Does anyone spawn into shoreline and set up a nice bush lean-to, snack on a MRE and cola, and wait a half hour for the SVD’s to stop firing while watching YouTube?

Because if so, lets go camping! I haven't been able to get Colleagues - Part 1 done in my past 2 weeks of focusing on it.

Edit: grabbed 2 guys from the thread and actually had my first shoreline success in a long time. We even spared and gave the gear back to a dude I winged who then began to dump his gear and run. Thinking about the very words here, I wanted him to enjoy his own camping and questing experience in nature. Thanks to Forsakuu and Chiefy.

Mmmmm lead. Always a good pallet cleanser after some peas.

I say just go in low-geared and do a full-on sprint to every location. I got that quest done in two raids by accident (not bragging, I seriously suck at Tarkov lol)

ID: h926cxb

Tried that, tried going slow, tried waiting, tried geared, tried budget. My best chance at this point is finding like minded outdoorsman to fill up spots in the lobby with me.

The problem might be you keep changing your playstyle every raid.

Try 3-5 of a certain type of raid/gear in a row..see how you get on.lm

That's how we play (duo sometimes trio) I'll bring you a kvass and an iskra if we go camping!

Pm me for discord

Playing like a rat is how I go too lmao. I still bring in level 5 gear and meta stuff whenever I can. (I also dont use flea at all, I'm level 13) but tryna play more hardcore style, not even using my gamma that often, and carrying all my meds loose, makes this game feel a lot different.

Shouldn't be that hard to get it done tbh I mainly run shoreline, so we can just go on a loot run or something and get it, can also help with the other shoreline quests.
CEO_Of_Aimnt if you wanna try to do it with me

ID: h92d8j6

Yeah that sounds good. Just got home from gym, 30 minutes? I'm at my whits end with it.

ID: h92e6jy

We should be able to get a fast raid in maybe, it really depends, gonna have to be going soon though.

Go in at night, but dont try to extract at rock passage. I have died at that location 5 times in a row last night trying to do another quest. All of my quest on shoreline i have done them at night.

ID: h92bah7

I'll try this! I never considered it.

ID: h92imw8

I usually quest at night. It's less crowded and if you start earlier in the night you have way less player scavs spawning in later in the raid. Going in around 3-4am means late raid it's daylight = dangerous

Just stay away from resort for the first half of the raid while you get your other locations done. Don't run if you don't have to. Use a silenced weapon. Keep your eyes peeled, don't engage unless you have to. Pick off your scavs from a distance. Get your stuff done and dip, don't spend time looting unless it's really convenient. Basically just focus on your tasks, stray and you'll lower your chances of success.

If you have to plant something, visit a location or kill scavs, night is perfect on any map. Go with some cheap night vision. Skier sells a pair of good and cheap nvg's.

ID: h92fkje

Night runs on shoreline are all I do too as both scav and PMC

ID: h92gmoi

Don't do tunnel either. I've been camped at tunnel from an indefensible location literally EVERY TIME I've tried to exfil there as a PMC.

Never once killed at rock passage or road to customs.

ID: h92ldhh

Where is this spot? I exfil all the time at tunnel usually only doing night raids tho.

I spawn in and set up a nice bush, snack on MREs and Aquamari's while I wait for ya'll to go around with your silly blue helmets, so I can get this stupid Punisher part 4 done.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

ID: h929wx5

Im not even there with the blue helmets. But I see you. I'll keep the fire stoked and some squash on the grill.

ID: h92pg3u

Meanwhile I'm here in a bush with my blue helmet and to-do list from Peacekeeper and Therapist, shopping list from Skier (I still have no fucking clue where his motor controller is), 2 signal jammers and a freaking 2kg of markers nestled in my butt - waiting for the people recreating the 1810 symphony with cogs to fuck off to the rock passage extract.

At least you don't exfil camp. Found a dude that killed me after doing 4 missions in one wildly successful run, we even killed sanitar.

He killed me and I lost the whole mission. Then three buddies ran down from the rock too. How do I know? Because my squad fucking layed them out when they tried to loot my body. Whatever, just one of the playstyles, right. Well, they hadn't looted a single thing. They just came in geared AF just to exfil camp for 35 minutes. They apparently hadn't killed anyone either because they literally only had their guns, armor, ammo, and food.

Fucking exfil campers.

