Detailed information on how to play Mira R6 Siege operator
What is the utility?
Why is Mira not overpowered?
That’s because Black Mirrors can be countered in many ways. And once countered, mirrors provide a significant disadvantage to defenders.
How to use utility?
Reinforced wallHard breachers can destroy mirrors as they are the only ones to breach through reinforcements.
Best to be used when there’s a “soft” wall (can be shot through) next to Mirror or open space (like a doorway).
When placed on unreinforced wall Mirrors can be countered by the destruction of the wall they are placed on. As a result, operators like Ash and Zofia can deal with them.
Un-reinforced walls Mirror placement is usually done on the crouch level. Thanks to crouch placement player behind Mirror can shoot from the above Mirror. We can achieve such placement with a single “soft” wall without a doorway or other soft wall right next to it.
THE Y6S2 NERF – SHATTERED GLASS
With the introduction of glass shattering mechanics to Rainbow Six Siege in Operation North Star, proper positioning of Black Mirrors become more important than ever!
Previously you could get away with a Black Mirror where enemies were able to get in close proximity to the gadget. Now, such placement will be countered more often than not.
- allow to peak quickly
- deny attackers the possibility to push from an important angle
- provide visual over a large area – can be both long or wide-angle
- are hard to dispatch without risk
- Shoot openings in soft walls in front of Black MirrorsDoing so provides for additional coverage from behind the Mirror
- Open holes in walls next to MirrorSuch setup will help with throwing explosives to kill the enemy or deny a plant.It also helps with accurate shooting while peeking.
- Shoot holes in the wall you are reinforcing and debris on the side of the MirrorPrevents annoying debris from obscuring the view, as well as increases width of angle visible from behind Mirror
DOUBLE MIRROR SETUP
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
Jäger’s ADS is an excellent help for defenders playing behind Black Mirrors as they can prevent being naded or flashed by attackers.
Banshee’s slowing down effect can make it easier for defenders behind Black Mirrors to shoot or C4 impacted attackers.
Black Mirrors can be utilized well by another area-denial focused defender. Yes, we are talking about Smoke. Black Mirrors provide him with visual information about attackers pushing the objective and safety for using gas canisters when needed.
Besides Smoke, any defender with access to C4 can benefit from visual info provided by Black Mirrors.
- Shock drone – TwitchThe most direct counter to Mira’s Black Mirrors. Twitch drones can “zap” ejection. Shock drones cannot jump. Therefore, placing the deployable shield in a single doorway that is the only way leading to the mirror can prevent the Shock drone from opening it.
- X-Kairos – HibanaHibana is the most adept hard breacher at opening Mira’s Black Mirrors thanks to the possibility to use a breaching device at the range. The detonation of even single X-Kairos pellets on Black Mirror will open it completely.
- Thermite and MaverickBoth operators can open Rainbow Six Siege Mira Window, but due to the minimal range of their gadgets are somewhat risky and limited at their countering capabilities.

Mira R6 Siege
The throwable explosive detonated remotely by the user. It can be pre-placed or used similarily to grenades — the best counter to Shield operators and preventing the defuser plant.
A deployable alarm that emits a sound when attackers are within its line of sight and range.
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!
