Deployable Shield - How to use

Using Rainbow Six Siege's Deployable Shield may look easy, but it's not. While you can place Deployable Shields whenever you want, you must use them wisely.

Deployable Shields and utility

Deployable Shields are useful when they are combined with gadgets that can burn or intercept the enemies' utility, as the attackers will try to destroy it with fragmentation grenades or projectiles like Ash's or Zofia's.

For instance, a Deployable Shield combined with Jäger or Wamai's devices will likely last longer than a Deployable Shield alone.

Deployable Shields and traps

Another synergy that involves Deployable Shields is traps. It's very common to see Deployable Shields combined with Frost's Welcome Mats, which not only forces the attacker to vault but also forces the attacker to look down.
