BEGINNERS GUIDE PART 2: MAKING MONEY - ESCAPE FROM TARKOV TIPS

BEGINNERS GUIDE PART 2: MAKING MONEY - ESCAPE FROM TARKOV TIPS
hey y'all Moses here welcome back to the first 48 hours of

tarkov

if you haven't watched the first video in this series I do recommend you go back and watch it but today we're talking about the next steps I told you that after the first 12 hours you were in for another 12 hours of pain and I think if you've stuck with it this long you've probably begun to understand exactly what that means so in today's video we're gonna be taking a look a little bit forward hopefully you're by now your level 5 so if you're not level 5 yet keyboar can keep trying those tasks we're gonna be focusing on

making

money

and using your scav runs and a couple other things today that I think will be very helpful in your young and

tarkov

life one other thing before we get started liking the video and commenting really does help I'm new to

making

Targa of content and YouTube is algorithm kind of wants to see some buy-in from the audience so if you do like the video or the video series just please leave a like it does help the channel a lot and be sure to check out the antlion audio link in the description if you want to show some love of the sponsors as well they make great products you've already heard me talking about it but today we're talking about

making

money

not spending

money

let's get started okay so today we're focusing on funding your PMC which is kind of the biggest source of anxiety that a lot of players have is just this number...
beginners guide part 2 making money   escape from tarkov tips
up here you know how much

money

you've got in the bank how much gear can you afford you know how are you gonna keep going that's always the fear at least if it was for me is you going broke is like oh my god I can't afford anything so buying stuff you're gonna be thrifty you're gonna be using a lot of different kinds of cheap guns cheap gear and you're probably gonna be dying because of that cheap gun cheap gear situation so that's okay but how do you get to here now you guys probably looking like Oh 11 million that's crazy well it is kind of crazy I've been very fortunate very lucky but it all comes because of learning and how I started

making

money

at the very beginning was using my scav runs properly now for those of you don't understand exactly how scabs work the difference is again you have your scab character which is random gear you have to wait 20 minutes to use it on off cooldown so use your scab one if you die right away you gotta wait 20 minutes before you can go again your PMC you can play as often as you want but you have to heal your character after you die and re-gear and all that kind of stuff so scav runs are very important to use and very important to maximize early on now a lot of people will tell you you know scav runs you go interchange go reserve shoreline all the

money

-

making

maps but the thing is that right now interchange them is a mess it's not a bad place to do your scav run but as a new player...
beginners guide part 2 making money   escape from tarkov tips
consistently getting out of interchange is gonna be a little bit difficult unless you practice and do a lot of research and because you're spending so much time on customs I would recommend doing your scav run here and doing the cash run that I used to do it's a little bit less lucrative than it was at the when I started playing because it was earlier on in the wipe and stuff that you find in caches what was a little bit more expensive but you can still find a lot of good stuff in there so you're probably wondering what the hell is a cash run I'm gonna walk you through that really fast pest Lee is made some content on this already I'm gonna put a map up on screen while I'm editing to show you the cache map and I'll put a link to that map in the description because I use this on almost all my Gavin's that helped me learn customs basically inside and out because you're gonna be moving all around the map and learning the extracts and that kind of stuff so it really does have some synergy with where you're at likely as a player right now so I'm gonna jump into offline mode I'm gonna give you a brief overview of the caches and how you can use them on your scav runs to make a little bit of

money

so let's jump into that ok welcome back to customs I'm sure you're getting probably a little bit tired of seeing this place by now but we are here and we are going to do a quick overview of the cache run I've basically set my...
beginners guide part 2 making money   escape from tarkov tips
character up in like kind of scav fashion I don't have a vest on but I do have a scav backpack and a pistol and whatever anyway you're gonna be what you're gonna be dealing with thus cavalo doubts as as they come you might not get a backpack at all you might only have a duffel or even a sling bag it really does depend on on obviously the RNG factors but just as a heads up when it comes to the cache run you're likely not gonna be spawning on this side you'll probably be spawning on the on the on the main side of customs this is typically where most players spawn but this has a brief overview just try and maximize your scav runs and if it feels like you're maybe trying to force yourself into a location where there might be a cache or loot that you want it is better to get out as a scab and then vendor all of your all of your items than it is to die because at least you're gonna get something out of that so I'm gonna fast forward for a little bit as we jump across and then we'll talk about the actual route that I like to take on this map ok so this is like the the main choke point area this little channel between the customs warehouse side and then the main side is I like to call it dorms is that direction the the primary warehouse does everything is in here and this is the Chandler's there's two caches here well we're gonna check first these ones are right next to each other and uncustomed because the map is so linear you're...
gonna find that this little route at least if you start on this side of the map or if you spawn up there as a scab you can kind of run down here just use the channel as your reference point so here's your first cache it's these little guys here they can this is one of the easier ones to spot and these things can spawn basically anything in the game so high-value loot meds it can spawn barter items like this so what you want to be doing is just in unless you know what the values are just vacuum up as much as you can because everything does have a value so if you're just getting used to the whole situation the other cash is just right across from it in this bush right here can be a little harder to spot these ones but again like this stuff when I started playing was worth like a hundred K so funny this was good these are 20k you're just trying to maximize the amount of stuff you get out of these runs even if you don't know the value you'll learn the value as you do this and that's kind of the best way to learn because there's just so many items in

