Next time you load up Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 expect a title update. Among multiple little things, the coveted fix for "Private First Class" and "Freedom Shall Prevail" is included and those two achievements will be awarded to anyone who deserves them and has not received them to date. The full list of fixes and updates can be found below.
>>> IMPROVEMENTS <<<
Swapping to & from Pistols are now faster in Multiplayer.
Optimized sound bank to improve weapon firing and helicopter sound clips that loop over and over.
Servers now update their pings more often so that players have a more accurate value of server performance.
Team Leader Respawn Modification
Spawn Shield is shorter when respawning with the Leader.
When there are more people on a team than the other, there is an overall XP modifier applied to all XP gained during the game.
By pressing the start button, players now have access to the outfitting menu in observer mode.
Team Deathmatch Respawn Modification
