Rainbow Six Siege Update Changes Requirements for 33 Achievements

By Rebecca Smith, 6 days ago
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Operation Phantom Sight began yesterday, and it was accompanied by a patch with plenty of gameplay improvements and bug fixes. One of the changes they made that the patch notes failed to mention was that the unlock requirements for 33 achievements have been changed to reduce the amount of grinding players have to do to get them.

Any achievements that required specific maps/missions, or terrorist hunt, have had their descriptions and possibly their names changed. The achievements now focus far more on casual and ranked multiplayer. Here's a full list of changes to the achievements:
