Update June 28th – Wipe coming tomorrow
Attention: This information is not fully confirmed!
A few moments ago, user @NoiceGuy_ announced via Twitter that the wipe was coming tomorrow and Battlestate Games even confirmed this. We cannot find an official statement on this, the tweet was allegedly quickly deleted by the Escape from Tarkov developer.
Confirmation from BSG this is the wipe TOMORROW #EscapefromTarkov

That’s for sure: What the devs have confirmed via Twitter is tomorrow’s server downtime from 9:00 a.m. of 5 hours for patch 0.12.12.30. 5 hours of server down sounds a lot like a big update and a wipe, even if BSG itself doesn’t talk about it.
Tomorrow, June 29, at 08:00 BST/03:00 EDT we are planning to install patch 0.12.12.30. The installation will take approximately 5 hours, but may be extended if required. The game will not be accessible during this period.#EscapefromTarkov

Developers announce pre-wipe event – It’s Raining Loot
What does the event post show? The developers of Tarkov have shared an image of a plane radar. On it, you can see countless — well, planes — and according to some users, this clearly indicates an increased occurrence of loot-rich airdrops.
What is the pre-wipe event? In fact, fans are said to be right about their theory. Streamer SScorpionn shared a video via Twitter this morning that illustrates the “airdropocalypse” well: in a few seconds, a dozen planes darken the sky and drop enough airdrops for the entire lobby. The purpose of this event is apparently to prepare for the upcoming wipe and update 13 for Escape From Tarkov.
When will the wipe for Tarkov finally come?
It is not clear when exactly the next wipe will be. However, we can get an approximate timeframe based on the event that started today. In the past, pre-wipe events in Escape From Tarkov lasted about two weeks. The airdrop event might be joined by other events in the coming days and weeks. As soon as that happens, we’ll let you know and update this article.

So you might be able to expect a wipe as early as next week. As usual, you will have to start from scratch and shoot your way through all quests and maps of the survival shooter. An important element is finding keys, scav bosses, loot and much more on the various maps:

Update Day 2: Next event – Sanitar fiddles with stim formula of Obdolbos
What’s coming in the event? Day two of the pre-wipe event in Escape From Tarkov: Today, Scav boss Sanitar is tinkering with the formula of his famous Stim Obdolbos. This Stim is called Obdolbos and improves all of your character’s stats by 20 to 50 points. The big downside: in 5% of all cases, the Stim lowers your life regeneration to -3000. In other words, after 2 seconds, you’re just toast.
We have even more information about this event in a separate article that dates back to December 2021. The current Tarkov event works exactly the same way.
Update Day 3: All bosses on Customs
It’s Day 3 of the Escape From Tarkov pre-wipe event, and now the spectacle shifts to the Customs map. All scav bosses are on the map at the same time. The spawn rate is 100%.
There is nothing more to report about today’s event. As always, we invite you to join our socials to make sure you don’t miss anything. Or add this post to your bookmark, so you can always check back to see if anything has changed!
Update Day 4: Technical update
There was nothing new on the 4th day of the pre-wipe event, just a technical update of about 3 MB with an associated downtime of 2 hours.
Players feared it was already the wipe, but that wasn’t the case. The pre-wipe event continues.
Update Day 5: Retailers don’t want your money anymore
On day 5 of the pre-wipe event, BSG posted a new video where a soldier puts loot in a bag and just throws money away. What does that mean?
The traders in the game don’t want your money anymore. Only items that you offer to dive against other items are listed. So money is currently worthless. So ammo gets pretty scarce and expensive when you have to buy it from the flea market.
Update Day 6: Labs are free
On the 6th day of the pre-wipe event in Escape from Tarkov, the developers sent us a new video via Twitter. In this video, we hear a radio message between a couple of raiders who obviously need backup as the security system is down.

This means that Raiders are scattered throughout Labs, and Labs are currently free for everyone to enter.
So far, everything is going according to plan. 2 events are therefore still open if BSG at least does what they always do before the wipe actually takes place. Raiders on all maps and the 99% off event.
Update Day 8: Everything’s 99% off!
Nothing special on Day 7. But now on Day 8, every Trader is unlocked and everything is 99% off.
