With Halloween looming at us like a mummy from its tomb, Rainbow Six Siege is getting in on the spooky-season fun with the Doktor’s Curse Halloween event. The event takes place in a unique haunted-house map, and the Operators will be getting a bit of a spooky makeover as well.
In this special mode, one team needs to hide and survive, while the other team hunts them down like the vicious monsters they are. The defenders need to try and live until the end of the round, and will only have a few gadgets and no weapons with which to defend themselves. They do have access to a unique ability that will make them invisible, and speed up their movements, for a short duration.
Attackers will have unique gadgets and some rather nasty looking melee weapons that they will be trying to use to snap the spines of their prey. Smoke, Kapkan, Frost, Lesion, Ela, Doc, and Bandit all get new skins, and skins from last year will also be available once again.
Anyone who racks up 20 kills while playing the Doktor’s Curse Map will get an exclusive pack containing one of the 28 different Halloween items, and anyone who wins 13 rounds in the Doktor’s Curse playlist will get a second pack. Everyone who logs in between Oct. 23 and Nov. 6 will get a free pack for doing so. Players will also be able to purchase the Doktor’s Curse pack for 300 R6 Credits or 12 500 Renown, with a 10 percent discount for Y4 Pass owners.
The event is live in the game right now. So if you want to smash some heads in, hunt some willing victims, and earn yourself some sweet free loot, now is the time to log in and get playing.
