We’re now delving into the more advanced tactics associated with playing Tarvok to a higher level. I had hoped to do this in one piece, but as ever my ambition was outdone by my need to write too much… so it’s now being split into two pieces, the first of which will cover Looting and Movement.

The previous piece on the Meta game can be found here and the first piece with the links to all the others can be found here.

Another long post this folks, so get comfortable.

Only a few more pieces left folks, you’re doing great. Hang in there. The previous piece on the Hideout can be found here, where we go into detail on the Hideout and what it has to offer.

So, as with most games now it’s not enough to consider the game in isolation, you also need to think about the Meta Game. So how exactly do you do that in Tarkov?

Well, It’s more straightforward than you’d think.

Ok, time to delve into what makes an effective load-out. Which guns and gear should you be considering and what play-style best suits you. The previous piece in this series on Trades and missions can be found here.

This ‘should‘ be pretty straightforward though it does come with the following disclaimer: The advice here is based off my particular play-style (which I’ll explain in a minute), but I have tried to make some general comments based on other styles as well. Depending on how you play you may want to adjust appropriately.

It’s going to be a looong post though, so maybe grab a cuppa…

Escape From Tarkov: The guide starts here

Escape From Tarkov: The guide starts here

Escape from Tarkov has been available since July 2017 and has come a long way since then. It’s been constantly developed and updated by BattleState Games, and is turning into something very special indeed having exploded in popularity through some genius marketing on Twitch.

I’ve been playing it since late 2018 and have put in a ridiculous amount of time in it- I’m not exactly sure how much as the stats are reset each wipe, but the last time I checked I was at over 100 hours in the last wipe alone. What?!?! Don’t look at me like that….

So given that, I decided it was time to start pulling my experience together into a guide that will hopefully stop people making some of the mistakes I made during my early Tarkov life, and bridge some of the middle ground between newbie and pro.
