Guide for playing 'Twitch' 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.   ‘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: [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). Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by assisting teammates in establishing control inside of Christmas and Cigar. After attackers have breached through the hatch located on the roof of the objective building, Twitch will use her Shock Drone to eliminate the entry denial utility placed on the Red Stairs wall. This will provide attackers with a much safer route into Cigar and successfully eliminate defenders inside of Christmas. Twitch will then need to use her Shock Drone to eliminate the entry denial utility placed on the Freezer wall. This will allow attackers to prevent defenders from being able to rotate through the Freezer while attackers attempt to plant the diffuser inside of Bar(A).   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 very similar to the previously covered Bar-Cocktail bomb site. After attackers have breached the building, Twitch will assist teammates in establishing full control of the third floor. Twitch will then use breaching charges to open the flooring of the third floor so as to expose defenders positioned on the second. After third floor control is established, Twitch will then want to rotate to the second floor and take up an offensive position in Mining (if the bomb site is FIREPLACE(A) - MINING(B)) or Pillar (if the bomb site is READING(A) - FIREPLACE(B)). This is for the purpose of maintaining horizontal pressure onto defenders while additional teammates are applying vertical pressure from the third floor. Defenders will be forced to either expose themselves to third floor attackers if they engage you or expose themselves to you if they are to engage your teammates playing vertical inside of Cocktail.   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. Twitch will add value to the attacking team by assisting the team's soft-destructors (Buck and Sledge) in establishing control over the second floor Mining and Train Rooms. Twitch should breach the objective building through the third floor Red Stairs Hatch so as to establish some map control above where the defending roamers will be. This is advantageous for attackers as it will provide the attacking teams roam clear with a little bit more breathing room while assessing the situation of the second floor. Twitch should then communicate with Buck and Sledge while they drone the second floor for off-site defenders. NOTE: In order to be an effective entry fragger, Twitch will need to be a proactive player. This means to be confident in your gun fights and to trust the intel your team gives you. Your supporting teammates are taking the time to drone for you and are counting on you to capitalize on the intel they gather. You must be able to effectively win gunfights if you are to be taking an entry-fragging role. A successful roam clear is critical for attacker time management - especially on a map as big as Kafe.   CHRISTMAS SPAWN LOCATION:
