[3. Situations]

The situations are Rainbow Six Siege's alternative to a singleplayer campaign. They are standalone scenarios where you are placed in one of the multiplayer/Terrorist Hunt maps and are tasked to carry out an objective while AI enemies stand between you and that goal.

Each mission has 3 secondary goals that can be completed for an additional star. These stars do not have to be obtained in a single attempt, so it's possible to complete one secondary objective and then complete the other 2 in another attempt(s).

There is an achievement for earning all stars, but there is no achievement for doing this on the Realistic difficulty so feel free to set the difficulty to 'normal'. Our fellow Trueachievement user 'Papa Smurf U' was kind enough to make videos of every single situation while obtaining every single star in a single attempt. Please leave a like and/or subscribe if you like his videos!

Upon completing all 10 situations, you will unlock a bonus mission that does not have secondary objectives. More about this mission at the bottom of this page...

NOTE: completing all these missions with 3 stars will earn you a sum in the ballpark of 7000 renown. If you stick to doing the singleplayer situations before hopping into the multiplayer, you will have no reason to spend any of that renown until you are ready to jump into the multiplayer (in single player, you do not get to play with the operator or weapons of your chosing). I recommend saving up your renown until you have accumulated 5000 renown and earn:

Bonus Mission - Article 5

-No secondary objectives

This mission deserves a little bit of extra information, because even though it is listed as a singleplayer situation, you will actually be matched into a Terrorist Hunt game where you will team up with other players who may have selected this mission from their 'situations' list just as you have, or with players who are searching for Terrorist Hunt through regular matchmaking (this mission is part of the regular Terrorist Hunt cycle in matchmaking but the achievement for this mission can only be obtained if you select it from your 'situations' list).

You are dropped into a 'Defuse Bomb' scenario on a college campus that has been hit by a gas attack. This gas significantly impairs your vision. Your enemies will seemingly not be affected by the lack of sight and might catch you by suprise so you should tread very carefully.

If you have purchased 'IQ' as was suggested at the 'General tips and tricks' page then you can use her gadget to locate the position of the bomb. You can scan the 4 possible bomb locations from the outisde of the building, without actually having to enter so you will be relatively safe while locating the bombs.

1st bomb spot: When At the first corner that you encounter. If you do not get a hit then move towards the right side , past the front entrance of the university.
2nd bomb spot: The first corner you find when crossing the front entrance of the university, if you do not get a hit then move on.
3rd bomb spot: This one is all the way in the left back (where the lowered part of the roof is). Stand on the lowered roof and scan the inside of the building.
4th bomb spot: Directly below the 3rd one.

When you have found the bombs, you need to clear out the room where the bomb is located in (hopefully with the help of your teammates) and plant a defuser. Plant this defuser either tucked away really well, where enemies will have a hard time reaching it, or plant it right in the middle of the room where you and your teammates have a perfect line of sight at it, such as on top of a table. Enemies will attempt to defuse the bomb even when they are shot at so you can exploit this by just shooting them off the defuser one by one. You will have to fight off waves of enemies until the defuser is done.

Repeat this process for the second bomb, and you are done.
