Unranked is a playlist available in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege that was introduced in the Operation Ember Rise expansion. The playlist is available for all players with a Clearance Level of 10 or above.
The purpose of the playlist is for players to practice and prepare themselves for the Ranked Playlist. It features all the rules, gameplay changes, and map rotation as the Ranked playlist but does not affect the player's rank, Ranked Kill/Death ratio, or MMR points. Additionally, any penalties incurred while in Unranked will also carry over to the Ranked Playlist and vice versa.
- Does not affect ranking in Ranked
- The system is based on the principle "best team of 5 rounds":
- A minimum of 4 rounds must be won by a team to be eligible to win a match.
- After winning 4 rounds, the team must have 2 points of advantage, unless there's a tie and the next round will be the fifth or subsequent win for either of the teams.
- A maximum of 9 rounds can be played per match.
- Yields double the amount of Renown for winning a match in Quick Match
- Abandoning your team before the end of a match will temporarily render you unable to play Unranked and Ranked for 30 minutes; The length of the penalty will increase after repeated offenses
- Each round is 3 minutes long
- Features the same map rotation as Ranked
