Guide for playing 'Twitch' on 'Bank'.


[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.]

  Bank is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture gives a slight advantage to the attackers being able to have control over large portions of the map without entering the building.   ‘Twitch’ is a two speed, two armour, attacker. The operator's gadget is the Shock Drone; a retro-fitted attacking drone capable of shooting electrical projectiles remotely from the drone. This is a useful ability where it is capable of eliminating defender utility like Jager’s ADS, Mira Windows, defender Cameras, Mute Jammers, and much more. The primary role Twitch tends to play is that of a solo-entry. This is largely due to the operators primary weapon being the F-2 (One of the best weapons in the game and largely considered by the community to be one of, if not THE, best weapon for attackers). In addition to her strong primary, Twitch is set up for a solo-entry role really well due to her drone. The Shock Drone is not only capable of clearing valuable defender utility, but also has the added benefit of being nearly in-audible. This provides the player with huge advantages in terms of gathering defender intel for an extended period of time while also having the ability to assist teammates in clearing round-setting utilities like Mira Windows and Bandit Batteries.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, Twitch’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: F-2 Assault Rifle (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: P9 Hand-gun UTILITY: Breach Charges   Terminology: 1.) SOLO-ENTRY - Maintaining the weight of an entire assault through a particular route of attack as an individual player. 2.) ROUND-SETTING - A factor in an on-going round that will influence the result of the round in a significant way. [NOT to be confused with MATCH-SETTING which could be considered the ‘next-ring-up’ in that it would help describe the factors which influence the result of a match (Ex. Operator and Map ban phase).   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [2F] CEO(A) - EXECUTIVE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the second floor ‘Terrace’ located to the south east of the map. After gaining control over square stairs, the attackers will proceed to open the reinforced wall separating CEO(A) from Square as this will provide attackers with a direct route to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Twitch will add value to the attacking team on this bomb site by acting as an entry fragger as well as eliminating the defending teams gadget placed inside of Janitor and Long Desk. The operator should spawn Back Alley and breach the objective building through the second floor Stock Trading Room. Stock Trading will be crucial for attackers to maintain control over as it will be one of their primary beachheads from which they will carry out the rest of their attack on the second floor. After Twitch has helped attackers establish control inside of Stock Trading and Long Hallway, the player will use Twitch’s Shock Drone to eliminate any anti-projectile utility placed inside of Long Desk and Janitor. It is also common for defenders to use Mira Inside of Long Desk to prevent attackers from approaching Long through the Hallway. Twitch can help counter this by eliminating the Mira Windows with her Shock Drone. However, attackers should always have a back up plan as relying solely on a Twitch Drone to counter Mira is typically a gamble. Bring Habanna or Ace as these operators can throw their hard breaching gadgets on the Mira Window to destroy it.   BACK ALLEY SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] OPEN(A) - STAFF(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over the second floor as the entire ceiling of 1F Open(A)-Staff(B) is able to be destroyed in order to gain dynamic angles into the bomb site. Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by acting as a solo-entry at the bottom of Square Stairs. The operator should spawn Jewelry and use the Dirt Tunnel to access Server and Blue Stairs. After Twitch is established inside of the Objective Building, the player should diligently work their way up Blue Stairs and establish the initial attacker presence inside of Square Stairs. This will provide the attacking team with the ability to eliminate defenders attempting to use Archives as a roam route to return to the bomb site with. Twitch will also be well positioned to use her Shock Drone to eliminate any defending utility placed inside of Staff(B). Prioritize anti-projectile utility and trap gadgets placed by defenders in the Staff(B) double door so as to provide yourself with a clear route from which you can effectively entry into the bomb site through. Attackers will typically be applying vertical pressure onto the bomb site from the second floor Janitor and Stock Trading rooms, Twitch will be able to amplify this pressure by maintaining horizontal pressure onto defenders through Staff(B) as defenders will be forced to contest two different dimensions of attack simultaneously.   PARKING SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the second floor CEO Office as this will enable attackers to destroy the ceiling of the Tellers-Archives bomb site. Attackers will also focus on control of Kitchen and Open Area as this will enable attacking hard breachers like Hibanna and Thermite to breach the reinforced wall between Admin Office and Archives(B). Twitch will be used very similar to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned Open-Staff bomb sites. After breaching the building through Dirt Tunnel, Twitch should establish attacker control at the top of Blue Stairs. From this position, the player will be able to prevent defenders from rotating between Staff and Archives(B) as well as keep the player in an actionable position from which to act on intel as it is provided to you. Throughout most ranks, the Archives(B) side of the bomb site is commonly overlooked by defenders as they usually are spending the majority of their time and attention on the defense of the second floor CEO and Stock Trading. Twitch will be well positioned to take advantage of a weak Archives(B) defense as the player will have already established an attacker presence on Blue and Square Stairs.   NOTE: I use generalities to describe this flank being overlooked as it is not always and attackers should carefully assess the defensive setup of Archives(B) before rushing. In addition to this, attackers will need to maintain control of the top portion of Square Stairs. Otherwise, if attackers get stalled on 1F Square, they will be exposed to angles from Archives(B) as well as 2F Square.   JEWELRY SPAWN LOCATION:

    ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CCTV(A) - LOCKERS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the first floor Open Area and Kitchen as the hatches located on the floors are crucial in cutting off defenders rotating throughout the basement and two bomb sites. Twitch will assist attackers by using her Shock Drone to eliminate the defending teams utility inside of Blue Stairs and Server. Twitch should spawn Back Alley and breach the objective building though the first floor Printer Window. Attackers will then need to establish control inside of Staff and Open Area. After doing so, Twitch should use her Shock Drone to eliminate the defending team's anti-projectile utility placed at the top of Blue Stairs as there will almost always be a defending player in this position. It is critically important that the defending utility placed on Blue Stairs is eliminated. Failure to do so will result in a huge amount of attacker time and utility wasted on Blue Stairs control (NOTE: This could also result in a man disadvantage as defenders typically play this position with an Ela or Smoke shotgun - making it almost impossible to win the engagement without some kind of utility advantage).   After attackers establish Blue Stairs and Server control, Twitch will reposition to 1F Metal Detector and apply pressure down the Main (marble) Stairs into the basement. This will force defenders to carefully manage their on-site resources in order to prevent attackers from breaching the basement from either Main Stairs or Server - as a result, making it much easier for attackers to plant the defuser inside of CCTV(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.   Discord -
