This page will serve as the main guide for Rainbow 6 Siege, a tactical first-person shooter from Ubisoft. Our guide will cover tips for both Attackers and Defenders, full operator profiles for every faction, including the FBI, SAS, Spetsnaz, GIGN and GSG 9. We’ll also help you earn more Renown, and even give you a full walkthrough on how you can win as either side while playing on Hostage, Secure Area and Bomb. Finally, we’ll list the best operators in the game.
Rainbow 6 Siege Tips
- As an Attacker, use your Drone to scout for the objective during the Preparation Phase. Finding it can be the difference between winning and losing.
- If you don’t find the objective with your Drone, you can still access it during the Action Phase. Make finding the objective your number one priority.
- Vertical thinking is huge in Rainbow 6 Siege. Be on the lookout for breach points in the roof and floors. No matter what side you’re playing as, it’s a game changer.
- Master the art of the peek and lean. If you can get shots on your opponent without exposing your entire body to fire, you’re more likely to win.
- Communicate with your team effectively, leaving the mic open for callouts, and so you can hear footsteps as your opponents move around. This is huge.
