Ultimate Customs Guide - Beginner & Advanced - 0.12.3 - Escape From Tarkov - 1440p60
Whether you're brand new to the game, whether you've been playing the game for a long time,
Customsis a difficult map to learn, so I've condensed a lot of important information about spawns, parkour loot, and key spawns into this
guideto help you along to help navigate
guide. First you will quickly take a quick look at the map and this will be in the description below. I didn't actually create this map but all credits go to Stun But I just want to teach you guys something super quick here is the importance of spawns and to understand where is useful and where to look at as an example some of the spawns in the game, just like this one it's down the embankment and you've got this one down at the trailer park too and sometimes you can actually spawn an enemy here if you spawn here if you're quick enough you can actually go all the way running through the parking and catching an angle on and in front of them even away tely spawn sees the problem - these two spawns are very obvious to see if you get the railroad to talk about spawn like I showed before and you run right through and throw a nade when you get killed by the spawn and get angry about it, just understand what happened and why?
An example would be if I got the trailer park spawn. I know there's a pretty good chance someone is actually straight ahead, so instead I'd either run down that path or pull straight into the trailer park. Innate knowledge is an important skill, and every time you indulge and take note and start to understand as you become more experienced as a player you start to realize that a lot of these spawns are common fights can get very predictable when you are on top you can already pick a spot and kill someone before they even know that you are there.
At this point in the game, each
customsgame starts at 35 minutes and we've started away here in the parking lot, the first thing we're going to do is get away from the big red flashy red piece to that bus back here to look for the east wing 310 key. This is a great key for getting your hands on a coastal room in the east wing that has spawned some really good stuff. I will do it. I go over to make sure no one has spawned in the trailer park. We're going across the street, and that's the street I'm in.
Speaking of which, when you spawn down here, make sure you don't run in that direction, because a lot of people will hit you from there. So I would run straight into camp, sometimes I can hop on this car and straight towards the roof and I usually look around and make sure nobody else is moving towards that area. First thing I do is walk past the staff or bag and quickly look for this little medicine bag here for silly words, especially in the early game, so go was worth a fortune, so that's a really good spot if you're done if we get it early do, let's try to get some ready-made kits for therapists, we'll quickly hop back on the roofs, and I'll just say don't run around with it too much, but you can get some really good angles inside the train station, and you know, inside near Big Red or when you have fights here you can see people from a good angle but obviously all these roofs are metal so they make a lot of noise so I wouldn't be walking around Here like an elephant, because you can be spotted and killed, you can also jump up in other ways.
We go to the exit of the junction and we look for another east wing 310 key in the left driver's seat of this van we have a big green crepe another big green crepe and we go away from the junction. Stay when you spawn on the other side of the map, for reference, this is your extract and it is always open, so on this side we are on the left -hand side or the west side and we will continue towards one of the most prestigious areas or one of the most dangerous areas is the big red one and we move away from these little removable X's that we're going to cover in a moment but we're going in and I'm going to show you a little cheeky parkour spot that I usually jump and check every time, when i get this spawn.
So if I'm supposed to spawn in a big red, the first thing I do is run up here and look around the trailer park to see if anyone is jumping over the garbage can or over the wall, we'll look at the camp and make sure also there is no one there to come down, you just run down the same way you came up, now we can go to the
customsoffice you may know this area from some tasks along the way of course you have to get a package from here or you have to also get a document to take to the factory for a messenger from the past.
A very infamous task, but this area has a few small spots that you can check the front flash drive for especially in the early game for skiers, which can help you in heaps. Check them for CPUs and such as well, but kick those Door, the so-called breach door, and go inside and look for the East Wing 306 keybarrel of this laptop. It's a good key right there and downstairs obviously grab your doc We also have a safe here along the way and it's a decent little check you can get some good angles from up there especially when fighting people you can look down through that window and shoot them if they are outside of the big red so i keep this key late game for the pvp and of course the safe is a decent little pool too but we can head towards the now The train station is a decent little area but be careful as there are a ton of PvP spots here, lots of spawns close together, this is a very high traffic area.
So if you show that jump don't stay up here too long and if you do throw away your backpack but you can get a really nice view of the other Ridge people running over and you can get a few really make dirty recordings but like I said don't stay up there too much and don't walk around on metal because people will hear you and will come and hunt you down and kill you as you can see to my left. I have the blue attachment, there's a filing cabinet in there but we won't cover it yet but that's a little loophole they don't really have, a few people don't know about it, believe it or not, I call it that gap or slot and allows you to get to the other side of that wall, however if you have someone there and want to get around them you can actually jump up here and get under the train to pull out a different angle during PvP, To try and confuse your enemy, there are a few different ways you can get in and around these areas so you can see if anyone is watching.
