Rainbow Six Siege is a complex shooter - perhaps one of the most intricately designed multiplayer games being played right now. The depth comes from numerous places: the destructible environments, the design of the maps, but primarily from the unique gadgets, stats, and loadouts offered by each of its playable operators. But what are the best Rainbow Six Siege operators? We have been training with Tom Clancy’s elite troopers in order to find out.

Owing to the game’s asymmetric multiplayer gameplay, Rainbow Six Siege operators come in two flavours: attackers and defenders. Currently, there are 36 Rainbow Six Siege operators to unlock and use in the game, which breaks down neatly into 18 operators for each side. You will also have to unlock operators using in-game currency that you can earn through completing matches and ticking off daily challenges, so it is good to know which ones to snap up first in order to make collecting the remaining operators even faster.
