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

When is the next Escape from Tarkov wipe?

While we don’t know the exact date, we do know that the next Escape from Tarkov wipe will take place in August 2024, as Battlestate Games likes to keep such information under wraps until the last minute. We’re months away from a major content wipe , which will completely reset everyone’s progress. It’s a fresh start, a chance to try out new builds and playstyles, and maybe even find a competent squad to play with!

Your typical EFT wipe lasts about 200 days, some a little shorter and some a little longer, but most stay within that time frame. This is the perfect time for more casual players to make significant progress, test out new content, and explore different maps.

How to Escape Tarkov’s Wipe Day

If you plan to participate in the Wipe Day festivities, prepare yourself!

  • Whenever a game prepares for a content wipe, Battlestate introduces a variety of in-game events that change loot values, increase boss spawns, and change the basics about the overall gameplay. Check out these events to find out more before you head into the match.
  • You’ll run into a lot of sweaty streamers and hardcore players on day one who will likely outclass your level and gear, so don’t sweat the firefights. The early game usually has some of the best gunfights, so enjoy them and take it all in stride.
  • Remember to take occasional breaks. From personal experience, tunnel vision becomes easier to endure because you set a goal for wipe day and ignore everything else to achieve said goal.
