Battlestate Games claims that the licence agreement is violated when “illegal seepage of in-game code and databases” occurs.
Battlestate Games, the studio behind Escape From Tarkov, has officially pledged to permanently ban “all characters” found to have datamined “information that is purposefully concealed from users” and any players who discuss it.
“in-game accounts associated with datamining and/or sharing information stemming from datamining” will be banned, and “additional actions taken later,” the studio said in a statement, defining datamining as the process of “drawing out info from enormous datasets” and “prohibited seepage of in-game code and databases in order to extract info that is deliberately concealed from users.”

The proclamation adds, “From the time of this declaration’s release, we will begin doing something about it towards all the characters sharing the datamined info.” All game accounts linked to datamining and/or exchanging data obtained through datamining will be banned, and any platforms found to be complicit will be warned.
Additionally, “further actions” will be taken “later on,” though Battlestate did not specify what these might be.
We do this for the majority of our community so that they can take pleasure in the events, the game, and its development as the company intended. “We appreciate your unwavering support and look forward to Tarkov’s and your role in its future.”
The Escape from Tarkov team just announced the release of a public file detailing all of the banned accounts to date due of infidelity.
