List of Changes

PVE ZONE offline single player

  • For all players with access to PVE ZONE, raids for solo players will be run on the local PC.
  • The game experience, as well as the operation of in-game mechanics, is completely identical to online play.
  • For group raids, raids as a Scav, and raids on Streets of Tarkov, the game will utilize the servers.

Wishlist mechanics

  • Players can add an item to one of several pre-created Wishlist categories. Items added to Wishlist are displayed in a separate section of the Handbook.
  • Wishlist items have unique visual differences. When obtaining such items through various methods, the player will receive a corresponding notification. Players can customize the frequency of notifications in the game settings.
  • Added the ability to automatically add items needed for Hideout to Wishlist. The available options for this feature can be configured in the game settings.
  • The Wishlist persists after wipes. You can clear the list manually in the game settings.

In-game feedback surveys

  • Added a community feedback survey system within the game, available at the "Surveys" tab in the bottom menu.
  • Completing surveys helps improve the quality of the game based on community feedback.
  • Players can earn in-game rewards for completing surveys.

AI adjustments in PvE mode

  • AI PMCs now pick up items, loot crates and bodies, trying to choose more valuable loot.
  • They can also pick up weapons and equipment, and if they find better equipment, they replace theirs with it.
  • AI PMCs can travel all over the location. They build routes to points of possible loot concentration. Bots move in tactical formation. When they reach the destination point, they collect loot, and then can wait for enemies for some time, setting up ambushes.
  • AI PMCs now extract from the location if they have collected enough loot or enough time has passed since the start of the raid.
  • AI PMCs now sprint more often when moving in open terrain.
  • AI PMC level on beginner Ground Zero will be limited to level 20.
  • All AI will now react to the enemy if information about them came from any nearby bot. For example, if you are spotted by a bot and they yell, all bots regardless of faction will hear it and decide to move in your direction, take cover or perform other actions.
  • AI Scavs will now travel all over the location and search for valuable loot. Scavs are less picky about loot quality than AI PMCs. Scavs move between potential loot destinations in tactical formation if they are traveling in a group.
  • This is the first iteration of AI improvements within PvE mode. In future updates, we also plan to refine the tactical behavior of AI, as well as the interaction system between AI of different factions.
  • In future updates, the necessary mechanics will be moved to PvP mode.

  • Head, Forearm, Shoulder, Calf and Thigh hitboxes now have a threshold value of 20
  • The damage and penetration power of the bullet degrades when it penetrates the body hitbox, meaning that the next body hitbox will receive reduced damage:

Armor penetration rework

    • Effective durability for damaged armor decreases with the loss of its durability points
    • Many cartridges have a small starting variation in armor penetration

New content

New Location: Ground Zero

    The Ground Zero location, situated in the city center of Tarkov, has been added to the game. Location features a large number of infrastructure facilities of the modern city: banks, cafes, restaurants, stores, pharmacies, and so on. All this is towered by the skyscrapers of Tarkov. In the very center of the location is the main Russian branch office of TerraGroup, where the original conflict began. The most violent clashes between USEC PMC operatives and OMON took place on the facility's premises.
  • The location is intended for beginner players from level 1 to 20;
  • PMCs of higher levels (20+) will not be able to access the location;
  • Scavs will have access to the location at any player level;
  • New starter quests have been added to the location;

New Boss - Kollontay

    A new boss Kollontay has been added to Streets of Tarkov. He is a former officer of the MVD (Ministry of Internal Affairs), during his service in law enforcement he had a reputation as a vile man, whose behavior was sometimes feared by his coworkers. During his work, he often resorted to his favorite method of interrogation - a rubber baton, as well as other non-statutory pressure on someone who was not to his liking. Thanks to his physical strength and bold temperament, after the events of the TerraGroup scandal, he formed a gang and began to do what he himself was recently supposed to combat - looting and banditry. However, even before the conflict, he often provided protection to local "businessmen". For example, his good relations with Kaban are well-known. Kollontay has a small number of guards, prefers to stay in one position and occasionally patrols his territory. If he feels he has the upper hand, he may switch to his police baton. He lives in the area around Klimov Shopping Mall and the Tarkov Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Kaban’s new guards

    Boss Kaban is joined by his closest associates, Basmach and Gus. Since the time of Kaban's active involvement in business, they have served as his loyal associates, solving many delicate issues for him. Their loyal service and their exuberant character made them his most trusted confidants. In their spare time, these two "dandies" liked to dress up at Ragman's place and organize illegal street races through the streets of Tarkov in tuned cars from Kaban's dealership. Basmach and Gus always stay close to Kaban and charge into battle for him. They prefer their unique clothes to their battle gear, though there are occasional exceptions. Basmach has a special fondness for machetes, and Gus for crowbars.

