10. Jackal

Siege is a very tactical game where intel plays a crucial part, and Jackal is one of the best attackers when it comes to intel gathering. It’s no wonder really that after many years, he’s still one of the most banned operators in the game. His special gadget allows him to track enemy footprints and when he scans a footprint trail, he can reveal the location of that particular enemy to the whole team. This ability is really OP since it also allows him to avoid roamers by seeing if a roamer has passed by a particular area. On top of that, he even has a claymore to cover his back. And when partnered with a Dokkaebi and a Lion, it’s almost a guarantee that the enemy roamer will be neutralized.

Excels in:

  • Intel gathering
  • Crowd control
  • Anti-roamer

Best loadouts for Jackal:



9. Fuze

Positioning is key in Siege and Fuze is one of the best at ruining the positioning of the anchoring defenders because they will either have to run from his cluster charges, or die. Smart Fuze players use his cluster charges, not really to aim for a kill but to direct enemy movement to where they would be more vulnerable to his or his teammate’s gunfire. Fuze’s cluster charge is also one of the best special gadgets in the game for destroying defender gadgets en masse. So, when Thatcher is banned and the opponents are in the basement, Fuze is a really great alternative.

Excels in:

  • Gadget destruction
  • Providing distraction
  • Flushing out enemies
  • Pushing

Best loadouts for Fuze:



8. Iana

As I’ve said above, intel is crucial in Siege gameplay, and Iana is not only one of the best intel gatherers, she’s also one of the best entry-fraggers. The G36C in her loadout is an indication of that. With Jackal, it’s best to coordinate with the whole team, but Iana can also excel at being the flanker or crowd control. With her Gemini Replicator, she can send a holographic copy of herself that she can use for scouting and confusing enemies. And once she has intel on an enemy’s whereabouts, she can get the kill with a straight up gunfight, or through her frag grenades. And frag grenade throws usually get the kill when partnered with good intel.

Excels in:

  • Intel gathering
  • Distracting enemies
  • Entry fragging 

Best loadouts for Iana:



7. Flores

Like Fuze above, Flores through his exploding drones can force defenders out of the positions they’re comfortable with, effectively ruining their rhythm and strategy. This is truly one of the most OP abilities in the game, especially in the hands of a player who’s great at multitasking. Each of his exploding drones have the same power as a nitro cell, so it’s also great for soft breaching and destroying enemy gadgets. Not to mention that in the process, he’s also gathering intel. And of course, while doing all of that, he can also protect himself from runouts with a claymore.

Excels in:

  • Pushing
  • Intel gathering
  • Gadget destruction

Best loadouts for Flores:



6. Gridlock

As mentioned above, positioning is key in Siege, and if Fuze and Flores excel at forcing defenders to move out of their hiding places, Gridlock can force them to stay in an area, which can be equally detrimental to them. She can use her trax stingers to prevent roamers from getting her and her team from behind, and she can also use them to create choke points, in order to prevent enemies from flanking or rotating. Gridlock’s trax stingers are some of the most troublesome special gadgets in the game for Defenders, because for them to be destroyed, defenders will have to shoot them. Walking over them is not really an option because they deal a lot of damage when you step over them. Aside from her trax stingers, she also has great primary guns which have low recoil, a shotgun which she can use for soft breaching, and a smoke grenade that can cover her trax stingers or a plant attempt.

Excels in:

  • Area denial
  • Roamer and flanker denial
  • Pushing and bomb planting

Best Gridlock loadouts:



5. Buck

To be able to do an almost unlimited soft breach is a pretty OP ability, and Buck has it. Yes, Sledge has it too, but because he has to be in very close proximity to do it, he can leave himself vulnerable to enemy counter attack, especially with a nitro cell. Buck’s under barrel shotgun allows him to do vertical soft breaching from a safe distance. Buck’s under barrel is one of the most destructive shotguns in the game, and even with just two shots can make a very quick entry hole, or large holes on wooden floors, leaving defenders more exposed from attacks from above or below. And Buck with just one tap of the mouse scroll or the number 4 key, can quickly switch from his assault rifle or marksman rifle into his under barrel shotgun. This is truly one of the most OP abilities in Siege and Buck mains love to take advantage of it.

Excels in:

  • Any range
  • Quick creation of entry holes
  • High firepower

Best loadout for Buck:



4. Zofia

Probably the most offense-heavy operator on the attacker side, she’s still pretty OP even with the removal of her Withstand ability, especially now that they even improved the recoil of her M762 assault rifle which is a very powerful gun. Her other primary gun, the LMG-E, is one of the best light machine guns in the game in that it inflicts heavy damage with low recoil and huge bullet capacity. She can also protect her back with a claymore, making her one of the best roamer hunters in the game. And of course, she has her special gadget, the KS79 Lifeline which allows her to fire two impact grenades and two concussion ones. She can use it for a quick soft breach and for concussing enemies that are hiding in corners. A good Zofia player is really hard to stop in a straight up on-one-one encounter.

Excels in:

  • Entry fragging
  • Rushing
  • Flanking

Best loadouts for Zofia:



3. Finka

A rushing coordinated team with a Finka for support is very hard to stop, because her adrenal surge effectively toughens up her whole team alongside buffs like being able to walk over barbed wires faster, lesser tinnitus effects, lesser effectiveness of blindness from stun grenades, removing or lessening concussion effects, and even faster reload times. That’s really OP because not only does it increase the toughness of the whole team, it also increases their offensive capabilities. And now, Finka can even activate her adrenal surge when she’s down. Allowing her to revive herself and any other downed teammate. 

Excels in:

  • Buffs
  • Healing and reviving
  • Close to medium range

Best loadouts for Finka:



2. Capitao

Capitao is a really great operator to have in the team for a coordinated push and plant strat. He has two smoke bombs which he can use to block enemy sight in order for him and his teammates to maneuver into the objective area with added cover. He also has two fire bombs which can deny a large area to the enemy. Those two abilities already make Capitao pretty OP, but on top of those two, he also has a powerful yet stable assault rifle, and he can protect himself and the whole team from flankers or roamers with his claymore. Truly versatile and great for high IQ plays operator.

Excels in:

  • Area denial
  • Vision denial
  • Allow his team to push

Best Capitao loadouts:



1. Dokkaebi

Well, aside from her good looks, there’s a reason why Dokkaebi is a favorite of Ubisoft to be featured in R6 cinematics. It’s because she’s a player-favorite. And she’s a player favorite because she’s one of the most powerful operators in the game. One that can both gather intel and deny it. Her logic bomb forcefully calls the Defenders mobile phones, compromising their locations. And while that call is being made, surveillance cameras will be unavailable to Defenders. She can also hack a dead defender’s phone, giving her and her team access to Defender cameras including special gadgets like Maestro’s Evil Eyes and the Black Eyes of Valkyrie. And aside from her intel denying and gathering capabilities, her offensive ones aren’t to be slept on either, because her Mk 14 EBR is a great marksman rifle which is perfectly complemented by her SMG-12 for short range.

Excels in:

  • Intel gathering
  • Enemy rhythm disruption
  • Causing panic
