Rainbow Six Siege Y8S2.3 Patch Notes and More

Ubisoft has just released the Y8S2.3 update for Rainbow Six Siege on all platforms, introducing key changes to various operators and fixing several bugs to enhance gameplay. The download size of the patch varies for each platform, with the largest being 1.65GB for PS4 users, while Ubisoft Connect and Steam require 1.12GB and 1.5GB, respectively.

Operator balances form the crux of this update, with significant changes to Vigil, Nøkk, Thorn, and Oryx. Vigil and Nøkk see a shared glitching behavior, with particular adjustments to their interaction with other operators’ gadgets. Nøkk’s HEL gadget ability no longer reduces movement sounds, and its duration has been extended to 20 seconds. Thorn receives an added 1.5x sight to the UZK50GI, while Oryx benefits from a 30% increase in hatch climb speed.

Among the bug fixes, one noteworthy adjustment is the resolution of the missing unlimited ammo in the Snipers Arcade for players joining a match in progress. Other corrections pertain to device detection issues, Battle Pass map flashes, and errors in accepting Squad invites.

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.
