Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege features two red dot sights, each with their own variants.

Red Dot Sight[edit | edit source]

"Replaces iron sights with 1x dot sight."
— In-game description

The Red Dot Sight is an optical attachment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It replaces the default iron sight and provides a better line of sight for players to engage enemies from afar.

The NATO Red Dot comes with a thick, somewhat obstrusive casing, and a simple reticle in the form of a dot. It is worth mentioning that the dot on the NATO variant is somewhat big, and can, to an extent block your line of sight on the object which you're aiming at. The NATO variant also comes with a riser attached on specific weapons, this is done to avoid obstruction of vision when aiming down sight.

The Spetsnaz have access to the Russian Red Dot Sight which is notably smaller than the NATO Red Dot Sight, and features a thin casing but a more complicated reticle.

The Handgun variant was introduced in Operation Blood Orchid, exclusive to the RG-15. It features a thin casing and a small reticle, and is relatively small in size. Later, this sight was also applied to the Bailiff 410 and the P-10C. This sight is pre-attached and cannot be modified.

The M4S variant was introduced in the Operation Shadow Legacy expansion, featuring a less obstructive casing and a smaller reticle compared to the NATO. It has become available for several primary weapons.

Reflex Sight[edit | edit source]

"Replaces iron sights with 1x triangular reticle sight."
— In-game description

The Reflex Sight is an optical attachment featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. A variant of the Red Dot sight, it features a triangular green reticle and replaces the default iron sights to provide a better line of sight for players to engage enemies from afar. As of now, the Reflex Sight is the most widely available sight option in Siege, with the only primary weapon incapable of equipping it being the CSRX-300.

All variants of the Reflex Sight feature relatively unobstrusive and small casings. They allow for the most peripheral vision while in ADS in exchange for a smaller sight picture. When aiming down a Reflex Sight, the gun aims at the upper tip of the green triangle (or arrow) which is where all shots will land. 

As with the Red Dot Sight, Spetsnaz operators have a unique version available to them, which features a very thin circular casing and a different reticle from the NATO. The reticle consists of an up-pointing arrow in the middle, and small horizontal lines on each side of it.

The MRS variant features a thicker casing, a slightly larger reticle, and a bigger sight picture. It was originally introduced in Operation Grim Sky as a Red Dot Sight exclusively for the SPSMG9. Later in Operation Wind Bastion, the AK-74M received the MRS sight, however with a new triangular Reflex reticle instead of the original Red Dot. In Operation Steel Wave, the Red Dot version of the MRS sight was completely removed, and the SPSMG9 switched to using the Reflex reticle identical to that of the AK-74M version.

The Vintage variant was introduced in late Operation Shadow Legacy with the Tachanka Rework, and is only available for the reworked DP-27. It features a thick casing and a reticle similar to that of the NATO and Razor Holographic Sights.
