I can't purchase anything from traders unless its through flea. Says I don't have any money.

ID: hfbcfu7

Is the auto-fill option ticked at the bottom when you select an item from traders?

ID: hfbgikr

Ah man, I'm an idiot. I never changed auto fill so I thought it was a bug. Thanks

I just wanted to say i finally found killa and killed him, took me like 20+ raids to just locate him, luckily i killed him first try AND made it out to the extract, longest most tense run to railway ever with his damn helmet

Fuck this game and server disconnects. 2 in the same raid, came back from the 2nd dead.

8 : Anonymous2021/10/05 02:17 ID: hffl7jc

So you didn't come back?

Check the ping to the servers you are playing on. Dont have auto selected because it could put you into a raid that will get you kicked for ping

11 : Anonymous2021/10/06 17:34 ID: hfmmnoo

I just have three closest to me selected. I'm in central us. Didn't get any bad ping alerts, just immediate disconnects

I know there was a recent loot buff and some other changes recently, but just now I just randomly checked some resort key I got through the scav case (West 222) and the thing was worth like 200k right now. I checked all the others, that even before the dynamic loot changes weren't actually worth that much (at least at the time most of those keys were pretty much the lowest price possible). And now not only are about 3 keys or so in the 200k range, but a bunch of them jumped in price as well.

But also checking the other general keys It's like only the shoreline keys have shot up in price, was there any specific change to shoreline loot?

13 : Anonymous2021/10/07 13:56 ID: hfq965z

If i remember correctly alot of the lose loot spawns got moved into other rooms (ledx,bitcoins etc..)

Dont know which rooms tho

I'm new just hit lvl 10 and keep running into the following:

Dudes running sonic speeds across maps Me getting shot through walls Me spawining and getting shot through a metal ship container Having some lewt and lose connection to server

But! I did jump a guy on woods that had the sickest guns and armor and I pew pewed him and then got shot and limped back to outskirts, made extraction by 3 secs and that made it all worth it. I just want to stop being shot through shit.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/07 15:57 ID: hfqpzsk

Dudes running sonic speeds across maps

max strength is pretty common now, you can get some PMCS zoomin

Me getting shot through walls

Some walls can be shot thru, depending on the wall. Could be hackers, depends on the map, you could also just be getting shot from an odd angle. I've killed pmcs from some stupid spots and i 100% bet they thought i was hacking.

Me spawining and getting shot through a metal ship container

Some spawns are scuffed and experience players know where you spawn, and if you are nearby another pmc spawn, some are literally in eye sight of each other (lookin at you interchange). I think metal shipping containers can be penetrated, not 100% sure thought

Having some lewt and lose connection to server

Welcome to tarkov.

I'd also probably avoid woods, map is too big, and everyone will be chadded out looking for long range headshots for the quest SBIH

16 : Anonymous2021/10/07 17:29 ID: hfr3lyg

I get that. I dunno man. Maybe i'm running to dysync or something too. I think I have run into legit hacks, not so much this week though. I just almost got out with some crazy guns nv goggles full heavy setup and I got popped running for extract 🙁

As long as I can avoid server boots I can deal with other stuff.

Asking about npc behavior, do pmc become tagged and cursed if they are the only real player on the map? I just ran a factory pmc raid with a friend, he got killed, I killed the guy that killed him, one other guy killed the other 2 players then I watched him get clapped by a scav. All within 3 minutes of the raid starting. Then as soon as I was alone, I didn't even have time to loot, a metric ton of scavs spawned and I booked it to gate 3. They pushed me at the extract I dropped 3 before I had to reload and got got by an npc running 366 AP. This all happened in the first 5 minutes of raid and I got pushed in less time than it took for the exfil timer. What was all that?

19 : Anonymous2021/10/03 08:13 ID: hf7a3wd

Someone said to me the other day that player scavs are spawned to maintain a level. So when the pmcs died PScavs replaced them.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/03 08:48 ID: hf7ct4a

That makes sense. And I don't think the servers are very strong so they can only put in as many ai as there are not players. If that makes sense. But these were all ai that hunted me down... It was just strange behavior. Never seen that even offline.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/04 14:18 ID: hfcpwa7

So since this event will be temporary and my level 15 ass will most likely not be level 20 before the event ends, what are some must-buy items that I should grab before it ends? I have about 6 mill rubs.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/05 04:04 ID: hffx4zj

If you got some spare money, I suggest you do Mechanic’s gunsmith tasks. You can just buy guns and parts from flea. (I recommend looking up YouTube guides on specifics) It nets you good amount of experience and trader reps!

23 : Anonymous2021/10/04 14:54 ID: hfcupzz

Is it only an event? Personally I'd get optics/attachments/ammo, or stuff to build out your hideout. Leveling up your hideout might allow you to make items to turn in for quests.

