In 1947, an event took place in the US state of Kentucky that turned the world of crime upside down. Legendary thief Al Capone entered one of America’s most secure vaults. Knowing that his life was about to end, Capone had the brilliant idea of hiding all the stolen loot in plain sight. The place of his choice? The Fort Knox storage facility.
The gold vault was considered the safest place in the world: its walls were made of granite and covered with a layer of concrete, and a 22-ton door protected the entrance. To open the door, you need the code, which is divided among several people for additional security.
In the event of an attack, autonomous life support and power supply systems are in place, which also ensure the supply of food and water. The security of the complex was such that the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom were stored at Fort Knox during World War II.
Al Capone made a huge fortune from robberies and fraud, but this burglary wasn’t about money. There was one thing that was of great value to him. A coin given to him by his father as a child and kept throughout his adult life. The Bubu Coin. This ancient coin has been passed down from generation to generation through the Capone bloodline. The legendary criminal wanted to hide her so that no one could find her for centuries.
Al Capone made his way to Fort Knox, deposited the coin there and locked it away. Now the legend is confirmed, and the entire underworld is after the coin.
Do you have what it takes to steal the Bubu Coin?
Then take part in a battle with the entire underworld! Infiltrate the impregnable Fort Knox and be the first to claim the legendary coin.
