Hoewel Ubisoft het in december vorig jaar verschenen Rainbow Six: Siege getrouw van updates voorziet, deed de laatste patch meer fout dan goed. Gelukkig worden deze problemen, en meer, verholpen in Update 2.1 die gisteren voor de pc-versie is verschenen en op 16 februari beschikbaar zal zijn voor de PlayStation 4- en Xbox One-versie van Rainbow: Six Siege.
Patch 2.1 voor Rainbow: Six Siege is 1,2GB groot en brengt de volgende problemen:
Custom Games and Spectator Camera on dedicated servers
10 player Custom Games can now be hosted on dedicated servers, which offers a fair gameplay environment that better suits competition. Dedicated servers means no host advantage, better stability, and makes it harder to cheat. We also are making the Spectator Camera feature available on dedicated servers, allowing an 11th person to observe matches held on those servers. General Tweaks & Improvements
Tweaked Blitz’s head model and hitbox to have the same amount of exposure as the other shield-wielding Operators and Recruits. Blitz’s opponents were able to headshot him with ease over his shield due to his big head model. We have reduced the size of his head model and made his shield taller.
Tweaked recoil on certain weapons in order to make them more controllable.
PKP Pecheneg (PC only) AUG
Added HUD presets in Custom Games to accommodate different needs
Added ESL Pro League S1 HUD, which is the preset chosen by ESL for their tournaments. Altered Hardcore HUD, which is our first iteration leading to the Hardcore Mode. It is not final and is just a first step we can share as we work on completing the Game Mode.
Daily Challenges now accumulate daily without needing to log in
Players no longer need to log in at least once every 24 hours to get a new challenge. Instead, one challenge is granted every day to every player that has at least one free challenge slot, even if they don’t log in.
Fairfight cheating kick message updated to make it clearer
When a player is banned, an unclear message was broadcasted to all players playing in public matchmaking ‘[PLAYER] has removed from the match by FairFight™.’ From now on, the message ‘[PLAYER] has been banned from the game by FairFight™.’ will be broadcasted instead.
