Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Achievements

Rainbow Six Legend

Complete the single player Story Mode at Realistic difficulty    

For this achievement you need to beat every scene, on every level, on realistic. The main difficulty with this achievement is the scarce amount of checkpoints throughout each scene or level. This must be done on single player, not coop.

Also be aware that you are not allowed to “Load Last Checkpoint” when playing through the game as this will reset your difficulty to normal. So you must complete each scene at a time. Generally scenes end when the screen fades to black.

I would recommend playing through the game at least once for a few reasons.

  1. Allows you to familiarize yourself with levels/game play
  2. Allows you to get locked weapons
  3. Gives you access to every mission on the mission select.

The main tactic players use for story is combining the shield and desert eagle. The shield can be found very early on in the scene “The Strip” and the desert eagle in near the start of the scene security. The shield is found right on the ground near all the police vans near the start of the mission right after rappelling down.

While the desert eagle is found in the scene "Calypso Casino" inside a small room surrounded by glass with a equipment box inside. There will be about 4 enemies holding them.

This combo is fairly successful in protecting you while still allowing you to kill enemies in 1 shot. Don’t forget you have control over your allies, by pressing you can send them to a door to flank multiple enemies or simply send them out into the open. Always send your allies before you go, even when the hallway looks safe there may be one lone enemy hiding at the end waiting for you.

just to clear up a little. i done this game 4 times on realistic and no achievement, i finaly got it the other day took about 8 hours, here is what i did.

write down all the levels with each secne to that level so you can tick which ones you have done
use the shield and pistol of your choice i used the glock
start from where ever you want if you have all levels unlocked but make sure you do that secne (its over when screen turns black)
if you need to turn xbox off you can do but here is what you must do when come to carry on the game instead of going to load last check point dont, go to single player scene select and then start the scene you know you haven't done, yes you can get the achievement by scene selecting.
take your time hopefully you wont of been doing this achievement a

It's a long game, value for the money but, at no point did I find a spot to be impossible. After having just finished playing Homefront where I could tell that particular parts of that game were not polished (i.e. with graphics and A.I.) thus making them difficult because someone hadn't made a good game. With Rainbow (i.e. a game 4 years older than Homefront)the A.I. and, in some instances, the graphics are better. The design of the levles also makes for interesting manuevering about in the search for alternative routes.

Sure there are parts that took 10+ tries to get through but, soon you'll learn where the baddies are coming from and respond appropriately. Great game.

Got the achievement on first playthrough. I didn't really like the game tho, the plot was boring and just like in any terrorist game "yay russian's and nukes", and usually the A.i of your team mate's ruin everything. The difficoulty would be something like 7/10 since there's only couple of spot's witch are hard, espescially if you use the riot shield + desert eagle, just keep the shield up and dont rush it and you should be just fine...

By the way,if you do the story on coop realistic, this achievement WILL NOT POP, so it has to be done on single player to get it.

SO (lmao) I started yesterday with the realistic run, AND now on the theater part (3/4 of the game) and saw this shit, so I really hope it's patched by now or I make a video of breaking the disc and dancing the mutchacha on it
btw didn't know either of a shield to pick up, all the those fantastic hours spend and then all this fantastic ****, for ONCE that I didn't want to use a guide because I'm not going for 100% completion! jesus old crappy games LOL

My guess is that clearing your cache deletes your in game progress. So don't do that until you've beaten the game entirely.

The 5/10 on the achievement guide roadmap is fucking wrong.

It should be 9/10 the bullshit AI has perfect aim and you can't use your awesome custom soldier.

It doesn't help either that the check points are pretty far and its too easy to die even when a fight is going fine.

I know this game is old but it would be nice if the checkpoints were more often so I don't have to waste my fucking time.

The control design is flat out awful I can't stand useing the RS as my focus aim in any shooter, Just put it on the fucking left trigger.

Recomended for people who want to go insane.

Just to clear this up. You can reload check points if you die. I played through 80% of the game thinking you couldn't. Then with the last set of levels. I just kept playing even though I died. Thinking I would just go back and scene select for Realistic. To my surprise I got the Vegas Legend Achievement. So you can reload check points and it doesn't reset it to Normal anymore. Wish I would've know that before I restarted from the main menu every time I died. You do have to go to scene select and put it on Realistic every time you quit playing though.

Ok, so I can die and reload the checkpoint, and it still pops. Cool. Anyone interested in unblocking some achievements? This was my first videogame on Xbox 360, 5 and a half years ago. I scored 220/1000 without understanding what achievements were. Now that it's a free download I'd like to unblock the co-op story cheevo and also, if possible, a few of the online ones.

I was doing the last section on Realistic (on the dam), so I go out, make progress, die, restart in the elevator, and I remembered the elevator glitch from long ago, so I do it, run up the stairs, and the enemies aren't there. They spawn, I kill them both, and go out, and there isn't a single enemy anywhere, so I managed to plant the bomb and run all the way to the end with ease. I love shit like that.

I am just here TO CONFIRM that you CAN reload the last checkpoint as MANY TIMES AT YOU WANT and still get the achievement. I hope that helps and puts your minds at rest.
I reloaded a BUNCH of checkpoints(died) and I just passed the game now and got it no problem. I had the UPDATE installed,so they must have patched it.

this game is ridiculous after being out for so long I thought it would have been patched yet the game is broken I have spent over an hour on the same room and all I keep seeing is "you have failed to kill irena morales" this is ridiculous, your team is a pair of extremely slow and unresponsive 4 year olds. this game has not aged well at all

Thanks to those that cleared up the thing about being able die and load last checkpoint. I was thinking I'd have to do each level without dying at all.

Just finished this. Insanely hard at times. I didn't use the shield though, so maybe that would've helped. I generally used: SCAR w/acog scope, GKA34 w/6x scope, Raging Bull, frags and flashbangs.

General tips-
-play normal first to familiarize yourself with the game (and its weird controls).
-Use your team constantly. Set them up to clear rooms and send them through first on blind corners. Actually, send them ahead of you all the time- you can die too easily from a surprise enemy. The AI enemies can make some great shots, but your guys can too.

-Take your time. As mentioned above, the one enemy left in a room can kill you quickly.
-Check the map. It's not always perfect but it can help you with enemy locations.
-Be very careful when dealing with pistol enemies. Those using a Raging Bull can kill you with one hit.
-Enemies have excellent aim at times, and can hit you when you're blind firing or otherwise close to the edge of your cover, so keep that in mind.
-If you use the shield, remember it doesn't make you invincible (which is why I didn't use it, it gave me a false sense of security).

The places I felt were the worst in this mode were near the end when Jung does the hack to get to Irena, and in the Calypso in that 5 floor atrium (when the guy talks about the will of the people).

Hack- right when you tell him to start look to the stairs in the room and kill the guy coming down. After that use smoke to cover your position. They won't last the whole hack but it'll save you during the initial rush.
Atrium- enemies spawn when you cross the threshold into the atrium, when you advance about 1/2 up the first set of the T stairs, when you step on the 1st floor (recommend you deal with these from the ground floor), maybe a guy in an alcove on the 3rd floor, and when you advance up the escalators to the 4th floor (recommend you deal with these from the 3rd floor alcove).
