Team killers have always been an issue with Rainbow Six Siege since the game's launch. While Ubisoft solved the problem by detecting and kicking players that were team killing, the upcoming update will introduce more severe punishments.

According to Ubisoft, players that start killing teammates will be banned from matchmaking for a set amount of time that can go from a few minutes to a week. After multiple offenses, Ubisoft will consider to permanently ban these players.

Here's how this system will work:

  • First offence "“ Casual- Kicked from match. Ranked- Banned for 15 minutes, 50% renown penalty for 30 minutes.
  • Second offence "“ Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes.
  • Third offence "“ Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
  • Fourth offence "“ Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
  • Fifth offence "“ Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.

In addition to a solution to team killing, update 3.4 also brings several gameplay changes and fixes. One of the big changes is a complete re-balance for Pulse, one of the game's operators.

Here's the patch notes:
