Showdown at Fort Truth Ubisoft

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is inviting players to be part of its latest event “Showdown at Fort Truth.” The event started yesterday, July 2, and ends on July 16.

The event is set during the wildest days of the West where The Law finally catches up with the Graveltop Gang in a final showdown. On the side of The Law, we have a band of gunslingers who are dedicated to bringing justice: Erik “Maverick” Thorn, Eliza “Ash” Cohen, Emmanuelle “Twitch” Pichon, Vicente “Capitão” Souza, and Timur “Glaz” Glazkov. The Graveltop Gang, meanwhile, is composed of people who let their guns do the talking and don’t know what surrender means: Aria “Alibi” de Luca, Jalal “Kaid” El Fassi, Taina “Caveira” Pereira, Adriano “Maestro” Martello, and Julien “Rook” Nizan.

To celebrate the event, a new 3v3 Secure Area map was created. There is an important new rule though, players are only allowed to use the BOSG.12.2. and Magnum LFP86. The event also brings with it a limited HUD where health, ammo, and crosshairs are stripped.
