Code of Conduct Update: Permanent Ban for First Offense Cheaters
07/06/2016 10:00 AM
Today we are introducing a permanent ban on first offense for cheating or hacking in Rainbow Six Siege.
The presence of cheating in the game is something we take very seriously, and is a priority on the development team. This update is one step among many that we are working on to better engage with the community on this issue.
Updated Code of Conduct Section:
Cheating/Modding/Hacking: Player is running a modified or otherwise unauthorized version of the game client or a third party software which provides any sort of unfair advantage (wallhacks, aimhacks…) or causing detriment to other players’ experience: Maximum penalty is permanent ban on first offense.
For more information on this update to the Code of Conduct, and how Permanent Bans will work, please see this FAQ.
Being an online competitive game and considering Rainbow Six Siege's unique features of destructibility and intel gathering, certain challenges come with community reporting. For example, a player getting a head shot through a wall is quite commonplace. This has potential to create a perception that someone is cheating.
While this is sometimes the case, we are working hard to differentiate reports of players who are coordinating with their team for information (how the game is meant to be played), and from someone who is maliciously altering the experience with third party software.
If you do encounter a cheater in the game, you can report them via the in-game report button, or submit their information to Ubisoft Support.
Additional Anti-Cheat Options
We are currently assessing and testing several client-side anti-cheat options in addition to FairFight and can confirm that we'll be implementing one in the future. We will share additional information as soon as we are ready.
We will be continuing to support the community on this issue, and we want to assure you that if a player is using cheating software, they are not welcome in Rainbow Six Siege.
