check wiki for keys, a lot of them are useless, yet since flea noobs have pumped prices for them you can sell them for a hefty chunk to rapist.
like resort for example has a ton of open doors that still have keys and retards are selling them for 50ish on flea so rapist pays you about the same.
just dump those kind of keys to rapist, free cash.

I have like 6 thermals but no desire to use them. They just really feel way too situational.

not sure if joking or legitimately retarded
devs are heavily into militaristic shit and they position this game as being all tactical and shit, you won't have any kind of dual wielding any time soon, maybe in some years when it's done and nikita says fuck it, fuck offs to his russia 2000something and they start adding zombies and katanas.

Early wipe tarkov is fun because you have something to lose with every death
Late wipe tarkov is less fun because you have endless fun and don't really care
BTC farm is a big contributor to that
Also inflates the economy a bunch which must be counteracted with moneysinks

For fucks sake you stupid Upotte shitter. Firstly I beg you to watch a better /k/ anime than that "WAOW SCHOOLGIRLS WITH GUNS!!!!!! IN COMPETITIONS!!" garbage.
Secondly your retarded Finnish AK will never be added because Russians hate Finns. Your even more retarded Jewish AK will never be added because neither USEC, BEAR, or the UN have any reason whatsoever to bring Israeli weapons to Russia.
This isnt even mentioning why you'd ever think adding two more fucking AK variants in calibers we already fucking have to a game that already has a multitude of fucking AK variants would be a good idea in any facet and not a complete waste of dev resources. Give it the fuck up.
>b-but they arent AKs!
Pic related. You don't even need to look at their internals (Although if you did it would only confirm that they're both AK variants), just take one look at the fire control lever and try to argue they arent AKs.
I just wish theyd make ritualposting a bannable offense already.

It's a bit boring, but unironically a good strategy if you're new and don't know each map's spawns and sweet loot spots yet. Most deaths seem to happen early, when sweatlords peek each others' spawns or fight for loot at each map's high value areas.
For me, it's always the fucking area right outside of the Interchange mall and then the mad dash to Techlight or camping the pharmacy.

Aim for recoil reduction more than ergo. Especially since the latest patch where nikita nerfed all ergo shit.

Great. I love doing these stupid fucking tasks. I can't wait to do more of them. Nikita really knows what makes his game fun.
>map-to-map shit
Great. So there'll be a ton of cheaters on Factory and Streets. And knowing BSG, they won't have run-throughs deleted by this update, so people will be getting run-throughs left and right since there's zero reason to stay on Factory or Streets if you're playing Labs.
>all these unnecessary nerfs to aim stamina and ergo
Does he think everyone is as fat and out of shape as he is? Fucking Christ. He's really gonna turn this game into vanilla Arma 3 retardation where walking 50 feet with a standard combat load is gonna leave your guy panting for air like some fat asthmatic.

If the game were actually heading in the direction of map-to-map adventures, it'd be pretty cool. But Nikita can't seem to figure out what he wants.
>designs a bunch of shitty, tedious tasks that you're forced to spam raids for if you want to get out of the hell that is low level traders and their abject garbage
>in-raid looting is still pretty restrictive with a bunch of gear that can't actually be found anywhere or only extremely rarely despite the performance of things like ammo and armor being balanced entirely around the top end, and we still don't have plate hitboxes
>actual raid XP remains nerfed
>economy is designed around filling your bags to the brim with loot every raid because even water is 13k R, and you do so without even looting half a map, so going to another map without being able to offload is pointless. And if/when they do reduce loot quantity, it'll drag the shitty task grind out longer and increase the tedium of doing all the RNG-based MMO quests.
>we still have stupid quests like, "Ay yo, wear this blue retard gear and shoot some fags,"; "Use this gun you may or may not like until you complete this random assignment,"; or, "break your fucking legs and shoot some people, champ."
>game punishes you for getting out of a raid to quickly or without doing enough, even though you'll need to survive three raids in a row for Labs
>map-to-map movement will just incentivize camping whatever the Labs exit is (or are).
>This shit will continue to wipe for years as BSG slowly trickles content into the game with the grind lengthening so that brainlet twitchfags can feel their false sense of accomplishment by completing these shitty tasks