tarkov

that knowing the value only comes with with experience so let's keep running and I'll show you the next one one thing to be mindful on customs as well is that this is a very high traffic area people don't like to go on the bridge or they'll go on the junk bridge or wherever but typically there's gonna be a lot of traffic people coming from the other side of the map to it...
extract over here will come this way so when you're crossing here just try and make it nice and fast and try to avoid getting caught in this area something that's kind of difficult to get over when you're playing this game is just like how fast you should be moving as a scav you should be treating it as like nothing ventured nothing gained don't put too much stock into into your scav runs success or failure because sometimes you're just gonna get popped and there's nothing you can really do about it you're going against people with better gear killing players as a scav even low-level players can be somewhat difficult unless you get a good scab Lloyd out or the drop on a player so really this cavern is all about just getting what you can and getting out don't worry about PvP unless you really want to and in which case go bananas you can definitely try and try and make PvP a point of your scab as well because again there's just no there's no downside to playing as a scab nothing nothing Bad's gonna happen if you die so the next cache is just actually in here this is a very high traffic cache this one gets looted all the time because this is just the ones that everybody knows about so again let's pop this guy open see what's inside and a blood set okay so you get a little bit of cash just as a reference this USBA I mean you can take it it's definitely better than nothing you want to maximize your slots don't try try to...
leave as few empty slots on your account on your on your

money

runs as possible even if it's not the most valuable item in the world anything is better than nothing so I just keep that in mind so the next cash is just along the the bus terminal wall this is a relatively safe one but is it again a relatively high traffic area do you hit the corner of the bus terminal you just look this way run over it's right here so these caches are relatively easy to find SMB ammo is good that's a high level sniper again you're just vacuum we have everything you can I'm just leave some stuff behind but we're gonna keep running now there's a there's another cache just up here but again we're just be careful when you're coming around here because people like to transit through this spot so just when you're coming through just make sure you're checking the wall make sure there's no one chilling because again you're getting into a pretty big busy

part

of the map so again you come from where we just were you can see the edge of the bus terminal just through the trees you come through the wall and it's just right here this one kind of sucks this is the best best five four five amyl you can get so definitely pick that up and then move on so at this point you're at the gas station and this is where I would typically go the other direction you can actually just jump along this wall and this is kind of the confusing

