Rainbow Six Siege Patch Notes Released, Here's What's New

Rainbow Six Siege’s Tachanka may have taken the spotlight this week with the Operator’s rework shown off during a big gameplay reveal, but that’s not the only newsworthy happenings in Siege. An update was also released this week that fixed more than a few issues players have been encountering in the tactical shooter. The patch notes for that update released showed everything that was changed before the update went live for the PC platform, and Ubisoft also shared an update on the console release plans.

Those looking for changes to Operators and maps in Siege may be disappointed by this update. There aren’t any major changes like those to look for, but there are some welcome bug fixes.

In fact, that’s entirely what the update is about. From gameplay problems to solutions for problems affecting individual Operators, it’s all about bugfixes in the latest Siege update. You can see those changes all listed below courtesy of Ubisoft’s patch notes.
