It’s a question as old as the game itself—a meme within the community. When is the next Escape From Tarkov wipe? Once you’ve unlocked all traders, completed your quests, and achieved Kappa, what then? It’s time to look toward the future. Here is what we know about the next EFT wipe and how to make the most of wipe day!

When is the Next Escape From Tarkov Wipe?

While we don’t know the exact date, as Battlestate Games likes to keep such information private until the last minute, we know the next Escape From Tarkov wipe occurs in August 2024. We’re a few short months away from a significant content wipe, which will completely reset everyone’s progress. It’s a fresh start, a chance to try out new builds and playstyles and perhaps find a competent squad to play with!

Your typical EFT wipe lasts approximately 200 days, with some a little shorter and some a bit longer, but most right around that timeframe. It’s the perfect amount of time for even more casual players to make significant progress, test out new content, and explore the various maps.

How to Survive Escape From Tarkov Wipe Day

If you intend to take part in wipe day festivities, prepare yourself!

  • Whenever the game preps for a content wipe, Battlestate introduces a variety of in-game events that alter loot values, increase boss spawns, and change fundamentals about the overall gameplay. You’ll want to check in on these events to learn more before diving headfirst into a match.
  • You’ll face many sweaty streamers and hardcore players who will likely surpass your level and gear on day one, so don’t sweat firefights. The early game usually has some of the best gunfights, so enjoy them and take everything in stride.
  • Remember to take an occasional break. From personal experience, it can be easy to endure tunnel vision as you set yourself a goal for wipe day and ignore everything else to achieve said objective.
