Rainbow Six Y6S4 High Calibre Patch Notes Addendum

Rainbow Six Siege recently received an update containing bug fixes and improvements to the HUD. The developers are reworking the HUD because most players don’t like it taking a big part of their screen. So, the developers have taken multiple steps, such as reducing the compass size, dimming the action reminder opacity while the player is aiming down sights, and adding an option to choose between Advanced/Simplified compass in the HUD options.

In this patch, the developers addressed tons of bugs present in-game. One major issue where the grenade indicator color is inconsistent with the level of threat has been fixed. This issue was annoying because players weren’t able to determine if the grenade was about to explode.
