Recoil & Ergonomics Explained! - Escape From Tarkov Beginners Guide!
what's up guys I'm Jessica Zam welcome back to another
tarkovvideo in this video we're gonna be doing a kind of general overview of
tarkovyou know should you care about them how they work in the game like most of my videos this isn't intended to be a crazy deep dive where we discussed the absolute meta attachments and that kind of stuff there's a lot of amazing content creators that have made all sorts of
guides for all sorts of weapons and how to mid maxim and stuff like that this is more for new players to the game who maybe just don't understand how they work or keep hearing other experienced players talk about
recoilor ago and what to use and what not to use so hopefully this helps clear that up a little bit i stream
tarkova few days a week on Twitch all my links will be down below and I'd love to have you stop by we've got an awesome community we love to answer questions and help new players and just have a good time so but with all that out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so let's just dive right into the
tarkovso I've got two weapons right here they're both enforced this one on the left is kind of generally regarded as like a meta m4 right now I could definitely change a few things but it's basically a metaphor and on the right we have a stock standard just purchased from the trader how it comes m4 so...
you can see it
ergonomicshere and you can see weak well here
recoilinto vertical and horizontal I will say vertical
recoilis the number that people normally look at to judge the
recoilof the weapon the horizontal
recoilin this game at least my experience isn't that crazy even if it's not kitted down but the initial burst of a the vertical
recoilis really where you're gonna see and have see kind of the difference and have a lot of that trouble in weapons that don't have great
recoiland then up at the top here we've got her go so obviously
recoilof the gun and the lower here this 38 is gonna bring down that vertical
recoiljump a lot
ergonomicson the other hand that effects a few different things mainly it affects how fast you can aim down sights or 80s so how snappy that interaction is a lot of the really big you know DMR is like an m1 and that's heavy and chunky can feel like it takes forever to actually pull up and get a sight picture on an enemy whereas they really kitted out and for it can be really snappy or any gun with higher go and the second thing in effects is how much stamina is being drained while you ATS because when you sprint you're losing stamina but also when you're aiming down sights you're losing stamina and if you aim down sides long enough and your stamina goes completely away your character starts to move around and wave around a lot which can be...
pretty annoying now these stats
ergonomicsare affected by the attachments and all of the different components of the guns
escapephotograph' has the most complex and in-depth weapon modification system that I've ever seen in a game I don't know that a deeper one in any game ever as you can see there's tons of different things we could add more attachments and lasers and flashlights and stuff like that even to this gun it's absolutely insane and it can be overwhelming the difference between these two guns almost every single component was replaced other than the lower receiver the upper receiver the gas block the buffer tube the buttstock the optics the iron sights the foregrip all of that stuff can be replaced and don't think that there's you know I mean there's only two ways to run guns stock standard and absolutely medicated you know there's so much in-between here but this is just to show you the difference between you know these weapons and the Ergo and
recoildifferences but you can basically double click on any of these and see so the gas block added to ergo here this foregrip mid
recoilreduction and and at an Ergo you know normally your argo comes from things like iron sights or pistol grip this has 18 organ ah mcc's and then
recoilis a lot of times gonna come from the compensator or the fore grip like I could get a foregrip that does 4%
recoilinstead of two and stuff like that but a lot of them do overlap and...
there's a lot that provide both organ Amin and
recoilbenefits and you can kind of just like mess around with that as you're kidding out the weapons and as you're kind of like modifying them using the flea market is a great way to just like sort by pistol grips that can fit on an m4 if you're using one and start to look and find kind of like a price to performance ratio of what you want to do so we're gonna go into an offline reign here in a minute but you know meta
recoilyou know getting something like 38 you know I don't know how much lower I could get that and this is probably the lowest you can get any fully automatic weapon in this game from
tarkovat least right now and it can be pretty nutty I mean it can be an absolute laser beam especially if you upgrade some skills that affect that as well so the
recoilcontrol skill and the assault rifle skill also affect the
tarkovso as you level up those skills that's gonna help even though the stats on your gun will stay the same your PMC's ability to handle the
recoilwill get better so when all those things get combined it can be pretty insane
ergonomicsis something that I feel like a lot of people sleep on sometimes the when you have a high enough
ergonomicsyou can actually get to a point where you not only don't lose stamina while AD essing but you actually gain stamina back while AD essing and the repercussions of that are pretty insane when you think about if...
