3 Steps for beginners in Rainbow Six Siege


Rainbow Six Siege is a shooting game that consist of playing on two teams of five members.  Each person playing gets to pick a different operator or character that has their own specialty.  There are three game modes called Situations, Multiplayer, and Terrorist Hunt.

Situations are the introduction to the game.  They each take place on a different map and with a different operator.  They each have their own theme that matches with a multiplayer mode.

Multiplayer is the main mode played in Rainbow Six Siege.  It consists of three modes called Bomb, Secure, and Hostage.

In Bomb mode one attacking team member has the defuser.  To win the round you have to either defuse the bomb or kill of the defenders.  If you are one of the defenders you have to kill all of the attacker before they plant the defuser or you have to stop the defuser before it is done.

In secure you just have to secure a specific room before a member of the opposite team is in the room.  You can sometimes win by securing the room, but most of the time you win by killing the other team.

In hostage the attackers have to steal the hostage from the defenders.  This adds a whole other element to the game, because it is possible to lose the round by accidentally killing the hostage.


These steps are based on what I have noticed helped me as I first started to play Rainbow Six Siege, and as I continue to play it.

1. Situations

Completing the situations is the first step to learning how to play Rainbow Six Siege.  It enables you to learn how to use the controls without a constant fear of being killed.  It also helps to familiarize you with each map, gun, and operator.

After you have completed all of the situations it is important to go back to them and complete the star challenges.  These challenges add another layer of difficulty to the challenges and also give you a more renown for completing them.

2. Solo Terrorist Hunt

Once you have completed all of the Situations with three stars on each you should start playing some terrorist hunt on the lone wolf setting.  After you are able to beat it consistently then you should turn off aim assist.  Aim assist makes you automatically hit the enemies, but it is not in multiplayer so turning it off will prepare you for multiplayer.

3. Multiplayer

After you have been completing Terrorist Hunt by yourself consistently without aim assist you will have much more success in multiplayer than if you just went straight to it.  Just make sure to remember that it is all about having a better line of sight and angle on the enemy than they have on you.  It is also important to make sure to lean when necessary to give you these better angles.  Headphones are also important so that you can hear where the enemy is at before you see them.



Rainbow Six Siege Improvements

I have continued to play more Rainbow Six Siege and I have noticed some things that have been fixed by operation health and some issues that still need fixed.

Operation health is where the developers of Rainbow Six Siege decided to focus on overall improvements to the game instead of more DLC this quarter.  For example they changed matchmaking to just one step so that it is quicker and more efficient for getting in to play a game.  They also improved the hitboxes so that the game is more fair no matter which operator you choose.  They even added alpha packs that contain: gun skins, charms, head gear, and outfits.

Although these improvements have helped to make the game more enjoyable there are still some more improvements that should be made.  One improvement should be that you get enough points for each kill that whoever has the most kills on a team will have the most points overall.  They also need to find a way to reduce team killing at least on the Xbox One, since almost every time I play I end up getting team killed.

It will also be interesting to see what new operators and map they add for the upcoming DLC in a few weeks.
