GAFPLAYS: Escape from Tarkov

Hated the game at first and thought it was very boring because I rarely saw interactions in every video I saw

Played the game, saw how much of a tactical shooter it is (my cup of tea) and definitely fell in love with EFT!

Inventory management is exhausting at first but once you get the hang of it then you don't have to worry bout anything

Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore, realistic milsim survival online PC shooter with RPG elements. The basic premise is to outfit your character, then go out on a mission (solo or in a group) against other players and AI scavengers, where you'll complete objectives, kill opponents and take their gear, loot buildings, and attempt to extract from the map alive. If you die, you'll lose most of what's on your character (insurance can mitigate this as long as no one loots you). If you successfully extract, you'll carry back everything you had on you and be able to stash it for use later or sell it.



This game is intense. By risking all of your equipped gear every time you set out on a mission, you're provided immediate stakes that amplify the nerves of any firefight. As opposed to other games in the same vein, though, there is persistence with most of your progression through a safe stash of the rest of your gear, your secure container (which can carry a handful of items out of combat even if you die), equipment insurance, level and skill progression, and cash. There is also a recovery mechanic that allows you to join a mission (a "raid") as a scavenger ("scav"), where you won't risk any of your gear and spawn with random gear that you can bring back to your stash to use with your main character if you successfully extract.

Tarkov has been around for a few years, but it recently hit its stride with patch 0.12, and has quickly shot up to become one of the most watched games on Twitch.

Solo or with a group, if you have the balls to handle Tarkov there's a lot of fun to be had.



Let's use this thread to discuss, coordinate groups, and get new folks into the game.
Holy shit, the big man made a non-pinned post. How did I miss this. I like it. Would any be interested in giving me a crash course in this game? I am so lost in this game

I no longer play, but feel free to ask any questions. I'll do my best to be as helpful as possible.

Massive Tip: Always go to the market and inspect as much items as you can so you save time when you loot in-game

Bought it a few days ago, the game is amazing. They've got a great core gameplay loop and the gun porn is over the top. My only complaints right now are mostly technical. Servers are a big problem, especially in the week-end and the framerate is inconsistent to say the least.

Game just had its first big tournament last night. All the popular important streamer guys were in it.

Hopefully this gives a big influx of players (cash) so they can fix the server problems.
 
Imo, the best strategy you can focus on is the appropriate way of leveling. Levelin in EFT is extremly crucial. In many MMO titles that you can find, missions available for players from NPCs are proven to be the best way of gaining experience. Although Escape from Tarkov is more of a shooter than MMORPG, there are also quests available for completion. These awards better rewards in terms of quick leveling than other activities that you might be doing. From the completion of Prapor, Skier, Therapist, Peacekeeper, Mechanic, and Ragman tasks, you can get around 1.2 Million Experience. It means that over half of the way towards level 40 is behind you after quests. There are over 120 tasks available for completion, but we were counting that you will be able to finish around 110 of them since a quest or two might be too difficult, especially killing bosses.

Absolutely amazing strategy
