[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.]     Oregon is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play. Although, this is subject to change as the map has recently undergone a rework by Ubisoft and will be left in ranked to see how viable the map is for high-level competitive play.   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] KIDS(A) - DORMS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Big Tower located on the north side of the building. After establishing control over all of Big Tower, attackers will breach the reinforced wall on the second floor level of Big Tower separating Attic and Big Tower. This will then provide attackers with a clear pathway through the Attic to get into the Kids(A) bomb site and plant the defuser. Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout all three levels of the Big Tower, located on the northernmost portion of the objective building. Due to attackers commonly dedicating such a large amount of manpower to establishing control over Big Tower, it is very likely that the use of Kapkan’s EDD’s can provide defenders with a significant HP advantage at the beginning of the round and, in some cases, even provide the defending team with a man advantage before the first gun fight. EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] KIDS(A) - DORMS(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - DINING(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Small tower located on the western most part of the building. After establishing control over Small Tower, attackers will attempt to breach the reinforced wall inside of 1F Small tower which separates the first floor Small Tower and Kitchen(A) bomb site. Kapkan will want to place EDD’s throughout the second floor Kids and Bunks rooms as well as the Small tower. Not only will this provide the defending team with an HP advantage as attacking members trigger the explosive traps, but this will also provide the defenders with the unseen intel advantage in knowing where and when the attacking team is dedicating the largest amount of players. Keep in mind that Kapkan also has a nitro-cell for utility which can be used against attackers as they breach the ceiling of the Kitchen(A) bomb site. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - DINING(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] MEETING(A) - KITCHEN(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Big Tower located on the northernmost side of the building. After establishing control over the first floor Big Tower (T1), attackers will proceed to breach the reinforced wall separating the first floor level of Big Tower and the Meeting(A) bomb site. Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout the first floor, in and around the Main Lobby. This will provide defenders inside of Meeting(A) with an audible que in the event that attackers attempt to flank the bomb site from the south eastern portion of the first floor, from Main Lobby and Garage. Providing the Meeting(A) anchors with a countermeasure to a rush strat will allow teammates to focus attention on the attackers inside of Big Tower and Attic attempting to plant the defuser inside of Meeting(A). EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] MEETING(A) - KITCHEN(B)

  DEFENDING: [BSMNT] LAUNDRY(A) - SUPPLY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through Barrel/Construction rooms located on the northwestern side of the building inside of the basement. After establishing control over Construction, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Construction and Supply(B). The key to a successful attacking round in the basement is to have a multi-directional assault while also having a really heavy primary assault. Attackers will almost invariably have their primary assault inside of Barrels-Construction. Kapkan can be used similar to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned first floor Meeting-Kitchen bomb site. Place EDD’s in routes which will be commonly used by attackers to flank the bomb site. For example, attackers will focus their primary assault inside of Barrels and Construction so Kapkan should place EDD’s throughout Freezer and around the first floor rooms near the Main Stairs. This will alert defenders inside of Laundry(A) and Long hall to incoming flanks from attackers through the alternative routes to the bomb site. EDD PLACEMENT: [BSMNT] LAUNDRY(A) - SUPPLY(B)
