  1. Timestamps are in the description! I might do a compressed version of this as quick as possible as well. Also, check me out on Twitch sometime and feel free to ask any questions! Good luck out there!

  2. Thank you for this. I just recently got tarkov and played a couple scav runs and one pmc run to try to out. My friends who talked me into getting it pretty much told me that I'll figure it out as I play. Which Im sure is true but some basics are always helpful haha. Thank you

  3. I think skier's theme is supposed to be like competition guns and like expensive precission rifles stuff that isn't really used by militaryies like the DVL or the MK47 (which IRL is semi auto only since it's a civ gun cause the need for such an expensive mix platform is questionable). Meanwhile Jäger is like hunting stuff, shotguns, bolt actions, civilian guns like the VPO 209 (which counts as a shotgun in russia cause it's smoothbore). What should be kept in mind is that each trader pays different prices for stuff.

  4. I see people playing the game but when i went on theyre website they say that i can preorder the beta, does that mean that i cant play until then (i didnt check the date) because i dont get why some random ppl already get to play it.
