Guide for playing 'Kapkan' on 'Bank'.

[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.   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] 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. Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout the first floor, primarily in around the bottom of the Square stairs and Archives. This is because attackers will commonly send an operator like IQ or Buck to go below the second floor bomb site and destroy the entry denial gadget’s like Mute Jammers and Bandit Batteries. Kapkan can also be used as a roamer on the first floor to help prevent attackers from destroying the breach denial as well as use his Nitro-Cell on the flooring of the bomb site to prevent the attackers from planting the defuser. EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] CEO(A) - EXECUTIVE(B)

  DEFENDING: [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 1F Open(A)-Staff(B) is able to be destroyed in order to gain dynamic angles into the bomb site. Kapkan should place EDd’s throughout the second floor, inside of and around Stock Trading. This will help defenders by placing an HP disadvantage on attackers who detonate Kapkan’s explosive devices. Kapkan should also use nitro-cell to eliminate attackers as they destroy the ceiling of the bomb site. EDD’s can be helpful in pinpointing the locations of attackers on the second floor. In turn, this will help make you and your teammates more accurate in utilizing nitro-cells. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] OPEN(A) - STAFF(B)

  DEFENDING: [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). Kapkan should place EDD’s in and around the CEO office on the second floor. This will serve the same purpose as on the previous Open-Staff bomb sites in that it can eliminate attackers as well as help determine the locations of attackers after they have triggered the explosive device. Kapkan should play inside of Teller(A) or Archives(B) as his nitro-cell will be most useful by using it to eliminate attackers attempting to destroy the ceiling of the bomb site. I would also recommend placing a few EDD’s around the first floor portion of Square as this can help identify attackers who are trying to secretly flank Archives(B) from Kitchen or Blue Stairs. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B)

  DEFENDING: [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. Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout the entirety of the first floor. This is because it is common for attackers to clear all of both the first and second floor before moving forward with site control. Kapkan can help give an HP advantage and in some cases even eliminate attackers by placing EDD’s in random locations like inside of the first floor elevator or inside of Archives. Having an HP advantage in the last 45 seconds of the round can actually help significantly in maintaining consistent control over the bomb site, especially in the case of an attacker attempting to plant the defuser under Smoke’s Toxic Canister. EDD PLACEMENT: [BSMNT] CCTV(A) - LOCKERS(B)
