Strategies


Here are some helpful strategies to get you started in your first games of Rainbow Six Siege: 


Stick with teammates that have unique gadgets that work well with yours. Synergy.

Attackers

  • Use breaching charges and destruction judiciously. They can open new pathways into rooms and line of sights (walls and floors that you can shoot through but cannot traverse). Be creative in your uses. It is possible to breach through a trap door on the floor and conduct a surprise attack on the Defenders from above.
  • Use your drones to scout the objective location, enemy fortifications and positions, then place your drones to gain an area of surveillance. It is advisable to hide a drone in a position where the objective is visible.
  • You can disable the Defenders’ security camera feeds by shooting them out.

Defenders

  • Use destruction to your advantage. You can use shotgun blasts to create your own line of sight (walls and floors with metal studs allow you to shoot through but not traverse them), or use explosive gadgets to create unexpected openings in destructible surfaces.
  • You can position your defenses to leave intentional “weak” points, and lure Attackers into a well-laid trap.
  • Use the security camera feeds to gain intel on the enemy team’s position and their movements. You can use this information to adjust your team’s tactics on the fly.
  • Eliminating the Attacker’s drones will rob them of the chance to gain additional intel.

We hope you found this Open Beta Game Guide useful. If you have any more questions, we invite you to join the community and discuss Siege on our subreddit & forum. 

Thanks a lot, we hope you enjoy!
