There are over 50 operators in Rainbow Six Siege, comprised of elite soldiers from pretty much every corner of the globe. However, not every operator was created equal, and despite some tweaks and changes, some operators are less ‘best of the best’ and more ‘best of the rest’.
We spoke to Rainbow Six Siege game designer Emilien Lemet at the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League finals in Tokoname, Japan, and discussed some of the operators the team at Ubisoft Montreal are keen to change, and why the game’s balance is in a much better place than it was last year.
“We’ll never be happy with where the game is at” Lemet tells us, with a smile. “We’re perfectionists and we’ll always be perfectionists. However, we’re much happier with where we’re at now.” Now, he says, the game is in a place where most operators are about equal, with a few that are slightly underpowered. But who?
