  • Reduced Breaching Round explosive damage range to 2m (from 3.5m)
Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

According to the Balancing Matrix, Ash continues to be the Attacker with the highest presence, owing to her strong versatility.

Specifically, the explosion range on her Breaching Round has made her an effective utility denier from below, destroying gadgets in the top floor ceiling, like Kaid's Electroclaws. By reducing this range, this will bring her versatility more in line with other Attackers.


  • Increased shotgun's total ammo to 30+1 (from 26)
  • Added Hard Breach Charge (Removed Claymore)
Population targeted by this change: Pros.

Further differentiating Buck from Sledge and highlighting his unique strategies as a master of destruction, we are increasing his utility with a Hard Breach Charge and additional shotgun ammo.

Combined with his Stun Grenades, we expect the Hard Breach Charge to offer additional versatility and increase his presence in matches.

As his shotgun is less reliable than Sledge's trusty hammer, the extra ammo will ensure Buck brings value to team compositions while accounting for the additional shots required (i.e. two shots required to destroy both layers of the floor).


  • Reduced Yokai drone jump cooldown to 2s (from 3s)
  • Reduced animation time when Yokai fails to stick to the ceiling to 0.5s (from 2s)
  • Reduced Sonic Burst cooldown to 16s (from 20s)
Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

With this patch, we wanted to improve the way Echo's Yokai drone feels to use, focusing on quality of life changes.

Compensating for the removal of invisibility, players will find that the Yokai is more reactive to their commands and has a snappier feel. This empowers Echo to be more aggressive with his drone use.


  • Removed resistance to Concussion effects
  • Removed the ""extra"" mine while in DBNO
Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

With this patch, we intend to remove some of the ""hidden"" mechanics that are not explicitly explained and are based on the character's lore, rather than their balance.

During the Tachanka tests on the TS, the community was very vocal about these kinds of mechanics. The work we did removing these exceptions on Echo last year (i.e. vulnerable to Dokkaebi's Logic Bomb and hacking, allowing IQ to detect his cellphone with the scanner) was mentioned as a step in a positive direction.

We have decided to approach Ela in a similar manner, removing her Concussion resistance and ""extra"" mine. We do not believe these changes will affect her current viability and presence.

Additionally, we feel that removing these ""hidden"" mechanics helps make the game easier to understand and learn for new players while retaining the qualities players pick Ela for.


  • CSRX 300 base damage set to 122
  • 100% damage until 25 meters and linearly falls to 80% (97.6) at 35 meters
Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Looking at our Balancing Matrix, Kali's low presence is due in part to a weapon that is considered underperforming.

We have noticed that the 1-shot-DBNO mechanic has been mentioned several times in balancing surveys as a frustration for players. We understand that the exceptions to this rule (i.e. headshot, limb hit, the target is extremely far away) can cause confusion.

With this in mind, we will remove this rule and turn her sniper into a normal weapon, increasing its base damage in the process. This means that damage will function the same as any other weapon against the armor and health of the target (good news for Rook, as his armor is now useful against her):

  • 1 body shot will kill a 3-speed operator
  • 1 body shot will down a 2-speed operator
  • 1 body shot will damage a 1-speed operator
It is worth noting that we will keep one of the exceptions noted above—the damage to limbs—as we do not want to reward inaccurate shots now that the base damage is higher. We feel this fits with the logic of the weapon and is unlikely to generate the same confusion.


  • Removed 1.5x scope from the T-5
Population targeted by this change: Top Ranked.

Looking at his place on the Balancing Matrix, Lesion brings a lot to teams, making him one of the top roamers.

From a primary gadget that offers strong map control by slowing Attackers and providing intel, to an effective weapon, he has a great deal of utility without factoring in his scope. Since this was already the case before giving him the 1.5x, we have decided to remove this scope from his kit.

Reducing his killing potential slightly, we want to make space for other Operators to find their footing in the roamer role, while also encouraging interesting roaming pairings to emerge.


  • Added Claymore (Removed Hard Breach Charge)
Population targeted by this change: Casual and Top Ranked.

Trading part of his gadget loadout with Buck, Lion is now the proud owner a Claymore. Given his role a roamer focused on control, this shift better fits with his playstyle.

Given the option, players were less likely to choose the Hard Breach Charge. We feel this change will be a more appealing option to Lion players.


  • Removed Angled Grip from the MP5
Population targeted by this change: Ranked.

Melusi continues to have a high presence in matches per the Balancing Matrix, combined with a strong win-delta.

