The Closed-Circuited Television, or CCTV, is a special system featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is utilized primarily for gathering intel by Defenders, in a fashion similar to that of Attackers' Drones. However, these are fixed in place and can be rotated only in a fixed radius.

Gameplay Description

Surveillance cameras, look like black, hemispherical camera modules often fixated on white stands accompanied by support poles when outside, and fixed to ceilings when inside. Most maps have these CCTV cameras both inside and outside the map's building, Tower and Presidential Plane being the only exceptions. Exterior cameras are unavailable in Terrorist Hunt hostage mode.

Upon activation, they give a monochrome feed in real-time, with the ability to rotate the footage in a fixed radius. Similar to drones, they have the ability to mark hostiles, giving a red ping denoting location. Like Drones, scanning a hostile gives 10 points.

A camera in use will light up with a bright red light.

Interactions === Thatcher's EMP grenades can easily destroy cameras in the blast radius, like all other electronics. Twitch's shock drone can destroy cameras, provided they are in the taser's range. They can be one-shotted by bullets. Once Dokkaebi hacks them, attackers can switch to camera view from drone view and vice-versa by pressing the prompted button. If defenders shoot cameras, they will lose 10 points, as the cameras are the defender's equivalent to drones, and are considered a team gadget.
