Hitbox Rework

  • Rainbow Six Siege update 2.2.1 for PS4 and Xbox One will bring redesign of the hitboxes for all operators. The new design will make it so the hitbox only includes what you would think of as the human body.

This change will impact present and future operators, and will allow for a full artistic freedom on character models and customization without a heavy impact on gameplay balancing.

New Post-Match and Pre-Match Squad Flow

  • Once a match has completed, players will be presented with new menu options that allow you to choose when to re-enter the matchmaking flow from the After Action Report (AAR) screen. This also works if you’re in a party. The squad leader can choose when the squad enters matchmaking, re-enters the matchmaking flow from the AAR screen, propose a rematch to the other team, or return to the main menu. From a squad member’s perspective, they will have the option to leave the squad and matchmaking loop.

Keep Playing as Team Option

  • With Rainbow Six Siege update 2.2.1 for PS4 and Xbox One, you will not be immediately re-queued for a match, as the default option will send you back to the main menu screen.
