Guide for playing 'Glaz' 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.   ‘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] 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. Glaz will be used on this bomb site to assist attackers in establishing full control over Attic and Big Tower.   Glaz should spawn with the bulk of the attacking team at Construction and then work his way up to the T1 Big Tower doorway. From here, Glaz will then breach the objective building through either T1 or T2 so as to establish the team's initial map control inside of Big Tower. This will be important for attacking teammates positioned on T3 as they will be attempting to push out defenders playing inside of Big Tower - Glaz will be able to eliminate these defenders as they attempt to retreat back to the bomb site through Big Tower Stairs and Kitchen Hallway.   After establishing full control over Big Tower, the attacking team's hard breacher (Thermite, Ace, Hibanna, or Maverick) will breach the reinforced wall separating T2 and Attic. This will then provide attackers with a direct route into Attic, through which the player can use smoke grenades to quickly gain map control over defenders inside of Attic. This will then allow attackers to apply further pressure onto defenders inside of Kids(A) by using the attack route inside of Attic as well as the second floor Kids(A) window available to attackers on the north western side of the building.   JUNKYARD 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. Glaz will be used on this bomb site to provide cover to attacking teammates inside of Small Tower as they attempt to plant the defuser inside of Dining(B).   Glaz should spawn with the attacking teams support player at Junkyard and then proceed to breach the objective building through the second and first floor portions of Small Tower. Attackers will then need to diligently clear the Small Tower of all defensive presence before attempting to breach the reinforced wall separating Small Tower and Dining(A). After defenders have been either eliminated or flushed back out of the western portion of the building, the attacking team's hard breacher will then open the reinforced wall separating Dining(B) and Small Tower. This will then allow Glaz to deploy smoke grenades inside of Dining(B) so as to provide cover for the attacking teams designated planter as they attempt to stick the defuser. Additionally, Glaz’s flip-up thermal optic will allow the player to prevent defenders from contesting the plant as long as the smoke is up. This is because the operator's thermal optic is capable of detecting enemies as they approach you through deployed smoke, offering a significant advantage for attackers as they attempt to disarm the bomb.   NOTE: Although Glaz’s thermal sight is capable of detecting defending players as they maneuver through smoke, the optic is not able to see nitro-cell as easily. Attackers will still need to be cautious of defenders using more traditional means of denying a plant, like that of Evil-Eye’s, Yokai Drones, or Smoke’s Toxic Babes.   PARKING 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. Glaz will be used similar to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned Kitchen-Dining bomb site by providing cover for attacking teammates as the plant the defuser inside of Meeting(A).   Glaz should spawn at Construction with the majority of the attacking team and then breach both the top and bottom portions of Big Tower. This will then isolate defenders playing inside of T2 from the rest of the defending team. Attackers will then send their dedicated entry fragger (typically Ash or Zofia) to apply direct pressure onto these defenders. This will then force the isolated defending player to take unfavourable gunfights inside of T2 or flee Big Tower entirely. In either case, attackers are almost guaranteed a man advantage so long as Glaz maintains positioning on T1 to cut the defenders' rotation back into the Meeting(A) bomb site.   After eliminating the defensive presence inside of Big Tower, attackers will then set up flank protection on the bottom portion of Big Tower stairs and Kitchen hallway. This will allow attackers to operate in Big Tower without needing to worry too much about defenders flanking from Kitchen(B) or Basement. The attacking team's hard breacher will then open the reinforced wall separating Big Tower and Meeting(A). After doing so, Glaz will then operate exactly as the player did on the previous bomb site by deploying smoke grenades for teammates as they communicate that they are ready to plant the defuser inside of Meeting(A).   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). Glaz will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by eliminating defenders playing inside of Barrels and Tarps at the beginning of the round.   Glaz should spawn with the bulk of the attacking teams supporting players at Construction and then carry on through Construction and into Tarps. Attackers will almost invariably need to first eliminate defenders playing inside of Tarps. This is because it has become increasingly popular for defending teams to extend their defense outward into Tarps from Laundry(A). If this is the case, attackers will need to first eliminate the defending team's anti-projectile utility (Jager ADS or Wamai Disc’s) placed inside of Tarps and Barrels. Generally speaking, the more quickly attackers can do this, the less utility that will have to be wasted in order to eliminate the defending teams set up inside of Tarps.   Although a Tarps-extension set up can be difficult to deal with sometimes, there is an added advantage for attackers. After Tarps control is gained, attackers have a clear route into Laundry(A) from Tarps - no hard breacher required. The attacking team's hard breacher will then be able to reposition to the first floor inside of Main Lobby and Meeting Hall in order to breach the reinforced hatches on the ceiling of the bomb site. This will then pressure defenders from a variety of flanks, forcing them to over expose themselves in order to contest all directions of attack sufficiently.     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
