Whether you’ve had it with the game, or you just don’t play it anymore and you want to free up space on your PC, you’re ready to uninstall Escape from Tarkov from your PC.
Most games that aren’t tied to game launcher (i.e. Steam, Epic Launcher, Riot Client, etc.) can be uninstalled from your Windows Control Panel via the Apps section. (Type in ‘Add or remove’ in the Windows Search bar and hit enter.)
But Escape from Tarkov doesn’t show up as an option in the Installed apps section for a lot of users, and for those that it does, uninstalling it from this section doesn’t always completely remove the game.
So, the best way to uninstall Escape from Tarkov is to do it directly from the uninstaller provided in the game’s files.
Here’s how to do so:
- Open File Explorer
- Go to C:\Battlestate Games\BsgLauncher
- Locate the uninstaller (either uninstall.exe or unins000.exe) and open it
- Follow the instructions to uninstall Escape from Tarkov
*Note: if you installed Escape from Tarkov in a different file location, you will not find the uninstaller using the path listed in the steps. If you don’t remember what path you installed Escape from Tarkov on, right-click the game’s icon on your desktop or start bar and click ‘Properties.’ That will give you the path of where the game is installed.
After that has finished, you can go back into File Explorer and see if C:\Battlestate Games\BsgLauncher is still there. If there’s anything left behind, just delete the entire Battlestate Games folder.
This should completely remove Escape from Tarkov from your PC. You have now escaped from Escape from Tarkov!
