Rainbow Six Siege’s much-anticipated Reputation System is finally being released in different phases, with the first one coming with Operation Vector Glare.

Ubisoft recently unveiled Rainbow Six Siege’s Y7S2 Operation Vector Glare, which is bringing a new operator, shooting range, and the Reputation System phase 1.

The Reputation System was announced back in Year 6, but the devs took their time to build a system that will work for all the players. This feature was made to discourage griefers, who intentionally ruin the gameplay experience for other players by teamkilling or their toxic behavior.

According to the reveal panel, in Y7S2 the first phase of the Reputation System will enable Reverse Friendly Fire by default for players who create a negative experience. As the name suggests, Reverse Friendly Fire will deal the damage caused to teammates back to themselves. So intentional griefers won’t be able to harm their teammates until the penalty is removed.

The Reverse Friendly Fire sanction could last up to 30 matches, and griefers will have to play multiple matches without injuring any teammates. This is a great initiative taken by Ubisoft to tackle the bad side of the Siege community.

However, there are also many good players in the game, and the Reputation System will also provide them with rewards to encourage good behavior. But, this rewarding feature has not been confirmed yet, and will most probably release in phase 2 or 3 of the Reputation System.