  • The durability of body armor has been converted to the durability of installed armor;

      • Vaulting over an obstacle. For example, jumping over a small fence to take a shortcut.

Each of these types has different animations for different heights, different parameters of stamina and arm stamina consumption, and different action speeds, depending on the negative effects;

    During a sprint, you can jump over obstacles without the goal of climbing them (Vaulting); If vaulting is performed while walking, the loudness of such actions will be noticeably lower than jumping and sprinting; For the convenience of overcoming obstacles an option has been added to the game settings: "Vaulting over medium obstacles", where you can choose "Auto" or "Hotkey". If you select "Auto", your character will climb over medium and low height obstacles by himself. If you select "Hotkey" you will need to press the "Jump" key to initiate vaulting, but this way you can control the character's actions more precisely; The character now stops if he hits a wall while walking or sprinting.

  • Players can name each preset, select the appropriate loading preset, view its contents, and compare it to other loading presets;
  • The magazine loading preset is divided into three blocks:
    • "Top" - How many and which cartridges will be at the top of the magazine/belt, i.e. which cartridges will be first;
    • "Loop" - How many and which cartridges will be cycled in the magazine/belt;
    • "Bottom" - How many and which cartridges will be at the bottom of the magazine/belt, i.e. which cartridges will be last.
  • You can create up to 30 unique magazine loading presets, with a limit of 5 presets per caliber.

Streets of Tarkov expansion

New boss Kaban

    He once had a small legal business in Tarkov, but was not afraid to use criminal methods of money acquisition. After the general evacuation he remained in the city, and his gang has grown. His size allows him to fire various heavy machine guns without resting the gun, but at the same time Kaban cannot afford to be mobile and therefore either stays in position or moves slowly from point to point during combat. He has a large number of well-armed guards, some of whom are former military men who have organized a strong defense for him. The boss dwells in the area of the car repair shop on "Streets of Tarkov". The area is heavily defended, entrances are fortified with stationary machine guns and AGS, the paths are mined, and there are snipers on the roof of the car service center. Kaban uses a custom rig to store machine gun boxes, wears body armor under his clothes, and has unquestionable authority among his guards. Scavs nearby help the boss with defense and will engage in combat for Kaban.

Kit presets

    Added the ability to save a gear preset and quickly equip it. The player can name the preset, select the one he wants to equip, see its contents, weight, and compare it with other equipment sets; The screen of the selected equipment set is divided into two tabs: "Equipment" which will display all available gear slots; "Pouches" which displays the contents of the rigs, pockets, backpack and secured container; The selected equipment set is assembled from matching items in the player's stash. If the player does not have enough items in the stash to assemble the kit, the missing items can be purchased from merchants/the flea market; After character creation, 15 basic sets of equipment are available to the player; The player can create up to 50 custom gear sets.

Random container spawn

    Containers will now spawn at random points. The number of spawn points for containers has been increased on all locations. Large wooden crates, some TerraGroup crates, large cash registers and file cabinets will now always spawn at their respective locations.

Sidearm quick swap

    When the holstered weapon hotkey is pressed twice (key 1 by default), the character will swap weapons quicker. This action consumes arm stamina, and if it is insufficient, the weapon equipped in the hands will tremble. Upon training weapon mastering and corresponding with the weapon type skill the amount of arm stamina consumed on quick swapping will decrease, and the speed of action will increase.

