[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.   Sledge is a two speed, two armour attacking operator. The operator’s ability is his ‘Tactical SledgeHammer’ which is capable of destroying surfaces (such as, soft flooring, soft walls, and even Castle Barricades) that commonly prevent attacking teams from moving the round forward. Sledge is a very versatile operator and, for this reason, the operator will commonly be used for strategic purposes as well as for entry fragging. Sledge can be useful on almost any bomb site on any map due to the operator having frag grenades in his loadout. Since Buck’s nerf, which replaced his frag grenades with a claymore, Sledge has become even more valuable due to the scarcity of viable frag op’s to choose from.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Sledge’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: L85-AR (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: SMG-11 (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: FRAG GRENADES   ALL SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [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. Although Sledge won’t be using his soft-breaching abilities frequently on this bomb site, the operator can still provide value to the attacking team. Use the operators frag grenades to safely eliminate defending operators inside of Big Tower as this will commonly be the primary route of attack for your team. After securing Big Tower, Sledge should then shift his positioning to the bottom of White Stairs as this will help the team by applying pressure onto defender positions from opposite directions; Attic and White Stairs.   JUNKYARD SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [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. Sledge will bring valuable utility for the attacking team with the operators sledge hammer. Breach the second floor inside of Master Bedroom by using the Master Bedroom Balcony. This will be the optimal way to breach the second floor due to there being a doorway to enter the building from. This will provide you with an advantage in the way of mobility and not having to vault anything as you otherwise would if entering through the Bunk Double window. After isolating all defending roamers to the first floor, Sledge should then begin breaching the flooring inside of Kids and Dorms as this will expose defenders playing inside of Kitchen(A) and Dining(B); providing attackers with the ability to apply both vertical pressure from the second floor and, horizontal pressure from Small Tower.   PARKING SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [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. Sledge should be used similar to the way in which the operator was used on the previous two bomb sites. Act as an entry fragger for the attacking team while control over Big Tower is being established. After eliminating all of the defensive presence inside of Big Tower, Sledge should breach into 2F Attic as you will likely need to breach the Hatch and Flooring in order to eliminate any entry denial utility placed on the wall separating Big Tower and Meeting(A) - this will allow your team's hard breacher to open the site wall. Sledge can then re-position to the first floor Main Lobby and apply pressure onto the Meeting(A) bomb site from Split. This will force defenders inside of Meeting(A) to split their attention over two opposite attacking fronts: Split and Big Tower.   CONSTRUCTION SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [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. Sledge will likely be needed to assist teammates inside of Construction as it is common for defenders, like Wamai, to play inside of Construction under the cover of a deployable shield and Wamai Disc’s. Sledge should communicate with teammates who have flashbang grenades so that attackers can eliminate all of Wamai’s utility. This will then provide you with the opportunity to use frag grenades on any defender inside of Construction behind a deployable shield. After control over Construction has been gained, attackers can then breach the two reinforced walls separating Construction and Supply(B) using Thermite, Hibanna, or Ace and plant the defuser under the cover of smoke grenades.     Thank you for reading and I hope this was helpful for you guys.   If you are interested in more content or want to ask me questions, you can always find me on Twitch or connect with me via discord - I always enjoy discussing Siege with fellow enthusiasts; regardless of skill level.
