The Rainbow Six Major headed to Sweden in November, with 16 of the best teams in the world duking it out for $500,000, as well as Six Invitational points for 2022. We’ve got everything you need to know right here.
- FaZe Clan take down NiP in a 5-game series to win the Major
- Sweden Major Grand Finals comes down to NiP vs FaZe Clan
- $500,000 up for grabs, winner gets $200,000
The Six Major was back again, and this time it headed to Sweden for the third and final event of the year. Taking place in Gävle, the Six Sweden Major saw 16 teams from across the world compete for $500,000, as well as some sweet Six Invitational points for the 2022 season.
Similar to the Six Mexico Major held in August, the Sweden Major consisted of the same format. Group Stage took place from November 8 to 10, which then moved on to the Playoffs from November 12 to 14.
The Major also saw no on-site audience, with strict sanitary rules also in place to keep all participants and staff safe.
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.

The November Major will follow the same format as the Six Mexico major that we saw in August.
The Group Stage from November 8 to 10 will consist of four groups of four teams battling it out in a double round-robin, best-of-one format.
We’ll then see the top two teams from each group progress to the Playoffs, where they’ll be faced with a best-of-three single-elimination bracket, with a best-of-five grand final.
