Labs Map Guide! - Ultimate Escape From Tarkov Beginners Guide!
what's up guys I'm Jesse Kazaam and welcome back to another

from

beginner's

guide

in this video we're gonna be doing an overview of the terror group

labs

map in

escape

from

tarkov

this is personally one of my favorite maps of the game but it can definitely be pretty overwhelming and pretty complicated but once you get used to it and the hang of some of the mechanics it can be a ton of fun if you're new to the channel I make

s and I also stream

from

tarkov

on Twitch and all my links will be down below but with all that out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so this is the only map that's locked behind a paywall and that means you actually have to pay to get an access key card a single-use access key card that grants you access to share group

labs

that is purchased that therapist level for the current price is one hundred and eighty nine thousand rubles you can only buy one every reset which means one every three hours you can't purchase them on the flea market sometimes for a little bit less than what therapist sells it for most of the time a little bit more the price of those key cards change all the time at the beginning of point twelve they were three hundred thousand as the as the devs continue to balance that map I'm sure that that mechanic and that price will change but just note you do need an access key card to get into laps it has to be on your person and it's a single-use it...

consumes it a really important side note you can play

labs

offline you do need a key card but it will not consume it so if you just want to play an offline to learn the map you can buy one key card and just reuse that thing over and over again until you're confident enough to go into a raid which is good because I would highly suggest playing this map offline another thing that differentiates this from other maps is that this map is populated entirely by scav Raiders and scab Raiders are juiced up scabs in the Lord they are XP mcs that have abandoned their posts or whatever but they are really dangerous they can have a really high tier loot let me look at these like really top to your weapons some really top to your armor really top to your ammo they have much better pathing they are much more accurate they can be much more aggressive so these guys are really amped up scabs so this definitely adds a huge challenge I mean I've gotten one tapped just from the scab Raiders a million times on

labs

now so in addition to PvP the PvE can be really intense but it adds that extra reward factor so you can get in and come out of

labs

with a ton of high tier loot attachments ammo armor all sorts of stuff like that so it can be very profitable to run

labs

but it is also very risky so I just wanted to go over those things before we dive in and look at a map how you get in and what you're going to be looking at once you get in so on the wiki there's a terror group

labs

page...
labs map guide   ultimate escape from tarkov beginners guide
I'm gonna link it down below which has all these maps that the

labs

is broken up into three levels basically so it's not a very wide map but it has a ton of verticality so there's like this basement area with a lot of tunnels the first floor and then the second floor which a lot of it it looks over down into the first floor and then it has some rooms as well once again this

guide

is not meant to be incredibly in-depth okay the point of this is to give you some points of reference that are gonna help but you're gonna have to familiarize yourself with this map Terra coupe

labs

used to be free so a lot of us that played back one then we were able to just run it rinse repeat over and over the the risk was a little bit less at that point so I would highly suggest going in offline because it costs to even get into

labs

and learning this stuff but if we start on the first floor the main level you can kind of see basically you can kind of cut

labs

in half horizontally here and see these two main sections the main point of interest of this top section is going to be the parking parking gate extraction so there's this parking lot here there's a ton of car cars in it there's an extraction right here we're gonna talk about the extractions in a little bit but this is would be the main point of interest all these other things are like like recreation more lifestyle there's a gym reception some bunks you know desks and stuff like that here on the first...
labs map guide   ultimate escape from tarkov beginners guide
floor but I would suggest kind of if you're on this side of the map always know where you are in reference to the parking garage and then on this bottom half the main point of interest is going to be the warehouse extraction so these are the two kind of like main extractions from

labs

so this is gonna be your point of interest down here this side is much more like work-related there's a lot more computers and there's tents and there's medical stuff and there's server rooms back here and stuff like that once again it's way too much to get into but on this side of the map know where you are in reference to that so that would be like my first big tip is like run through them and always try to know where you are in reference to these points of interest because especially when you're here in this middle area it can get very dangerous because people can be looking up at you from the top there can be Raiders everywhere and if you're trying to navigate in a sticky situation you want to know where you are in reference to these two areas the top floor basically just like like in this whole middle area is really just like looking down there's a manager's office on the second floor over top here and like a conference room but the parking lot there's not a second floor the warehouse there's just a platform here there's a few medical offices that are on the second floor but most of it is kind of looking down but there's tons of...
staircases on all sorts of verticality and ways to get up and down from the first and second floor the basement level there's this is once again an ideal place to be running a ton of offline raids because it can be extremely confusing after hundreds and hundreds of

labs

raids I still often get confused as to where I am in the basement there's a lot of tunnels that don't get used very often a few extractions that don't get used very often but once again it's a great place to start is figure out where you are down here in reference to the those points of interest I would definitely suggest learning downstairs because there are so many ways to get down into the basement and then get back up into the main floors and being able to use the verticality to your advantage in a fight can be huge I've seen countless ridiculously amazing flanks get pulled in PvP and in PvE when you are stuck somewhere and you know you can drop down to the basement you know run across the map and then pop right up behind your enemy so it's valuable to know this but it's a little complicated to learn so those are the the points of interest and kind of how the map flows I do want to talk about the extraction so with the terror group

labs

map this is where they kind of initiated these dynamic extraction points we see a few of these on reserve and I'm sure that they'll continue to add these in other maps but every single extraction in

labs

require something there's...
nowhere you can just go stand and get out immediately everything requires some sort of thing to happen you have to be wearing a certain thing you have to flip a switch you have to power an elevator there's something that goes on so I want to break down each of these extractions just so you're aware definitely tinker with in an offline once again the two main ones are gonna be the parking and the warehouse exfil the parking is this the way you extract is you flip a switch that's going to be on the second floor the second floor right here there's a tiny little office you open the door and there's a switch on the command center there you flip that and it's actually gonna open the big parking garage in the back there and you can't get out another huge thing to note is that triggering the extractions calls the Raiders so when you spawn into a map it's just gonna be PMC's after a few minutes some scabs are gonna spawn in these Raiders but triggering the extractions is the main source of like calling them so when you hit that button and this garage door opens almost every single time a group of Raiders is gonna run out from that parking garage and then oftentimes they're gonna start spawning in other places too so these main extractions are ones that you call and you're going to get into a PvE fight it's not as simple as flipping the button and then running out it's gonna call these Raiders the warehouse extraction is very similar...
on the second floor there is like a platform like a metal platform that overlooks this giant warehouse and in this little kind of administrative office there there's a button you click that button this garage door opens right here a bunch of Raiders are gonna come out you're gonna have to fight your way out and you just run to the back of the parking and the warehouse exfil to extract once you're done fighting and looting up the other thing to note about these two extractions specifically is currently these extractions used to be farmed pretty heavily you'd spawn in you hit the button you call the Raiders you get all their loot and then you get out and it wasn't engaging it wasn't a lot of movement wasn't happening so currently the way it works is that when you spawn in each of these has a 50% chance to be available which means 50% of the time you're going to run up into the button room you're gonna see the button and you're not gonna be able to turn it on and that means the parking extraction is just not going to work that and same with the warehouse so sometimes you can't use either sometimes you can use both but that is just kind of the way they work right now I assume they're gonna tinker with it more I'll add a note if they do to this video but that is how they work these are also the two main extractions for calling Raiders so a lot of times you'll hear these get called without anybody really wanting to extract...
they can get called really early on because people want to get Raiders in you can use the Raiders to flush out other people or expose where they are and also just to farm the Raiders for loot every time you hit an extraction it triggers a sort of an alarm like a Russian lady comes over an intercom and talks in Russian for a little bit about which extraction was just hit it's not really information unless you speak Russian I would imagine but it lets other players know that somebody's trying to extract or call some Raiders and then it calls the Raider so the extractions are very dynamic so on those floors that look kind of like middle and top floor these are the two main extractions the warehouse and the parking gate there are a bunch more in the basement so the sewer is not used very often but it is a relatively easy and safe extract to use for the most part which this whole sewer tunnel is accessible a few different ways but you run down here there's a button on one side of the room that drains the sewers you basically just have to wait 30 45 seconds for the sewers to drain you walk to the other side of the room and you can extract there easy peasy down on the kind of bottom side here there's two different buttons this button is basically all the way at the end the hall in a room right here and it calls an elevator right here so you're powering the elevator you have to run down you have to actually call the elevator once it's been powered once the...
elevator comes it opens up you can get in and extract right around the corner from that is in this room there's another button this is powering an elevator that's all the way up on the third floor all the way up here on the second floor and this is like a cargo elevator and it opens really wide you can get like a whole squad out of that extraction this is not used very often because it is so close to another extraction and you have to run up two or three flights of stairs to actually get to where you need to extract but that's what that button is a lot of times people will call these two buttons and then just hold this hallway down here because these are gonna spawn a lot of Raiders down here in the basement kind of around the corner from that you can go up these two hallways and back here there's the ventilation extraction you cannot be wearing a backpack it's a well you can be wearing an mbss which is a really small backpack or smaller but any backpack larger than that and you won't be able to extract so you're going to have to either ditch your backpack or move your loot around and convert it to a smaller backpack but that's there that's the closest to just being able to run up and leave if you have an mbss or smaller backpack you can just kind of walk up there and in ten-second gel extract but in

