DoorKickers 2: Task Force North

DoorKickers 2: Task Force North

If yours PC is too slow for the Rainbow Six Siege, then you should keep an eye on DoorKickers 2: Task Force North.

Ubisoft Insta-Banning Cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft Insta-Banning Cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege

Previously, when players were caught cheating, they were given a warning and had a temporary ban for three days, that was up until the most recent 1.3 patch.

Ubisoft has been pretty hush-hush about their actual “anti-cheat” methods, which is probably for the best. The more information that potential hackers have on these game mechanics, the easier it would be to potentially exploit them. Of course, there will be [...]
