Rainbow Six Siege Anti-Cheat Status Update May 2023

Ubisoft has just released its latest Anti-Cheat Status Update for Rainbow Six Siege. As part of their ongoing commitment to fair and competitive gameplay, Ubisoft has been continually enforcing BattlEye and Data Bans. Their update includes the most recent numbers for these bans, correcting totals from previous months due to a database update. Ubisoft hasn’t disclosed specific numbers in this update, but their steadfast dedication to battling cheats remains clear.

Ubisoft hasn’t been idle since their last update. They’ve bolstered the game’s security, making the development of cheats more difficult and tedious. While many of these improvements aren’t immediately noticeable to players, they are crucial for maintaining game balance and ensuring fair play.

Ubisoft temporarily disabled the MMR Rollback system following the Y8S1 release due to potential bugs. However, the developers have since resolved these issues, and the system is now up and running again. This feature is a crucial part of maintaining competitive integrity in Rainbow Six Siege.

The Y8S1.2 update saw the successful implementation of Mousetrap, a new system designed to detect input spoofing on consoles. While Ubisoft is proud of this achievement, they acknowledge the importance of continuously monitoring and adjusting this system as needed. Below you can find the details, as revealed by Ubisoft.


For an overview on bans, we bring our latest BattlEye and Data Ban numbers, including data for 2023.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
