Rainbow Six Extraction update 1.03 fixes crashes and Sludge

Rainbow Six Extraction Update

Rainbow Six Extraction update 1.03 is in the prep phase, waiting to roll out across all platforms later today.

The alien-hunting shooter is currently down for maintenance with the latest patch being available once servers go live. Note that you’ll need to install Rainbow Six Extraction update 1.03 to play online so make sure you get it downloaded.

Ubisoft hasn’t introduced any new content or features, targeting bugs that the player community have been reported. This update should help fix some of the freezing and crashes experienced by some users. Other game-specific fixes include adjustments to the Sludge enemy’s hitbox making hit registration more consistent.

Rainbow Six Extraction Update 1.03 Patch Notes

  • Fixed an issue that was causing freezes/lag during gameplay for Xbox players.
  • Fixed multiple issues causing the game to crash on launch on PC.
  • Fixed an issue where throwing Stun Grenades near Blinding Spores would occasionally cause the game to crash.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing players to occasionally get stuck in an infinite Airlock transition.
  • Fixed an issue with the Sludge’s hitbox.
  • Fixed multiple instances where players would find themselves unable to interact or perform other key actions. (voting, aiming, shooting etc.)

Hopefully we’ll hear more on what Ubisoft has planned for Extraction in future, including new Operators, modes, maps, and game features.

If you’re more of a Siege fan then good news. We’re about to get the lowdown on Year 7 – find out more here.

In our Rainbow Six Extraction review we scored the game a solid 7 out of 10:

“It’s perhaps not what Tom Clancy fans had envisioned for the series, but there’s something to Rainbow Six Extraction that’s definitely worth checking out. It stands apart from similar co-op shooters thanks to that tactical edge and gunplay it’s inherited from Siege. That said, the repetitive nature of running missions, difficulty spikes, and overall presentation hold the game back. This is Ubisoft we’re talking about, however, so Extraction will likely sprout a long tail that will continue to grow over the coming months and years.”
