Team Killers Won’t Be Perma-Banned in Rainbow Six Siege

One issue that all multiplayer shooter games have is teamkillers. Those who just can’t resist killing their own teammates. Each developer has its own way to deal with them but all deal with such players with a firm hand.

Ubisoft has released a new Rainbow Six Siege update that will ban players instantly after a team kill. If you kill a teammate for the first time, there is 30 minutes ban. Each time the duration of the ban increases, the longest being a week-long ban on your fifth offense.

Here are the rest of the patch notes.
