Yesterday I cleared Factory of PMCs only to nade myself while fighting an AI scav.

Feels bad man.

ID: gxm6a1v

The feeling depends on the player. I actually enjoy dying in this game now. It's always funny, especially when you kill yourself over some silly shit.

Man i have been playing this game in a i5 8gb ram for a year now and i just ordered new processor motherboard and ram this week and i cannot wait to play this game properly 😀

Is this game fun solo?

ID: gxfy7sz

I only play solo and its fun. Your own pace, mobility and all loot for yourself.

ID: gxg2o2f

I agree with all of this and also being able to know that any sound you hear that's not you is not a teammate makes it pretty enjoyable. Playing with friends is basically "where are you?" "is that you?" the whole time.

ID: gxfsf0t

Yea, tons.

ID: gxh4ftn

Going in with a few other people means you're much more likely to get noticed. Groups seem great if everyone is skilled but most of my group runs with friends generally results in a quick death and/or a tk. I'm a newer player and groups are fun for hanging out with friends but I don't expect much from them especially when everyone else has 20 levels on me.

ID: gxia5dt

I only play solo, its fun building up your farm, completing misisons etc. but I have quit now that I have everything. By the time I hit 80millish im just burnt out and need a break. Playing with teammates probably extends the gameplay, youre not always focused on missions or looting so you'll play longer.

Why can't i stop playing tarkov?

I got punished all day Yesterday

Today my friends scavs found a keytool for 85k rubles trip, i ravaged two other scavs in a raid with the adar i spawned with

Now im pumped and Hyped and ready to lose again

6 : Anonymous2021/05/10 19:36 ID: gxn8bgh

Luck of the year.. 85k scav case

just got my bitcoin farm running (first wipe, started late lol). how many cards should I put into it? I currently have two.

ID: gxgbv3o

Just two should be fine for now. Maybe 10 max? The ROI is quite low so i wouldn’t put too many especially since wipe doesn’t seem too far off

ID: gxhf4na

Don't buy them for the sake of filling up the BTC farm, you probably won't make your money back this wipe. Just add whatever you find in raid, or craft GPU's if you're trying to level up the hideout management skill/crafting skill.

ID: gxhwdt3

Honestly just run interchange late at night and I you'll find them scattered about no problem. Could end up with a couple each raid easy!

I know people have complained about servers and disconnections for a while but in that time I have honestly never experienced consistent disconnects. The last 3 days have been so god awful for me that I feel like I am paying some shit karma for never really caring about others connection problems lmao. My ping has been so bad I even started thinking it was my internet but countless speed tests say otherwise. Oh well, hope you guys aren't experiencing the same issues.

End Rant

ID: gxruvpp

I have been exactly the same the servers are dogshit at the moment. last 3 days on an evening connected to London Germany and France i have had constant disconnects, they really need to sort this shit out they are making millions every month from cheaters buying new accounts but don't sort the servers they have had 2 years since the game went big on the back of the first drops event yet in the 2 years the servers seem to have gotten worse. Sort your shit out BSG ffs.

EDIT: Just been into another raid same shit 300+ ping and 2 disconnects in the first 10 mins as im loading back in 'game has finished or been aborted' 1 million kit down the toilet...... this shit need sorting out but then again BSG dont care about loyal 4000 hour players they just love the cheaters and new players as they dont complain about desync and the servers.

Are footsteps quieter now? I keep getting snuck up on or shot from places I should’ve heard footsteps. I’m so confused, this has never been an issue. Anyone noticing anything different ??

10 : Anonymous2021/05/12 15:33 ID: gxv44i1

anyone know the state of the anti cheat for this game? Swear I’m getting wallhacked sometimes

ID: gxvauoc

That's a reasonable possibility. Tarkov also has enough desync to provide a solid peeker's advantage, which can sometimes look like hacks

ID: gxvei1b

I got wall hacked the other day on customs. Something is going on.

How do I survive grenades?

