Guide for playing 'Blitz' on 'Outback'.

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.]

Outback is a double-level map (consisting of two floors) found only in ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the defenders due to there being limited second floor access points. Although, an argument could be made for this being mitigated by the vertical advantages given to the attackers on the ground floor bomb sites.   ‘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] LAUNDRY(A) - GAMES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the top of Garage and the Shark Stairs second floor window. After establishing control over all second floor rooms east of Games(B), the attacking team will proceed to breach the reinforced wall between Mechanical Bull (Bull) and Games(B) as this will provide attackers with a direct route to plant the defuser inside of the Games(B) bomb site. Blitz will be used on this bomb site to assist attackers in eliminating all off-site defenders positioned on the eastern portion of the second floor inside of Bull, Party, Office, Shark, and Garage. To do this, Blitz should breach the objective building through the first floor Main Entrance and communicate with supporting teammates as they drone the second floor. Blitz will want to be proactive in the roam clear so that the player is actively contesting defenders as their positions are revealed by teammates as they drone.   NOTE: Before clearing the second floor, attackers may want to initially clear the first floor. This is because defenders like Pulse and Valkyrie may be positioned off-site inside of Kitchen. This map control allows defenders to nitro-cell attackers on the second floor inside of Mechanical Bull as they are breaching the reinforced wall separating Games(B) and Bull.   FUEL PUMPS SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] PARTY(A) - OFFICE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team essentially executing the inverse attack plan used on the previous bomb site; the only difference here being over which rooms attackers need to establish control over. To ensure protection from any possible flanks, attackers should clear all second floor rooms west of Mechanical Bull and Shark Stairs and place some type of flank protection on Shark and Yellow Stairs - this is commonly taken care of by bringing a Nomad or Gridlock. Blitz should be used on this bomb site similar to the way in which the operator was used as an entry fragger on the previously mentioned Games-Laundry bomb site. The difference here will be in entry point and map control. Blitz should breach the objective building through the second floor Piano Balcony so as to establish the attacking teams initial map control inside of Piano. From here, Blitz will proceed to eliminate all defenders playing on the western portion of the second floor inside of Dorms, piano, Laundry, Long Hallway, and Games. This will then allow attacking teammates like Thermite and Thatcher to breach the wall separating Mechanical Bull and Games.   While attacking hard breachers apply pressure onto Mechanical Bull by breaching the reinforced wall, Blitz will want to reposition to the top of Shark Stairs so as to apply secondary pressure onto Mechanical Bull from Shark. This will then force defenders back into the Party(A) and Office(B) bomb sites, allowing attacking hard breachers to take up positions inside of Mechanical Bull and breach the Party(A) reinforced wall.   STORAGE SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] NATURE(A) - BUSHRANGER(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the first floor Yellow Stair doorway located on the west of the building near the ‘Camping’ spawn location. After establishing control over the Nature Hallway and top of Yellow Stairs, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Nature Hallway and BushRanger room. Attackers will commonly send a few soft destructors like Buck, Sledge, or Zofia to the second floor to destroy the flooring of of Laundry and the adjacent hallways. This will expose defending anchors inside of Bushranger(B) and Nature(A) to vertical angles. Blitz will be used on this bomb site to assist attackers in establishing control over the second floor inside of Piano, Laundry, Dorms, and Bathroom. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through the Piano-Shark Balcony so as to establish the attacking teams initial map control inside of Piao. From here, Blitz will then communicate with second floor teammates as they drone for defending roamers. Blitz will be responsible for acting on the intel gathered by supporting teammates so as to effectively eliminate the second floor defensive presence. This will then the attacking teams soft-destructors with the necessary map control needed to breach the ceiling of the bomb site and apply vertical pressure onto Bushranger(B) and Nature(A).   CAMPING SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] COMPRESSOR(A) - GEAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the top of the 2F Garage (accessed through the west and east single windows) and through the 1F Main Entrance (accessed through the mud room double-doorways on the east of the building). After establishing the necessary control over Restaurant and Kitchen, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Kitchen and Compressor(A). Blitz will be used on this bomb site to establish the attacking teams control inside of Garage. To do this, Blitz will breach the objective building through Reception and eliminate all defenders playing inside of Reception as well as ‘lockers’ of the first floor Garage. This will become hugely influential map control for the attacking team after attacking hard breachers open the reinforced wall separating Kitchen and Compressor(A) as defenders will be forced to reposition further back into Gear(B) - forfeiting control of Compressor(A) over to the attacking team. Blitz can then add additional value with the operators ability to maintain the attacking teams pressure onto Gear(B) by further contesting remaining defenders inside of Gear(B) while the attacking teams dedicated planter is sticking the defuser.       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
