The most recent character added to Rainbow Six Siege has the ability to interrogate enemies who then reveal the locations of teammates. To get around selling out teammates players had to simply quit before Caveira’s interrogation was completed. However, now through update 4.3, Caveira will get the information no matter what. There is also a new anti bullying system being implemented for team killing along with other bugs currently in the game.
For the anti bullying feature implemented in the patch, players will suffer temporary bans if they continue to team kill. If someone team kills the same player twice then they will be kicked from the match on the first offense in a casual game. The first offense for a ranked game will be a 15 minute ban and 50% Renown penalty for 30 minutes. After that if the team killing continues there will be increasing punishments. Ubisoft even noted in the blog post that they would not hear any appeals on the matter. Here is the list of punishments.
- First offense:
- Casual- Kicked from 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.
As previously mentioned there is currently an exploit that allows players not to be interrogated and give up their teammates position. After the new patch is enacted, players using Caveira’s interrogation ability will be able to complete it regardless of whether or not players leave the match or not.
Patch 4.3 will be released today on PC and arrives on consoles on October 18th. Here is the full list of bug fixes and improvements to network infrastructure being implemented in update 4.3.
Improvements to Network Infrastructure
Today we will be updating to our latest internal network library. This upgrade does not come without risks, but is a pivotal steps 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!
As this is new technology that we are experimenting with, there is a possibility that we may be forced to perform a roll back to Patch 4.2. If this is the case, we will correct the issue and deploy the changes below in Patch 4.4, prior to the release of Season 4.
We have implemented an additional update for BattlEye. This update will not add any programs to the white-list.
