Many users attempting to uninstall Escape from Tarkov report that the game doesn’t show up in their programs list through Windows. While it is a bit cheeky that Tarkov doesn’t install itself in a regular manner, it is a game that’s all about difficulty, so maybe the real way to Escape from Tarkov is to figure out how to uninstall it? On that note, here’s what you need to do:

Escape from Tarkov comes with an uninstaller executable, but it’s tucked away in the game’s install folder. On your computer, navigate to C:\Battlestate Games\BsgLauncher (or whichever drive you installed it on) and look for the uninstall executable. It may be called something like Unins000.exe or uninstall.exe.

Run the uninstaller executable to delete Escape from Tarkov from your computer. If you’re still not having any success uninstalling Escape from Tarkov, you can always just delete the folder containing the game (the Battlestate Games folder will work).
