A new form of hacks has surfaced in the Rainbow Six Siege community, through which players are now able to put up reinforced walls wherever they want.
Reddit user Tav-reth posted a video, showcasing the unusual Siege gameplay where hackers deployed reinforced walls, but not on the soft walls. Instead, the reinforcements were placed in the middle of the Cigar Lounge on Kafe.
It seems like the hackers are now taking map-remodeling in Rainbow Six Siege to a whole new level. The hacker, playing Mira in the clip, can be seen interacting with the reinforced walls just like a normal one. Moreover, the cheater can also be seen cutting off a part of the reinforcement with only Mira’s primary Vector SMG.
Many of the objectives are already defender-sided, and these out-of-place reinforced walls will surely bamboozle the best of the attackers.
This incident surely raises a lot of concern for BattlEye, the anti-cheat software used in Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft stated in the latest top issues blog that they would release “additional measures and fixes” with Operation Neon Dawn, but it doesn’t seem to have much effect on the current cheating situation.
Even recently, there was a new exploit that allowed players to forcefully join other player’s lobbies without the need of an invite. However, Ubisoft did release a quick patch to fix the issue, but at the expense of players requiring to have at least one friend already in the squad.
It is still tough to completely fix cheating problems in video games. But hopefully, in Year 6 of Siege, Ubisoft will be able to turn this around and manage to provide a better experience for everyone.
