Introduction

Escape from Tarkov is not a beginner-friendly game, it is not a friendly game at all, in fact. After watching some videos and reading a few articles, you might expect a rough start, but you most likely don't realize HOW rough. This is why we have decided to compile all the information, that is important from the beginner's perspective, and share it with you. This will be a long read, but there is A LOT to learn and comprehend...

Settings

Graphics

Finding a good balance between the looks and the performance is essential if you want Tarkov to run at high FPS values and still look good. Here is a short explanation of all graphics settings available in the game, together with some recommendations that should help you find an optimal configuration.

Note: If you want to know more about these settings and about how they affect performance, check out our comprehensive EfT Graphics Settings guide, HERE.

Resolution

Resolution is the number of distinct pixels, that can be displayed on a monitor, in each dimension.

Our Recommendation:This should be always set to your monitor's native value.

Aspect Ratio

The Aspect Ratio is a proportion of the displayed image's width to its height.

Our Recommendation:This should be always set to your monitor's native value.

Screen Mode

There are three Screen Modes availablein Tarkov; Fullscreen, Windowed, and Windowed Borderless. The latter option is "the best of both worlds" as itoffersalmost as much freedom as Windowed mode while also taking up full screen which allows you to focus on the game.

Our Recommendation:Windowed Borderless, unless you have severe performance issues with the game.

VSync

VSyncsynchronizes the frame rate of a game with your monitor's refresh rate to prevent screen tearing, but it may cause input lag or, in more extreme cases, cap your FPS at a very low value.

Our Recommendation:Turn it off, it causes more problems than it solves.

Overall Graphics Quality

This gives you a bunch of graphics presets thatallow you to easily match the game's graphics settings to your PC's capabilities.

Our Recommendation:No real need to fiddle with this, as you will adjust every single setting manually anyway. If you want to adjust Graphics quickly, then match this with your PC's strength.

Texture Quality

This changes the resolution of the game's textures. The difference is seen mainly when you are very close to an object (like a brick wall, for example); Low Texture Quality can make the game look bad in confined spaces.

Our Recommendation:Put this on High, unless you want to squeeze that few extra FPS at the cost of greatly decreasing the graphical fidelity of the game.

Shadows Quality

Lowering this setting will make shadows look less sharp and fuzzy.The smaller and more complicated the shadow, the more difference will this setting make when changed from Low to High.

Our Recommendation:Put this on Low for the best performance, unless your graphics card can handle it.

Object LOD Quality

Thisdetermines how the complexity, resolution, and quality of 3D models change with their distance to the player. Object LOD Quality improves rendering efficiencyby decreasing the strain that the game's graphics put on the GPU - take advantage of this.

Our Recommendation:Put this on 2, which is the lowest possible - it will give you up to 20 extra frames.

Overall Visibility

Thisdetermines the distance at which objects, players, and terrain features start to render on your screen. Increasing your Overall Visibility will force your PC to render objects (and Players) that are really far away. This is not as good as it sounds as maps aren't flat and you can't see through terrain and buildings.

Our Recommendation:Set this to 400 and increase to 1000 for very open maps if your PC can handle it. Even when you're sniping, you most likely won't engage people that are further away than 400 meters.

Shadows Visibility

This determines at what distance shadows cast byobjects, players, and terrain features start to disappear. Increasing this boosts the game's immersion, but the performance cost is pretty high.

Our Recommendation:Set this to 40 (minimum value) to increase your framerate by a bit. Most of the time, you don't focus on objects that are more than 40 meters from you,soyou will not notice the lack of shadows.

Antialiasing

This setting determines how well the jagged edges (caused bt the fact that pixels are square in shape) on rendered objects are smoothed out.

Our Recommendation: Put this on FXAAas it actually increases your framerate when compared to having this turned on (Tarkov's graphics for you... this effect ismost likely caused by the number of sharp edges on the grass).

Resampling

This setting changes the resolution of 3D textures depending on their distance to the actor.Supersampling increases the number of pixels and Downsampling reduces it.Resampling has the highest performance impact of all Tarkov's graphics settings.

Our Recommendation:Put this to "1x off"; even the strongest graphics cards will struggle with 4x supersampling (expect to lose over 50 FPS... really).

HBAO

This isis a rendering and shading technology used in ambient lighting calculations. It determines how rendered objects are exposed to ambient lighting (HBAO stands for Horizon-Based Ambient Occlusion).This, basically, makes dark areas look even darker.

Our Recommendation:Turn this off, as it may substantially decrease your framerate in dark, enclosed areas (and it will make spotting enemies in such areas harder).

SSR

This is q post-processing technology that utilizes screen space data to calculate reflections. Thanks to SSR, you can see object reflections inpuddles of waterand other reflective objects (SSR calculates reflections in a way that stimulates the real-life image).

Our Recommendation:Turn this off to increase performance, unless you notice the lack of reflections and it disturbs you.

Anisotropic Filtering

This setting enhances the image quality of textures, on 3D-rendered objects, that are slanted with respect to the player's view (so, not directly in front of the player)where the projection of the texture appears to be non-orthogonal.Without this, textures viewed at different angles might lose their proportions (distant objects, viewed atoblique angles, will appear visibly skewed, blurry, and somewhat flat).Anisotropic Filtering has a great impact on Tarkov's looks, but it does not impact the performance that much.

