Tarkov Beginners Guide: How to Kill Scavs Easily

Tarkov Beginners Guide: How to Kill Scavs Easily
welcome back to another episode of the escaper

tarkov

beginner's

guide

in this episode we're gonna be talking about how to effectively attack and defend against regular scavenger AI this is one of the biggest threats in the game other than other players scab bosses and Raiders and the threat that you're gonna be running into the most the good news is if you learn how they move and how they act and behave you can

easily

attack and defend them and take the least amount of damage possible one of the biggest threats to a new player is merely understanding how the scavenger AI works and using it to your advantage to

easily

kill

and dispatch them to make your raids better today I'm going to be using an ek 101 it doesn't really matter what weapon you choose as a solo player I do recommend suppressed not only is it going to help you attack the scavengers quietly but you're gonna be able to effectively

kill

PMC's and keep them guessing on where you are so the first thing we're gonna be taking a look at is scavengers yelling at you whenever scavengers are in the area they will always try to yell aggressively at you or to other scavengers in the region to let them know they know where you are and you can use this to your advantage to get into cover to avoid taking shots now sometimes this can give you a second or two to actually outmaneuver the scavengers and rarely the scavengers will even try to flip you off and you can use that to your advantage to...

actually go and

them during the process so I'm gonna go over and try to find this scab that we just spotted in front of us and see if I can get them to get pissed off at us so we can hear his yell here we go when these scavengers spot me they should actually aggressively yell there we go we heard the yell so immediately I'm gonna try to go to cover I'm gonna try to do that again so the scavengers should yell at us see how much time we have to react let's try that one more time I'm breaking - site every single time at break line of sight it should reset the lock we'll get to that in a little bit see that I hear the yell immediately do a dodge to the right or to the left to get cover behind line of sight do that because we broke proper line of sight he left combat and then he re-entered combat so often whenever scavengers reenter combat mode they will let you know that they see you which is a huge advantage if you're wondering how experienced players avoid being shot by scavengers this is the mechanic that prevents nine times out of ten taking an unnecessary shot from a scav it's knowing your surroundings and using audio to your advantage that's why I think you should use a headset or a pair of earbuds because it will give you an advantage over players that don't use that equipment or help defend against scavengers anyway this is actually a good a good way to show off something else grenades actually work really well against...

scavengers especially flash banks you can actually use flash bangs to melee scavengers that's how effective they are as long as the scavenger is looking at the flashbang when it explodes they will be full flashed now unfortunately in some situations scavengers won't just stun the stand they're dazed they'll go and run to a defensive position and sit there but that can give you more than enough time to either take cover and heal or be the aggressor and take advantage of their inability to see so I know that there's some scabs behind this rock here there's one right there to our right was one there to my left the guy on the right side is gonna start to run back to cover let's do that one more time here he's full flashed so as you can see is no clue what's going on here so flash bangs do work against scavengers and if you are really struggling against them it wouldn't be a bad idea to maybe bring a flashbang or two it's not needed but I just figured I'd show you guys that it does actually work out smoke grenades also work to it's very similar to like a bush so as long as you're like fifty percent behind the smoke the scab won't see you but the moment that you're kind of like fifty-one percent into the smoke they might see you and start shooting you so smokes they do work especially well with thermals but not as reliable or fun as flash banks so now let's talk about actually breaking line-of-sight and utilizing...

covert movement to your advantage when it comes to fighting

scavs

this is my favorite way to fight scavengers and if you understand house calves in a raft of you during this you are going to be able to

kill

them really

easily

so let's try to get this guy's attention I'm going to put myself behind this tree I'm gonna go into a Crouch going to covert movement mode I'm always keeping this tree in between me and the scavenger let's see if we can he ran for cover himself let's see if we can pull him out well I mean let's wait for him hey there buddy I'm over here that one got him good he's just he's blind there we go all right I'm gonna go Crouch and then I'm gonna go into covert movement which means slow walking the Crouch he was just locked on we broke the line of sight he now has no idea where we are let's peek it get his attention try do it one more time hey buddy let's shoot him in the head here we go well he got me that time so he's just shot us let's go behind cover crouching Co for a movement look at that he's no clue he's looking right at us right now we broke line-of-sight we went into covert movement no idea even though I have a broken arm we have another scavenger that's coming down the way right now because we heard his scapula here that here he comes so let's do the exact same thing now I'm putting myself an unnecessary risk here because I'm trying to get their attention...
intentionally but in this case I would just break the lock and

