Rainbow Six Siege Update Patch Notes

The full patch notes for Rainbow Six Siege are as follows:



Visual upgrade for destruction effects and ripples

Visual design upgrade for Police cars.

Visual upgrades and optimizations have been ongoing, and the new destruction decals and police paint jobs are a part of that. Destruction decals are now optimized for 4K and come in a greater variety, and the police cars have that new car smell.



  • Nerf to .44 Mag Semi Auto
  • Increased recoil (will now be more difficult to chain shots precisely at long range)
  • Decreased damage (reduced from 74 > 54)


  • Stun grenades (3) replaced with Claymore (1)

The synergy between Nomad’s airjabs and the three stun grenades gave her a bit too much CC utility individually. While the addition of a Claymore can provide Nomad with some trap functionality, we’ll be monitoring the interactions between her gadget and the Claymore to see if this is a better fit.


  • Adjustments to Valkyrie’s throw curve.
  • Throw curve now projects straight from the center of the player cam.
  • Can no longer be thrown to excessive distances.
  • We re-adjusted the new throw curves for Valkyrie’s Black Eye to take original design into consideration. Valk also started focusing more on leg day for a balanced workout routine.


  • IQ’s gadget now responds different to recoil.
  • After the recoil update in Grim Sky, this change was made to help optimize the interaction between IQ’s gadget and the new recoil changes.
