Rainbow Six Siege Y6S2.2 patch is now available on all platforms. The Designer’s Notes released earlier this month have revealed some plans on balancing certain weapons and operators. The new update just adds more tweaks and improvements on top of those changes.

Frost and Zofia are just some of the operators who have received balance changes. For instance, Frost got her 1.5x scope removed from C1, and Zofia’s modified M762 is now a bit harder to control thanks to the added recoil.

Some weapons have also received adjustments. The ACS12 and TCSG-12 have their damage increased to 69 and 63, respectively.

Notable Additions

The developers have added some new things in the latest update for you to play with.

The Favela map is now available on both Unranked and Ranked playlists. You can test out this map to your heart’s content.

In addition, you will now have the option to block or report players who have disconnected from the game before the last EOR replay. This is just to help you weed out those who you do not want to play with in the future.
