After spending a handful of hours with the game, I’ve come out with some profitable tips to help improve your game and possibly get better in Rainbow Six Siege.

It doesn’t matter if you think that you’re getting rekt in the Ranked matches. Follow these tips and you’ll become a ranked pro very soon.

Try to operate with a full 5 man squad

Don’t get into a rank queue unless you have 5 people to play with. Random players might not be good enough and you’ll encounter difficulties while interacting with them. The best idea is to play with your friends or gaming buddies you are comfortable playing with.

Discover the maps completely

You have to remember the differences and signs of all the locations. Understanding which floors are breachable and which are not is a skill that can win you a match against strong opponents.

You can build a murder hole in the breachable walls by meleeing or shooting a couple of shotgun shells. It’s pretty unconventional as around 25% of all the players use this tactic.

Plan your strategies

Plan your strategies for attack and defense before commencing ranked matches. Going in a ranked match without any planning or strategies isn’t a good idea, you’re going to suffer total disappointment. Sort out your flanking paths in defense.

An instance of such a method can be two flankers while the other three members of your team camp the objective. In attack, evacuate out the flankers by fighting together then go for the objective. The corresponding plans don’t always work. So, keep yourself modernized with the meta and accommodate your strategies respectively.

Be precise and agile in gunfights

Work with your favored operators frequently to get habitual to their gun’s recoil or bullet trajectory patterns. Your skill in terms of aiming and reflexes in a 1v1 gunfight will perceive you through from every situation, and you’ll be a horror for your opponents to deal with.

Work on flick shots, drop shots, and the most essential thing, leaning.

A player with great learning skills is a force to be judged with. The angle at which you’re leaning can either create or break a gunfight.

Stay alive at all times, don’t chase your opponents

If your K/D ratio drops, don’t get annoyed.

Don’t begin playing like a lunatic by frantically speeding your opponents. To make things easy, go ahead and utilize the cameras and drones to discover the opponents and prepare your attack.

Save the drones, sneak them in a dark spot. Later on, use them to hunt the defenders, their gadgets, barbed wires or traps.

Utilize Echo’s Yokai or Valkyrie’s cameras to watch where the attackers are evolving from. The legitimate intel you can gain from these gadgets will serve you more than playing for kills.

Also, the whole game depends upon your movement. If you don’t know when to move and when to actually attack your enemies you’re going to have a hard time in the ranked matches. We’ve attached a short clip below to give the readers an idea of good movement. We kept everything calm and approached our opponents with ease.

Upgrade your hearing

Impeccably, you need a headset that supports 7.1 surround sound, as audio signals play a tremendous part in Rainbow Six Siege. Siege is regularly pitching a variety of audio signals at you to help you get the drop on nearby enemies.

For example, whenever a charge is set, the Operator will vocalize this: if you’re nearby enough you’ll hear it, you can blast through where they’re placing the charge to dismantle the equipment or for an easy kill.

It’s deserving perceiving that crouching or crawling make the slightest noise, but if you step on broken glass, it will make noise regardless, so this can be utilized to the advantage of a lurking enemy.

Roam whenever you can

For the utmost part, if you want to master Siege you’ll need to obtain a team experience, but a self-sufficient solo player can help a team get an initial edge, especially if they’re on the defending team. It’s beneficial if only one or two (max) players roam, but there are obvious kills to be determined early on if you punch holes in, say, a boarded-up window and shoot out at opponents that don’t know you’re there.

Furthermore, utilizing the cameras to spot where they’ve come in and circling out behind them is an excellent way to get cheap kills or take down shield bearers for a team that’s winning its time breaching into the area of interest. You can perceive a lot of kills roaming, but if the tactic is consistently ineffective against a savvy opponent, fall back to the default of applying a full-team defensive perimeter.

Pair your Operator to your team

There’s nothing critical than observing someone use Fuze throughout a hostage mission: it suggests that they plausibly won’t get to use his grenade-spamming particular ability, or they’ll adopt it and kill the hostage, resulting in an automated loss. More relevant, though, is pairing your Operator to what your team has selected.

Utilizing VOIP is an excellent way to settle what you want offensively or defensively, but there are some Operator staples that should always be added: Thermite for attackers, and Rook (armor boost) for defenders. Especially if you’re playing versus a team that employs specific tactics, there are often great counter combinations if you match the right Operators and counter-tactics.

Customize your loadout

Firstly, it’s adequate to favor unlocking Operators over customizing their weapons, but once you’ve got some attackers and defenders, begin investing in weapon customizations.

For my primary weapons (except for the shotgun), I always attach a scope, a compensator to help with recoil (or suppressor, for stealthy shots but reduced damage), and a front grip for a better handle.

I favor throwing a suppressor on my pistols because they’re great for silently taking out cameras, or playing stealthily if my primary weapon doesn’t have a silencer.

Be informed of your surroundings

Regularly take notes of your surroundings. Primarily don’t step in front of an area that a teammate is covering except if you’re on the other side and can create a lethal crossfire.

I’ve been killed through careless friendly players before or dealt damage to them when they’ve stepped in front of me while I’m attacking an opponent. Be attentive of walls that can be blasted behind or beside you, and try to dodge staying in the same position for too long if you’ve just been spotted, as skilled players will shoot you through the wall.

Defense is key

Having the best defenses in place is essential for victory. You might not have the idea of what Operators the enemy has at the start, but several teams use the identical ones round after round, so you can make safe assumptions. On top of this, there are always specific things you should be doing to make it difficult for your opponent to get inside your defensive boundary.

Take a player to reinforce any hatches above your position, and communicate with your team about which walls should be strengthened, and which ones should be left open. Blocking the entire team in a single room is unusually the best idea, particularly if you’re playing the defuse missions where you may be required to shift between two points.

Set obstacles for enemies

In the end, I’d like to mention that a lot of people try to “tryhard” way too much in ranked games of competitive shooters. The method to glory is to always stay patient and practice calculated risks to avoid failure. An insane play achieved with a cool mind has a higher chance of succeeding than one done while you’re raging at the enemy for killing your way too many times.

Good luck!
