The “Completed this raid too early” message that can appear at the end of a mission in Escape From Tarkov means that the player has exited the level without completing enough actions.

The full message reads:

“Attention! You have completed this raid too early. 

You have failed to gain enough experience. Therefore, you have received the Ran Through exit status.”

To gain enough experience, players will want to kill enemy scavs and loot objects. Do things within the level to earn XP.

Leaving a map early without interacting with enemies or looting is treated as a waste of a player slot within that server, so the “Ran Through” status is a way of gently nudging users in the right direction.
