Detailed information on how to play Gridlock R6 Siege operator
What is the utility?
Rainbow Six Siege Gridlock’s Stingers are throwable “grenades” that once deployed serve as attackers’ form of Barbed Wires, with function from utility perspective similar to Nomad’s Airjabs – area denial and flank prevention.
- deals 10 damage
- slows down impacted operator
- makes noise
- during the deployment phaseDestroying a central patch before deployment of additional traps will stop the process.If the deployment is in process, defenders will have to destroy the central patch and any additional patches to prevent a further generation of Stingers.
- once the deployment is completedDestroying Stingers results in creating noise and is likely to warn nearby attackers.
How to use utility?
- hold the button – allows precise aiming as Tori will throw Stinger upon release of the button
- release immediately – to throw the trap at a centered location
- retake objective
- disable defuser
- use rotations
defenders location & available routesWhen placing traps, you should always consider where defenders currently are and which paths they can use.Try to plan the course of action ahead of time. Place traps to help you cover angle you do not intend to hold or that will give you an advantage if you decide to do so.
maximum area coverageBear in mind spawning mechanic and hexagonal shape when throwing your trap.Each Stinger can deploy up to 19 patches, so you want to make sure you can get the best coverage out of your trap.
ability to capitalize with a kill on the trapSo many times, I have seen attackers leaving traps and then totally forgetting about them, without being present anywhere close to Stingers.When it comes to flank prevention, Gridlock R6 operator’s traps should be considered as flank watch enhancement and not a sole way of preventing it.Unlike Claymores, triggering Gridlock’s utility does not guarantee to injure or kill caught defender. Therefore, you need someone to be relatively close to traps to gain an advantage.Capitalizing on traps placed in objective as an area denial tool is much easier. This is due to the objective being the center of the attention by the time you place Trax.
force defenders to expose themselvesAs mentioned defenders can shoot your traps during deployment to prevent further spawning of patches. Consider angles available to the closest defender(s) when throwing Stinger and try to place it in a way that defender has to get out of cover to get LoS on your utility.
destroy trapsBy choosing such action defenders risk notifying nearby attackers about upcoming flank, thus eliminating the element of surprise. The surprise is one of the most significant advantages flanking operator usually has
trigger the trapSuch an outcome will result in both damage to a defender and making noise, which may notify nearby attackers
abort or choose a different routeThis might be the right course of action for the flanking defender. Continuing flank, regardless of risks, may result in easy death. Instead, flanker may choose another route, if available.Likewise, anchoring defender may choose different entrances to objective or create such.
Using Stingers as bait.
Trap vertical deployment.
- flank watch
- defuser cover
Stingers can be destroyed by:
One bullet destroys patch.
Such counter results in noise creation even when gun uses a suppressor
throwing explosives at them
1 Nitro Cell or Impact grenade may destroy most (and sometimes even all) deployed patches. It is the fastest, but also the loudest way of destroying Stingers
- hitting patch with melee
Trap does not deal damage when destroyed with melee, but still makes some noise that may alert nearby attackers

Loadout guide -
Gridlock R6 Siege
The charge allows opening a hole in unreinforced walls, hatches, and barricades.
Grenade releasing a cloud of smoke, which is almost impossible to see through. It gives the advantage to players by preventing line of sight.
Loadout choices are an individual aspect, and rarely there is a “go-to” loadout in R6 Siege.
Sight choices are purely personal and depend on the player’s playstyle, map, even objective & specific role.
Please treat the below suggestion as what it is – our preferences.
We encourage you to experiment to find your setup.
Remember, just because something works for someone else, does not mean it has to and will work for you!
