In this article, we’ll guide you through Shaiiko’s new and updated Rainbow Six Siege settings. So you can try it out yourself and destroy your opponents like Shaiiko does.

Stéphane “Shaiiko” Lebleu is a professional Rainbow Six Siege player for Team BDS. He is considered by many in the Siege community as the “best R6 player in history” or one of the best, and it is all because of his godly skills.

The Frenchman is known for his role as an entry fragger, and his mechanical skills are so good that people thought he was cheating. Even another Rainbow Six legend, Pengu accused Shaiiko of cheating during a Pro League match against Penta. After an investigation, Shaiiko was found guilty of using a macro. MOSS, the anti-cheat system, showed he pressed the sequence ‘4 4 4’ 47 times, with around 120 milliseconds delay between each ‘4’.

On October 11th, 2017, Shaiiko received a two-year ban from ESL events for a crime that he pledged he didn’t commit. Not only Shaiiko but his entire team, beGenius was disqualified from the Pro League. However, Shaiiko did not give up on Rainbow Six Siege that easily. With his mechanical skills, he could have switched titles easily and played another FPS game. But he chose to grind Siege, as he knew he had the potential to become one of the greatest in this game. Also, he wanted to prove to the world that his ban was an unfair one.

After a year and a half, on April 24th, 2019, Shaiiko’s ban was lifted. He later joined Team BDS and the rest is history.

Shaiiko continued to break multiple records after coming back from his ban. He even got a rematch with Pengu during Dreamhack Montreal, where Team BDS managed to beat G2 Esports and later finished the tournament in 3rd place.

The mechanical Siege god, Shaiiko is now considered to be a Siege legend, winning multiple International events and consistently topping the charts with his stats. Several locations on Siege maps have earned the callout “Shaiiko spots” due to the renowned player’s strategic effectiveness and frequent presence in those areas. Engaging in a one-on-one gunfight against him in these spots proves to be a formidable challenge.

Shaiiko’s Updated R6S Settings

To get this good in a game, pro players tweak their settings very carefully according to their playstyles. For example, many players like to change their Aspect Ratio, FOV which is more comfortable to them. And more comfort means you will be deadlier with your aim.

Without any further delay, let’s jump right in and discover all the important settings that Shaiiko uses. It’s essential to go through each setting and identify what resonates with your play style. From there, you have the flexibility to either implement these settings unchanged or make personalized adjustments, ensuring an optimized gaming experience just for you.

Video Settings

The video or display settings are one of the key differences you will notice in Shaiiko’s gameplay. Shaiiko is renowned for his gunplay with the 1x holographic scope and the stretched 4:3 Aspect Ratio with 84 FOV, which provides a wider zoomed view on a 16:9 monitor.

Graphics Settings

As a professional esports player, Shaiiko will aim to get the most FPS by lowering his graphics setting and using 1080p resolution. This allows him to get the most out of his 360Hz monitor. However, do make sure to set the Shadow quality to ‘Medium’ or higher, as that setting can provide valuable intel during a match.
