How to Improve from Copper

Climbing the ladder out of Copper can be tricky for some players. Later in the season, it might be slower to leave this rank due to the number of ranked players overall. Most players in this rank lack experience with Rainbow Six Siege which makes it a more casual rank than higher up ones.

There are many things you can do to move up the ladder out of the Copper ranks. These tips should help you:

  • Explore the maps alone in Terrorist Hunt to get better map awareness and improve your gun skills
  • Watching other players to see how they move and position themselves for both attack and defence is a great learning tool. Twitch and YouTube are your best friends for this.
  • Communicate with your team, improving this skill will make getting better at the game overall much easier. This is also an essential skill for the higher ranks.
