Escape from Tarkov 0.13.5 Patch Notes and New Wipe

The Escape from Tarkov 0.13.5 Patch Notes just dropped. And there is a wipe. Here is everything you need to know.


Wake up. Escape from Tarkov Patch 0.13.5 just dropped and the servers will go up soon. And it's Thursday, so you know what that means. The big wipe is upon us. So let us collectively enjoy hunting season with these highlights from the Patch Notes and everything else you'll ever need to know.

Escape from Tarkov Wipes on August 10

After a rather tubulous last Wipe cycle, Tarkov has been in dire need of a rerun. And you know what they say, new Wipe, new Tarkov, and new me.

The Wipe happens every 6 months and resets all player progress back to square one. This means your carefully hoarded stash and weapons of mass destruction go back to where they belong, the wild Streets of Tarkov.

This also means that the game will be more active than ever, more people will go back out and do quests or chase after the big Rubel. And there is never a better time to get into Escape from Tarkov.

Escape from Tarkov 0.13.5 Patch Notes Highlights

  • Streets of Tarkov Expansion
    • The Streets of Tarkov have been expanded by yet another area

      • The boss dwells in the area of the car repair shop on “Streets of Tarkov”. The area is heavily defended, entrances are fortified with stationary machine guns and AGS, the paths are mined, and there are snipers on the roof of the car service center.
