Guide for playing 'Twitch' on 'Kanal'.

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.]

  Kanal is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play though that may be subject to change as the developers could add the map to the pro-league map roster after observing how the map plays now. The current architecture of the map is fairly balanced, advantages will change based on which site is being played and how the ban phase plays out at the beginning of the match.   ‘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 as 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] SERVER(A) - RADAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall on the south side of ‘Renovations’ as this will provide the attackers with clear lines of sight directly into Radar(B) in addition to direct access to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by establishing and maintaining attacker control inside of the Red and Green Hallways located adjacently to the Server(A) bomb site. This positioning will be critically important for attackers to have as it will allow Twitch to quickly act on openings in the defending teams setup as they will inevitably become apparent after the Renovations wall has been breached. Twitch will also be accomplishing a secondary task in that the operator will be able to completely prevent defenders from being able to use the hallway as a means of running out on teammates positioned on the outside of the building. In addition to this, the player will also be positioned to eliminate off-site defenders attempting to use Red and Green stairs to rotate back into the bomb site.   FLOATING DOCK SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] COAST GUARD(A) - LOUNGE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of ‘Scuba’ and ‘Printer’ stairs, as well as the hallway-landing which separates the two. After establishing control of the northern stairwells, attackers will want to breach the reinforced wall between the lower-printer-stairs-landing and Lounge(B). This will completely expose the Lounge(B) bomb site as well as position attackers to plant the defuser in a variety of different safe plant spots inside of the B bombsite. Twitch will be used as an entry fragger for the attacking team while control over Printer and Scuba stairs is being established. Twitch should communicate with supporting teammates as they drone the objective building for off-site defenders. As an entry fragger, it is critical that you can effectively act on the intel provided to you by teammates. Failure to do so typically results in attackers having to spend large amounts of time chasing the defending teams roamer throughout the building. This will then require attackers to dedicate players to flank watch if the roamer isn't caught. Although this is not always a bad thing, flank-dedicated players have their drawbacks. Most notably of which being the fact that they can’t stop watching a flank until the round is complete otherwise they expose themselves and teammates to the flank.   CONSTRUCTION SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] KAYAKS(A) - SUPPLY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers gaining control of the first floor inside of Coast Guard and Lounge as the hatches located on the floors of these two rooms offer great lines of site and access points to the basement. It is very common for defenders to be playing inside of Bathroom and Lockers, located directly across the hall from the bomb sites in the basement. Twitch should act as a solo-entry on this bomb site through the Diving double window located in the basement. At the beginning of the round, Twitch should position herself near the Diving Window so as to be ready to quickly establish a presence inside of Diving after she eliminates defender utility placed in and around Diving and Scuba. Although this is a role which can be easily accomplished with Ash, defenders will hear Ash’s breaching round as it explodes inside of Diving. The advantage of using Twitch is that the operator Shock Drone will maintain a low-profile presence for Twitch when she has breached the Diving. If defenders hear attackers breaching Scuba, they will typically position one player on Diving Stairs and one player near the Oxy Tanks so as to establish a cross-fire. This makes it highly difficult for a single player to successfully establish full control of Diving. Therefore, stealth will be the players biggest advantage in a solo-entry Diving take.   SAILBOATS SPAWN LOCATION:

    ATTACKING: [1F] SECURITY(A) - MAP(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team establishing control over the second floor Server and Radar rooms located directly above the bomb site. The ceiling of Security(A)-Map(B) is destructible, making it advantageous for attackers to first focus on control of the second floor. Twitch should be used as a solo-entry inside of Museum while the primary attacking force is establishing control of the second floor Server and Radar. The player should breach the building though the bottom of Red Stairs and carefully work their way to the first floor landing. This will position the player to effectively cut the Map(B) bomb site in half as the doorway connecting Map(A) to Museum is centered directly in the middle of the bomb site. From Red Stairs, Twitch will be accomplishing two important tasks: 1.) Twitch will be maintaining horizontal pressure onto defenders inside of Map(B) while attacking teammates are applying vertical pressure onto both bomb sites from the second floor 2.) Twitch will be protecting the Red and Green Stairs flank that attacking teammates are exposed to on the second floor. From this position, attackers will only need to worry about a potential flank coming from the 2F Sky Bridge in addition to having a player positioned on the first floor to quickly establish an attacker presence on the bomb site as soon as an opening is made.     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

    Personally, Twitch’s gun is in a bad place rn considering the recoil is now amped up so it’s harder for the average player to control. I wouldn’t consider it as one of the best anymore.
