General Tweaks & Improvements

Game Balancing

Hatch Reinforcement Changes

Hatch Reinforcements will now allow for partial destruction.
Our goal is to deliver less binary destruction for hatches. We have made improvements to how Hatch Reinforcements are handled within the game, and are able to work around some of the blockers that prevented partial destruction from being possible.

Player Comfort

Idle Operator Pick

If you are not able to select an Operator before the end of the selection phase, you will no longer be a Recruit. You will be a random Operator from the list of Operators you have unlocked, barring any already selected by your teammates.
For those 11 Recruit mains out there, your reign of terror is not over. You will still be able to select a Recruit manually.

Improved Mute Functions

We are implementing additional muting functions to allow our players to take more control of their Rainbow Six Siege experience. Players will now be able to mute each player in the game individually. For example, you can mute the text chat of Emilien, the voice chat of Grabriel, text and voice for Craig, and neither for Amelie.

Game Health

Dynamic Resolution Scaling

We are introducing dynamic resolution on consoles. The goal is to improve image quality when the GPU load is lighter, and render better framerate in GPU-heavy scenes. As a result, you will experience more consistent performance during gameplay, especially in situations where there are a lot of stress on the GPU, such as with a lot of explosions like Fuze charges.
Here are further details on dynamic resolution on consoles:
  • Xbox One outputs at 900p with a render scaling between 40% (1012x572) and 80% (1432x804).
  • PS4 outputs at 1080p with a render scaling between 40% (1216x684) and 80% (1720x968).
  • Xbox One X outputs at 1728p with a render scaling between 40% (1944x1092) and 100% (3072x1728).
  • PS4 Pro outputs at 1440p with a render scaling between 40% (1620x912) and 100% (2560x1440).

Playlist Changes

Map Rotation

With the addition of the reworked Hereford Base map, we will be updating the Ranked and Casual playlists. We will have 12 maps in the Ranked rotation, and 18 in the Casual playlist. All maps will be available in Custom Games.
