Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege has quickly become one of the most popular first-person shooters, rivaling even the vaunted Call of Duty series. And there's a good reason for its success: It is the most tactical shooter on the market. This isn't a game that rewards reckless play or blind shooting. Rather, it's game of patience and waiting to take the best shot, which is why the game can be a bit of culture shock for newbies. These Rainbow Six Siege tips will cover some of the basics from clearing a room using the slice-the-pie technique to effectively using traps to up your kill count.
While Rainbow Six Siege looks like any old first-person shooter, where the run-and-gun approach is sometimes best, there’s actually much more to the hyper-realistic, strategy-based game. Rushing in guns blazing will get your character killed immediately. You’ll need to take a methodical approach to defending or attacking a bomb site, and the pros competing on the game’s esports circuit know this better than anyone.
