The mid-season update of Rainbow Six Siege Y8S1 is finally here and so are many changes and bug fixes. All the previously announced balancing tweaks are here, including buffs for Tachanka and Wamai. Kapkan and Oryx won’t be topping the charts anymore as they both lost their 1.5x sights.

The Extended Barrel received a nerf as its damage bonus decreased to 12% from the previous 15. Brava’s Kludge drone will now turn Aruni's Surya Gate to the attacker’s side instead of switching them off. The duration of Capitão’s smoke arrow is increased to 11 seconds.

  • FIXED – Solis remains in her scanning animation for too long after performing a scan.
  • FIXED – Brava’s Kludge Drone briefly displays positive feedback for a device that is out of range if it’s the first one scanned in the match.
