New Rainbow Six Siege Hotfix Prevents Hackers From Entering Private Lobbies

Aren’t you tired of random people forcing their way into your private Rainbow Six Siege lobby and refusing to leave? It doesn’t help that there’s no way to kick squad members you don’t want to play with. Ubisoft has now released a PC hotfix in response to a spike of this intrusive lobby joining.

This hotfix will prevent random hackers from joining your private lobby and wreaking havoc and confusion. The hotfix has made it so that anyone seeking to join a private lobby will be required to have at least one friend already in said lobby, whether they’ve hosted it, or just joined it.

“To fix an exploit where players could join lobbies uninvited, we have released a hotfix that will require PC players to have at least one friend already in the squad. Thank you for all your patience!” explained the Rainbow Six Siege official Twitter account.

“To clarify, now players can only join games in which they have a friend already in that squad (whether it be the squad host, or someone else already in that party). Players can no longer use an exploit to force themselves into squads with other players,” it elaborated in another tweet.

It must be noted that this hotfix is only for PC players. This won’t be a problem if you have a regular squad to play with. But players relying on matchmaking to play online will temporarily be prevented.

Ubisoft is currently in the process of ending Year 5 of Rainbow Six Siege with Operation Neon Dawn. This Operation adds Thai operator Aruni into the game as a Defender. She comes equipped with the Surya Gate; “Once in place the gate projects a laser array capable of detecting anyone moving through it. When an intruder is detected, energy output to the laser increases, causing second- and third-degree burns,” said the official patch notes.

Rainbow Six Siege is also available on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S, with free upgrades. The next-gen version of the game is playable in standard or 4K with 120 FPS through rendering scaling, and cost the same as the last-gen version. Once players avail of their free generational upgrade, they’ll be able to transfer their progress over as well. Not just that, but they’ll be able to cross-play between both generations of their respective consoles.
