    R6 Community Discusses: Ash

    This weeks discussion will focus on the operator ASH. This series has been added to the R6 forums to facilitate discussions amongst the community involving operator use, gadets and strategy that often get buried or lost in the abundance of others posts that flood the forums.

    The goal of this series is to not only give new players a primer on a specific operator, but also for mid-level or competitive players a chance to share the knowledge that they have accrued in their experiences and maybe let people know something that they did not know before.

    Today's operator is Ash.

    1) In your opinion, what is this operator’s primary or ideal role in the team? Not essential, but can be useful in opening up new travel routes quickly
    2) The operator’s gadget and how it will help the team achieve its goals. Please share any tidbits you may know to help expand discussion. Gadget is almost mediocre at this point in the games evolution.
    3) The operator’s loadout, and how best to optimize it. This includes primaries, secondaries, and secondary gadgets.They are all pretty well rounded, use anything
    4) What maps and game modes does this operator do well on? Ash is pretty consistent on any map
    5) What maps and game modes does this operator struggle on?Ash is pretty consistent on any map
    6) What other operators synergize well with this operator being on their team? She doesn't really contribute anything that is limited to specific operators
    7) What opposing operators check or counter this operator? Anyone with a metal reinforcment
    8) What strategies have you adopted while playing this operator and why? Utilize her small hitbox and ranged effectiveness
    9) What is something that a new player should know when playing this operator, or what is something you know that would help a veteran player take that next step? She is notoriously hard to hit due to small hitbox and high speed
    10) What is your overall opinion of this operator? Where would you rank them among the other operators? She is an essential core operator but becomes less important as you unlock DLC operators

    1) In your opinion, what is this operator’s primary or ideal role in the team?
    she's selfish and you should be selfish to pick her up.she's just an attacker and the BEST rusher in the game.
    2) The operator’s gadget and how it will help the team achieve its goals. Please share any tidbits you may know to help expand discussion.
    it help ash herself more than her teammates.she can destroy barbwire and shield from distance so she can move and get closer to the objective faster.
    3) The operator’s loadout, and how best to optimize it. This includes primaries, secondaries, and secondary gadgets.
    use muzzle break and for R4C , if you're on console use holo and if you're good at controlling the recoil then acog.for G36 acog.
    4) What maps and game modes does this operator do well on?
    any map will suit her but she's a force in Hostage since she's one of the fastest operators in the game she can just grab the hostage and go.
    5) What maps and game modes does this operator struggle on?
    no maps and no modes.she's very versatile
    6) What other operators synergize well with this operator being on their team?
    OPs like IQ or Capitao since both are fast.they can attack from 2 side at the same time.
    AND the best one if twitch.since she can spot and mark the enemy and distract them then one second ash is in the room and bam he's dead.

    7) What opposing operators check or counter this operator?
    first of all kapkan since most of the ash players just rush the room.if they're not careful they'll be caught off guard by kapkan traps.(but most of them are really good players.they'll spot the traps.)
    after that , any operator that has barb wire.it's the only thing that can slow her down.BUT she can easily destroy them with her launcher so you have to counter that with Jager ADS so Jager is the best counter to ash since he's fast , has a great weapon , has barbwire and can counter ash gadget.

    8) What strategies have you adopted while playing this operator and why?
    rushing.checking your route if you want to rush.
    9) What is something that a new player should know when playing this operator, or what is something you know that would help a veteran player take that next step?
    use her speed and small hitbox.
    10) What is your overall opinion of this operator? Where would you rank them among the other operators?
    she's one of those operators that got pick in every single match.you'll see her in a match.maybe she's not in a round , but in a match , no.and in most teams , the player with the best aiming , and headset is ash.because you're rushing and you need to hear where the enemy is and have a great reflex and aim

    1) In your opinion, what is this operator’s primary or ideal role in the team?
    Ash doesn't really have a specific role IMO as the gadget she has is quite easily replaced with any breaching charge and having Thatcher in the team, she's only more useful when enemy team has castle.

    2) The operator’s gadget and how it will help the team achieve its goals. Please share any tidbits you may know to help expand discussion.
    Her gadget helps opening more lines of sights which is quite important however often it is that the objective is quite reinforced and the only usefulness for her gadget is by opening windows or doors, and as these can often be destroyed by melee or grenades or shooting then ultimately her gadget is not used that much. she could also get rid of mounted shields however any grenade can do the same and sometimes grenades are more effective because of bandit battery

    3) The operator’s loadout, and how best to optimize it. This includes primaries, secondaries, and secondary gadgets.
    Both primaries are quite similar, R4-C has more damage than G36 and supposed to be worse in recoil but difference is so minimal even with attachments equipped then it becomes the clear choice of load out. in terms of pistol I always choose M45 as it's much higher damage, and in terms of gadgets I always pick smoke grenade as don't quite see the point of having breaching charges while she has her gadget which can do the same.

    4) What maps and game modes does this operator do well on?
    Bomb, because in some maps it would be the least reinforced due to having two objectives so there is a higher chance of finding walls not reinforced.


    5) What maps and game modes does this operator struggle on?
    Her speed and weapon is what make her good, not the gadget, so I must say she doesn't struggle on any map.

