When is the Escape From Tarkov wipe? Escape From Tarkov is a gritty hardcore shooter that’ll make you fiercely protective over your gear. From Kappa containers to meta M4s, every thing you own in the game comes at a price. But don’t get too attached because every now and then Battlestate Games wipes everyone’s progress, giving you – and your character – a new lease of life.

However, an Escape From Tarkov wipe is usually shrouded in secrecy, with Battlestate Games leaving most of its player base in the dark about when said wipe will actually happen. We know wipes come with major updates that happen every six months or so, but other than that, we know very little about the process.

However, it’s not all doom and gloom. While some players may dislike the wipe, starting an Escape From Tarkov journey from scratch again can be quite fun, especially if you dropped out for a couple of weeks and fell behind the curve.

When is the next Escape From Tarkov wipe?

It’s the question on everyone’s lips at the moment: just when is the next Escape From Tarkov wipe?

We don’t currently know the exact date, but given the last wipe took place on December 28 and wipes often happen every six months, we estimate that we’ll see the next Escape From Tarkov wipe around June 28. 

Of course, this could be moved earlier or later depending on the development cycle but one thing’s for sure: you’ll know about it when it happens. Pre-wipe events, which often encourage players to risk their lives for crazy loot or take on multiple Escape From Tarkov bosses at once are launched and they get more and more absurd as time goes on.

We’ll keep you posted on the next wipe – and the pre-wipe events – as they happen.

When was the last Escape From Tarkov wipe?

What is an Escape From Tarkov wipe?

An Escape From Tarkov wipe is essentially a full reset of the game. Everyone’s progress is wiped, from skills, inventories, missions, and stats.

These wipes usually happen every six months or so, and usually on a Thursday.

If you’ve never played Escape From Tarkov before, or you fell off the bandwagon mid-way through the last update, then post-wipe is the perfect time to play. Everyone is on the same level playing field in terms of loot, giving you – and your friends – the best possible chance of surviving your trips into Customs, Interchange, and more.

That’s everything we know so far about the next Escape From Tarkov wipe. If anything changes, we’ll update this guide, so stay tuned.
