Rainbow Six Siege Players Recruited Into New ‘Bug Hunter Program’, Rewards For Finding Issues
The developers over at Ubisoft are enlisting volunteer players who would like to participate in the new “Bug Hunter Program”. It will allow players to seek out issues while they are playing and communicate them back to the development team so that they can be addressed. To thank them for all of their efforts, players will be rewarded for the successful reports in the form of in-game items and the knowledge that they helped bring more stability and fixes to the game they so adore. They made the announcement on the official Rainbow Six Siege Twitter:
Get your nets ready.
We're rolling out our brand new Bug Hunter Program, an initiative designed to reward players who report bugs on the TS.
Play on the Test Server and get rewards by using R6Fix!

In a post on the Rainbow Six Siege website, the studio explained how the program works and what players can do to participate.
It’s simple, all you have to do is report any issue you might encounter on the Test Server through R6Fix. You can find a detailed guide on how to report issues here as well as an FAQ. Once we receive your report, our QA team will test it and try to reproduce it, if they succeed, your contribution will be marked as Acknowledged. All issues need to be in English, clearly stated and with visual evidence, either a screenshot or a video that clearly shows the problem. Only the first person to report the acknowledged bug will receive credit towards the rewards.”
Players should keep in mind that the development team stated that “all duplicated issues after this first report will be automatically discarded and will not count in order to get the rewards.” So for players who are finding issues that are consistently getting discarded, the developers have an example of the bug are dealing with it.
Potential bug hunters might be interested in what type of rewards can be expected. According to the post, one of the old bugs seen in Rainbow Six Siege, known as “raptor legs”, will be given out as a Frost Charm for those players that reach 3 acknowledged bugs. They are planning to add more thresholds in the near future and will make an announcement at that time on what type of new rewards can be expected.