Our Recommendation:Turn this on,without it, the game looks bad.

Sharpness

Increasing Sharpness makes all objects stand out more against each other while reducing it results in images becoming more blurry (Sharpness increases the contrast of all objects' edges).Some players state that high Sharpness makes spotting enemies easier.

Our Recommendation:It has close to no impacton performance, so it's up to you. We recommend something around 1.7 Sharpnessas higher values might cause your eyes to tire.

Lobby FPS Limit

Rather self-explanatory. This does not have any direct impact on the game's in-Raid FPS, but decreasing it might allow your PC to cool down a bit more between raids and help you indirectly (it will heat up in Raid very fast anyway; if you have overheating problems, think about getting a better PC case or an additional fan).

Our Recommendation:Set this to 60; it makes the game feel a bit smoother when you fiddle with your stash.

Game FPS Limit

A bit less trivial than the "Lobby FPS Limit"; You can rise this up to 120, but it does not guarantee that the game will run at that value; the actual amount of FPS depends on other settings and your PC's specs.

Our Recommendation:Set this to 120, unless you run the game on a Low-End PC and worry that it might overheat on a rare occasion when it reaches high FPS.

Z-Blur

This feature will blur images on your screen while you sprint or quickly turn to increase immersion (rapid movements make focusing your eyes on objects difficult and Z-Blur tries to simulate that).This can make spotting enemies while turning or sprinting much more difficult and thus is rather detrimental.

Our Recommendation:Turn this offas it does not make any real difference and may put you on a disadvantage in the extreme cases.

Chromatic Aberrations

In optics, Chromatic Aberration is defined asa failure of a lens to focus all colors at the same point. This setting simulates this effect by making objects, at the corners of your screen, look out of focus.In photography, Chromatic Aberrations are, in most cases, seen as unwanted artifacts that greatly reduce image quality and are often removed in image post-processing.In Tarkov, this makes your character's vision a bit more "realistic" (human eyes have a field of vision of about 120°, but they can focus on just 30° and the rest appears blurry).

Our Recommendation:Turn this off as it might put you at a disadvantage.

Noise

This setting simulates the Film Grain, which is a result of the presence of small metallic silver particles or dye clouds (which break up from silver halide which is a chemical used commonly in photographic film and paper) and manifests as random optical textures (grain effect).

Our Recommendation:Turn this off, unless you want that classic cinematic feel during gameplay.

Grass Shadows

Self-explanatory; this adds shadows to the grass. This is not very noticeable, most of the time; unless you go prone in high grass.

Our Recommendation:Turn this off to increase your FPS by a bit. You will not notice the difference unless you go prone in high grass (in which case Grass Shadows will make spotting enemies more difficult).

Movement, Stances, and Chosen Controls/Key Binds

Some controls options, present in Escape from Tarkov, are rarely seen in other games. The game puts emphasis on realistic gameplay and a classic HUD is replaced by other mechanics because of that. This might cause some confusion for new players (how do I check how much ammo I have left?!). Learning all the hotkeys and remembering what they do is essential if you want to get better at the game.

Tip: Remember to rebind your in-game controls so that they feel more familiar right from the start. This will speed up the learning process; there's quite a lot to learn when it comes to controlling your Character in Tarkov.

Note:We have decided to feature only the more unusual controls here; this is why, for example, movement-related ones are missing (they are pretty standard, and featuring them would just make the list harder to read as a whole).

Movement

If you are used to the movement model from arcade First Person Shooters, like Counter Strike, you might be surprised by the complexity of Tarkov's system. In EfT, every possible move-related action is designed to simulatereal-life, and things like encumbrance and lack of comfort caused by wearing heavy armor are taken into account. If you want to cosplay as a walking tank, don't expect to move anywhere near as fast, or as smooth, as someone using a light loadout. While most of FPS games constrict your movement options to sprinting, running, walking, and "sneaking" (with all of these movement options having pre-designated moving speeds), Tarkov lets youfreely adjust your speed by scrolling your Mousewheel. Movement-related actions, your character can take, can be broken down into 5 categories:

  • Sprinting - The fastest and the noisiest way of moving around in Tarkov. Sprinting depletes your stamina (encumbrance and type of armor you wear affects this) and makes your steps very loud (so it might compromise your position). Try to use Sprint strategically and treat your Stamina as a valuable resource,because without it you won't be able to effectively engage enemies or even perform certain moves. Important: Armors often affect (lower) your Sprinting speed.
  • Walking - The default movement option in EfT. It does not tire you and generates much less noise than sprinting, but you still can be heard. The Armor you're wearing affects your walking speed.
  • Slow Walking - The slowest and the quietest walking pace. It allows you to sneak around without making too much noise and stops you frommaking sounds while traversing through the foliage. Moreover, Slow Walking will not generate surface-specific sounds (enemies will not be able to distinguish on what surface you're walking even if they hear you). It is done by pressing Caps Lock or scrolling your Mouse Wheel down. Important: Enemies can and will still hear you Slow Walking if they are close enough.
  • Sidestepping - This movement option lets you move from side to side, which is handy while peeking corners and trying to dodge incoming fire (although, finding some cover is always better). You can Sidestep by pressing LAlt +Q(Left)/+E(Right); if you press and immediately release, your character will Sidestep in the chosen direction and immediately return to the starting position, if you hold the hotkeys, your character will Sidestep and hold his new position until you release them.
  • Sliding -After you pick up enough speed while Sprinting, you can perform a slide by pressing LShift+C. This can be used to cross the last bit of open area before cover more safely, for example. The problem is that Sliding locks your character from input during the maneuver (so you can't change directions) and generates a loud noise.

