A guide for playing 'Kali' on 'Bank'Guides
[DISCLAIMER: This guide is intended to be as bare bones as possible in order to give general advice to any new Rainbow Six: Siege players. In addition to this article being opinionated, I would like to also state that zero-sum strats in this game do not exist and the tell of a good Siege player is their decision making and adaptation to the changing battlefield.] Bank is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture gives a slight advantage to the attackers being able to have control over large portions of the map without entering the building. Kali is an attacking two speed operator equipped with a sniper rifle, SMG pistol, and a gadget capable of destroying any defensive utility placed within the radius of her explosive micro charge. Kali will most commonly be used as an alternative to Thatcher as her ability is capable of destroying the defensive teams entry denial utility (Bandits’ batteries, Mutes’ jammers, and Kaids’ electro-claws). The operator is also useful for flank watch and holding long angles as her sniper rifle is incredibly powerful and capable of downing defenders with one bullet. If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Kali’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY - CSRX 300 (Attachments are unavailable on this weapon.) SECONDARY - C75 Auto (No attachments) UTILITY - Claymore ATTACKING: [2F] CEO(A) - EXECUTIVE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the second floor ‘Terrace’ located to the south east of the map. After gaining control over square stairs the attackers will proceed to open the reinforced wall separating CEO(A) from Square as this will provide attackers with a direct route to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Kali will be needed to act as a Thatcher alternative on this bomb site in order to support the attacking teams hard breacher attempting to destroy the reinforced wall between CEO(A) and 2F Square Stairs. Kali can also be a useful operator if played on the roof of the Parking Garage directly next door to the main objective building. JEWELRY SPAWN LOCATION
ATTACKING: [1F] OPEN(A) - STAFF(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over the second floor as the entire ceiling of Open(A)-Staff(B) is able to be destroyed in order to gain dynamic angles into the bomb site. After attackers have gained control over the second floor and opened up vertical angles down onto the bomb site, Kali in addition to any other support operators on the attacking team, should maintain vertical pressure on the defenders using the hatches while the attacking teams entry fraggers establish a secondary horizontal route of attack . Kali may also be needed to use her gadget to eliminate any Electro-Claws deployed by the defending teams’ Kaid. BACK ALLY SPAWN LOCATION
ATTACKING: [1F] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the second floor CEO Office as this will enable attackers to destroy the ceiling of the Tellers-Archives bomb site. Attackers will also focus on control of Kitchen and Open Area as this will enable attacking hard breachers like Hibanna and Thermite to breach the reinforced wall between Admin Office and Archives(B). Kali can be used as a Thatcher alternative on this bomb site by assisting the attacking teams hard breacher in destroying the reinforced wall between Admin office and Archives(B). Kali can also be a very powerful operator on this bomb site by playing on the roof of the Parking Garage adjacent to Bank as anybody playing here is positioned perfectly to eliminate defenders rotating between the first and second floors.

ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CCTV(A) - LOCKERS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the first floor Open Area and Kitchen as the hatches located on the floors are crucial in cutting off defenders rotating throughout the basement and two bomb sites. Kali will be useful on this bomb site by assisting Thermite or Hibanna in breaching the reinforced hatches located inside of Admin and Open Area. If attackers choose to bring Kali on this bomb site, the player should be dedicating themselves to flank watch as the basement bomb site is very CQC; leaving Kali vulnerable to defending operators playing close angles like that of a Smoke or Mute on the top of Blue Stairs.
