Rainbow Six Extraction: Update 1.05 Introduces the New Prestige System

Rainbow Six Extraction Update 1.05
Update 1.05 Ubisoft

Update 1.05 for Rainbow Six Extraction is now available and it introduces the new prestige system where you can unlock unique permanent rewards, including icons, headgears, and uniforms.

There are 10 extra levels for each operator in Rainbow Six Extraction. Prestige levels are separate from milestone levels and are displayed in the user interface. At Level 5, you will unlock a special uniform and at Level 10, you will get a new headgear.

In addition, there’s a new Protean modeled after the REACT agent, Vigil. This new enemy appears to have the ability to become invisible and may mimic Vigil’s abilities, as is the case with other Proteans.

Aside from the new content, some balancing changes have been implemented. The Fostech Origin-12, or FO-12 for short, is a semi-automatic combat/tactical shotgun considered the fastest semi-auto shotgun in-game. In Update 1.05, the FO-12’s damage has been reduced from 35 to 25. Some people are surprised by the nerf, but Redditor @Somato_Tandwich offers an explanation. Apparently, the FO-12 can melt an Apex or Tormentor if you get close enough. So to balance this weapon out, an adjustment had to be made.
