Rainbow Six Siege Y4S2.1 Update Patch Notes

The Rainbow Six Siege Y4S2.1 update brings with it plenty of bug fixes, exploit updates, and improvements to player comfort. As stated above, the new update is available to download on PC right now, June 21, whereas it will go live on PS4 and Xbox One on June 27. Read on for some of the patch notes highlights in a little more detail.

Exploit Update

The Rainbow Six Siege development team has been hard at work trying to iron out any exploits that players can think of. The Y4S2.1 update addresses the IQ Operator glitch exploits that have been plaguing the game. On PC, at least, you should be able to now play as IQ without reproducing the annoying exploit. IQ remains unplayable on PS4 and Xbox One until June 27. If anyone is able to reproduce the annoying IQ exploit on PC after the deployment of the latest patch, however, Ubisoft will remove IQ from the PC version of the game until the Operator has been fixed for good.

Player Comfort

The Rainbow Six Siege developers have added in a new controller rotation curve option to the game. This is focused “on the early part when shooting and then offering a steady variation until the full movement,” according to Ubisoft. Ubisoft is aiming for “a more consistent curve as players move their joystick further from neutral.”

Bug Fixes

Along with the exploit fixes and player comfort controller rotation curve alterations above, there are plenty of bug fixes to be found in the Rainbow Six Siege Y4S2.1 update. This includes a fix that means you should now be able to perform a dropshot without losing ADS. Several Operators and maps have had bugs ironed out, too. You can read through the complete list of patch notes below.

Exploits Update

We have been testing a solution to some of the exploits that should address the IQ glitch. With this update in place we have not been able to reproduce this exploit internally. As such, we are pushing a patch today on PC only.

We are planning to deploy this same patch on consoles as soon as possible, the earliest deployment window available to us is Thursday, June 27th. Until then, IQ will be removed from the operator selection screen for consoles.

If you are able to reproduce this exploit following the patch deployment, please let us know through the R6Fix portal. If that is the case, we will remove IQ from the operator selection screen on PC as well. We will continue to work on addressing the exploits for Clash and Deployable Shields and share updates as we progress.

Player Comfort

Controller Rotation Curve

We are providing an additional option for controller rotation curves. This new version of the curve focuses on the early part when shooting and then offering a steady variation until the full movement. Our goal is to deliver a more consistent curve as players move their joystick further from neutral.