labs

you're gonna want a bigger backpack because that's where the heat profit comes from is all that loot over here you're going...
to find a button that powers another elevator and once again this button is relatively close to the elevator you go down the hall there's this little switchboard room that connects these two hallways you pop out there's an elevator right here you call that elevator and you can extract once again this button can spawn some Raiders down here so those are the extractions really you've got the two main ones that are gonna be on the first floor and the second floor and then you've got several in the basement the main ones that are used almost every single raid the parking gate and the warehouse get flipped so even if you're just kind of meandering around later in the rain scooping up loot most of the time these are gonna be open and you can just dip out but once again there's a lot of value and knowing the basement because if you're in a situation where you need to get out quick you can really easily identify where you are get down to the basement flip a button and then just go extract or if you hit o or double tap oh you can actually see which extractions have been called like which elevators and stuff like that sometimes that works it's not super reliable but it's there so that is how the extractions work I know that's a lot but it's really important to know that so that you don't run up to an extraction and say hey why am I not leaving this elevator it says this elevator right here the other thing that I want to touch on really...
quick before the video ends is some of the hot PvP areas these are like there's a few areas where fights almost always go down in

labs

and knowing where these are you can use those to your advantage and or just avoid those areas so the parking garage and the warehouse are definitely both places where a lot of PvP and PvE are going to happen in addition to that this area right here if we go up to the second floor so there's a kitchen right here and a cafeteria and there's a hallway right back here this whole area seems to be a place where a lot of PvP happens you can go up this these stairs a lot of people like to hold this hallway and because a lot of raiders can spawn up here this whole kitchen area this this whole just kind of top right corner a lot of PvP ends up happening there if you move down this hallway you see this room right here that has a bunch of rooms with keys in it this is a really high valuable loot room a lot of PvP can happen here and then if we go to the first floor the parking garage right here there's a hallway that leads all the way back out here back to this reception area this is another hallway where a lot of people like to hold the hallway wait for Raiders to come out into the parking garage kill them and scoop up their loot and a lot of people know that so a lot of people will rush this area they'll try to flush out a lot of the PvP that happens here this is an incredibly hot zone the there's in the main work area...
there's a tent over here that has some really high valuable loot like the led X's will spawn in there right out of the gate a lot of times people will rush to this area to try to capture that really valuable loot so a lot of PvP can happen here as well the basement is really just kind of like sometimes it depends on the raid but you're gonna have more of that near these extraction points and the second floor is same most people are just moving towards these extraction points the conference room and the main the manager's office here are really exposed points if you have the manager's office key there's some really good loot in there but it's very visible and exposed so you know use at your own risk another place where you can find a lot of PvP is here on the other side of the warehouse there's a few staircases and hallways there's a big server room right here with a catwalk and in this office a lot of times PvP can happen

labs

a lot of

labs

of people trying to hold areas and farm those Raiders and so you've got people that like to hold and then you've got people that like players that like to flush out those people and engage in that PvP so those main areas are gonna be this whole kitchen and hallway back here along this hallway with the security rooms the hallway right here by the parking gate and then this server room and catwalk and console room right here so I know that's a lot I know that looking at the maps it's really...
hard to kind of understand where we are this is an incredible map there's a ton of dynamics to it when it's played well there is a lot going on here and like we said this is just kind of a general overview but I really hope that this helped give you an overview of what how to get in what to expect when you get in with those scav Raiders so a few points of reference as a starting place there's kind of like a launching pad to learn the map and learn where to go I hope that this helps you understand how the extractions work and some spots to either avoid if you're not looking for PvP or to get towards if you are looking for some PvP and I hope that this kind of provided that launching pad for you to learn this really awesome map thank y'all so much as always for taking the time to check out this video I know that this map is complicated there was a lot here so please if there's any questions drop it down below like I said I am definitely going to be having a link to the chair group

labs

wiki page and which has all these maps and stuff like that in the bio down here my goal is always to create content that helps shorten the learning curve of

tarkov

and get you and your raids having more fun as soon as possible I do have map

guide

s for every other map in the game so definitely check those out thank you again for stopping by we'll see y'all on the next one