The more times you discard them as an example, you still get the move on my left parkour is pretty hard not to cover in this video. You can also climb up onto this cabin here and get some really good views all the way to the build. It is near the start of the main bridge on the west side and you can see all the way through if someone is crossing these land bridges in a very bad spot and you can easily grab them,
customsis all about throwing your enemy off by Giving him weird angles you know he wouldn't normally look at.
There are several ways to reach them. From one side of the west side to the east side of the main bridge is probably one of the safest ways because there is more cover along the way. Just avoid the scavs here in your ice, more triple stacks because there are a lot of scouts that can ruin your day pretty easily, but we're going to go to one of the most notorious places in
customsand that's the construction. Construction is a very scary place, especially for new players, but I want to walk you through some of the basics c calls for this area.
The first ones are these little breakthroughs that you go through and they're numbered from that left hand side, namely breakthrough 1 which you also breached - and breach 3 now these small breaches can be answered with a sniper scope over this building here so once you go through if you get shot be careful of that guy up there he is at the start every single raid there, bronze pocket watch or anything in that area and you get killed you know that just bring a gun or something and try to kill him so now we're going to go elbow.
The elbow isn't a very notorious area but there is a dead scab that you need to take off a key and also a duffel bag that we have. I'll probably cover that in a separate video and some of my
guides will drive past a bronze pocket watch truck, away from a frame, and we'll teach you that little jump when you want to get away from you have your pocket watch or whatever you want to get away from In this area you're actually just jumping over what I call this ninja jump and we're going to head towards hill one.
Hill one is where dreams die. There are a lot of people that like to hang out in these bushes up here so please please be careful, I can't tell how many times someone has jumped out and killed me, but you can get some really good angles, especially while building. So if you're fighting someone you can go up there and draw an angle on them, it's a really good angle to draw them on too, let's go towards the pit now. Pit is quite a dangerous area. I have a lot of PvP battles in this area, but we're not really going to be walking around this area much, basically, there's not much to show, but we're going to show you this new sniper scab that's been added recently.
Look out for this guy because a lot of people get killed by him and don't realize what's shooting at them, they think it's gamers or a hackers just understand that most of the time he's there a And we're going towards factory shacks factory shacks are part of a task here you will need this key called portable cabin key or factory zone where you have to unlock this door and go right and grab a document but for the sake of time you know we don't have a document but you do actually have a gun case but there is a cool little angle you can use and there are other ways to get up but if you use the door you can do this with any strength just jump on the rail jump to the Door and then throw your bag and you can lay down here and get some really really good angles along the drawbridge and also throughout the bus station.
This really helps especially if you're trying to fight someone or you know set up your sniper headshots for sky born shooters as we walk past these silos they will quickly show you which turret is on he spawns so please watch that spot sniper scope we're going through the port and something people don't know is if you hug really tight here don't make noise you won't hit barbed wire and they won't you coming so it's just how you approach the barbed wire if you want to get through there just hug it and make sure you don't hit it as we move away from the bus station.
We will drive to one of the first caches of this video or hidden caches. These are small hidden hideouts in the area and I'll include the map in the description below if you guys want to know where they all are, but due to time constraints we won't cover every single one of them, there's no
Customslocation more dangerous is as a three story dorm, but I'll show you anyway when we go inside. The first thing to worry about besides the players is the custom scout boss for Sharla. He and four others will be in here. Sometimes there is about 33% chance for him to spawn between either gas station and they are heavily armored and if you are not prepared they will kill you so when you go through the first door please look for him.
I had them all there at the end, they like to hang down at the very end of the first floor if we go in to look for the factory The exit key is next to this TV which is a decent little check of about 150K at the moment, but in the early game much more when we go to the second floor and still pay attention to a charla and player we have to go to this bed and we we will jump on it and we go to the left we go to dormitory 205, and the reason i recognize this space we try to teach you this spacebecause here are jackets that are really good keys like I found the key 104 in CB 14 and 105 but also the machine key that a lot of people buy after the flea market but in the first few days of clearing it's about 30,000.
So when you find these keys you know you can turn them over we also have the dormitory 204 key which is a safe and a gun cabinet where you can search for shotguns you need for the Early-game quests, and a little ATM never hurt anyone. At the same time, it's one that gets you past the fact that these keys are worth little compared to Coastal Keys. So as you complete your tasks you can hit all these key spawns. You can make a decent amount of money by pressing like dorm 2:15 for the lab arsenal key which is about 60k right now but hundred thousand in the early game you know so have keys like that.
