Jumping into Rainbow Six Siege is a nerve-wracking experience for many players. The game can feel like a horror game for new players in the first few matches. Luckily, there are a lot of resources out there for newcomers and many of them present information in fun and engaging ways.
One of the best resources for learning the game is content creators. And while the content creators listed below are not professional players, they do have a lot of great Siege wisdom to pass along to players looking to improve their everyday game. Each creator listed has a specific reason why they’re on this list. From map knowledge, to how recoil patterns effect gameplay, these content creators have entry-level players covered.
Get_Flanked’s channel is full of great lessons for Siege players of any level, especially beginners. On the channel, players can find a wealth of in-depth “how to” videos. While there are a lot of content creators out there, Get_Flanked goes to great lengths to provide explanations for everything covered in any given video. Get_Flanked has also been prominently featured on R6 Academy, which adds a great deal of credibility to the work the creator puts out.
There’s a hesitance in people’s willingness to study a memer, but BikiniBodhi unknowingly teaches his viewers an important lesson in every video he posts: take risks. The only way to get better at anything in life is to try and try again. Taking risks is a huge part of learning what you are capable of and where your limits are applied.
In Siege, playing it safe for beginners often leads to low-risk, low-reward gameplay that is pretty demoralizing. What BikiniBodhi does that makes him a noteworthy content creator is that he is constantly taking risks. Sure, these risks are in the form of trolls and whacky tactics, but the meme strategies can be an inspiration to try new things. If you need any proof, you can watch Léo “Alphama” Robine use the BikiniBodhi Clash strategy to clutch up in round nine.
While Macie Jay has his fair share of off days, there is no denying that his map knowledge is impeccable. Map knowledge is one of the most important skills to hone in Siege and there’s really no alternative to this skill. A player could be a fantastic fragger, but it would mean nothing without map knowledge.
Fans can learn a lot about rotations and flank routes from Macie Jay, and it’s mainly because of his map knowledge. Macie Jay—like Get_Flanked—also explains certain aspects of maps that not many other content creators bother to go over in their videos. If you’re having trouble getting used to maps, just watch a few Macie Jay videos to understand how you should be studying maps.
For players looking to better understand the inner-workings of Siege, Rogue-9’s channel is full of in-depth mechanic analysis and test videos. Don’t know the difference between a compensator and a flash hider? Rogue-9 has a video. Having a hard time adjusting to recoil patterns? Rogue-9 has a video for that, too.
The content found on Rogue-9’s channel is technical, informative, and allows players to better understand the game they’re playing. While the content is somewhat dry, there is no doubt that it is useful content that Rogue-9 provides free of charge. Understanding a loadout is crucial to success in Siege and these videos can really help new players grasp some of the more intricate facets of Siege’s mechanics.
