Rainbow Six Siege players on PC will be experiencing 30-minute maintenance as the developers are deploying a small update to fix an annoying issue with a crash bug.

Rainbow Six Siege is almost in the half of Y6S4, and players are preparing themselves for the Road to S.I. event as well as the announcement of Y7S1.

That being said, supporting the game with hotfixes and balance updates will still continue as before. The latest update of the game drops today on PC, but it doesn’t deliver a long list of fixes, changes, or balances. It’s just a small hotfix for a single but annoying issue.

Rainbow Six Siege PC Update Patch Notes for January 13

  • This hotfix fixes a crash which would occur when players shot a specific point on a map.

Recently, Ubisoft shared Designer’s Note for Y6S4.2 and revealed a number of upcoming balance changes for some of the operators. According to the notes, Ela and Zofia will no longer experience speed reduction when affected by Grzmot or KS97’s concussions.

Despite this little buff for Ela, her shotgun will be nerfed significantly. The developers are determined to lower the damage rate of FO-12 to 25 from 35. They will also reduce the damage modifier of the weapon’s Extended Barrel attachment.

Moreover, Aruni’s single-fire MK14 will receive a Muzzle Brake as an attachment.

Rainbow Six Siege is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The Xbox Game Pass subscribers on consoles can now play it for free. Also, the game will be launched on PC Game Pass on January 20 this year. The same day that Rainbow Six Extraction will be launched on Xbox Game Pass.
