Rainbow Six Siege’s latest patch brings in a wealth of bug fixes, including a fix for the knife peek exploit which has been an issue following Operation Crimson Heist.
In ranked modes for Siege following Crimson Heist’s release, many players noted how using the knife could allow them to peek around corners — meaning they could get an advantage without revealing a huge part of their body.
Thankfully, Ubisoft has addressed the issue in update Y6S1.1, which has started to roll out on PC. It will arrive on consoles at a later unspecified date.
The update also brings in preferences for Streamer mode in the options menu, which allows streamers to hide their region and latency info to reduce stream sniping.
You can check out the full list of additions below.
