A Rainbow Six Siege sight with the best window, but worst casing
A middle ground sight, with a reticle that offers the least obstruction
Smallest Sight Window, but the best Casing. Our favorite Russian Sight
Middle of the pack sight in all departments
Very big casing, our least favorite Russian Sight,
UNIQUE WEAPON SIGHTS
Operation Shadow Legacy Sights
Similar to the default Holographic sight in terms of the casing.
The worst reticle for us - not easily recognizable center of the sight.
RED DOT (M4S)
Similarly to the original Red dot, M4S provides the best window. However, it has better casing nearby the sight, with the exception of the bottom right corner.
WHEN TO USE
DOWNSIDES OF 1x SIGHTS
Up until the Y5S3 patch, Rainbow Six Siege did not offer variety and choices in terms of magnifying scopes. This has changed in Operation Shadow Legacy, with the total makeover of scopes options and availability.
Now, we have multiple magnification options, sometimes even on the same gun. Long story short, new magnifying scopes are now our favorite scopes – especially the 1.5x scope!
In the past, ACOG was served left and right by Ubisoft. As a result, we’ve had monstrosities on the defense such as Jager, Bandit, Maestro, and Smoke having ACOGs.
Most 1 speed defenders had access to the 2.5x scope, as well.
Now, the magnification higher than 2.0x is rare. Not to mention 3.0x scope, which is available only to DMRs!
Below the list of available scopes as of Y5S3 patch notes:
The most versatile scope. Provides minimal magnification which helps with long-distance engagements. Yet, still provides a sufficient field of view in close-to-mid gunfights.
Our favorite scope!
Another addition of the Y5S3 patch. Great scope for long-distance engagements, but with less versatility in terms of close quarter combat. Looks very weird on many guns, too.
ACOG (2.5x Scope)
The main magnifying scope in Rainbow Six Siege. Not as frequently available as it once was. It obscures severely view outside of the space window, with its massive casing.
High magnification scope with the best casing.
Available only to DMR weapons!
Available only to Spetsnaz attackers (Fuze & Glaz), as well as Finka.
Casing of this version obscures less of a view than the default ACOG, but the reticle takes more of the view.
Unique scope available only to Kali, with her CSRX 300 Bolt Rifle.
Obscures entire view outside of space window, but allows higher than usual zoom - 6x and 12x.