By removing the Angled Grip, her presence is expected to see a reduction back to previous values. She is a valuable asset to teams, but the effectiveness of her MP5 made it possible to outpace roamers at their own game.

We also intend to make adjustments to Melusi's gadget in the future. As gadget changes require more iteration and testing, this will come later on. This Angled Grip change is more immediate, however, as we do want to have something in the short term to address Melusi's current performance.


  • Removed 1.5x scope from the Vector.45 ACP
Population targeted by this change: Top Ranked.

As a result of her perceived ability to hold longer angles with the 1.5x sight, Mira's ban rates have become disproportionately high.

Removing this sight will reduce her killing potential back to previous values, while still maintaining her strong utility in matches. We hope to see a decrease in bans, giving her more chances to see active play.


  • Removed resistance to Concussion effects
  • Removed Withstand
  • Reduced impact grenade explosive damage range to 2m (was 3m)
Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Zofia is considered a strong pick with the second highest Attacker presence, as you can see in the Balancing Matrix above.

Similar to Ela, we are removing some of the ""hidden"" mechanics that are not explicitly explained in the game and instead stem from the character's lore. For Zofia, this means removing her Concussion resistance and Withstand effect, which we do not see affecting her power or presence. We have also observed Zofia's ability to destroy gadgets placed in the top floor ceiling with impact grenades. To balance her currently high presence, we are decreasing their explosive range, slightly reducing her versatility as a utility denier from below.



  • Removed (set to 0) the camera penalization during the Guard Break animation
Population targeted by this change: Top Ranked and Pros.

We introduced this mechanic to counter shield Operators' quick rotation during the Guard Break animation. We initially viewed this quick rotation as a source of frustration and sought to reduce the feeling of putting yourself in danger to engage a shield Operator and not getting anything from it. We've all had that one run-in with a skilled Clash…

But over time observing our community's evolving strategies, this interaction feels more in line with how a skilled shield player uses them.

As a result, we have removed this aspect of ballistic shields, as it wasn't our intention to remove a key component of shield play which created frustration for the player using the shield. Shields should now feel more comfortable to play.


  • Reduced deployment time to 2s (from 3s)
  • Reduced activation time to 5s (from 6s)
Population targeted by this change: Top Ranked and Pros.

Since the introduction of Hard Breach Charges as a secondary gadget, they have been a useful part of Attackers' kits, albeit not quite as reliable as we had intended.

By reducing deployment and activation time, they will become an even more viable option for Attackers, leaving them less exposed and giving Defenders less time to react to their tactics.


  • Improved recoil for: ARX, C8, M1014, TCSG12
Population targeted by this change: Console.

As part of our continued efforts to improve controller game feel on console, specifically while aiming down sight, you will notice tighter recoil on a number of guns, making them more viable options when using a controller.

You will notice that successive shots for both the M1014 and C8 will land closer to one another. Similarly, it should be easier to chain shots with the TCSG12 now. As for the ARX, we have reworked the recoil pattern to keep shots more centered instead of spiking to the side.

Since this is an ongoing topic of discussion and experimentation, these changes reflect a part of the bigger picture. We are continuing to look into the console controller experience and how we can further improve the feel of your loadout.

Thread starter

Flores’ habit of dissecting things to understand them can be both a blessing on the field and a curse in personal matters…”​

If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume a person as appealing and calculating as Santiago “Flores” Lucero is a manipulative egomaniac. However, session after session, it became clearer that he’s just an oddball prodigy with good intentions who cares about people deeply but is never sure how to trust others.









Stun Grenade





Dr. Elena “Mira” Álvarez​

Director of R&D​

“With a remote-controlled function, this device counter-balances the usual unpredictability of explosives in a, dare I say, refreshing way.”


Controlled from a distance, the RCE-Ratero Charge races forward while Flores scouts a location for its blast. Once triggered, the Ratero clutches onto the nearest surface, armors itself with a bulletproof shell, and explodes, destroying nearby gadgets and soft surfaces.


Border has been reworked to improve gameplay and quality of life for players. 1F Bathroom has been expanded to provide a soft wall between the 1F Bathroom and 1F Tellers bomb sites, and the 2F Archives bomb site has been extended into 2F Offices. In addition, an interior balcony now connects East Stairs to 2F Break Room, and a new exterior staircase leads to the 2F Archives balcony.