okay so last wipe i got to level 10 and then my friends all stopped playing but recently got back into the game as solo and having some fun here and there. i never bother modding weapons because it seems the problem is that people always get the drop on me and brrrt me and i typically don't even have the chance to shoot them. also, my fighting instinct is bad, and i usually try to run away or drop prone first when shot at. i see content makers/streamers usually fight back instantly and often win. how do i apply myself? do i bother modding guns when i can barely achieve alpha strikes? i am generally good at sneaking around and staying hidden though, seems most my problems are psychological. also i pussy out a lot and chain-play scav matches due to gear fear and frequently skip doing pmc runs. also ignore the insane playtime, i very often leave the game running.

In any FPS the big four areas you need to develop to be good are: positioning, game sense, map knowledge, and aiming. If you don't know where to be or what to do you should probably look on youtube for general guides on how to improve those. The stuff specific to EFT like gear and looting are minor in comparison.

clear areas before moving forward, something that I still have trouble doing and know that it would help me survive more
If someone gets the drop on you, its likely over but on the flip side when i have the drop on someone i often fuck it up despite having like 1k hrs.
you need to wear armor that is worth a damn, helmets are debatable but t4 chest is mandatory

Yeah, you gotta keep in mind the health system is made up of body parts and a total value. If you wanna kill quickly you need to go for the thorax or head with enough penetration to punch through armor so that you can delete those parts as quickly as possible. Otherwise you're just spreading damage.

If the shooting itself is giving you trouble, keep in mind that:
>higher ergo will make your weapons snappier, tighter (lag behind screen less as you turn), and consume less stamina while ADSing
>you should always be holding your breath if you're about to shoot something (bind that shit to MB4 or something, famalam)

Unless I spawn in the car park or the storage lot (which is always a battle royale), I usually can slip across the river, loot the two unfinished warehouses, and then prowl around looking for scavs. Sniper scavs love the factory roofs around there and dumbass ground scavs are easy pickings. Only danger for me is if Reshala spawns in the Warehouse by the Gas Station, in which case he throws every grenade in the world and you get instantly pasted.

Part of the difficulty for me was realizing that the character automatically leans into his recoil, so instead of dragging down you have to drag down and then back up as he corrects it. I think it's a great idea but

Jesus I suck at CQC. I don't know how to take corners or doors effectively when pie slicing isn't an option. I carry over a lot of habits from the outdoor maps where movement is quiet and it's easy to hide. I think on The Change and Factory I just move way too slow.

I can't find the guide I used but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J21cz6082lo goes over pretty much the same points.
Also try Memory Cleaner. It seems some people don't have this problem at all but on my machine EFT loves to take all the RAM available and then wants more which leads to stutters and the game's native RAM cleaning option doesn't do shit.
You have better specs than me so it shouldn't run worse but it's EFT on Unity so there's that.
Are you using Win 7? I used it until a month ago and performance is a lot better with Win10.

Money is easy. Just survive raids. You can even make 200+ rubles just scaving factory (which isn't optimal but is easiest). That's an intel folder right there.

Tarkov taught me to be scared of man-made structures and TERRIFIED of wide open spaces. Scurrying in alleys is about the most comfortable you can get and even then you can get a grenade dropped on you. I don't know how those fuckers in Stalingrad did this stuff for a year.

What's a good cheaper gun I can bring into random squads from public discords and not lose too much if I die? I have most vendors level 4 except Mechanic and Ragman. I usually roll level 4 armored rig (TV-110, M1/M2, AVS), a cheaper level 4 helmet like the MSA, ACHHC or TC-800 with faceshield but I don't know what gun to bring. The P90 is pretty decent as long as I start buying the ammo from PK every reset now, but that's not the best at range. M4s cost too much to mod.

Also Prapor restock in 10.

It depends on the map really. On Woods I usually go in without armor, just comtacs + VPO-205 and a makarov with hollowpoints. They ALWAYS end up being the most Viet Cong ratfuck runs I do because of how softly you step on grass and how powerful shaded foilage is vs. scavs and players. Combine that with the golden rule
>prone gets you home
and you're basically playing MGS3. More than once I have had PMCs actively searching for me step on my silencer while passing me by only for me to gat them down.

On Factory I don't think you can do stealth at all. The spawns are just too aggressive and there's so many loud floors. The best you can do is rapidly seize a position and then battle it until it's safe to move. The most you can do is find somewhere you can hold completely still without anyone notice you got there to begin with.

Reserve fucking terrifies me though and I wind up slowwalking the entire raid.

go up to sniper rock on woods to get a feel for the bullet drop at bigly ranges, but once you've done it it's not a bad rifle at all.

>>320794971
In terms of making the best decision in-game, it depends on the situation as well as yourself.

In terms of meta gameplay, suicidally daring as long as your income is in the positive. Camping a ton every raid or moving very slowly and ultimately accomplishing nothing from it or possibly dying anyway as a result is just a counterproductive waste of time, AND it will keep you as stressed out and anxious as ever. If you stomp around everywhere and play like you don't give a damn, you eventually won't because you'll get used to fighting, killing, and dying. You'll learn the game quicker too.

>>320806010
The UNTAR mission is heavily under the influence of Terragroup due to political fuckery, and are essentially deployed the way that they are to force the Internal Ministry in a tense stalemate. Peacekeeper is barely there to do his job - many of his missions have you collecting intel or equipment to benefit his Western contacts, likely Terragroup intetrsts. The fact he hires (technically) civilians to dress up as UN for patrols to fake reports is hilariously fucking scummy.

The only alturistic thing he actually does is investigate the cult, and since they detonated the EMP, it's likely for his puppetmasters anyways.

As far as what Terragroup is trying to cover up, that's the big mystery. Honestly the lore is so grounded in plausibly-immersive backroom politics and corruption that I hope they do a 180* and reveal some serious sci-fi shit. They could drop a fucking Tyrant into Labs and I would be all for it.

Incorrect. It's not a matter of sitting on your ass not playing the game like you think. It's a matter of having played enough to know what other people shooting those guns sounds like because you just naturally learn these things as you play.

I don't understand how i'm supposed to get good at this game. I've played Customs five times today, trying to get that scav quest done. four out of the five times i've been ambushed from bushes, one time I was actually able to win the ambush, I don't know what that dude was doing because I am terrible and he couldn't hit shit. He had a lvl 5 chest armor and shit too, so I don't know what the fuck that was about.

Is hat all this game is? I'm level 7 now and it feels like a lot of this game is sitting around and waiting, and then jumping out from a bush or something. The two times I got to dorms I didn't see a single player in there. The gunplay in this game is a lot of fun, but I don't like camping in games and that's all this game seems to be. Will probably uninstall, but I wanted to ask people who've played it a shitload more than me if that's what the game is.

There are a lot of campers, and the game incentivizes that. If you wanna be able to deal with them, wear the earpro in-game and keep an ear out for bushniggers. They usually have shit aim, so if you don't move slowly and predictably through those areas like the bushes around Dorms, you can stay relatively safe from them. Keep your eyes on the bushes and avoid bush-dense areas if you can. You get better at predicting and spotting campers the more you play, and while you can generally avoid dying to them, they'll still get you from time to time.

You can either trigger some offline factory scavs into actually moving and adjust based on that or use some video, I remember testing with https://youtu.be/G7tLZkkk1Cg?t=355 because he's a massive soundwhore too
You just can't crank it up really high because then all the wind sounds and general ambience will be way too overpowering, which is probably why they're so strong in this game

Yes, which is why there are so many abandoned military vehicles and crashed drones/planes. I haven't read the first minibook yet but it's my understanding that basically
>USEC & BEAR shadow war consists of BEAR collecting evidence and USEC combating them
>BEAR mostly hits TGL/USEC safehouses and blacksites (i.e shoreline villas, etc)
>USEC is complicit in corporate hits on whistleblowers. one newspaper article implies that two underwater welders accidentally discovered TGL infrastructure on a job and were dissapeared by USEC
>eventually spills into hyperviolent open conflict that destabilizes the region, ie Contract Wars
>protoscavs begin rioting, looting
>EMERCOM begins evacuations
>Internal Ministry (aka RF's National Guard) is deployed
>a local cult somehow aquires an EMP from Terragroup
>USEC & TGL mysteriously begin an early withdrawal of HVTs and manpower, leaving elements behind
>BEAR is already exfiltrating, but something (intel on EMP?) causes them to leave early, stranding elements as well
>EMP is detonated
>Internal Ministry is forced to withdraw
>TGL pulls strings to cause United Nations intervention in their favor that would supersede the Internal Ministry's authority
>immense tension as Russia and UN tell each other to fuck off
>RF army covers the eastern border, UN covers the European borders
>Escape From Tarkov

Therapist's quests imply that leaving Tarkov is as simple as going to the border and declaring as a refugee. But a background check would probably out a PMC incredibly easily. USEC would either get arrested by the Russians or dissapeared by TG, BEAR would be arrested since they're black ops or blacksited by TG for interrogation.

Tarkov and the region it's in (Norvinsk) is a special area designated to have special laws for businesses. It's actually a brand new city but the attractive prospects for big business caused it to come out of the gate incredibly strong. This included rapid industrialization all over the place - TG in particular did many shady landgrabs to secure abandoned military bunkers in the wilderness to act as blacksites for shady doings.

With that in mind, the pollution could be chalked up to
>unregulated waste pollution from the factories from damage, lack of maintenence, EMP etc
>cultists poisoning the water supply
>special chemical waste from TGL; TGL's specialty seems to be super-drugs
The last two could be mixed. The cultists are very interesting because
>they are geared as FUCK
>E M P
>TGL & USEC command left on a very convenient timeframe for the EMP
>incredibly dangerous poison on their knife...
>...only curable by TGL-brand antidote...

>>320811948 is on to something in that Terragroup may have given a bunch of crazy people in the woods the means to completely fuck the city of Tarkov. Why? It's hard to say. My first thought is that they're doing an Ozymandias and making the cult so dangerous that they become the scapegoats for everything, on top of making it harder for people to investigate the crisis while it's still in the air.

This is also just total theorycrafting, but I like to imagine Scav Raiders on labs are directly employed Terragroup assets meant to be their last line of direct defense. The lore pieces make reference to a TG honcho having his own special force of security forces, and I think that could be them. I say "on labs" just because I'm pretty positive Gluhkar and his boys are just RF soldiers holding out.

I've had the experience of painkillers removing tremor (though the kill was immediately after the usage, so maybe it comes back again? Not sure) so I really recommend not using them. On top of that, using painkillers on round start on factory is a REALLY bad idea, especially depending on spawn. You have to be ready to go STRAIGHT away.

The best way to get decent gear is to buy it. Make money doing whatever you have the most fun /are good at. Some people scav for trash, others go reserve for raiders, others rush hot loot spots with pistols.
Flea market lets you have FUN.
If you want to win your own gear, either be a god at PvP or kill raiders.

