[Update: Fixed] Ubisoft aware of Rainbow 6 Siege Melusi exploit in Doktor's Curse Halloween event, issue under review

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on October 14, 2021) follows:

Ubisoft is a well-known game developer that launched various popular games including Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed series, For Honor, Prince of Persia, and many others.

Rainbow 6 Siege is one of the FPS video games released by Ubisoft in 2015. It is available on various gaming platforms including PlayStation, Xbox, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft, this online multiplayer tactical shooter video game has gradually become popular among gamers.


But lately, some players of Rainbow 6 Siege are reporting an issue (1, 2, 3, 4) where Melusi is unplayable in Doktor’s Curse Halloween event. As per reports, Melusi can climb up in the event but gamers can’t reach it, while attackers can.


@UbisoftSupport Can you PLEASE fix the R6 Siege Halloween event gargoyle exploit in first room where Melusi can climb up on it and stay out of reach while attackers can’t reach it ??? Every time you mess with something you f*** it up!(Source)

Everyone can get up there, melusi devices just Make it impossible for attackers to get up there (Source)

This is an annoying bug as Melusi being an operator helps gamers to slow down the speed of attackers giving them some extra time to find and shoot them. But the exploit prevents this whole thing which is frustrating.

On the brighter side, Ubisoft has acknowledged Rainbow 6 Siege Melusi exploit and they are currently reviewing it. Moreover, players will be posted on the further development regarding this issue.


Meanwhile, some players have suggested that this issue can be solved by disabling Melusi from the event. Another gamer suggested removing the vault prompt without removing Melusi.

This issue seems like something that can only be resolved internally by devs. We hope that Ubisoft resolves this bug as soon as possible and everything goes back to normal again.

That said, we will keep you informed on the further development of this Rainbow 6 Siege Melusi exploit as and when anything new comes to our notice.
