The great Rainbow Six: Siege is updated today to welcome a new event available for a limited time (from today until July 16). This is Showdown, a curious contest that moves us to the far west to participate in games of 3 vs. 3 players where one team plays justice and the other, outlaws called La Banda del Ripio.
Showdown games only take place on a new map of Secure Zone, Strong Truth. Between the forces of the law, the attacking side, they are Ash, Capitão, Glaz, Maverick and Twitch; While among his opponents, who play on the defensive side, we see Alibi, Caveira, Kaid, Maestro and Rook. All these soldiers will be equipped only with a BOSG shotgun. 12.2 and a Magnum LFP586 revolver. There is no preparation phase, no reinforcements. The interface shows reduced information (no health, no ammunition, no sights) and each round lasts 90 seconds, so it is decided in quick shootings where each shot must hit its target to win.
Each character has new themed cosmetics, shaping a new collection of 31 objects in total. You can get hold of them through special packages that contain hats, uniforms or weapon features.
