Rainbow Six Siege Y7S4.2 Patch Now Live; Extended Barrel Buff and more introduced

Rainbow Six Sieges mid-season Y7S4.2 Patch is releasing today, as announced by Ubisoft.

The new Y7S4.2 is set to bring some exciting new changes to Rainbow Six Siege, including some big weapon-balancing updates.

The most talked-about change from this new patch has to be the Extended Barrel attachment buff, which will now increase weapon damage by 15%. With this rework, many of the guns in Siege will now have great damage stats, making the underused weapons more popular. However, there is also a possibility of some weapons becoming insanely good, so Ubisoft might still have some work left in their hands.
