Rainbow Six Siege update 1.57 is now available for players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. According to the official Rainbow Six Siege 1.57 patch notes, the new update has made some adjustments to the team killing ban and brings some changes to Maverick and Clash. In addition, Rainbow Six Siege version 1.57 also contains fixes for issues related stuttering/lag, client bugs, game crashing, and UI bugs.

Previously, a big Operation Grim Sky update was released with two new operators – Clash and Maverick and various other fixes. Unfortunately, since the last patch, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Rainbow Six Siege version 1.57 is expected to fix all these issues. Check out more details below.

Rainbow Six Siege update 1.57 Patch Notes

TEAM KILL BANS

The team killing penalty for a first offense will be adjusted from a kick to a 30-minute ban. Initially, if a player was team killed in Casual, the offender was kicked from the match. The same situation in Ranked would result in a kick as well but also triggered an abandon penalty. This was confusing because it seemed as if the team killing punishment was different between Ranked vs Casual.

The new breakdown is as follows:

  1. First offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes
  2. Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 1 hour
  3. Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
  4. Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
  5. Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.
