Next Rainbow Six Siege Update Will Address Matchmaking Exploits and Cheating

Rainbow Six Siege is a multiplayer game solely dependent on its community to thrive, and Ubisoft is addressing the many instances of exploitation and cheating with its latest update. The Y4S3.3 update is now live on PS4.

Rainbow Six Siege features an MMR (matchmaking rating) system that allows users to be paired with those at their skill level, based on stats. However, many users have been exploiting the system, causing an artificial imbalance. Ubisoft will be resetting the stats of those who are caught exploiting the system and revoking the ability to gain the seasonal ranked charm as punishment. Along with that, Ubisoft has fixed the ability to use a third-party hack to change the operators of other players.

Here’s the schedule for Rainbow Six Siege’s maintenance.

The full list of Rainbow Six Siege’s Y4S3.3 patch notes can be found below:
