Overview Siege

"Versatile assault rifle used by GIGN for medium to long range, with automatic and burst fire modes."
— In-game description

The F2 is an assault rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by Twitch.


With its extremely high fire rate of 980RPM and adaquate damage, the F2 simply dominates at close to medium range encounters, but its high vertical recoil makes it somewhat difficult to use at longer ranges. Its low magazine capacity combined with its high rate of fire can also make fighting multiple opponents a challenge.


  • Very high rate of fire
  • High damage output


  • Harsh vertical recoil
  • Low magazine capacity
  • Limited long-range capabilities due to recoil and damage drop-off

Learning Area[]

In the High Value Target Situation, the player plays as a GIGN Recruit equipped with an F2 and a P9 as a sidearm. The F2 is equipped with a Red Dot Sight, a Flash Hider, and a Vertical Grip.



  • The F2's model is that of a lightly customized FAMAS F1. The real F1 has a differently shaped charging handle, stock, carry handle, and grenade launcher sight alignment.
  • The weapon used to incorrectly feeds 30 rounds out of a 25 round magazine. This has been fixed.
    • For some reason, however, the magazine model appears to be slightly shorter than the real-life 25-round magazine.
  • The carry handle ingame is completely flat on top and has an integrated picatinny rail, presumably for ease of modularity. However, this makes the grenade sight alignment functionally useless since the rail is covering the aperture in the carry handle that the grenade launcher sight is raised through.
  • Although there is no picatinny rail on the grip, neither ingame nor in real life, one miraculously appears on the foregrip when a vertical grip is attached.
  • Unlike with other guns, when empty reloading the F2, the user does not throw away the empty magazine. The only other weapon that shares this trait is the 417.
  • At 980RPM, the F2 has the highest rate of fire of all Assault Rifles.
