  1. Yeah, I just need to get Jager upto level 2. I've basically been ignoring the quests and hideout, but I want the scav crate. Little did I know intel center 2 is the hub to which seemingly every other upgrade is attached :/
  2. Sorry, which quest is what? The scavs spawning are just a random thing and there my doc cases labelled with keys for each map Finally got the Gas Analyser, yeet!
  3. @Sir Mullo Ah ha ha. So there's a bug on interchange, whereby if you stand in a particular area the scavs will not stop coming. It got introduced in one the pre 12 patches. The community asked for it to be left in, but kept in a localised area. Sounds like you hit it. I did this earlier and it has brought me so much key sorting joy.
  4. No, I've basically played the same online games for the last 3 years. I've recently added Tarkov to the mix, so that makes three :/
  5. Yeah, it has to be in raid. Even tried having a mate give me one, but it didn't work. I've heard they're in Interchange, which is why I've started running it, but I'm still not massively famliar with it. Had a run with a mate earlier. He died and I capped 11 scavs and got out
  6. This is good to hear. I got the game on launch, but bounced off it quite quickly for just that reason.
  7. So I've had a good run of runs today. I wanted to get to know interchange as I need an in raid gas analyser for my quests. I did a few hatchling runs, but got capped by scavs. So I ran with a pistol. I killed a few scavs in Oli and ended up with a decent kit. So I decided I'd just play with the kit until I died and do another pistol run. Then I accidentally loaded into customs and was super near dorms, so I ran over and straight into Rashala. I killed him and his henchmen, then got into a fight with a PMC. I also killed him and then very slowly took my hobbled ass back to cross roads. I've ended up ridiculously kitted, all off the back of a pistol run Still haven't got a fucking gas analyser though!
  8. In factory I have a few spots I like to sit in. The dead end blue containers near the two searchable boxes, the raised platform above the dead scav or the tunnels to the left if you are coming out of gate three. Then I usually wait and listen. I try to get a feel for where people are and where the fighting is. Keeping mental note to scavenge the bodies. Player scavs you can see a mile off so I try to kill them, but in general I don't agro the scavs by killing them, unless by accident. Then once I have a feel for the map I try to play around the fighting, moving under the cover of gun fire and looting. It's amazing how easy it is to pop players whilst they are looting if you wait. Even better is that they have usually harvested the good shit for you. Getting out gate 3 is always a bit risky, but it's my preferred exit as you can get to it from a number of ways. The corrugated box the closest to the right is the one to watch as you go past into the exit, as well as watching for exit campers. I was down to 1.7 mil two days ago as I wanted to buy stuff to upgrade my hideout. Currently sat at just under 4mil, mostly from factory scav runs.
  9. Ah, just on the upgrade. If you are going to buy the big one. Buy each stage as you get the gear for each bit. I didn't but my friend did and got more shit than me. It only works the once though, when they wipe you just get your tier back. This is why I love scaving Factory. I spawned in with a pistol and some bandages 260K from that quick 5 mins. I kept the keys, the relay and the drinks.
  10. Fuck labs. Woods is a good shout though. Always worth a play if you have a scav with a scoped rifle.
  11. Went into customs with just a mosin, ammo and my meds in my case. One tapped a beefy boi.
  12. Yeah, I think so. I extract every other time at least. My last run netted me 270k. To be honest it isn't really for beginners. I think customs is probably the most beginner friendly map. But factory will get you shooting at people or more sensibly hiding until the gun fire stops, carefully listening for footsteps and picking over the the dead scavs for loots.
  13. The very loud closing of a coat when you're in the next room :/
  14. Next wipe is in 5 months. Along with a new map. The biggest upgrade between now and then will be a complete overhaul of the audio. Thank god. That's from the dev update over on the escape from tarkov Reddit .
  15. Yeah, that's a really good point. The LPZ ammo is still great tbh. This is my current stash
  16. So what's grrat about tarkov is there's really no win conditions other than stay alive. Sure there's the quests, but these were added as filler until they have the main campaign/story in. How you play and win is upto you. If you want to go kill players and get dog tags you, if you want to loot and never be seen you can. The world is harsh, punishing and full of threats. So it is upto you to approach it. Me and my duo buddy like to chase fighting and shots. Then we chose when to engage. Third partying people that are weak or looking elsewhere might not be heroic, but it is fucking effective. Also you don't need masses of roubles. Spend it on your hideout and stuff off the flea market. Better armour makes it easier to survive, which means you'll extract with more loot, more often.
  17. Yes and no. If you run head first into players then aim will help, but it's not the only way to kill. The maps are built so that you can stalk, out maneuver and use tactics to flank and get the drop on enemies. It goes a lot deeper when you start adding armour, bullet quality and various other stats. You will die though, but that's what makes it great.
  18. Just get it off the flea market. Keep 5 in your gun, 5 on your dude and the rest in you secure case.
  19. The infantry or standard, there's very little in the specs with them. Ak's are great, but the reason I suggest the mosin with a red dot and 7N1 ammo is that it'll headshot almost every helmet in the game for 42(ish)k. It's a great way to get used to hittiing heads and taking fights/shots when it's in your advantage to do so. It forces a style of play, that I think is good for new players. However, if you find something that works for you, do that. Something worth noting, in Tarkov hip firing or point firing is actually really effective. The recoil is managed mostly by the character model, not the mouse so you can be very accurate with it. Especially if you have a laser.
  20. I actually don't know. The xp shout might be a good thing, as I've definitely done quick runs, with no kills and not go it, but I have looted the shit out of an area.
  21. So scopes are kinda fucked ATM. You move really slow with them. I'd personally ignore them and just whack a red dot or 2x on your mosin. On selling stuff. Just sell everything and get a build you like to take into raids. Keeping Ak's is a good shout tbh as they behave pretty consistently. Be careful with offline mode as it runs way smoother than PvP, but it's great for learning the maps. Seriously though, learn to scav factory. Avoid firefights and listen for PMC fighting. They usually die or evac within the first 10 mins so you can just scav and pick up the remains. Learn how to get to gate 3 and security gate and you're golden. Just near gate 3 there's a shack/container with only 1 enterance/exit that faces gate 3. It's a great place to camp people trying to leave. It might take 10 runs or so, but you can make it consistently out as a scav, making your PMC runs effectively free with a bit of bank too.
  22. Yeah, or does get you a little more can at the traders.
  23. Also, for new players. Just sell everything. Don't get the anxiety of raising with a gun you're scared of loosing, just take the cash.
  24. @moosegrinder I do that all the time. Move my bag into the bodies bag and then forget to drag it back into me. This is my stash from last week, I have another weapons case now Do mechanics gun builder quests as and when you can. You get more back than you put in buying the parts from the flea market.
