The most recent Rainbow Six Siege patch has reportedly introduced a number of game-breaking bugs, and made the experience worse for many.
A quick look over the game’s sub-Reddit reveals a front page full of disgruntled fans, a lot of whom have taken to document the newly-introduced bugs and glitches to help the developer fix them. There are endless gifs and YouTube videos showing them off, too.
Generally, the list can be boiled down to three major issues:
- Knife hits not registering, even after multiple swipes
- Player models getting stuck in a T-pose on occasion, preventing opponents from knowing your true orientation
- Hit dedication issues of multiple hits not registering or full magazines not killing enemies
This YouTube video by Airyeezy1995 shows all of them off clearly. They all happen in a single match, which is unfortunate.
There are a number of other reported glitches and issues, some of which were never fixed since launch. Some of these, like the Nitro Glitch and teleport bugs, have increased in severity, according to reports on the site.
Siege is due for another patch mid-February, but it’s not clear at this stage whether or not hotfixes will be implemented before that time.