A new secondary weapon has been added to some Attacker loadouts. The GONNE-6 is Rainbow Six Siege's modern-day hand cannon; it shoots an explosive projectile that detonates on impact with surfaces and destroys bulletproof gadgets. The name is derived from "handgonne," a term that has been used throughout history to refer to hand cannons.


Players now have access to the Watch section (via the Home section), which is where they can find replays saved by the new Match Replay system. This feature allows players to re-watch matches and explore gameplay from all angles and perspectives. The system's control bar allows players to rewind, fast-forward, and select their preferred round and replay speed.


The Newcomer map pool will now feature 5 iconic Siege maps (Coastline, Oregon, Kafe, Bank, and Clubhouse), plus 1 seasonal map that will rotate each season. Each Newcomer map will have two possible bomb site locations, and each match will feature the same bomb sites for all rounds, allowing players to familiarize themselves with the most-played sites.


If an Attacker drones near one of Mozzie's Pests, the icon that appears will now pulse at different speeds, depending on the drone's proximity to the Pest. Attackers can use this new information to rethink their droning strategy when a Pest is near.


When disabled by Mute, the necessary disabled state feedback will now appear for Attacker drones, Breach Charges, Hibana's X-Kairos, Fuze's Cluster Charge, Thermite's Exothermic Charge, and Zero's ARGUS Cameras. In addition, Claymores and Nomad's Airjabs can now be disabled and will have the proper feedback.


For Crimson Heist, Lion and Finka’s prices go down to 10,000 Renown or 240 R6 Credits. Mozzie and Gridlock’s prices decrease to 15,000 Renown or 360 R6 Credits. Finally, Oryx and Iana’s prices drop to 20,000 Renown or 480 R6 Credits.


Experience two extremes with the seasonal weapon skin Thermal Antipode! With its striking design, you’ll be sure to stand out on the battlefield and turn players cold.
The weapon skin will be released at season launch and is available for purchase throughout the season. Once unlocked, it remains in your inventory indefinitely and can be applied to all available weapons.


These changes will be broken down and explained in detail in our upcoming Designer's Notes blog post.


  • Mute's Signal Disruptor now disables Claymores and Nomad's Airjabs.
  • Added the disabled state feedback that was missing for other affected gadgets.


  • The warning icon that appears when a drone is near one of Mozzie's Pests now pulses at different speeds depending on the drone's proximity to the Pest.


  • Reduced Blackbeard's Rifle-Shield HP to 20 from the previous 50.
  • Reduced Mk17 damage to 40 from the previous 49.


  • Stun Grenades are replacing Frag Grenades.
  • The GONNE-6 is replacing the C75.


  • Stun Grenades are replacing Frag Grenades.
  • The GONNE-6 is replacing the GSH-18.


  • Smoke Grenades are replacing Stun Grenades.


  • Increased CSRX 300 damage to 127 from the previous 122.


  • Improved recoil for G36.

Occasionally, life brings us a gift. Something magical and special that flutters into our world only to fade away in the distance, never to be seen again.
But not this time! We’re bringing back the fan-favorite, wholeheartedly goofy and unapologetically wild revamping of the Rainbowverse with the return of the sparkliest event the game as ever seen – complete with new items to add to the Collection.



It’s the return of the Very Important Plushie! Just like you did two years ago, save the fluffiest of hostages in a colorful mission of pure chaos aboard the toy version of Airplane. Let Blackbeard, Montagne, Smoke and Tachanka back into their favorite uniforms to fight over the VIP Teddy Bear.
Need a reminder on which Operators are deployed for the occasion? Ash, Thermite, Bandit, Frost, Castle, Kapkan, Sledge, Thatcher and our Recruit are once again the handpicked units for such a crucial and – totally – serious task. There’s no room to fail!


The world is more beautiful in colors, and you’ll be the most colorful of all with the return of the Rainbow Is Magic Collection.
We’re bringing “tactical cuteness” back for Blackbeard, Montagne, Sledge and the Lord Tachanka by re-releasing their playful looks as bundles. We’re also adding some new exclusive items, including a whimsical weapon skin for Tachanka. No duplicate drops guaranteed!
This is not the main event of the Season – that one is coming later – but it does not mean that you shouldn’t provide more meme-worthy poses adorned in your fanciest wardrobe pieces for all of us to admire.
Log in while the Game mode is live and receive a free Rainbow Is Magic Collection Pack. Purchase Rainbow is Magic bundles with R6 Credits or Collection Packs with R6 Credits or Renown.
All items in the collection pack have the same chance to drop
