This weekend, north-eastern Japan was rocked by a magnitude 7.3 earthquake. Considering how devastating earthquakes can be, people were worried. Some called loved ones, others sent messages. And in Rainbow Six Siege, one player smashed a wall to check in on the rival team.

As seen in the Twitter clips below, about an hour after the quake when things had calmed down, one player shot out a question of concern: “You okay [after] the earthquake?”

After writing this message, the player had to fend off the other team until they quickly realized what was written and started knocking out their own reply.

The players fended off bullets, one got shot, and a hole was blown in the wall while trying to help finish the reply, which reads, “Arigatou”, or “Thank you [for your concern].”

This is all very kind and heart-warming!
