Rainbow Six Y6S2.1 patch notes: Thunderbird and Favela bug fixes, more

Ubisoft has released the first patch following the Y6S2 update, with a focus on fixing numerous bugs and some quality of life changes.

As with every big Rainbow Six Siege patch, the Y6S2 North Star update has brought a slew of new content into the game, including a new operator, Thunderbird, balance changes, and a complete rework of one of the least popular competitive maps, Favela.

Naturally, with huge updates, some bugs and issues are bound to happen, but Ubisoft reacted quickly and the Y6S2.1 patch is here to fix the most important issues and bugs following the release of the North Star update.
