Leverage her abilities
Ash Rainbox Six is characterized by her speed, so make sure to leverage her ability to reach your objective quickly, breach into the enemy compound and set up ambushes. The true power of this operator lies in the M120 CREM, which fires breaching rounds that are very effective against windows and doors barricades, the kevlar panels of Castle, but also against the unreinforced walls. However, this great grenade launcher has only two rounds, which they can be lost if you hit a non-drillable surface, so use it sparingly!
The perfect set of weapons and gadgets
Even after losing her ACOG Scope of the R4 assault rifle since the Burnt Horizon update, Ash still has great weapons. The G36C has remarkable recoil stability and is suitable for short-range, while the R4-C has an excellent fire rate and is perfect for long-range. As for handguns, you can choose one according to your preferences: the M45 Meusoc or the 5.7 USG.
The gadgets of Ash are amazing, the breaching charge and the stun grenade are very useful and they can come in handy in different situations: you can create a hole with your drilling rounds and throw your flash grenade through it to stun enemies or use your breaching charge when the M120 CREM is empty.
Tricks you can do with Ash
