What does Rainbow Six Siege Y7S1.1 patch include?

Ubisoft's patch aims at improving the players' in-game experience, providing a solution to some minor audio and gameplay issues.

Audio issues

The patch deploys a fix to some inconsistencies experienced in operators' footsteps and gunfire. The audio quality will also improve before a game crashes.

Team Deathmatch

The patch also includes various tweaks to the game's new mode Team Deathmatch. One of the problems addressed is the respawn timer, which sometimes was longer than the visible countdown.

It also includes a fix to player cards only being visible during the first death, and a fix to attackers and defenders from the same team having louder sound effects (SFX) in-game.

General fixes

General fixes include the launch of the Streamer Charm "Jynxi," which was not launched alongside the other charms of its type.

It also includes various operator tweaks, such as some operators being able to pop up Mira's Black Windows by meleeing the canister from the opaque side of the wall. Other operators that will experience some fixes to small problems are Amaru and Azami, whose Kiba Barriers didn't destroy damaged barricades in certain situations.

All of these changes, among many other solutions to small in-game issues, can be found in Ubisoft's website.
