[Top 5] Rainbow 6 Siege Best Hibana Loadouts

Rainbow Six Siege Hibana Loadouts
Ah yes, Siege’s “anime girl” and Pulse’s waifu.

One of the game’s hard breachers. Her gadget, the X-Kairos, may work slower than other hard breaching devices like Thermite’s or Ace’s, but since it can be separated into three charges, it’s more effective in other circumstances, like breaching reinforced hatches or just making small gaps through reinforced walls for throwing over grenades and other gadgets to defenders. Aside from her X-Kairos, Yumiko “Hibana” Imagawa, comes with a lot of heat with the weapon choices she has available to her.


5. Supernova with Laser + Bearing 9 with Holographic and Flash Hider + Stun Grenades

Pump action always means that the shotgun is nasty

The supernova, a pump action shotgun, used to be available only to the Japanese operators, is one of the best shotguns in the game. With 48 damage, it packs a heavy punch and with good recoil control. And with the laser tightening the pellet spread when hip firing, this loadout is perfect for players who are well practiced with shotguns.

With this loadout, it’s best to treat the Bearing 9 as your primary and have it at the ready most of the time and only switch to the supernova shotgun when enemies are near. That way the laser on your supernova won’t give away your position to the enemies.

Excels in:

  • Close range


4. TYPE-89 with 2.5x Scope, Compensator, and Vertical Grip + P229 with Suppressor + Stun Grenades

I stand by it. The P229 is the best handgun in the game.

The P229 handgun, originally exclusive to the Japanese operators Hibana and Echo, and now available to Goyo as well, is this author’s favorite handgun in the game. It has a high damage at 42, and a very easy to control recoil. The sound it makes especially when it’s attached with the suppressor is pleasant to the ears as well. With the P229 equipped with a suppressor, you can shoot defender cameras and other gadgets without alerting your enemies.

The Type-89 is an assault rifle available only to Hibana. Its recoil is quite tricky to control because it doesn’t just go into a straight vertical pattern. And when it comes to guns like that, the compensator, which reduces the recoil diamond of guns, is a great attachment for overall recoil control. 

Excels in:

  • Medium to long range


3. TYPE-89 with 2.5x Scope, Suppressor, and Vertical Grip + Bearing 9 with Holographic, Flash Hider, and Laser + Stun Grenades

Stealthily as ninjas go

With a suppressor on your TYPE-89, you can use it to shoot defender cameras and other gadgets instead of a suppressed handgun. So, for this loadout, you’ll be going with the bearing 9 as your secondary instead of the p229. Partnered with a 2.5x scope, the TYPE-89 can provide excellent long-range support to your teammates, and because of the suppressor, you’ll be strafing at enemies without them getting the directional threat indicator, and that will prevent them from mounting an immediate counter fire.

Excels in:

  • Medium to long range
  • Stealth


2. TYPE-89 with 1.5x Scope, Flash Hider, and Vertical Grip + P229 with Suppressor + Stun Grenades

A menace on choke points

With the Type-89 equipped with a 1.5x scope, you’ll be making it a more effective assault rifle when it comes to close to medium range. This loadout is great for maps like the favela where there’s a lot of choke points, meaning there’s going to be more close-range encounters. And because you’ll be expecting sudden close-range encounters, you’ll be attaching a flash hider instead of a compensator to your Type-89. The flash hider is great for controlling the recoil of quick and short burst fire.

Excels in:

  • Close to medium range


1. TYPE-89 with 2.5x Scope, Flash Hider, and Vertical Grip + P229 with Suppressor + Stun Grenades

High risk high reward

This loadout is perfect for players who are used to making kills in close range with flick shots even with the 2.5x scope. Meaning experienced players. Once you’ve mastered the art of using the 2.5x scope, formerly known as the ACOG, this is gonna be the best loadout for you when it comes to using Hibana. Because with it, you can be effective in medium to long range, as well as close range as long as you’re well practiced. 

With this loadout, you’ll want to stick to short bursts of fire because that’s what the flash hider specializes in controlling. The good thing is that the flash hider will hide the muzzle flash of your gun, preventing your enemies from visually realizing where the shots are coming from immediately. It will also hide the muzzle flash for you, making your screen clearer while you’re shooting.

And even with the Type-89's tricky recoil control, with the stun grenades popped on strategic positions, you’ll be an effective entry fragger with Hibana.

Excels in:

  • Medium to long range
