A new update has been released for Rainbow Six Siege that introduces tougher punishments for players who kill their teammates.
Following the update, the penalty for team killing will be a 30-minute ban from matchmaking, increasing to an hour for the second offense, all the way up to a seven-day ban.
“The team killing penalty for a first offense will be adjusted from a kick to a 30 minute ban,” Ubisoft wrote. “Initially, if a player was team killed in Casual, the offender was kicked from the match. The same situation in Ranked would result in a kick as well, but also triggered an abandon penalty. This was confusing because it seemed as if the team killing punishment was different between Ranked vs Casual.”

The update is available now on PC, and will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 tomorrow, September 19th.
