One of the key elements of an effective Rainbow Six Siege game is communication. Sharing information with your teammates can make the difference between rinsing and rinsing. And if, however, all players in a team shared the same brain? This is the question that YouTuber, basically, Homeless decided to answer with five computers, five seat accounts and a switch.
The configuration is quite simple: he has configured five PCs, each running his own copy of Rainbow Six Siege. He then connected his mouse and keyboard to a switch to be able to exchange the account he controlled by simply pressing a button.
But it ended up being a bit of a logistical nightmare. Five gaming PCs, six monitors, an audio mixer, and recording equipment are too heavy to operate on a standard outlet and eventually trip the breaker. In addition, if a character does not move within three minutes, Siege will drop him from the match. For the most part, Homeless needed to find workarounds, but he ended up playing and putting himself at ease.
The first step, once inside, was to develop a viable strategy. The defense was tough and at the beginning he was going through the entire preparation phase just to position three operators. But things got easier once the attack started. Watch the video below:
Since he could only control one character at a time, he discovered that the most effective way to tackle the attack was to treat each operator individually as a recovery. Using his first operator, he would have simply rushed onto the map and been killed, but in the process he could reveal crucial information about the enemy team that he could use in later attempts.

Even though it took a long time to find his rhythm, he finally began to win casual sleeves in casual and climb to the rank. Not surprisingly, it was much more difficult. But with a lot of practice, he finally managed to reach the ninth round.
Is it a useful thing to have worked so hard to do? Should we take back what we know about Siege? No, but it's really impressive. Instead of coordinating with a team, Basically Homeless was able to rely on good weapons management and an unexpected approach to make this strange experience work.
