you this game can be incredibly complex and it has some pretty in-depth mechanics and has basically no tutorial at all and it

doesn

't help you with any of that so we're gonna be going over ten

things

I think are super helpful to know I stream

a few days a week on Twitch all my links will be down below we'd love to have you stop by but with all that out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so the first tip is when you repair an armor or anything in the game you can actually repair with multiple different traders so right here we see per pour and that's what most people use but if you click this drop-down you can repair with skier or mechanic skier and mechanic are going to repair that item to a higher overall durability skier will repair better than per pour mechanic will repair better than skier the thing is is there's a pretty significant price difference you know 10 K to 17 K to 25 K now sometimes this can be more significant than other times sometimes you flip through these and you're like man there's the the durability difference is so minimal it's not worth doing at all and sometimes it can be a pretty significant difference and if it's an item that you want to get a lot more value out of like a high value armor or something...

like that it might be worth paying the extra money what's happening here is the material that an armor is made out of will repair some materials repair better some materials repair worse so in this case the ceramic it

doesn

't repair very well anyway so I might not spend the extra money but that is there for you and you can check those price differences tip number two is similarly when you insure an item whether you're ensuring you know before you go into a raid or by right-click and sure this same thing applies you can insure with propor or you can insure with therapists now the benefit is we see here per pour that item is going to come back to you between twenty and twenty nine hours and therapists that item is going to come back to you between ten and twenty hours so you're gonna get that item sooner also the dev team has been messing with when ensuring with therapists it remains in your messenger for a longer period of time so we know that if you insure something with propor and you don't like if you should insured it and you play it on Saturday and then you don't forget to play again until Tuesday and there was something in the insurance that is going to have expired and you're not going to be able to claim that and they've been tinkering around with insuring via therapist you have days to pick that up instead of just like 24 hours that may be subject to change but it's something that the game

doesn

't really

tell

you and it is here...
10 things escape from tarkov doesn t tell you   tarkov beginners guide
if anything it helps you get those items faster if you know you're going to be playing a lot the third tip is how to

tell

if a scab that you killed and are looting in a game is a player scab or a a icecap and the easiest way to do that is with this pouch slot here so if I take this away and we see this pouch slot it just says pouch it has this little image here but it

doesn

't have anything there if you go to loot a scab and underneath the backpack there is this pouch slot that looks exactly like this there is no pouch that was a player scab but if it was an AI scab this won't even be here it'll just say tactical rig pockets and backpack and then the fourth tip is tasks level you fastest I know a lot of new players to the game are wondering how to level up their characters as fast as possible and if we go to the tasks section of propor you can see right at the beginning here Debut only gives me 600 XP but as you start to go further down we see 20,000 xp for completing this task and 19,000 XP 30000 XP 20,000 XP you know pestle II did a lot of research on this and this is absolutely the fastest way to level your character you know unless you're a god at

tarkov

and you can just grind factory or grind labs 24/7 and just kind of grind XP that way the tasks are a great way to get money get rewards unlock items level up your traders and they're absolutely gonna level your character up the fastest number 4 is actually that your guns can jam and

tarkov

so just like there's an armored mechanic that shows you how much durability something has that's also here with your weapons now 38.6 out of 100 is actually the lowest durability I can find in

escape

from

tarkov

right now on the flea market and anything and I'm not good enough to use it on this many raids it definitely would take using a gun for I mean 10 15 20 raids to get something down to you know 10 or 20 durability and even at 38.6 here the gun isn't jamming so I can't show you that animation but if I got this gun down to you know 20 durability or so the gun will start to Jam regularly and you have to clear that and the aim accuracy is crazy off it's just out of control I actually enough previous wife had an encounter where I bought a gun that I needed for quest off the flea market and it was something that somebody had used all the way down to almost no durability and I took that into a raid and found out the hard way that your guns can jam in

escape

from

tarkov

you can repair these just like anything else is using that tip using the different traders but just keep an eye on that and that's just little fun fact tip number six is that you can actually zero the guns and

escape

from

tarkov

so when iAds with this scope you see down in the bottom right hand corner and pops up with a 50 and if I use the page up and page down keys on my keyboard I can zero this weapon for farther distances so if we just kind of like you know zoom in on this...
and I hold alt and you can see as I zero the gun up it's actually changing the sight picture and that is replicating zeroing this gun for farther targets and that's definitely something that takes a little bit of time to get used to but the game