ID: h931yl7

Cant help but wonder what goes through those peoples minds. So they kill one guy and then they all run down like monkeys to split the loot, maybe one guy gets the helmet, another some bolts, and the rest some peas or what? If somebody likes sniping, taking up a position for a long time, etc I perfectly understand that but these guys that killed you just sound like complete loot gremlins trying to make profit in the most inefficient way possible

ID: h933jl6

They are people who would most likely shit their pants at the thought of a real engagement. So try to catch you when you are most likely at your most relaxed.

Ive been sitting here tryna do SBH. But everyone somehow ends up behind me or I see no one

ID: h92na1i

I mske a mean lean-to and smokeless fire. Gotta watch out, don't wanna attract bears.

For real this is a mood. No one scavs onto this map, and if they do they max spawn at like 19 minutes. Bush-sit til 22ish, do your quest, and bounce

10 : Anonymous2021/08/15 20:36 ID: h92o6r7

Pick a dead server in the launcher. Might take a few tries, generally if the LFG list is tiny then that usually means not a lot of players.

Then once you find that dead server, go during the night. That is how I compete these dumb run around the map quests. I take endurance stims and barely any gear. Just enough to kill a scav or two if I need to.

11 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:22 ID: h92ukx2

i hate that u might aswell always go pistol only when questing or like a shotty and paca , cuz either you wont see anyone or you will hit a 5man team in killah helms.

12 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:35 ID: h934aso

Whenever I spawn on the right side of the map I feel like I die >75% in short time, usually by someone I never saw, no matter which way I go, so I might as well try just chilling next time.

Left side of the map near Swamps or the town I usually don’t have a problem and feel free to go wherever.

13 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:44 ID: h935gdw

ahh yes, the good old, wait till there are 15 mins left in raid. A certified hood classic, makes it easier to get quests done.

14 : Anonymous2021/08/15 23:50 ID: h93dr8z

Dont worry, im the guy who eats a nice iskra and chugs a hot rod right after waiting in a bush for 30 minutes for you to get up so I can try and get SBiH done 🙂

15 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:27 ID: h933cyl

no because waiting 30 minutes and watching youtube to kill the time just to play a game is ridiculous. but play how you want fam

16 : Anonymous2021/08/15 19:35 ID: h92fjqv

Lmao “Lets go camping!” made me laugh so much.. Just laying in a bush with a scav backpack and watching youtube until the guns shooting.

17 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:03 ID: h92s0fq

Used to. Hackers killing me anyway made me quit

18 : Anonymous2021/08/15 20:01 ID: h92j6uk

Dont Force it. Do other quests on shoreline and when you have the top resort spawn you run to the Resort Spot and go slow from there.

19 : Anonymous2021/08/15 20:51 ID: h92q9qm

This is exactly how i played snoreline while doing my quests. Bush, humpback, emergency water ration, alt+tab and some youtube.

Try night raids, especially during non-prime time on your server. Chances to meet someone is VERY low. I don't know how it is possible to be so unlucky.

Keep away from the heps crossing is my tip

Ugh, I dread this task every time I look at my task list.

I’m procrastinating.

Just did a shoreline run when i walked up to a SVD in a bush fun times he worked fine with my wine

23 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:31 ID: h92vw40

I'll run it with you later if you want. We can get it done

24 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:40 ID: h92x19t

I find that night runs are effective for getting quests done as well

25 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:41 ID: h92x5sb

For a while it was me shooting a suppressed SVD. Sorry about that..... I even started hunting cultists at night with it, pretty useful!

26 : Anonymous2021/08/15 21:50 ID: h92yf8i

This is my favorite way to run shoreline. Add me on discord HighwayToTheDangerzone#2365

No i just play the game and profit

Some days all you do is die. Especially with the cracked spawns on shoreline

29 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:10 ID: h9311xz

I have completed many, many tasks like this. Also, task at night. Makes things a lot easier. Most of the time, at least.

30 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:12 ID: h931ey8

My buddy and I have been running night shoreline for 3 days now very rarely run into people I go up loot resort and roll out he loots stashes and cottages and levels sniper

31 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:13 ID: h931i44

Did you finish it yet?

32 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:17 ID: h9322tk

Night time raids!

I think, in general, most people really dislike the feeling/hate night game play but it makes mission running incredibly easy for dealing with the not so fun tasks.

In a lot of cases you don't need NVG's. I would recommend some on Woods though. The combination of super dark areas with the trees make seeing anything almost impossible.

33 : Anonymous2021/08/15 22:27 ID: h933bwr

Yes. This is exactly what I do.
