Want to play Rainbow Six Siege? Here are the best tips on how to get started.

How to be useful to your team as a new player in Rainbow Six: Siege

Here are a few key things should do, even as a new player.

As a defender, remember to board up windows, doors and put up wall defenses to slow down attackers. Meanwhile, attackers will want to use their drone to search for the objective as its location changes with each round. Try to cover as much ground as possible, don’t just blindly follow your teammates.

Although learning operators and mastering their skills are the core part of the Siege experience, teamwork is what will ultimately get you across the line, without it you’ll go nowhere fast. Ideally, you’ll want to rope some friends in to play with you. If that’s not possible, fear not. The Siege community is incredibly open and friendly in comparison to other online shooters.

Don’t be afraid to use voice chat to ask questions, discuss tactics and coordinate with your team. You’ll learn far quicker just by chatting to your teammates, learning how best to communicate and coordinate attacks, as well as helping spot for teammates.

Most players understand how overwhelming the first few hours can be and will often be happy to help newcomers by giving advice and support through matches.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
