Rainbow Six Siege is a great game from Ubisoft. It received a positive response from the critics since its launch in December 2015. Recently, Ubisoft rolled out the “Operation Red Crow” update for Rainbow Six Siege and after that, PS4 players aren’t enjoying the game.
Rainbow Six Siege Freezing on the PS4 After the Latest Update
Many users on the Operation Red Crow update’s general discussion Reddit post are reporting performance issues on the PlayStation 4. People are reporting that the game is freezing for some seconds during the gameplay.
A majority of players are saying that the lag is caused by Hibana’s X-KAIROS gadget. When Hibana’s explosive pallet-launcher “X-KAIROS” is equipped, the game freezes for a few seconds. This issue doesn’t affect everyone on the server, meaning if you get the freeze, you’ll be at a disadvantage and someone can easily kill you while you’re frozen.
“I experienced it 5 times in a row, both on terrorist hunt, casual and ranked.”
– Says Reddit user Nakl0v.
Few players are also reporting the game completely crashing on the PS4:
“I’m also getting this as well. Random freezes for a few seconds.
Also, the game just crashed and kicked me back to the PS4 dashboard.”
– Says Reddit user Krotanix.
Also, some other players are saying that the game can also freeze for a long time, “around 10 seconds”. This is horrible during an online match, as the other player can easily kill you in 2-3 seconds. Anyways, Ubisoft is investigating the issue and it will be fixed soon.
We are currently investigating this issue, thank you very much
