The latest pre-wipe event has dropped in the form of the Escape From Tarkov stims event, but it is a little bit more hidden than the rest. In the days before a new Escape From Tarkov wipe the devs like to play around with the rules a bit, creating some intriguing challenges and effects. So, to find out the full details of the Escape From Tarkov stims event, make sure to read the rest of this guide.

What Is The Escape From Tarkov Stims Pre Wipe Event?

The Escape From Tarkov stims event is the fifth pre wipe feature to be introduced in patch 12.12.30, and is likely one of the final few before the new Escape From Tarkov wipe. While usually these events are accompanied by a lore-relevant tweet from the official account, this one has gone rather unannounced, leaving it to the player base to figure out all of the details.

Firstly, the main change brought forward for this event is the shift in effects for various stims in the game. The "Obdolbos" cocktail injector is the most affected, with it now giving +20 to all skills with a single use alongside no negative effects.

Other stims and injectors have also had their negative effects completely removed, and these are the following:

  • 3BTG
  • AHF1M
  • Adrenaline
  • L1
  • MULE
  • Meldonin
  • P22
  • Propital
  • SJ1
  • SJ6
  • Zagustin

Another effect of the Escape From Tarkov stims event is that Therapist now has lots of new barters for almost all of the available injectors in the game, allowing you to try them out if you have the required items to exchange.

While we don't have a definitive answer on how long the Escape From Tarkov stims event will last, we do know that it will be no longer than a couple of days.

While the easy answer is to say that it will go away with the new wipe, that is both still an unknown date, and it also could be earlier than that. While most pre wipe events persist until the wipe ends, some do end prematurely, so make sure to get all your stim use in before it finishes.

So, that rounds up all of the details for the Escape From Tarkov stims event, letting you know what has been changed and when it is likely to end. If you want to know what the Escape From Tarkov best settings are though, don't miss our guide for a full list and explanation.
