BoomTV hosted the first-ever $10,000 Escape from Tarkov edition of their fan-favorite Code Red tournament series, featuring some big-name streamers like Dr Disrespect, summit1g, xQc, DrLupo, and more.

Escape from Tarkov has undoubtedly become one of the hottest games over the past couple of months as more and more top streamers have started playing the game regularly.

Naturally, online tournament hosts BoomTV have added EFT to their popular Code Red series – and considering that the first-person multiplayer shooter is known for its hardcore, complex, and very detailed gameplay, it was fascinating to see how the competition played out.

Who won the Code Red Escape from Tarkov tournament?

While the leaderboards ebbed and flowed throughout the seven-hour event, Dr Lupo led the pack in terms of overall Rouble count at the end of the seven-hour marathon. However, as each streamer sold their acquired loot and the final standings were updated, the gap closed at the top and it seemed as though his winning efforts might have been in jeopardy.

As final results were unveiled Pestily clinched the top spot while Klean fell into second place and Dr Lupo dropped all the way to third.

Code Red Escape from Tarkov tournament format & rules

Each of the eight players competed for seven hours, after which they had up to one hour to sell all of their items to Dealers. After all of the items were sold, the number of Roubles each player earned is what determined the final placements, with the highest-earning streamer taking home the victory.


  • Players start on new (level 40) accounts with ₽1,000,000 (1M) Roubles, 1 Labs keycard, 1 Gamma container and 1 dogtags case.

  • All Dealers except Jaeger are unlocked by default. Player can unlock Jaeger during the event.

  • Players can PMC & Scav raid.

  • Players CANNOT do “Hatchling” raids.

  • Players CANNOT raid on Factory.

  • Players CANNOT buy and sell on “Flea Market”, but they can use the “Flea Market” menu for Dealers.

Dog Tags:

  • Dog tags value: ₽200,000 per tag (regardless of level)

  • Players cannot sell dog tags to Dealers. They must keep them.

  • Dog tags will be counted at the end of playtime (7pm PST). The number of dog tags will be multiplied by ₽200,000.

  • Dog tags’ value will be added to each players’ Roubles value.

    • For example, if a player sells all their items and has ₽10,000,000 (10M) Roubles, if they have 10 dog tags, it will be 10*₽200,000 = ₽2,000,000 (2M). Therefore, ₽10M + ₽2M = ₽12M Roubles.

Battlestate GamesThe player who earned the most Roubles after seven hours of play, won the Code Red Escape from Tarkov tournament.

Battlestate Games have always been about building a fun community, but now they’re letting players influence the game design itself by launching the Escape from Tarkov Early Test Server. 

Escape from Tarkov’s developers, Battlestate Games, has always had a reputation for communicating with the game’s fanbase. By doing this, they’ve formed a dedicated community of players and fans who truly live and breathe the game.

These fans know that the updates for Tarkov are few and far between, normally coming in big chunks instead of occasional drip-fed updates. The announcement of new guns in early November certainly caused a stir, especially with Streets of Tarkov still looming somewhere on the horizon.

To add to the excitement, Tarkov’s devs have come up with an interesting way of including their fans in the development process: the Early Test Server.

What is the Early Test Server?

The Tarkov early test program works similarly to the PBE in LoL or Experimental Mode in Overwatch. As Battlestate’s tweet says, the ETS allows players to “test and run new features, content, and updates before they appear in the game, and allow players to contribute to the world of Escape from Tarkov.”

Additionally, it will help the devs identify any bugs or fixes in a tighter timeframe. Therefore, it will help ensure that any new updates are as polished as possible.

How to access the Early Test Server

In order to participate in the Early Test Server, you must have an active copy of Escape from Tarkov.

To become a part of the Early Test server, simply follow these steps:

  • Activate the launcher.
  • Fill in the ETS form.
  • Await notification that you’ve been selected.

It’s great to see the game’s devs reaching out to their fans to ensure that the Tarkov experience is the best it can be. So, if you fancy shaping the face of Tarkov, apply for the ETS: The possibilities are limitless!
