Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege, the latest in the long running Tom Clancy branded series, has seen a huge amount of change since its release. The game had a bit of a bumpy start, but continued introducing additions and fixes. That, entering into its 4th year now of seasonal updates, has helped to change the game significantly since release. The newest patch, S4 1.3, is out now, and it comes with a huge catalog of changes, especially to operator Lion, who sees a big nerf.

Lion is the biggest change, but there’s various alterations to other operators, including Capitao, Nomad, Ying, and others. Along with the various tweaks to operator balance, there’s also various gameplay issues that are fixed, like some sound glitches, clipping through walls in certain maps, collision boxes, and a lot more.

Rainbow Six Siege is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out a partial list of the patch notes below. For the full, massive list of notes, check out the game’s website.
