Top 10 Mistakes New Players Make In Tarkov - Escape From Tarkov
what's shakin nerds welcome back to another

tarkov

video and today we're gonna be talking about the top 10

mistakes

most new

players

make

when they're playing

tarkov

and the reason I know this is because I've made these

mistakes

so we're gonna be talking about ammo types we're gonna be talking about how to get rid of gear fear and so much more so stick around you're nerds the first tip I want to talk to you guys about is ammo itself now in a lot of these tip guides they'll tell you hey you're using the wrong ammo

make

sure you're using the right ammo that's not always doable when you're a newer player and you don't have a lot of ammo and luck so what I do want to get across to you guys right now is understanding the ammo you're using so it's very hard for us to look at PS ammo for the 5 4 5 on the left and then we look at BS ammo for the 5 4 5 on the right and being able to tell the difference there's not like a color gradient that we can tell like ooh the red stuffs better than the blue stuff it's just one of those things where you have to find out and that's why this all-in-one ammo table thank you again - no food after midnight if you guys don't know him he's an amazing content creator go check out his work on Twitch or YouTube and thank you again if we look at this table we can see that the PS ammo is 50 damage and 22 penetration where BS ammo it's less damage at 40 but the penetration...

values super-high I will have this ammo chart in the description down below and also no food after Midnight's twitch stream will be linked there also so when you're using this ammo all I want you guys to know is what you should be doing with this ammo so what I mean by that is say it's early wipe PS ammo you can generally shoot anywhere because not many people are running around with a lot of armor at this time but say it's mid wipe and you're running around PS armor you're probably gonna want to aim for the legs always that's where you're gonna want to focus your PS ammo because there's no armor on the legs so you're gonna leg meta them to death so just understand what ammo you're bringing into the match to know where to shoot the person and the best chances you have at killing someone generally the next tip I want to talk about is how some people do use offline mode incorrectly and now if you're going to just learn all the maps and you just want a run-and-gun really fast or even if you don't want to play with it any scavs on the map and you're just learning extracts good go do that because I think that is the number one thing you guys that's not in this tip list but learn the extracts learn one map at a time learn one focus on it learn it until the back of your hand go on to the next map but what I mean by using it incorrectly is say you have a bunch of gear that you're scared to use because of gear fear but...

you want to practice playing an online mode but offline with scavs and whatnot and you put on all this sick gear and you're just on offline mode killing people left right and center and then you go online and scabs are killing you left right and center and you're getting frustrated well it's probably because you're using the wrong gear you're using gear you wouldn't normally use in online mode so what I always tell people is if you're going into offline mode

make

sure you're using gear that you actually use online so if you don't use usually an m4 but instead you use an ak74 n that's not really modded out or anything use that ak-74 n in offline mode get better with that one gun get used to it get used to that recoil and offline get used to getting headshots on scavs because if you're just using the best of the best gear because you're not worried about it it's really not making you a better player in the long run because in the end you're using the total opposite side of the spectrum when you're in an online match so just

make

sure you're using gear that you would use online when you're playing offline tip number three is running and gunning and I have to tell you when I first started this game I was so so guilty of this I come from the background of halo Call of Duty on the Xbox where sound doesn't really matter you know you're just running around anyways like a frantic lunatic so who cares in this...
top 10 mistakes new players make in tarkov   escape from tarkov
game audio cues are like 80% of this game and they

make

a lot of noise the trees everything when you're running by them when it's there rustling next to you I can't tell you how much I kill people now when I'm just taking a second I'm going slow I'm listening to audio cues and I can just hear people going full force and customs and that's like my favorite place to really listen is I love customs you guys it's one of my favorite Maps I know a lot of you guys are gonna hate on me right now but it is a good map when you're around the three story of the two-story dorm there's so many trees around you that if you hit a tree just a little you can definitely hear someone in the distance so a tip I want to tell you guys is this isn't call of duty take your time relax really stand there and listen sometimes you know take take a couple of steps look around take a second listen keep moving and keep doing that until you know like a path because say again customs there's a path a way around into the trees that you can not

