Guide for playing 'Buck' on 'Oregon'.

Guides

[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.]   I would also like to give a small shout-out to mohdx19 for the 600 token donation. Thank you for the generosity.

  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.   Buck is a two armor, two speed attacking operator. His ability is known as the ‘Skeleton Key’ which is a mini shotgun attachment placed on the bottom of the operator's primary weapon. Buck is a soft-breacher and is used to destroy obstacles like un-reinforced walls and flooring as a method of providing the attacking team with dynamic angles that can be used to eliminate defenders as well as defending utility. The operator is similar to Sledge as a soft-breacher although Buck is unique in that the operator has the ability to destroy the ceilings from the ground floor. This is an incredibly valuable advantage as it provides attackers with the ability to destroy the flooring underneath defenders on certain second floor bomb sites.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Buck’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: C-8 ASSAULT RIFLE (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: MK1 9MM (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: FLASHBANG GRENADES   ALL OREGON 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. Due to the flooring of the second floor bomb sites being primarily soft, Buck will be a great operator for the attackers to have on their roster. Buck will typically be most valuable to the attacking team due to his ability to eliminate the defending team's entry denial utility placed on reinforced walls. Depending on the route of attack your team decides to pursue, Buck will need to either establish control inside of the first floor Meeting room or the first floor Classroom. If the attacking teams Hard breacher want to open the reinforced wall separating Master Bedroom and Dorms(B), Buck will need to establish control inside of the Main Lobby and Classroom located on the first floor. Buck will then want to destroy the ceiling of Classroom as this will expose the entry denial utility preventing Thermite from breaching the wall. If the attacking team's Hard Breacher wants to breach the Attic wall, Buck will need to establish control inside of the Meeting room, located on the first floor, and then use his Skeleton Key to destroy the ceiling of Meeting. This will then expose any entry denial utility placed on the second floor inside of Attic. It is common for Buck to Communicate with teammates on the second floor and ask them to ping the wall so that you have a precise location to use your Skeleton Key - this will save utility as you will not have to use ammunition to guess where the entry-denial utility is placed. POSITIONING: [2F] KIDS(A) - DORMS(B)

  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. Buck will be used to breach the flooring of the second floor and expose defender positions inside of Kitchen(A) and Dining(B). Communicate with teammates to establish full control of the second floor and isolate all defenders to the first floor. Typically, it is a good idea for the attacking teams entry fragger to breach the second floor through the Master Bedroom balcony while an additional attacker, like Buck, is positioned on the Bunks Double Window. This will allow attackers to catch defending roamers on the second floor attempting to rotate back down the White Stairs and return to the bomb site. After establishing full control over the second floor, Buck should use the Skeleton Key to breach the flooring inside of Kids as this will apply heavy vertical pressure onto defenders playing inside of Dining(B) as well as provide Buck with the ability to eliminate any entry denial utility placed on the wall separating Dining(B) and Small Tower. POSITIONING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - DINING(B)

  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. Buck will play a very similar role as that which was done on the previously mentioned Dining-Kitchen Bomb site, The only difference here being that Buck will want to Breach the flooring inside of Dorms so that the Kitchen(B) bomb site is entirely exposed. This will force defenders to either rotate off the bomb site and reposition into Dining/Lockers, or reposition into Meeting(A). In the event that defenders reposition into Meeting(A), Attackers will have the option to either continue their primary Assault inside of Big Tower or, change their direction of attack entirely into Kitchen(B). I believe changing the direction of attack to be the tactically superior decision as attackers would be taking the route of least resistance by applying pressure on the bomb site with the least amount of defensive presence. POSITIONING: [1F] MEETING(A) - KITCHEN(B)

  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. Although there are not a large amount of soft-breaching opportunities given to attackers on this bomb site, Buck can still provide value to the attacking team by being the attacking teams active entry fragger as well as utilizing the operator’s flashbang grenades to eliminate Jager ADS’s placed inside of Barrels. After eliminating the defending teams anti-projectile utility (Wamai Disc or Jager ADS) Buck will then take the lead into the BSMNT Construction and establish a beachhead for attackers to breach the wall separating Construction and Supply(B). After the wall has been opened, Buck should reposition to either the bottom of Main Stairs or Freezer. This will split the defending teams man power over two fronts as well as allow Buck to open up new opportunities for the attacking team by eliminating the defending teams ability to utilize ‘long hall’ as a highway between the bomb sites. This will effectively cut the two bomb sites down the middle and isolate the defending team between two rooms. POSITIONING: [BSMNT] LAUNDRY(A) - SUPPLY(B)
