Rainbow Six Siege Update Fixes Sam Fisher Bugs and Much More

A new Rainbow Six Siege update has arrived on the game’s test servers, and with that update comes a bunch of fixes for problems related to the game’s latest Operator. Sam Fisher, better known as “Zero” in his Rainbow Six Siege debut, was added in the game’s latest Operation, and with him being the newest Operator on the roster, he’s got the most issues to fix. Other Operators and different parts of the game like maps and the overall user experience also got some bug fixes.

If it sounds like there are a lot of bug fixes to take in from the patch notes, that’s because the update is full of bug fixes and bug fixes alone. There are plenty of them to look at, especially if you’ve been playing as Zero lately with the release of Operation Shadow Legacy.

The notes for the update can be found below courtesy of Ubisoft.
