Guide for playing 'Amaru' on 'Chalet'.

[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.]     Chalet is a triple-level map ( consisting of three floors) found only in Ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the attackers due to the vertical destruction found on all four bomb sites.   Amaru is a two-speed, two-armour attacking operator. Her ability is a “high-tensile grappling gun” which can be used to quickly access entry points on the objective building as well as vault up open hatches. Unfortunately, Amaru is an entirely useless operator - the utility the operator brings is not impactful at all for the whole of the attacking team and is overall considered to be a highly situational operator (situational; meaning that the operator has almost zero versatility and is only useful in select situations which rarely occur.) That being said, I will still be writing a guide for the operator on all ranked maps. However, these guides will be used to offer a more comprehensive overview of how entry fragging should be carried out for new players looking to improve.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Amaru’s loadout should be as follows; - PRIMARY: G8-LMG (Attachments to player preference) - SECONDARY: SMG-11 (Attachments to player preference) - UTILITY: FLASH BANG GRENADES (This can actually be useful for the attacking team as it will allow you to assist teammates in burning Jager’s ADS.)   ATTACKING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - TROPHY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical angles over and under Kitchen(A)-Trophy(B) by gaining control over 2F Master Bedroom, 2F Office, and BSMNT Car Garage. Amaru should be acting as an entry fragger for the attacking team and communicate with support teammates while they drone you through the second floor. As stated previously, control over the second floor will be crucial in order for attackers to successfully gain any kind of control over the two first floor bomb sites. After clearing all defenders from the second floor, it is usually best for Amaru to rotate back outside underneath the west Trophy(B) window. This is because Amaru can easily grapple up to the window while the bulk of the attacking team is executing a site take - sometimes repelling directly into Trophy(B) in tandem with teammates entering the bomb site from different directions can be a viable blitz-strat.   CLIFF-SIDE SPAWN LOCATION

  ATTACKING: [1F] GAMING(A) - BAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering and clearing the building from 2F Master Bedroom on the west side of the building all the way to the east of the building, concluding their roam clear after establishing control inside of the Library. As an entry fragger, Amaru will have similar responsibilities to those mentioned previously. Communicate with support drones while eliminating compromised off-site defenders. In addition to this, keep in mind that it is important for you to communicate to your teammates what you don’t know as this will help supporting teammates know where to take their drones. For example, if you have cleared Office but you aren't sure about the West Main Stairs, communicate that to your teammates instead of expecting them to know that you aren't sure. Never forget that teammates can help you in a variety of ways but, they cannot read your mind.   LAKE-SIDE SPAWN LOCATION

  ATTACKING: [2F] OFFICE(A) - MASTER BEDROOM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will essentially just be the inverse of Gaming-Bar. Entering through the Library and moving from east to west inside of the building is a much safer route to the second floor bomb sites as attackers can be easily shot if caught trying to repel directly onto the Master Bedroom balcony or climb the Front Yard ladder to the second floor. Entry fragging on this bomb site won’t require as much of an aggressive play-style as compared to the previous bomb sites. This is because the entirety of the attacking team usually pushes together through the second floor balcony hallways leading from Library to Office(A). Move slowly and thoroughly throughout the second floor to ensure that you and your team have complete control over the rooms the team gains control over. Flanks are very common on this bomb site; for this reason, it is recommended to bring claymores instead of flashbang grenades as this will provide attackers with an extra layer of flank protection so the team can focus their attention on the Office(B) site control.   CAMPFIRE SPAWN LOCATION

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] WINE(A) - SNOWMOBILE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced exterior wall leading from the buildings southern exterior into Snowmobile(B). Since the basement-level bomb site is fairly formulaic, I would recommend that Amaru acts as an agent of chaos. In addition to this usually being pretty fun, it can also have surprising benefits for the attacking team. Try grappling directly into the 2F Library double window and rush down the Blue Stairs to catch defenders off guard while Bandit is attempting to ‘trick’ the wall - eliminating the defending teams entry denial will prove hugely beneficial for attackers moving the round forward.   FRONT YARD SPAWN LOCATION
