Guide for playing 'Montagne' on 'Chalet'.


[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.]

  Chalet is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found only in Ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the attackers due to the vertical destruction available to attackers found on all four bomb sites.   ‘Montagne’ is a three armor, 1 speed, attacker. The operator is equipped with an ‘Extendable Ballistics Shield’ which provides the player with the ability to fully extend the shield down to the operators feet so that the player is completely protected from all forms of damage (excluding Toxic Canisters thrown by Smoke and Gu Mine’s thrown by Lesion). Montagne is used very heavily in the current game meta due to the operator being a virtually indestructible drone so long as supporting teammates are watching his rear flank. The most common way to use Montagne is to aggressively contest map control while being backed by additional teammates. Montagne is considered to be most valuable due to the operator being able to win a face-to-face melee duel in any situation due to the TTM (time-to-melee) being faster than the default TTM. However, this can occasionally be countered by a three speed defender if the defender has the room and free-space to out maneuver Montagne and melee him in the side while he is still in the unshielding animation.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Montagne’s loadout should be as follows: SECONDARY: P9 Hand-gun UTILITY: Smoke Grenades x 2   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - TROPHY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical angles over and under Kitchen(A)-Trophy(B) by gaining control over 2F Master Bedroom, 2F Office, and BSMNT Car Garage. Due to attackers needing control over the Big Garage in the basement, Montagne will be able provide value to the attacking team by protecting Buck while he uses his shotgun on the flooring of the bomb site. Monty should breach the BIg Garage with Buck and help him by securing the Big Garage. After attackers have successfully eliminated defenders inside of Big Garage, Montagne can provide further protection for Buck by watching his only flank route which is the single doorway inside of Big Garage leading to the bottom of West Main Stairs and Trench. This strategy is impossible for defenders to get around unless a defender inside of Trophy(B) drops the hatch from Trophy(B) into Big Garage though Buck will typically be positioned behind you and be able to eliminate any defender attempting to use this flank route.   CLIFFSIDE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] GAMING(A) - BAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering and clearing the building from 2F Master Bedroom on the west side of the building all the way to the east of the building, concluding their roam clear after establishing control inside of the Library. Montagne will be most useful on this bomb site by breaching the objective building with the rest of the team inside of Master Bedroom. From 2F Master Bedroom, Monty should lead the primary attacker assault on the second floor up to the Library. Attackers should then use Montagne as an indestructible drone to gather intel on defender positions on the remainder of the second floor. After attackers have established control over the second floor Library, Monty can then reposition to the outside of Gaming(A) and plant the defuser inside of the doorway leading from the outside into Gaming(A).   LAKESIDE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] OFFICE(A) - MASTER BEDROOM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will essentially just be the inverse of Gaming-Bar. Entering through the Library and moving from east to west inside of the building is a much safer route to the second floor bomb sites as attackers can be easily shot if caught trying to repel directly onto the Master Bedroom balcony or climb the Front Yard ladder to the second floor. Monty will be used identically to the way the operator was used on the previously mentioned Gaming-Bar. Steadily push deeper into the objective building with the support of attacking teammates behind you. Communicate the intel you gather as you are maneuvering through the second floor as this will allow your teammates to be much more effective in acting on the intel you collect. Always remember, Montagne is only a useful pick if the attackers value and utilize the operator correctly.   FRONT YARD SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] WINE(A) - SNOWMOBILE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced exterior wall leading from the buildings southern exterior into Snowmobile(B). Monty can be incredibly valuable on this bomb site by assisting the attacking team in eliminating the defending teams entry denial operator on the main wall. Montagne should breach the objective building through Gaming and steadily work his way through the southern portion of the map - concluding his initial breach at the bottom of Blue Stairs. Montagne should then communicate with the attacking teams Hard Breacher while they are attempting to breach the wall. This will help the player know when to collapse his shield and attempt to shoot the defending teams Kaid or Bandit as they try to trick the wall. After attackers have opened the main wall inside of Snowmobile(B), Monty should press deeper into the bomb site so as to prevent defenders from being able to stop attackers from planting the defuser inside of Snowmobile(B).   CAMPFIRE SPAWN LOCATION:
