TS Patch Notes Earlygame

Ubisoft, the developer of Rainbow Six Siege, just released their patch notes for the Siege test server which includes the new rooftop reinforcement rework, vault detection changes, and bomb remodel to prevent pixel peeks.

The main change is the rooftop rework, which reinforces hatches across all maps by default. These hatches will have to be destroyed by a hard breacher. This rework is still being tested and if players don’t like the changes, Ubisoft will revert them back to the normal destructible hatches. The vault detection changes are also really helpful in detecting spawn peeks and runouts from defenders. This will make it easier for the attackers to spot aggression from the defenders.
