How to save and rescue the MIA Operator in Rainbow Six Extraction

Rainbow Six Extraction put game and word operator Rainbow Six Siege and added terrifying alien parasites that players must defeat as they make their way through invasions. A successful escape can be difficult, especially on higher difficulty levels, and failure to escape results in your Operator being left behind and being marked as MIA.

Losing your favorite Operator can be devastating, but all hope is not lost. Every Moderator can be rescued by returning to the same quest area, though Archaeans will do their best to stop you. Understand how to save and rescue MIA Operators in Rainbow Six Extraction before starting the mission can help you get in and out with the missing Moderator easily.

Before we explain how to rescue your Moderators, let’s analyze how they use MIA. All Moderators start the Invasion with full health (unless they are recovering from previous invasions) and cannot regain health while on the quest. You can find medkits scattered around each area, but these provide a temporary boost. This means that when you reach 0 HP, your character will enter the Down But Not Out phase, asking your teammates to revive you. If you enter the DBNO stage a second time, you will be knocked out and your teammates have to carry you to a mining area to escape. If your team leaves you behind or if the entire team is eliminated, your Moderator will be marked as MIA.

If you prefer to play solo, keep in mind that there is no DBNO phase because there aren’t any teammates around to revive you. Your Moderator will instantly become a MIA as a result, so use extreme caution when running alone.

Knowing how Operators perform MIA can help you avoid getting knocked down and prevent you from having to rescue them later. Always keep an eye on your health and take advantage of every health kit you come across. Ping them to your team if you have full health to make sure all players survive. Transporting teammates to the mining area is dangerous and puts you at a disadvantage. Also, don’t be afraid to uproot early if you’re not prepared for the next area. Running away with less XP is always a better option than going MIA.

Now, if you find yourself traveling with an MIA Operator, you’ll have to go back to the same mission area to rescue them. They will not be available in Operator selection and will be listed as MIA. You also won’t get any XP earned when they go missing until you rescue them.

When you choose a mission, one of the objectives will be replaced with rescuing your missing Operator. The moderator will be confined in the Archaeological Tree with creepy appendages in an area covered with Sprawl. Listen to the beep to find the Moderator’s location, or look for rooms with multiple Sprawls.

Once you find the Moderators, you have to manually pull them out of the tree. The tree will resist and a bar will appear, showing your progress. Trees will use Anchor Points attached to the wall to keep Operators restricted, meaning the player must destroy these before they can rescue their Operator.

You can shoot tentacles before they attach to the wall, or directly destroy Anchor Points as they unfold. The red circle to the left of the bar will gradually empty and a message will let you know when you can pull the Moderator out.

This tug-of-war can be tedious and teams must work together to successfully rescue the MIA Operator. One player should pull out the Operators while the others cover them and destroy the tentacles and Anchor Points. The yellow diamond in the center of the bar will move left or right to show who is winning the tug of war, and successfully moving the diamond to the right will release the Operator.

The red icons to the left of the red circle represent Cells coming from the tentacles and Anchor Points. If the player doesn’t destroy the Anchor or tentacle before the symbols hit the red circle, the tree will grow stronger, prolonging the process.

After successfully pulling the Operator from the tree, you will have to take them to the mining area. Once rescued, they will return to active state on the Operator page, although they will need time to heal. You’ll also get XP from the first tour as a reward for rescuing them.

Do not panic if your Operator uses MIA. Rescuing them is very simple and they will return to combat in no time. Also, if you somehow manage to lose your entire list of Operators, the first list lost will be available. However, perhaps you should rethink your strategy if it comes to this point.
