Guide for playing 'Blitz' on 'Villa'.

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.]

Villa is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map gives a slight advantage to the defending team due to there being few routes into the primary bomb sites forcing attackers to bottle neck. In addition to this, Villa is a very large map which makes roam control very difficult for the attacking team.   ‘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.   PRIMARY: N/A SECONDARY: P-2 HANDGUN (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: Smoke Grenades x 3   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIONS:

  ATTACKING: [2F] AVIATOR(A) - GAMES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the outdoor Study Balcony located on the second floor of the south side of the building. After establishing control over Study and the top of Main Stairs, attackers will proceed to breach the reinforced wall separating Study and Games(B) (being the westward facing reinforced wall inside of Study). This will allow the attacking team to plant the defuser inside of Games(B) behind the bar; providing attackers with a safe place to plant the defuser. Blitz will be used on this bomb site to establish the attacking teams initial map control on the first floor, inside of Art Storage and Piano. This will be important for the attacking teams entry-denial countering operator (Buck, IQ, Zofia, or Ash) as they will need to be able to safely operate inside of these first floor rooms in order to eliminate the defending teams utility.   After establishing the attacking teams presence on the first floor, Blitz will then reposition to the top of Main Stairs. This will then position Blitz to protect the flank of attacking teammates on the second inside of Study as they attempt to breach the reinforced wall separating Study and Games(B). Additionally, Blitz will be able to apply secondary pressure onto ‘90’ and Games(B) from Long Hallway while attacking teammates apply the primary pressure onto Games(B) through the breach made inside of Study.   RUINS SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [2F] TROPHY(A) - STATUARY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building from the north eastern roof access points leading into the second floor Bathroom and Master Bedroom. After establishing control over Master Bed and Bath, attackers will proceed to breach the reinforced wall separating Master Bedroom from Statuary(B) as this will expose both Statuary(B) and Trophy(A) as well as providing attackers with a more open route into Statuary(B) to plant the defuser. Blitz will be used as the attacking teams active entry fragger for the duration of this bomb site. To do this, the player should spawn at the Ruins spawn location and then proceed to breach the objective building through the second floor Study Balcony. After establishing the attacking teams initial map control inside of Study, Blitz will then begin a thorough roam clear of the second floor through Study, Aviator, Games, 90, and Vault. This map control will then isolate all defenders either back into the bomb site or down onto the first floor. This will be valuable for attackers as defenders will only be able to flank attackers through two funnel routes: Red Stairs and Main Stairs.   Blitz will then take up a position inside of the Statue Connector doorway so as to gather intel on the positioning and set up of defenders playing inside of Statuary(B). This positioning will also allow Blitz to eliminate the defending team's entry-denial placed on the reinforced wall separating Master Bedroom and Statuary(B). After doing so, attackers positioned inside of Master Bedroom will breach the site wall and attempt to plant the defuser. Blitz can assist attackers during the final site execution by applying further pressure onto defenders inside of Astronomy and Trophy(A) so as to create a type of buffer zone between the defuser and remaining defenders.   PARKING SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] LIBRARY(A) - LIVING ROOM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers breaching the objective building through Art Storage and Main Lobby. After establishing control over Main Lobby and Red Hallway, attackers will apply pressure on the Library(A)-Lobby doorway and breach the reinforced wall separating Library(A) and Red Hall. Blitz will assist attacking teammates in clearing the first floor Main Lobby and Piano of roaming defenders. To do this, Blitz should breac the first floor through Art Storage and communicate with teammates as you thoroughly clear Art Storage, Piano, Red Hallway, and Main Lobby of all defensive presence. This map control will then allow the attacking team's hard breacher to open the reinforced wall separating 1F Red Hallway and Library(A).   While attackers are opening the site wall, Blitz should reposition to the Mud Room so as to apply secondary attacker pressure onto the Living Room(B) bomb site. In some cases, Blitz may be able to clear the entirety of the Living Room(B) of defenders independently. This will then provide the player with an opportunity to apply further pressure onto the Library(A) bomb site while teammates apply primary pressure onto Library(A) from Red Hallway and Main Lobby.   FOUNTAIN SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] DINING(A) - KITCHEN(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the Basement and first floor Laundry. The primary force of attackers will be focused on the reinforced wall separating Laundry room and Dining as well as control over the second floor for vertical control. Having control over the top of Pantry Stairs will limit defenders ability to rotate throughout the two bomb sites as the Pantry Doorway provides anybody inside of Pantry with a clear line of sight through Kitchen(B). Blitz will assist attacking soft-destructors eliminate all defenders playing on the second floor inside of Master Bedroom, Statuary, Bathroom, and Astronomy. This map control will be important for attackers to have as it will allow the attacking team to apply absolute vertical pressure onto both Dining(A) and Kitchen(B).   After eliminating all off-site defenders, Blitz will then reposition to the bottom of Astronomy Stairs so as to apply horizontal pressure onto the Kitchen(A) doorway connecting Mudroom Hallway and Kitchen(A). This will assist attackers applying the primary pressure onto Dining(A) as defenders will be forced to worry about three different directions of attack: Laundry, Kitchen(A) doorway, and second floor Statuary vertical.     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
