Get the rundown on everything you need to know about the latest Rainbow Six Siege patch.
R6 Siege Y6S3.3 patch notes: All Operator buffs and nerfs

Rainbow Six: Siege fans can now get their hands on the latest Y6S3.3 patch, which brings a plethora of balance changes to Operators amongst other quality of life changes and bug fixes.

Some of the biggest changes include a buff to Castle's armour panels, which go from three to four, however, to counter-act that, the number of punches required to destroy them has been reduced to nine (previously 12).

Kapkan has also undergone massive changes, with the trap Operator now able to put multiple traps at doors or windows when previously he was restricted to only one per frame.
