Sigh. Can’t stop playing Tarkov. I hope no one thinks I’m paid to post it. This game is a buggy mess that doesn’t care about the player, and I do not recommend it (at least not without a super long list of caveats). When it works however it’s almost like a multiplayer immersive sim. Sometimes. Or everyone on the map are just running the meta stuff and deathmatch in the usual high loot locations, then leave after 5 minutes. Eh. I don’t do that. I crawl and I hide and I snipe and I die as much as I survive.
Anyway here are some pictures. Quality is very hit and miss. Just like this game. If the picture is grainy this means my character is on painkillers (people used to pop painkillers all the time, pre fight or just in case but then pills got nerfed).
Played in a duo. Guy in a fur hat is my team mate. Went as good as expected.We traded.
Take a good look. This is how ‘meta chad’ looks like. Nothing budget about this kit. Though to be fair I brought a really good AKM myself but I usually don’t spend a million on armor like this guy did.
he hit me once and it penetrated of course. M995 pen just about anything but it takes at least two-tree shots in the chest.
Enemy duo pushed me in dorms. Kileld first one, second one got me. I think there is a third pmc on the floor. No idea if they were all together or different groups. Dorms are hectic. RYS-T face shield doesn’t help against Igolnik/BS. Though I once got shot in the head with 5.56 m995 through Altyn helmet and my head survived on 1hp.
Nice akm. by the way those huge super-expensive backpacks serve a double role. First is obvious you put stuff in it. Second it makes aiming for the head harder. It was actually dark in the room I think it’s bright because of a muzzle flash.
We got completely destroyed by these two. One had a 338 lapua sniper rifle (I know that because I got shot with it). At least I killed the boss to compelte a quest (he is lying left side).
We traded again. Dude flying backwards is the enemy, my teammate (behind tires) shot him but grenade finished him off. Then I shot the other guy through a super narrow gap and somehow even limped out of the raid.
Parkoured this one to death. Jumped on him from a bunk bed (can be seen on a previous picture, same room different raid) thats why my legs got destroyed but nothing else, my feet were at usual head level.
Normal day at the dorms. Two pmcs just chilling in shower. Grenades failed to flush em out. I pushed them and got absolutely lit up.
For once we cleaned up dorms 2v2… but of course they were low level. Budget armor, mp5sd with flesh damage rounds (useless against armor which means you gotta spray and pray for the legs or for the face if its unprotected, people use faceshilds often in dorms, there are tradeoffs and face shield won’t stop a good bullet)
Second one. only watching it for the screenshots I noticed the Mosin on the ground. Missed it at a time.
We both got clapped by a sniper on Customs bridge. Spawn points are still stupid on Customs.
Then I at least returned the favor (against someone else of course). Yay, third 100m shot on Shoreline. Sixth this wipe on this map. I’m not going for it on purpose, had to kill some bots with an AKM for a quest and figured I’d do it from long range. This pmc just got in the way. Thats why I don’t bring shades on bigger maps. Too visible.
Here is the body. Always loot the safe (you can see it at the left) while prone!
I ambushed two German streamers behind new building on customs, they had good loot and like three viewers. Team mate in view left side. Other body in the bushes. I heard them and when they got closer sprayed and prayed. For once it worked, I watched thre stream later and it really looked super unlucky for them.
Barely survived a ‘heroic’ 1v2.
First guy. Lit him up but got shot myself and retreated while trying to patch myself up. AP-20 slugs hurt.
Second guy pushed me, he had KRISS Vector and level 5th armor. Somehow I wildly sprayed him in the face.
First guy got destroyed through the bush, I didn’t even know he was dead this whole time, I hoped of course.
Kriss vector guy.
