Rainbow Six Siege: Patch 1.20 hat einen Termin
Rainbow Six Siege hat Licht und Schattenseiten. Dies ging zumindest in einem Gespräch in den Kommentaren auf unserer Seite hervor. Nun gibt es frohe Kunde! Denn der Patch 1.20 hat nun endlich einen festen Termin. So soll der Patch bereits in der nächsten Woche für PS4 und Xbox One erscheinen.



In order to have a clear understanding of where issues originate from and how fast our responses to problems could be we want to highlight the 3 main components that are responsible for delivering the Rainbow Six|Siege experience.

  • Game client (GC): It is your copy of the game that you have installed on your PC or Console (Updating it requires a Title Update).
  • Dedicated game servers (DGS): It’s a dedicated game server running on data centers distributed around the world to guarantee the best experience, this is where your PVP (Casual and Ranked) game is running. Only 10 players connect at a given moment to a given Game Server. Depending on the severity of the fix we can update it seamlessly or with a maintenance.
  • Online Backend (Backend): This is where the bulk of our online services run i.e. (Matchmaking, Ranking … etc), this is a centralized set of servers that all users are connected to, and acts as the backbone for all of our services. It is running on specialized hardware and software like databases. This is the part that gets impacted the most by the load from of users in peak hours. It also can be updated seamlessly or with a maintenance.

High Priority Issues

Issue Name: Error 2-0x00000041

  • Priority: 1
  • Platform impacted: All platforms
  • Error description: The error can be caused by multiple malfunctions of the different networked systems that is between the game client and our servers. One of the causes that was identified is an unexpected behavior caused by some home router and ISP configurations making the error more recurrent. (Impacts GC and DGS)
  • Issue Fix State: In progress
  • Upcoming Fixes & Timing:
    • Extending connection timeout periods to increase the robustness and react better to drops in internet quality of service. (Update 1.2 on PC/Consoles)
    • Being resistant to router changing outgoing port between rounds of gameplay so the connection doesn’t drop. (Update 1.2 on PC, Update 1.3 on Consoles)
    • We will be investigating the other causes/fixes.

Issue Name: Loading Screen „Freeze“ (Smoke Background)

  • Priority: 1
  • Platform impacted: All platforms
  • Error description: The user may remain stuck in an infinite loading screen when joining a session. The issue is mainly caused by waiting for state synchronization between our backend, the servers, and the game client.
  • We have identified two issues that we are working on:
    • Case 1: Players stuck on a loading screen while hearing the game running. The situation resolves itself when the next round starts. (Impacts GC)
    • Case 2: Players join a game that is stuck in a state that can take a very long time to finish. This is caused by communication issues between the backend and the DGS.
  • Issue Fix State: In progress
  • Upcoming Fixes & Timing:
    • We have identified the cause of Case 1 and we have a fix in place for Update 1.2 on PC/Console.
    • We have identified another reproduction cause for Case 2 and it is currently under investigation.

Issue Name: Game Exploit: Defenders Allowed To Go Outside During Prep Phase (Red Wall)

  • Priority: 1
  • Platform impacted: All platforms
  • Error description: When doing specific actions, players can bypass the red wall that is intended to prevent the defenders from going outside during prep phase. (Impacts GC and DGS)

  • Upcoming Fixes & Timing: Update 1.3

Issue Name: Extended Matchmaking Connection Time

  • Priority: 1
  • Platform impacted: All platforms

  • Upcoming Fixes & Timing: TBD

Issue Name: Failed Data Synchronization

  • Priority: 1
  • Platform impacted: All platforms
  • Error description:
    • Users get stuck on synchronizing data at the end of a round.
    • 0 Renown issue: Players do not see the „visual cue“ when awarded with their Renown or, in some cases, do not receive Renown at all.
    • This happens due to an error in the connection between our DGS and our backend. We are trying to isolate the issue and deploy a fix as soon as possible.
  • Issue Fix State: Under investigation
  • Upcoming Fixes & Timing: TBD

Issue Name: Party of 4 Matchmaking

  • Priority: 2
  • Platform impacted: All platforms
  • Error description: Some users are experiencing much longer matchmaking queue times if they try to find a match with a group of 4 players. This is caused by our matchmaking algorithm, and we are working on a fix that will be deployed in our backend.

