusi started training local women in tracking, interception, and surveillance at the Southern African Wildlife College. The Umvikeli skin features in an outfit that both allows her to be agile and protects her from the sun.

Price: 1,800 Credits
