Rainbow Six Siege Gets 5.3 Update

Rainbow Six Siege has done pretty well for itself, but there have been plenty of bugs since day one. Although this patch won’t fix everything, the dev team has certainly addressed a lot of issues. While a lot of the fixes listed below are important, I and most Siege players are waiting and begging for higher-tick servers so that we can consistently respond fast enough. However, it’s still promising that the Siege dev team got a patch this significant out right after the holidays. Below are the patch notes, and you’ll be able to play on the new patch on January 11.

Most of the patch contains bug fixes, but there is a new feature. It’s a bit minor, but you can now pause in a custom lobby during the operator selection phase (just in case you or one of your friends needs to go to the bathroom, I suppose.)
