Guide for playing 'Blitz' on 'Oregon'.

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.]

  Oregon is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play. Although, this is subject to change. The map has recently undergone a rework by Ubisoft and will be left in ranked to see how viable the map is for high-level competitive play.   ‘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] KIDS(A) - DORMS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Big Tower located on the north side of the building. After establishing control over all of Big Tower, attackers will breach the reinforced wall on the second floor level of Big Tower separating Attic and Big Tower. This will then provide attackers with a clear pathway through the Attic to get into the Kids(A) bomb site and plant the defuser. Blitz will provide value on this bomb site by acting as the attacking teams entry fragger in establishing initial map control inside of Big Tower and Attic. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through the first floor portion of Big Tower (also commonly referred to as ‘T1’) and thoroughly clear the entirety of Big Tower of all defensive presence. This will then allow the attacking teams supporting teammates (Thermite and Thatcher) to breach the reinforced wall separating T2 and Attic.   After the Attic wall has been breached, Blitz will then be the head of the attacking teams primary assault through Attic. Attackers will have the map control necessary to eliminate defenders playing inside of Kids(A) and plant the defuser. In addition to the site control, attackers will also be isolating defenders from the bomb site as the only viable flank routes left for defenders will be through the Attic doorway or Dorms(B) doorway.   NOTE: Attic will be the optimal route for Blitz to attack the bomb site from as it is almost impossible for defenders to set-up crossfires inside of due to the rooms linear design.   MAIN ENTRANCE SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - DINING(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Small tower located on the western most part of the building. After establishing control over Small Tower, attackers will attempt to breach the reinforced wall inside of 1F Small tower which separates the first floor Small Tower and Kitchen(A) bomb site. Blitz will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by establishing the initial map control needed inside of Small Tower in order to breach the reinforced Dining(B) wall. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through either the first or second floor portion of Small Tower so as to eliminate all defensive presence. After doing so, additional supporting attackers will be able to take up positioning inside of Small Tower and open the reinforced wall separating Dining(B) and Small Tower.   While Thatcher and Thermite are applying the primary pressure onto the Dining(B) bomb site from Small Tower, Blitz should reposition to the Showers hallway so as to cut off any defender rotations between Freezer Hallway, Dining(B), and White Stairs. This will then leave defenders with only a single route to access the Dining(B) bomb site from (Kitchen(A) doorway); making it almost impossible for defenders to successfully execute a retake in a post-plant situation.   JUNKYARD SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] MEETING(A) - KITCHEN(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Big Tower located on the northernmost side of the building. After establishing control over the first floor Big Tower (T1), attackers will proceed to breach the reinforced wall separating the first floor level of Big Tower and the Meeting(A) bomb site. Blitz will be used similar to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned Kids-Dorms bomb site by acting as the attacking teams primary entry fragger inside of Big Tower. The player should communicate with supporting teammates while clearing the Big Tower precisely as it was cleared on the first bomb site. After establishing the attacking teams supporting operators inside of Big Tower, Blitz will then reposition over to Kitchen Hallway so as to maintain pressure onto the northern portion of Kitchen(B).   Maintaining first floor Kitchen Hallway control will be advantageous for attackers for two primary reasons: 1) Defenders inside of Kitchen(B) will be forced to dedicate man-power and utility towards contesting the pressure applied by Blitz in the Kitchen(B) doorway, 2) Blitz will be actively protecting supporting teammates’ Kitchen Hallway flank as they attempt to execute site control inside of Meeting(A) from Big Tower and Split.   CONSTRUCTION SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [BSMNT] LAUNDRY(A) - SUPPLY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through Barrel/Construction rooms located on the northwestern side of the building inside of the basement. After establishing control over Construction, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Construction and Supply(B). The key to a successful attacking round in the basement is to have a multi-directional assault while also having a really heavy primary assault. Blitz will be used on this bomb site to apply attacker pressure inside of Freezer. To do this, Blitz will want to breach the objective building through the Small Tower so as to then proceed to roam clear the west portion of the first floor; eliminating defenders inside of Small Tower, Laundry, Dining, Server, and White Stairs. After attackers have successfully isolated all defenders back into the basement, Blitz will then act as a solo-entry inside of Freezer so as to effectively eliminate all defenders inside of Freezer and force them to reposition inside of Supply(B).   So long as Blitz can maintain control inside of the doorway connecting Freezer to Long Hallway, defenders will only be able to rotate between the two bomb sites by using the Laundry Connector closet. In addition to Blitz being able to prevent defenders from using the Long Hallway to flank attackers inside of Pillar, the operator will also be well positioned to gather up-to-date intel on defenders playing inside of Supply(B).   Among all of the advantages that come from Blitz's’ positioning inside of Freezer, the most notable will be the player's ability to eliminate the defending teams Kaid or Bandit as they attempt to ‘trick’ the Construction wall. This will be hugely influential for the attacking team as it will allow attackers to breach the reinforced wall separating Construction and Supply(B). As a result, attackers will be able to safely plant the defuser behind ‘rack’ inside of the Supply(B) bomb site as Blitz will be able to provide complete cover from Freezer.     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