make

sound but you can keep going forward you don't just have to barrel straight through right so just

make

sure you're taking that time and listening and making sure oh I made a lot of noise on that one I should stand still for a second just to

make

sure no one's waiting for me I can't tell you how much my game just progressed when I just took my time and yes it isn't for everyone to do that and there...
are some

players

that can just run and gun okay there are some amazing

players

but but they know everything about the game they know where the sounds are coming from and in this game it is sometimes hard to understand where the sound is coming from I'm not gonna say that audio is a hundred percent amazing but in general you can tell where the audio is coming from or what area and the more you play the more you'll figure that out so just take your time and know that oh if I step here I'm gonna

make

a lot of friggin noise but if I step over here I'll

make

way less noise or if I crouch walk over this it's way less noise just

make

sure you're not running and gunning you guys tip number four I'm actually doing karate chops right now I know you guys can't see him but I'm doing them haha tip number four is not having a goal when you're going into a map most of the time especially early wipe early when I'm low level I have a goal when I'm going into a map so if I'm on the Salewa kits and I need to find suffice to Lewis I'm going to a map where I know they are and that's what I'm trying to find right away now not to say that you always have to stick to this goal but always have a mission in mind and then if if things change you know say you kill a couple of

players

and you loot a lot of stuff and you just want to get the hell out of there giver but just

make

sure you have a goal in mind where you want to go on the map...
what you're trying to loot what you're looking for because tasks are so important especially for beginning

players

you want to

make

sure you're leveling up your trader so you can unlock those better ammos those better guns and so forth and so forth so always

make

sure you have a goal in mind and how to get that goal done so if you're going to try to get say so Lewis okay I'm going to shoreline where do Salewa spawn on here let's do some research or hey I need to Lewis and I'm going to customs okay where do they usually spawn on customs let's find that out and then have a goal to to go there and try to at least look for them and then if nothing comes of it okay then you can kind of deviate from your plan and go okay I'm just gonna kill a couple scavs loot them and and get the hell out but just always have a goal in mind when you're starting up a match okay we're at halfway point number five is trades know at least a few of these trades and they're gonna help you out so much at the beginning phase of your

tarkov

career so the first one I want to talk about is proper level one he has two Blackrock chest rigs and that trades for an aka 74 n this is a great gun you can find a lot of these black rocks from scavs collect them and if you need to use them you need to use them but if you want a gun just know you can trade two of these for an ak74 n another weapon at your disposal that you can't buy right away is actually hand grenades...
so if you collect two Zippo lighters you can give these two peacekeeper he'll give you one hand grenade for them hand grenades are invaluable early game gets you out of some weird sticky situations someone's hiding in the bush or behind a rock or something and you want to get them out of there you can throw that grenade they'll run away and you'll be able to take some potshots at them and hopefully kill them and now the last two items are my like go to 100% always be keepin these items because they're medical items and in tarkoff you're always going to be using medical items over and over again so in the long run this is gonna save you a lot of money now my first things duct tape - duct tape trades for a car first aid kit well you know early you can't hand only grab a ITU's and bandages but with this car first aid kit it does both of these things and way better than those two items on their own so you're gonna be using this a lot and the next thing is something that you even use we when you're level say 30 or 40 its painkillers these will always be in your gamma probably or at least at least on you somewhere and so if you collect two matches you can trade two of those for painkillers this is gonna save you a lot of money it's gonna be so beneficial if you do these trades over and over again and I I do them regularly still now at level 50 tip number six is something that is all over the internet if you search for it there's so...
many opinions on it and guess what I've got an opinion on it and I'm gonna tell you my ideas on how you should fix it so the big thing in here guys is peer fear it's a super common feeling people have intercom especially when they're newer so what happens to say you find something really rad or you killed out a buttered player killed out that doesn't

