Tour De Force Battle Pass

Main article: Battle Pass
Tour De Force

Two fires burning downtown.

It isn't long before we realize the flames aren't the main event. A major heist is brewing on the other side of the city. Paris is awash in the fiery glow of flashing lights as the police and the GIGN strive to keep order.

Someone wants us confused and scared. The Program has taught us a thing or two about situations like this. Stronger together, our training gives us the edge we need and our gear provides the rest.

They'll never know what hit them.
