Rainbow Six Siege's next update will increase punishments for players who purposely kill teammates – making it harder for them to hurt anyone on their teams but themselves for multiple games.

Siege already has a system whereby players who do enough damage to teammates (and are reported for griefing) are given a "reverse friendly fire" status, seeing damage dealt to friendlies reflected back at them. This effect will soon apply to several of the griefer's games going forward.

As reported by PC Gamer, the Operation Vector Glare June 7 update will include the first phase of developer Ubisoft Montréal's reputation system, which targets players who repeatedly damage teammates. Branded as "pre-emptive reverse friendly fire" by director Alex Karpazis, griefers will have reverse friendly fire applied for up to 20 games, or until they play several matches without injuring teammates.

In the Rainbow Six 3 on OG XBox, I'd kill my entire team off the jump, then go camp in a low traffic area corner of the map and listen to everyone swear at me for duration of the match whilst laughing my ass off.

Where else can you get that type of entertainment?

This game is so woke I’m surprised people still
play it. It is a shooter to boot.
Why is it woke? Genuine question, not trolling. I played it extensively like 5 years ago and it was amazing back then, then I sold my Xbox, and later on when I tried again I was so bad I gave up.

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
There’s a lot wrong with siege it only works because of people still playing it Vegas 3 could walk into the door and magic would happen, they have to figure out terrorist hunt, fix the too-much cosmetics, and stop the forcing you to play close quarters only.

Woke.
Rainbow Six Siege?
You are surprised people are still playing it?

Thats like the most out of touch thing ive read in a long while.


R6S has been in the top 10 most played basically since launch.
Beyond Fortnite, GTAV and Minecraft its probably the most consistently active game since the PS4/XB1 launched.
 
Point in having friendly fire on?

To prevent spam fire, to force folks to make more tactical choices. Not simply allowing players to toss grenades and blow up everything in site just because. The game has destruction and walls you can shoot through, without friendly fire attackers could simply just spray and pray every single room and just win.

You also don't just get booted for killing a player, the penalty only kicks in if you do it too much. Accidents happen and the game doesn't punish you for that.
