Rainbow Six Siege Deploys Numerous Bug Fixes, Full Patch Notes
The team-based tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has been in the midst of implementing numerous refinements over the last few months, many of which aim to combat cheaters and toxic behavior. The latest patch has now brought this amending focus to gameplay, this time taking out a myriad of the game’s lingering bugs and instabilities.
Going live this past week, the Y3S3.1.2 patch addresses quite a few issues plaguing the game lately such as misaligned reticles, an invisibility glitch, and players getting stuck inside objects. Other welcome fixes include several other instances of clipping, a few distinct latency problems, and various minor inconsistencies with map, weapon, and item behavior.
Most notably repaired was a lingering exploit with deployable shields, which will no longer be able to block other players from vaulting through a window. Attempting to do so will now place the strategic barrier slightly aside, leaving just enough room for players to complete the jump.
This round of extensive bug fixes for Rainbow Six Siege is all in preparation for a number of back-end changes, which are expected to arrive at a later date. Also being saved for the future are a series of balancing changes to Operators, the update currently “undergoing testing” on the game’s Technical Test Server. The Y3S3.1.2 patch is currently live for PC, but console versions are expected to be implemented by the end of October. Full patch notes can be viewed below.
This maintenance is for PC only today. The console patch will come at the end of the month along with the Y3S3.2 patch.
