Posted January 11, 2017 by

The latest update for Rainbow Six Siege is set to go live later today so Ubisoft has revealed exactly what changes it will bring. The update adds a pause button to the UI that will allow the host of a custom game to pause the match during the Operator Selection phase. The host simply has to press [End]/[Start+DPAD UP] to stop the timer.

The update also brings bug fixes, including a drone being able to use a dead attacker’s shield to move the Defuser, passing through a reinforced wall when placing it, and clipping causing operator’s shields to disappear. These fixes should make for an even more enjoyable and balanced experience for players.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Here are the full patch notes:
