Rainbow Six Siege 'crouch spamming' fix in the works
Rainbow Six Siege's growing "crouch and lean spamming" tactic will soon be addressed.
Ubisoft has outlined plans to address "crouch spamming" and "lean spamming" in its hit tactical shooter, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Recently dominating higher-level play, the developer has committed to resolving the issue, currently prototyping a solution.
The controversial tactic has gained traction in recent months, using the game's couch and lean mechanics to evade incoming fire. Although technically permitted, the move detracts from the core philosophies of Rainbow Six Siege's tactical combat. This follows the game's previous "drop-shotting" problem, fixed with the rollout of last year's Operation Para Bellum.
Community Manager for Rainbow Six Siege, UbiNoty, offered a formal statement on its plans to address the tactics, via Reddit.
With Ubisoft now preparing its content offerings for Rainbow Six Siege Year 4, expect more details on the proposed system in the months ahead.
In the meantime, Ubisoft recently kicked off its "Road to Six Invitational" event, packing a new in-game playlist and the cosmetic "2019 Collection."