ID: gxfygzj

Lay down with your feet facing them if you can’t run.

Any Lab veterans got some insight on the FireKlean spawnchance in the cage? I'm 30 raids in at this point and while I've found several firesteels, fireklean keeps eluding me. Is it more rare than the firesteel, does it not spawn on the table in the middle cage or am I just getting rng'd?

ID: gxiisph

Just bad RNG unfortunately. In my experience the spawnrate for fireklean and firesteel seems to be the same in robot arms. It's also worth checking the tables in between robot cage and weapons testing, I recently saw a fireklean spawn on the table closest to hangar gate.

13 : Anonymous2021/05/09 16:39 ID: gxigae5

what's Charisma skill's use?

It says that raises merchants' loyalty rate, i lv'd up but they remained the same

ID: gxiibkf

The skill itself does nothing currently but you need to get it level 10 for a Ragman quest.

ID: gxikos2

I Hope It could help me with Jaeger

Fuck Jaeger

Want to talk bout factory exit campers?

ID: gxjwa1p

Always have a nade available before exiting factory and chuck one in. Bonus loot.

There are a lot worse exit camp angles in every other map.

15 : Anonymous2021/05/10 15:01 ID: gxm593s

Is anyone getting kicked before loading maps? I get this consistently now...

16 : Anonymous2021/05/11 18:35 ID: gxrdmo6

This is the third game in a row where I've been dumpstered by someone who noclips through reserve and drills me

17 : Anonymous2021/05/12 04:30 ID: gxtgg8z

What is the correct play when you are shot by a scav you can't see? Should I have run for cover more quickly? Does it help anything to return fire when you have no chance of hitting?

FWIW, I did survive this encounter by the skin of my teeth.

ID: gxv4zro

cover. heal. short peaks to find out where he is.

ID: gxvini4

Run away and attack from an entirely different angle after having repositioned. You have a second to kill the scav and if you don't kill them, reposition behind cover and flank.

18 : Anonymous2021/05/12 18:38 ID: gxvv9m3

Do patches wipe your local image cache every time or is it just me? Having to rescan everything (note, not re-identify; just allow the weapon/armo

image to reload in game) is tedious af.

19 : Anonymous2021/05/09 02:24 ID: gxgdy2u

I wish cheating didn't exist, that is all.

Any news on new nz/aus server, I'm interested in playing but have heard the servers aren't the best for me in nz

Igorr Blin for Scav name

22 : Anonymous2021/05/10 18:00 ID: gxmuj70

When do you guys expect the new wipe? This was my first wipe and I accomplished a ton, but I’m burnt out. I want to get 22 more killa kills and 2 more levels for 60 before wipe. How much time do I have? I May try labs again too, but loot seems meh for spending 150+ mil on all of the keycards.

ID: gxodaex

I don't know if they've said anything about it recently, but as of the last few years, wipes have generally lasted around 6-8 months and this one is nearly 6 months old.

ID: gxohyaw

I’d wager a month or two. Also Labs is essentially just an arena for pvp. Just think of it as a money sink. It’s def fun, but not economically rational. Take that as you will

23 : Anonymous2021/05/12 10:35 ID: gxu6dfl

Is there a way to get to the healing menu after you clicked it away after a raid ended?

24 : Anonymous2021/05/11 00:48 ID: gxoccpz

I spent twenty fucking minutes wondering around Woods looking for Jaeger's hut. I finally get in the right direction, encounter a scav and the fucking INSTANT I SHOOT IT DEAD IN THE FUCKING HEAD

How loud is NVG activation to other players?

26 : Anonymous2021/05/11 18:18 ID: gxrb2dy

Do you block scavs spawns when you're present in the area? WHats the best tactic to find Sanitar and Reshala? Do they spawn at certain time?

ID: gxrpcwl

its a random chance to spawn every game, just check the closest spawns to ur spawn in order

27 : Anonymous2021/05/11 22:56 ID: gxse9yu

where does the thursday wipe rumor come from or is it a joke?
