Achievements, Trophies, and Uplay Challenges
There are 48 achievements in Rainbow Six Siege for Uplay (PC) and Xbox One; and 49 trophies on PS4 to include the platinum trophy. Click the name of each achievement and trophy to reveal some tips and tricks on how to unlock it. I separated all achievements and trophies into Situations, Terrorist Hunt, Multiplayer, other, and Secret achievements/trophies that are hidden until unlocked. Secret achievements / trophies are mostly tied to multiplayer.
Stars mark the three different challenges in each of the ten Situations. A Situation does not have to be completed to earn a star unless it specifically says complete the mission. At least one of the three challenges will say to complete the mission with at least 50% health. Press the scoreboard button (ESC, MENU, SELECT) to see the status of the current challenges. See the videos on the Situations page for all Situations with three stars.

The eleventh situation is actually a Terrorist Hunt game. The mode is Disarm Bomb on the map Bartlett University. The best Operators to have are IQ, to find the two objective bombs and watch out for traps; Glaz, to easily target terrorists through the gas; and Lion, to tag all enemies on the map for a few seconds. Another good option is Thatcher to destroy all the Nitro Cells or disarm Bombers before they can suicide bomb your team.
This can be done lone wolf (solo) or through matchmaking.
This can be done on any of the Terrorist Hunt missions. Play multiple games and aim high!
This requires a good team and knowledge of the Operator you choose. The team has to push forward, find and secure the objective or eliminate any Terrorists that are in the way. Remember, the AI reacts pretty slow. Move fast and aim for the head.
The achievement is best done on Extract Hostage. The team can locate the hostage quickly and run away with them before the enemies know what hit them. Using the Post-Launch Operator Lion is a great choice for Terrorist Hunt since his ability tags all terrorists on the map. Buck and Sledge are also great since their abilities quickly punch holes through walls.
This achievement / trophy is best completed with a whole team online, and it is easiest on the Protect Hostage game mode. You can choose game modes in the matchmaking preference setting in the options menu, but it might take longer to find a match.
Prepare the area and protect the objective. Doc and Rook are great choices for the team since they heal and protect everyone from damage. The ammo box can only be used a max of five times on Realistic difficulty, so use it only when absolutely necessary. Remember to work together, barricade the room, and cover each point of access as if you were playing a survival or zombie game. Do not go wandering off!
Make note, playing the Article 5 match (Bomb on Bartlett U) will not count towards this achievement since it’s listed as a Situation! Either de-select Bomb or Bartlett U from the matchmaking preferences.
This achievement is a bit glitchy on PC. You can view your stats on https://game-rainbow6.ubi.com, but you might have to go into the 3000 mark before the achievement actually unlocks. All you need to do is kill a lot of terrorists in Terrorist Hunt. Try doing this while going for the Camper achievement or trophy. If this is the last one left, start a lone wolf terrorist hunt classic match and keep killing enemies until the achievement unlocks.
You must win 100 matches of Protect Hostage on Terrorist Hunt. The Protect Hostage game mode can be selected alone from the matchmaking settings in the options menu. When playing Protect Hostage, it’s best to use Doc and Rook to keep the team healthy and sturdy. The other three can be almost any other Operator.
This achievement / trophy requires the penetration kill bonus while playing Terrorist Hunt. Simply shoot an enemy through a soft surface (wood or thin metal, not concrete or steel) until they are killed. It’s best to shoot through soft surfaces that don’t destruct, such as couches or other heavy-duty furniture. Walls can work for a short time, but they will break apart after several shots. Another option is to find a dead Terrorist and use his body as a surface. Terrorists who die standing up near a window or door are the best options.
This achievement can only be done while playing as an attacker on Multiplayer. You must select one of a handful of Operators, and choose the Stun Grenade for their loadout. These Operators are listed on the Weapons and Gadgets page. When you think or know an enemy is in the next room, throw the flashbang to blind and deafen them before running in and killing them. The stun grenade bonus must appear with the kill XP bonus to count toward the achievement! Another option is to use Blitz to run up and flash enemies with your shield before melee attacking. A stun grenade or Blitz’s shield will work.
Barricades are the simple wooden boards that you place over doors and windows. Do this to five doors or windows in a multiplayer game during the preparation phase to unlock this achievement. It will soon become second nature to you.
These are only the rounds, not the entire game. Win 50 rounds in Multiplayer. Three rounds are needed to win a casual multiplayer game, and four to five rounds to win a ranked multiplayer game.
To unlock Ranked Multiplayer, you must first reach Clearance level 30. Play and complete ten ranked matches to then receive a skill rank.
When a teammate gets knocked into the downed state during a Multiplayer or Terrorist Hunt match, go over and hold the button that appears on screen to revive them. Alternatively, Doc can revive a downed teammate with the shot of his stim pistol, and Finka can revive a downed teammate with her adrenaline boost ability.
This achievement / trophy is best on Terrorist Hunt since those matches go much more quickly than Multiplayer. You can de-select Disarm Bomb from the matchmaking settings in the options menu, but you will need to play Protect Hostage to play as the defense Operators.
Play a match with each of the 20 Legacy Operators to earn this achievement. This includes Operators from the SAS, FBI, GIGN, Spetznaz, and GSG9.
Complete the tutorial videos and a few situation objectives to earn some Renown. Use 500 Renown to unlock your first Attack Operator.
Complete the tutorial videos and a few situation objectives to earn some Renown. Use 500 Renown to unlock your first Defense Operator.