kill

them but the sake of the video let's intentionally try to get this guy to shoot us in fact we could probably just go closer so you just shot at us we're gonna go break line of sight the rock is in between me and the SCAF I'm kind of crouching a little bit now you don't have to do this for very long like I wouldn't be crouching in the middle of the open field you know because the threat here now is from other players but you only have to do it for a second or two right only a second or two he left combat mode and then entered covert movement broking breaking the lock so he reeled giving us more than enough time to

kill

him that makes any sense let's go find some more scabs so in this section of woods we have lots of cover lots of ways to break line-of-sight we even have some of the tall grass which will help us with covert movement so again I'm gonna put myself intentionally out there more than I normally would as you can see if this was a regular raid I would just go app you know and

kill

the other guy but I want to showcase some scab mechanics so let's do it right first I'm gonna get the attention of the scab now I'm gonna go covert movement here actually exited combat and re-entered there even though we did a our body was at a cover he tried to shoot we entered line-of-sight break then covert movement then he kept on moving and he wasn't shooting at us until I...
shot him first then he tried to return fire this guy on our right side let's see if we can get him to do something fun all right we got a scout behind us we're actually out in the open right now I'm gonna trust in the system areas as you can see he's in a crouched stance moving towards my position this guy's just gave me away it's break line of sight again see if we can get him to go back in there because we are playing in a crouch in a slow walk the scavengers will sometimes do the same all right let's see come on buddy all right broke line of sight he's right on the other side of this tree let's see what he does he's doing it all right so this guy was pissed off at us he's firing from an unknown position he's still yelling at us while he's moving over to us so let's Crouch covert us the cover between him and I and no big deal at all eris guy he's in covert movement mode right now we're playing sneaky so the

scavs

play sneaky he's moving in on the last note position where he heard our gunshots now unfortunately his buddy spotted us so this time we're gonna give some distance and we're actually gonna flank left we're gonna break line-of-sight change your angle you're pretty far out there we should be able to flank this scavenger there are too many issues look at that he's doing the same thing before to breaking line-of-sight is the most effective way of

kill

ing scavengers sometimes the...
combination between putting objects in between you and the scab vision going into covert movement and being sneaky suppressed weapons do help because it masks your shot placements and also it's gonna protect you against players and then also listening for those yells so whenever you hear a yell you can get into cover pretty quick and use that to your advantage so now I'm gonna be applying what I was just talking about on factory on horde mode so I'm not gonna be doing any sort of experimentation I'm not gonna give the

scavs

a whole lot of chances but I definitely will run out of ammo here so let's go same applies can be same methods can be applied indoors as well as outdoors braking line-of-sight using cover Cofer of movement to your advantage so with that let's get to it scabby else flash banks break the lock go for the repeat when you apply damage to a scavenger they can't accurately return fire that's how a lot of people

kill

Kill

a scab raters and sky bosses you're shooting they can't reply they can't shoot back accurate let's get a little bit more dangerous here here they yell moving to cover as a power slide you gotta be careful about that pepper hunter over the reload we got the guy's left's run to cover brake line of sight go back into cover let's cap was looking to the right because he thought it was right but I was really left and let's covert movement now if the

scavs

guessing on where you're going...
to be when we go lad they will know though footsteps behind oh he spotted me I have to pick up one of their weapons here tosses that's Kevin there am I trying to grab his shotty the y'all just saved my life there try to get myself another weapon prefer to have a shotgun if I can run back into cover after the yell move into our right move into our left's right it's gonna be bad Prince probably take a shot here maybe all right we got them pushing covert movement let's go over the heel they come all calm you need that here they come braking line of sight knows where I am now go for the reload get cover right side left side and back lads other one back left's right side reload line of sight back on the cover right side great line of sight it's gonna get a little wacky here now oh and the toilets flip to the weapon reload now double tap go covert even guessing go for a heel so even in horde mode I was actually able to get things to calm down a little bit being completely surrounded the key takeaways of this video is number one listen for scavenger yells you'll be able to reposition and get into cover number two break line of sight number three riah TAC whenever you feel like they've actually exited combat mode or potentially enter covert movement to keep them guessing on where you are also being able to flank when you break line of sight is a really great way of

kill

ing scavengers on maps like Customs woods shore line and interchange you can...
keep them guessing on your last known position at the end of the day the most important thing is putting objects in between you and the scavengers after your getting shot at or you hear a scavenger yell sometimes taking damage is inevitable but if you're in a defensive position after you take that damage it means you're still alive you can heal up and bring back the fight to them so thank you guys so much for watching and I hope this video kind of gives you guys some understanding on how I approach

kill

ing scavengers and all of my raids I really slowed things down broke it down for you guys and put myself out there to show how the scavengers work and interact with you and how line-of-sight can be used to your advantage thanks again for watching consider subscribing here for some more escape from
