Rainbow Six Siege’s defuser timing is off, complicated esports casters
Two mechanical quirks of Rainbow Six Siege wound up making the distinction throughout a match between G2 Esports and Group Empire final weekend. An Ubisoft sport designer has helped clarify what occurred, and it has to do with how the bomb defuser course of begins, and with how our bodies are dealt with between the multiplayer sport’s server and sport shopper.
With seven seconds remaining on the clock, G2 participant Advantage started counter defusing – a course of which, on paper, takes seven seconds. Whereas this was occurring, Group Empire’s Joystick started firing at him from the ground under. From the printed sales space, it appeared that Advantage ought to have had time to counter defuse, besides that he would have been shot by Joystick. However within the sport, neither of these issues occurred. Advantage ran out of time, and none of Joystick’s rounds ever touched him.
Rainbow Six Siege sport designer Emilien Lomet took to Twitter to elucidate the discrepancy. It’s true that the defuse time is seven seconds, he mentioned – however there’s a 0.6 second animation to start out the defuse course of, which makes the entire thing take 7.6 seconds.
Right here’s the tweets:
For the shopper aspect physique state of affairs: I can not focus on it simply but, however keep tuned 👀

Whereas Lomet says he can’t focus on the particulars but, what he’s speaking about within the second tweet is the issue that saved Joystick’s rounds from hitting Advantage. There was a physique blocking line of sight between the 2 gamers, and since this was being dealt with on the shopper aspect, the printed sales space couldn’t see it – making it appear like Joystick was firing immediately at Advantage to no impact.
Lomet says the crew is engaged on a change that would come with the beginning animation within the complete defuse time, and that whereas he can’t but touch upon the “shopper aspect physique state of affairs”, gamers ought to “keep tuned” – so you may most likely anticipate the Siege dev crew to deal with it someday quickly. They’ve lately gone and mounted the recoil bug, in spite of everything.