[Multiplayer] Long Matchmaking Times / Incomplete Teams [Workaround]

  • After playing a match, if you find yourself in an incomplete team that does not fill for more than two minutes, please go back to the main menu and queue again for multiplayer.

[Multiplayer] Error on Creating Squad [Resolved]

  • Some users encounter error 2-0x00000048 when sending a friend request followed by a game invite. If the impacted users exits the squad, cancels the request, and restarts the game, this may solve the issue.

[Multiplayer] Stuck in Loading Screen [Workaround]

  • Players have reported that they get stuck in the pre-match loading screen. If the last player to join in progress leaves the game, this corrects the issue.

[Multiplayer] Squadmates left at menu when joining a match [Workaround]

  • If a squad of 3 or more people joins a game, but a teammate (from that squad) leaves, another player will be found via Join In Progress. When the match is over if you stop the new search to add your friend back to your squad and then search again for a match, your squad will be split. Some member sof the squad will be left in the main menu, and the rest are pulled into the match. This will happen even if new players join the squad.

    Workaround: All affected players that were in that squad must restart the game.

[Multiplayer] Custom Match Invites / No Notification [Workaround]

  • If a user enters a custom match set to invite only with a 5 player squad, and more invites sent out will not display a notification for the recipient.

    Workaround: Enter the Custom Match with a 4 player squad, and invite the rest of the players.

[Multiplayer] Custom Match JIP / Voice Comms [Reported]

  • If an user joins in progress in an outgoing session will notice that he cannot hear the other teammates using headsets although the other players can hear what he is saying.

[Multiplayer] Custom Match / Voice Comms [Workaround]

  • When the owner of a custom game attempts to use the voice chat option set to open to all and joins with another users on the created playlist will notice that this option has no functionality and they cannot hear each other if they are in different teams.

[Multiplayer] Connection Problem / Ranked Penalty / No Prompt [Reported]

  • Some users may not be prompted to reconnect to a PvP Ranked match upon restarting the game client.

[Multiplayer] Connection Problem / Multiplayer Unavailable [Intended]

  • Some users are only able to play situations. This occurs when the game is launched before the download/installation is complete. It will complete in the background, and once that occurs, you will be able to play multiplayer matches.

[Installation] Physical Copy / Uplay Downloads Full Game [Resolved]

  • Users who purchased a physical copy of the game are still being asked to download the complete game by the Uplay client. This is not intended behavior. We are working to correct the issue, but in the mean time we have a workaround for you here.


[Performance] Graphics / AMD [Workaround]

[Performance] NVidia FPS Drops and Inability to Start Game [Resolved]

  • Some users are reporting abnormally low FPS, and an inability to start the game with some NVidia + Windows 10 configurations. We are currently investigating the root cause. In the meantime, some users have reported a positive outcome by setting the CPU clock speed to default in the bios, and restarting their system.

Please wait a few minutes as there is someteimes a delay in your purchased item being applied to your account. If you do not see it, please contact us at here so that we can collect more information. Additionally, if you purchase a weapon skin from the shop, it will not be automatically applied to that weapon. You will need to go into your weapon attachments menu and manually add the skin to that weapon.

[Bug/Glitch] Loadout Reset [Reported]

  • Upon logging in, some players will see that their Operator loadout and Options settings have been reset. You will not need to repurchase any attachments, you will only need to reapply them to your weapon.

[Bug/Glitch] Glaz Scope [Workaround]

[Bug/Glitch] Getting stuck on loading screen with character silhouettes[Workaround]

  • We are aware that, at times, the drone will fall through the map. We are investigating the cause.

[Bug/Glitch] Twitch does no damage after being revived [Reported]
