Rainbow Six Siege today is a completely different game than the one we saw back in the end of 2015. After many updates containing new maps, operators and overall improvements to the game, Siege has become an exceptional competitive FPS. While the core gameplay hasn’t changed much since the game released, it is safe to say that almost all other aspects have been tweaked and updated for the better.
Every step needs to be thought out and planned with your team. Communication with your teammates is a must and can be done using either voice chat or placing markers. A simple heads up or marker really make the difference between winning and losing the round especially in the last minute. The learning curve is insanely steep and is one of the hardest in any game and especially in a shooter. On the bright side, a new lesson is learned every time you die. Also, knowing the maps is absolutely essential if you wanna play at even a decently moderate level. Knowing where to set your crosshairs when you peak corners and which walls/floors you can shoot through will make you absolutely demolish any team that doesn’t.
All gamemodes play extremely similar but have somewhat different objectives. A team of attackers must invade an area to either disarm a bomb or save hostages while defenders set traps and prepare to keep them at bay. With each match being 5v5, players have less than four minutes per round to secure their objective, with each team needing to win at least three rounds to win the match. You can get eliminated in an instant if you are not careful enough and this will put you out for the rest of the round. Thankfully, you can still help your teammates out even after you are eliminated by using the cameras available.
Rainbow Six Siege currently offers 48 Operators (24 for attacking and 24 for defending)which you choose from at the beginning of each round. Some of these operators are already available to owners of the base game whereas the newer ones must be purchased using the in-game currency. While the META changes constantly, there isn’t a single best operator for every situation. Picking an attacker or defender in Siege is a matter of weighing objective location, your opponent, and the overall lineup of your team.
Overall, Rainbow Six Siege has become one of the greatest tactical competitive FPS available today. Thanks to the continuous addition of new content and improvements through updates, Siege manages to attract newcomers while also keeping old players entertained throughout the years. Seldom do we see games that undergo such a positive transformation after release and still stay relevant for more than 3 years.
