Following the release of update 0.12.6.7456 for hardcore tactical FPS Escape From Tarkov, the developers from Battlestate Games held the planned progress wipe. As usual, a group of players wanted to reduce the time it takes to gear up from zero by unfair means but the team was ready for such a turn of events. The developers have taken to Twitter to reveal that over 5000 Escape From Tarkov cheaters have been banned from the game and will no longer spoil the experience of fellow gamers.
Just now, BattlEye has banned over 3,000 cheaters in #EscapefromTarkov. We decided that we will now let you know about large BE ban waves

About Escape From Tarkov:
Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore and realistic online first-person action RPG/Simulator with MMO features and a story-driven walkthrough.
The players will have to experience living in the skin of one of the mercenaries who survived the initial stage of the Tarkov conflict. After choosing one of the sides – USEC or BEAR – the player’s character starts to make his way out of the city. Tarkov is sealed off by UN and Russian military, supply chains are cut, communication with operational command is lost, and in these conditions everyone has to make his own choices of what to do and how to get out of the chaos-ridden metropolis.
