The Rainbow Six Siege 4.2 Patch Notes list a boatload of changes, but there isn’t really much new per se — this is a patch that’s exclusively focused on repairing some of the less ideal portions of the game’s functionality.

One of the big-ticket items in these patch notes is a fix for the “Clash exploit”. Simply put, the operator Clash had severe enough problems with causing unintended gameplay that she was entirely removed from the game while Ubisoft figured things out. Now, she’ll be returning to the roster without all of those pesky game-breaking side effects that caused no shortage of annoyance of fans.

Another key area that’s gotten some improvements is hit detection for bullets. There are lots of things that you can shoot at and shoot through, and they don’t always get things ri ght the first time around. As an example, it was previously possible for hostages to be shot through both reinforced and unbreakable walls if they happened to be standing too close to them. This issue has now been rectified.

Similar fixes have also been deployed for operators and props. Previously, it was possible for operator hitboxes to clip through reinforced walls and be shot; that issue has now been rectified as noted in the Rainbow Six Siege 4.2 Patch Notes. Additionally, a number of map props were properly destroyed when they were shot to heck and many of these issues were also resolved.

These are far from the only fixes being added to the game in this patch! Go ahead and read the full Rainbow Six Siege 4.2 Patch Notes!
