Guide for playing 'IQ' on 'Club House'.

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.]

  Clubhouse is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map can favor either attackers or defenders depending upon which team wins the ban phase, as well as which site is being played.   ‘IQ’ is a 1 armour, 3 speed attacker. The operators’ ability is known as the Electronics Detector; a portable electronic gadget worn on the operators wrist which is capable of detecting electronics through any surface. IQ is most commonly used for eliminating hard to reach electronics like Bandit Batteries and Mute Jammers as the Electronic Detector allows the player to see this type of utility through walls and flooring. IQ is also used as a counter to operators like Pulse, Echo, Vigil, and Valkyrie as all of these defenders have utility that is difficult to counter with the naked eye. In fact, when operators like Vigil and Pulse are actively using their ability, IQ is able to see their electronics in use through any surface. This is also the case with any defenders that happen to be caught on their phone looking through the defending teams cameras as the phone itself is considered to be an electronic device. IQ is always a great operator choice for these reasons as well as the operator being capable of acting as a strong backup entry-fragger for the attacking team in the case of attackers losing their original entry at the beginning of the round.   If you are to be in accordance with the current meta, IQ’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: G8-A1 (holo-graphic + flash hider) SECONDARY: P-12 (suppressed) UTILITY: Breach Charge x 3   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIIONS:

  ATTACKING: [2F] CASH(A) - CCTV(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the east reinforced wall inside of CCTV(B) (also known as ‘Platform wall’) as this will provide a direct route for attackers to plant the defuser behind ‘Server Rack’ located inside of the CCTV bomb site. IQ will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by breaching the first floor Lounge and clearing all defenders playing inside of Lounge, Blue, Stock, and Bar. After isolating defenders to the second floor, IQ will then use her Electronics Detector to eliminate the defending team's entry-denial utility placed on the CCTV(B) wall through the ceiling of 1F Lounge. This will allow the attacking teams hard breacher to open the reinforced wall separating Platform and CCTV(B). Attackers will then be able to access the bomb site and plant the diffuser inside of the default plant spot by ‘server rack’.   NOTE: Before planting inside of CCTV(B), attackers will first need to completely clear both the first floor and second floor portions of the Garage. Not doing so will allow defenders to flank attackers through Lounge and Garage.   CONSTRUCTION SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] BEDROOM(A) - GYM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall between outside ‘jacuzzi’ and the bedroom/gym hallway (commonly known as Jacuzzi wall). After breaching the Jacuzzi wall, attackers will attempt to plant the defuser inside of Gym(B). Attackers will also commonly dedicate a large amount of time and resources to gain control over 2F Construction. IQ will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by eliminating the defending teams intel gadgets placed throughout the second floor. IQ should breach the objective building through the second floor CCTV window while communicating with additional supporting teammates as they drone her entry into Construction. After isolating all defenders back into Master Bedroom and Gym, IQ will use her Electronics Detector to eliminate the defending teams intel utility. IQ should always be prioritizing Yokai drones and Pulses Cardiac Sensor as these will be the defending teams primary means of preventing the attacking team from planting the defuser.   NOTE: Defenders will commonly have a presence on the first floor inside of Bar so as to be positioned to eliminate attackers inside of Gym(B) and Bedroom(A) as they attempt to plant the defuser. IQ is occasionally used to help clear these defenders by acting as either a supporting teammate (wherein the player drones for the attacking teams entry fragger) or as the active entry (wherein the player is the head of the attacking teams roam clear). IQ will need to be flexible on this bomb site as both tasks may be required from the player.   MAIN GATE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] BAR(A) - STOCK(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team planting the defuser inside of one of the two doorways located inside of Stock(B). Although the attackers have a very direct route to the bomb site from the outside, successfully planting the defuser inside of Stock(B) can be difficult due the exposure attackers are under from ‘stage’ (located inside of Bar(A). IQ will be most useful on this bomb site by acting as an entry fragger for the attacking team in addition to being a counter to the defending teams intel operators. IQ should spawn at Warehouse and breach the objective building through Garage. After establishing attacker control on both the first and second floor of Garage, IQ will want to maintain pressure on defenders by steadily establishing control inside of Lounge. This will be valuable positioning for the attacking team as it will allow attackers to prevent defenders from being able to safely rotate between the two bomb sites. This is because Defenders will only be able to access Stock(B) through the rotation hole connecting Stock(B) to Stage - which is a highly contested rotation due to the angles attackers have access to from the Stock(B) east doorway. IQ will maintain the positioning inside of Lounge for the remainder of the round so as to provide cover to attacking teammates inside of Stock(B) while the defuser is being planted.   NOTE: Don’t forget that IQ has the ability to detect and eliminate the defending teams cameras. The player should use this to their full advantage by first scanning for any defender gadgets placed inside of Stock(B) and eliminating them BEFORE the defuser is planted. It is important that attackers eliminate as much intel utility as possible before the defuser is planted as the more intel defenders have access to in a post-plant scenario, the easier it will be for them to retake the bomb site.   SHIPPING DOCK SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CHURCH(A) - ARSENAL (B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical control over the bomb sites by opening the hatches located on the ceiling of ‘Moto connector’ and Arsenal(B). To do this, attackers will first need to gain control of the first floor. IQ will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by eliminating the defending teams Pulse playing inside of Arsenal(B). The player should breach the objective building through the Freezer doorway leading into Kitchen. However, all attacking players need to be highly cautious of playing inside of Kitchen. This is because defenders will commonly use a nitro-cell on the ceiling of Arsenal(B) to eliminate first floor attackers from the basement. IQ will act as a counter to this as her Electronic Detector can detect nitro-cell as well as Pulse when the operator is using his Cardiac Sensor. With a few well calculated bullets, IQ is capable of eliminating Pulse as his head will always be directly underneath the Cardiac Sensor whenever the sensor is detected vertically by IQ.   NOTE: Even after attackers have eliminated the defending teams Pulse, attackers will still need to be cautious when playing inside of Kitchen. It is typically common practice to have as brief of a physical presence inside of Kitchen as possible. Although the vertical angles that are provided from this position are highly valuable, attackers will be safest when holding the angles from adjacent rooms or whenever on top of furniture inside of Kitchen.   WAREHOUSE SPAWN LOCATION:
