The number one game for Week 51 of 2021 is ‘Ready or Not’. The game sent waves throughout the shooter community with its trailers. It looked like the S.W.A.T 5 that was never released. Members of the FPS community were quick to get hyped over it. According to them, this game is everything that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege failed to be. Possessing a blend of dark and gritty realism along with intense, adrenaline-gushing adrenaline, players looked forward to this game.

The game entered its Early Access this month. Fans were taken aback by what all this title had to offer. Featuring realistic military and police raids, fans were enthralled. The game incorporates real to life hostage situations and other dynamic scenarios, such as active shooters. The player reports the role of a S.W.A.T officer who has to adopt strategies depending on the scenario to take down the threat.

The game has incorporated a bunch of sandbox elements. The player is given free rein over as to how they want to proceed. Do they want to go loud? Use flashbangs and breach charges. Perhaps a stealthier option is preferable. Worry not! Use a lockpick to silently get past a door. The game is currently at the top of the Steam weekly charts.
