There are a lot of A-site Haven callouts but don't worry because with practice alongside the best Phantom skins, you'll start to remember them. From all these Haven A-site callouts, you should mainly remember that on every map upper and lower areas are called Heaven and Hell.

How to Attack A-Site on Haven

For attacking A-site on Haven, firstly place a Sentinel agent trap before the round starts right at the barrier. This will help you watch out for flanks and lurkers. Then, send three players down A-Long and two players down A-Sewer. Clear out these areas of potential enemies with simple abilities.

Once you take control of these areas, use Controller smokes on places like Heaven and CT as the enemies mostly come from there. Don't be afraid to use detecting and flash abilities to clear out the site fully, you can expect the enemies on Cubby, behind A-Box, or even in Hell.

Try to plant the spike on Default where it can be seen from A-Long. Once you plant it, you could either defend it from A-Long, Sewer Path or stay on-site and watch CT and Heaven for potential enemies. Stall for time, use molly lineups, and win the round with the Vandal or Phantom!

How to Defend A-Site on Haven

Defending A-site on Haven isn't anything hard. You would ideally use smokes to cover Sewer Path and A-Main which will significantly make the enemies' entry harder. Even if you don't have a Controller agent for smokes, use flash and detecting abilities until your team fully rotates.

As for retakes, you should take Haven's A-site step-by-step. Don't be afraid to use your abilities in any of these steps. Firstly clear out Cubby and Hell, then head towards Sewer Path. Now once you clear A-Sewer, you can either go from there and clear A-Long or go back and clear it from the site. If you're an agent like Sage, you can essentially wall off one of these locations.

Haven's B-site alongside the callouts is the most tricky site on the map. There's really only one main entry point, and it shortly connects with both other sites making rotates much faster. Nevertheless, with the right team, strategy, and knife skin, B-site can still be conquered.

How to Attack B-Site on Haven

When attacking Haven's B-site, you should have four players push from Mid Window and another overlook C-Garage from Mid Doors. You should plan for a quick and fast push to plant the spike as fast as possible before the enemy team rotates. Use smokes on C-Link and A-Link, then use Duelist flash abilities to clear camping enemies on Tower and Box.

Aim to plant the spike on Default so you can overlook it from Mid Window. Don't plan to stay on-site for long, as the enemies may be swarming by the time you plant the spike. Once you fall back, just stall for time with your abilities and you should get an easy win.

How to Defend B-Site on Haven

The best way to defend B-site on Haven is to either place a Sage wall or a Controller smoke at the entrance of B-site. Play with an Operator for easy picks on enemies trying to enter the site without any abilities. Wait until your team rotates for a fair fight, which should be fast.

If by any chance the enemies plant the spike, use 1-2 flashes to clear off the site first. Then if you're two or more players on your team, you can place a Controller smoke on the entrance of the B-site, and one can defuse the spike while the others can defend him. But if you're alone, you'll want to clear Mid Courtyard and Mid Window before defusing, which can be a hard task.
