- "Provides the full damage over a longer distance range, which offers you more options in terms of positioning to take down your opponents."
— In-game description
The Extended Barrel is a weapon attachment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.
Contrary to the in-game description, the damage drop-off for any weapon that has the Extended Barrel attached starts at the exact same distance. This means that the Extended Barrel does not provide full power over a greater distance. Instead, damage drop-off is reduced by 15-20%.
It also doesn't negatively affect the recoil as much as one would be led to believe, the difference being near negligible. Certain weapons, like the P90 and the M12, will benefit from this the most, as the Extended Barrel allows it to have a static damage at all ranges.
- The Extended Barrel was originally called "Heavy Barrel" and is still called Heavy Barrel internally.
