Halloween has returned once again. With this festive and spooky season also comes the return of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’s beloved limited-time mode, Doktor’s Curse. Initially launched in October 2019, the limited-time event has easily become one of the most awaited modes players can relish every year.
With it returning in 2022, players will get to participate in the deadliest game of hide-and-seek Rainbow Six Siege has ever seen. The five-versus-five mode, Doktor’s Curse, officially hits live servers on 13th October 2022.
When Does Doktor’s Curse Start And End?
As aforementioned, Doktor’s Curse officially launches on 13th October 2022 and will be available to play until 2nd November 2022. This event period gives players three weeks to enjoy the limited-time event, even after Halloween has concluded.
But like all limited-time events, all cosmetics and challenges will be unavailable after 2nd November 2022.
What Can Players Expect From Doktor’s Curse Halloween Event?
Doktor’s Curse is a five-versus-five hide-and-seek limited-time mode players can partake. The event allows players to choose between two sides comprising various Operators. Those sides are the Hunters/Exterminators and the Monsters.

The Hunters are equipped with a sledgehammer and varying gadgets depending on which Operator is used. It’s up to the Hunters to find and seek out these Monsters and eliminate them to win the game.
Monsters can’t attack Hunters, so they must hide and survive using traps and an ability allowing them to become invisible called Nightstride. To win the game, the Monsters must completely eliminate the Hunters using various traps, hindering them or surviving until the time runs out.
