S-Tier

S-Tier maps in our Rainbow Six Siege Map tier list of Y9S1 feature maps are now in their most balanced state. These maps offer many pathways to rotate to a bombsite. Moreover, instead of implementing the same old strategies, players can take different approaches to clinch a victory. Ranging from a long hallway to different narrow alleys, the maps have a variety of locations that are conducive to competitive gameplay.

Here are the maps listed under the S-Tier of the Rainbow Six Siege Map tier list:

  • Oregon
  • Clubhouse

A-Tier

The maps residing in the A-Tier of our Rainbow Six Siege tier list of Y9S1 offer a lot of routes for both attackers and defenders. However, all of these maps have undergone reworks at least once, and the community has praised and welcomed those changes.

Most of these maps have a huge presence in the competitive pool of R6. Their map dynamics offer defenders a chance to roam around the map and hold multiple entry points in between, making it defender-friendly.

These are the maps that belong to the A-Tier of the Rainbow Six Siege map tier list of Y9S1:

  • Kafe Dostoyevsky
  • Chalet
  • Border
  • Theme Park

B-Tier

The B-Tier maps on this list are not the best but have a better pick rate than C-Tier maps. They offer a better visual experience for players, but they haven’t seen any significant changes for a long time. Hence, players don’t have much room to take a unique approach while attacking or defending a bomb site.

Moreover, professionals tend to avoid these maps in the pro league due to the generic approach to strategy. These maps need massive reworks before they can move up the tier list.

Hence, let’s take a look at the maps residing in the B-Tier of the Rainbow Six Siege map tier list of Y9S1:

  • Bank
  • Villa
  • Nighthaven Labs
  • Skyscraper
  • Coastline

C-Tier

While some maps residing in the C-Tier have been newly introduced, others have undergone a rework. These have the worst pick rates among all maps in the Rainbow Six Siege competitive pool. Despite the maps having undergone massive reworks, players tend to avoid them in both rank lobbies and in the professional scene.

The community doesn’t welcome these maps since some of them (like Lair and Emerald Plains) have been newly introduced, and players need to study them more to get a better overview of site executions. The maps are not newcomer-friendly either.

The maps in the C-Tier of the Rainbow Six Siege map tier list of Y9S1 are as follows:

  • Kanal
  • Consulate
  • Outback
  • Lair
  • Emerald Plains
