When can you qualify and what is the minimum level to play ranked in Rainbow Six Siege?

Any new account to the game will need to be at least level 50 if they want to start grinding the ranked matchmaking in the game. You will need to play only one game as of Ranked 2.0 to get placed in the first rank of Copper 5 in Rainbow Six Siege.

Ubisoft has also implemented a new system during the game's last season, known as Operation Deep Freeze. If you are a returning player who did not participate in the Ranked matchmaking, you will need to get a total of 5 PvP match wins to qualify for Ranked again.

MMR or matchmaking rating is the number of points you gain or lose based on your performance and your victory or defeat in an in-game match. However, since Ubisoft reworked the Rainbow Six Siege competitive rank system into Ranked 2.0, climbing the ladder has become much easier.

You will need to get a total of 100 MMR or Ranked Points to progress to the next segment or rank in Rainbow Six Siege. After achieving more than 3500 points, you will be promoted to Champion which consists of the best players in the game.

Besides your standard MMR points in Rainbow Six Siege, the game also has a hidden point system that keeps track of your performance. Since the introduction of Ranked 2.0, every player initially gets placed in Copper V, from where they slowly move up the ladder. If you had a good rank during the last season, you will find it easier to climb up the ladder.


The rank system exists to test your skills and your ability to learn the operators and map layouts in Rainbow Six Siege. The better you learn, the higher you will go up the ladder.
