The mobile version of Rainbow Six Siege has been grabbing a lot of attention since its release. Ubisoft’s latest mobile game, titled Rainbow Six Mobile is heavily inspired by Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, although it is not a complete copy of the game. In this beginners guide, we will be talking about the basics of Rainbow Six Mobile ie Objective, Operators, and some Tips and Tricks to help you understand the basic strategies, faster and better.
Introducing the Basics of Rainbow Six Mobile
Rainbow Six Siege is a 5v5 tactical FPS shooter that became popular due to its strategic approach and level of competitiveness, and its mobile variant seems to follow its footsteps as the game style of Rainbow Six Mobile is no different. Speaking about the basics of the brand new title, let us start with the objectives in the game.
The objective in Rainbow Six Mobile is like any other Search n Destroy mode, wherein players have to either complete the given task within a certain period of time or take down all enemies to win a round. Two teams with five players on each side will battle it out in a Best of 3 Classic Mix mode, and both teams will have a separate objective to complete.
The objective of Attackers is to plant the Defuser in the bombsites A or B or eliminate the enemies, whereas the objective of the Defenders is to disable the Defuser if planted or eliminate all their enemies.
Rainbow Six Mobile features three maps from Siege – Bank, Border, and the recently added Clubhouse. These maps have been slightly modified and heavily optimized to ensure a lag-free experience on the mobile platform. The Bank features two floors, a basement, and a roof. This map is heavily fortified with many close corners and small rooms.
The Border map consists of a mix of old and new construction and open-air pathways, hence being one of the most destructible and open maps in the game. And finally, the Clubhouse, featuring a full bar, gaming tables, and leather furniture, this mixed layout offers a host of interesting tactical possibilities for both the Attackers and Defenders.
Talking about modes, Bomb is the only game mode that has been made available, with the Secure Area mode expected to release soon. In the Bomb mode, two bombs lie in both the bombsites A and B. The Defuser lies in front of the Attackers during the Preparation Phase, and it can be picked up by anyone from the team.
The goal of the Attackers in this game mode is to carry the Defuser and plant it in either of the bombsites. Once planted, the Defuser will take about 45 seconds to defuse the bomb. The goal of the Defenders jumps in here as it is their duty to ensure that the Defuser does not defuse the bomb.
In order to stop it, Defenders have to go towards the Defuser and disable the Defuser that is already planted. A round is won by the Attackers if the Defuser has defused the bomb, or if all the enemies are eliminated, similarly, a round is won by the Defenders if they successfully disable the Defuser, or have eliminated all the enemies.
Understanding the Operators
Characters in Rainbow Six Mobile are referred to as Operators. Operators have unique weapons, gadgets, and abilities that make almost each one of their purpose different from each other. There are plenty of Operators available in the game at present, classified into two groups namely Attackers and Defenders. The list of the available Operators can be found here.
Mastering the Perks
Both the Attackers and Defenders each have special perks that play a major role in creating a huge difference. The Attackers have the privilege to use a controllable drone that can be used to move around the map and scout for enemies during the preparation phase of a match. This drone can move to any direction, rotate its view, and scan enemies to alert the player of their location.
By knowing enemies’ location, one can easily alert his teammates and play strategically. The drone can be destroyed by the Defenders if the drone is noticed, hence, make sure to read the final segment of this article to learn to prevent it.
The Defenders, on the other hand, have full authority to access the CCTV cameras located in different spots around the map. These cameras act similar to Attacker’s drones and can be used to scan enemies within their radar. It has a fixed radius, and Defenders can switch to any camera to scan an area. The CCTV can also be destroyed by the Attackers, but unlike the drone, the CCTV cannot be protected.
Rainbow Six Mobile Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks
Rainbow Six Mobile is one of the most difficult games to master on mobile. Learning the game is a time-taking process and will consume many hours to get the hang of it. Hence, we bring to you some basic Tips and Tricks that would push you through the process at a faster rate.
1. Practice shooting with the side aim option
The highlight of Rainbow Six Mobile is the ability to aim towards the left or right by peeking. This gives a massive advantage against a player who aims straight, as he will not have any cover by doing so. Many Esports players are also seen using this feature, thus, it is highly recommended to put this feature to great use.
2. Teammates can be revived
Even though it may be a Multiplayer game, Rainbow Six Mobile players have the option to revive their teammates when they are knocked down. It would be easy for a player to revive his teammate if the team sticks together, hence assuring the player that he wouldn’t have to worry about himself. Once revived, the revived player will receive 50 HP to continue in the battle.
3. Utilize the drones and CCTV
For the Attackers, do not underestimate the value of the drone. It is capable of providing a lot of Intel for the team and could possibly be a game-changer at any point in the game. For this to happen, scout for enemies during the Preparation Phase, and when the round is about to begin, move it towards a secure place where the enemies won’t be able to find it. This way, players can control the drone during the round as well.
For the Defenders, use the CCTV cameras located in different parts of the map to scout the Attackers. The CCTV is used as a source of Intel, and can also be used to confirm if a particular area has no Attackers around, or is safe enough for Defenders to move in, within its radius.
4. Place barricades and reinforcements wherever necessary
A Barricade is wooden equipment used by Defenders to block doors and windows, and fortify defenses for an area. It blocks the enemy’s line of sight, allowing Defenders to have a slight edge. These Barricades can be easily breached, but as it creates some noise while doing so, Defenders will be aware of the enemy’s position. With Defenders having unlimited Barricades, place them in doors and windows where enemies are expected to come from.
Reinforcements are large metal coverings that can be placed on breachable walls. They have the ability to withstand any explosives, except for the gadgets owned by a few certain Operators (Thermite and Hibana). Every Defender gets at least one reinforcement each; using them at vital areas near the objective decreases the chances of the Attackers entering the objective and completing their task.
From personal experience, Rainbow Six Mobile seems to be highly competitive from the get-go. Something that must be highly regarded in the title is the team. The developer and community managers of Rainbow Six Mobile are extremely active on social media and they always keep the community in the loop by answering queries and providing news on any updates and bug fixes on a regular basis.
Popular content creators like ImOw, 1ceStream, and others have started to stream and post Rainbow Six Mobile-related content, and a lot of players are extremely excited and at the same time, hoping to receive access to play the game.