part

of customs I...
still get twisted up around here sometimes just run back the other way use that radio tower as kind of a reference point and it's trying to run towards where the edge of the wall here is because there's more caches along the wall and at the base of this power I don't know if I'll be able to hit every single one in this video I'm just trying to make this as as linear as possible as far as running around is concerned but from from that area you kind of run up you can hit this one here as well you're likely gonna be full on loot if you if you're just vacuuming everything so again as a reference for the power lines here it's just right up against the wall it can be a little hard to get but it's right here meds always good MREs always good and a57 that's a great find I can't I can't take it but this is the kind of stuff it's ones literally everything so I'm already full in this case I would probably toss whatever pistol I had or if I had a pistol at all but this fight these five sevens are the best pistols in the game in my opinion alright so from there and you also want to keep no to your extract I have pmc extract so it's gonna be a little bit different but just make note of your extracts reference the map the cache map has extracts actually labeled on there as well but just just keep note of where you have to go and kind of plan your route accordingly or hit your dashes accordingly so you come down past the trains and...
then these ones are a little bit harder to find especially as a new player because they're in bushes and whatnot but I'll do my best to show you okay so just one more thing there is another cache out there somewhere I think it's closer to the middle of the map I typically don't loot that one because it's not on the route and it's not on the edge of the map and wandering around in the middle of customs is a good way to get shot so this is this one by the way a little harder to see but it's it's again looking at the train yard and this fence you'll have this this little guy right here it's in this bush you'll be able to spot it as long as it's not too dark or if you're not too twisted but this area the map all kind of looks the same but that one is one of the harder ones to spot sometimes okay so this is the this is one of the extracts that you can use as a scav but there's another cache right here as well it's next to the dumpster finding raid 2 shankha always good don't don't sell these guys these guys you're gonna need for a quest so just keep that in mind screws you're gonna use that for your hideout so again just looking at this dumpster very this one is one of the easier ones the wine so I'm not gonna talk too much about it and then we're off to the next one alright as we get to this point something to note is that this is another high-traffic area you have the the sniper scammed likes to...
hang out out there you have the hole in the wall that players will transition through a lot so this is an area of the map where you're getting it into a lot of altercations if you're not careful so be quick through here there are no caches just I point that out and we're kind of getting to the end of what the of the route that I traditionally used so there's one cash to keep note of this one's kind of exposed so I'll fill you my little trick is as soon as you start searching this thing you have about just a couple of seconds of a window to do other stuff so you hit Search Search and then prone right the last second that makes you a little bit less of a target and this one I found a take a look at that so I found a gun as well so this is oh we got one more cache to check before we call it a day but we're feeling good now we got a new gun and then we got one more cache to check which is just right over here and it's gonna be super convenient for this video as well and right here another big fattie we got a some meds which is always good always take meds those things are always gonna be valuable MREs these things are actually worth a lot on the flea market t food and meds are you just can't go wrong and barter items like this we're gonna leave this stuff behind but this is like not the most amazing cash run I've ever had you know sometimes you'll find stuff like fuel conditioner high-level barter items like pressure gauges and...
thermostats and all sorts of different stuff but this is kind of as as close to I think that a realistic scav run would look like save for the gamma container you'll probably have a tactical rig and probably a different backpack but you're not gonna be able to always get awesome stuff but as you learn values you'll be able to kind of pick and choose I like for instance I would have taken that other MRE instead of this toilet paper in the measuring tape you know again just just keep in mind that you're they're not all gonna be gems but this cash run if you do it consistently will make you some

money

and will help you learn customs basically inside now which will be very helpful especially as that brand new like level 5 ish player but yeah that's the cash run again just just try it practice it you'll get to know the map you'll get a little bit of cash in the bank as well as you'll be able to

escape

with whatever scav stuff you have on as well so you can either use it or vendor it afterwards so that'll be that'll be really helpful so let's let's move on ok so you've made your cash run you've got your skavlan now is the the biggest question is how do I sell stuff how does this whole market thing work what goes to the vendor what goes to the flea market and I'm gonna show you a couple of examples and a brief overview of the flea market which you will only get access to once you hit level 5 so the level 1 to 5 is is a...
grindin again I hope you've made it through that without too much too much heartbreak so in your trading menu you're gonna have immediately a vision of all of your traders and then you'll have the flea market tab up here don't worry auctions just doesn't exist yet it's not available in the beta so that's that so basically what you want to do is at least at first is hit this ad off your screen you can only have any three total offers up at any given time you will unlock more I think once you hit the ten trader rating you hit you get another slot so let's just take a look here at an item you'd probably find in a cache let's say let's say this soap here so once you have this ad off or screen up this is what I like to do first hit back here move this window remove barter items or barter offers rather than all that'll clear this up and show you the prices so what you want to do is you want to right-click and filter by the item all right and you can see here that soap is going for around 12 K it's used in some some hideout stuff so it typically you'll get fairly good value out of it but just one thing to note is 12 K right here is the flea market current value that doesn't mean that the traders will give you a less of a good deal so potentially therapists could give us who typically pays the most for items a good deal and you can see here that the therapist will pay us 2900 rubles for the same soap so that goes on the flea...
market one other thing to note this Bitcoin which you can find in both maps I'm not sure if you can find them in caches but you will come across them eventually this is essentially just a straight-up currency conversion Bitcoin into into rubles or whatever therapist does give you the most amount of

money

for it so just keep that in mind you can see here that she's selling hers for 123 K if we do the same thing we can see here that the lowest price on the flea market is 119 so I'm gonna go ahead just buy one right there oh I see someone already bought it let's see that was lucky I wanted to I would have taken that back to therapists to sold it to her so make sure that you're checking the traders specifically therapists for the values of items before you sell on the flea market because they might be selling below market value these are new players they don't know you can tell by their trader ratings that they're actually giving up

