Rainbow Six Siege Update Changes Requirements for 33 Achievements

By Rebecca Smith,
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:

    Good move! Ive never managed to even play on some maps, so making these more likely to pop is a wise decision. Thanks!

    Changing existing achievements is very lame imo, they should have added them with dlc's/title updates lol

    I've struggled to get many of the achievements because of the maps not appearing as frequently as I would have liked so I welcome these changes.

    How difficult is the list now? It looks very easy. I don’t know how the ranking system works, but if it’s anything like other games, getting to Gold should be a breeze.
    Would you kindly?

    Oh fucking hell! Why did Ubisoft change two achievements you could get on your own before to 2 ranked achievements? That one for the 5 flawless ranked victories, and also that one for achieving the gold rank in ranked just seems impossible for me.

    I was going to return to this game quite soon to get the rest of the achievements as well... angry

    Always funny to read comments when an achievement requirement is changed to make it easier in some way.

    My personal annoyances with the new list are "Win 1 Round with every original Operator in Ranked" (not all Ops are created equal) and "10 Kills with Frag Grenades" (only 3 characters have frags).

    Planting and Defusing the defuser will probably be a bit tedious as well.

    I must say I am slightly upset because grinding for Camper was a B****...Now it is very easy to get Camper haha.

    For people complaining they got harder, you had 3+ years to get achievements. If you haven't got them by now, let's be honest...you probably weren't going to get them. For people complaining they got easier, it's taking nothing away from you. You are upset that they are improving the experience for those that come after you? Really?

    They did not change the breach kill achievement...of course the hardest one is the one they do not change

    Is his a serious question? This is constantly one of the top played games on the Xbox charts this site puts out.

    Also it sucks that these are laughably easy now but this should get a lot of people on site into the game. It will significantly decrease the completion time because the longest achievements were killing terrorists with bullet penetration, 100 defences and total amount of terrorists killed.

    Meh... hopefully I had 100% from years now, but I think it's a shame they changed so many achievements. More than disrespecting people that were on their way to get the 100 defenses in Terrorist hunt, they just showed they don't care about anything else than the Multiplayer, which is sad because the real game story was everything outside of the MP. Good luck for people trying to get Gold Rank now, because since they also changed the ranked system allowing only bomb mode, you'll now only meet tryharders. And even though Gold is 2500MMR and you start with this MMR each season, having at least 5 wins on your qualifying games will be pretty hard without a correct team.

    (Tip : Go for smurfs => Get a group of 5, create second accounts, derank your 5 secondary to Copper IV, then bring one of you into the group to make the matchmaking easier. 4 Copper IV + 1 Unranked is basically 4x1100+1x2500/5=1400MMR, so you'll easily encounter Copper/Bronze/Silver while going for gold. Then rinse and repeat for each needed member)
    Please, be kind, you'll not regret it ;) Love you all !!!

    Ya, this is absolute bull. Those realistic difficulty achievements were fun and rewarding since their TA score was decently high. And all that grinding for the penetration kills was all for naught.......LAME. Now everyone will unlock it and drive the TA scores down.
