Fans have been complaining about the reported inaccuracies in the hit registration in Rainbow Six Siege. While they might blame the low ping and the slow Internet, their assumptions are not the whole truth.

Dominic Clement explained that the developers really adjusted the game to make it equal for everybody. This means that a low ping wouldn’t make much of a difference as long as the gap isn’t too large.

He said that players often think they have the advantage if they have high ping to win the match. In theory, players with high ping can react faster compared to others with low ping.

This means, they can pull the trigger faster, evade faster, and hide faster. That’s good in theory, but he said it’s not true.

In fact, he said there’s no such thing as a “ping abuse.” The system is geared to benefit the low-pingers in order to make the matches equal. This was the result of the 2017 update in order to reduce this perceived advantage of the high-pingers.

For instance, people always cite the hit registration when could not kill their enemies.

But the reason could simply be that they missed. Another reason why they couldn’t hit their enemies is when their ping suddenly spiked.

To illustrate, if they hit the enemy on the helmet or the external gear, they will miss. But in their minds, they hit their opponents. This results in the confusion.

There’s also such a thing as a hitbox. This is the hidden field that typically refers to the body inside the clothing or armor. However, the hitbox sometimes extends outside the body itself. So even if they seem to miss, they actually hit their opponent.

It’s not to say that Rainbow Six Siege doesn’t have bugs. But to blame the game if you are killed in battle is wrong. The developers really worked hard in order to make the game more accurate and equal for everybody. Not everyone owns a powerful computer or the benefit of a fast Internet connection.

Rainbow Six Siege was released on December 1, 2015, on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This tactical shooter game puts emphasis on team cooperation and environmental destruction.

You can choose from among the dozens of special forces around the world in order to thwart new threats. The game is based on Tom Clancy’s best-selling series.
