So just ouf of curiousity, when Tarkov came out how did people know where to find quest items and where are the extracts? I cant imagine not having the maps and guides when I started so how did it work back then?ID: hlolnu0
They build the maps and wiki like it’s still the case with new maps and quests?
Ive died multiple times this week to blatant cheaters (ratting rooms and getting naded from impossible spots, prefire 1 taps, ect) . Taking a break for awhile.ID: hll9jk1
Waiting for the gaslighting on your comment to begin. "bro, just get better" "its max perception" "you just surround yourself with cry babies" lolID: hlladjs
Eh, Reddit only accounts for a small percentage of the playerbase. Mostly hoping theres a small chance someone might come across my comment and realize Battleye is a fkn joke. Cheating has always been an issue with this game and it never gets addressedID: hll1keo
Ditto. Had 3 blatant cheater experiences this week. The worst was being shot through a wall while being semi-afk (I didn't make a sound).
A helmet has finally saved me from what would have otherwise been a headshot...
It was the fucking airsoft helmet my scav came with. Survived 2 rounds to the head before dyingID: hll9nv6
I wear altyns and rys for this purpose. Those rats with crap ammo got great aim.ID: hlloc57
I splurged on an altyn exactly once
Got shot by lapua, instead dead. I swear everytime I get better armor I run into people with better ammo
It's saturday, still hoping for this "event".ID: hlh8zcb
Anybody know what it is? Did anything happen?ID: hli1fum
I think it's "no scavs in underground warehouse on Reserve" because god forbid I complete the Safe Corridor task.
BSG Tweeted thisIn the translated tweets they say something about, "something going down saturday" Just wondering if that was about the sherpa anniversary or something else?
I'm back after like, a year break or so...where the heck is woods sniper scav now?
Went up to snag me a mosin and he was definitely not where I remember him being and I didn't get eyes on him before I got blammed.ID: hlnix5c
Been playing since June and can't say I've ever seen one. The roadblock near Outskirts is the best place I can think of on Woods to snipe scavs these days.
Does an SJ6 provide any benefit to someone with max level stamina?ID: hlkm7fi
yes, you can run almost an entire map back from back without stopping, shits fire yo
I wish BSG would employ a new anti-cheat. Battle eye is old and primitive as fuck.ID: hlna56d
And yet Nikita gets upset when it’s implied that the anti cheat is lacking rather than actually improving it
Starting to see some people say the wipe will be Thursday.. where is this coming from??ID: hlmnl67
watching bakeezys stream and someone said that in chat, wondering the same exact thingID: hln5pyv
Thursday December 23rd will be wipe. This should be pinned as a PSA tbh.ID: hlnkeb3
Oh nice. So people can grind the game instead of talking to fam over the holidays. Sign me up!
In the skill tab, I saw a line that said: "1 point to spend". Where can I use that tho?ID: hlkljya
probably an unused feature early in development enabled by accidentID: hlip62u
Was added along with the last patch, doesn’t actually do anything, seems to be a bit of a teaser for what’s to come though

I really enjoy the MDRs. The 5.45 version can fit a huge mag and has high enough base ergo that oversized mags don't make it take a year to aim. The 7.62 version packs a punch though it's limited to 20 round mags. It says the effective range is 500, and I've taken out scav snipers from 420 before with it, so it's not wrong. Fairly cheap to mod too as there are only a handful of things you can do to them (silencer, handguard, scope, laser...maybe barrel? I can't remember for sure) and they don't need much. Drawbacks are that the ammo is spicy. 995 or M61 depending on caliber, and they both might as well be gold plated.
my new weekly operational task is
hand over found in raid:
5 Mechanism backpack
4 Wilcox skull lock head mount
5 Shemagh (Tan)
sounds like i wont be able to complete being a lootrun rat player
Inviting friends dont work. That party system is currently broken lol We just went back to 2020
Is it normal to see kitted guns spawned in raid? Till now all the FiR guns I've found have been stock, but I saw this AK in king, looked like it spawned rather than being placed there, but I was surprised all the parts were FiR, and it doesn't look like it was from a scav either.ID: hln7g2h
Yes, you can find mid-tier kitted guns in certain locations.ID: hlnupf2
yes, there are a few kitted guns that spawn. typically in KIBA. I've found the M4 sopmod in there frequently
Second magazine through a brand new MCX, misfires. Fuck the misfire system.
Anyone have any idea what I should try to get for a Rivals 2020 Half Mask? I see some barters up for crazy things like Labs Black or Green keys, or a Taiga, etc. Frankly I'd love to just get some cash for it, as I tend to like to gear up above my pay grade so to speak, and having more of a cushion would be nice. I've never seen one just for sale though.ID: hlp0yqk
carefull for the fee, you ll end up having to pay more because of the fees when you want to post it. i recommend making a barter trade or just simply try to see the fees first, just post it for 1mill and see from there if you raise or not.
When wipe?ID: hlod5k8
Thursday December 23rdID: hlojizf
I was hoping it’d be sooner, is dec 23rd confirmed?
What’s the easiest or cheapest loadout to kill killa?
I’ve just recently found the keys to kiba and I’ve been trying to loot it and I’ve just gotten murdered by killa 3-4 times in a row. I played interchange a ton yesterday to get a ton of kills with mP-155 and I never saw him.
Though that could have been since I was looking for scavs so he was probably dead before I got there but since I’ve been pretty much spawning and going to kiba I’ve been fortunate enough that he’s been there every time….
What’s the best map for car instructions or manual I need two for my weekly to complete it
What stuff are you hanging onto? You should need that much space. Keep the items you're going to need and sell everything else. Check this site for the list of everything you'll need tarkovtracker.io
Well i had enough screwdrivers and pliers to equip a small army of mechanics.
I just keep gathering stuff and then going through it all every so often on the wiki to see whats needed for quests and barter trades etc. Hard keeping track of it all though. I'll give that site a look,thanks.
Shrap-10 has no place in this game. Just a joke round to coddle people who can't aim.
