Acquaintance is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.


Well hello there! I’ve been watching you for a long time - I’ve heard about your good and bad deeds. In our difficult time it is hard to remain the same person as you were before - you have to choose the side. So here I am on the side of those who clean our land from various scum, the ones who drag us further into the dark abyss. If you would like to join, I will be glad of any help. Mechanic let me know about your track record, says one can rely on you. Given the circumstances I have no more will power to stay away from what is happening around us. At first, I thought that it would be best to sit out in the wilderness in my reserve. But after what the local bandits started doing, after all these murders and robberies, after what they did to our city... In short, I will definitely need your services. And first of all, I need you to get me some supplies. The hermit's lifestyle really depleted my provisions.



Thank you. Food in our time is a hard-to-get supply, it's hard to survive without it. Okay, we can talk about business then, when you have time. Come visit me from time to time, boy.

The Provisions required for this quest have to be found in raid. These items can be commonly found in many maps such as Reserve, Interchange, and Shoreline.


Food can be most easily found in the kitchen wing of the black bishop building. In the locked caged rooms in the underground bunker are many loose food item spawns and Ration supply crates. These crates spawn a large amount of food. The number of supply crates in each room is written in red on the map below, as well as the location of the kitchen being circled.

  • Shoreline

    Lots of food items can be found scattered throughout the admin/theatre building at the resort.

  • Interchange

    There is a grocery store called Goshan (red on the map) packed with food. Check all the shelving to find it. A flashlight will be helpful for all the dark corners.

  • Woods

    Packs can spawn at the USEC Camp frequently as well as the camp at the south-east of the lake.
