Buck R6 Siege
- non-vital utility
In Rainbow Six Siege Buck’s utility can make a massive difference in the outcome of the round. He is, however, not a vital operator like Thermite or Thatcher, without whom specific tasks may not be completed which changes how round goes completely.
- powerful weapon if being able to control recoil
C8 kicks hard, but when used by skilled player can be extremely useful in engagements with defenders
- unique utility which can be used to kill defenders at a close range
Buck has basically two primary weapons thanks to skeleton key. He can use C8 or CAMRs on long-range and shotgun in very close range engagements
being able to open a new angle on the defender with skeleton key
Skeleton key gives Buck the ability to surprise a roamer or anchor by creating an unexpected angle through wall or ceilings.
He can also quickly swap to the primary weapon from the skeleton key, giving little time to react for a defender in such a scenario.
- access to Stun grenades
Stun provide the ability to flush out fortified defender
- Two- speed & two-armor rating giving him the flexibility
- C8 having hard to control recoil
C8 kicks like hell, thus requiring practice and high recoil controlling skill to be effective
- requires advanced map knowledge and experience
His role in the attack is mainly to create vertical control. Knowing which spots to open with skeleton key is hard for new players. Inexperienced players may not know the map good enough nor usually occupied defensive positions
