The Battle Pass is a microtransaction system featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The pass rewards players with cosmetics through tier progression. Each Battle Pass features additional information and lore about Rainbow Operators. A test pass, dubbed the "Mini Battle Pass" was released in the Operation Ember Rise expansion. Following the Operation Shifting Tides expansion, all expansions have featured their own Battle Pass.
Each Battle Pass features Free and Premium Tracks. Both tracks originally offer different tiers that offer various rewards composed of exclusive customization items, Alpha Packs, currency packs, and boosters. Each Battle Pass offers a different number of tiers and rewards.
The Free Track is available for all players while the Premium Track costs 1200 . Should a player purchase the Premium track at a later point, all tiers previously unlocked in the Free track will be automatically unlocked in the Premium Track. The Premium Bundle is also available and immediately unlocks 12 tiers alongside the Premium track and costs 2400 . Season Pass holders have a 30% discount on these prices as well as a 30% boost on the amount of Battle Points earned. Starting with Operation Crimson Heist, the new Operator for the season will be the reward for the first tier of the Premium track.
Progression on a track is obtained through "Battle Points" which are awarded based on performance in completed matches. Battle Points are awarded for completing rounds in multiplayer. Points are not obtained for leaving matches, getting kicked, staying idle, and surrendering.

Mini Battle Pass
- "You've seen me before. Perhaps in the shadows, observing, watching, recording my thoughts. While Six would take the center stage, I was never far behind, whispering my advice as I calculated and planned Rainbow's every step. Now, as I assume the mantle of Six, I can finally set in motion the strategies I have carefully engineered. I know it will take years to unfold, but no matter, I am playing the long game. I will change Rainbow. Forever. Also, please, just call me Harry."
