Who is the best operator in Rainbow Six Siege?

Right now, Iana is the best operator in Rainbow Six Siege. She is one of the most-picked operators in attack, especially because of her loadout and her two fragmentation grenades. She is not only fast, but she is strong at taking gunfights. Her grenades make it easy to clean bulletproof defensive gadgets.

Her special gadget is a hologram that she can use to drone the building. She can get precious information, which shall be delivered to the rest of her teammates. She is the perfect entry fragger, while also being able to help at cleaning defensive utility and gathering information. She can do everything!

What makes a good operator in Rainbow Six Siege?

Although every operator brings a different quality to the battlefield, we must be honest with you: some are fantastic, some are useless. It all depends on what the meta asks for. 

Right now, the meta is a bit crazy. However, keeping it simple is the way to go. Getting kills is important, so operators with good weapons are always a good pick. We are talking of Finka, Zofia, Iana, Nomad, or Lion in attack, and Melusi, Jäger, Azami, Smoke, or Bandit on defense.

Bringing good gadgets to the battlefield is also important to differentiate an operator from the rest. On attack, operators with fragmentation grenades are very appreciated. Meanwhile, operators with no throwable gadgets aren't very common. The best example is IQ. Meanwhile, on defense, gadgets such as C4 or bulletproof cameras are very important. 

Finally, each operator's ability is also important. Some operators' abilities aren't very meta, so they are rarely used in the game. For example, operators whose abilities aren't very appealing, such as Clash, or whose abilities are hard to master won't be seen as often.