You have a safe at the end while you check your TAS keys inside you have ammo on the bed and another safe so there are ways to make money from
customsalthough it's very dangerous if we go outside, we will only show you that on the side of the car you cannot actually access the first door or the third floor. So when you hear metal, understand that you will get from the second floor, it will help in PvP situations, as this is a very high traffic area. I'm sorry if you listen to metal. Just understand that keeping all doors closed and listening for noises is a way to win dorm room fights as we go up to the third floor I'm sorry I had to throw that in there, those are just a few little things in the area.
Be careful on the third floor, Mashaallah is welcome to perch in some of these little spots around the corner here and he's pulled a few sneaky little puffs coming my way. I've seen them all in this kitchen. So be careful as we are looking for MBSs heading towards the market space. Now the marked room is a juicy room. Some good guns, but I've heard from people and screenshots of red keycards found in document cases. I found several gun cases myself, about six. So far you can find key tools for money, and you can also find dock cases full of random keys and some really s Weet Guns, so it's worth the money, but it's a 25-use key.
The more you use him, the more he can eventually break on you, but it's definitely worth the investment that you can hit this one on top by doing the crouch tricks you're not exposed to because it's very open , but we will fall down here. I just want to teach you guys something, if you fall off the roof, wait till you take damage, if you do that in a pvp fight, make sure you pick up painkillers because you might break your leg, be So be careful when you jump down, just wait for the damage and then jump off as we head towards the X.
We will find one of the extracts, for which you will have to pay seven thousand rubles, it is a fifty-second countdown, but you do not need to be there all the time. So if you stay away from him until the last few seconds you can jump near the car and then pull out, when it pulls out it drives away and no one else can use it as we head towards the two story dorm we will find a few more safes, which are actually three safes and a two-story dorm, and a few other juicy things. The first key on our right here is the Dawnguard key the GTS key which is actually a really decent key for the money I mean I have an ammo case you have a gun rack with guns and a big black gun case you have a duffel bag, you also have a gun box here, but if we go to the end we will throw to the left Here to dormitory 110, now dormitory 110 is actually a really good key, because it has a safe, but, what else more importantly, on the left he has a fuel conditioner and flash drive spawn.
Obviously both fuel conditioners and flash drives are needed, so Fatah that helps, but quite across the room. The reason it's so good is ASCII that's dorm 114 you need for a therapist assignment but at the same time you can get some meds like sully was a pc to check for flash drives and another if you Believe it or not, but if we go to the second floor oor pay attention again because this area is a very high PvP traffic area. I've had a lot of fights here and a lot of people trying to get angles into the three story dorm.
I've had countless fights here so be careful when you press up and also keep an eye out for Rashaldir because he can spawn here. A good indicator is if you go through, if a lot of doors are open it generally means that either a new player is here or Rochelle so if you go to the second floor and see a lot of doors open it's usually a Warning sign that something is wrong. So listen again for metallic audio cues to win more dorm room fights that no one can actually access on this floor, as I showed as we head towards the construction site or the sniper scope I showed earlier, so you'll need that go all the way but it's a dorm 1 05 now again that's the key i found in the jacket just before but it's still a cheap key for a safe the safes are great because you can find a lot of items you can use for needs quests along the way so let's move on Now head towards Hill 2, this is a very busy area as there are a lot of people crowding the wall but when I come here I always look for that flash drive right next to it this travel bag.
This flash drive has actually been here a few times and especially in the early game 300k or more for a flash drive they've obviously tumbled into the white later now but these are really good things to know, especially if you're building your custom stash, can You hit that flash drive you know you can craft that little bit of extra cash if you need it, so now let's go to the gas station or for some new gas and once again we're going to look for some more keys for you might do your job but if you check that ambulance right here we are looking for the Emrick on Key which is both the TAS key and a really cute key for loot and medical supplies as I said earlier in the video Rishabha can be at the spawn gas station.
So be careful if you come across them in the front when fighting in the front lines I would suggest try to get inside and not fight them from the front because they can shoot through the windows and pull some silly angles at you. My advice is to try to lure them to the back and use the doors to try to force them to come to you so they stupidly open the door and go in, you can kill them one by one, by looking for Rashad Lee he likes to hang around these barrels so please be careful when you push along the side as you can see I'm looking through the gaps here and there does bibley rashanna be hiding where he is crouching in one spot waiting for you to come, especially if you are dominating his group. the first thing i see when you are looking was rush hour a chance for the golden tee you have to turn in here in andrade however you can find ca If you don't put it in its secure container and search its pockets you will find some things like physical bitcoins and also keycards from Labs.
