New Rainbow Six Siege Update Heads to Test Servers, Here's What's New

Rainbow Six Siege players have a new update now on the test servers to play around with before the patch goes live for everyone. It comes after the release of the lasted Operation called Operation Shifting Tides that introduced new Operators and more to the game. Unfortunately for anyone who’s expecting to see more changes made after that Operation’s release, this update is mostly just filled with bugfixes to resolve problems which might’ve come up before.

The many bugfixes and other solutions to issues were shared on the Rainbow Six Siege subreddit where the patch notes are typically found. Bugs related to gameplay, the Operators themselves, and the levels players compete on were all fixed.

You can find the full list of patch notes below, though there’s also a list of known issues found in the official patch notes in case you have a problem that hasn’t been resolved here yet.