Stances

Tarkov offers three main Stances - Prone, Crouching, and Standing - each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Knowing how to utilize them to their full potential is a vital part of the game and combining them with the before-mentioned movement options is necessary if you want to survive in a Raid:

  • Prone - While lying on the ground, you can make use of very low cover, your accuracy is improved, and your silhouette is somewhat hard to notice, however, you can't move without making noise (your whole body touches the ground and makes "scraping" noises while you move), your movement options are greatly reduced, and you can't silently rise up. This stance is the least versatile, but it still has itsuses.
  • Crouching - The middle ground between lying prone and standing up. This Stance is the best of both worlds; it allows you to use cover effectively, improves your aim, and allows you to move very quietly, but also makes you slow. If you want to sneak somewhere, hide without limiting your movement options, or aim accurately - this is your best option. While Crouching, you can still adjust your overall movement speed, just like you would while Standing/Walking.
  • Standing -The default Stance that allows you to move the quickest (including Sprinting), but it makes your silhouette clearly visible from a distanceand your moves, performed in this stance, generate the most noise. While crossing open ground that does not feature any cover, this is your best option (just make sure you have enough stamina to sprint).

Note: On top of the three pre-set stances, you are also able to smoothly adjust your posture withMouse Scrool+ +C/Mouse Scroll- + C.This allows you to pick over obstacles of different heights and find a balance between the noise you make and the speed you move at.

Chosen Controls/Key Binds
Switch ScopesBy default: "RMB + LCtrl". If you have mounted 2 or more sets of Optics on your weapon or the Optic you use has backup sights, this key combination will allow you to cycle between them.
Change Scope MagnificationBy default:"RMB + LAlt". Some long-range scopes have adjustable zoom, this allows you to use that feature.
Check Time

By default:"O" (Press). Shows you how much time is left before the Raid ends.

Important: If you fail to extract from the Raid before the time ends, you will lose all items you've acquired during that Raid.

Check Time and Exits

By default:"O" (Double Tap). On top of showing you low much time you have left before the Raid ends, this also shows you which extraction points are currently active.

Important:It is a good idea to check this immediately after spawning (and maybe finding some cover first), as it will allow you to plan your advance into the Raid better.

Toggle Tactical DeviceBy default:"T" (Press). If you have a tactical flashlight or a laser mounted, this will turn them on.
Switch Tactical Device ModeBy default:"T + LCtrl" (Press). If you have a tactical device that has multiple modes, likeX400 Tactical Flashlight which is a Flashlight+Laser combo), this command allows you to switch between the modes.
InteractBy default:"F". Pick things up, open doors, and other things like that - this will be the key you use the most.
Throw GrenadeBy default:"G". Quickthrow Grenade; Nades are selected from left to right, from your Tactical Rig and Pockets. Grandes placed in your backpack can't be used without moving them first.
Quick Reload WeaponBy default:"R" (Double Tap). This is faster than the regular reload, but your character drops the ejected magazine on the ground (which is how the time is saved - don't forget to pick it up afterward).
Next/Previous MagazineBy default:"Mouse Scrool+ +R/Mouse Scroll- + R" (Hold R + Scroll). By default, magazines are chosen from left to right; this allows you to cycle between them.
Check AmmoBy default:"T + LAlt" (Press). This is how you check how much ammunition you have left in your gun. You will not get the exact number, but rather an estimation ("Full", "About Half", "Empty", and so on).
Fire ModeBy default:"B" (Press). Many weapons have multiple firing modes, this allows you to switch between them.
Check Fire ModeBy default:"B + LAlt" (Press). If you don't remember which firing mode you have selected, this allows you to check it without switching modes.
Check ChamberBy default:"T + LShift" (Press). Self-explanatory - us this to make sure that you have a round chambered, so you are not surprised by a "click" when you expect the weapon to fire a shot.
Increase/Decrease Movement SpeedBy default:"Mouse Scrool+ /Mouse Scroll-" This allows you to smoothly adjust your character's movement speed.
Next/Previous Walk Pose

By default:"Mouse Scrool+ +C/Mouse Scroll- + C". In Tarkov, you can smoothly change your moving posture - this is how you toggle between them.

Note: The faster you move (so, the more straightened you are), the more noise your steps make but also the faster you move.

