Guide for playing 'Twitch' on 'Coastline'.


[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.]

Coastline is a double-level map (consisting of two floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map gives a large advantage to the attacking team due to the ease of access attackers have to map control from the outside of the objective 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 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] HOOKAH(A) - BILLIARDS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attackers entering the building through the first floor Sunrise Bar to apply vertical pressure from the first floor in addition to applying pressure onto Hookah(A) from the outside second floor Hookah Balcony and Hookah(A) window. Twitch will be used as a solo-entry for the attacking team by applying pressure onto the Billiards(B) bomb site from 2F Aquarium. The player should spawn at Ruins and carefully make their way up to the Aqua rappel (located directly outside of 1F Office). Always be careful spawning at Ruins as this spawn location is notorious for spawn peeking from Aqua Balcony and Sunrise window. After establishing an attacker presence inside of Aqua, Twitch should use her Shock Drone to eliminate the defending team's utility placed inside of Billiards(B). This will allow additional teammates to use their utility and gadgets (most notably, hand grenades) on defenders playing inside of the bomb site. After clearing defender gadgets, Twitch should then maintain pressure onto defenders inside of Billiards(B). The primary value that will be had here will be that Twitch can prevent defenders from being able to use the rotation hole between Hookah(A) and BIlliards(B). This will allow teammates positioned on Hookah Balcony to isolate defenders from the Hookah(A) bomb site much more easily as they will only need to worry about the Cool Vibe access points into Hookah(A).   POOL ENTRANCE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] THEATER(A) - PENTHOUSE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over the second floor VIP room from the second floor balcony located on the north side of the building. After gaining control over VIP and Hall of Fame, attackers will breach the reinforced wall between VIP and Penthouse(B) as this will provide attackers with a safe and clear pathway to the default plant spot in the corner of Penthouse(B) by the master bed. Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by establishing and maintaining pressure onto the defenders playing inside of Theater(A). This will allow attackers inside of Hall of Fame and VIP a lot more breathing room while attempting to establish control inside of Penthouse(A). Twitch should breach the second floor with the bulk of the attacking team inside of VIP. After attackers establish control inside of VIP and Hall of Fame, Twitch will then reposition to the Theater(B) hallway as this will allow the player to cut defenders off when attempting to flank attackers inside of VIP.   Remember, as a solo-entry your primary responsibility will be to maintain a secondary form of pressure. If an opportunity to establish attacker control inside of the bomb site presents itself then the player should act. Otherwise, Twitch should be prioritizing steady attacker pressure instead of round-setting plays.   MAIN ENTRANCE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] BLUE(A) - SUNRISE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering through the Pool Entrance located on the north western corner of the building. Attackers will also typically gain control of second floor Hookah as this will enable attacking soft destructors (Buck, Zofia, Ash, or Sledge) to destroy the ceiling of Sunrise and eliminate any defending anchors playing behind ‘couches’ or ‘bar’. Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by acting as an entry fragger for attackers establishing control on the second floor inside of Hookah and Billiards. The player should spawn with Buck and Sledge at Pool Entrance. From Pool, Twitch will rappel to the VIP Balcony and breach the objective building though VIP and execute a roam clear from VIP all the way into Billiards. After isolating defenders to the first floor, Twitch will then reposition to Cool Vibe Stairs and maintain this position until the close of the round. Cool Vibe Stairs control will accomplish two jobs: 1.) Protect second floor teammates from the Cool Vibe flank, 2.) maintain pressure on the first floor Kitchen Hallway. Kitchen Hallway pressure is important for attackers (and is often overlooked on this bomb site) as it will prevent defenders from being able to rotate between Kitchen, Blue(A), and Sunrise(B).   RUINS SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - SERVICE ENTRANCE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team planting the defuser inside of the doorway of service entrance leading to the outside exit - located on the eastern side of the building. Attackers will also commonly attempt control of the second floor VIP, Theater, and Penthouse rooms as this will allow attackers to destroy the ceiling of Kitchen(A) and Service(B). Twitch will provide value to the attacking team by acting as a solo-entry inside of Main Lobby. From this position the player will be able to prevent defenders from rotating back into Bathroom from Courtyard and Security. Main Lobby control will also position Twitch to maintain pressure inside of Bathroom. After teammates establish second floor control inside of Master Bedroom and breach the flooring, Twitch will be able to organize with teammates and apply horizontal pressure onto Bathroom while Sledge applies vertical pressure. Twitch will then have a perfect opportunity to maintain attacker control inside of Bathroom so as to allow additional teammates to plant the defuser inside of Service Entrance(B).     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 -

    I’m sorry but there is some things I disagree with in this post first of all the f-2 gun has the worst recoil in the game! It is extremely hard to control and will take a lot of practice so sorry I wouldn’t recommend this unless you use her marksman rifle which for me is hard to use because you have to click for every shot so yeah Um good luck

    You could use twitch's f2 with holographic so the recoil is easier to control, just saying.
