Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six


 

Rainbow Six Siege‘s latest update is scheduled to go live later today, January 11th, Ubisoft has announced.

The update adds a pause button to the UI that will allow the host of a custom game to pause the match during the Operator Selection phase. The host simply has to press [End]/[Start+DPAD UP] to stop the timer.

Alongside this new feature, the update also fixes a number of bugs, including a drone being able to use a dead attacker’s shield to move the Defuser, passing through a reinforced wall when placing it, and clipping causing operator’s shields to disappear.
