It seems that players have finally waited long enough: Wipe is incoming.

Just an hour ago, Nikita, the C.E.O. of Battlestate Games posted a Ready for wipe Tweet, and since then, the players have reported multiple airdrops happening on many maps within one raid, which is not typical, and this airdrop event marks the first pre-wipe event.

Pre-wipe events usually consist of having Raiders spawning on all maps, Bosses changing locations, The Lab being accessible without the keycard, prices going down, and Flea Market closure.

Just after Nikita's Tweet, Battlestate Games posted a radar picture confirming the Airdrop event:

The exact date of the wipe is still unknown but we will get a date in the next couple of days for sure, either via hidden Tweet messages or via Traders. Pre-wipe events usually don't last longer than 7 days, and we could possibly see the wipe happening between Thursday and Friday, as most wipes in the past have happened on a Thursday.

If that is the case, don't make any arrangements for the weekend, and get ready to level up from start once again. 

If this is your first wipe, we have a  guide on how to level up fast, which might interest you.

If you're an experienced player, have fun these last couple of days and burn out all the gear you had stored for previous months.

Happy pre-wipe events to all!
