Ways To Play
Practice Before Playing
It is good practice to first warm up a bit before playing in multiplayer mode. You can do that in the Terrorist Hunt mode where you play against AI enemies instead of other humans. In that mode, you can practice shooting stationary targets as well as moving ones.
Check Out The Surroundings
Always pay attention to the barricade to see if enemies are behind it before breaching doors. Also, when you enter a room, scan the corners and fire at places that enemies may be hiding to preempt their attacks.
Pay Attention To Sounds
All in all, the sounds in Rainbow Six: Siege prove essential for your survival. For example, the footsteps of enemies will get louder as they get closer to you.
Learn How To Interrupt Reload
It is not safe to load your weapon in the presence of enemies as that will put you in harm’s way. You can cancel a reload when you run into enemies by sprinting. The moment you manage to put enough distance between you and your enemies, feel free to reload your weapon.
Play Custom Games With Friends
Create a custom game from the map and master it with your friends. By doing so, you can experiment with strategies. Maintain communication with your friends and test out your strategies as you play. (Viagra)
Take Settings Into Account
The way you configure the setting of your game and gaming console can go a long way toward bringing your team to victories. For example, if you use the Advanced Gadget Deployment feature, it will come in handy when you come across enemies and have to take action quickly. If you play with a console, lower the dead zones of your analog stick to reduce the pressure you need to apply to the stick to move. Also, increase the sensitivity of your console so that your response time to react can be faster.
Make Use Of Drones
It’s wise to use drones to monitor the layout of the environment and the position of the enemies before moving into the area. That is going to tell you what to expect and prepare accordingly.
