Rainbow Six Siege Operator Tier List: Best Attackers and Defenders Ranked

Rainbow Six Siege just keeps growing, but for now, here's the pick of the bunch.

It seems hard to believe that as of 2020, Rainbow Six: Siege offers over 50 Operators. As each year has passed, Ubisoft has added progressively more extravagant kits to the game, with astronauts and a man that can run through walls added in this year alone.

It remains a team game, so every Operator unit has its own strengths and weaknesses, forcing you to shift your pick to keep up with both squad composition and the map objective. With each Operator also packing their own choice of main weaponry, there’s some flexibility.

We’ve put together a tier list for both Attacking and Defending Operators below.

For more information on the finest attackers and defenders, check out our guides for each.
