This time, the target is you!
Your team stalks terror for a living. Now terror is stalking you. You've got cutting-edge weaponry and peerless military training. They've got a man-made virus, capable of killing millions. You have the world's best operatives. They have one of your men hostage. The chips are stacked. Ready to tango?
In the near future, terror has escalated to a new level: bioterrorism. A global terrorist network threatens to strike with a terrifying nanotech virus - but the target is uncertain. Team Rainbow, an elite counter-terrorism unit, is spearheading a new war on terror. They are the only ones who can save millions of innocent lives threatened by radical terrorists.
But when Team Rainbow is personally attacked, close-quarter battles reach unprecedented levels of tension and intensity. They will do whatever it takes to protect their people and bring then home. Team Rainbow does not negotiate with terror. They destroy it.
