Escape From Tarkov’s latest update finally added the Lighthouse map, and recent events have been focused on giving players quite a bit of loot through Twitch dops. From December 29 to January 8, Battlestate Games was handing out Twitch drops, ranging from common gear to more impressive drops.
Escape From Tarkov is getting very close to its next wipe, and players are excited to see what’s coming next. Battlestate Games has already released the trailer for patch 0.12.12, and it looks like we can expect the Lighthouse map to be released, along with the SCAR assault rifle, the G28 DMR, and a rangefinder.
As with most other games around Halloween, Escape From Tarkov hosted its very own event during the spookiest night of the year. Players were eligible to receive special drops over the course of the event, including pumpkin helmets and spooky masks. Cultists were also far more common during All Hallows Eve.
Escape From Tarkov’s new event is about to be released and it should change things up a little bit, like prior events. Players are theorizing that the number of players on Shoreline will be increased, with BSG bumping up the max limit so that things will get a little more chaotic.
The most recent hotfix for Escape From Tarkov introduced a few quality of life changes, including the ability to see changes in Fence reputation after a raid. You can also no longer kill scav bosses and their guards if you have more than 6 Fence rep without incurring a huge penalty.
The last update for Escape From Tarkov added a range of things to the game, though the major change was the expansion of the Factory map. The map has a new scav boss, Tagilla, who is Killa’s brother, and the developers have also introduced weapon degradation and misfires, which can be a little frustrating but add to the game’s realism.
Wipe day has finally arrived and Escape From Tarkov has seen some significant changes. This new update has further increased the flea market level to 20 and has introduced new features like weapon malfunctions, based on the quality of the ammo you’re using and the state of your weapon. It has also introduced Tagilla, who is the Factory scav boss.
One of the most recent pieces of news from Battlestate Games is that Escape From Tarkov will soon support Nvidia Reflex, which promises to reduce latency caused by your GPU. This will make it easier to stay on target when you’re fighting an opponent who won’t stop moving around, since your aim will be able to keep up with them easily.
The most recent major update to Escape From Tarkov was released at the end of March, and it added a few features to polish up the game as well as a slew of new equipment. For example, scav bosses like Reshala, Sanitar, and Gluhar have voices, and there’s new clothing available for BEAR, USEC, and Scavs.
Escape from Tarkov or EFT is a hardcore survival, first person looter shooter with RPG aspects. It’s hard to fully describe Tarkov without playing Tarkov, though it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that it is a game with the very real possibility of leaving you with an intimate and profound relationship with dying.
The gunplay in EFT is similar to DayZ and Rust, and both of these other titles also capture this feeling of devastating loss when you die, though EFT somehow feels more foreboding, more ominously serious.
Everything you collect in raid will go into your bank if you can extract from the map within the given window of time, though even if you are fully prepared with some of the best items in the game, it’s entirely possible that some noob player will get a lucky headshot on you and ruin your whole career.
Tarkov plays a bit like a BR, except you don’t start off with no items. You can enter the map as a Scav(enger) or as a Private Military Contractor (PMC). The former will give you random items that you can bank if you successfully extract. The PMC is your main character that has certain stats that increase the more you play him and can also be equipped with any item from your storage.
How you decide to go into battle, either as a minimalist or as a super soldier prepared for anything and everything.
Just be aware that if you die while rocking your most expensive gear, your death means you will lose it all. Even though you can insure certain items, this insurance only works if the item remains unlooted throughout the duration of the entire raid. Anything you cherished and held dear is very likely to disappear upon death
This high risk, high reward thrill is perhaps what gives EFT all of its appeal and the community has perhaps jokingly been divided into two categories:
Rats and Chads. Rats being the players who always incur the least losses by going in with nothing and always trying to come out of a raid with a net gain. Chads being the ones who always go into raids with gear worth over a million rubles.
As mentioned though, Chads don’t always emerge victorious and a clever Rat is perfectly capable of outsmarting a Chad, even though they can never outgun them.
Not everyone has the capacity to be left completely devastated by Rats as a Chad and maintain the willpower to keep playing the game. For those people, EFT hacks exist, and here at PrivateCheatz we are happy to oblige.
There are hackers left, right and centre in Tarkov, especially because the game has a predominantly Russian player base and we all know how much they love to hack. Nikita has taken the necessary steps in recent months to ensure that Battlestate games is equipped with new anti-cheat tools though and has largely been successful.
Instead of relying on 3rd party anti-cheat software, all of the security measures in EFT are developed in-house, allowing for much more powerful tools to enter development. As a result, EFT is a game that we rate very difficult to hack in, though not impossible.
