Guide for playing 'Blitz' on 'Bank'.

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.]

Bank is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture gives a slight advantage to the attackers being able to have control over large portions of the map without entering the building.   ‘Blitz’ is a two armour two speed, attacking operator. His ability is the ‘Flash Shield’, a portable body shield equipped with a flash-bang like blinding light on the front end of the shield. This gadget is particularly useful for blinding enemies as they are shooting at the operator. Additionally, Blitz is most commonly used for the operator's ability to run with his shield deployed in front of him. As a result, this makes Blitz a phenomenal choice for an attacking teams entry fragger. This is because the operator is able to gather intel safely while also being capable of maintaining a high enough level of mobility to effectively act on the opportunities presented to him during the attacking teams initial entry. NOTE: Blitz is much more vulnerable to defender nitro-cell than alternative attacking shield operators, like Montagne. This means that Blitz will want to be cautious of defenders with nitro-cell - especially in CQC environments.   LOADOUT: PRIMARY: N/A SECONDARY: P-2 HANDGUN (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: Smoke Grenades x 3   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [2F] CEO(A) - EXECUTIVE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the second floor ‘Terrace’ located to the south east of the map. After gaining control over square stairs, the attackers will proceed to open the reinforced wall separating CEO(A) from Square as this will provide attackers with a direct route to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Blitz will provide the largest amount of value to the attacking team by establishing the initial attacker map control on the second floor inside of Square Stairs. To do this, Blitz should breach the objective building through the second floor Square Balcony. From here, Blitz will then proceed to eliminate defenders playing on the second floor inside of Janitor Closet and Stock Trading. This will then allow additional supporting teammates (Thatcher/Thermite) to breach the CEO(A) reinforced wall separating the bomb site from Square Stairs.   NOTE: Blitz should spend the majority of the round establishing control over the second floor hallways adjacent to the objective rooms. This is because additional teammates will then be able to take up positions behind you inside of Meeting and ‘Banana’ (curved Main Lobby balcony).   BACK ALLEY SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] OPEN(A) - STAFF(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control over the second floor as the entire ceiling of 1F Open(A)-Staff(B) is able to be destroyed in order to gain dynamic angles into the bomb site. Blitz will spend the majority of the round assisting teammates in establishing full control over the second floor inside of Square, Stock Trading, Janitor, and Executive. Defenders will typically invest a large amount of man-power and resources to the defense of the second floor as the ceiling of Open(A) is completely soft. This means that defenders will have to have a second floor presence - otherwise, the entire bomb site will be vulnerable to vertical pressure. Blitz will help counter these off-site defenders by acting as the attacking teams ‘hot-entry’ (or just a fast paced entry). This will force defenders to split their attentions on the second floor unevenly while Blitz and additional attackers apply pressure from varying directions like that of Stock, Square, Kanto, and Main Skylight.   NOTE: It is important that attackers clearly communicate amongst themselves intel as it is being collected. This is because information that may not be directly relevant to you may be critical information for a teammate positioned at a different part of the map. In some cases, this creates opportunities for the attacking team that might have not been seen had the callout not been made.   JEWELRY SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the second floor CEO Office as this will enable attackers to destroy the ceiling of the Tellers-Archives bomb site. Attackers will also focus on control of Kitchen and Open Area as this will enable attacking hard breachers like Hibanna and Thermite to breach the reinforced wall between Admin Office and Archives(B). Blitz will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by establishing the initial first floor map control inside of Open Area and Kitchen. This will then allow the attacking teams supporting operators (Thatcher/Thermite) to take up positions inside of Open Area and Breach the reinforced wall separating OPen and Archives(B). After the wall has been breached, Blitz should then reposition through the Kitchen and apply horizontal pressure onto the Archives(B) bomb site from the first floor portion of Square Stairs. This will provide attackers with multiple directions of pressure when attempting to plant the defuser inside of Archives(B). As a result, this will force defenders to reposition into Tellers(A) due to there being no viable positions to defend from inside of Archives(B).   PARKING SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CCTV(A) - LOCKERS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of the first floor Open Area and Kitchen as the hatches located on the floors are crucial in cutting off defenders rotating throughout the basement and two bomb sites. Blitz will be used by the attacking team on this bomb site to establish the attacking teams primary control inside of Server and Blue Stairs. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through the Dirt Tunnel and steadily apply pressure onto defenders playing inside of Server. Blitz should be cautious with where the operator positions himself inside of Server while contesting control over Server. This is because there will likely be more than one defender playing inside of Server and Blue Stairs; leaving Blitz vulnerable to a cross-fire between the two defending players positioned here.   To counter this, Blitz will need to communicate the cross-fire to additional first floor teammates inside of Kitchen so as to have the attacking teams primary assault flush out defenders playing on Blue Stairs. This will then allow Blitz to safely apply direct pressure onto remaining defenders playing behind ‘server rack’ inside of Server.     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
