Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege received a small update today. Patch Y6S4.2 brought balancing changes to three operators, fixed audio issues on Xbox, and squashed almost two dozen bugs.

Aruni is getting more options for attachments. She can now equip the Muzzle Brake attachment to MK14. Ela’s shotgun, FO-12, received a nerf with its damage output reduced to 25 from the previous 35. From now on, the movement speed of players will not be affected by Grzmot Mine and KS79 concussion effects.

The developer has added a new icon to show an audio issue occurring from the player’s side.

We have mentioned the highlights of the update below:


  • Muzzle Brake attachment can be equipped on the MK14.
  • FO-12
    • Reduced damage to 25 (from 35).
    • Reduced Extended Barrel attachment damage modifier to be consistent with other weapons.
  • Concussion effect of Grzmot Mine and KS79 no longer affects movement speed.
  • Investigations are ongoing for the crashes related to audio issues on Xbox and it's suspected to be related to sound data corruption.
  • Today's patch aims to help limit the number of crashes related to these issues and will allow the team to collect data from active cases to help further investigations.
  • A new icon (see below) has been introduced and will appear in-game when a related audio issue is identified on your end.

    • If you see this audio icon, rebooting the console at your earliest convenience should help avoid the issue and minimize the chance of crashing.
  • The team will continue to share progress updates via the Siege Twitter account as a more extensive fix for this issue is worked on.

As mentioned above, the patch also addressed several bugs. You can read about them in detail on Steam.
