Rainbow Six Siege players have looked under the hood of the game to try and make sense of the new anti-cheat update.
The update was rolled out by Ubisoft on November 8th, and the developer listed the included features on the game’s official website. The main feature was a new QB initiative that has been in development for several months. “While we cannot share any details of the update to protect its integrity,” Ubisoft wrote, “we are confident in the solution we were able to implement.”
The QB feature was rolled back yesterday so Ubisoft can work on fixes for it. Over the eight days that the feature has been live, players have been looking through the files to try and understand how the measure works.
Twitter account @AntiCheatPD, which aims to “detect and disrupt cheating vendors,” suggested the update create a new build of the game every two hours, based on discussions on a game hacking forum. data digger @ScriptLeaksR6 suggested that several different builds of the game were live at the same time that could communicate with each other. Any of these methods would give scammers a headache as they would effectively increase the time and effort it would take them to exploit the various builds.
Amid the anti-cheat update, Rainbow Six Siege is gearing up for the next season of content to be unveiled on November 21st. That was recently announced
