The game has over 200,000 viewers on Twitch at all hours of the day. It was released back on 27 July 2017, but many gamers have started to realize how enjoyable it is. It is also fun to play, but you need to know some beginner tips and tricks to be able to survive for long and help your team win. Here are some beginner tips that will help you get started:
1. Practice in offline mode
Most of the features in Escape from Tarkov have little to no tutorial. Luckily, you can try all features by playing offline. The best way to learn Escape from Tarkov is to spend time playing the offline mode. The offline mode allows you to explore each map and figure out where to find the best loot. The best thing with practicing offline is that the game does not record anything, and there is no penalty, no matter what you do. To get more skills and expertise, you will have to practice and practice.
2. Find a reliable teammate
Find a teammate who will give you tips and tricks to help you survive. Escape From Tarkov does not forgive any mistake. It is one of the hardest to play for many beginners in hardcore video games. Without having someone to guide you, you will not survive in the game for long. You will die even before the game peaks. Tarkov Team Finder will share with you their expert experiences that will help you get more loot, kill more PMC, master the game, and survive for long.
3. Stick to one map
One of the mistakes many beginner players make when playing Escape From Tarkov is the failure to stick to one map. Many players are bouncing from one map to another. Escape the Tarcov map’s knowledge is a great tool that will help you survive for a long time and loot more. Learn one map’s PMC, loot locations, Scav spawns, extracts, stashes, etc to increase your chances of survival.
4. Do Scav runs
Using Scav runs is one of the best ways you can save money in Escape From Turkov as a beginner. You will also not be risking your gear when doing scav runs as all that you will get from your raid is pure profit. Scav runs will also let you see some of the gear your scav will have in the main menu. When playing as a Scav, you shouldn’t fire at other Scavs, not unless the Scav has a gear that you may want to pick.
5. Complete the quests
Every Turkov quest has a unique objective. The mission may be to kill another player or pick up some items for trading. The more quests you complete, the more you progress to higher levels. Every level has a new mission, and the higher the level, the more fun to play it is.
6. Use insurance
Many beginners think that ETfs insurance is for rich players only. That is not the case. It is beneficial for every new player in many ways. Insurance is cheap, and having it will give you a chance to get back your gear if you die. The insurance costs 10k rubles only. If you are not using insurance, you will lose all your loot when you die, and you will have to start as a new player. Insurance is a win-win as you are spending to protect your valuable gears that aren’t worth losing.
If you kill someone with a great gear when playing PMC and your gear is insured, you can use theirs by dropping yours where no one will see it. Wearing the gear of a person you have killed will help you gain a new loot and keep your insured items safe.
7. Get a Keytool
Your first long term goal as a new player when playing Escape From Tarkov. A Keytool takes one space and can hold up to 16 keys. Keytool allows you to keep consumable and medical items into your pockets to make it easy to use them. It will help you save your life as you will not have to waste a lot of time opening up your menu to be able to use med-kits, bandages, and other items that you may need to save your life. Keytool is a rare lootable container, you should think of saving up to 600k rubles to get yourself this life-saving container. After getting a Keytool, make sure to bind meds to it.
