Rainbow Six Sweden Major 2021 recap

The Rainbox Six Sweden Major was definitely one to remember as two of the greatest teams in Rainbow Six put on a show.

After an impressive 5-0-0-1 from both FaZe and NiP in the group stage, they were destined for a Grand Finals showdown. NiP cruised to the finals dropping no maps in the knock stage while FaZe battled it out in the semis taking down DAMWON 2-1.

In the Grand Finals, FaZe Clan jumped off to an early 1-0 lead but the Ninjas responded taking the next two maps putting the Brazilians against the wall. However, FaZe was able to keep their composure and win the final two maps taking the best-of-5 series 3-2 and lifting the trophy.
