Rainbow Six Siege 'Lorem Ipsum' text appearing on drone screen issue under investigation

Rainbow Six Siege is one of the most famous competitive titles. The first-person multiplayer shooting game is liked by both professional and casual players alike because of its tactical nature.

Thanks to Ubisoft, Rainbow Six Siege always feels fresh because the developers constantly churn out new content updates and make balance changes.

Talking of balance changes, recently many players were frustrated when the developers decided to remove the SMG-11 from Sledge’s list of secondary weapons.


Having said that, Rainbow Six Siege players are now reporting a new issue with the game. Many players say that they are seeing the infamous Lorem Ipsum text when using a drone.

If you don’t know what it is, Lorem Ipsum is just placeholder text developers or designers use when they want to create content. In other words, it is a dummy text that is intended to be replaced with something meaningful later on.

While the new bug has no effect on gameplay, many are confused about what it refers to since they are unaware of the same.

I was playing R6 with my friends today and in the drone phase I saw the text “Lorem Ipsum” disolayed in red, anyone know what it is?

It just pops up red text saying “Lorem Ipsum” every time I hop on my drone. I actually think I know how to replicate it too. Whenever I hit tab (which isn’t bounded to scoreboard for me) and scan, this red text pops up.(Source)

It looks like the Lorem Ipsum text appears when scanning normally or near the compass where it tells the name of the room or area.

If you are a competitive player, this can be annoying since the text is stuck in the center of the screen. At times, it can prevent players from sharing the enemy location since the name of the room is also replaced by Lorem Ipsum

Fortunately, Rainbow Six Siege developers have acknowledged the issue and said that they are currently investigating the Lorem Ipsum text issue when using drones.


Most likely, someone at Ubisoft forgot to replace the placeholder when updating the code. It is really hilarious and annoying at the same time how an experienced gaming studio like Ubisoft can make such mistakes.

Ubisoft also asked players to keep a tab on their social media for further updates. We will update this update when a fix is released, so make sure you keep an eye on this space.
