Guide for playing 'Doc' on 'Coastline'.

Rainbow Six: Guides - Guide for playing 'Doc' on 'Coastline'. image 1

[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.]   Coastline is a double-level map (consisting of two floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map gives a large advantage to the attacking team due to the ease of access attackers have to map control from the outside of the building.   Doc is a one speed, three armour defending operator. Doc’s ability is the ‘Stim Pistol’; a projectile gadget which shoots medical stims, capable of healing teammates with low HP as well as reviving teammates who are in a DBNO state. Doc is most commonly used for the operators MP5 which can be customized to have an ACOG equipped as an optic. Due to the MP5’s low recoil, the ACOG can be highly useful if used to hold long angles on the bomb site. This makes Doc ideal as an anchor.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Doc’s loadout should be as follows; -PRIMARY - MP5 (WITH ACOG) -SECONDARY - LFP586 (Revolver) -UTILITY - Can vary based upon the needs of the team. (Personally, I always bring Barbed wire.)     DEFENDING: [2F] BILLIARDS(A) - HOOKAH(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team rappelling on the double window of Billiards(A) and the single window of Hookah(B) while vertical soft destructors like Buck and Zofia gain control of the first floor Sunrise bar and proceed to destroy the ceiling of Sunrise - the flooring of Hookah(B). Doc can be useful on this bomb site inside of Billiards(B). From this position you will have access to a variety of long-angles which can be incredibly effective at preventing attackers from establishing control over the two bomb sites from the second floor windows. The Billiards(B) double window will likely be the most heavily contested window by attackers as there are a variety of angles which can be held on the BIlliards(B) bomb site from ‘Ruins*’ (*the collection of stone formations located directly adjacent to the main building.) POSITIONING: [2F] BILLIARDS(A) - HOOKAH(B)

  DEFENDING: [2F] THEATER(A) - PENTHOUSE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over the second floor VIP room from the second floor balcony located on the north side of the building. After gaining control over VIP and Hall of Fame, attackers will breach the reinforced wall between VIP and Penthouse(B) as this will provide attackers with a safe and clear pathway to the default plant spot in the corner of Penthouse(B) by the master bed. Doc is commonly played on site inside of Theater(A) as there are multiple long-angles which can be held that can prevent attackers from entering VIP as well as Hall Of Fame. As an anchor on this bomb site you will also be responsible for communicating with teammates what attackers are doing as they approach the bomb site - if you notice that attackers have breached the VIP wall and are planting the defuser, communicate the plant location to a teammate with a nitro-cell as this will be the most effective way to prevent attackers from planting the defuser inside of Penthouse(B). POSITIONING: [2F] THEATER(A) - PENTHOUSE(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] BLUE(A) - SUNRISE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering through the Pool Entrance located on the north western corner of the building. Attackers will typically gain control of second floor Hookah as this will enable attacking soft destructors (Buck, Zofia, Ash, or Sledge) to destroy the ceiling of Sunrise and eliminate any defending anchors playing behind ‘couches’ or ‘bar’. Doc will be most useful when played inside of Blue(A). Attackers will commonly try to flank defenders inside of Sunrise(A) by gaining control over Cool Vibe Stairs and Kitchen, Doc can help prevent this by playing near the ‘jungle’ exit (located underneath the default camera outside of Blue(A)). Use caution when playing in this position as attackers can also flank through the ‘long hall’ or through the ‘court-yard’. POSITIONING: [1F] BLUE(A) - SUNRISE(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - SERVICE ENTRANCE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team planting the defuser inside of the doorway of service entrance leading to the outside exit - located on the eastern side of the building. Attackers will also commonly attempt control of the second floor VIP, Theater, and Penthouse rooms as this will allow attackers to destroy the ceiling of Kitchen(A) and Service(B). Doc should be positioned inside of Service Entrance(B), behind the B bomb. From this position, the operator's long-range capabilities will be highly valuable in preventing attackers from entering the bomb site through the Service Entrance(B) single doorway. The largest weak point of this position will be from above; if attackers gain control over the 2F VIP and Master Bedroom, the ceiling of your position will commonly be destroyed - forcing you to relocate to a more passive location like ‘beer corner’ or ‘bathroom’. POSITIONING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - SERVICE ENTRANCE(B)
