New Rainbow Six Siege Update Is Being Tested, Here's What's New

Ubisoft has another Rainbow Six Siege update that’s currently on the test servers for players to try out before it goes live for everyone. It deals mostly with the Operator known as Jackal as some previous changes are still being tested alongside some new adjustments for other characters and a bunch of bugfixes. The update is still live in the test servers as of this week, so those with access to that part of the game can preview what’s coming before it officially arrives.

The notes for the latest update were shared on the game’s subreddit where Ubisoft provided a breakdown of everything that’s new. The changes for Jackal weren’t really touched on here, though those have been on the test servers for some time, so many players have probably become acquainted with them already. If not, you can see what’s happening to that Operator here.
