To get Twitch drops in Escape from Tarkov, the first thing you need to do is obvious; make sure you own the game! You can "pre-order" a copy here, which gives you immediate access to the game in its current beta state.

The Tarkov Twitch drops will be running from Thursday, June 11 at 6 AM EDT (3 AM PDT, 10 AM BST) till Monday, June 22 at the same time. To connect your Twitch account to your Tarkov account, you need to go to your Escape from Tarkov profile page on the main website.

Along the right-hand side navbar, there will be a list of actions. Find the one that says "Link Twitch Account", click on it, and you'll be redirected to Twitch.tv. Log in, authorise the connection, and voila! The two accounts will be linked.

To receive the Twitch drops, you need to watch certain streamers who have drops enabled. You can find a complete list here on the official Tarkov blog post including who is streaming on each day. Some of the streamers include Jake Tucker on June 11, Sacriel on June 12, Anthony Kongphan on June 13, and many more.

According to the post on the official website, drops will be guaranteed "at certain intervals", including weapons, equipment, and rare items. So tune in frequently and you'll be storming Labs in no time!
