The best Rainbow Six Siege Operators keep changing thanks to regular updates and an influx of new characters. Each offers various strategies and loadouts that can be used to navigate the various maps and environments.
We’ve reviewed the top Defenders and Attackers of 2020 R6 ahead of Sam Fisher’s inclusion next month.
Rainbow Six Siege Attackers
The Hard Breachers: Ace/Hibana/Thermite
Ace, Hibana, and Thermite have a reputation for tearing down reinforced walls and creating a hole large enough to pass through.
Both Ace’s Aqua Charges and Hibana’s pellets can be used from a distance. They can safely bow up reinforced walls and not have to be touched. Ace’s tool’s staccato deployment can often signify enemy origin, while Hibana’s high-pitched explosives are quicker.
On the other hand, Thermite can be used to plant a thermobaric C4 charge that can turn a wall into splinterings within seconds. It is quieter than the other two. The tool can be used to stick the adhesive explosive to walls by walking close to it. This is a great way to surprise your enemy.
The Soft Breachers: Ash/ Sledge/ Buck
These three are attracted to any wall, ceiling, or floor that lacks reinforcement panels. Sled and Buck can cause havoc with their underslung shotguns and sledgehammer, while Ash’s grenade rocketer can demolish any soft wall or Defender gadgets from afar.
These soft breachers are versatile and can move fast, blitzkrieg any objective room, and creating holes in seconds.
The Utilitarians – Maverick/Thatcher / Montagne
It’s more than just attacking in Siege. Operators like Thatcher can help because Defenders have many gadgets that can make it difficult for them to get into the objective rooms. His EMP grenades are capable of disabling or disabling almost every electronic gadget in the game. This means that all tools intended to neutralize attackers’ arsenal can be disabled. You’ll be able to enter the objective room, but the enemy will have a harder job shooting you.
Montagne is a giant with an unbreakable shield and can turn any entrance point into Darth Vader’s corridor scene in Rogue One. He can be the crucible for pushing into enemy territory while his team safely takes out his enemies behind his shield. This is a supporting role that can be very satisfying when it works out.
Maverick is more of an aggressor than a support person. His blowtorch can even burn through reinforced surfaces so that he can shoot people from unusual angles. His torch can be used to make a person-sized entranceway. However, it is best to use the torch creatively.