make

sense but I was you know I mean you kill someone that's buttered out they have a lot of this cool gear and now you have all this gear in your inventory but you don't want to use it you're scared to use it my tip on on gear fear is just get rid of it so what I mean by that is sell it to either on the flea market or sell it to the appropriate trader and get the money for it and then maybe you can buy like say two or three loadouts of what you're comfortable with and you'll be able to find more cool gear with it so what happened to me is I'd all this cool gear on my first I didn't want to use it I was scared it was jamming up my inventory and then what happened is before I knew it white came and I I lost it anyways so why not just sell it instead of being scared to use it and a you got more inventory space B you're gonna have a whole bunch of loadouts now to use to find more gear and then eventually you're going to get more comfortable it does usually take one whole wipe for you to get comfortable with stuff and realize hey it's just pixels you guys this is just pixels...
but until you can realize that just sell the tip number seven is something that I have been guilty about a lot of times and that's why I'm making this video guys because a lot of the stuff I'm guilty of and I had to learn it the hard way and I wish someone told me and maybe I just didn't look for it maybe I knew better but I'm just you know I'm Canadian so I'm not all there but here's the thing looting right after a kill this is the surest way for you to die the next you're gonna be the next death it's easy cuz maybe they don't have a teammate but you making all this noise someone might be running to your location so when you kill someone just reassess the situation you know take a look maybe get another angle on the body keep an eye on it see if someone's going to go to it and just you know assess their surroundings you guys because I'm guaranteeing you there's going to be another person either with them or coming towards so don't get too crazy don't get to you know loot drooly and and want to go after that loot right away because it'll all be there once you kill everyone the loot will all be there just kill everyone first tip number eight is something you don't really think about a lot but it is

make

sure you have enough stamina before you get into a firefight yes there's a lot of times you don't know you're gonna get into a firefight so you don't know to have stamina but there are a lot...
of times you do know that you're about to get into a firefight by either you can hear someone in a building or in the bush is or just ahead of you so just take a second and recoup that stamina because I can't tell you how many times I've died because I couldn't run away from a grenade I couldn't run the cover it's just something you don't really think about when you're new to

tarkov

you're just worried about surviving but just

make

sure you know look at your stamina bar keep in the back here ahead how much stamina you have and that way you know you're out so maybe we should call this no your outs tip number eight not keep an eye on your salmon there you go tip number nine is something that like I get told why the hell do I do it and I think people are so wrong and that's ensure your people insure it it's there for a reason and I get so much stuff back so there's two ways of looking at this okay one say this is early wipe and you die okay not many people have a lot of big bags so they can't take everything so say they kill two or three

players

they might leave some of your stuff behind and guess what that's worth a lot of rubles at the beginning of a wipe man money is very important and say it's mid wipe so you join later on no one wants your pp19 or your ak-74m that's not really modded so they're not gonna take it but to you it does mean a lot because you spent a lot of good rubles on it so if I were you...
I would just insure everything you can you know it's generally not that much especially with early stuff that doesn't cost a lot so people insure your we're on our final tip and I just want to say thank you nerds so much for watching even if you guys are waiting for some more nonsense so you can

make

fun of me in the comments hey thanks for just watching the video you guys I don't care if it you hate on it I just appreciate you nerds so my final tip is you don't have to kill every SCAF now this might sound ridiculous because you're like but geeks I want that luteal OOP I know you want that luteal OOP but here's the thing say you're passing a road right and you can leave a scav alive and he doesn't see you so you can slip by them and you go towards you no further down the road if you hear gunshots behind you now from the road you know it's that sky fighting someone and even if he died you know there's a player over there so you can get in position you can get ready and now you can get not only that scavs loop because he's probably going to loot them but you can get his loot I really hope that

make

s sense to you guys cuz I've used this many times and I have to tell you guys it works amazingly so thank you nerds so much for watching this I hope you liked it if you did think about hitting the subscribe button think about hitting that bell also know I do stream five days a week on twitch TV I start at 7 a.m. Pacific Standard Time...
Monday to Friday and I'm usually on until about 3:00 so thank you nerds so much and I'll see you guys later
