Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction Alaska Studies Guide

Theatre Of Torment

  • Stun Still – Kill or Assist on a stunned Tormentor (May need to play on higher difficulties to find one. We were on Severe. Stun it before it teleports and melee it down)
  • Interception – Destroy Tormentor projectiles with firearms (Very hard. You need to wait until a Tormenter shoots a single, large projectile at you that moves slow. Video guide.)

  • Explosive Reaction – Damage Tormenters with explosives (Grenades, claymores, any work)

Eye In The Skye

  • Specialised Scanner – Scan enemies (Scan Grenades, Recon Drone etc)
  • Piercing Eye – Kill enemies through destructible surfaces. High caliber weapons work better. Spores & nests work quickest.
  • Scout Ahead – Ping Lurkers, Rooters or Smashers using up on the D-Pad.

Silent Killer

  • Silent Streak – Get several stealth kills in a row. Doesn’t have to be takedowns
  • Dormant Destruction – Kill Dormant Nests before they are alerted
  • Adept – Perform 3 stealth kills on 3 different Archaens in a single mission

Lurker Busting

  • Lurker Vulnerability – Kill Lurker with a head shot when its head is revealed
  • Specialized Reveal – Unlock a Lurker with a React Tech or Operator Abilities. Lurkers spawn on any difficult but on lower difficulties are more common in sub-zone three. If they detect you, cloaking as Vigil sometimes forces them to cloak. Shooting them to make them retreat can also sometimes trigger cloak. You want to use a Frag Grenade to remove the cloak.
  • Grand Reveal – Uncloak non-Lurker enemies that have been cloaked by the Lurker. Just shoot them or deal damage to remove the cloak


  • Trait Adjustment – Complete an objective with Parasite Mutations active. Minimum Cautious difficulty which has a 50% chance of a mutation. A mutation must be in effect for this to count.
  • Health Maintenance – Complete three objectives without being knocked down. These do not have to be done in a row.
  • Intel Target 4 – Earn 45,000 XP


  • Deadly Accuracy – Score 5 Weak Points in a row with a firearm
  • General Stunner – Kill or assist stunned Archaens. Use stun grenades, easy
  • Achilles Exploit – Get 10 kills with weak points

Silent And Deadly

  • Always Ready – Equip a suppressor and kill enemies via weak point hits
  • No Howls 2 – Complete an objective without any enemies howling and alerting nests
  • Shush – Take down 10 enemies. Stun grenades work for this, stun them and get within melee range to take down. You can also just take down nests.


  • Rooter Vulnerability – Kill a Rooter with a weak point hit. The weak point is on the back so you will need to attack from the rear. Stun grenades can help you get round for the shot
  • No Touchy – Kill or assist on Rooters before they root anyone
  • Pause – Stun rooters. You can stun the same one multiple times but you must let it full recover for the second or third stun to count

Performance Check-In

  • Spotless – Complete two objectives and extract with at least 80% total health – temporary health doesn’t count
  • Intel Target 5 – Earn 55,000 experience points. You get more experience points doing two objectives on the next difficulty up than three on the one down
  • Self Sufficient – Reach the third Sub-Zone without collecting any ammo

Nature Of The Chimera

  • Science Behind The Phenomena? – Automatically completes
