How To Fix “Bad Gateway” Error in Escape From Tarkov

Players trying to sign in and launch this title may find themselves stuck with a Bad Gateway error, which means the game cannot connect to the servers for this particular title. The first thing that players will want to do is relaunch the program, as it could be a temporary issue plaguing the game. If this does not work, the next thing players will want to do is restart their PC.

While waiting for the PC to come back online, players will want to restart their router, as well. This will rule out any sort of internet issue as the blame for this particular error. Players may also want to keep their eyes peeled on the official Escape from Tarkov Twitter Page, as they will give updates in regards to new patches and updates to the game.

Depending on the speed of your internet, players could always uninstall and reinstall the game to see if that will help with the particular “Bad Gateway” error, although this seems unlikely. However, at this point, there really isn’t anything to lose.

The final step in this whole process is having patience.
