Guide for playing 'Montagne' on 'Kafe'.


[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.]

    Kafe is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the building is fairly balanced since the rework of the map.   ‘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: [3F] BAR(A) - COCKTAIL(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over Cigar. This will allow attackers to breach the reinforced wall separating Cigar and Freezer and, in turn, flush out any defenders playing inside of Freezer. After eliminating defenders inside of the Freezer, attackers will attempt to plant the defuser under the cover of smoke behind one of the wooden counters inside of Bar(A). Montagne will act as the head of the attacking teams assault into Cigar and Christmas on the third floor. Monty should breach the objective building through the Red Stairs hatch located on the roof. The player should steadily work their way through the third floor Cigar and into Christmas with the support of teammates behind you as to clear the western portion of the third floor of all defending players. After attackers have established full control inside of Christmas, Monty will spend the rest of the round maintaining control over the doorway connecting White Hall and Christmas. This will provide the attacking teams hard breacher with flank protection from White Stairs and Bathroom as they breach the Freezer wall.   PARK SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] FIREPLACE(A) - MINING(B) + [2F] READING(A) - FIREPLACE(B) Due to these two bomb sites being so similar in nature, both bomb sites will be covered in one section of the guide.   Attackers will begin the round by establishing control over the third floor (similar to the way in which attackers played on the previous bomb site). After the attacking team has isolated all defensive presence to the second floor, Montagne should maintain control over the second floor landing of White Stairs. Although this won’t apply immediate pressure onto second floor defenders, Montagne will still be able to gather a ton of real-time intel on the defending team in terms of defender positioning. This will be valuable for the attacking team as a whole when considering how to execute their final site push at the end of the round.   RIVER DOCKS SPAWN LOCATION:

    ATTACKING: [1F] SERVICE(A) - COOKING(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of Large and Small Bakery. This will allow attacking hard breachers like Thermite and HIbanna to breach the reinforced wall between Cooking(B) and Large Bakery. It is common for defenders like Kaid or Bandit to trick the Bakery-Cooking wall due to Cooking(B) being nearly impossible to defend after the wall has been breached. Montagne will be used as flank prevention for the attacking team inside of Small Bakery. After attackers have established control over Large Bakery, Monty should then continue his push into Small Bakery and use his shield fully extended as to prevent attackers from being able to use Small Bakery as a flank route. Montagne should maintain this positioning even after the defuser has been planted as a post-plant situation is one of the most common time frames for defenders to flank.   CHRISTMAS MARKET SPAWN LOCATION:
