Rainbow Six Siege Tier List [All Operators Ranked]

After playing for 75+ hours, these are the operators that I'll play in competitive matches

As Rainbow Six Siege enters Year 8 Season 4, Ubisoft’s recent major update has once again caused significant shifts in the ongoing meta. With an extensive pool of 70 operators available, choosing the best one might be perplexing for players. That’s where the Rainbow Six Siege Operator Tier List steps in to assist you.

Update: This tier list is updated with the latest changes from the March 12, 2024 patch update.
Key Takeaways
  • There are currently 70 Operators in Rainbow Six Siege.
  • Every Operator has a unique ability that complements best when synergized with the team.
  • The weapons of the operators were also considered when writing this tier list. 
  • S-Tier: Operators boast top-tier attacking and defending capabilities.
  • A-Tier: Operators are slightly below the S-Tier, yet they are robust, essential for ranking up, and highly effective.
  • B-Tier: Operators might not match the strength of S-Tier and A-Tier operators but can be potent when paired with higher-tier operators.
  • C-Tier: Operators are weaker compared to average ones and are very situational in high-level games.
  • D-Tier: These Operators are the least powerful and are best avoided.

S-Tier

S-Tier Operators
S-Tier Operators

The highest-ranking operators in the Rainbow Six Siege tier list are the top attackers and defenders. Lana is one of my favorite attackers in Rainbow Six Siege. Her equipment, including holograms and two fragmentation grenades, makes the Dutch operator one of the most formidable operators.

Azami has a distinctive concept. As the defenders’ sole counter to vertical plays apart from C4s, her ability is unique. It can hinder attackers from entering the site during the final moments of a round, making her highly valuable for holding positions, particularly when paired with Jäger.

A-Tier

A-Tier Operators

In Rainbow Six Siege, A-tier operators bring unique strengths to the battlefield, catering to various playstyles for both experienced and new players. Hibana, the second hardbreacher introduced, utilizes her X-KAIROS to deploy two, four, or six pellets at once. I play Hardbreacher more, and she excels in breaching reinforced walls and boasts numerous strategies for easily opening complete walls.

Maestro’s cameras prove valuable in defensive setups. They can eliminate various attacking gadgets, such as hard breaching charges and drones. Additionally, his bulletproof cameras and LMG equipped with over 80 bullet magazines further enhance his utility.

B-Tier

The B-Tier operators in Rainbow Six Siege offer a blend of advantages and disadvantages, providing players with various strategic choices. Caveira possesses the ability to significantly impact a single round, yet she tends to operate in a self-centered manner. She can easily be countered by Jackal, which I tend to pick if I spot her during the preparation phase.

Osa excels at deploying shields strategically across crucial positions and windows, effectively covering expansive areas. She proves highly valuable in post-plant scenarios. Additionally, her use of Impact EMPs makes her an excellent ally for operators like Thermite, Hibana, and Ace.

C-Tier

C-Tier Operators

In Rainbow Six Siege, C-tier operators offer a blend of strengths and limitations, presenting players with distinctive challenges and playstyles. Thunderbird’s healing stations are highly advantageous as they remain available for use once placed on the floor. However, you need to crawl or walk towards her stations, which can be difficult in many scenarios.

Dokkaebi’s gadget is not only effective for gathering information but also for disrupting the defenders’ intelligence. While her loadout may not be the strongest, her Impact EMPs make Dokkaebi an excellent choice, especially when paired with Thermite. She excels in a supportive role and clearing roamer, requiring strategic utilization to maximize her potential.

D-Tier

D Tier Operators

Operators categorized in the D-tier in Rainbow Six Siege are generally best avoided in most situations. For instance, Blackbeard’s ability involves a glass shield on top of his weapon, enabling him to withstand one headshot, which isn’t considered sufficient within the current meta. Additionally, his available loadout is deemed inadequate for effective performance. I would refund these operators if possible.

How Operators Were Ranked?

Having played Rainbow Six Siege for more than 75+ hours, I have encountered all operators. The ranking is based on the weapon, ability, and specialization. However, if you wanna get better at Rainbow Six Siege, you ought to try the Best Settings for optimal performance.
