Guide for playing 'Kapkan' on 'Clubhouse'.

[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.]   Clubhouse is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map can favor either attackers or defenders depending upon which team wins the ban phase, as well as which site is being played.   Kapkan is a two speed, two armor, defending trap operator. His ability is the ‘entry denial device’ (commonly referred to as an EDD) which consists of a booby-trap-like explosive device which can be anchored on doorways and windows and then later triggered by unassuming attackers walking through these doorways. Kapkan is similar to Frost in so far as the operator pick will be much more effective if attackers don’t know that defenders brought him/her. This is because, if attackers know there are trap operators like Frost or Kapkan, they will be much more cautious when maneuvering throughout the objective building so as to not trigger the traps. Generally, Kapkan will be most useful for defenders by dealing damage over the course of the round while the attacking team executes a full roam clear of the objective building due to the traps only dealing about 50HP each. However, this will provide Kapkan with the maximum number of doorways to place EDD’s - allowing the player to place them randomly throughout the building instead of all in one central location.   If you are to be in accordance with current meta, Kapkan’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: 9X19-SMG (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: PMM (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: NITRO-CELL (This will be commonly used for plant denial)   DEFENDING: [2F] CASH(A) - CCTV(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the east reinforced wall inside of CCTV(B) (also known as ‘Platform wall’) as this will provide a direct route for attackers to plant the defuser behind ‘Server Rack’ located inside of the CCTV bomb site. Kapkan can be useful on this bomb site by placing EDD’s throughout the first floor in and around Lounge. Consider placing the traps inside of Blue, Stock, and randomly throughout Bar. This will help prevent operators like Buck, Ash, or Zofia from being able to destroy the flooring underneath the main wall while Bandit and Kaid attempt to ‘trick’ the wall. I would not recommend roaming as Kapkan as his nitro-cell will always be much more useful inside of Cash(A) as a way of preventing attackers from planting the defuser. EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] CASH(A) - CCTV(B)

  DEFENDING: [2F] BEDROOM(A) - GYM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall between outside ‘jacuzzi’ and the bedroom/gym hallway (commonly known as Jacuzzi wall). After breaching the Jacuzzi wall, attackers will attempt to plant the defuser inside of Gym(B). Attackers will also commonly dedicate a large amount of time and resources to gain control over 2F Construction. Kapkan can help mitigate this by placing EDD’s throughout the eastern portion of the second floor. Even if the EDD’s don't fully eliminate an attacker, it will still provide defenders with an HP advantage as well as an audible que to know that attackers are attempting to apply pressure from Construction. EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] BEDROOM(A) - GYM(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] BAR(A) - STOCK(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team planting the defuser inside of one of the two doorways located inside of Stock(B). Although the attackers have a very direct route to the bomb site from the outside, successfully planting the defuser inside of Stock(B) can be difficult due the exposure attackers are under from ‘stage’ (located inside of Bar(A). Kapkan will be most useful on this bomb site by placing the majority of his EDD’s inside of and around the western most rooms located on the first floor. Due to defenders typically placing such a large amount of attention to the Stock(B) plant, attackers will commonly try to capitalize on this by flanking defenders through the West and eliminate unsuspecting anchors inside of Stage. EDD’s can be useful to help prevent this as defenders will always hear the explosion of an EDD if attackers accidentally trip the explosive device. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] BAR(A) - STOCK(B)

  DEFENDING: [BSMNT] CHURCH(A) - ARSENAL (B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical control over the bomb sites by opening the hatches located on the ceiling of ‘Moto connector’ and Arsenal(B). To do this, attackers will first need to gain control of the first floor. Kapkan can help provide an HP advantage to the defending team by sporadically placing his EDD’s throughout the second floor. After clearing the first floor of defenders, attackers will dramatically let their guard down which will help in successfully triggering multiple EDD’s. This can be a huge advantage for defenders during the final site push by either dramatically lowering attacker HP or even eliminating attackers (attackers can die from an EDD if they are a low enough HP when they hit the trap or if the player hits two or more). EDD PLACEMENT: [BSMNT] CHURCH(A) - ARSENAL (B)
