Guide for playing 'Capitao' 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.   Capitao is a 1 armour, 3 speed attacking operator. His ability is the ‘tactical crossbow’; a portable crossbow which can be used to shoot smoke or fire pellets that detonate on impact. Until the introduction of Wamai, Capitao’s bolts were not able to be countered by defenders due to Jager’s ADS not being properly equipped to eliminate glass projectiles. However, since the advent of Wamai, attackers now have to burn Wamai Discs in order to utilize Capitaos gadget. Capitao is a highly valuable attacker due to the operator being able to instantly clear defenders out of high contention areas (such as top of Yellow Stairs on Consulate). Capitao is also a great operator for a quick plant due to the operators smoke bolts detonating on impact. This significantly reduces the amount of time defenders have to react to attackers attempting to quick plant therein typically reducing the amount of plant denial used on attackers.   LOADOUT PRIMARY: PARA-308 (FLASH HIDER - OPTIC PLAYER PREFERENCE) SECONDARY: PRB92 (ATTACHMENTS PLAYER PREFERENCE) UTILITY: HARD BREACH CHARGE   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. Capitao will be used on this bomb site to eliminate the defending team's presence on the third floor portion of Yellow Stairs.   Capitao should spawn with the rest of the attacking team at Fuel Pumps and then proceed to the roof of the objective building. Capitao will then be able to position himself on the Yellow Skylight (the roof access skylight located directly on top of Yellow Stairs). From Skylight, Capitao will be able to use his Tactical Crossbow to shoot fire darts behind the support pillar of Yellow Stairs. This will force the defending teams off-site anchor to expose themselves to attackers on the Yellow Skylight as they are repositioning into Front Desk. Capitao will then maintain pressure onto the doorway connecting Yellow Stairs and Front Desk in order to isolate defenders from repositioning back onto Yellow. This will then provide an open lane for attacking teammates to establish an initial presence on Yellow Stairs which can then be used as a beachhead for a more thorough site execution later on in the round.   NOTE: Defenders can counter Capitao by having Wamai play on Yellow Stairs. If this is the case, attackers will want to be as quick as possible in eliminating the Yellow Stairs player. This is because the longer Wamai is alive, the more utility the player can add to the defending team's defensive set-up.   FUEL PUMPS 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. That being said, some map control is still required by attackers before planting the defuser. It is very common for defenders to have a presence inside of the second floor Meeting Room as, any defenders with the ability to open the flooring of 2F Meeting Room, can provide any defenders on the second floor a clear line of sight to the default plant spot inside of Lobby(B) without over exposing themselves to the outside. Capitao will be used on this bomb site to eliminate the defending teams presence inside of Anti-Chamber as well as provide smoke cover for attacking teammates as they plant the defuser inside of Lobby(B).   Capitao will spawn with the rest of the attacking team at Police Line and then proceed to the Main Entrance located on the south side of the building. The player should then maintain a position outside (usually near half wall) in order to keep pressure onto defenders inside of Press(A) and Lobby(B). It is very common for defenders to contest attackers as they approach the objective building from spawn. Capitao will help mitigate this threat by carefully picking his target windows from the outside and then slowly closing in closer to the objective building. After attackers establish good control onto the bomb site from the outside (as well as control on the second floor), Capitao will then help teammates close out the round by using his smoke darts to cover them as they plant the defuser.   NOTE: Remember, Wamai is a direct counter to Capitao. It is critically important that attackers get rid of the defending teams Wamai utility BEFORE attempting to plant the defuser. Not doing so will waste Capitaos utility and nullify the operator pick entirely.   SIDE ENTRANCE 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. Capitao will add value to the attacking team on this bomb site by eliminating the defensive presence on the second floor inside of Administrators Office.   Capitao should spawn with the attacking teams entry fragger (Ash/Zofia) and breach the objective building through the first floor Yellow Stairs doorway and second floor CEO windows. After attackers establish an initial beachhead on the second floor, Capitao will cooperate with the attacking teams dedicated entry fragger and use his drone to gather intel on the defensive set-up inside of Admin. Understanding how defenders are protecting certain parts of the map is critically important for a successful attack. Failure to gather intel at the start of the round will typically result in attackers using the route of highest resistance (or the route in which defenders are most prepared for). Capitao will first identify and then communicate the route of least resistance to the attacking teams entry fragger in order to give them the highest chance of success.   NOTE: Defenders won’t always invest heavily in the second floor due to the potential pressure being limited to just vertical angles. Instead, defending teams will typically opt to defend Tellers(A) from the basement inside of Archives(B) as this will not only keep defenders on the (B) bomb site, but will also allow them to use nitro-cell effectively as a primary form of plant denial. Attackers may want to consider a west basement take from Garage.   POLICE LINE 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. Capitao will add value to the attacking team on this bomb site by providing cover for attacking teammates as the diffuser is being planted.   Capitao will spawn with the rest of the attacking teams to support players at Fuel Pumps and proceed to the objective building. Capitao will then use his drone to gather intel on the defensive set-up on the first floor inside of the Press Room (Piano) and Main Lobby. The attacking teams entry fraggers will then act on the intel provided to them by Capitao, then allowing the teams hard breacher to open the main wall inside of Garage(B) be eliminating the Garage(B) entry denial utility through the Piano flooring.   After the main wall has been breached, Capitao will use his smoke darts to cover teammates as they establish an initial hold inside of Garage(B). Attackers will then plant the diffuser in front of Whit Van and play the post plant.   NOTE: Capitao can use his fire bolts to buy attackers time during the post-plant by shooting the fire bolt directly on top of the defuser. This will force defenders to have to wait until the fire clears from the proximity of the defuser in order to attempt a disable.   RIOT BARRICADE SPAWN LOCATION:

    Do you guys think capitao might be a good pick for an inexperienced player of rainbow six? I mean i wanna buy a attacker and capitao actually caught my attention. I am a bit experienced with this game,not verry good at it tho,but still is it worth investing time in him?

  • CrypticKai LV.20 Let’s play R6! Sep 18, 2020, 05:44 AM

    100% He’s an underrated operator and is extremely good especially if they don’t have Wamao and are sitting behind desks and stuff.

    He’s banned pretty often in proleague because of his utility and stuff. By playing capitao, you’ll learn on when and where to put your utility.

    A small trick, is to shoot a single bullet into a soft wall/floor. Stand still and switch to the crossbow, and shoot through the bullet hole. Quite an unused trick, and it can get the drop on people.

    nice!

  • Z3R0 / KLEAPHA LV.2 Lurker Sep 22, 2020, 08:19 PM

    I've always liked Capitao as an operator, but his guns never really stuck out to me. His gadget is really good, being able to make 1 way smokes while also protecting disuser and denying flanks for a short amount of time if needed. Thank you for the guide