Oh. If you have to gunsmith quests, knock those out.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/04 15:07 ID: hfcwiol

Heard a few videos saying it was an event and would be over. Ammo for sure, I grabbed a few document cases, stuck on gunsmith 4 because people don't sell one of the attachments I need.

25 : Anonymous2021/10/05 01:23 ID: hffeobv

I don't think that it's an event, but stock up on ammo and items to barter for ammo. And then hideout materials if you have money left.

Can I buy this game if I have i5 6500, gtx 1060 6gb and 8gb ram?

27 : Anonymous2021/10/05 04:06 ID: hffxbsi

I had similar settings when I bought this game. Terrible stutters everywhere and it was impossible to fight other players. Then I just got an extra 8gb ram and the problem disappeared.

28 : Anonymous2021/10/05 10:48 ID: hfgq8kt

Cool! What settings do you use?

29 : Anonymous2021/10/05 09:18 ID: hfgk7g9

The game is very ram-heavy. I was sitting at 16 relatively fine, but it used almost all of it. Still, apart from having to clear the cache (restarting the game) every few matches it was very much playable.

Luckily, RAM is not the most expensive part to upgrade

30 : Anonymous2021/10/05 16:58 ID: hfhzi6z

Thanks. I am planning to upgrade to i5 10600k and 16gb ram 3600 in a month or two.

Just wanted to play it with friends before that but I guess I’ll have to wait.

31 : Anonymous2021/10/05 03:53 ID: hffw2h3

yeah but youll be struggling with the limited ram so expect some stutters

32 : Anonymous2021/10/05 15:41 ID: hfho06e

i have the same GPU and it does ok. you'll need ram like the others said

33 : Anonymous2021/10/05 16:57 ID: hfhzadc

Thanks. Do you have the same CPU? I5 6500? I want to change it to i5 10600k in a couple of months but want to play EFT with my friends before then.

34 : Anonymous2021/10/05 23:24 ID: hfjgxxu

Do you not lose scav rep as a player scav for killing another player scav if they attack a boss? I was in reserve at train station and there was a huge fight and I killed a person that looked like a pmc shooting at the boss, turned out they were a scav… I got freaked out because I thought they might have been a boss guard or something, but when I extracted I gained the 0.01 rep… did I not lose anything because they had attacked the boss of did I get luck and the boss finished them instead?

35 : Anonymous2021/10/06 12:22 ID: hflgks4

If a player scav attacks a scav/boss first and you kill them, it gives you 0.01 rep.

36 : Anonymous2021/10/06 05:42 ID: hfkmzs8

Hey all, been a while since I’ve played so I’ve got 2 big questions: is hacking/bots still out of control? Any estimates on the next wipe? Thanks!

37 : Anonymous2021/10/06 12:21 ID: hflgfid

My main is customs and I think I’ve only ran into 1-2 hackers in the past 5 months. Next wipe should be around Christmas from what I’ve heard.

38 : Anonymous2021/10/07 02:39 ID: hfomql8

Much better situation now compared to 3-4 weeks ago. Try it out!

PMC reserve is ruined by too many player scavs. This game isn’t cod zombies

40 : Anonymous2021/10/07 13:29 ID: hfq5qx4

is there anyway to stop the stutters unless I restart after every raid it's just this and its terrible.

i7-7700 rtx 2060 16gb ram

With 6.0+ Scav karma it is possible to get SCAV with thermal scope. Flir this time. I have 10.75 fence rep atm.

44 : Anonymous2021/10/07 15:17 ID: hfqk38c

You don't even have to have 6.0+ rep. Can be any rep, just more likely with good rep

45 : Anonymous2021/10/07 15:44 ID: hfqo048

we dont see names etc etc blah blah realistic the fuck scavs snitching our names telepathically to all scavs around the world so they know about our karma or actions>?

46 : Anonymous2021/10/07 15:49 ID: hfqoshe

So am I losing my mind or are the craftable AFAK's just not on the Medstation menu sometimes? I've made some there, but then other times the recipe just doesn't show up at all.

47 : Anonymous2021/10/07 15:50 ID: hfqoykz

Why they remove the extract forgiveness? I has an mia while looted up with 1.5 seconds left. I guess I was just too greedy. Killed 2 pmcs on admin side of customs and had to go to crossroads

WTF is up with news articles saying "new crafts" and "changed crafts" when mine clearly arent changed and nothing new.

Found out two things on reserve yesterday, scavs and raiders seem to be able to path through the squishy water under reserve, and TWO the water doesn't slow them down.

50 : Anonymous2021/10/03 20:48 ID: hf9rura

Tarkov feels like a dead end game. Quests aren't interesting, combat isn't very good, and everyone just runs high end gear with bullets that pierce everything, so the game just becomes a who can shoot/spam first game.

Also the factory meta of endless .45 Vectors with .45 ACP AP is just a joke. Skill died a long time ago, just hold LMB and spam is all that matters in Tarkov.
