The developers of Rainbow Six Siege at Ubisoft have made quite a few special events over time. And one of the most popular was the Showdown event which is back for 2021.
The Wild West-themed shootout mode features operators from the game in two teams. While Rainbow Six Siege is one of the most popular first person shooter competitive games out there. It does get a bit tedious at times with albeit a while roster of larger-than-life characters chasing each other through hallways. Hence these new modes are a good way to cut loose from the formula and do something else in the game.
This limited-time mode unlike some of the other event modes offers an entirely new map that has a unique visual style. Those that have been waiting for the Rainbow Six Extraction game to release this could be a good way to spend the time before that launches.

If you ever wanted to be a Cowboy on Rainbow Six Siege this new mode which is available from September 21 to September 28 is when you get to experience it. Showdown has only a limited number of Operators available, with five chosen to represent “The Law” as attackers, while five are chosen to be the Graveltop Gang as defenders.
