It doesn't matter whether you plan on tackling Rainbow Six Extraction solo or as part of a team. Your gear and loadouts will be crucial to ensuring you can get the job done when you're in an incursion.
A big part of the set-up for each incursion is picking your REACT Tech. This is special gear that can have a range of benefits and fit into a variety of offensive or defensive play styles. So, what types of tech are on offer and what does each one do? We've got the breakdown of every single REACT Tech item for you.
All REACT Tech in Rainbow Six Extraction
There are fifteen total pieces of REACT Tech in Rainbow Six Extraction including the base items you start the game with.
You start Rainbow Six Extraction with access to Barricades, Wall Reinforcements and a Recon Drone, which Siege players are already very familiar with. You also have a Nanoedge Blade (melee weapon), Smoke Grenade and UV Light.
The UV light allows you to see enemies and their weak points through walls to help you approach each room tactically. Smoke Grenades temporarily disorient archaeans and will allow you to get out of a sticky situation.
