Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege has always had a more competitive side to it. Highly lethal weapons, specialized heroes and friendly fire make it so that players need to be quite careful with their shooting. Recently, players have spotted a symbol next to their name.
Here's what having a red triangle next to your name on the Rainbow Six Siege scoreboard means.
Rainbow Siege Siege Red Triangle Meaning?
The Rainbow Six Siege red triangle that players have begun reporting on forums is linked to the freshly introduced Reverse Friendly Fire mechanic. It was added in an attempt to lessen the number of griefers and friendly fire kills across the board.
The way it works is the following. Once a team kill is performed, the Reverse Friendly Fire mechanic kicks in, returning all future friendly fire from the offender to them or their gadgets. Victims have a chance to let the system know if they thought the team kill wasn't intentional, in which case the mechanic won't kick in. When a player is under the effect of Reverse Friendly Fire, others are informed through the game's UI, which includes a red triangle symbol next to the offender's name.
Ubisoft has stated that the current iteration of the Reverse Friendly Fire in Rainbow Six Siege is by no means final, as it is still looking to listen to feedback from players. Regardless, if you spot a red triangle next to your name in Rainbow Six Siege, it's likely that you're being a tad naughty that match. You can read more about the RFF over on the game's website.
