Rainbow Six Siege (R6) is a popular first-person shooter game that has gained a large following since its release in 2015. However, like any game, R6 is not without its bugs and glitches. One common issue that players encounter is the mouse cursor appearing on the screen during gameplay. This can be frustrating and disruptive, but luckily there are a few simple steps you can take to fix this issue.
Check for Updates
Before trying any other solutions, make sure that your game is up to date. Developers often release patches and updates to fix bugs and glitches, so it’s important to ensure that you have the latest version of the game. To check for updates on Steam, go to your library, right-click on Rainbow Six Siege, and select “Properties.” Then, go to the “Updates” tab and click “Check for updates.” If there is an update available, it will automatically download and install.
Disable Discord Overlay
Discord is a popular communication platform for gamers, but its overlay feature can sometimes cause issues with games. To disable the Discord overlay, open Discord and go to “User Settings.” Then, click on “Overlay” and toggle off the “Enable in-game overlay” option. This should prevent the mouse cursor from appearing on the screen while playing R6.
Adjust Display Settings
Another potential cause of the mouse cursor appearing on the screen is incorrect display settings. To fix this, go to your computer’s display settings and make sure that the resolution and refresh rate are set to the recommended settings for your monitor. You can also try changing the display mode from fullscreen to borderless or windowed, as this can sometimes resolve the issue.
Update Graphics Drivers
Outdated or corrupted graphics drivers can also cause issues with games, including the mouse cursor appearing on the screen. To update your graphics drivers, go to your computer’s device manager and expand the “Display adapters” section. Right-click on your graphics card and select “Update driver.” You can also go to the manufacturer’s website to download and install the latest drivers manually.
Verify Game Files
If none of the above solutions work, you may need to verify the game files on Steam. This will check for any missing or corrupted files and replace them if necessary. To verify game files, go to your library, right-click on Rainbow Six Siege, and select “Properties.” Then, go to the “Local Files” tab and click “Verify integrity of game files.” This process may take a few minutes, but it can often fix issues with the game.
By following these steps, you should be able to fix the issue of the mouse cursor appearing on the screen while playing R6. If the problem persists, you may need to contact the game’s support team for further assistance. Have you encountered this issue before? Did any of these solutions work for you?
