Tips For Squad Players! - Ultimate Escape From Tarkov Beginners Guide!
what's up guys I'm Jessica Zam and welcome back to another
tarkovvideo in this video we're gonna be diving into a few
tipsfor playing as a duo or a
tarkovplaying with a group all the way up to a team of five can be so much fun and can create some crazy moments in this game but it definitely presents itself with its own set of challenges and you definitely need to kind of alter your strategy at least a little bit to make playing with a
squadthe most effective it can be so we're gonna dive into a few of my
tipsfor that extreme
tarkova few days a week all my links will be down below if you want to come and stop by and say hey but with all that out of the way let's go ahead and dive right in so the first tip is just going to be learn the call-outs so there isn't like a predetermined like call-outs for each thing on each map a lot of times a lot of the maps that if you want to like a reference or a
guidea lot of the maps at least the website that I use kind of has some of the call-outs on the actual maps that you can look on online but it doesn't really matter what you call locations it's super important that you and your teammates have the same verbage for positions on the map there is nothing worse than when an enemy engaged you and you're all now trying to figure out where that enemy is and somebody calls out something like spine or scab ambush or something and if people don't know...
where that is that's when things start to fall apart communication gets crazy people start to hesitate because they don't want a team kill and you can die so having some consistent verbage that you know that your whole
squadknows that you can call something out even hey I think I see something over there or I heard something over here the whole unit can now even if it's just a duo shift their attention in the right direction or you can use those call-outs from when you're flanking or really anything so getting on the same page about learning some call-outs you can start with just high-level just big points on the map and then if you like really start to enjoy playing certain Maps together really whittling down and having something for as many places as possible just means that communication is going to be even more clear and you're going to be able to kind of make the moves that you want to make with your
squadthe second tip I have is know what each other looks like this can actually be super helpful every time I run like a duo raid one of the first things I do is I'll just turn and look at what gear my teammate is wearing now for sure there is a possibility that you know if I look okay you've got this helmet and I could see an enemy with that helmet as well but by looking at like okay m4 you've got an Alton helmet and you're a bear and you've got the flannel on even if I don't remember every single bit of that the backpack is...
another thing too you've got a tri zip what size that is and stuff like that because once again one of the absolute worst things that can happen as a do-over squatter the worst thing that can happen is a team kill right and I have found when playing in a duo especially or even
squads hesitating because I'm wondering if that's my teammate is an absolute just like an awful thing so because it can get you killed if it's not your teammate or if you don't know what the person looks like and you're not sure where they are and you see somebody up there and you just take the shot so every time I run into a raid it's gonna be harder with a bigger
squadbut you totally can but every time I happen to a raid I look and say okay what are you wearing and then we can do our thing so that way if we get separated in a firefight or if anything happens hopefully I can get that less hesitation in the moment where I need to shoot at somebody and potentially drop an enemy so that's tip number two tip number three is try to whatever your strategy is around like if you guys like to split up stick together try not to stick too close together so I've definitely been in situations before where we were moving down a hallway maybe on the shoreline Resort and we're kind of doing our thing doing our thing and if you line yourselves up you can really easily get mowed down the whole duo the
squador even a collateral kill I even had a moment where I went to the my...
friend in front of me ducked and as soon as he ducked an enemy that was engaging at him shot missed him and I was directly behind him and died and that was a situation where we both would have made it out if we weren't kind of lined up and that works that rule applies not just lining up obviously for like collateral hits but even just sticking really close together puts you at risk of grenade throws killing a bunch of you or even just being spotted as a group especially if you have like three or four keeping a little bit of distance that way if somebody spots you they might say hey oh it's a 2-man I can engage them and little do they know there's one more or two more or something like that so you're keeping a little bit of an element of surprise when you're out in the open and you're avoiding multi kills when you're close together now the next step I have is suppression so this is in value well once again whether you're just playing as a duo or all the way up to a huge
squadif I'm engaging with somebody and I can call out exactly where this enemy is and my teammate is either trying to figure out where they are or get close to me or something like that me just sending shots downrange and suppressing my enemy behind hard cover gives my teammate the time to flank get a better angle there are countless situations where forcing somebody to remain behind hard cover forcing somebody to stick to a position if you know they're trying to flee...
can so often give you or your teammate the time to get to a better position and just completely just destroy them without it having to be a fight where there's return fire so using suppression in a multitude of ways can be really really helpful it can help like stall and engagement just long enough for even you to reposition get closer get farther away or even not end the engagement but it gives you an extra second to communicate where the person is to your teammate it can be a really really helpful tool the next tip I have is try to use complementary kits so this is this affords you an advantage that solo
playersdon't have is that you can run somebody with a kit that's a really close quarters combat maybe four hallways or room clearing so I'm act like shorelines are an example way out in the open you can have so much open space and then in the resort there's really tight spaces so somebody can run a kit with really close quarters combat somebody couldn't run a kit with long range you can have somebody run a thermal so when you're running a thermal sight you know it's really hard to the thermals have their drawbacks as well so you might be able to scan and see somebody but if you lose them or if you're trying to communicate to a
squadif everyone's got thermals it's kind of hard to figure out whose heat signatures who having somebody was like a valet or a 4x scope and somebody with a thermal those kids complement each other really...
really well because the thermal person can spot and say hey I can't get an angle on this guy but I saw him right over there and the person without the thermal can actually see the cover the buildings what's going on where the person is was it just a scav or was that an actual PMC so all sorts of stuff like that using complimentary kits all the way down to your armor your bags your rigs everything can really help make the raid move in a way that you want it to move and the last tip and this is probably the most important thing when it comes to duo-trio
squadplay is keep your coms clean so it can be really really hard especially in bigger groups if y'all are trying I feel or talking or if multiple people are talking or if people are talking over each other to get the information that's needed especially when a firefight happens so in a game like
tarkovwhere you can really quickly just in an instant feel like you saw somebody move left to right over here by that rock or you guys can be moving and instantly get one tapped you have no idea where from there's so many different situations where if comms are already happening if people are already talking if they're telling stories about what happens then that day or at work it might be really hard for you to interject and say hey I saw somebody right there or if somebody dies and then there's an eruption of comes where people are like where where where where the person who has the...
information is having a hard time actually getting that information out so you know this is of course all on how serious you want to take the game if you guys are just there to have fun and meme around of course but if you're really looking to survive more encounters as a unit has a
squadI can't stress enough how important just keeping the comms really clean really simple really short and effective and that's a whole other point is that even if even if you do have the information and you're you're the one giving that information out learning how to communicate quickly and not just be like okay over there to my right there's a rock and beyond that rock there's this tree and then this and that being able to kind of and this just comes with time and playing the game but being able to communicate quickly because that's something that I struggled with a lot is I'm in the heat of the moment of I see somebody and I really want this Kayla I really want to engage in this PvP action I really hard time translating my thoughts to words so my teammate is like hey I want to help I don't know what's going on and hi there's just this disconnect between my head and my mouth so that's another part of keeping the that comes really clean is learning how to communicate I'm really concisely and effectively even if it's let's back off and then I'll tell you what's going on if you know that there's just too much going on to...
communicate it so stuff like that can really really help keep the raid moving in the direction you want to move and keep you guys alive so that's it for this one those the
