Earlier this year, Ubisoft said it would be implementing stricter moderation in Rainbow Six Siege to find and sanction players using hate speech. Recently, players have started noticing an uptick in bans being issued and have been discussing it on the game’s subreddit. A few even took to Twitter to complain.
Operation Para Bellum is now live on PC and console and brings with it a new patch which, among other things, has removed the ability to throw grenades back at enemies. In addition to new operators, this update also adds the Villa map, a mafia safe house on a country estate that looks absolutely lovely.
Starting this week, Ubisoft plans to issue permanent bans for Rainbow Six Siege’s most toxic players, according to a recent announcement on the game’s subreddit.
Finka and Lion will be the next two operators joining the Rainbow Six: Siege roster, as part of the game’s third year of post-launch support. The two biohazard specialists will bring some chemicals and tech to the game alongside the Operation Chimera update on March 6.
Rainbow Six Siege players aren’t happy after Ubisoft announced the game’s next event, “Outbreak,” will include character items that can only be found in special new loot boxes. As you might imagine, longtime players are not thrilled.

The tactical, tough team-based shooter Rainbow Six Siege has picked up a lot of traction in the past six months. That’s been possible thanks to the release of new maps, new character releases, updates and bug fixes, turning one of Ubisoft’s more low-key releases of the past year into one of the best shooters out…

In Rainbow Six Siege, you’re never completely safe. Case in point: in this GIF by uhmsay, an enemy is hunkered down with the (reviled by many) riot shield and heavy armor in a difficult-to-breach room. And yet, their death is still swift and brutal. The lesson? When in doubt, reinforce the floor.
Cheaters are the bane of multiplayer games’ existence. Regrettably, however, some games go easier on them than others. For a while, Rainbow Six Siege was one of those games.
Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical team-based shooter where lone wolf tactics are often punishable by swift, well-deserved death. But what happens when all your teammates leave a match and you have no choice but to go it alone? For most, it’s certain doom. For one player, it was an opportunity.
Rainbow Six Siege just got a big update. 1.2 is not meant to fix all top issues, but it does improve hit registration (again), server tick rate, and matchmaking.

Meet the person that has guns for hands and likes to clean trapped in Rainbow Six Siege. PC Gamer associate editor James Davenport decided to try and be a (peaceful) cleaner in Rainbow Six Siege. The resulting faux-interview with his character, Cleany Gunhands, is comedy gold.
