    • @Pandy_ 307 sorry but 1. How is that cheating? 2. Part of the next update already came out and one of those was the way task bar updates itself it can now update as usual or only on meetings and sometimes at this point it's kinda odd to only now say this considering the partial update

    • When an imposter fakes a task you shouldn’t even be there it’s called task baring which is kind of cheating and doesn’t make the game fun for the imposter who task bar people

  • ik this video is allmost 2 months ago but u just wanna clarify somthing. Watching the task bar when someone is doing a task is a good tactic (as you can see on the videos on my channel) but if you dont know what task are 2 step this tactic is useless in some ways. task like the admin swipe, start reactor and visual task are all 1 step task meaning the task bar will definitely go up. That is why I watch everyone do swipe at the beginning. the next kind of task I want to talk about is visual task. These are all 1 step task but they also gain ur crewmates trust. For example, if your doing medbay scan it's good to bring a crewmate with you to watch because if visual task arent off there will be a green scan animation around you. There are many more visual task but this comment will be too long if I explain all of them including the other important task. THE 3RD ONE IS WHAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR..... 2 step task (or long task). 2 step task is all in the name. 2 steps. These might include.. download, trash, wires,fuel engines and divert power. If your watching someone do these task. The first step will not increase the task bar and you will half to wait for the person to do the 2nd step. Wires are 3 step and fuel is 4 step but I'm just including them in this category. The final type of task is the common task. Common task are a bit different then the normal task. If you have common task to the max that means 2 (or maybe 3 I'm not completely sure tell me below) of the task everyone will have. Before we get into the examples I wanna say the common task. These include... admin swipe, wires and i think that's it unless divert power or download is one. Common task can be a EASY WAY to catch imposters because if you check your task list and there is no card swipe or wires (or just check if common task are dissabled) then you can bait. Baiting with common task actully is ironically "pretty common" because so many players can get manipulated by this trick. let's just say you joined a game and there was 1 common task enabled. The game starts and the chosed common task is wires. There is no card swipe and for some reason yellow goes up to the swipe and stands there. Go call a meet imedently and just tell everyone "yellow faked swipe because wires is our common task this round... not swipe" sometimes people will just skip because not alot of evidence but most of the time they will listen and LET ME TELL YOU getting the imp out first round is a great feeling. Sorry for waiting your time bye everyone!

  • 6:13 ignore that tip because they didn't explain it properly, many tasks do not move to bar including ones they even showed in the clip, if you are making a tip video check the info yourself before turning your viewers into noobs because they listened to you say inaccurate tips. And then later you keep talking about your elite strategy and knowledge when you can't even understand simple task bars. Edit: you just got yourself a dislike for spreading misinformation and saying the info was real

  • Can I just say something here, if the task meter goes up as soon as the guy walks away from the task, he faked it, if the task meter goes up around a second before they walked away, they didn't, this is because it needs time to say "task completed" ... Little bit of helpful advice there.

I have a friend who is REALLY good at Rainbow Six Seige, problem being that I am very very BAD at R6 so when my friend plays with me he ends up overestimating the enemy team and when they do something stupid they usually end up taking him out since they did something HE would never expect because he spends so much time playing against people in the higher ranks.

Also Dream pulled a strategy no one saw coming except maybe a few individuals. What Dream did was make Sapnap and GeorgeNotfound believe that Dream was defenseless and his only strategy was to push Sapnap and GeorgeNotfound into their deaths and they let their guard down that the shears has impressive leaf cutting speeds and Dream destroyed the ground below of Sapnap and GeorgeNotfound and fell to their deaths.

  • 6:22 all of the tasks that you showed the imposters faking doesn't immediately increase the task bar you have to do the last part of the task and only then will the task bar go up. 7:04 wires doesn't have the task bar go up you need to do the last wires and that specific one can never be the one that completely finishes the task.
