Guide for playing 'Montagne' on 'Outback'.

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.]

  Outback is a double-level map (consisting of two floors) found only in ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the defenders due to there being limited second floor access points. Although, an argument could be made for this being mitigated by the vertical advantages given to the attackers on the ground floor 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 LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] LAUNDRY(A) - GAMES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the top of Garage and the Shark Stairs second floor window. After establishing control over all second floor rooms east of Games(B), the attacking team will proceed to breach the reinforced wall between Mechanical Bull (Bull) and Games(B) as this will provide attackers with a direct route to plant the defuser inside of the Games(B) bomb site. Montagne will be the head of the attacking teams primary assault inside of Mechanical Bull. The player should breach the objective building through the second floor level of Garage and then steadily work their way from Garage through Office and Electrical. Additional attacking members should back Montagne as he maneuvers through the eastern portion of the second floor. This is because Montagne will be most valuable when he has teammates that he can provide actionable information to. After attackers have isolated defenders back into the bomb site, Montagne should maintain a position inside of the doorway connecting Mechanical Bull (‘Bull’) and Games(B). This will ensure flank protection for the attacking teams hard breacher while they open the reinforced Games(B) wall. Alternatively, Montagne could be positioned inside of Piano while having an additional support teammate like Thatcher or Capitao taking up Monty’s original position in Bull. However, this is an ideal way to protect the hard breacher in Bull as defenders still have the potential to swing on the Thermite as opposed to Monty being able to physically block the doorway.   FUEL PUMPS SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] PARTY(A) - OFFICE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team essentially executing the inverse attack plan used on the previous bomb site; the only difference here being over which rooms attackers need to establish control over. To ensure protection from any possible flanks, attackers should clear all second floor rooms west of Mechanical Bull and Shark Stairs and place some type of flank protection on Shark and Yellow Stairs - this is commonly taken care of by bringing a Nomad or Gridlock. Montagne will also mirror the attacking strategy used on the previously mentioned Laundry-Games. After attackers have successfully isolated defenders back into Bull, Montagne should maintain positioning in the same doorway as the previous site - only opposite in direction, so that the player is inside of Games and facing Mechanical Bull. This will accomplish the exact same purpose as used on the previous bomb site, only this time the player will push deeper into Bull after the wall has been breached and then take up a new position inside of the doorway connecting Mechanical Bull to Office(B). This will enable the attacking teams hard breacher to then open the reinforced wall separating Party(A) and Mechanical Bull without having to worry about exposure on their right-hand flank through the Office(B) bomb site. Monty will want to keep in mind his exposure to defenders in Party(A) after the wall has been breached and reposition himself accordingly. Typically, it is optimal for Montagne to push even deeper into Office(B) while this is going on and maintain a passive position inside of Office(B) so as to spend the remainder of the round as a reliable intel source.   CAMPING SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] NATURE(A) - BUSHRANGER(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the first floor Yellow Stair doorway located on the west of the building near the ‘Camping’ spawn location. After establishing control over the Nature Hallway and top of Yellow Stairs, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Nature Hallway and BushRanger room. Attackers will commonly send a few soft destructors like Buck, Sledge, or Zofia to the second floor to destroy the flooring of of Laundry and the adjacent hallways. This will expose defending anchors inside of Bushranger(B) and Nature(A) to vertical angles. Montagne will be used very simply on this bomb site by acting as a passive flank-watch (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH FLANK PROTECTION: Flank PROTECTION should eliminate the threat whereas flank WATCH should monitor for threat). The player should breach the objective building through first floor Reception and maintain positioning inside of the doorway connecting Reception to Reptile Hallway for the entire round. Although this may seem pointless, the influence this positioning has is incredibly valuable. This is because Montagne will essentially be removing Reception from the map for all on-site defenders, while also maintaining good positioning to flank WATCH on the bottom of Piano stairs. I emphasize the flank watch aspect of this role so heavily because, although this can be an influential position for Montagne, it is only as valuable as your teammates are capable of acting on the intel you provide. Attackers on the second floor will need to be hyper-aware of your callouts on the first floor to eliminate exposed defenders on Piano; otherwise, Montagne’s positioning is essentially nullified and the operator is wasted.   STORAGE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] COMPRESSOR(A) - GEAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the top of the 2F Garage (accessed through the west and east single windows) and through the 1F Main Entrance (accessed through the mud room double-doorways on the east of the building). After establishing the necessary control over Restaurant and Kitchen, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Kitchen and Compressor(A). Montagne will be used by the attacking team to establish the attacking teams initial presence inside of Compressor(A) .Monty should breach the objective building through first floor Reception and work his way through First floor Garage, near Lockers. The player will then need to stop and wait for the rest of the attacking team while they clear the second floor portion of Garage, otherwise Montagne can be easily exposed to defenders on the catwalk. After attackers have established full control over Garage, Montagne should maintain a Position inside of the doorway connecting Garage and Compressor(A). Attackers will then breach the reinforced wall separating Compressor(A) and Kitchen so as to allow themselves to pinch defenders back into Gear(B). After defenders are isolated to the secondary bomb site, Montagne will maintain the pressure on defenders by pressing deeper into Compressor(A) and physically block the doorway connecting the two bomb sites while an additional attacker plants the defuser behind the compressor.     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.   Discord - https://discord.com/invite/TjGAPdM
