Rainbow Six Siege Operation Dread Factor Patch Notes Addendum

Rainbow Six Siege Y8S2 Patch Notes Addendum Steam/Ubisoft

The Year 8 Season 2 of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is now available on the main build of the game. Operation Dread Factor brings a map rework, brand-new operator, tons of changes, bug fixes, and improvements. Developer Ubisoft also released the patch notes addendum, detailing the upcoming changes for the live server.

The bug where the defuser can't be picked up when sprinting and operators can't melee enemies through shields have been addressed. Brava's Kludge drone will overload and disable Aruni's Surya Gate rather than convert it. The developer has assured players that this is a temporary fix and a later update will allow the said drone to convert Surya Gate.
