Rainbow Six Siege Patch Y6S3.3 deploying today on live servers

Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Siege‘s Y6S3.3 patch is being released today, October 19th, on all platforms.

As we’ve covered in the designer’s notes, the Y6S3.3 patch is bringing some big balancing changes to the game. The changes include a Kapkan rework, recoil nerf to Mx4 and P10 Roni, an increased number of hard-breach charges, and more.

To spice up Kapkan’s gameplay, Siege devs have now allowed him to place more than one trap on a single door and window frame. If one Entry Denial Device can deal significant damage to an operator, then imagine five EDDs on a single door. This will surely make attackers think twice or thrice before rushing through doors and windows when Kapkan is present.

Y6S3.3 PATCH SIZE

Below you will find the download sizes for each platform.

  • Ubisoft Connect: 2.21 GB
  • Steam: 1.7 GB
  • Xbox One: 1.2 GB
  • Xbox Series X: 3.7 GB
  • PS4: 1.4 GB
  • PS5: 1.13 GB

The update will go live today at 1 PM UTC for PC users; 2 PM & 3 PM UTC for Xbox and PlayStation users respectively. Check out the full patch notes below:
