armor and a few things to know that just might be

I stream

this

game a few days a week on Twitch all my links will be down below we would absolutely love to have you stop by say hey ask questions or even just hang out for a little bit but with all that stuff out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so I wanted to start up a discussion around

ammo

and

escape

from

tarkov

and kind of where we are with the game right now and talk about a few things that could be

more

important

to focus on than just buying the absolute best

ammo

out there and those things are map knowledge positioning and good aim but before we talk about those things I want to talk about where we are with

escape

from

tarkov

a really interesting thing is happening right now and that is as bounce at games has launched a flea market and the player made economy they've changed a few things to the game now as a caveat I am NOT here to say that with the way that they have been doing the flea market and the economy and that stuff is good or bad that I could make it better or worse that I have solutions or don't yeah I'm just really talking about like where we are right now and some practices that I think are

more

important

to focus on than just the

ammo

and just the economy as it stands but as they've...
is this more important than ammo   escape from tarkov beginners guide
added those things they have added some limits to how much

ammo

you can buy so the things in the trader have a global limit which means that a trader only has in stock X amount of a certain item and what they've added is player caps so that each player can only purchase a certain amount of some of these top tier items and

ammo

being one of them so what's happening is right after a reset you've got as many people as possible buying their share of that

ammo

immediately and mere seconds after a trader resets certain

ammo

s like m99 five are sold out immediately and then resold on the flea market for double or triple their value I mean I remember when Labs was first introduced and 545 in goal Nick was just put into the game I remember seeing that on the flea market for 700 rubles around and thinking that was in it was by far the most expensive round in the game and now you've got ahem nine nine five you know ten seconds after a reset going up for 1500 rules around it's a little bit crazy and when you mix that with the fact that for years now and

escape

from

tarkov

the advice the top top top tier advice has been used the best

ammo

use the best

ammo

for new players for players wanting to get better it's the advice has always just been used the best

ammo

and I really think it's

important

that what I'm trying to say here is not that that advice is bad I actually think that that's great advice I think whenever possible you should always be using the...
is this more important than ammo   escape from tarkov beginners guide
best

ammo

available to you but you have to consider the the finances of that in

escape

from

tarkov

if you can't afford to run 90 rounds or 120 rounds of m95 every single raid then you need to start thinking about what else you can do and I think that's where the kind of rub is in tar Cove right now is because of all the years of being told and I've told every single person that stops on my stream or that I tell about

escape

from

tarkov

I say that same thing use the best

ammo

use the best

ammo

but now that the player driven economy is kind of in full swing and bouncing games is messing with some stuff those things might not be viable to purchase you just might not be able to afford it or even you can consider is that even worth running that and all of my mags long-term because what if I'm killing hatchlings or scavs or level 20s with level 3 armor that's a lot of money and because of all the years of us giving that advice I feel like there's a lot of players out there that think if I'm not running the best

ammo

well it's not even worth it why even run

ammo

at all I'll just do a hatch and run or something like that and so I wanted to talk a little bit about that we're in a weird spot as the caveat to that there have also made armor a little bit

more

expensive and harder to come by so a lot of class-five armors like gen floors aren't purchasable any

more

the ones that are purchasable are very expensive and they often don't repair...
is this more important than ammo   escape from tarkov beginners guide
very well so they're a little bit harder to come by you've got a little bit less players running that armor which makes second or third tier

ammo

s even

more

viable but let's even set that aside and say everybody's running gen4 I did some numbers in the battle buddy app Kevin used the battle buddy app it was made by Veritas and a few other content creators it's an incredible resource if you like

escape

from

tarkov

and you've been playing it a lot it's an amazing app for a ton of resources that's available on iOS and Android one of the things you can do is kind of calculate how good an

ammo

is versus a specific armor so using the generally recognized meta armor in the game Jen for assault m855a1 which is a five five six round I made five six a one which is a five five six round and BT which is like the third best five four five round all of these are significantly cheaper than their meta counterparts they're much

more

available and they will all shred that gen4 down to between one and four durability in eight shots or less which means if you're in full auto and you mag dump you can miss

more

than two out of every three shots and still bring that Jennifer all the way down to basically nothing and you're doing damage to them a lot of damage to them at that point if they're not dead already the most common face shield in the game the most common meta face shield is the class three face shield that connects to the fast MT or the air...
frame all three of those rounds have well have over a 96% chance to penetrate that face shield on the first shot and if it pens they're dead because all these rounds do

more

than 35 damage so I say that to just say and put into perspective how viable some of these second and third-tier

ammo

czars of some of these major calibers in the game against

this

meta armor and that kind of shifts me back to what we were talking about earlier with map knowledge positioning and good aim so if you've been around my channel or my stream you know that I'm always focused on what I can do to get better at

escape

from

tarkov

and if that's what you want to do is get better at

this

game then focusing on the fact that m95 is 1,500 or round right now isn't going to change anything like that we can't change that right now I'm sure seit will balance that and if you kill a guy and he's got maxvill m95 you can absolutely run that and it's gonna be the best

ammo

in the game but what I can do is I can focus on strategies and things in the game that I can learn that can make me a better player so if I know that I only need to land seven shots to center of mass or one to two shots to the face then I can say okay well how can I position myself so that I know that I'm getting first shots on an enemy how can I position myself so I have

more

information than they do about where they are and where the map how the map flows and how I can flank them and how can I practice...
using offline mode my aim and accuracy so that I can consistently and land those headshots so I know that that kind of sounds like a cop-out right it's just like we'll just play the game

more

and you'll get better but once again I am always focusing on what I can do better what I can learn how can I outmaneuver people and if you want

more

proof I can't recommend highly enough deadly slobs stream and YouTube channel I've been watching him in these past few weeks he has been doing a ton of low-budget stuff I saw him spawn into a raid with an aka with no attachments and PP

ammo

which is like some of the absolute worst

ammo

in the game and he dropped a fully juice guy and took his like meta em for Gen 4 and his helmet he's done shotgun runs he's done all sorts of stuff nine-millimeter runs which a lot of people like to give nine-millimeter crap and say it's not viable in game and he has used his skills in the game his knowledge of the game to be able to outmaneuver an outflank and out aim his opponents and get some insanely top-tier loot as a reward for that if you don't follow deadly slow I highly recommend doing that but you can see that in action you know the viability of a weapon is really hard to quantify because it's not just you know us just standing face to face shooting at each other and nobody's moving there's so much

more

to that

this

doesn't call a duty where you know every engagement is starts and ends within two...
seconds a lot of times you begin an engagement with somebody and that engagement takes time you both back off maybe you're both trying to heal maybe you're both trying to flank maybe there's two or three of them and only one of you but focusing on learning the maps really well learning how to flank and how to maneuver during an engagement and practicing your aim those are things that you can actually grab a hold of practice get better at and then utilize some of these second or third-tier

ammo

s which are honestly pretty phenomenal anyway and you'll start to shred through your enemies so once again in conclusion

this

isn't to replace the advice of use the best

ammo

possible

this

is hopefully some encouragement and some things that you can grab on to that go in conjunction with that that's say okay hey I don't feel like spending a hundred thousand rubles on 60 rounds or 90 rounds of m95 you know I'm trying to make money not spend money I can use these and I can still be efficient at the game I can still be effective and to be honest with you that's just my opinion I think that's what battle state games is trying to do with the changes that they're making I think they're trying to push people into different armors different

ammo

s and kind of balance out the game a little bit once again I'm not here to say if they're doing a good job or a bad job what they're doing is right or wrong but I think that's what...
they're trying to do and I think it's

important

to know especially if you're relatively new to the game and you're frustrated because you feel like you can't ever get ahead and make money that learning that always grabbing a hold of principles and things that you can actually get better at things that you can actually kind of track your growth at grabbing a hold of that focusing on that is always gonna end up making you a better player and making you drop

more

enemies so thank y'all so much for taking the time to check out

video I hope that

this
