Guide for playing 'IQ' on 'Chalet'.

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.]

  Chalet is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found only in Ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the attackers due to the vertical destruction available to attackers found on all four bomb sites.   ‘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 LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - TROPHY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical angles over and under Kitchen(A)-Trophy(B) by gaining control over 2F Master Bedroom, 2F Office, and BSMNT Car Garage. After establishing 2F control, attackers will then proceed to the first floor level of West Main stairs and breach the reinforced wall separating Trophy(B) and West Main. IQ will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by assisting buck in establishing control over Big Garage, located inside of the basement. IQ should spawn at Campfire and act as an entry fragger with the intel that Buck gathers on his drone in order to successfully eliminate all defenders playing inside of Big Garage and Trench. After isolating roamers from the northern portion of the basement, IQ will then use her Electronics Detector to eliminate the entry-denial gadgets placed on the reinforced wall separating Trophy(B) and West Main. This will then allow the attacking teams Ace or Thermite to breach the Trophy(B) wall and plant the defuser inside of Trophy(B).   CLIFFSIDE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] GAMING(A) - BAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering and clearing the building from 2F Master Bedroom on the west side of the building all the way to the east of the building, concluding their roam clear after establishing control inside of the Library. IQ will be most influential on this bomb site by assisting the attacking team in a full second floor roam clear. IQ should spawn with the rest of the attacking team at Campfire and breach the objective building through the second floor Master Bedroom and Bathroom. After eliminating players on the northern end of the second floor, IQ will move with the rest of the attacking towards Library so as to eliminate all second floor defenders and isolate them to the first floor. IQ will then use her Electronics Detector to eliminate all defender gadgets placed inside of Bar(B) and Gaming(A). This will greatly benefit the attacking teams final site execution as it will allow attackers to confidently entry onto the bomb site and plant the defuser without having to worry about additional defenders gadgets like Echo Drones, Gu Mines, or Kapkan Traps.   LAKESIDE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] OFFICE(A) - MASTER BEDROOM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will essentially just be the inverse of Gaming-Bar. Entering through the Library and moving from east to west inside of the building is a much safer route to the second floor bomb sites as attackers can be easily shot if caught trying to repel directly onto the Master Bedroom balcony or climb the Front Yard ladder to the second floor. IQ will assist teammates on this bomb site by breaching the objective building through the basement, inside of BIg Garage. After establishing an attacker presence inside the basement, IQ will work her way up West Main Stairs to the first floor and eliminate all defenders playing inside of Trophy, Kitchen, and Dining. This will be an incredibly important job for attackers as it is common for defenders to position a Valkyrie or Pulse on the first floor, underneath the bomb site, so as to allow defenders to eliminate on-site attackers with Nitro Cell. IQ be a counter to this by eliminating these defenders and maintaining first floor positioning.   NOTE: IQ is capable of using her Electronic Gadget through flooring to detect when a defender attempts to disable the defuser after the defuser has been planted. This can be useful if the operator maintains positioning inside of Dining after the defuser has been planted as IQ will be able to prevent defenders from disabling the defuser through the flooring of Office(A).   FRONT YARD SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [BSMNT] WINE(A) - SNOWMOBILE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced exterior wall leading from the buildings southern exterior into Snowmobile(B). IQ will provide the most amount of value to the attacking team by acting as a counter to the defending team's entry-denial utility placed inside of Snowmobile(B). IQ should breach the objective building through the first floor West Main double door. After establishing attacker control on the West Main Stairs, IQ will proceed through Dining and Fireplace so as to eliminate and isolate defenders into Snowmobile(B) that were previously positioned on the first floor. This will then allow the operator to use breach charges on the flooring of Fireplace so as to expose defenders inside of Snowmobile(B). Additionally, IQ will be able to eliminate the Mira window placed on the rotation wall inside of Wine(A) and, as a result, allow attackers to successfully plant the defuser inside of Snowmobile(B). IQ can also use her gadget to eliminate the defending teams intel placed inside of Snowmobile(A) so as to eliminate the defending teams Echo Drones, Valkyrie Cameras, and Pulses Cardiac Sensor.   CAMPFIRE SPAWN LOCATION:
