Rainbow Six Siege Team Investigating Cheat That Kicks Players From The Game

Ubisoft have deployed a hotfix to minimize the impact, but players are still experiencing issues.


After a month of ongoing connection and server issues, the team behind Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is now investigating a cheat that kicks players from games, often incurring abandon penalties in ranked matches and occasionally even crashing the entire game.

While Ubisoft haven't given too many details about the cheat, players in the comments have elaborated on the problems it's been causing. While only some players have been experiencing game crashes as well as being kicked, the support team confirmed they were related to the cheat in question.

From the account's reply history, it looks like this issue has been affecting some players since at least May 14.

For most players, the biggest issue resulting from this cheat can stem from the automatically applied abandon penalties, especially for players in ranked games.

Rainbow Six Siege is currently looking towards its next big update, with Year 5, Season 2--Operation Steel Wave arriving soon on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Check out everything we know about Steel Wave's two new operators here.