money

by by buying them below below trader value and there will be people watching this type of stuff snapping it up so don't be these guys so you so so again just go through the traders I think they're I think the the mantra that I heard about traders is like therapists ski or mechanic's Ragman whatever but these guys all buy different stuff like Ragman I don't think we'll buy weapon attachments but skier will buy weapon attachments and he'll give you a good price for that so there is some some...
small extra margin of value by say disassembling a gun in your inventory and selling it for scraps so you can just pick whatever gun a Mosin and for whatever an aku can find it if you disassemble so if you right-click it disassemble it'll strip it all off all the

part

s will come off you can sell them all to skier and then sell the remnants to mechanic afterwards to get a little bit more

money

but it's so marginal and over time you're just not gonna have the patience you'll just wind up selling it all to one person or the other unless you're like super keen on on maximizing all your value so just make sure that you're checking the trader prices as well as the flea market and

making

sure that you're getting the best deal possible because one other thing to note is when you do list stuff on the flea market and let's say we want to sell this paracord pair of cords go for like a hundred and sixty K I think or 175 if I put this up for a hundred and seventy-five thousand I'm paying a fifteen thousand ruble tax you do not get taxed when you when you sell to the traders so keep this math in mind this

part

of the game is like its own entity like there's there's escaping from

tarkov

shooting and killing all that stuff the inventory screen and the market is a separate game you could actually just play the market if you wanted to and finding the values and and what goes through what is is very very realistic to a real economy because it is...
player driven so for example right now the let X is something you're gonna need for your hideout is a very expensive item they were in a drop on Twitch not long ago and because of that the prices have dropped he's things used to be 1.7 million now they're down to 1.1 couple weeks from now they're gonna be back up again I promise you that so just playing the market and understanding values is its own entity it's gonna take a lot of time to know what's worth it especially when comes to specialty items barter items that are always changing in cost but this is how you're gonna make your

money

so you're gonna need to basically set aside some time to to to learn the market value of items as well as how the market works itself and keeping your inventory tidy is gonna be difficult one last note this is gonna be hard to swallow for some of you guys but one thing you have to work towards as a new player is getting this lucky scab junk box this is a massive container and all those junk items you're pulling out of cash cash is rather all through the map go in here okay so the the soap goes in here these little balls basically anything that's not a gun ammo or or its own category goes in here and this will help you clean up your inventory because I imagine if you're doing all these cash runs you're gonna have crap everywhere so therapist level 2 sells the lucky scavenge on fox and it's very hard to swallow believe me I was there I was...
there not long ago for 1.4 million roubles okay so you're gonna need to save all your pennies up don't bankrupt yourself trying to buy it but once you have like two or three million in the bank that's the time to buy this gap junk box because you're still gonna be grind and doing your scavenge doing your low budget runs for your PMC and having this junk box will make your life just so much easier so just keep that in mind it's gonna be rough to buy that thing but it makes your life a lot easier so that's kind of the brief overview of

making

money

this is gonna be I hope I hope a shorter video than the last one was the next video is gonna be just purely

tips

and tricks about just the game in general there is something else to be said right now that I think is pertinent information for this video which is using your scav run on interchange interchange has a lot of players trying to kill a boss mob right now so there's a lot of dead players in in the map but there's also a lot of competition for that before that loot so you can go on interchange and find a dead player and make way more

money

than you would on a cash run but you could also die very frequently interchange is good map to learn I'm not gonna show you what that looks like because it's basically spawning as it as a scav and walking around looking for corpses that might have good stuff on them and then checking the other stores interchange is very complex I recommend you check...
out pestle ease

guide

on interchange where to find the good loot there but if you're not running customs looking for caches interchange is probably your next best option but good luck it's really rough out there right now mice caverns on interchange you're not going very well these days but yeah that's kind of it I wanted to kind of give you guys the the cache run and

making

money

hopefully by the next time we interact you're probably around level 9 level 10 and we're gonna talk about budget kits how to kill players and the good stuff this is where things start to come a little bit off the training wheels and and more into the real world so thank you guys for watching just as a reminder I do stream every day on twitch at twitch.tv slash WTF Moses and then we carry that over to Facebook where I also stream at facebook.com / WTF Moses again thank you for watching guys don't forget to leave a like if you did enjoy the video there will be more to come subscribe for that and until next time I'll see you out there you