Improvements to peaceful behavior of bots

  • Added routes for looting containers by Scavs on the "Streets of Tarkov" location;
  • The barrel of the bots' weapons oscillates up and down slightly during peaceful walking. Peaceful routes of bots now have slight deviations from a straight line between points, mimicking the player's movement. During combat or in case of danger, bots return to "ready" mode;
  • Reduced reloading speed of low difficulty bots;
  • Bots can no longer rotate instantly. Now, to rotate by a significant angle while prone, the bot assumes a sitting position and continues firing;
  • Bots now search corpses and take weapons, rigs, backpacks, whatever contents they like from them. If a bot has a backpack and a rig, it will drop the backpack and rig next to the corpse. Contents taken by bots are not refundable by insurance;
  • Bots can share an item with a player playing as a scav by calling out to them;
  • Improved visibility of bots at dusk. Now it corresponds more correctly to the change of light level. Flashlight still gives better visibility at this time of day;
  • Corrected spawn time when playing as a scav on all maps.

Bot groups

    The AI scav groups system has been improved. Now a group of scavs that will operate as a team will spawn at a certain chance. They are going to be better organized in combat and are essentially small gangs.

Commands to bots

    When playing as scav, new commands to bots are available to the player. The chance that a bot will execute a command depends on its reputation with the Fence. All commands have a cooldown. "Help". When this command is used, all bots with a certain chance and in a significant radius will go to the player and engage in combat with the enemy on; "Spread out". With a certain chance the bots in the reasonable radius will take cover and spread out over the area; "Take cover". With a certain chance, the bot next to the player will take the nearest cover; "Quiet." With a certain chance, the bots in the reasonable radius will stop talking and start listening; "Stop". With a certain chance, the bot next to the player will stop for a short time, look at the player, and then continue moving; Now the command "Follow" when playing as scav can be given not only with a gesture, but also with the phrase "Follow me".


  • The user interface of the trade, quests, and Ragman services screens has been redesigned;
  • The player can now quickly equip or replace an item with any of the available items in the stash via a drop-down menu by clicking on character slot;
  • The FPS meter no longer overlaps the raid timer;
  • Double-clicking on consumables automatically uses the item. In terms of functionality, double-clicking is similar to the "Use" option in the context menu of the item;
  • You can turn on the tactical device or helmet-mounted lights by pressing the H key. You can switch the modes of tactical devices by pressing the CTRL + H key combination;
  • The list of available mods for OpsCore helmet rails as well as 6B47 helmet has been expanded;
  • When holding the 4-0 hotkeys when using the first aid kit and other medical supplies, a drop-down list of body parts to treat will now appear. When using the first aid kit, the list shows all of the character's wounds. When using other medical items, only those body parts that can be healed with the item are shown. To activate it, you need to set the hotkey mode to "release";
  • Added new images to the loading screens.

Gun Stand

    A new module "Weapon Stand" has been added to the Hideout. The stand has 3 levels of pumping. Each level can hold a certain number of weapons (Level 1 - 108 cells, Level 2 - 132 cells, Level 3 - 182 cells.) Only weapons with all critical components can be placed on the shelves of the Weapon Stand.

Quick sale of scav's gear

    A "Sell Equipment" button has been added to scav's gear transfer screen. The player can sell all the equipment he has after extracting as a scav, including currency that Fence doesn't normally buy.

Improved display of the crafting process

  • Added animation and a color indication to the icon of the module where the crafting is in progress;

