Guide for playing 'Glaz' 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.   ‘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] 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. Glaz will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by maintaining pressure onto defenders inside of Bathroom after the reinforced wall separating Mechanical Bull and Games(B) has been breached.   Glaz will spawn with the attacking teams support players at Fuel Pumps and then work his way up to the second floor Electrical window. This will then position the player in a central location from which they can drone the second floor for any roamers inside of Office, Garage, or Mechanical Bull. Due to Glaz not being very well suited for CQB room clearing, the player will have to add value by instead gathering intel for the attacking teams entry-fraggers.   After attackers establish themselves inside of Mechanical Bull and Shark Stairs, the attacking team's hard breacher will then open the wall separating Mechanical Bull and Games(B). After doing so, Glaz will then deploy smoke grenades inside of the rotation hole connecting Bathroom and Games(B) as well as on the high angles made by defenders on the wall connecting Piano to Games(B). This will then provide cover for the attacking teams designated planter as they attempt to stick the defuser inside of Games(A).   NOTE: When deploying smoke grenades, Glaz will want to make sure to throw the grenades on top of defender positions so as to blind defenders when they play from that particular firing position. Do not deploy the smoke grenade directly on top of where teammates will be planting the defuser. Otherwise, you will just be telling defenders where they need to shoot instead of blinding the defenders attempting to shoot from that position.   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. Glaz will provide value on this bomb site by maintaining pressure onto defenders inside of Mechanical Bull from outside of the objective building, through the Mechanical Bull balcony window.   Glaz should spawn at Camping and then work his way up the Dorms Balcony so as to position himself outside of the Mechanical Bull window. From here, Glaz will then be able to maintain pressure onto Mechanical Bull for the duration of the round while additional attacking teammates apply pressure onto defenders from Games and Piano.   As attackers clear the western portion of the second floor, defenders will attempt to return to the bomb site through Mechanical Bull. Glaz will be able to prevent them from repositioning into Party(A) or Office(B) as they will need to expose themselves to Glaz in order to return to the bomb site.   NOTE: Glaz should be cautious of defenders attempting to runout on him from either the Bathroom or Dorms window. If attacking teammates do not thoroughly roam clear the western portion of the second floor (inside of Dorms, Laundry, and Bathroom) Glaz will need to be cautious of flanking defenders as this is the most common way defenders counter Mechanical Bull pressure.   CAMPING 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. Glaz will provide value on this bomb site by maintaining pressure onto defenders playing inside of Nature Hallway while also protecting the Piano and Back stairs flank for second floor attackers.   Glaz will spawn at Camping and then breach the objective building through Reception. From Reception, Glaz will clear all defenders playing inside of the Nature Hallway so as to isolate all defenders back into the Nature(A) Bushranger(B) bomb sites. This will then allow Glaz to position himself inside of Nature Hallway and effectively maintain pressure onto defenders inside of the bomb site. Additionally, this will also keep Glaz in a central location to enable him to protect the flanks of second floor attackers as they roam clear Dorms, Laundry, Piano, and Bathroom.   NOTE: Glaz will want to be aware of the two primary routes in which he can be flanked: Reception and Restaurant. It is recommended that attackers bring an operator like Nomad to help prevent this from happening.   STORAGE 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). Glaz will be used on this bomb site to protect the flank of attackers inside of Kitchen while also protecting the Shark Stairs flank for attackers on the second floor.   Glaz should spawn at Storage and then breach the objective building through the first floor Main Entrance. From Main Entrance, Glaz will then communicate with additional first floor attackers to effectively roam clear defenders playing inside of Kitchen and Restaurant. This will then allow Glaz to move into the restaurant and take up a position on the Shark Stairs mid-landing. This will position the player to maintain pressure all the way across Restaurant and eliminate defenders attempting to flank up the Shark Stairs or flank attacking teammates inside of Kitchen through the corridor connecting Gear(B) to Restaurant.   NOTE: Glaz will be flank protection for the duration of this bomb site. That means the player will not be seeing a lot of action throughout the round. However, it is important that the player does not get restless and try to solo push the Gear(B) bomb site. Glaz’s positioning will be critically important for the attacking team - even though it may not be directly apparent.   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
