R6 Siege Doktor's Curse 2021 event: Dates, collection, all skins, challenges, more

The Doktor's Curse event is back this year in Rainbow Six Siege with a beloved Halloween game mode, new skins, revamped Doktor's Curse collection, special challenges, and more.
It's October, or shall we say Spooktober, and that means Halloween events in every single popular video game.

And R6 Siege is no stranger to that as the Doktor's Curse event is back in 2021! First introduced during the Operation Ember Rise expansion in October of 2019, the Doktor's Curse event features special Halloween-themed skins, unique challenges, a special game mode called Hide and Seek, and much more.

The 2021 Doktor's Curse event will see the return of old skins from previous years, as well as several completely new Doktor's Curse uniforms and matching items. The Hide and Seek mode will also see some changes, and of course, there are several new bundles if you are planning on spending some money during the event.

Here's everything you need to know about the Doktor's Curse 2021 event.

This year's Doktor's Curse event is set to kick off on 12th October, and it will last for three weeks, until 2nd November 2021.

During this event, you will be able to play the Hide and Seek mode, purchase limited-time outfits and collections, and complete event-unique challenges.

Hide and Seek mode changes

The Hide and Seek mode is back and this time around it features several new operators both as Monsters and as Exterminators.

On the Monster's side, we have Aruni as a carnivorous plant, Melusi as a howling ghost, Smoke as a hybrid creature,  Frost as a demon, and Kapkan as a reaper.

For the exterminators, Lion, Jackal, and Sledge are joining survivors from the castle from the previous years. They all have unique loadouts, but don't have access to weapons. Rather, they wield Sledge's hammer in an effort to smash monsters' heads and also have access to unique gadgets: Jackal with his Eyenox Model III, Lion with his EE-ONE-D, Sledge using Pulse’s Cardiac Sensor.

Defenders have a special secondary ability called Nightstride which allows them to turn invisible for a short period of time while making them faster, but they do not have access to melee attacks during that time.

Doktor's Curse 2021 collection: All weapon skins and uniforms

Not only that, but each event uniform has its matching weapon skin and charm.
