Ubisoft has kicked off the ninth season of the Rainbow Six Pro League, its competitive championship for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Leading up to February’s Six Invitational in Montreal, the studio is set to debut a new wave of paid limited-time cosmetics, under the “2019 Collection.”
While Ubisoft hasn’t formally debuted the set, details on its contents and availability have surfaced ahead of release. Here’s what you need to know.
What are Rainbow Six Siege 2019 Collection Packs?
While the 2019 Collection is yet to be unveiled, a premature in-game notification has confirmed its existence. Citing the upcoming Six Invitational, the pop-up details one complementary pack for all, redeemable via the Home menu.
The 2019 Collection isn’t unexpected, following multiple leaks signaling the pack’s imminent release. It’s among the latest wave of limited-time randomized crates, unlocking a set pool of paid cosmetics. While similar to prior Outbreak and Sunsplash collections, the 2019 drop features skins themed around the Pro League event.
The full set is expected to tie to real-world money, requiring the game’s premium currency, R6 Credits. Aside from one complimentary pack, we don’t expect a way to obtain the 2019 Collection for free. Luckily, a lack of duplicates should mean you won’t waste money on previously-unlocked gear.

While cryptic randomized loot is the basis of the 2019 Collection, the full cosmetic set has seemingly leaked online. Reputable Rainbow Six Siege leakster, R6S News, posted the alleged collection, with a range of themed Six Invitational cosmetics spanning five in-game Operators.
The 2019 Collection is set to feature various khaki uniforms, for Ash, Thatcher, Doc, Dokkaebi, and Mira. While subtle, Six Invitational pin badges add a seasonal flair. Assuming each pack stows a single item, expect five headgear and five uniforms, for a total of 10 packs. While images of a new weapon skin have also surfaced, this is likely the exclusive item detailed for attendees.
Here’s a brief overview of what we can expect:
- Ash Six Invitational Uniform
- Ash Six Invitational Headgear
- Thatcher Six Invitational Uniform
- Thatcher Six Invitational Headgear
- Doc Six Invitational Uniform
- Doc Six Invitational Headgear
- Dokkaebi Six Invitational Uniform
- Dokkaebi Six Invitational Headgear
- Mira Six Invitational Uniform
- Mira Six Invitational Headgear
As with any leak, take this information lightly until its official debut.
2019 Collection Packs release date
With only a premature listing, it’s unclear when the 2019 Collection is set to hit Rainbow Six Siege. We expect the packs to debut in late January or early February, in the leadup to the Six Invitational. The previous Sunsplash Collection was sold for two weeks, indicating a similar period here.
2019 Collection Packs pricing
Beyond the complimentary pack for all players, 2019 Collection Packs are set to cost. Similar to previous packages, these are likely priced at 300 R6 Credits each, which varies between $1 and $3, depending on the number of credits purchased. Assuming 10 items, and factoring in a free pack, you’ll pay a minimum of 2,700 R6 credits (around $25) for the complete collection. Owners of the game’s Year 3 Season Pass will receive a further 10 percent discount.
In the meantime, Ubisoft is gearing up for Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 Season 1, with new Operators, maps, and more expected.