    6) What other operators synergize well with this operator being on their team?
    None, can't think of any.


    7) What opposing operators check or counter this operator?
    Jager because of his speed and weapon DPS, so it almost matches with Ash so he has the best chance of countering her in terms of 1-1 combat, but when it comes to gadget then any reinforced wall or shield with battery

    8) What strategies have you adopted while playing this operator and why?
    faster peeking because she is so fast and hard to hit.

    9) What is something that a new player should know when playing this operator, or what is something you know that would help a veteran player take that next step?
    Not much can be said here, no point in crouching or going slow with Ash, go fast, peek fast, and 8/10 you'll win encounter.

    10) What is your overall opinion of this operator? Where would you rank them among the other operators?
    Very good operator in terms of speed and weapon loadout, the gadget is just an extra bonus so I won't rely on it much to win over a round

    1) In your opinion, what is this operator’s primary or ideal role in the team?
    Her primary role is to open lines of sights or door ways without putting yourself in harms way and at least take 2 ops out before dying.
    2) The operator’s gadget and how it will help the team achieve its goals. Please share any tidbits you may know to help expand discussion.
    The gadget is definitely useful depending on the map.
    3) The operator’s loadout, and how best to optimize it. This includes primaries, secondaries, and secondary gadgets.
    Both primaries are extremely accurate with basically no recoil especially if you put an acog on. Weapon recoil is another post in itself though that requires attention. It isn't the weapons that make her dangerous its her speed.
    4) What maps and game modes does this operator do well on?
    Maps that are similar to house where you can destroy almost anything.
    5) What maps and game modes does this operator struggle on?
    Maps that are similar yacht.
    6) What other operators synergize well with this operator being on their team?
    IMO she can just walk around by herself. She's a solo players wet dream.
    7) What opposing operators check or counter this operator?
    None really she takes hits like a 3 armor and moves like 3 speed. Its about getting a lucky shot on her or facing someone who doesn't know how to play as her.
    8) What strategies have you adopted while playing this operator and why?
    Again no strat need as shes a tank with a rocket pack. Just go in and do whatever you like.
    9) What is something that a new player should know when playing this operator, or what is something you know that would help a veteran player take that next step?
    If you are not aggressive then don't use her. Veteran players know her capabilities.
    10) What is your overall opinion of this operator? Where would you rank them among the other operators?
    I'm not being sarcastic when I say its her job to take down at least two operators. Anyone who uses her gadget only uses it for themselves not the team. Her speed along with the other 3 speeds need to be taken down a notch or they just need to maker her a true 1 armor and she actually gets downed.
    If your a solo player I'd rank her number 1 of all attackers. If your a team player shes top 3.

    1. She doesn't have a role. If you want a player for this, make that player the KILLER.
    2. It can help the team rush in quickly, that is if the wall or hatch being breached, isn't reinforced. She can allow new paths for attackers, only if the wall/hatch is not reinforced. You can even use her as a distraction...
    3. Her loadout is fine. Probably one of the best in the game. However, her 2ndary gadgets are something to look at..
    4. Every map because lots of playstyles are possible with her.
    5. Same as 4
    6. Thatcher, Hibana, IQ, Capitao, Sledge, Blackbeard. All attackers work well with her due to her versatile playstyle.
    7. ROAMERS. This is why, if you guys want her to be more OP, give her claymores and remove her breaching charges. Any intelligent roamer is just her worst nightmare. And also frost and kapkan traps, that being if the player is careless with her.
    8. Not telling that here.
    9. Peek with her a lot but fire quickly and make sure you know where you target is. Use her as you want, so many playstyles can be used as her. I somehow find her a better sniper than Glaz because of her gadget and her R4-C having the semi auto option. Just please... do not carelessly rush with her...
    10. In terms of balance 8/10, I still believe her R4-C is ridiculously good and OP and that it needs a slight nerf. You need good roamers to counter her. Otherwise, you could end up having a hard time dealing with her. Jager is the perfect counter to her. In terms of how the operator is made for the player, 10/10. One of the easiest to use and has probably the best loadout in the game. I still think she is less important than her cousin, Hibana, and even less dangerous. An intelligent Hibana is more dangerous than an intelligent Ash. Just do not give her claymores. When I faced her, most of my kills either came from: FLANKS or BEHIND. I rarely managed to kill her 1 v 1 from the FRONT, it's illadvice to engage an Ash if you are facing her unless you are using a gun with an ACOG. Most of the time, I just look for a flank or just sometimes shoot to scare her then go away and comeback. "Fight fire with fire". Use her own tactic against her. If she rushes, try as much as possible to look for a flank or attack her from behind. If all else fails, let her come to you in the objective because it's always better to let the attackers come to you.

    Sorry for not answering all 10 questions here. Ubi just do a pick rate stay and realize she's basically picked EVERY single time. She works in all situations and it doesn't matter with what operator. Smallest hit box 3 speed which is basically what the game's turned into and arguably the best primary in the game. Oops I forget how she somehow eats bullets better than a 2 armor as well. So basically Ash is stupidly OP. Sorry again, but true

    Hey @EvLCletus,

    Do you think there are adjustments needed for the gadget?

    What would you change to help her synergize with other operators?
