Rainbow Six Siege has made steady improvements since its release in 2015 but a new innovation to curb toxicity will now focus on hate speech. This new Rainbow Six Siege toxicity system is being implemented to curb the use of racial or homophobic slurs. Players caught using hate speech will receive bans from the game and these bans can range in severity from two days to a permanent ban from the game.

The system for tracking toxicity in Rainbow Six Siege will utilize the existing reporting features but will also implement a new chat-filtering system. This filtering system is fully automated and will censor text in chats and will replace words deemed offensive. The filtering system will also track the number of times a player triggers this feature and will take action to ban the player for frequent use.
