Ubisoft has pushed a hotfix for Rainbow Six Siege that requires PC players to have a friend in one in all a lobby’s squads earlier than becoming a member of. The repair is supposed to shut down an exploit that allowed hackers to power their manner into lobbies the place they weren’t welcome.

This newest hotfix to Ubisoft’s multiplayer game solely applies to players on PC in the meanwhile. “Now players can only join games in which they have a friend already in that squad (whether it be the squad host, or someone else already in that party)”, Ubisoft tweeted immediately from the official Rainbow Six Siege twitter account.

“Players can no longer use an exploit to force themselves into squads with other players”, the tweet concludes. The lobby hacking subject has come to gentle primarily due to Siege streamers, who have in the previous week discovered themselves seeing unfamiliar players barging into their pre-game lobbies and refusing to go away. FPL players have encountered these invaders as nicely, so it’s not shocking that Ubisoft has moved swiftly to handle the difficulty.

The repair shouldn’t trigger too many points for regular players – in the event you’re taking part in with your folks, you’re possible grouped up in a group as it’s. But there’s the potential for some annoyance in some circumstances.

Read up on the most recent season, Rainbow Six Siege Neon Dawn, to stand up to velocity on the brand new operators, devices, and map modifications.