doesn

't really

tell

you that that's the thing the key bind is a weird key bind but if you want to get used to that when your long-range sniping this is gonna help you not have to raise your reticle so high above a target and account for that bullet drop for that it's hit their head you can try zeroing and you'll start to learn you know gauging how many is that 50 meters 150 meters stuff like that as a quick side note to that currently the FOV and

escape

from

tarkov

can gun kind of be a little screwy with zeroing your weapons if you play at max fov which is 75 which is what i play on it can be a little weird but if you want to get used to that if you like that mechanic better I know a lot of people even though it still has to be tinkered with people still rather play that way or if you play at 50 fov all the way down at the bottom then it's gonna be like spot-on for you but that's just something that is there the seventh tip is you can actually fer grenades if you find a grenade so I can bind that to number six by hitting the six key or dragging that down here instead of just throwing the grenade with our if I hit six it's going to pull the grenade out but keep it there and then if I hold left click...
it pulls the pin but he does not release the grenade this is not cooking the grenade but I can be a little bit more accurate if I want to pull the corner and then give a low toss right here I can do that or I can just be a little bit more accurate with where I want to throw that so you can just bind it to any number pull the grenade out and then kind of time it up a little bit better if that's something that you wanted to do number eight is if you are doing a healing animation if you start a heal and you hear somebody pushing you you can actually cancel the healing animations in

escape

from

tarkov

so you do that just by hitting the left-click button so if I start a heal and then as I pull it out I hit left-click he just puts it right way so that's a great way to kind of go back on that decision the healing animations are loud they let the enemy know what you're doing and you can definitely use that it works with the longer

things

like the surgery kit as well you would just start your heal and then immediately just press left click and he's gonna put that away that can be super helpful I've even seen people use that to bait people to push them by starting a heal putting it away and then being ready for that fight but often times it's more so used in a defensive way when you hear somebody coming then maybe that you didn't know was there or somebody that's pushing you because I know you're healing you can put that away and get right back into...
it number nine is that there is a ton of control that you have as a PMC over the speed of your character's movement so I'm actually gonna pull my cam away right now because in the bottom left you can see all that information right there you've got a model of your character you've got the noise meter you've got your stamina bar and then you've got a little meter over there on the left so by scrolling your mouse wheel down you are adjusting how fast you're walking so every single one of those white dots is a different speed that your character can move so as I'm walking if I scroll that down the half way I slow down a little bit if I scroll it down all the way I slow down a lot and you can notice in the far far bottom-left that little speaker icon as I get faster you start to see one little dot next to it and - and that is letting you know how much noise you're making now the same thing can be done with how tall your character is and how much you want to crouch so all of those dots on the left-hand side the vertical bar are all different height stances that you can have so if you hold C and scroll your mouse wheel the same thing all of these tiny intervals that are all the way between a full crouch and standing up so just by pressing C you're gonna go to a full crouch and by person C again you're gonna go all the way up but in this instance if somebody was right here I can actually hold C and go up just a little bit and start engaging...
or up all the way so there is an absolute ton of control that you have over the movement speed there's a ton a little white dots so just C is gonna crouch and then caps-lock if you hold down you can set it to toggle or to hold but if I hold down caps lock it snaps my movement speed all the way down to the lowest so that's a really fast way for me to just hold caps lock and go crowd I'm moving as slow as possible I let go of caps lock and start moving again and I'm going as fast as possible so there's an insane amount of control that you have there number 10 is that there are different ways for you to

tell

which of the potential extractions are open or available to you so for instance this one here on customs the CCP exit this light right up here if that light is on then that this extraction is open so I spawned on this side of the map so I wouldn't have that as a potential extraction but if you spawned over here and you're moving this way and you're not sure if you want to cross you can check that light and then on certain maps there's a green extraction smoke so on woods there's a few different potential extractions that will have green extraction smoke kind of like billowing nearby and now we'll let you know that that potential extract is open and you can take that and if it's not there then you can so that's a great way to just like from a distance kind of you know check out an extract and see if it's worth moving...
over because that's kind of the big thing with those potential extracts is you're always wondering is it worth it for me to go all the way over there and check because I may not have time or I may be you know really hurting or there might be people chasing me and so being able to kind of like run and from a distance check if these extractions are open that can be a huge help so that's really it those are 10