While both USEC and BEAR foot soldiers got fucked over what with being abandoned to fight each other and locals for survival after having gone through an intense period of fighting each other for money, BEARs really got completely played for a bunch of retards.
At least as a USEC you can probably say you saw your current situation coming. Working for a shady group of scientists in bed with your top COs and doing black ops in a foreign land, it's not really a surprise that they eventually left you to the wolves in order to eliminate evidence. But the money was probably too good to pass up, and there's probably more than a few USECs who think 'Worth it lol' when they reflect on their current situation.
But with BEARs, you're not just a guy working for the villains because they pay well. You're a countryman who believes you're doing what's /right/. Gathering evidence on this evil corporation and their hired military black ops doing all sorts of fuckery in your country. Picking up arms to actively fight the western meddlers during the Contract Wars. Believing wholeheartedly that you're the good guys doing what's right for your nation and people.
And then your government abandons you. Leaves you to fight like a jackal for scraps just to scrape by, like the western dogs who command USEC did to their soldiers. It must have been a slap in the face. A real wakeup call. Suddenly the RF and TGL dont look so different anymore. Suddenly you're second guessing yourself on whether what you were doing was ever right or if you were just being played the whole time.
It's my headcanon that BEARs take no issue at all murdering their countrymen (Scavs) or teaming up with their previous mortal enemies (USECs) because the majority of them have realized how badly they've been played to the point that they've developed extreme apathy if not straight-up hatred for the RF and Tarkov/Norvinsk as a result

>>320817632
I only started three days ago too. Have a map up of the area you explore. Woods is large so there's less fights outside of hot spots. Factory is the smallest map and has a lot of combat. Customs and reserve ( as scav ) are doable too. Interchange is insane and I haven't touched Shoreline yet.

I typed all of these up and I want to end it with this. I am fascinated by Tarkov's lore. I think it is shockingly good compared to the rest of the game (which I love despite its flaws). It is incredibly interesting to me, and it is built out of an acceptably plausible timeline of events. A lot of it is mundane and derived fundamentally from the fact that Tarkov is a special economic zone. The fact that it's so grounded really contributes to the whole theme and feel of the game - so that when you reach the word 'cult', it's like what do you mean there's a fucking cult?

All of that mundane element, to me, works to make the more fantastical things seem much more interesting. TGL isn't doing Umbrella B.O.W shit, the most you see are dangerous chemicals and experimental drugs. But they have courted a very well-written conspiracy around their doings, uplifting backwater inbreds into mythical night terrors and putting the world on the brink of a global conflict.

To cover something up.

I can safely say that if at the end of the road they do a full 180° into serious sci-fi bullshit, then LET'S FUCKING GO. I want to see the Terragroup Labs supersoldier gone wrong. I want to see the fucking xenomorph raping people on Labs while a scientist whispers
>BEAUTIFUL....THE ULTIMATE LIFE FORM....
over the intercom. I want to see the cultists summon fucking Nylarathotep. I want to be hunted by velociraptors. Just ANYTHING wild enough to do justice to the insane conspiracy at play.

Tarkov needs to push its excellent story harder, in a more accessible way you can gleam from in-game discoveries. Give us newspapers we can loot and read, or intel documents, reports. I love this shitty game and I believe whole heartedly in a good future for it despite all its problems.
>>
>>320817632
none of the maps are friendly to beginners really, becuase the spawn system is such that you will often spawn within 10 seconds of PvP with somebody. most of the early quests are customs and shoreline, so they're good to learn, but I'd actually advocate interchange as the best map. you can avoid the majority of combat by staying away from the main shopping area itself, looting the the side routes around the warehouses and backs of shops.

been watching streams / plays of this lately and this game seems right up my alley in many ways

my one hesitation has to do with my own shortcomings with FPSs. I can aim a gun perfectly fine, but I struggle with what I call "target acquisition". In other words, literally identifying with my eyes that a target / enemy is in my view. I'm not blind or anything but from watching others I know I'm well below average in this realm

especially in a game like this it seems like survival is very much dependent upon you being able to see a few pixels walking into a bush from a long distance, or quickly seeing an enemy down a dimly lit corridor.

am i signing up for a complete ass whooping no matter how long i play? it seems like a blast

