Guide for playing 'Blitz' on 'Kafe'.

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.]

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.   ‘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: [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). Blitz will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by eliminating the defending teams off-site presence inside of Cigar and then maintaining further pressure onto defenders inside of White Hallway. To do this, Blitz should breach the objective building through Red Stairs Hatch (located on the roof of the objective building) so as to establish the attacking teams initial map control on Red Stairs. From here, Blitz will then communicate with additional supporting teammates as they drone the third floor Cigar-Christmas so as to deduce the defending teams set-up.   When contesting control over Cigar and Christmas, Blitz will want to be sure to listen to the exact information given to him by supporting teammates. This is because it is common for defenders to have a significant presence inside of Cigar as a way of preventing attackers from breaching the Freezer wall. In the event that there are multiple defenders inside of Cigar using a crossfire setup, Blitz will need to wait for additional teammates to help eliminate defenders by rappelling on the Cigar windows. Not doing so will almost invariably result in Blitz losing the advantage to the defending teams cross-fire.   PARK SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  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 by establishing control over the third floor (similar to the way in which attackers played on the previous bomb site). Blitz will breach the objective building through the third floor Red Hatch and proceed to establish the attacking teams initial map control on the third floor on Red Stairs and New Hatch. From here, Blitz will communicate with additional attacking teammates so as to effectively eliminate all defenders positioned on the third floor. This can be tricky to do as an attacking team as all third floor defenders will have local hatches with which they can quickly escape to the second floor with. In addition to easy disengagement, defenders positioned inside of Freezer and Cocktail will be immediately supported by second floor defenders with nitro-cell. In fact, nitro-cell can be incredibly dangerous when establishing third floor control as defenders positioned on the third floor can easily ping the locations of attackers for supporting on-site defenders to use their nitro-cell on.   After assisting attacking teammates in establishing complete third floor control, Blitz will then reposition to the second floor Pillar and Brown Stairs so as to be centrally located on the second floor; positioning Blitz to apply pressure onto any second floor bomb site in a short amount of time. This mobility in positioning is important because attackers may want to focus one room over another at varying intervals of time. So long as Blitz is in a central position on the second floor, the operator will be able to amplify the pressure third floor teammates are applying vertically in a very short amount of time.   RIVER 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. Blitz will provide value on this bomb site by acting as the attacking teams primary entry fragger at the start of the round. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through the first floor Big Baker (also called Main Bakery). Before actually breaching the building, Blitz will want to communicate with teammates so as to determine the defending teams defensive set-up inside of Big Bakery, Small Bakery, and Prep. Defenders will commonly dedicate a large portion of resources to the defense of Bakery and Small Bakery as losing this map control will allow attackers to breach the Bakery wall and plant the defuser.   Luckily for Blitz, the only vertical angles defenders have available are ones on the ceiling of Prep. This means that Blitz will only need to worry about defender crossfires set up across Bakery, Small Bakery, and Prep. Attackers typically eliminate these crossfires by applying pressure through the Small Bakery window and breaching the Prep wall with Hibanna or Ace. After neutralizing the defenders first floor crossfires, Blitz will then be able to focus pressure onto the remaining defenders playing inside of Big Bakery. After attacking hard breachers open the Bakery-Cooking(B) wall, Blitz will then be able to apply further pressure inside of the bomb site so as to provide active cover for the attacking teams dedicated planter as they stick the defuser.   CHRISTMAS SPAWN LOCATION:
