Rainbow Six Siege Y6S2.1 Patch Arrives - Get2Gaming


Rainbow Six Siege is six years deep, and it is still constantly receiving updates and patches. The most recent update has ushered in the second season of the sixth year of the game.

The new season has introduced the new operator Thunderbird who stems from the Nakoda Nation, a North American First Nation. Alongside the new operator, there has been a complete rework of the Favela map, a personal favourite of mine (although not exactly a fan favourite across the board).

Patch Y6S2.1 has brought in general bug fixes for gameplay, level design, operators and user experience. The new update has a download size of 1.35GB on Ubisoft Connect, 1GB on Steam, 2.85GB on Xbox One, 3.04 GB on Xbox Series X, 1.45GB on PS4, and 1.18GB on PS5.

Rainbow Six Siege Y6S2.1: Details

Gameplay bug fixes:

  • Issues with timers in Quick Match and Newcomer playlists, bulletproof cameras.
  • Players losing control of the first-person view if they join a Custom Game while under an Abandon Penalty
  • Ranked or Unranked match rejoin issue with infinite loading time
  • Other fixed issues include Battle Pass ‘Sweeper’ challenge, Support Mode without Observation Tools, and using a shield on a reinforced wall to pass through it.

The newly reworked Favela map has also seen a lot of new fixes as part of the level design issues.

In terms of operators, Thunderbird has a lot of fixes that include her being locked in-game but unlocked in the Operator album, Kóna Station marker visible to Attackers, or it is inverted during deployment animation. The issue of Kóna Station generating debris or being destroyed during deployment or retrieval has also been fixed. Montagne, Smoke, Jackal, Warden, Ace, Doc, IQ, and Maestro are the other operators that see fixes.

Issues regarding RAW input affecting mouse movement, text and voice chat issues, customisation issues, and others have also been fixed. But Ubisoft seems to have missed some major issues like Fuze’s loadout reverting to default when picked.
