Guide for playing 'Buck' on 'Consulate'.

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.]

Consulate is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the attacking team due to the high amount of exposure each bomb site is vulnerable to from the outside.   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   RIOT BARRICADE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] MEETING(A) - OFFICE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team rappelling on the second floor windows of Office(B), Meeting(A), Conector, and Bathroom. The attackers have a huge advantage on this bomb site due to the amount of control which can be had by just rappelling on the windows, attackers can cut off any and all rotates between Office(A), Meeting(B), Long Desk, and Yellow Stairs without even coming inside the building. Due to the amount of control which can be had from the outside, attackers can dedicate the majority of their personnel and resources safely from the outside while only having a few attackers actually enter the building. Buck will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by establishing control on the first floor inside of Press Room, Lobby, and AntiChamber. This will position the player to use the operator's Skeleton Key to breach the ceiling of the first floor and effectively expose defenders playing inside of Meeting(A), Connector, and Office(B). After attackers have successfully eliminated all defenders inside of Office(B), Buck should be positioned inside of AntiChamber and use the breaches in the ceiling he made earlier to prevent defenders from re-establishing a foothold near the Office(B) bomb site.   POLICE LINE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] PRESS(A) - LOBBY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team attempting to plant the defuser inside of the outside double door leading into Lobby(B) from the south of the bomb site. This is the most common strategy due to the safe and direct route to the bomb site the attacking team is given in addition to the attackers not needing too much map control in order to successfully plant the defuser. That being said, some map control is still required by attackers before planting the defuser. It is very common for defenders to have a presence inside of the second floor Meeting Room as, any defenders with the ability to open the flooring of 2F Meeting Room, can provide any defenders on the second floor a clear line of sight to the default plant spot inside of Lobby(B) without over exposing themselves to the outside. Buck will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by assisting teammates in establishing total control over the second floor. After isolating defenders to the first floor and basement, Buck should then position himself inside of the second floor Meeting Room, Connector, and Office as these rooms will allow Buck to expose defenders on the first floor through the ceiling. Buck should remain on the second floor for the entirety of the round and maintain vertical pressure onto defenders playing inside of Lobby(B) and Press(A) while attacking teammates apply ground level pressure from the Lobby(B) double doorway and Yellow Stairs.   SIDE ENTRANCE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F/BSMNT] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the first floor Visa Entrance on the eastern side of the building and proceeding to gain control of Visa Office. Before gaining control over Visa Office, the attacker must first deduce whether or not the defenders are playing inside of the second floor Administrators Office as this will be the defending teams primary method for defending Tellers(A) due to their ability to open the flooring of Administrator's Office and use the vertical angles against the attackers approach from either Visa Entrance or Spiral Hallway. Buck will be an incredibly important operator for attackers to have on their roster due to the operators soft-breaching capabilities. After isolating defenders to the first floor and Basement, Buck should open the flooring inside of the 2F Vending, Printer, and Admin Office as this will allow attackers to flush out defenders playing anywhere on the first floor inside of Tellers(A), Visa, or Tellers Hallway. Similar to the Lobby-Press bomb sites, Buck should maintain vertical pressure onto defenders for the entirety of the round from the second floor as this will be the only way to effectively maintain control over the Tellers(A) bomb site until attacking teammates can establish a physical presence on the first floor inside of Tellers(A) and Visa.   GAS STATION SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CAFETERIA(A) - GARAGE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall located on the west of the Garage(B) and planting the defuser in front of ‘White Van’. However, before breaching the reinforced wall, the attackers will need to gain control over the first floor Press Room and Lobby as these two rooms are located directly above the basement bombsites. Buck will be a great operator to bring for this exact purpose. Attacking teammates like Buck, IQ, and Sledge should work together to effectively establish control over the first floor Lobby and Press rooms as this will provide Buck with the ability to breach the ceiling above the bomb site- in particular, above the main wall inside of Garage(B) which separates the bomb site from the outside. Buck should breach the flooring inside the Press room directly adjacent to the Piano in order to expose defenders like Kaid or Bandit playing near the White Van. After assisting the attacking teams hard breacher in opening the Garage(B) wall, Buck should the reposition to the bottom level of Spiral Stairs and apply horizontal pressure onto defenders inside of Cafeteria(A) while the bulk of the attacking team applies pressure from Yellow Stairs and the Garage(B) outside breach hole.   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.
