Ubisoft has officially revealed that the Rainbow Six Siege community’s favorite Halloween event, Doktor’s Curse, is returning once again.

This year for Halloween, the ‘Doktor is out,’ and he’s brought all his monster friends with him. These monsters have brought some new friends with them but have no fear; the Exterminators have returned, and they, too, have brought some monster friends of their own to put a stop to the nightmare.

When will R6: Siege Halloween event start?

After the success of last year’s early Halloween release, Ubisoft made the same call this year. Starting on October 13th, it will run for a total of three weeks, concluding on November 2nd.

Originally released in 2019, the Doktor’s Curse event retains the same core gameplay elements. Read on for more information below (via Ubisoft).


Set in the legendary Doktor’s Castle, Doktor’s Curse returns with its iconic Hide-and-Seek game mode.

In this asymmetrical game mode you will be either a Hunter chasing the Monsters with your Hammer and tracking gadgets, or a Monster, hiding to survive throughout the night. This year, a whole new collection of Creatures joins the horrific roster and the previous collections are also returning!

Things are about to get spooky…


The Hunters have brought ghastly new aides to quell the threat near the old castle, while the Monsters have swelled their ranks with newly discovered horrors. Oryx will join the Hunters while Azami, Nomad, Thorn and Gridlock will fight for the Monsters.

Play to discover all the new horror themed skins this event has to offer!


During 4 rounds of 2 minutes, you will either be a Hunter or a Monster, and none of them have access to any firearm!

Hunters must slay all the Monsters, but can only rely on their trusty Hammer alongside tracking gadgets: Pulse’s Cardiac Sensor, Jackal’s Eyenox Model III, Lion’s EE-ONE-D and Oryx’s Remah Dash.

On the other hand, Monsters will have to outwit Hunters and remain hidden throughout the round to survive. While not armed, they will be equipped with trap devices and the Nightstride ability, which will allow them to boost their speed and become invisible.


Doktor’s Curse: The Returned brings a brand-new collection with uniforms, headgears and weapon skins for all Operators available to play during the limited-time event.

The previous Doktor’s Curse Events collection from 2019 and 2021 are also being brought back, with all their former content, including the non-playable Monster Kaid. Each of them has received a fresh injection of blood in the form of brand-new operator card portrait and if you purchased one or several bundles from this past event, the corresponding Operator Card will be added to your monstrous collection for free!

Observing from last year, we can predict that Doktor’s Curse Collection packs can be purchased for 300 R6 credits or 12500 Renown each.