His followers, on the other hand, have a chance of getting AVS Plate Carriers, which you need to find and raid and also turn in Black Stones or a Ragman quest, so these counters found in Raiden are probably the most efficient way to get them for this quest, if When we go inside, we will unlock the key to the storeroom of the gas station. This is a great key to have early on because it has two med cases which are a brilliant facility. In the early game, you got a small box with a cabinet key here. Make sure the description says the gas station manager's office key there's a couple of closet keys search that little safe A little nice cast boost that didn't hurt anyone since we're driving away from the gas station.
I'll come back and cover a few things here, but I just want to show you Hill 3 quickly. This area is often camped out and there are many angles and snipers on top of this building that can really ruin your day. So if you're fighting the scout boss from this side, I advise you try to get close, you don't want to hang around here because they can praise F-Ones all the way from the gas station and ruin your day. The ammo shack is pretty awesome. You also have a small ammo box and duffel bag, but we're approaching a military checkpoint here and this will be another unlock, but this is also a fairly high-traffic area and a lot of scabs like to hang out here.
So if you need scoville tasks awesome jumping over this barrow can be shown if you jump sideways your character will actually jump higher if you have to over here make sure you use this trick and we will will be heading towards the military checkpoint and unlocking it and checking a few things inside the military checkpoint now. We won't find much loot really, but it's really good for early game aks as well as g renades and some ammo, that rear blue rocket can spawn KUs and sometimes suppress ak74 Ubese since we passed here. We will look for key 114.
This little jacket back here is a chance for the key I showed earlier the key 114 and also Sully always checked this jacket even though it was pretty exposed because this key is great in the early game so here we go again the gas station. Just wanted to show you a few things while we're here and it's the go-shanky, now that key is worth a fortune and you'll have to turn it in when you make your way to the third seat here on the left , is the go-shanky but that's about 2.5 million right now which is ridiculous so please check that every time we get past that wall by jumping onto that pile of rubble and over that spot over here race, actually is not accessible from the other side without using the factory shortcut that we will show in a moment when we head to camp 4 we will q quickly check this small box in front of camp 4 here but if we Passing by this blue car, let's open the trunk and find all your logistic keys.
Now only the logistic key is needed for a ragman quest, so you will need this key at one point in your quest. So always check this when you move in this area. However, we will quickly move on to the factory shortcut and I will show you that this can be unlocked with a factory exit key, but this key is now a 50-use key. This is a recent change that allows you to fix your key so you can fix it before it breaks. However if you unlock it you have to use it twice to get through so every two users has time but it allows for good PvP angles and allows you to get some really nice angles on rashanna if you get her from the gas station fight off as we unlock the second door you'll just quickly know where we are if you're confused we're in front of the gas station we're going back and we'll show you how to get across freely by stepping on this blue car right here .
The trick to this, and a lot of people seem to overlook it, is that you actually go to the end and aim for the lip, see how the toilet has a lip there on the right, so try and actually miss. I know it sounds silly but if you aim for the right side there in the little lip you will actually get it every time Of course higher power will help a lot but we can go to old petrol here now. The old gas station is actually a very iconic place and actually also an excerpt. So when we come here we will check a few things like scabs obviously there are a lot of them hanging around here but you can tell the extract is open when the green flowers are here now.
Obviously this isn't the extract for me because of my spawn, but I have on the otherside spawned i could get out of here and look up this chart for every item in the game everything from the fort armor to a gun case and there on the chair you can find some really cute loot there it is too to get out just go over there and there is a little tunnel if we go back to the rubble this is where we will check the god find the tree of bestowal i call it but here is a little spoiling of the ground we can best find on the ground, and also the factory exit key has a chance to spawn right there if you don't find anything, if you're looking for something like a vest or something, if you're looking for it you can get some really cute loot.
I've seen other people pull green keycards and many other high ticket keys from the best born on the floor. This next little trick is something you don't have to do, but it's something you can do when you're about 10 power, but when you jump using the trick I showed you earlier, which is from the left jump right jump on this railing here and then aim for the lip of the train you can actually go up here and get some really really cute nooks right down to the substation lots of stuff up there dear enders and you can get some really cute nooks , especially with thermals.
