Rainbow Six Siege cheat makers shot their in the foot to avoid their software being detected. It almost sounds like poetry.

Ubisoft recently cracked down on console cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege who used keyboard and mouse to gain an advantage over their peers who played fair and square.

The news kicked up a lot of dust that reached the cheat makers who scrambled to deal with the issue, in good part because by the time of the announcement, the cheaters had already been detected.

Now the cheat makers found a way around detection once again but it doesn't mean it's all sunshine and rainbows in Cheatlandia.

Namely, "refining" the cheat to bypass the tightening grip of the detection software resulted in the controls feeling clunkier than they normally would on a keyboard and mouse.

Furthermore, micro-adjustments are harder with this particular cheat, meaning the user's accuracy will be even lower than expected. In other words, the illegal use of KBM on consoles is significantly hampered when compared to what it's supposed to feel like.

It remains to be seen how much of an advantage the cheats will provide in the future, especially if Ubisoft plugs a few more holes and finds another way to detect it.

Ironically, Ubisoft's solution to the initial batch of cheaters they caught was to make the KBM users' inputs have artificial lag, which is somewhat similar to the consequences of the cheat maker's solution to bypassing detection.
