The Hive Launcher is one of the more exciting parts of Grim’s arsenal as the player can now release a swarm of bots that can track the location of opponents who walk through it. Also new to the game this season is the newest gadget, the Impact EMP Grenade.

Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Season 3: Brutal Swarm Patch Notes

Rainbow Six Siege


  • Vertical recoil has been reviewed on all weapons and adjusted to match the weapon’s expected power level.
  • Vertical and horizontal recoil intensity increases during sustained fire bursts. The longer the burst, the stronger the recoil.
  • Limits on weapons with strong recoil have mostly stayed the same.
  • LMGs and weapons with high-capacity magazines now have a 4th stage of recoil that’s harder to control.
  • Weapons have more attachment options. This feature will be available for both Console and PC.

Recoil Changes on Console:

In the past, console recoil was adjusted based on PC values and modified for console. With this approach, console recoil values can be adjusted separately from PC allowing us to focus on the needs of console more accurately.


  • All players will have a grace period so they can adapt to the new system.
  • After the grace period is over, players who’ve sent too many hateful or abusive text chats will get an active penalty for 30 matches.

New Permanent Map: Stadium 2021

Stadium Bravo is a combination of Border and Coastline. The well-balanced sites and features are color coded and contain less clutter, making it feel different, and yet familiar.
