Escape From Tarkov Upgrade Edition Guide (Step by Step)

Are you tired of having to complete the 6 Punisher quests to get your Epsilon pouch? That takes a long while and until you get it, you have to deal with the standard Alpha pouch that only has 4 slots. Trust me, I know the struggle way too well! On the bright side of things, you can upgrade your Escape From Tarkov Edition.

You can upgrade Escape From Tarkov Edition from the official EFT page where you will see the version of the game that you have purchased. You can scroll down the page and select the EFT version that you want (Left Behind Edition, Prepare for Escape Edition, and Edge of Darkness Limited Edition). There will be an “Upgrade” button beneath each edition. All you need to do is click “Upgrade” and then purchase the upgrade. All the items and bonuses included in the special edition will be emailed to your account instantly via an in-game System message.

Most EFT fans make the mistake of thinking that they need to purchase a new account in order to upgrade. Luckily this is not the case. Check out the full guide below to learn how to upgrade your Escape From Tarkov edition.

How to Upgrade Escape From Tarkov Edition

Everyone who starts playing Escape From Tarkov is shocked to find out that the Edge of Darkness Limited Edition costs 75 Euros. This is quite expensive, especially when compared to the Standard Edition which costs only 23 Euros. On the bright side of things, Battlestate Games is allowing players to upgrade their Escape From Tarkov accounts without reset. This means that you can upgrade the edition of your account without losing a single item or progress. Your “hours played” and other stats will remain active.

#1 Head over to;

#2 Log-in with your account info;

#3 Scroll down and select the Escape From Tarkov Edition you want to upgrade;

#4 Click on “Upgrade”;

What Does Escape From Tarkov Edge of Darkness Limited Edition Offer?

Are you tired of using a tiny 4-slot pouch? If that is the case, you will love the Edge of Darkness Limited Edition. The special edition comes with a massive Gamma that offers 9 slots of safe storage. Another important benefit of getting the Edge of Darkness Limited Edition is the fact that you will receive a huge size of stash (10 x 68) upgrade. You will never run out of space and have to stack backpacks on backpacks ever again. Below you can check out a full list of the benefits that this special edition of EFT offers:

  • Guaranteed instant access to closed beta;
  • Digital copy pre-load;
  • Huge size of stash (10×68);
  • Additional Equipment and resources and stash (Gamma, weapons, meds, fuel, and more);
  • Initially good standing with all in-game traders;
  • Unique in-game ID;
  • Free access to all subsequent DLCs (season pass).

One of the best benefits that upgrading your Tarkov Edition brings is an improved standing reputation with the traders. Luckily, there are some quick tips and tricks to improve trade reputation without spending a dime!

Should You Purchase Escape From Tarkov Edge of Darkness Limited Edition?

Are you a veteran player who has been around for a couple of wipes and want to make your experience more enjoyable? If that is the case, upgrading to Edge of Darkness Limited Edition is definitely a good idea. The upgrade will give you many advantages that will help you progress faster and have an overall upper hand over the competition during the new wipe.

Are you a new player who loves watching Tarkov streams and want to get started? In this situation, my advice is to purchase the Standard Edition of the game. This way, you will be able to spend a couple of days playing the game and seeing if you really like it. If you find yourself playing Tarkov hundreds of hours later, then that is when you should upgrade to a more expensive edition because you will not regret spending the money.

Will I Lose Everything If I Upgrade Escape From Tarkov?

If you started playing on a standard account version of Escape from Tarkov and want to upgrade, you don’t have anything to worry about. Your items, mission progress, and account stats will remain untouched. Battlestate Games will automatically send the new items to your account via in-game message when you upgrade the Tarkov edition, but your account will not be reset.

Not only will you receive all the new items into your stash via in-game message, but you will also receive a much bigger pouch, stash size, and improved reputation with traders. Even though the high-end Escape From Tarkov Editions are quite expensive, we can’t deny the fact that they do bring lots of benefits.
