Barricades are a piece of equipment used by Defenders in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The Defenders have an unlimited number of barricades able to be placed on windows or doors to prevent the Attackers from having a line of sight. Barricades can be easily identified as they are wooden boards with a large yellow X in the center.
They can easily be breached with explosives such as Breach Charges, Nitro Cells, and Frag Grenades or three melee hits. Players may also vault or rappel through them if a large enough hole is created, destroying it in the process.
Shotguns can create large holes within barricades, destroying them entirely in only a few hits. Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, and Sidearms only create small holes, requiring a larger number of hits to destroy.
Since they break the Attacker's line of sight, it is recommended to place them all around the objective if possible, which will also slow them down and reveal their location upon hearing a barricade being destroyed. It is also viable to place them around popular breach points that will ultimately allow the Attackers easier access to the objective if not done otherwise. Doing this away from the objective may also confuse Attackers operating Drones during the preparation phase as to the objectives true location if it is not already known. It is advised to not place barricades between Operators or objectives in adjacent rooms as it will slow Defender movement in the area and make it harder to provide support to teammates.
Castle features the unique ability to place three reinforced barricades which are extremely bullet resistant and takes 12 melee hits to destroy.
- When deploying a barricade, the Operator is immune to melee damage from the front. The same goes for Castle and his Armored Panels.
