Guide for playing 'Kapkan' on 'Coastline'.

[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.   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] HOOKAH(A) - BILLIARDS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers entering the building through the first floor Sunrise Bar and applying pressure onto Hookah(A) from the outside second floor Hookah Balcony and Hookah(A) window. Kapkan should place Edd’s throughout the first floor. Focus EDD placement in and around ‘Jungle Hall’ (also known as Cool Vibe Hallway) as this will be the optimal region of the map to catch attacking operators off guard while still ensuring the attackers will position themselves nearby. Kapkan should also play underneath the bomb site on the first floor, inside of Blue Bar or Sunrise Bar as the player can be useful for the rest of the defending team by using nitro-cell underneath attackers attempting to plant the diffuser inside of Billiards(B) or Hookah(A). EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] HOOKAH(A) - BILLIARDS(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. Kapkan should place EDD’ssporadically throughout the second floor in and around Hookah, Billiards, and Luggage. This is because attackers will commonly enter the building through Aqua and Hookah. Having EDD’s set throughout the western portion of the second floor can act as an audible counter measure to a rush strat as well as help provide insight to the defending team as to where attackers are and how they plan to attack the bomb site. EDD PLACEMENT: [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 also 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’. Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout the western portion of the second floor, similar to the places in which the operator was used on the previous bomb site. Due to attackers commonly prioritizing control over the second floor, Kapkan can also be an effective anchor on the bomb site as he can utilize his nitro-cell on the ceiling of the bomb site - eliminating attackers inside of Hookah and Billiards attempting to expose defensive positions through the ceiling of the bomb site. EDD PLACEMENT: [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). Kapkan should PLace EDD’s throughout the easstern portion of the second floor, inside of Master Bedroom, Vip, and Theater. This will help first floor anchors inside of Kitchen(A) and Service(B) identify the locations of attackers on the second floor and provide them with the momentary advantage of being able to use their nitro-cell much more precisely than if they were just using the audible foot steps to determine the locations of attackers above them. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - SERVICE ENTRANCE(B)