CTU stands for Counter Terrorism Unit. Unlock all Operators from a single CTU to earn this achievement. The original CTUs have four Operators to a unit (two offense and two defense). The newer, Post-Launch Operators have only two Operators per CTU. The prices of those Operators vary. The recent Operators are more expensive.
Unlock all 20 Legacy Operators to earn this achievement. This includes Operators from the SAS, FBI, GIGN, Spetznaz, and GSG9.
Earn 16,000 XP in Multiplayer and Terrorist Hunt until your overall Clearance Level reaches 50. This should come automatically while earning all other achievements or trophies.
As of year three, all weapon attachments are instantly unlocked. This achievements will also unlock for all who log in to Rainbow Six Siege after the update.
This is easiest done with a universal weapon skin. Once you have unlocked one universal skin by purchasing it with Renown or R6 Credits, or by unlocking it through Alpha Pack or special event challenge, apply it to thirty different weapons across your unlocked Operators. All Operators have at least three weapons, meaning at least ten Operators will be needed to complete this achievement.
Add an attachment, weapon skin, and charm to a weapon. Each can be unlocked with Renown or R6 Credits.
This can be done in about five hours, and all 5000 Renown must be held at once. After reaching the 5000 Renown limit, use it to unlock Operators or any type of skin.
Use an attack Operator with a shotgun or breach charge to blow open a hatch in the floor on the map “House.” Hatches are the square trap doors on floors/ceilings in a building.
Rappelling is when you climb up the side of a building using a rope and hook. Climb up the main building on the consulate map, then breach through a window by busting down the wooden barrier. You can melee the barrier three times, melee it two times before jumping in, or use a breach charge to blast open the barrier.
You must be on the defensive team in order to reinforce a breakable wall. Simply walk up to a breakable wall until you see the message that says “Hold [F, X, or Square] to reinforce.”
This is easiest done on Terrorist Hunt since those games are often short, and you can select where you wish to defend at the start of the Terrorist Hunt match. Furthermore, you can select the game mode and map specifically for Terrorist Hunt in the settings, but only game modes are select-able for multiplayer.
Hostage can be the only game mode selected from the matchmaking settings in the options menu, but you will have to wait for the Hereford map to show up before you can attempt this achievement.
Secure Area can be the only game mode selected from the matchmaking settings in the options menu, but you will have to wait for the Clubhouse map to show up before you can attempt this achievement.
This must be done as a defender. Attackers will use drones during the preparation phase to locate the objective, and they will have the option to use more drones during the action phase. If you see any, destroy them with a single shot from your firearms. Mute’s Signal Jammer will force drones to stop in place, and Bandit’s shock wire can electrify various metallic objects that will instantly destroy any gadget.
This must be done with a regular Breach Charge gadget. Thermite’s exothermic charge and any other explosives will not work. Some players have suggested finding an inactive defender, or a defender that’s currently downed, walk over to them, set a breach charge on a breakable surface nearby, and detonate it to earn a kill. Another option is to place a breach charge next to a planted bomb and set it off right as the defender goes to defuse.
The only Operators that can truly track defending Operators are Jackal and Lion. Of course, this achievement can be accomplished through luck alone. Place a breach charge at the corner of the wall instead of the middle, since most Operators hide in corners.
Search out the defenders before going forward. After finding the room they’re holding up in, look for any outside walls that have been reinforced with steel. Use the Thermite Charge to blow it open and earn this achievement / trophy.
Unfortunately, if the steel is also electrified by Bandit, the charge will automatically explode without destroying the steel. Mute’s signal disruptors will also prevent Thermite’s charge from going off. If you run into either of these problems, throw Thatcher’s EMP charge near the reinforced wall to destroy all these gadgets.
The best way to earn this is to put barbed wire right before or beneath a barricaded door. When an attacker starts breaking the barricade, try to kill them through the barricade before they leave the barbed wire and regain their normal speed. You can also place a nitro charge next to the reinforced wall that can be remote detonated at the first sign of an enemy. However, many Operators will hear the beeps of the C4 before breaching into the room.
Only certain defensive Operators can select Nitro Cells as their gadget during Multiplayer. Since Nitro Cells have a blinking red light on them which makes a beeping noise, they’re usually pretty easy to spot. Use it as a trap by hiding it somewhere out of view, or throw it towards an enemy and detonate it like a remote-controlled grenade. If the enemy is using a shield, make sure their backside is exposed before detonating the C4. The Operator Pulse is a decent option to track enemy Operators and throw a Nitro Cell on the other side of a wall or even floor!
Secure Area can be the only selected game mode from the matchmaking settings in the options menu. After that, try to find the objective with your drone during the preparation phase to earn this achievement. This is part luck and part listening for the opposing team setting up their defenses.
Obviously this is easiest done with a team you know, but we’re not all so lucky to have four friends to play with. Try to communicate with your team and play smart! Ranked is filled with players who will try harder than normal!
Since Rainbow Six Siege is an Ubisoft game, it comes with Uplay challenges in addition to normal achievements and trophies. Complete classic challenges to earn XP and Uplay points or a Uplay badge. Unfortunately, if you purchase this game on multiple platforms and use the same Uplay account, none of the saved data will transfer. Challenges, currency, unlocks, everything is set to each platform.
In addition to classic challenges, daily and weekly challenges keep rewarding you for playing. Complete weekly challenges to earn XP and Renown, and possibly even an item from the shop.
The weekly challenges change each week at 5am Pacific DST on Tuesdays. The classic challenges never change and are listed below in order of ease. There are also special event challenges that appear from time to time under the weekly challenges list.
