Escape From Tarkov’s New Pre-Wipe Event Makes The Game More Like a Battle Royale

The skies over the Norvinsk region, the fictional battleground of Escape From Tarkov, have been churning with an extraordinary influx of airplane activity. In anticipation of an upcoming wipe, developers at Battlestate Games have launched an immersive pre-wipe event that has given EFT a distinct Battle Royale flair.

In this event, aircraft are dropping not just the usual loot but also altered drops, predominantly of weapon crates. This new approach to the loot mechanic is shaking up the gameplay, adding a layer of unpredictability and a dash of the survival-focused, winner-takes-all thrill that characterizes the Battle Royale genre.

The crates are not your typical weapon cases. Sealed and packed with various loot, from guns and armor to meta ammo, they are meant to be opened only within the safe confines of your stash. Reportedly, players can find 10pc, 20pc, and 50pc packs of all meta ammo in these boxes, marking a significant change in the game’s resource distribution.

Be careful, because everyone is running for the planes, so you should expect fierce action as long as you’re in the vicinity of the dropped supply package. I’d be happy to be watching the action.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
