Guide for playing 'Capitao' on 'Border'.

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.]

Border is a double-level map (consisting of two floors) found both in ranked play as well as professional. The current architecture of the map is generally balanced, although a slight edge may be given to attackers as the map is highly destructible.   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] ARMORY(A) - ARCHIVES(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attackers gaining control over CCTV and Break room located on the north side of the second floor. After establishing control over CCTV-Break room, attackers will then proceed to breach the reinforced wall of the outside balcony leading into the Armory(A) bomb site. Attackers will then plant the defuser in or around the breach hole. Capitao will provide value to the attacking team on this bomb site by eliminating defenders playing behind ‘half-wall’ after the main Armory(A) wall has been breached.   Capitao should spawn at West Vehicle entrance and then work his way up to the second floor West Balcony. From here, Capitao will use his drone to gather intel on the defensive set-up inside of CCTV and Break Room. Defenders will commonly position one or more defenders across the West Balcony inside of CCTV as a means of wasting attacker time and, in some cases, preventing the attacker West Balcony pushes altogether. Capitao will help prevent defenders from doing this by communicating the exact amount of defenders inside of CCTV/Break as well as their positioning to the attacking teams entry-fragger. This will benefit the attacking team greatly in that the entry fragger(s) will have a larger amount of intel with which they can work with when attempting to eliminate off-site anchors inside of CCTV and Break Room.   After defenders have been isolated back into the bomb sites, attackers will breach the reinforced wall separating Armory(A) and West Balcony. This will provide attackers with a clear route directly into Armory(A) with which they can use to plant.   NOTE: Capitao will be the optimal operator pick for eliminating defenders playing inside of Armory(A), behind ‘half-wall’ (the mini wall located alongside the back wall of Armory(A)). Capitao should use his fire bolts to eliminate these defenders so as to allow attackers a safe pathway to plant inside of default.   VALLEY SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] BATHROOM(A) - TELLERS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced wall separating Tellers(B) from the outside - located on the north eastern wall of the first floor. Attackers will also typically need control of the second floor ‘Offices’ as it is very common for defenders to defend Bathroom(A)-Tellers(B) vertically from the second floor. Capitao can be used on either the first or second floor of the objective building background supporting operator. For the purposes of this particular guide, I will cover the operators primary use case when played on the first floor, outside of the Tellers(B) main wall.   Capitao should spawn at East Vehicle Entrance with the rest of the attacking team so as to then position himself with the attacking teams Hard Breacher (Thermite, Hibanna, Ace, Maverick) outside of the reinforced wall separating Tellers(B) from the outside. From here, Capitao will spend a large portion of the round using his drone to gather intel on the defensive set-up throughout the second floor. This is because Capitao and Thermite will not be able to make any progress on the Tellers(B) bomb site until second floor Office control is established by the attacking team. Capitao will help expedite this process by supporting the attacking teams second floor entry fraggers with up-to-date intel with which they can take strategic action.   Capitao should focus his droning inside of 2F Archives and Armory and allow the secondary entry fragger do the primary droning inside of Office and Fountain. This will allow Capitao to not have his attention completely focused on one area of the map, but instead focus attention evenly through the whole of the second floor flank routes.   NOTE: When in a supporting role, Capitao will be flipping through the available static cameras placed by attackers so as to ensure the protection of second floor teammates flanks. After droning CCTV and Break Room for defenders, Capitao will want to focus on Metal and East stairs as these will be the only remaining flank routes available for defenders to maneuver through.   EAST VEHICLE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] SUPPLY(A) - CUSTOMS(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the south-western reinforced wall leading from the outside into Detention. Attackers will also commonly attempt to gain control over the second floor CCTV and Break Room as these positions will provide great vertical control over the two first floor bomb sites. Capitao will be used similarly to the way in which the operator was used on the previously mentioned Tellers-Bathroom bomb site in that the player will be used initially as a background supporting operator and then later as a direct supporting operator.   Capitao should spawn at either Valley or West Vehicle so as to then position himself outside of the Supply(A) single window. From here, Capitao will be able to maintain pressure onto the Supply(A) bomb site and site rotation from outside of the objective building. Additionally, Capitao will also be able to use his fire bolts to eliminate defenders inside of Detention or the Supply-Detention connector room (both of which are common defensive positions due to the protection from vertical pressure).   Capitao will maintain his central positioning outside of Supply(A) in order to allow himself to act on openings as the defending team loosens up their hold on Supply(A) while attacking teammates apply vertical pressure from the second floor inside of CCTV and Break Room. Capitao will spend a large portion of the round staying on his drone and gathering intel on the defensive positions inside of Supply(A) and Customs(B). Knowing the positions of the remaining defenders will be very valuable information for attackers during a sirte push as attackers will know exactly what flanks they will be most vulnerable to when pushing into the bomb site.   NOTE: Capitao will want to be careful when applying pressure onto the Supply(A) single window. Defenders will occasionally flank the outside Supply(A) window position by running out of the first floor Ventilation window. Attackers can partially prevent this with a claymore, however, it is recommended to bring Nomad in order to fully eliminate this flank.   WEST VEHICCLE SPAWN LOCATION:

  ATTACKING: [1F] WORKSHOP(A) - VENT(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attackers establishing full control of the second floor Armory-Archives rooms located directly above the Workshop(A)-Vent(B) bomb sites. After gaining control of the second floor, attackers will breach the reinforced hatches located inside of Armory and Archives in addition to destroying the flooring of the second floor as this will allow attackers full vertical control of the two ground floor bomb sites. Capitao will be used very similarly to the way in which the operator was used on the primary second floor objective inside of Archives-Armory by eliminating the defensive presence by ‘half-wall’ and ‘africa’   Capitao will spawn with the rest of the attacking team at West Vehicle Entrance and then proceed to rappel up to the second floor West Balcony. From here, attackers will execute the strategy identical to the Archives-Armory assault used on the first bomb site by breaching the Armory wall and the fire bolting half wall. Defenders will almost always be protecting the first floor Ventilation(B) vertically from the second floor Armory. Attackers will first need to eliminate the vertical defensive pressure, and then rotate back to the first floor to execute the proper site push.   After Capitao assists attackers in clearing defenders from Armory and Archives, Capitao should be one of the first operators to rotate back to the first floor, outside of the Front Door and Vent(B) single window. Capitao will be acting as the attacking teams initial horizontal pressure onto the Vent(B) bomb site while additional second floor soft destructors carry out further vertical pressure onto defenders inside of Workshop(A).   Capitao will want to keep a very close eye on the defensive status of Vent(B) as it is very common for defenders to overlook this bomb site by giving it up as soon as defenders acquire second floor control. Capitao should be one of the first operators to act on the site opening as soon as the opportunity presents itself to the player.     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
