Born in Wroclaw, Zofia Bosak is the oldest daughter of Jan Bosak, former commander of the Polish Special Forces Unit GROM. While attending her father’s military high school, she was pressured to perform on every level – a burden her younger sister was not able to cope with.
During a school trip to the Masurian Lake District, Zofia was prey to a disturbing prank that almost cost her life. While she played in the lake, three boys from her class took turns trying to drown her, just for ‘fun’. This violent experience marked her with a deep mistrust of others. The following week, she has to sit beside her assailants in class. To deal with her growing anxiety, she decided to push her training further, and ensure she could rely on her skills for protection. Her father agreed to show her more ruthless techniques, given she would never question his methods.
When Zofia hit legal age, she enlisted in the army. Among Zofia’s most notable exploits is a rescue Operation in Guatemala, codenamed Red Agatha. A disastrous tropical storm formed a sinkhole in the middle of the city, swallowing an entire neighbourhood. Zofia was deployed to protect a team of scientists examining the perimeter. During a sudden landfall, she saved a child from disappearing into the abyss. To reward her ability to withstand hardships, Zofia received a medal and was promoted to Second Lieutenant.
Throughout her experiences, Zofia forged a second family overseas. to have more impact on the field, she learned to trust her squad mates with her life, reconsidering the cruel lesson from the incident at Lakeland. Far away from her father’s brutal training, Zofia let down her walls, developing close ties for the first time. She met her now-husband during a rogue operation in Mali, where they both mistook each other for hostiles.
Challenged by her squad mates on the field, she discovered the true kind of specialist she wanted to become. At the peak of her career, she flew back to Poland for her wedding ceremony. The celebration was kept short, but Zofia quickly returned to Wroclaw for her maternity leave. Her arrival in Poland was soon followed by her father’s sudden passing.
The birth of her daughter had a profound effect on Zofia, igniting her need to cocoon with her family – but Ela ignored her sister’s attempts to reconcile.
Zofia returned to the GROM soon after hearing Ela would pass the selection. Except for her attempts to reconnect with her sister, Zofia kept her distance with everyone else. Her squadron noticed this change and wondered if her recent obsession with her father’s pocket watch was a remnant of grief, or something more.
When Ela accepted the prestigious offer to join Team Rainbow, Zofia saw no reason to stay behind. Everything about the GROM now seemed to remind her of her father.
Three months later, Zofia became an official member of Team Rainbow.

How to use utility?
GRENADE TYPE INDICATION
IMPACT GRENADES USAGE
gaining vertical controlThanks to the ranged ability to breach through “soft” surfaces, Zofia can be a situational vertical breacher from both below and above.Just like Ash, Zofia is not the most adept at this role due to a limited number of openings that can be created using her utility.
opening new avenues to the objectiveImpact grenades are an excellent tool for opening new routes from the entry point to the objective, normally unavailable without explosives.
destroying defenders utilityZofia R6 operator’s impacts are an excellent tool for:
- destroying Maestro’s Evil eyes
- clearing out Castle’s barricades
- barbed wire
- and other potential utility placed in choke points
CONCUSSION GRENADES USAGE
intel gatheringShooting concussion grenade into the area gives intel about the enemy’s presence in a specific location. Detonation before the default timer expires indicates that the defender is present nearby. Knowing where a defender is not present can be just as useful as knowing where they are at!Important to note that the concussion grenade will not activate if the cover (such as a half wall or desk) is between the grenade and operator.
Concussing defenders gives attackers a significant advantage. It distorts the vision of the impacted operator, hard to distinguish audio, and lowers sensitivity (harder to aim).I recommend spacing concussion grenades in time when using on the same defender. Re-concussing resets the effect’s timer instead of extending it!Also, remember that your utility can concuss both attackers and defenders.
DRONE BEFORE USING GRENADES
- Breach denial utilityBy opening a line of sight above the area where utility is placed and shooting it down
- Mira’s Black MirrorsSimilarly by opening a line of sight from above or below to gas canister that ejects Mirror.
How to play -
Zofia R6 Siege
Hunting roamers minimizes risks of late-round flanks impacting negatively your final objective push.
As a fragger, you are expected to be decisive and not afraid to challenge defenders!
Furthermore, entry fraggers play a vital role in advancing attackers’ progress during the round in Siege. Progress is achieved by securing strategically essential locations, i.e., taking control of the room above the objective site, if the ceiling is covered with the destructible surface. Or being the first attacker to control areas frequently traversed by defenders to rotate to/from the objective.
ENTRY POINT CHOICE
Last but not least, entry fragger is more often than not the first attacker to push anchors hunkered down on the objective. I recommend that during the preparation phase in Rainbow Six Siege, you decide on your entry point depending on personal preferences, defensive setup & your team’s plan of attack.
Leaving your drone at your entry point will provide you with the right amount of initial intel. It is not uncommon for defenders to try to catch attackers off guard by setting up traps on entry points. You can neutralize the element of surprise for such a plan and prefire defenders (or avoid them) by knowing what they intend to do and where they are.
Zofia R6 operator is the closest we got to substituting Ash as THE fragger.
- excellent guns
- flexible utility – can be used for both soft breaching and flashing out defenders
She does require basic game sense and map knowledge to utilize her launcher to its full potential.

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.
