“Rainbow Six Siege” Introduces The “Showdown” Limited-Time Event

Ubisoft kicked off a brand new limited-time event in Rainbow Six Siege today as players can now take part in the 3-v-3 mode “Showdown“. This event will run from July 2nd until July 16th, giving you two whole weeks to rack up as many points as you can and enjoy a simpler western-themed version of the game. The mode is pretty basic as you will be playing gunslingers from the wild west in a “secure area type” mode with an exclusive new map called Fort Truth. You’ll have your pick of attackers and defenders with gear specific to the mode and zero prep time. Basically, its do or die in a short amount of time. You can read more below and check out the trailer for the event. And hey, maybe if you make it popular enough, they might just keep it in Rainbow Six Siege. Good luck, sharpshooters!

This limited game mode will see two trios of Attackers and Defenders competing with only a BOSG.12.2 and a Magnum LFP586 in hand to face off against each other. Moreover, Showdown will introduce a limited HUD where health, ammo, and crosshairs are stripped away, and no preparation phase is allowed.

The Showdown event will introduce 31 western-themed exclusive items. Showdown exclusive items will include full wild west outfits composed of various items, alongside headgear that players can acquire for 10 operators. Players that log in during the event will get a free Showdown Collection Pack and can complete the Ubisoft Club Event challenges to earn a pack and a unique weapon skin for the BOSG.12.2. Players can also purchase the Showdown packs for 300 R6 Credits.
