Rainbow Six Siege Y6S1.1 Patch Notes: Fixes Recoil Bug, Knife Peek & Drone Cam exploit, and more

Ubisoft has just released Rainbow Six Siege Patch Y6S1.1 on the PC live servers, and it brings a lot of important fixes to the game.

With the Y6S1 Crimson Heist update, a lot of new bugs and exploits were introduced, which went under the dev’s eyes during the Test Server period. And now, Ubisoft is making things right by fixing these important issues that include the recoil bug, knife peek exploit, match cancellation abuse, and more.

The recoil bug was introduced with the new season, and it was causing the vertical recoil to stop or slow down while spraying with a gun. This weird recoil bug was messing up with the player’s muscle memory, as they were unintentionally overcompensating the recoil. However, with Patch Y6S1.1, this issue seems to be mitigated.

Alongside this, the devs have also fixed the ‘Knife Peek’ exploit, which was caused by the new ‘Lean Reset’ system, and allowed players to peek corners while lean knifing to get an unfair perspective advantage.

As promised by Ubisoft, the new “Streamer Mode” has been added to the game; however, it will only work in preventing queue sniping as of now. But, a more robust streamer mode is coming in the future. Alongside this, Ubisoft has also changed the “Charms Menu” that can now be sorted by rarity and alphabetical order. However, this is a temporary fix, and a fully revamped version of the Charms selection is coming in the future.
