Ubisoft has announced new anti-cheating measures to tackle the use of XIM Cronus adapters in Rainbow Six Siege. These devices allow players to use keyboard and mouse controls on consoles, giving them a significant advantage over controller players. According to Ubisoft, the new measures will detect when a player is using a XIM Cronus adapter and block them from the game. The company has been working on the technology for several months and has now completed the testing phase.
In a statement, Ubisoft said that it is committed to creating a fair and balanced playing environment in Rainbow Six Siege. The use of XIM Cronus adapters undermines this goal and has been a major source of frustration for console players who feel that they are at a disadvantage. By deploying these new anti-cheating measures, Ubisoft hopes to create a more level playing field for all players.
Rainbow Six Siege has been plagued by cheating since its release in 2015. While Ubisoft has implemented a number of anti-cheating measures over the years, the use of XIM Cronus adapters has been particularly difficult to detect. This is because the adapters mimic the behavior of a controller, making it difficult for anti-cheat systems to distinguish between them and legitimate controllers.
In addition to the new anti-cheating measures, Ubisoft is also planning to release a major update for Rainbow Six Siege in the coming weeks. The update will include a range of new content, including new operators, maps, and game modes. It will also include a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
The use of XIM Cronus adapters is not unique to Rainbow Six Siege. It is a problem that affects many competitive multiplayer games on consoles. While the adapters are not strictly illegal, they are widely considered to be unethical and a form of cheating. The fact that Ubisoft is taking steps to combat their use in Rainbow Six Siege is a positive development for the game’s community.
