Guide for playing 'Glaz' on 'Consulate'.

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.]

Consulate 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 significant advantage to the attacking team due to the high amount of exposure each bomb site is vulnerable to from the outside.   ‘Glaz’ is a 2 armour, 1 speed attacker. The operators’ primary value comes from a culmination of both the operators long-range shooting abilities as well as Glaz’s HDS flipsight (a thermal optic which can be used to detect enemy players through bullet holes and smoke). Glaz will typically provide the largest amount of value to an attacking team by maintaining a position outside of the objective building. This is because the operator's HDS optic can only detect body heat while Glaz is stationary, which can be difficult to accomplish when in a CQC environment. New players should also note that Kali will typically be a higher value operator pick than Glaz with the current meta. This is because Kali is able to accomplish the same long range responsibilities as Glaz while also being able to act as the attacking teams counter to entry denial in the case of a Thatcher ban. Attackers should keep this in mind when choosing the best long range operator for the map so as to maximize operator potential.   LOADOUT PRIMARY: OTS-03 (Attachments to player preference.) SECONDARY: PMM (Attachments to player preference.) UTILITY: Frag Grenades *This can vary depending on the map and bomb site.*   ATTACKER SPAWN LOCATIONS:

ATTACKING: [2F] MEETING(A) - OFFICE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team rappelling on the second floor windows of Office(B), Meeting(A), Conector, and Bathroom. The attackers have a huge advantage on this bomb site due to the amount of control which can be had by just rappelling on the windows, attackers can cut off any and all rotates between Office(A), Meeting(B), Long Desk, and Yellow Stairs without even coming inside the building. Due to the amount of control which can be had from the outside, attackers can dedicate the majority of their personnel and resources safely from the outside while only having a few attackers actually enter the building. Glaz will be used on this bomb site to cover attacking teammates as they plant the defuser inside of Office(B). To do this, Glaz will spawn with the majority of the attacking team at Gas Station and then proceed to rappel onto the western wall of the objective building. This will position Glaz on the two second floor windows looking directly into the Office(B) bomb site which will provide the operator with good positioning to eliminate defenders playing inside of Office(B), Front Desk, Connector, and Bathroom. Glaz will then maintain positioning on the two Office(B) windows and use smoke grenades to cover attackers after they breach into the bomb site and plant the defuser. Remember that Glaz will be able to see through smoke grenades as long as the operator stays still; making Glaz the ideal operator to cover attackers as they plant the defuser inside areas of high contention.   NOTE: Attackers rappeled on the Office(B) windows should always be highly aware of defenders attempting to run out through Yellow Stairs, Garage Door, or Piano window. This will be the defending teams primary way of countering attackers that are applying Office(B) pressure from the western windows. To counter this, Attackers will want to bring a Nomad and place air-jabs on the previously mentioned runout locations.   SIDE ENTRANCE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] PRESS(A) - LOBBY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team attempting to plant the defuser inside of the outside double door leading into Lobby(B) from the south of the bomb site. This is the most common strategy due to the safe and direct route to the bomb site the attacking team is given in addition to the attackers not needing too much map control in order to successfully plant the defuser. Glaz will be used similarly to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned Office-Meeting bomb sites by covering in-building attackers as they attempt to plant the defuser. The primary difference on this bomb site will be player positioning. Instead of rappelling into the second floor Office windows, Glaz will be positioned outside of the Main Lobby double door. In many cases, Glaz will not need to actually breach the objective building or even reposition that far away from the Police Line. Instead, Glaz will maintain positioning near the Front Gate and Half Walls located on the southside of the objective building so as to eliminate defenders inside of Lobby(B) and cut off defenders' rotations through Antichamber. This will effectively isolate the B bomb site and allow additional attacking entry fraggers to plant the defuser inside of the Lobby(B) doorway.   NOTE: Attackers attempting to establish map control on the first floor inside of Lobby(B) will need to first gather intel on the second floor Projector room and Connector. This is because defenders will typically invest a large amount of resources to the defensive of the second floor as this map control can be used to protect Lobby(B) vertically. Failure to clear the second floor of defenders will leave on-site attackers inside of Lobby(B) vulnerable to vertical pressure that cannot be covered by Glaz from the outside.   POLICE LINE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F/BSMNT] TELLERS(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering the building through the first floor Visa Entrance on the eastern side of the building and proceeding to gain control of Visa Office. Before gaining control over Visa Office, the attacker must first deduce whether or not the defenders are playing inside of the second floor Administrators Office as this will be the defending teams primary method for defending Tellers(A) due to their ability to open the flooring of Administrator's Office and use the vertical angles against the attackers approach from either Visa Entrance or Spiral Hallway. Glaz will provide value to teammates while the second floor roam clear is being carried out by establishing the attacking teams initial first floor map control inside of Visa. To do this, Glaz will not actually breach the objective building but, will instead, maintain pressure onto Visa through the northern Visa single window. This will provide value to attackers as a whole as teammates executing a second floor roam clear will inevitably force defenders back down the Visa Stairs; allowing Glaz then to capitalize on defenders attempting to return to the bomb. Glaz can also be used to protect the Visa Stairs flank for teammates positioned on the first and second floor while they attempt to plant the defuser.   NOTE: Attackers inside of Tellers(A) will still need to be cautious of defenders positioned inside of Archives(B) as they will attempt to use nitro-cell to prevent attackers planting the defuser inside of Tellers(A). Attackers will need to keep in mind that Glaz is NOT capable of covering teammates from this kind of plant denial.   GAS STATION SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [BSMNT] CAFETERIA(A) - GARAGE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall located on the west of the Garage(B) and planting the defuser in front of ‘White Van’. However, before breaching the reinforced wall, the attackers will need to gain control over the first floor Press Room and Lobby as these two rooms are located directly above the basement bombsites. Glaz will be used on this bomb site to provide cover for additional teammates as they attempt to plant the defuser inside of Garage(B) after the site wall has been breached. Glaz will need to communicate with teammates while the player drones the objective so as to determine defenders positions inside of Garage(B). This will then give attackers a general idea of what to expect in regards to defender set-up inside of Garage(B) after the site wall has been opened.   After the site wall has been breached, Glaz will then be responsible for clearing defenders positioned near Yellow Stairs, Pipes, and Pillar. This will provide the attacking teams designated planter with a clear and safe route to plant the diffuser in front of ‘White Van’.   NOTE: Attackers planting the defuser inside of Garage(B) will need to be cautious of Maestro Evil Eyes placed on both sides of the White Van. This will be the defending team's primary method of eliminating attackers as they attempt to plant the defuser inside of Garage(B).   RIOT BARRICADE SPAWN LOCATION:
