Previously, Ubisoft released a big Burnt Horizon Season update was released with two new Operators – Gridlock and Mozzie, new map – Outback, newcomer playlist and more.

Rainbow Six Siege (R6) update 1.65 Patch Notes



  • Reduced the ability warning to 1.5 seconds (from 3 seconds).
  • Reduced the scanning to 2 seconds (from 4 seconds).
  • R6 update 1.65 replaced the scan outline by a red ping debuff.
  • Increased the number of charges to 3 (from 2 charges).
  • Rainbow Six Siege update 1.65 reduced the ability cooldown to 15 seconds (from 27 seconds).
  • Vigil’s ability ERC–7’s cloak makes him immune to Lion’s scan.


  • Dart fire damage per tick reduced to 12 (from 19/tick).
  • Dart fire AOE size increased and now takes 2 seconds to reach max size.
  • Arrows now follow a straight trajectory until 10 meters. Past 10 meters, there is an arrow trajectory falloff due to gravity.

Adjustments to his AOE damage will now emphasize skill and not blind luck.

Enjoy the breather!

  • Rainbow Six Siege 1.65 added idle SFX to Nomad’s Airjab once deployed to act as warning feedback for gadget position when active Airjabs are nearby.
  • Replaced Claymore with 3x Stun Grenades in Nomad’s loadout.

 Listen to the wind, it talks.
