Rainbow Six Siege Version 1.72 Patch Details


Rainbow Six Siege version 1.72 (Y4S3.1) released on PS4 and Xbox One. According to the official Rainbow Six Siege update 1.72 patch notes, the latest update brings changes to the Reverse Friendly Fire system with RFF Squad Management, and a change to how Goyo (and Capitao’s) fire interacts with Hostage under the RFF system. Apart from this, today’s R6 update 1.72 also includes further improvements to the RFF system to moderate griefing teammates.

Previously, a big Operation Ember Rise update was released with update two operators – Amaru and Goyo and reworked Kanal map. The last update also added the new Champions rank, Unranked playlist, new Operators menu, changes to the Shop interface and Player VS AI.

Unfortunately, since the last update, many players are still experiencing several issues when trying to play the game online. Today’s R6 update 1.72 is expected to fix a few of these issues.


Rainbow Six Siege Version 1.72 patch notes




Hostage has evolved.

  • Hostage is now immune to fire (both Goyo’s Volcan and Capitao)
  • To prevent incidences of team griefing towards Goyo under the RFF system, we’ve decided to make hostage immune to fire.


  • We have now expanded the RFF system to squads. If players of the same squad damage or TK other team members, RFF will be activated for all members of that squad.