So if you're fighting someone or you know someone's up there, you can get some really good angles using this spot, but we're going to go into one of the best areas in the early game and a very underrated area that I'm this call it water storage but it's now also known as a storage building, if we go in we'll see why I call it water, we're house because there's water barrels everywhere, but there's a gun case and this little rack back here, here are little shelves and my good spot ok i found car batteries here wilston cigarettes and many many other types of cigarettes and everything you will need in the early game i found condensed milk there and heaps of goodies so its a really good place , as does that big gun crate back here, which is a bit of a yes, I call it my lucky C guess, but you know that's just my little secret, we go forward here and we go right and we will unlock another cache but like I said earlier guys hidden caches easy due to time constraints I won't cover them all but if you want to know where they are you will find in the description below a map.
So we go to one of the sometimes open extracts and this is ZB 12, to tell about CB 12 is open you actually have to look for the light when the light is on then the extract is open but it catches sometimes on, and even if the lights don't let you out, don't ask me why it's Nikita's fault. Getting to the point here, we're going to show you another cheeky PvP angle and its chemical. I call them chemical because this van right here on the side or the container building is what you have to mark for a chemical task and in the back you can see some really cute silly words and metals and you are what on this one back shelf here is you c you will find more cigarettes and other miscellaneous items but this is the right placethat i used to kill a lot of people.
I love this place but if you use that forklift up or in other words use the side jump or look straight down you can actually get up here with the decent level power I think it's like five or four you can do some really really good ones Getting angles towards the substation, if you also walk along this door you can see towards the gas station and Kilrush Allah, but be careful, there is a sniper gap that will appear above you, so if you hear metal, don't do it sometimes freak out, he might just dance around while we get on the gas station.
We can get some really good angles all the way to the gas station but be careful because you are now very exposed to the substation and the rocks above With your head past the pit we are going to my favorite thing on earth, my USB van . This USB van is great for early game flash drives. If you check the face of the actual physical USB ports you'll see that one sticks out there and every now and then and it's a really good spot to start with and it's served me well in this patch. I will tell you when we go into the chimney we will check two crates why we call it two crates for that reason but there is a big green gun crate and when we go back down we can find the factory key at the very bottom check on the factory shelf edges like i said it's worth about 150,000.
We can check those cigarettes along this crate and go to the second green crepe and they're really good for arming yourself in the early game, like some nice gunsmith attachments, but the dead scab here offers some good spawns for the military one too Checkpoint key and if you search it you will get some really good cigarettes and also a chance for the factory key We go away from the crate or the chimney. We go to one of the main pulls that pass this small tube. I'm going to show you one of the hidden caches like I said, but if you want the map, remember in the description below under As we head towards one of the main pullouts, CB 11 is.
Now, CB 11 is a really good spot. Be careful going downstairs. Sometimes people wait here, believe it or not, but it's a really decent pullout and always open reference' where we are, we're between ZB 11 and Admin Gate and we're doing the loop-de-loop while we're behind going around the military checkpoint and we're not really going to cover that back area there because there's not much loot but we're going towards what I call the m4 or repair shop as we go into a repair shop. This is the forklift room, as some people call it On the inch key, this key is a pretty decent little thing because you can get a decent loop, and it helps in PvP situations when you need to pull different angles, like toward that crate jump and kill someone if you think they're outside while we're working On ours it's actually a two part key with two unlocks for the same key, the second door here can be unlocked with the same key head.
It's more the same. We've got a jacket here, we've got a big gun crate down here and obviously more angles to tug on a little more now A neat trick is if you hop on that railing you can get a really good look at Chemical, especially if you use thermals you can go down that rail and see all the way to the train you can jump over Go to the other side, that little ramp up there, away from that side. We'll be checking the rear area for more attachments and also some really decent cigarette brut stuff like wheel stands and obviously you can see our Kalai bolts randomly and various loot and also weapon attachments there's a 110 key in that little red box too, but if we go around the back of a military checkpoint we're going to punch our way through the barbed wire here and for the sake of time I've speeded that up alot but we never go into the new
customsarea all the way up to the infamous substation, now there's a lot of PvP out here .
I've had so many fights in this area but it has a few variants and it is The Laboratory Arsenal Key The Laboratory Arsenal key is a really good key to get my hands on as I have said about 60 to 80 K at the moment which is a decent move I also hid a large black gun case between those two pillars. Beware, but it's a very exposed place to browse. I would be on my stomach We walk away from the substation and down to the gas station then we show you this one little parkour trick and watch out for these rocks, a lot of people like to sit on the left side we can actually drive through the wall and the gap here toward the gas station and likewise back to the other side so you don't really have to go all the way around when we go along the wall.
I'm going to show you another little dirty spot here with another hidden cache, but you can actually jump along that wall past the fence and to refer people we're right up front with new gas at the moment. Hey guys that's it for this
