The Surveillance Camera is a vital piece of equipment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege that is at the disposal of every Defending operative. It is utilized primarily for gathering intel by Defenders, in a fashion similar to that of Attacker's Drones. However, these are fixed in place and can be rotated only in a fixed radius.
Surveillance cameras, otherwise known simply as "Cameras", or "Cams", look like black, hemispherical camera modules often fixated on white stands accompanied by support poles when outside, and fixed to ceilings when inside. One exception, however, seems to be the one in the Visa Office on the map Consulate, where the camera seems to be embedded into the ceiling, despite the stand just being placed too far up the ceiling, making it harder to take out. Most maps have sets of internal as well as external cameras, while Tower and Presidential Plane seem to be the only exceptions, lacking cameras outside. Upon activation, they give a black-and-white footage 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. The number of points awarded follows a similar pattern to that of drones.