you're on the run being able to sit and actually rest your characters gaining stamina wow you're a TS inning and you're scanning the area that can be absolutely huge and you know that if you do if you are scanning an area you're aiming down sights and have you been doing it for a long time if you get ambushed or if you get shot at being able to immediately just get up and run and not having worried about if you've completely erased understand I mean if you sniped and
tarkovthen you felt that where you've been glassing and you've been looking for an enemy and then somebody kind of surprises you and you try to get up and run away and you've got absolutely no stamina left not only that like we talked about the ability to aim down sights quickly especially in like CQB scenarios when you're close quarters combat being able to snap in and get a sight picture as soon as possible can be incredibly helpful now the other thing similar like.how skills can affect
recoilanother thing that affects the
ergonomicsis the weight of the weapon so if you see up here the three point three two kilograms three point four we can go down to a much bigger weapon here this is you know almost over twice the weight of that at almost seven kilograms so that's going to be something as well that plays into it so you can try and get a gun light with as much
recoilas possible and you can see that so if we take these weapons into the hideout we can start...
to see the difference between you know really high
recoiland really low
recoilso we'll put this on full auto so we'll start with the kind of standard m4 I'm not going to move my mouse at all I'm just going to use the left click and that's it so you can see that vertical
recoilis pretty nutty we can do that again at a farther target away and it's just it's just awful so we switch over to the kind of like meta kitted out m4 and you'll see the difference here there was still a vertical pool but it kind of corrected itself it pulled back down and we stayed on target basically the entire time obviously far the way it's gonna be a little bit worse but we're not shooting up into the ceiling here so that's kind of the difference there another note here let me just back out so we can get refill our mags here another thing that you can see is that affects
recoilis the height of your character so if we look here and we aim center of mass standing up you know we started right here in the center we ended up at his neck and if we just crouch our character and we aim you know right about here you can see how much smaller that spread was you know our initial shot was down there but it only went up a tiny bit as opposed to starting center of mass and then ending up around the neck or shoulder and that gets even crazier if you go prone you can't prone in the hideout but if you go prone and you're shooting at an enemy it significantly...
recoilof the gun and I remember in a previous video that Veritas made he posed you know what I mean that that's a great alternative to spending a ton of money because of course you can combine those things you can get best in slot for
recoiland then you can just lay prone and try and kill all your enemies and it's gonna be a laser beam but if you're a new player and you can't get these just absolute meta attachments then what you can do is utilize crouching and going prone whenever possible to actually gain a huge boost's to your
recoilso we can also take a look at the organ ama care when I aim down sights you know we can see it's not incredibly long the m4 comes with pretty decent or go right out the bat but you can see how much snappier this is with almost twice the Ergo so if I switch the camera over over here and I run around the hideout for a little bit and use up some of my stamina once I get back in here and the bottom left you can see as I ATS my stamina actually starts to increase again and I'm just standing there and I'm gaining stamina I'm not even having a crouched I'm just standing up fully and I'm gaining that stamina and if we switch to a bigger weapon let's replace this m4 with this big old our SAS and do the same thing we run around and waste some stamina if I come in here the opposite is gonna happen as soon as I 80s I'm gonna start losing that stamina and you can see that so that is could be...
something that is incredibly powerful you can throw a 4x or you know type of optic onto an m4 and or any gun and eight are any gun that you can get really high ergo and you know flip it in semi-auto and you can basically have yourself a DMR where you never run out of stamina so those things are pretty insane so that's basically it those are the main differences between organ ah mcc's and
tarkovyou know I'll let it be up to you how you want to play the game and how you want to utilize these mechanics I will say as a quick side note um oftentimes the may be second best or third best in slot you know pistol grips or buttstocks or any of the attachments will oftentimes have almost the same stats as the metal ones and be significantly cheaper you know the you know probably the absolute meta foregrip has 4%
recoilreduction and for less than half the cost you can get one with 3%
recoilreduction so just know that that you know what I mean there's there are more important things than
tarkovthen you know the
ergonomicsof a gun map knowledge good positioning and good aim are always gonna be you know what killed players so you can a lot of times get away with really close to meta or just not even close to meta but really efficient weapons without having to spend all of the money on the parts so that's basically it that's how
tarkovthat's how they affect your PMC when...
you're in a raid like I said I'll let it be up to you what you think is fun and what play style I definitely encourage you to try to try everything you know what I mean like there's so much out there try different builds try and have fun with it if you want to play with meta go that but if your can't afford that stuff there's definitely efficient kits out there we could talk all day about top tier attachments but I hope that this answered some of those questions and helped you understand these mechanics a little bit more thank you all so much as always for taking the time to check out this video if you have any questions about this please drop them down below if there's any
