Guide for playing 'Capitao' on 'Kanal'.

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.]

Kanal is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) currently only found in ranked play though that may be subject to change as the developers could add the map to the pro-league map roster after observing how the map plays now. The current architecture of the map is fairly balanced, advantages will change based on which site is being played and how the ban phase plays out at the beginning of the match.   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] SERVER(A) - RADAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall on the south side of ‘Renovations’ as this will provide the attackers with clear lines of sight directly into Radar(B) in addition to direct access to the bomb site to plant the defuser. Capitao will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by providing cover for the teams designated planter inside of Radar(B).   Capitao will spawn with the rest of the attacking teams support players at Construction and then proceed to the roof of the primary Objective building (sometimes called Red). From here, attackers will then breach the reinforced wall separating Renovations from the outside. Until the wall is opened, Capitao should focus on maintaining flank watch while attackers are still outside on the roof. This is because it is very common for defenders to run-out on attackers while they are eliminating the entry-denial utility placed on the main wall due to attackers being highly exposed. Capitao should focus on the White Stairs run-out (located on the roof of the adjacent building) as this will be one of the most common run-outs.   After the wall is opened, capitao should then reposition over to the Renovations breach and use his smokebolts on the double doorway connecting Radar(B) to SkyBridge and on the rotation hole connecting Radar(B) to Server(A). This will then cut off all defenders' routes back into Radar(B) while attackers plant the defuser behind ‘console’ inside of the (B) bomb site.   CONSTRUCTION SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] COAST GUARD(A) - LOUNGE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team gaining control of ‘Scuba’ and ‘Printer’ stairs, as well as the hallway-landing which separates the two. After establishing control of the northern stairwells, attackers will want to breach the reinforced wall between the lower-printer-stairs-landing and Lounge(B). This will completely expose the Lounge(B) bomb site as well as position attackers to plant the defuser in a variety of different safe plant spots inside of the B bombsite. Capitao will be used on this bomb site to eliminate the defending teams entry-denial utility placed on the wall separating Scuba Stairs and Lounge(B).   Capitao will spawn at Floating Docks and then proceed to rappel onto the second floor window of Lounge(B). From here, Capitao will be able to eliminate the defending teams entry-denial utility permanently as well as use his firebolts to prevent defenders from being able to ‘trick’ the Lounge(B) wall. This will then allow the attacking team's hard breacher to open the Lounge(B) wall. Capitao will be able to support attackers further by eliminating defenders as they attempt to reposition out of Lounge(B) in addition to being able to use his smokebolts to cover attackers as they plant inside of Lounge(B).   NOTE: Capitao will want to be very careful on the second floor Lounge(B) rappel as the player will be very vulnerable to defenders flanking you from SkyBridge or any of the windows on the primary objective building. There is no good way to contest against this other than attackers successfully isolating all defenders back into the two bomb sites.   FLOATING DOCKS SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [BSMNT] KAYAKS(A) - SUPPLY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers gaining control of the first floor inside of Coast Guard and Lounge as the hatches located on the floors of these two rooms offer great lines of site and access points to the basement. It is very common for defenders to be playing inside of Bathroom and Lockers, located directly across the hall from the bomb sites in the basement. Capitao can be used on this bomb site to assist attackers in establishing control inside of Lockers and inside of Diving.   Capitao should spawn at Floating Docks and then proceed to the outside lower crates in order to maintain positioning on the Diving double window and Lockers single window. Capitao will then be able to use his fire bolt to eliminate defenders playing behind the main locker inside of Lockers as they will be forced to either reposition into Main Hallway or Showers; giving attackers an opportunity to take Lockers control. From here attackers will be able to pincer the remaining off-site anchors inside of Showers as additional teammates positioned inside of Trench can push these defenders opposite of you in order to cut off all disengagement routes. This will then give attackers full control of Showers, Lockers, Long Hallway, and Bottom Main Stairs.   Defenders will then only have Diving Room and Scuba Stairs as a route which can be used to return to the bomb site. Capitao will then shift his positioning to the outside of Diving window in order to pincer any remaining defenders inside of Diving with the help of additional teammates positioned inside of Lockers, Long Hallway, and Scuba Stairs.   SAILBOATS SPAWN LOCATION:

ATTACKING: [1F] SECURITY(A) - MAP(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team establishing control over the second floor Server and Radar rooms located directly above the bomb site. The ceiling of Security(A)-Map(B) is destructible, making it advantageous for attackers to first focus on control of the second floor. Capitao will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by assisting teammates in establishing control inside of Kitchen.   The operator should spawn with the rest of the attacking teams to support players at Construction and then position himself on the second floor Kitchen single window rappel. This will then allow the player to eliminate any defenders playing inside of Kitchen from the outside. Capitao will be ideal for this job as the player is capable of eliminating defenders positioned inside of the many nooks located in Kitchen (most notable of which being the variety of half walls there are in Kitchen). Capitao will clear Kitchen of all defensive presence for in-building attackers to then capitalize on. Capitao should then remain on this window rappel for the remainder of the round as he will be able to prevent defenders from being able to flank attackers through Kitchen from Waiting Hall.   NOTE: Although there is no good way for defenders to run out on Capitao while he is on this window rappel, defenders will occasionally jump out of the second floor Kitchen window in order to secure the map control. Although jumping out of the Kitchen window seems like a poor decision, the Kitchen window rappel is actually incredibly valuable positioning and, in some cases, is worth trading a player for. Capitao should stay on an inverted-rappel in order to play the rappel in the safest way possible.   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