Lean Right/Lean LeftBy default:"E/Q". Leaning allows you to pick corners without exposing your character's whole body to possible enemies.
Smooth Lean Right/ Smooth Lean LeftBy default:"LAlt+D/LAlt+A" With this, you can adjust your "leaning angle" and pick just a bit or make a full lean. To reset your stance, use default Lean hotkeys (E/Q by default).
Overhead Blind FireBy default:"W + LAlt". This allows you to blind-fire from behind a low cover.
Right Side Blind FireBy default:"S + LAlt".This allows you to blind-fire around a right-side corner.
Examine WeaponBy default:"L". Your character will take a closer look at the weapon he's holding; it might allow you to spot if something's missing (this is handy for checking weapons found on Scavs etc.).
Fold StockBy default:"L + LAlt". Folding stock on a weapon that has this feature makes it take up less space in your backpack. However, shooting a weapon when it's stock is folded is a bad idea (you might find a weapon with a folded stock in-Raid; this is also how you unfold it).
MumbleBy default: "Y" (Press). Makes your character mumble; any nearby Scavs will respond to you with a voice line.
InventoryBy default:"Tab". Self-explanatory. Remember to find some cover before fiddling with your inventory during a Raid.
Scope Elevation Up/DownBy default:"PgUp/PgDown" (Press). This allows you to adjust your optics for long-range firing (gravity, loss of velocity over distance, and some other things affect your bullets, so it's a good idea to apply some corrections if your scope has this option).
DiscardBy default:"Del". If you want to quickly drop something, this is how you do it.
Hold BreathBy default:"LAlt". Holding Breath improves your aim (it reduces weapon sway), but doing it for too long will tire your character.

Gear, Stash, and the Hideout

Firstly, your Character can carry a limited amount of stuff and your Stash is of a limited size. However, there are ways around that - tactical gear, like Vests and Backpacks, allows you to carry more items, while specialized containers allow you to store more goods in your stash.

Gear

In Tarkov, there is no such thing as a pre-set loadout - in a Raid, you will have only the things you have brought to that Raid with you. Your Character has multiple "slots" that can be fitted with gear, these are:

  • Earpiece - Here, you can equip various sound-enhancing equipment, like military headphones. Sence of hearing is extremely importantin this game, so this should not be overlooked.
  • Headwear - This slot is used mainly for Helmets, but other things, like Hats and Night Vision Googles, can also be worn. Headpieces other than protective helmets are not recommended - if you want Night Vision, there are helmets with special mounts for it.
  • Face Cover - This slot is used for breathing aids, like gas masks, however, Radiation and Chemical pollution was not yet implemented, so it's purely cosmetic as of right now. There is a little exception - a Light Armored Mask with Armor Class 1 that will, however, not protect you too well - use face shields, that can be attached to some helmets, instead.
  • Armband - You can equip armbands of various colors which, in theory at least, will enable you to recognize your teammates. From our experience - don't count on it and rely on accurate voice coms instead.
  • Body Armor - Self-explanatory; Plate Carriers, Soft Armors, and Armor Vests go in this slot. Depending on the type, they protecta different number of bodyparts - Some protect Thorax only, some Thorax and Stomach, while full protection ones cover Thorax, Stomach, and Arms. Different Armors have different Movement, Turn, and Ergonomics penalties.More on Body Armors and Armor Classes later.
  • Eyewear - This might seem like another cosmetic slot, but eyewear actually reduces the size and the number of raindrops on your screen, so things like googles can be useful during bad weather.
  • On Sling - One of two primary weapon slots.
  • On Back -One of two primary weapon slots.
  • Holster - A Sidearm Slot.
  • Scabbard - A Melee weapon slot.
  • Tactical Rig -One of the most important equipment slots. Chest Rigs serve as storage for all items you might need to access quickly, so meds, grenades, magazines, and so on. Some high-tier Tactical Rigs have A LOT of slots (up to 25). Moreover, some of them double as Body Armor, so you don't have to equip anything in the "Body Armor" slot, or even wear double protection. Armored Rigs usually have Movement, Turn, and Ergonomics Penalties.
  • Pockets - These offer you 4 1x1 quick-access slots for grenades and smaller medical items, like Bandages or Splints.
  • Backpack -Your main storage space for stuff that you don't need to access quickly (so loot, mainly). Backpacks can greatly vary in size (from 6 to 48 slots) and, just like all other equipment, are shown on your character which means that big and bulky backpacks can compromise your position and make hiding from enemies much harder.
  • Pouch - This slot holds your Secure Container. Normally, all items you carry on you are lost when you are killed in a Raid; items held in the Secure Container are an exception. Putyour most valuable stuff in there to avoid losing it. Standard Secure Container has only 4 slots, but you can acquire bigger ones later in the game.

Stash

Stash is where you will be holding your loot, equipment, money, provisions, and all other things you decide to bring from a Raid. A Standard Edition of EfT provides you with a "small" 10x28 grid-size stash that can be expanded by upgrading the Stash module in your hideout (these upgrades are among the most expensive, however).Standard Edition also starts you off you with some low-tiergear, meds, and provisions.

Small stash is one of the most limiting factors of Escape from Tarkov, especially in the end game when players have a lot of loot and resources. Complying to the below-described hints will help you alleviate the problem:

  • Backpacks can be stacked - thesecan be put in one another, which means that storingan infinite amount of backpacks takes the same amount of space as storing just one (if they can fit inside one another). There is one requirement that a backpack has to meet for this to work, however: Its inner dimensions have to be the sameor bigger thanits outer dimensions. This means that this trick will not work with 3V G Partus 3-Dayand Oakley Mechanism backpacks, but a Blackjack 50 backpack will not only work but also "create" some additional storage space for you.
  • Every Container in your stash can be filled with stuff - backpacks that don't hold other backpacks, Tactical Vests, and other containers can be filled with things to save the stash space.
  • Mods attached to weapons take less (or zero) space - use this to your advantage and mount your stashed mods on weapons that you don't currently use. A single firearm can be fitted with three optical devices and a flashlight, for example, and this does not increase its grid size. This method is a great way of saving some space without buying any additional expensive containers.
  • Don't forget to fold your guns - if a firearm has a folding stock, fold it! This way it will take less space and you will fit more in your stash or a dedicated WeaponContainer.
  • Detachpistol grips and magazines from guns - this will make them take one less row of space, which translates to 3 to 5 additional storage cells per firearm. This is also a great way of maximizing the efficiency of all Containers dedicated to gun storage.
  • Hoarding is a bad habit - if you have stuff that you will not use in the foreseeable future,sell it. This will free stash space for the stuff that you actually use. If an asset is easy to buy cheaply, you should not hesitate for even a moment; cash takes less space and is much more practical than twenty AK magazines...

