In a post on the official Ubisoft Rainbow Six Blog, the company revealed that it has updated it’s Code of Conduct policy in regards to online gameplay. Furthermore, they have stated that they will permanently ban people who cheat in order to win via codes or special mods. You can read their statement below:
“CODE OF CONDUCT UPDATE: PERMANENT BAN FOR FIRST OFFENSE CHEATERS
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.”
Ubisoft is also looking into Anti-Cheating software to help keep the cheaters away, and they will continue to support the fair playing community for as long as it takes to keep the cheating players out.
