The players have recently reported (1,2,3,4,5) issues with the Finka Elite skin and crashing during Deathmatch mode. Users who purchased the Finka Elite skin have claimed that they instead received the Echo Elite skin.

In addition to the Finka Elite skin issue, players have also been experiencing crashes during Deathmatch mode.

The crashes appear to be occurring when using non-universal attachment skins, causing Rainbow Six Siege to crash in Deathmatch.