Gear and Stash in-game window you'll see after you log-in to EfT for the first time.

Hideout

Hideout is your personal hidey-hole and a safe house in the war-torn city of Tarkov. This is where you store all your loot, heal your wounds, practice combat skills, and craft some of the essential items.

The Hideout is comprised of multiple modules (some of them have multiple levels), all of which have different effects/bonuses:

  • Air Filtering Unit - 40% leveling boost for all Physical Skills.
  • Bitcoin Farm - Allows you to "farm" bitcoins by using Graphics Cards.
  • Booze Generator - Here, you can brew the "Fierce Hatchling" Moonshine.
  • Generator - Itpowers all modules that require electricity.
  • Heating - Increases Energy Regeneration Rate (and later negative effects removal rate) while your PMC remains in the Hideout.
  • Illumination - Lights up your hideout (it's located underground, so its quite dark without the proper lighting).
  • Intelligence Center - Reduces the cooldown of "Svav missions" available from the Scav Case module, boosts your quest rewards, and allows you to produce some "intelligence" type loot.
  • Lavatory - this module serves as a crafting station for multiple kinds of items (including backpacks, bandages, cleaning agents, and even containers and tactical rigs).
  • Library -30% leveling boost for all Practical Skills and +15% additional Experience.
  • Medstation -this module serves as a crafting station for Medical Supplies and allows your PMC's health to regenerate while he remains in the Hideout.
  • Nutrition Unit -this module serves as a crafting station for Provisions and allows your PMC's healthand Energy,and Hydration to regenerate while he remains in the Hideout.
  • Rest Space - removes negative effects and boosts your PMC's in-Hideout Health and Energy regeneration rates. It also increases your PMC's max energy by 10 (at level 3 only).
  • Scav Case -Allows you to send groups of Scavs on, well, scavenging missions.
  • Security - Currently has no function.
  • Shooting Range - Allows you to test your weapons inside the Hideout.
  • Solar Power - Reduces fuel consumption by 50%.
  • Stash - increases the size of your PMC Stash.
  • Vents -Currently have no function.
  • Water Collector - Boosts your PMC's Hydration Regeneration Rate while he remains in the Hideout and (at level 3) allows you to produce Purified Water.
  • Workbench -this module serves as a crafting station for multiple types of items (Weapon Parts, Ammunition, Weapons, Technical Loot Items, Grenades, and more). It also allows you to customize your weapon off-raid.

Currency, Flea Market, Traders, and Bartering

Escape from Tarkov features a player-driven dynamic economy that is affected not only by in-game actions but also by the real-life market changes! For example, the price of in-game Physical Bitcoin reflects the value of real-life Bitcoin. Moreover, there are several currencies available in the game and their exchange prices fluctuate constantly. To make things even more interesting, you can trade not only with money but also with multiple items found in Raid - Each Trader has a set of Barter Trades that let you exchange miscellaneous items for much more useful ones. All of this makes the game's economic system unique and engaging, especially for an online FPS.

Currency

The main currency of Tarkov is the Rouble (₽) which is accepted by 7 out of 8 Traders; the 8th - Peacekeeper - only accepts Dollars ($). The third currency you'll find in Tarkov is Euro (€), which is mainly used for buying stuff from the Mechanic. You can earn all three currencies in multiple ways:

  • Roubles can be looted, awarded for completing Quests, or gained by selling items to all Traders except Peacekeeper. Only 175000 Roubles can be held in your PMC inventory at a time.
  • Dollars can be l looted, awarded by Peacekeeper by completing his Quests, or gained by selling items to him.Only 3000 Dollars can be held in your PMC inventory at a time.
  • Euros can be looted or bought from LL2 Skier; no Trader will pay you for your loot in Euros, sadly. Only 3000 Euros can be held in your PMC inventory at a time.

To more or less reflect the state of the real-life foreign exchange market, Currency ratios in Tarkov are changed over time. This means that you can actually lose or gain money by keeping your savings in a certain currency.

Flea Market

Flea Market is an auction house of sorts that features all AI Trader and Player-made exchange offers - the system allows both money and items ascirculating mediums, which means that you can ask for a certain thing in return for your goods, instead of money. The Flea Market had a few iterations to this day and multiple restrictions and rules were imposed on if for balance and fair play reasons; these include:

  • Flea Market becomes available only after you achieve PMC level 10.
  • Only Items with the "Found in Raid" status* can be sold on the Flea Market.
  • A Tax is collected for each created offer; its exact value is calculated by a special formula that takestotal offer value and some other factors into account.
  • You can offer only 1 Item at a time but can ask for up to 3 in return.
  • You have access to a limited amount of offer slots - raising your "Merchant Reputation"** increases your limit. At the start, you can post 1 offer; this number can rise up to 18 when you reach max Reputation.
  • You can extend your offer's durationby clicking on the small up arrow next to the time remaining on the offer.
  • Goods gained through successful auctions are mailed to you via Ragman, one of the in-game Traders.

*"Found in Raid" status is given to all items you found during a Raid if you successfully extract from that Raid, but with some restrictions - You can't extract before the 10-minute mark in the Raid passes and you have to earnat least 600 experience (if you get a "Run Through" status after you extract, your found items will not count as "Found in Raid").

**"Merchant Reputation" is gained or lost based on your performance on the Flea Market - each successfully completed deal, and every 50K Roubles gained, increase your Reputation, whileexpired and removed deals decreaseyour Reputation.

Traders and Bartering

Traders are the foundation of Tarkov's economy, but not only that - they are alsoQuestgivers, and some of them are Handymen, and Medics. Each Trader has his own field of expertise and an area of interest - they buy and sell specific goods and their Quests revolve around certain aspects of life (and death) in Tarkov. As you progress through their Tasks and gain PMC levels, you will gradually unlock Traders' inventories which will give you access to more and more powerful weapons, equipment, and consumables.

Not everything can be bought for hard currency - some deals offered by Traders require you to procure certain goods that are especially desired by them. These Barter Trades often give you earlieraccess to the more powerful items and gear but are also harder to make.

If you want to know more about Tarkov Traders and Bartering, you can check out our comprehensive guide on the subject, HERE.

Health, Hydration, Energy, and Status Effects

Escape from Tarkov features a full Body-Health-System aimed at simulating real-life body conditions (including pain, fractures, and bleeding), damage effects (injuries to different body parts will have different consequences), satiety, and overall physical condition.

The overall condition of your character is described with three main parameters:

  • Health -Every body part has its own HP value and there are 7 body parts in total (Head - 35 HP, Thorax - 85 HP, Stomach - 70 HP, Arms - 60 HP each, and Legs - 65 HP each) which results in 440 total HP. If this number falls to 0, you are dead, but it's nowhere near as simple as that. If HP of your Head or Thorax falls to 0, you are also dead. If HP of any of your Arms or Legs, or Stomach falls to 0, any subsequent Damage to that body part will be distributed among all other body parts which will cripple you and, you guessed it, quickly lead to death. On top of all this, taking damage often results in gaining negative status effects (both permanent and temporary - more on that later).
  • Hydration - This indicates how thirsty your character is. Normally, you will be able to survive an average-length Raid without drinking, but suffering critical damage to Your Stomach will cause you to dehydrate extremely quickly which is a large problem. After your Hydration reaches 0, you have ~30 seconds left before you die. To increase Hydration, simply take a drink - all non-alcoholic beverages available in the game can be used for this, and they are commonly found in Raids.
  • Energy - This indicates how hungry your character is.Normally, you will be able to survive an average-length Raid without eating, but bleeding and/or suffering critical damage to Your Stomach will cause you rapidly loose Energy. To regain Energy during a raid, you have to eat - food can be taken with you or found during a Raid. When your Energy falls to 0, you are basically dead so try to not let it happen.

Status Effects

Status Effects simulate various injuries, body conditions, and the effects of using drugs. These can be divided into Body Part-Specific and General effects, and also into Temporary and Permanent (these include destroyed body parts)where Permanent Status Effects require special surgical kits to remove.

Body-Part-SpecificStatus Effects
Head
  • Blacked out (Destroyed); Permanent Effect - Instant death if caused by taking damage. If caused by bleeding - any subsequent damage you suffer to the Head results in death.Important: This includes damage distributed from other Blacked out limbs (so, if bleeding caused your Head to Black-outand you take damage to a Blacked-Out Stomach, for example, you're dead).
Thorax
  • Blacked out (Destroyed);Permanent Effect - Instant death if caused by taking damage.If caused by bleeding - any subsequent damage you suffer to the Thoraxresults in death.Important: This includes damage distributed from other Blacked out limbs (so, if bleeding caused your Thorax to Black-outand you take damage to a Blacked-Out Stomach, for example, you're dead).
Stomach
  • Blacked out (Destroyed);Permanent Effect -Greatly increased Energy loss and Dehydration rate. Any subsequent Damage taken to the Blacked out Stomach will be distributed to all other body parts at 1.5x rate (so, taking 10 damage to the destroyed stomach results in taking 15 damage distributed among the whole body). This condition can be removed with special Surgical kits (CMS and Surv12 - more on that later).
Right Arm
  • Blacked out (Destroyed);Permanent Effect -67% penalty to reloading, aiming down sights, and weapon drawing time. Searching Containers and using Items takes 50% more time. Any subsequent Damage taken to the Blacked out Armwill be distributed to all other body parts at 0.7x rate (so, taking 10 damage to the destroyed Arm results in taking 7 damage distributed among the whole body).This condition can be removed with special Surgical kits (CMS and Surv12 - more on that later).
  • Fractured -67% penalty to reloading, aiming down sights, and weapon drawing time. Searching Containers and using Items takes 50% more time.
Left Arm
  • Blacked out (Destroyed);Permanent Effect-50% penalty to reloading, aiming down sights, and weapon drawing time. Searching Containers and using Items takes 67% more time. Any subsequent Damage taken to the Blacked out Armwill be distributed to all other body parts at 0.7x rate (so, taking 10 damage to the destroyed Arm results in taking 7 damage distributed among the whole body).This condition can be removed with special Surgical kits (CMS and Surv12 - more on that later).
  • Fractured -50% penalty to reloading, aiming down sights, and weapon drawing time. Searching Containers and using Items takes 67% more time.
Legs
  • Blacked out (Destroyed);Permanent Effect -45% Movement speed penalty for each Blacked out Leg and decreased jump height.Any subsequent Damage taken to Blacked out Leg will be distributed to all other body parts at 1.0x rate (so, taking 10 damage to the destroyed Arm results in taking 10 damage distributed among the whole body).This condition can be removed with special Surgical kits (CMS and Surv12 - more on that later).
  • Fractured -45% Movement speed penalty for each Blacked out Leg (with both your legs broken/Blacked out, your speed is reduced to a crawl)and decreased jump height. Sprinting with a broken leg (possible when under the effects of Painkillers) will cause further damage to it (the end result is its Destruction/Blacking out).

Meds, Stimulants, and Provisions

After seeing the complexity of Tarkov's health system, the sheer number of medicaments and other consumables available in the game should not surprise you too much. These range from simple provisions, like Army Crackers, to powerful stimulants with multiple beneficial and negative effects.

  • Meds - As the name suggests, these consumables serve to restore yourhit points and cure some of the negative Status Effects. Medical Itemscan be devices into three main categories:
    • Drugs - Items that mainly remove pain and allow you to negate the effects of broken limbs.
    • Injury Treatment Items - First aid equipment that will let you stop bleeding,immobilize broken limbs, and even quick perform field surgeries to restore body parts that were completely broken during an engagement.
    • Medkits -These serve mainly to restore your health, but more advanced kinds can also remove Bleeding, or even heal Fractures, Pain, and Contusions. Each Medkit has a unique set of properties (use time, Health restored per single use, Health Pool, and the ability to remove certain Status Effects).
  • Stimulants -These powerful combat drugs were added to the game in patch 0.12.7 and became extremely controversial right from the start. Each stimulant gives you a different set of Buffs and Debuffs that affect your character in a very strong way (for some time, certain stims even allowed you to survive headshots - luckily, that got hot-fixed quickly). Some of them increase damage resistance, some of them allow you to carry more loot, some give you almost infinite stamina, while others simply provide you with very high Skill increases.
  • Provisions -At first glancethe simplest category of consumables, but this is Tarkov so things cannot be just "simple" or "easy". Provisions restore your Energy and Hydration, except sometimes they don't - they might restore Energy, but actually lower Hydration which can be rather problematic... Moreover, some Provisions can be exchanged for various powerful Items via the barter trade system, used as crafting components, or have to be found In-Raid for certain quests. We will include only the more interesting/usefulones on our list to not bore you with stuff that serves only to replenish yourHydration/Energy - this way you'll know is something is too expensive to just eat.

Armor, Weapons, and Ammunition

All weapon and armor ballistics are modeled as realistically as possible in Tarkov. Bullets drop off over distance because they are affected by gravity and air friction. They can penetrate objectsor ricochet right off them (this depends on the impacted material), they might even fragment (which will cause extra damage if the fragmentation happens after the bullet penetrates the player's armor). As a bullet travels through the air, it gradually loses its velocity and, because of that, its armor penetration capabilities. If a bullet is stopped by armor, you will only take minor blunt damage, but if it manages to penetrate, you will be in a world of hurt.

Armor

There are 6 Armor Classes in the game, starting from Class 1 (the weakest) and leading up to Class 6 (the strongest). While Class 1 Armor will only stop basic buckshot, Class 6 is able to withstand everything except specialized Armor-Piercing ammunition. All Armors have their durability*; if a bullet is stopped by the armor, it looses some of it (the exact amount depends on the bullet's damage and armor damage % values). After the durability is reduced low enough, the armor stops to function and you receive full damage from all subsequent hits.

What happens after the Armor is struck by a bullet is determined by its Armor Class and the bullet's penetration power. Overall, a bullet that has at least 45 penetration power will penetrate Class 6 Armor without too much of a problem (depending on the bullet type - 2 to 5 hits; this is a very rough estimate, of course).

*Damaged Armors can be repaired with the help of Traders, but each repair reducesthe maximum durability of the repaired armor. Moreover, depending on the material they're made of, some armors lose more max durability after repair (ceramic armors are more fragile and harder to repair overall).

Note: As a general rule, you can assume that Class 3 Armor is enough to protect you against most Scavs, but you will need at least Class 5 Armor to have a chance against ammunition used by most players (this leaves Class 4 Armor in a rather peculiar spot).

Weapons

There are over 80 Weapons available in Escape from Tarkov, and this number rises with every patch. While some of them are less powerful than others, any weapon is a lethal tool when loaded with appropriate ammunition and held by a skilled PMC. Every weapon has a set of characteristics, which include:

  • Horizontal and Vertical recoil - this determines how much the weapon will move vertically and horizontally when firing. The less the better.
  • Effective Distance - the maximum range at which it is possible to land consecutive hits with the given firearm.
  • Ergonomics - overall handling of the weapon. This affects ADS (aiming down sights) speed, amount of noise generated when ADSing, and the stamina drain while ADSing.

Recoil and Ergonomics values of almost every weapon can be fine-tuned by replacing parts. In Tarkov, all weapons are modular and there are hundreds of weapon parts and attachments available. Some of the parts are extremely expensive, however, and it is not uncommon to have parts that outvalue the weapon itself.

If you're interested, we have made a separate guide on the budget weapons and modding, it will help you make your starting weapons more reliable without spending a fortune. You can check it out HERE.

Ammunition

Choosing appropriate ammunition is the most important thing when it comes to combat effectiveness in EfT. Even the most advanced and highly-modded weapon will not be effective if loaded with terrible ammunition. When you are new to the game, or there was a wipe and you only have access to Level 1 Traders, your options are rather limited. Here is a shortlist of the most reliable ammunition types available right from the start (if there aren't anyavailable for a given caliber, we'll skip it):

  • 12/70 Shotgun- 12x70 7mm Buckshot; deals high damage to flesh, aim at the legs. Available from Prapor, Skier, and Jaeger.
  • 20/70 Shotgun - 20/70 Slug "Poleva-3"; it has weak penetration but deals high damage and it has an accuracy boost, aim at the legs.Available from Jaeger.
  • 9x18mm Makarov - 9x18mm PM Pst gzh; not really effective, but there is nothing better at LL1.Available from Prapor.
  • 9x19mm Parabellum - 9x19mm Pst gzh; surprisingly effective against most early face shields, aim at the legs when against heavily-armored targets. Available from Mechanic.
  • 7.62x25mm Tokarev - 7.62x25mm TT LRN; a "leg meta" ammo, aim for unarmored legs. Available from Jaeger.
  • 4.6x30mm -4.6x30mm Action SX; rather irrelevant at the start, as you will not have access to MP7 early (leg meta ammo). Available from Mechanic.
  • .366 TKM - .366 TKM FMJ; the only choice, aim at legs against armored targets. Available from Skier and Jaeger.
  • 5.45x39mm - 5.45x39mm PS; the best available, but it still is not "good". 5.45x39mm AKs become viable later, really. Available from Prapor after completing the task "Delivery from the past".
  • 5.56x45mm NATO - 5.56x45mm M855; this goes through Class 3 Armor in 1 hit. Available from Peacekeeper.
  • 7.62x39mm - 7.62x39mm PS; one of the best ammo types available at the start.7.62x39mm weapons are among the most viable in the early game because of this ammunition. Available from Prapor.
  • 7.62x51mm NATO - 7.62x51mm TPZ SP; quite effective early, but at the cost of reduced accuracy. Available from Jaeger.
  • 7.62x54mmR - 7.62x54R LPS gzh; extremely lethal projectile, with 42 penetration and 81 Damage it will 2-shot people wearing Class 4 Armor.

Your first Raid

Let us face it, you will most likely not survive your first couple of Raids. Escape from Tarkov is brutal for new players; you will be thrown straight into the blender together with experienced veterans who will have every advantage on you... luckily, there are a few things you can do to prepare yourself (to some extent) and speed up the learning process.

Tips and Tricks

  • Offline Mode - you might have heard about this many times before, but we'll say it again; Playing in Offline Mode is, by far, the best way to learn the maps. Don't go into a live Raid unless you already played a few offline hours on it - learning loot spawns and extracts is a bare minimum.
  • Have a good map opened somewhere - there are great loot maps, of every Tarkov area, available on the official wiki. Always have the relevant map opened during a Raid (on a second monitor, phone, tablet, or even in your browser). These 3rd party maps are 100 times better than the in-game ones - use them.
  • Be prepared to die - your survival rate is not likely to be higher than 40%, even if you are a skilled player - always expect to die and lose all your equipped gear and carried loot.
  • Do not over-equip yourself - "gear fear" is a common term in Tarkov; don't wear equipment that is too expensive for you to replace. Even if you loot something great - sell it and use the money to create a couple of more budget loadouts, as doing this will ensure that you won't despair too much when you die.
  • Learn the controls well - this is obvious, but you will forget how to check your ammunition while under stress - practicing and "playing" with controls in the offline mode is a good way to familiarize yourself with them.
  • Make an effort to memorize Penetration Values of different ammo types - you might load ammunition you know before a Raid, but sooner or later you will be forced to use a looted gun; better to know how the ammunition, it's loaded with, will perform.
  • Know where to aim with the ammunition you're currently using - some ammo types have low penetration and high damage - aimat legs when using these; there is no armor available in Tarkov that would protect one's legs.
  • Tasks are the best source of experience - by completing tasks, you will level up the fastest. Not only that, but you will also increase Trader's reputation and gain access to higher tiers of equipment faster. Try to prioritize maps you have active objectives on.
  • Scav Runs age good, but... - If you are completely broke, Scav runs will help you build up some economy. Don't prioritize them, however, as they don't develop your PMC character at all (no experience, no skill increases, nothing).
  • Prioritize one map and perfect your loot runs on it -this will allow you to make money quickly and get to the best loot on a given map before anyone else gets to it. To do this well, you have to know the map inside out. Customs is regarded as the most "beginner-friendly" map (beginner-friendly in Tarkov terms, so still extremely tricky, but less so than the others).

END NOTE

The learning curve in Tarkov is steep, to say the least. We hope that this guide will help you learn the game and allow you to avoid at least some of the confusion associated with Tarkov's brutal gameplay.
