Rainbow Six: Siege is getting Operation Burnt Horizon tomorrow as an update to the game, adding all of the content we detailed in our preview from last month, but Ubisoft has also added some extra details as an addendum to the patch notes, addressing one big issue - lean spamming.
Before this patch the camera placement while leaning meant players could shoot without being fully exposed, but to counteract this Ubisoft has shifted the camera to the center of the head rather than the far side leaning outwards, as you can see in the diagram below, which should make poking your head out slightly riskier and more realistic.
We also know that this update will be larger than normal because of the restructuring efforts happening to game data, which will consolidate and reduce the overall game size. There is a change coming to animations as well, with the overall animation development pipeline being streamlined too. You can see the new running animation in the link above.
For more minor changes visit the site, including the fact that the minimum clearance level for Ranked has been increased from 20 to 30.
Do you like the changes to leaning?
