Rainbow Six: Siege Has A Cheater Problem

Rainbow Six: Siege Has A Cheater Problem

There is video recordings of the Gltiches mentioned below. They have since been submitted to Ubisoft. Obviously I did not post them here to avoid people using those same glitches in game. Post based on PC version.

Rainbow Six: Siege is currently having a few struggles. The latest patch brought in more issues than it fixed. DLC has been delayed, leaving the current map cycle feeling too familiar. Players keeping choosing the same Operators, leaving ineffective ones in the shadows. All these issues are nothing compared to the current crop of cheaters.

More and more, players are finding various exploits, using them to gain unfair advantages. Popular glitches include leaving the area to plant C4 in attacking player spawns during the prep phase. Sitting in attacking spawns, ready to gun down the enemy team, is also on the up. It’s killing Siege, shattering any motivation to play the game.


No idea why Thatcher is looking away from the game

Siege seems to be at the mercy of its players. Team killing is a common occurrence, as too is general trolling. Flash banging team members, blocking player’s movements and spamming voice chat is are major problems. Vote kick is an option, but these votes are only valid for 30 seconds. Siege’s in-game interface is awful, making it hard to vote kick a player in the allotted time.

Even with Vote Kick being an option, the punishments do not fit the crime. Players are free to join another game (unless it’s a kick from Ranked) and continue their shitty behaviour. This needs to change. Ubisoft have plenty of experience with online shooters, they shouldn’t of allowed this problem to exist. It’s a genuine shame that such a fresh Multiplayer shooter is at the mercy of a minority of players. Glitching should be a permanent ban, Team Killing and trolling need suitable consequences.


The current fan base (at least on PC) is generally loyal. They’ve already looked passed poor netcode, hitboxes and menu bugs. Patience only stretches so far, Ubisoft need to do something before things go sour. Don’t waste the good work put into Siege, don’t discard your customers yet again.

    after 130h i’ve NEVER seen obvious cheaters also defenders shooting outside is actually fun part of the game since it forces attackers to keep time in mind and make use of the second drone. writing bull** is not helpful at all

      Think there’s confusion here. Shooting out towards attacking teams is fine. What i’m talking about here is players leaving the area in the opening stages of the game. As you know, defending teams can’t leave the area, but people are glitching to get passed this. They’ll glitch out, run to the attacking player spawn and await for the drone phase to end. It all results in the attacking team spawning and instantly getting killed. This article is not bullshit, if you did a quick youtube search you’d see the glitches in action. :)

    Game is absolutely horrendous, servers are trash and the hitboxes are oversized like it’s Call of Duty.. Way to ruin what should have been the only decent shooter This-Gen with every other shooter being made for children.

    Gaming has gone to SHIT.
