Rainbow Six Shooting Range explained: How to use Siege’s new training mode


Rainbow Six is getting a Shooting Range to help players get used to weapon recoil and more. How does it work though, and how can you use it effectively? Here’s a rundown on Siege’s new training mode.

For a long time, Rainbow Six players only had Terrorist Hunt to get their aim true in Siege. However, with the introduction of Team Deathmatch and now the Shooting Range, the onboarding experience is getting a lot friendlier.

What can you do in Rainbow Six’s Shooting Range?

Rainbow Six’s Shooting Range is going to be pretty simple on release. What you can do is test out weapon recoil and damage on targets laid down across an adjustable range.

“It’s a great way of testing out the different weapons and loadouts of each operator, find the best loadout for you, and ultimately save the loadout so you can perform at your best,” assistant game director Christopher Budgen said during the Year 7 Season 2 launch.

However, for now, that’s all it really does. There’s no fancy practice tools like Valorant’s The Range ⁠— although those are on their way, according to Ubisoft.

“The Shooting Range is actually built to have more lanes than you’ll find in Season 2, so we have big plans for [it]. We want to optimize the Shooting Range too so over time we might change the ways the different lanes work based on feedback.”

How to best use Rainbow Six’s Shooting Range

With that in mind, the best way to use Rainbow Six’s Shooting Range when it launches with Operation Vector Glare is to shore up your recoil control.

You can adjust targets to be five, 10, 20, and 30 meters away, so you can get used to every gun at every distance. Adjusting attachments as you go to find the perfect balance for you is how players can get the most out of it.

Combining this with a Team Deathmatch run before jumping into Ranked will ensure your settings are perfect and you’re all warmed up to go gain some MMR.

As Ubisoft adds more features to the Shooting Range though, players will find a number of different uses for it, so keep an eye out for any changes so you can improve quickly.
