Guide for playing 'Ash' 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.]

  Oregon is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play. Although, this is subject to change. 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. Ash is a one armor, three speed attacking operator. Her gadget is the Breaching round: a hand-held grenade launcher which shoots an explosive breaching round that is capable of destroying soft surfaces like walls, flooring, barricades, and deployable shields. Ash is also a very valuable operator for eliminating a large amount of defending utility placed inside of bottlenecks like doorways and windows. Although Ash brings valuable utility for the attacking team, the operator is classified as an entry fragger. This means that it is Ash's job to eliminate defending players positioned inside of strategic locations needed by attackers in order to move the round forward. If you are confident in your ability to win gunfights, Ash will be one of the best operators to choose from in order to support an aggressive play style. If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Ash’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: R4-C Assault Rifle (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: M45 MEUSOC (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: FLASHBANG GRENADES   ATTACKER 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. Ash will be used as a vertical soft-destructor on this bomb site. The players should breach the building through either one of the first floor Big Tower doorways. After Ash has assisted teammates in clearing the Big Tower of any defender presence, the player should then reposition to the first floor portion of Big Tower. From T1, Ash can shoot out the top portion of the soft wall separating Meeting and Big Tower. This will then provide the player with the ability to use a breaching round through the hole and on the soft portion of the Meeting Room ceiling. Doing this will destroy any entry-denial utility placed on the reinforced wall separating Attic and Big Tower. This will allow the attacking teams hard breacher to open the wall so attackers can establish control inside of Attic.   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. Ash should be used on this bomb site to apply pressure onto defenders inside of Dining. The player should breach the building through either Big Tower or Garage and then establish control inside of Meeting. Maintaining Meeting Control will prevent defenders from being able to use the south eastern portion of the map as a ‘back entrance’ into the bomb site. In addition to Meeting being strategically valuable for attackers, the Kitchen hallway (located adjacent to Meeting Room) is also a commonly overlooked route of attack - especially for a solo-entry. Ash can typically apply an incredible amount of pressure onto the Kitchen(A) bomb site through the Kitchen Hallway while the rest of the attacking team is carrying out the main assault inside of Small Tower. This will force defenders to divide their attention and resources between two opposing routes of attack: Small Tower into Dining(B) and Kitchen Hallway into Kitchen(A).   CONSTRUCTION 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. Ash can provide value to the attacking team by applying opposing pressure onto the Meeting(A) bomb site from the Main Lobby and Split. The player should breach the building through either Garage or Classroom and communicate with supporting teammates while they drone to clear defenders from inside of the Main Lobby and Main Lobby Stairs. Ash will then be able to position herself inside of Split and use the twin doorways into Meeting(A) as a good resource and attention waster for defenders while your team is carrying out the primary assault inside of Big Tower. Ash should be in close communication with the teammates inside of Big Tower so as to allow herself to time her final site execution as accurately as possible with the rest of the team pushing from the north.   STREET 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. Ash will most commonly be needed on this bomb site to assist the attacking team in establishing control inside of Construction and Barrel’s. The player should spawn with the bulk of the attacking team at Construction and communicate with supporting teammates to determine how defenders are holding Barrel’s. If Mira is not being used by defenders, Ash will typically be needed to use her flashbang grenades to eliminate any anti-projectile utility placed inside of the Barrel room so that the player can then use breaching rounds to destroy defenders' hard utility like Deployable Shields, Goyo Shields, and Maestro Evil Eye’s. After attackers have established control inside of Barrel, Ash should focus attention to the bottom of Big Tower Stairs so as to apply pressure onto defenders attempting to flank support teammates while they attempt to breach the Barrel wall leading into Laundry(A).     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.
