Released back in 2015, R6S Ranks have changed over the years, especially in 2022 with the introduction of Ranked 2.0. As a unique system, let’s take a closer look at how it works in the context of Rainbow Six betting.

Firstly, the new R6S Ranks system abandons the classic Matchmaking (MMR) value and instead each player has an MMR split into Skill and Rank for the best Rainbow Six Siege players:

  • Skill – hidden value, represents the ability to win a game, a combination of estimation of skill and uncertainty of this estimation
  • Rank – used for progression through the competitive ladder, rank points update after every match and is outlined in examples such as ‘Gold’ or ‘Emerald’

List of R6S Ranks

Based on the rarity of precious metals combined with Roman numerals, here are the R6 rankings & divisions in ascending order:

  • Copper- V, IV, III, II, I
  • Bronze – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Silver – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Gold – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Platinum – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Emerald – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Diamond – V, IV, III, II, I
  • Champions

Typically, players competing in Champions are your esports betting favourites.

Each division consists of 100 RP, each match being an opportunity to win Ranked Points.

Rank Distribution & Percentages

In a recent report according to R6 Stats, here’s how the community stacks up in each division:


Naturally, these statistics will shift with every minor update, possibly also shifting the esports odds.

R6 Rankings – Up and Down

Climbing up the R6 Rankings involves improving your skill level to have a better rank.

  • Placement matches – no longer in the game, everyone starts from Copper 5 and must climb up from there once the rank reset kicks in every few months
  • Rank depends on skill – earning more Ranked Points depends on your performance, your enemy’s skill and the overall performance
  • Demotion Shield – if your RP in a division drops down to 0 or below, players are given one last chance to defend their rank or fall into a lower division
