Another round of balancing has hit Rainbow Six Siege, with the Y6S3.3 update giving some Operators a much-needed buff, but some weapons have also been hit by nerfs. Here’s everything you need to know about the update, including full patch notes.

Operators are the focus of Rainbow Six Siege’s Y6S3.3 update, with Clash getting a new weapon, Kapkan getting a healthy buff, and Castle getting even more Armor Panels at his disposal. On top of that, there are some impactful weapon nerfs too.

Here’s everything you need to know about Rainbow Six Siege’s Y6S3.3 update.

Rainbow Six Siege Y6S3.3 Operator buffs & nerfs

Kapkan in Rainbow Six Siege

Rainbow Six Siege’s Y6S3.3 update has given some healthy changes to Castle, Clash, Kapkan, Melusi, Oryx, and Wamai. The majority of these Operator balance changes are to buff lesser-used Operators, but they’ve also changed up Melusi to limit her combat effectiveness and focus on her intel side.

Devs explained that Clash’s P-10C only had a pick rate of 3%, so they took it away and gave her the Super Shorty, a small pump-action Shotgun, instead.

Kapkan’s Entry Denial Devices are powerful tools, but now there’s no limit to how many can be stacked on an entrance. Players can cover a doorway in these trip mines, which changes them from a “mild inconvenience to a full frag real quick.”

Castle’s Armor Panels are effective, but easier to counter. To give players more options, Ubisoft have increased the amount from three to four. But, it now takes a couple fewer melee hits to destroy one.

Check out the full patch notes below for the rest of the Operator changes.

Rainbow Six Siege Mx4 storm recoil nerf comparison

A couple of powerful weapons have been nerfed in the Y6S3.3 update, with the Mx4 Storm and P10 Roni getting more recoil among other changes. But, players now have more Hard Breach Charges at their disposal.

The Mx4 Storm has had its recoil increased, but the P10 Roni got hit the hardest. Its initial shots will now be much harder to control, and its magazine size has been reduced so that players will “have less bullets to fall back on.”

But, players can now access another Hard Breach Charge to encourage players to use it more and find more creative uses for it.

Twitch Prime Gaming packs are free rewards offered to any FIFA 22 Ultimate Team player with a Twitch account and a valid Amazon Prime Membership.

Players who have subscribed to Amazon Prime automatically have access to Prime Gaming, meaning they qualify for Twitch Prime Gaming packs.

EA has teamed up with the two giant companies to offer players rewards throughout the year, in the form of free packs, containing untradeable cards and player picks.

The rewards are dropped monthly throughout the season, so be sure to keep an eye on EA’s social media for the latest releases.

Apex Legends update 1.96 patch notes

The Apex Legends 1.96 update is here in Season 13 of the battle royale, and players are wondering what the patch has changed.

Apex Legends Season 13 is well underway and on May 23 the battle royale received a new update. Here are the patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.96 update.

Apex Legends Season 13 introduced a lot of change and new content such as Newcastle and the reworked ranked system.

Unfortunately, those on consoles have been having a tough time in the Ranked Leagues as the servers have been unstable with DDoS’ers crashing matches and ruining the experience.

As well as this, Newcastle’s Ultimate caused a bug with Wraith’s Phase, but luckily May 23 brought the 1.96 update to address the issue.

Apex Legends 1.96 update patch notes

The Apex Legends 1.96 update is approximately 400MB on PC and 600MB on consoles. 

Currently, there are no official patch notes from Respawn showing what the 1.96 update has done for the game. Having said that, we do have an idea based on known issues that are now fixed and a tweet from a dev.

Newcastle’s introduction in Season 13 brought a couple of issues, including an exploit for his own Ultimate ability. When Newcastle’s Castle Wall is placed, enemies that try to climb the walls are stunned and damaged by electricity.

Players noticed that this would cause damage to Wraith when she was in her Tactical ability, which is meant to make her invulnerable to all damage. This May 23 update has now fixed this issue according to a Tweet made by RSPN_Pav.

Not much else is known about the patch, but many suspect that it was simply just a hotfix to address this issue with Wraith. There are currently some bad server issues with players on consoles, as there is an exploit that some are using to crash servers.

Hopefully, this can be fixed as soon as possible, as it is causing massive issues for players in Ranked. We’ll be sure to update you on any new information on Apex Legends as it’s released.
