[Top 5] Rainbow 6 Siege Best Castle Loadouts

R6 Castle Best Loadouts
A Major Nuisance To Enemies. A Great Teammate To Have.


The American operator’s ability to replace soft barricades with bullet proof ones makes him an invaluable part of any defender team. His bullet proof armor panels can create choke points and block line of sights that attackers are comfortable with. And it’s not only his armor panels that puts his teammates’ minds at ease. His versatile loadout sets have also been proven to be advantageous when it comes to teamwork.

1. UMP45 SMG with 1.5x Scope, Extended Barrel, and Vertical Grip + Super Shorty Shotgun with Laser Under Barrel + Proximity Alarms

"Oh someone is already making rotation holes? Thank god I won't have to use my impact greade" -Your teammate definitely

With this loadout, you’ll be able to do a lot of things that your teammates will be thankful for. Rotation holes are very important in R6, and Castle, with his Super Shorty, can make them with ease. 

The handy proximity alarms not only alert you of nearby enemies, it can also deter their advance. Even the most experienced R6 players will think twice about proceeding with a push when detected by a proximity alarm.

The UMP45 SMG is one of the easiest guns to handle in Siege. It has low recoil and it only goes in a straight vertical line. Allowing you to shoot effectively even with minimal recoil control. The extended barrel will let your smg inflict its maximum damage even from long range, and with the 1.5x scope, you’ll be effective in any.

Excels in:

  • Anchor
  • Any range
  • Recon

2. UMP45 SMG with 1.5x Scope, Flash Hider, and Angled Grip + Super Shorty Shotgun with Laser Under Barrel + Proximity Alarms

Show your enemies your dead flicks. They might report you as hacking, but oh well.

This loadout is best for roaming, and when roaming, there are instances where you'll meet enemies at close range. When that happens, you'd thank the gods of gaming that you have a flash hider and angled grip attached to your primary.

The angled grip will allow you to aim down your sight much faster, and the flash hider greatly reduces the recoil of your first few shots. And, as the name implies, it hides the muzzle flash, making it more difficult for your enemies to know where they're being shot at. 

As always, you'll want to use the Super Shorty for creating rotation holes during the prep phase, but you'll also be glad to have it while you're roaming. With it at your disposal, you'll be able to create escape routes through soft walls and hatches.

Excels in:

  • Close to medium range
  • Roaming
  • Recon

3. M1014 Shotgun + Suppressed 5.7 USG Handgun + Proximity Alarms

Being killed by a shotgun is one of the most painful deaths in R6. Yes, they'll feel it across the screen.

This loadout is for players who are adept at using shotguns. Castle’s long barrel M1014 shotgun is effective at dealing damage even at medium range. With this, you’ll be a defensive menace, dealing lethal damage to enemies who come close when destroying your armor panels. And with the 5.7 USG handgun, you can use this loadout effectively for roaming as well.

The suppressor on your handgun is primarily for destroying attacker drones without alerting your enemies to your whereabouts.  

Excels in:

  • Close to medium range
  • Recon
  • Roaming

4. UMP45 SMG with Red Dot, Compensator, and Vertical Grip + Suppressed 5.7 USG Handgun + Proximity Alarms

Those proximity alarms are really annoying. Well, annoying for attackers. But a blessing for you.

This loadout excels in medium range. You'll only want to use this when there are others in your team that can create rotation holes. With this, you'll be giving up the ability to create holes, in favor of a more stealthy play.

Even without the Super Shorty to make escape routes. This loadout will still be effective in both roaming and anchoring. Always try to kill attacker drones with the suppressed 5.7 USG handgun so that the enemies won’t know where you’re at, and place the proximity alarms on areas where enemies usually come through.

Excels in:

  • Medium range
  • Suppressing fire
  • Anchoring

5. M1014 Shotgun + Super Shorty Shotgun with Laser Under Barrel + Bulletproof Camera

A very big f****** hole coming right up. Oh wait, we're supposed to be playing Castle, not Thermite. Nonetheless, you'll be opening up big holes on walls and into your enemies with this loadout.

For the shotgun fanatics and those who love going for maximum close-range superiority. A gift to those who have quick and accurate flicks. The most conventional way of using this loadout is to surprise those who are attempting to destroy your armor panels. But to those who are not afraid to venture into danger, this loadout is also effective for roaming.

For roaming, you’d want to get as close to your unsuspecting targets as possible before leaping into action for the surprise attack. That is where your bulletproof camera will come into play. Place it in the area where you expect enemies to come through, and it will help you decide if the time is right to spring the surprise.

Excels in:

  • Close range
  • Recon
  • Flanking
