    Rainbow Six Siege App Hanging when Breaching?


      As you know, Rainbow Six Siege is a very popular esports game. On these recent drivers, whenever I try to play my game crashes once an explosion of any type occurs. Please fix this issue, I really like Rainbow six Siege and would like to play it without these crashes. Thanks for the help and goodbye!  !

          What is the make and model of your GPU card? Windows version currently using? Which AMD driver you are using or used?


          Since I don't know your GPU card or Windows version, I just picked a Windows 10 latest Driver 17.12.2 (12/19/17) from AMD Support with the following Resolved issues:

          If it is something different, See if the game website Support has any new patches otherwise make a AMD REPORT ISSUE to let AMD know it still has problems with the game.

          From above mentioned link:


          FIXED – Too much smoke appears when shooting with some weapons.

          FIXED – Installing the latest graphics driver for AMD will cause a crash when explosives are triggered.

          FIXED – Concussion and Sonic Burst effect applies to replays if applied after the start of replay.
