Other Improvements in Rainbow Six Siege 1.44

Temporal Filtering

The T-AA has been fully implemented. As part of this, the Resolution Scaling and Sharpness Factor slide bars are in the Options menu. With render scaling, you will be able to customize the ratio between render resolution and display resolution, which will allow you to maintain your target framerate.

Bomb UI Changes

Rainbow Six Siege update 1.44 changed the player markers for players that are interacting with the Defuser. When a teammate is interacting with the Defuser, a new animation icon appears on the player. If your teammate is in the process of disabling the Defuser, you will also notice a new animated icon on that player. The new animated icon should make it easier to identify which teammate is currently interacting with the Defuser.

Additionally, once the teammate plants the Defuser, the progress of the Defuser replaces the round timer.

These are the first steps we are taking towards improving the Bomb game mode, and we will have more information about our next steps at the Six Invitational!

Caster Camera improvements

Rainbow Six Siege 1.44 added some adjustments to the Caster Camera. These adjustments will improve the viewer experience for those watching the spectator camera, but also provide them with more information in a more digestible format.
