Escape from Tarkov is currently running a promo where you can get some in-game drops for watching the game on the streaming platform Twitch.
This guide shows you which requirements you have to fulfill – and how you can get the drops.

How long does the event run?

The event will run from shortly after Christmas, starting on December 29, 2022, until the New Year, January 07, 2023.


There are some simple requirements for you to be able to get the Escape from Tarkov drops:

  • You need to have an Escape from Tarkov account (website).
  • Your account must own a version of Escape from Tarkov, it doesn’t matter which version you have.
  • You need a account.

This is how you connect the accounts

  • Log in to the official Escape from Tarkov website.
  • Visit your profile page.
  • If you own a version of Escape from Tarkov, you will find the “Link Twitch Account” button on the right side of the page.
  • Click on the button and you will be redirected to, where the page will then ask for your consent to link to your Twitch account.
  • If you have done everything correctly, you will now find the new purple “Unlink Twitch Account” button on the Escape from Tarkov profile page.
  • If it looks like this (red frame) you have done everything correctly.

Once you’ve followed all the steps and linked your accounts, all you have to do is watch one of the many streamers participating in the promo.

You will see if you did everything right when you join a stream of a participating streamer. You will see a notification above the chat window that you can receive drops here.
If you do not see this notification, disconnect from their Escape from Tarkov profile page and repeat the process.

(You can also tell if a streamer is participating if you see the tag “Drops activated” under the stream).

Participating streamers

Similar to previous events, there are several days of action in the Twitch Drops event.

On the first day, December 29, any streamer playing Escape from Tarkov can participate in the Twitch Drops promotion.

On the following days, from December 29, 2022 to January 06, 2023, only certain streamers will be unlocked for the promotion.
You can find them either via a corresponding note in their stream title or via the list of participants.

You can find the list of participants on the following page by clicking on the corresponding date: List of participants

On the last day, 07 January2023 all streamers who stream Escape from Tarkov can participate in the action again.

This is how long you have to watch for the drops

Every day you can get a maximum of five Escape from Tarkov drops while watching on Twitch.

  • Drop 1: Common Item 1 – After 2.5 hours of watching
  • Drop 2: Rare Item 1 – After another 2.5 hours of watching
