Rainbow Six patch coming to consoles next week

Big bug fixes and a little more coming to #Rainbow6 Siege

Update 2.1 dropped for PC players yesterday, and is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 16. The patch will fix many issues that popped up following the release of Black Ice on February 2, which added a new map and two new operators. Most glaringly, many matches resulted in at least one player being stuck in a T-pose and having no textures, just a black silhouette, and sometimes having their own screen obscured.

The above video shows a symptom of the T-pose bug, in this case the player could not see unless prone.

Other fixes include stopping exploits that allowed Kapkan traps to have an invisible laser, Bandit players duplicating batteries, and poor headshot hit detection. The patch is not all bug fixes, as it also includes a new spectator camera for custom matches. Full patch notes are available on the Ubisoft forums.

Rainbow Six Siege launched in December 2015, and VG Newswire gave it a positive review, calling it “unrivaled as a tactical shooter.”
