R6 Siege update 1.97 patch notes (Y5S3.3.1) released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One players. The official R6 1.97 patch notes are also now released by the game developers. The latest update resolves various issues and added stability fixes. Apart from this, R6 Siege version 1.97 also brings overall gameplay improvements.
Unfortunately, players are still experiencing several issues when trying to play the game online. Today’s R6 Siege version 1.97 will fix a few of these issues.
Tachanka’s RP-46 Degtyaryov turret has been replaced with the Shumikha Laucher.
This launcher shoots grenades that generate areas of fire 1 second after the first bounce.
The Shumikha Launcher is equipped with a fixed 5-grenade magazine. Tachanka has a total of 10 grenades available. Grenades are inserted one by one.
The DP27 LMG is now available as a primary weapon option for Tachanka and will be replacing the SASG-12.
This weapon allows players to open rotations on soft walls and destroy hatches.
Due to unavoidable constraints, voice lines have been recorded with a new voice actor for Tachanka upon the release of his rework. We thank Anatoly Zinoviev for his past work as Tachanka’s voice actor and for the passion he was able to provide to both the role and to the community.
Addressed several UI and store visuals with the Slava Korolyu Elite items and icons.
Fixed an issue where tachanka’s Elite fire VFX from the MVP dance are present on his model in multiple maps.
Addressed a bug where Frag bounce sound can sometimes play unintentionally.
Fixed an issue where tachanka’s DP27 LMG currently has the full penetration attribute.
Addressed a bug where DP27 does 48 damage instead of 49.
