Chul Kyung Hwa doesn’t remember much of his childhood, only that his family was escaping across Asia as refugees? Or were they criminals? He remembers his older brother drowning during a river crossing. He remembers the safe house where they stayed trapped for over a month in near silence. He remembers their train ride when soldiers arrested two fellow defectors. He remembers his sick mother slowing them all down during the jungle crossing. He remembers leaving her behind as his father told him not to cry, not to make a noise and alert the armed patrols.
Throughout it all, everyone impressed upon Chul Kyung that anything he said or any strange behavior would get them caught… it was life or death. So he buried his emotions deep, lest he betray his parents and be responsible for their capture; he became a stone to the outside world.
Gaining asylum in South Korea, it was not the happy life they’d envisioned. The loss of his family proved too much for Chul Kyung’s father, who committed suicide, leaving his son an orphan. Chul Kyung remained a stone, never showing emotion, never betraying his inner thoughts.
Chul Kyung was adopted into the Hwa family, who believed it best if he forget his past, which started by changing his full name to Chul Kyung Hwa. Chul Kyung was actively encouraged to forget his real name and he obliged.
It was another form of camouflage. He grew up in a system of rules and codes of conduct, and they provided him with a reason to be stoic, to follow orders. He could hide behind the rules.
Chul Kyung wanted to give back to South Korea, the country that took him in, and he entered the ROK Navy, proving the exemplary sailor. He earned himself a berth in the ROKN UDT/SEALs, not only passing with distinction, but becoming such an exemplary operator in the course of his service that he was handpicked by the 707th Special Mission Battalion: White Tigers. He was diligent, methodical, and tenacious, albeit quiet. Naturally, his status as the child of defectors was not shared with his fellow soldiers to better give him a fair shot, but when South Korea was given an opportunity to send two operators into Rainbow, Chul Kyung was at the top of the list.
What is the utility?

- firing a gun
- impacting surroundings – example: reinforcing wall or hatches
- using a melee attack

THINKING PROCESS FOR USING ERC-7
hiding your exact location
concealing direction you are heading
checking for nearby active dronesWhen enabling Vigil’s ERC-7, you will get by default 2 points and a notification about them every time you start impacting active surveillance devices controlled by opponents. This can be used to check if any drones are within 12 meters from you.
creating vertical confusion
WHEN TO USE ERC-7
Entry point denial
In case you attempt to deny access to the building, you can turn ERC on a few seconds into the action phase.
More careful attackers are likely to drone entry point before going in.
Bear in mind that interference may give away information about your presence near the entry point.
This information may prompt attackers to be extra cautious, therefore eliminating your element of surprise.
If you have a good spot that you are not expecting to be droned out, then try to conceal your presence fully by not activating ERC-7.
Expecting to be pushed
This applies to during the round situations where you anticipate attackers to push your location.
Signs indicating potential push can be various, such as: destroying barricades, footsteps, grenades (stun or frag) thrown in your direction.
Even if you do not see drones searching for you, it does not mean attackers do not have visual on you – drones may be pre-placed or in a spot you are not checking
As a roamer, you will (and definitely should) constantly be on the move. Staying in one location and holding a certain angle for the majority of the round is more often than not a recipe for being easy prey for attackers.
The element of surprise and unpredictability are two essential aspects of efficient roaming. ERC-7 can help you greatly with that in situations where you want to relocate to a new location as it will deny intel about the direction you move towards.
More often than not, attackers will leave a drone close to the potential flank location for dead teammates to look for incoming flank. Therefore, when attempting a flank, activate your cloak to deny visual information about your approach. Just remember: players spectating drones and cameras can still hear you.
COMMON ERC-7 USAGE MISTAKES
Using cloaking device at the preparation phase start
Not using ERC-7 when leaving objective to roam
Relying on ERC-7 too heavily
- EMP disables temporarily ERC-7, whether it was active at the time of EMP detonation or not. This counter is somewhat situational as using EMP deliberately and solely to disable Vigil’s utility sounds ill-advised.
- specification – 3 speed & 1 armor
- loadout – has access to impact grenades, two automatic weapons and lacks ACOG
- utility – supports constant movement and wasting attackers’ time
- advanced map knowledge
- good game sense
- non-vital utility which is also simple to use mechanically
- Utilizing ERC well requires good game sense and being in constant motion, which is not something new players will be usually proficient in at the beginning
- Effective roaming requires map knowledge and timing flanks properly
Camera deployable on floors and walls to surveil areas. Can see through smoke and survives direct shots to its front panel.
Grenade exploding on impact. Primarily used for opening holes in surfaces.
Loadout choices are an individual aspect, and rarely there is a “go-to” loadout in Rainbow Six 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!
