Rainbow Six Extraction is available across platforms to play worldwide, offering fans of the tactical shooter series an intriguing twist to the winning formula of the Rainbow Six series. The new title in the series brings back many familiar elements from its precursor, including the iconic operators and tactical approaches to combat.

But this time, players will be going against menacing aliens with two partners, in exciting PvE co-op missions. The game is best experienced with two more players, which can be invited using Buddy Pass tokens, but unfortunately, some players couldn’t play the game due to technical glitches on the first day of the launch.

As of now, the biggest issue reported by players who are trying to play the game on their laptops, as it looks that people who have laptops with RTX Nvidia Mobile GPUs are unable to launch Rainbow Six Extraction.

Rainbow Six Extraction not launching using mobile GPU

Before seeking the solution, it’s important to note that this could be an issue that will need to be fixed by the game developer, and it has nothing to do with the laptop’s internals. For some reason, gaming is facing trouble launching properly on laptops because of their integrated GPUs. Let’s see how to fix it.

Check GPU drivers

The first step should be always to ensure that you have the latest GPU drivers installed on your system. You can check for the latest drivers via GPU apps. At times, even after updating drivers issues may persist, and thus a clean “fresh” installation might also be advised, in order to get rid of any potential conflicts with older files. Players should also update the GeForce Experience app as well, not only the drivers.

Change preferred graphics processor

Another thing that could fix this issue is changing the preferred graphics processor in Nvidia settings to a High-Performance Nvidia processor. Follow these simple steps to do so:

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Select 3D Settings.
  • Click on Manage 3D settings
  • Set Preferred Graphics Processor to High-Performance NVIDIA Processor
  • Save changes and restart your computer

Once players complete these steps, they should try to start Rainbow Six Extraction again and see if the game is working fine.
