Alpha Packs are a feature of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. They contain cosmetic items that allow players to customize their Operator with Uniforms, Headgear, Charms, or Weapon Skins. They were officially announced at Six Invitational 2017 and were introduced on July 18, 2017 for players on PC, on July 24, 2017 for players on Xbox One and on July 26, 2017 for players on PlayStation 4.
Alpha Packs are obtained through Renown or by a lottery spin that occurs after winning a match. In order to obtain a pack, the spin must land on the percentage bar. If it does not land on the bar, 2% will be added the players percentage bar. This is further increased to 3% while playing Ranked. If a player loses a match, a spin will not occur. Despite that, 1.5% will be added to the percentage bar or 2% in Ranked. Unranked yields similar percentages to Ranked. Season Pass owners receive 0.3 extra percentages at all times. Leaving a match before it is over will not award any percentages.
The chances of winning the Alpha Pack are predetermined once a match is won, despite what the wheel at the end might suggest. Even if waited, a player will already be given a chance to obtain the pack. Quitting before reaching the wheel on the end of a match will have no impact on a player's chances at winning an Alpha Pack.
Duplicate items are occasionally awarded in Alpha Packs. If a duplicate is received, it will automatically be converted into Renown based on the type and rarity of the item.
Exclusive Alpha Packs are available for limited times to coincide with ongoing events. These are awarded through the completion of certain challenges, participating in promotions and events or may be purchased with Renown or R6 Credits.
