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.
R6 Siege Doktor's Curse 2021 schedule
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
The Doktor’s Curse collection now has a total of 48 event-exclusive items, including various uniforms and headgears of the new Doktor’s Curse event Monsters.
Not only that, but each event uniform has its matching weapon skin and charm.
New items in 2021 are Jackal, Lion, Aruni and Melusi monster skins (alongside weapons and charms), and they will be joining the Operators from previous years: Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion and Ela.
In addition, Kaid, while not present in the mode, also has his brand new bloodthirsty vampire skin, which is a part of this limited-time collection.
Doktor’s Curse Collection price
Doktor’s Curse Collection packs can be purchased for 300 R6 credits or 12500 Renown. Alternatively, you can buy all items from the collection as individual bundles for 1680 R6 Credits per bundle. A bundle includes a matching uniform, headgear, weapon skin, and charm.
