Rainbow Six Siege’s New Update Adds Anti-Bullying Feature

Ubisoft has rolled out a new update for the PC version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The latest update now prevents players from bullying their teammates.

According to Ubisoft, update 4.3 includes a new anti-bullying feature, which prevents players from picking on one of their teammates and harassing them after a match. Since the launch of update 4.3 players who are caught killing the same teammate twice will not face a standard team killing penalty. Details on the killing penalty offense can be found below:

  • First offense:
    • Casual- Kicked from the match.
    • Ranked- Banned for 15 minutes, 50% Renown penalty for 30 minutes.
  • Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes.
  • Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
  • Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
  • Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.

Additionally, update 4.3 also stops players from avoiding Caveira’s interrogation as a result of quitting an online multiplayer match. Starting today,  regardless of whether the player is still in the match or not, the interrogation will finish.

Lastly, the latest update makes several modifications to the network infrastructure. “This upgrade does not come without risks,” the publisher states, “but it is a pivotal step toward having a more reliable service, as well as give us the tools we need to correct connectivity issues more quickly. While this update will not correct all connectivity problems right now, the update to our infrastructure is aimed more towards preparing us for the road ahead. You will see a reduction in connectivity issues in future patches as we continue to utilize these improvements to positively impact your gaming experience!”

Update 4.3 is now available on PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will have access to the new update on October 18th.
