Siege: Patch Update 2.1

Siege: Patch Update 2.1

While the new patch isn’t that exciting, it does have a few juicy morsels. We’ve taken the liberty of highlighting the key points. SPECTATOR MODE One of the most important new features added with this latest patch is the spectator mode, you can read more about that here.  Regretfully, in it’s present state, it’s a “cool feature” but ultimately rather useless, and more quaint than anything. Basically, the gist of it is: you have to create a custom game with 10 people, no more, no less, and THEN an 11th person can join the match to watch it. If the Read more ---

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

LEARN FROM THE BEST…OR DIE LIKE THE REST Rainbow Six Siege offers players a new way to experience its tense counter-terrorist action. The Spectator Cam allows an 11th person to participate in the 5v5 multiplayer matches by giving them the chance to witness the action through two different camera options. With the traditional First-Person View, the spectator can see through the eyes of an individual player during a match, while the Tactical View lets them switch between following individual players automatically, or zooming out over the map to see everything that’s happening. You can get your first look at the Read more ---

If you’ve been playing video games for more than a week, you’re sure to have run into a cheater or two. We wanted to get in the head of a cheater/hacker so we reached out to a pretty famous one who happens to run a “game cheating” website which sells these hacks. He chose to remain anonymous, so for the rest of the interview, we’re going to refer to him simply as “L3p3r“. XP4T: How long have you been hacking and how did you get started with hacking?
