Escape from Tarkov has gained massive recognition for its realistic and hardcore gameplay. Players need to battle and survive on the maps where no one is safe. One mistake and you’re dead.

So if you’re wondering what the Crown means in Escape from Tarkov, then you’re not alone. This has confused a lot of players and they have been looking for an answer.
Although those “difficult to complete raids” can be intimidating, Escape from Tarkov has a lot to offer and can be a paradise for hardcore FPS fans. The players need to face the difficulty of the game head-on and try to be victorious. The game is still in development and the developers keep adding new things with each update. Wondering what the crown beside your friend or a random player means? In this article we will tell you what the crown means in Escape from Tarkov.
What does The Crown mean in Escape from Tarkov?
Now to answer your question, the crown you might have seen beside several players’ names, indicates their game edition. Well, you may already know that there are four editions of Escape from Tarkov – Standard, Left Behind, Prepare for Escape, and Edge of Darkness. So, the players who own the Edge of Darkness or the EOD edition of the game, have a crown beside their name, and a unique in-game ID. The only purpose it serves is to symbolize players who have the most premium edition of the game. The Edge of Darkness edition comes with a few perks which make it worth the $140 you pay for it. These perks can greatly help players during the early game. These range from free access to all DLC’s to unique in-game IDs. Below we have mentioned some of the perks that you will get with the Edge of Darkness edition of Escape from Tarkov.
1) You will get instant access to the closed beta.
2) Digital copy pre-load.
3) Huge size of stash (10×68).
4) You will receive loads of additional resources and equipment in stash.
5) You will have a good reputation among all in-game traders initially.
6) Unique in-game ID (crown beside the name).
7) Free access to all DLCs.
The unique ID can be seen in the global chats in the game. It is also now visible in the game lobbies and in the friends’ list. With the early game advantage EOD players get, they are able to level up quicker. Huge stash size is the biggest reward EOD players get; the basic stash size is 10×28 for EFT players. However, buying other editions – Left Behind and Prepare for Escape – also boosts stash size and includes satisfactory content. In the end, it all boils down to survival and raid skills!
