I am Harry Shepherd and I find Multiplayer shooters tough. I am notably lacking a particular set of skills; skills I have neglected to acquire over a long time playing videogames. I am forever hindered by sluggish aim, dead-cat-like reactions, and a predisposition to panic in stressful situations.
Obviously, in light of this, I decided it would be a good idea to try my quivering hand at Rainbow Six Siege - a tense, high-stakes shooter where breaking your cover even a fraction can lead to your sudden demise. Even better, I am over two years behind in joining this particular gaming party. Being fashionably late has long passed me by (and - I’ve checked this with my editor - being ‘fashionably bad’ isn’t a thing).

After gingerly emerging from the wreckage that was my first few hours with Siege - with a single, solitary kill in multiplayer - it is clear that I need help.