SKS is great, but the ammo is underwhelming
ADAR is really fun, very moddable, but the good ammo is overpriced
SR-25/RFB is extremely fun, m80 is super cheap, but the guns themselves cost a lot and the silencers run you up 50k minimum
M1A is probably the best of all but is expensive and requires a bit of modding to make it good

Tarkov is not a realistic game. It's CoD with longer respawn times. Doing dumb shit to abuse the netcode gives you a huge advantage. This isn't a debate, this is fact.
>>
>>320834480
Tarkov is a game where going slow and listening pays off a lot more than shift + w. There is a time and place for being fast and loud, and slow and patient. I can tell you either don't play the game and only watch streamers, or you play the game and you suck at it.

I've noticed this before. Since they're most likely reusing the same animation for all rifles, they must've made one that was "one size fits all" and so the IK joint breaks (it would go into negative numbers if you saw the attribute editor in your animation software of choice) and resets. It's part of the eurojank, so I let it slide.

okay cool, i mostly have been doing paca + sks because im still trying to learn the new customs map, it seems the fighting is way more frequent now than it was 2 wipes ago. Every time i spawn in the new southern part of the map i struggle to get out safely. Seems like the loot there is also way way powercreeped compared to the loot on the rest of the map besides the Customs office.

I suppose, though, that if im going to bother doing PMC runs, i might as well run good armor, right? Now that I think about it, if i'm just gonna run cheap as dirt loadouts i may as well just do scav runs.

And that's why I play solo

those guys don't sound like very good friends, guy i play with isnt the best at communicating sometimes but he will always offer to hide my stuff and does not get upset when we die.

people don't put shopping carts back?
hes a bit of a spaz has low social skills, he will say something that's correct but in a manner which just upsets people and the choice of different words would make people like him more which can make him quite rude but I'm fine with it I've been on the internet for a long time

it doesn't give you gamma container anymore?
>>
>>320848004
No....
>>
>>320848504
it never did, if you mean kappa you need to complete every* quest and turn in one of every streamer item; gamma container is EOD only

*minus some of the bullshit ones
>>
>>320848342
They spawned all over the factory.
>>
>>320848436
well it ended the 14th last year i believe, and i've heard it should end on the 14th this year as well, so last day i guess.
>>
>>320848690
Why did you do that quest?
Is that important?
You are just bored after that quest?

>>320848836
Oh I'm not that guy but I assume he's a standard player who isn't going for kappa and now has the best container he can get. Epsilon is a huge upgrade for standard players and the grind for Kappa is long and tedious.

>>320850442
one side is the dudes hired by their government to investigate into a company breaking laws and going wild
the other is a private army hired to clean up their dirty laundry
there's literally not much more to say about them, it's all in the loading screens, did you even read those?

define ukraine
if you mean modern ukraine - no, there is none... otherwise that wouldn't be ukraine anymore duh (insert a joke about ukrainian military)
if you mean the (((occupied land))) - probably there is, and even if there isn't, the dudes there are armed by russian forces and paid by russian forces so might as well be russian forces
like, what does that change? and what does that have to do with the game or topic at hand?

do you think some company who owns a private army and some bleeding-edge biotech secret lab underneath a city doing some experiments and outputting crazy scifi drugs and whose activity lead to entire region of russia (at the very least) being turned into warzone is in the right here?

huh? ok i guess. dunno what you wanted to hear from me, i really wouldn't mind the collapse of current russian government, but ukraine is a joke of a country, and if you think otherwise you better study it's short history some more, how it appeared and formed. same goes for belorussia btw, even moreso. strong eats weak, it's the law of nature, and tiny shithole like ukraine doesn't compare to what russia can put unto it. there's no justified wars, usa does this kinda crap all the time too, so why do you care about those pseudocountries no one in the west knew existed a mere decade ago, but keep silent about all the warcrimes commited by the usa? its all the same shit.
