Ubisoft’s tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has grown massively over the years. The game had reported over 75 million registered players back in July, and more players are still joining every day.
To make lives a litter easier for new players, we’ve prepared a guide on one of the most popular and powerful operators- Twitch.
The GIGN operator of Twitch has been with Team Rainbow since it launched back in 2015. Over the years, Twitch has consistently remained at the top with her strong utility and gunpower. Here’s everything you need to know to get started with this 2-Speed 2-Health Attacker.
Twitch Operator Guide
Best Weapon Loadout
- Primary Weapon: F2 (AR), 417 (Designated Marksman Rifle), SG-CQB (Shotgun)
- Secondary Weapon: P9 (Handgun), LFP586 (Revolver)
- Secondary Gadgets: Smoke Grenade / Claymore
- Unique ability: Shock Drones
Twitch has a wide option for her primary weapon of choice, which includes the F2 (FAMAS) AR, 417 DMR, and the SG-CQB shotgun. Taking the shotgun will massively limit your long-range gunfight abilities, and picking the DMR will put you at a disadvantage at short ranges. This is why we will highly recommend you to pick the F2 over the other options.
The F2 Assault Rifle has one of the highest fire rates in the game, which is key in a one-shot headshot game like Siege. And with the option for 1.5x scope, this gun can shred enemies from close to medium range.
Beginners might have a little trouble with the relatively higher vertical recoil of the F2, so we’ll suggest using the Flash Hider, alongside the vertical grip for better control. Using the 1x sights like the holographic can also help some players.
As her secondary weapon options, Twitch has the P9 pistol and the LFP586 revolver. The F2 AR has a low magazine capacity so you might need to switch to your secondary more often than usual. Here the P9 pistol will be our recommended option for its higher single-fire rate and magazine capacity.
For her secondary gadget, Twitch can pick either Smoke grenades or Claymore. Here the choice is up to you, as on certain rounds, you might decide to bring Smokes, and on others, a claymore might come handier.
Twitch’s unique gadgets are called the “Shock Drones“, and she has two of them in her back pocket. These special drones have the ability to shoot laser beams that can destroy defenders’ special gadgets, default cams, and more. Unlike the normal attacker drones, Twitch’s drones are faster and quieter, so they are more difficult to find and destroy.
With the recent Y6S3 Crystal Guard update, Ubisoft reworked the Shock Drones by giving them the ability to jump. Also in the preparation phase, Twitch is now equipped with a regular drone, increasing her total intel-collecting device to 3. The taser beams have also been replaced with laser, so gadgets such as Maestro Evil Eyes, which used to be disabled with one zap of the drone, now doesn’t affect it at all. Furthermore, the Shock Drone’s projectiles now have an infinite range, and it deals 5 HP damage to operators.
Each Twitch drone starts with a maximum ammo count of 3, and it takes 30 seconds to recharge a slot. The number of recharges are infinite, so you don’t need to worry much about ammo preserving. However, your priority should be to destroy high-value defender gadgets such as Mira windows, Jager ADS, Mute Jammers, Kaid Electroclaws, etc.
Should you pick Twitch?
Twitch has one best gadget to destroy defender utilities and paired with her strong F2 AR, Twitch earns the label as one of the strongest operators in this current meta. So we highly recommend you to pick this operator for your attacking lineup.
(i) Time your drone usage carefully. Send your drones into objectives when the defenders are busy fighting against your teammates.
(ii) Try not to tunnel vision on using the drones only. Twitch has one of the best guns in the attacking lineup, so make sure to help your teammates by taking some gunfights.
(iii) Do not focus too much on zapping enemies, unless a teammate is close enough to take advantage of that distracted defender.
