Rainbow Six Siege Y7S3.3 Patch Notes: Doc Buff, New Reputation Center, and more

Rainbow Six Siege‘s much-awaited Y7S3.3 Mid-Season patch is here, and it brings some big changes to the game.

It has been about a month since the introduction of the Y7S3 Operation Brutal Swarm for Rainbow Six Siege, and the developers are still keeping an eye on the operators to make sure they are properly balanced in terms of strength and pick rate.

From the Y7S3.3 Designer’s Notes, Ubisoft already revealed most of these changes, including a huge Doc buff, new Rook Armor withstand ability, Dokkaebi call affecting dead players, and more.

Apart from that, the devs are also introducing a new reputation tile in the main menu (below the packs tile) called the “Reputation Center”, which will display information about a player’s active penalties and their remaining duration. Ubisoft has also shared that this section will be updated in the future to display more information regarding the reputation system.
