Escape From Tarkov is a first-person shooter game developed by Russian studio Battlestate Games, it was released in 2016 but is still technically in development, with more updates and content still to be added.


Just seconds after summit had picked up a kill in-game, he found himself lagging before being shot around a corner, prompting him to call out the developers to release their long-awaited 0.12 update.

“What, come on bro! One, I lagged. Two, I was behind the wall Three, suck my d*ck Tarkov.” Give me .12 already let’s go!” the streamer demanded, eager to leave the 0.11 patch version behind.

He then followed up, expressing that he wouldn’t be able to wait for updates, as some hardcore fans of the game have, “How long do we have to f***ing deal with this? It’s killing me, I’ve dealt with it for two weeks, how do people do this for years?”


As the games last major patch was back in early 2019, many fans have been eager for the 0.12 patch however in a recent post, developers had revealed that it was likely to take place in mid-October.

There has been no official date confirmed for the release of the 0.12 update, however, with summit1g putting pressure on the developers there might be more news soon to follow.

It’s not the first time he has vented his frustrations towards the FPS game, as he recently slammed the game’s UI for weapon loadouts.
