Rainbow Six Siege update 1.52 is now rolling out for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. According to the official Rainbow Six Siege 1.52 patch notes, the new update has added various operators changes and adjustments. In addition, Rainbow Six Siege version 1.52 patch also includes stability and performance improvements. A bug where following certain steps, it is possible to peek an enemy without exposing your head is now fixed. Check out more details below.

Previously, a major update was released with various gameplay as well as operators changes. Unfortunately, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Rainbow Six Siege patch 1.52 is expected to fix all these issues.

Rainbow Six Siege 1.52 Update Patch Notes

GAMEPLAY CHANGES

ADVANCED DRONE DEPLOYMENT

Players will now have the option of not being immediately pulled into their drone’s camera after deploying it.

  • Standard: Will pull players into drone view immediately following deployment of their drone.
  • Advanced: Players will need to manually enter the drone’s camera after deployment.

OBSERVATION TOOL CYCLING

Players will now be able to select their preference for rotating through the Observation Tool groups, as well as cycle through the first and last Defender cameras.

Following the implementation of the new Observation Tool system, the game devs have seen players express that they have two different expectations for how the cycling of the Observation Tools should function. Some players would like to see the “next tool” key bind stay within the same group, while others would like to see it cycle to the next grouping.

RESET KEY BINDINGS (PC)

The enter Observation Tool key bind can be found in the Operator Control section, and the Exit Observation Tool key can be found in the Observation Tool Control. With the introduction of the new Observation Tool System, Rainbow Six Siege update 1.52 split the key bindings section into three groups, General, Operator Control, Observation Tool Control. Enter/Exit Observation Tool was not split between Operator and Observation Tool controls, which led to that key bind not responding as expected.
