Plague Doctor is a Treasure Hunter promotion that started on 25 October 2018 and lasted five days until 29 October 2018 at 2359. Players complete a series of tasks similar to previous events like Faceless Assassins and Zodiac Training. The player can open Treasure Hunter or speak to the Plague Doctor to receive a plague task list. This list can be clicked to reference the tasks in need of completion and potential rewards.

After finishing all the tasks from the list five times, stamps won on Treasure Hunter have no further purpose other than cashing them out or redeeming them for a medium prismatic lamp.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When completing the initial Doctor's Visit task (this does not appear on prestige version of this task), the player refers to themselves as "Mantis Toboggan" which is a reference to the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
- The Home Remedy task may be a reference to the Contagion task from the Faceless Assassins event, where you can help create the affliction that the plague doctor now tries to cure.
