Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 is now live on every platform. The developers at Ubisoft also released the patch notes for the update. The previously announced Match Cancellation feature will finally come to Siege. Players can cancel a match if the lobby is formed with less than 10 players. You can also cancel the match if one player leaves the match before the first round starts.

The update also makes some balancing changes. Melusi has been drastically nerfed. The penalty zone is reduced by 33 percent. Max Range Penalty Radius is reduced by two meters and Critical Penalty Radius by one meter. The sound effect of the Banshee has also lowered. Ace and Melusi also went through small nerfs. Now, their abilities will not cause damage through reinforced walls. They will also not destroy gadgets through walls.

All the other changes in the update are bug fixes. You can read all about them below or on the official site.
