If, you are like me, you love to play Rainbow Six Siege. I feel as if I have some tips to help you get a kill. Whether you just started playing today or your well into the levels, I feel I may be able to help!
DO YOU FIT YOUR OPERATOR?
One thing that helps in any situation is you relationship with you operator. If, you pick a 1 speed operator you a defender and if you a 3 speed operator you an attacker. Just know that operators like Rook are 1 speeds and are not roamers. So if you like to roam, 1 speeds probably are not the ones for you. Then you have the 3 speeds, such as Caveira. She is one to be known for roaming because she is fast. So as you can guess if you pick Caveira you roam, not like Rook with staying close to the objective. This goes for both attacking and defending. If you fast then push, and if your slow be the team support.
DO YOU LIKE THE GUN?
I play with a lot of people who use a certain operator only for the thing that operator provides( Rook gives armor, Blitz flashes people, Kapkan puts up traps on doors..etc…). I believe you are more than likely to increase you kills if you like the guns provided with you operator. I’m able to go as smoke and tear people up because I like his gun or I’m able to go as Lesion to help my team with putting poison traps on the ground to do damage to enemies but suck with his weapon because of the recoil. Make sure you like you weapon and can control it. Don’t be all over the place because of the recoil. That my friend isn’t going to get you a lot of kills.
WHAT SIGHT DO YOU USE?
Depending on what sight I use is determining how I play. I tend to do best with the acog sight while attacking and red dot sight while defending. It all depends on how much area you want to see while aiming down sight. Rainbow Six Siege is one of those games where you can die from a pea sized hole in the wall, so if you already pre-aiming around a corner you need all the space you can get to see any sneaky places the enemy has made on the walls, floor, and ceiling. This is really helpful for going down stairs. If a defender is waiting for you down stairs they can be holding an angle on the side and you will not see them unless you watch the kill cam. This sides of you sight take up a lot of crucial room that you need to have an advantage on the opponent.
KNOW THE BREACH POINTS!
The most crucial, without a doubt, 100% the best way you can increase you chance of getting a kill is by knowing where the enemy is coming from. Whether this is at the beginning of the game or toward the end. Use the cameras! At the beginning of a round pull up you cameras and check where the attackers are coming from and set up there. Eventually you will get used to this and run to a stop before even checking the cameras because every map as a high traffic breach point. This same goes for attackers. You need to have in the back of you mind the knowledge that there is a likely chance that someone who knows where you are going to breach from. Also, take into account to pre aim doors and windows for spawn kills. There very effective…and infuriating.
These tips will NOT help everyone and they are NOT the saving grace. These are just some things that I have found to help to increase my chances of getting a kill. So don’t expect to join a game and become the best there is. You will always in some way shape or form have a way to improve you own style to further you ability to play and get kills.
I hope this helped in some way. If, there are any question about something drop a comment. I will do my best to answer!