    Streets of Tarkov
      Since the establishment of the special economic zone in Norvinsk region, the city of Tarkov has become the center of its development and a key location on the map, lavishly fueled by international investment. In a short time, the city grew into a large metropolis with all the respective infrastructure. One of the main investors was TerraGroup, officially a biotechnology R&D company with offices in 18 countries around the world. However, its list of interests extends much wider than claimed, and its appetite keeps growing. Most of the major enterprises in Tarkov and Norvinsk Region were in one way or another connected to this organization. The city is home to its main office, laboratories, workshops of industrial enterprises and a branch of the USEC private military company (hired by TerraGroup for security).
      The city of Tarkov is located in northwest Russia and is part of the Norvinsk Region. It is located on the right bank of the Gulf of Finland, in the south of the Karelian Isthmus. The population of once an actively developing city was nearly one million people. In the mid-sixties of the 20th century, there were large instrumentation and electronic defense companies built before the city, which served as the basis for the development of ZATO (closed administrative-territorial formation). The ZATO status was lifted in 1994.
      After a huge corruption scandal associated with TerraGroup, when it became clear that the situation would not settle down, the company's management gave an order to USEC operators to not allow even the government and law enforcement officials to access the facilities. PMC operatives fulfilled the task, while virtually the entire senior and middle management of TerraGroup left the city. After this, a mass evacuation of all company resources began. Chaos erupted in the city. To counter the USEC PMCs who were still defending the property of TerraGroup, a newly created PMC BEAR, officially unrelated to the government, but rumored to have a direct protectorate of the Russian authorities, was sent to the city.
      Active fighting broke out between the two PMCs, using all kinds of weaponry. All this time, the population was actively evacuated by the city’s own resources, as well as with the help of the Russian Armed Forces and the UN peacekeeping contingent. In a short time, the chaos that was happening made the city remain frozen in the state in which its inhabitants had left it. The entire official contingent was withdrawn.Only the marginalized and criminal elements that wanted to make a profit and pillage the city decided to stay. Tarkov was cordoned off, and entering and leaving the city became impossible. A significant number of BEAR and USEC operatives have lost contact with their command, and now they have to find their own way out of Tarkov.
      This update adds a part of the city of Tarkov, located at the intersection of Primorsky Avenue and Klimov Street. This part of the location contains an abandoned factory, Pinewood Hotel, news agency building, Concordia residential complex, car dealership, Terracot Business Center, cinema, Sparzha supermarket, and other objects of urban infrastructure. This is the first part of the work on the city and later the location will be expanded.

    Repair kits and enhancements

    • Weapons, body armor, and plate carriers can now receive a standard or rare improvement when repaired via repair kits;
    • The ability to enhance items opens at level 10 of the corresponding skill. For weapons it is Weapon Maintenance, for armor it is Light Armor and Heavy Armor;
    • Rare enhancements can only be applied at the elite level of the corresponding skill;
    • The chance and strength of a normal standard enhancement depends on the level of the corresponding skill;
    • For body armor and plate carriers, the enhancement reduces the damage a character receives;
    • Weapons can have two kinds of enhancements at the same time. The first is a decrease in malfunction chance, and the second is an accuracy increase;
    • The enhancement is effective within a certain range of the item's technical condition (or armor points) and will be removed in case of another repair;
    • The enhancement and its value affect the value of the item - the selling price, insurance, Flea Market fee;
    • The Intelligence skill now affects the amount of repair points that will be spent on repairs;
    • Now the value of the removed max durability of an item when repairing via repair kits depends on the corresponding skill. For weapons it is Weapon Maintenance, for armor it is Light Armor and Heavy Armor. For other items with durability points it is Intelligence.


    • Added new skill - Light Armor
        The skill progression reduces the penalty to mobility, wear of armor when repairing, and damage from melee weapons when struck in the armor.
    • Added new skill - Heavy Armor
        The skill progression reduces the penalty to mobility, blunt damage to parts covered by the armor, and wear of armor when repairing.
    • Reworked the Charisma skill
        This skill's progression affects the price of insurance, paid extracts, replacement of operational tasks, price of the Scav Box, and Therapist's healing services.

          By checking "Disable water and energy consumption", the player will not lose energy and hydration over time, except from consuming items. With zero energy and hydration, there will be no exhaustion or dehydration negative effects.
      • Bot configuration
          Option to adjust the amount (including full absence) and difficulty of bots from the solo offline mode is now available in co-op.
      • Spawn point selection options
          Players now have three options for selecting a spawn point
          • All in one place - all players in a group will appear together in the center of the map
          • As online - all players in the group will spawn at the edges of the map, each at their own position
          • 2 teams - players in the group will be divided into two teams (according to the order in which they enter the group) and spawned as different teams in two different parts of the map
      • Weather condition options
          It is now possible to fine-tune the weather. Adjustment options include:
          • Clouds
          • Fog
          • Rain
          • Wind
      • Time configuration
          Added the ability to set a specific time of day for the raid. When selecting the desired value, the time flow will be stopped and will always correspond to the selected hour. It is also possible to leave the time as in an online raid.

      This is the first stage of improving the cooperative mode features. Later, the functionality will be refined, some of the planned improvements can already be seen in the interface, such as Time flow, Health configuration, Disabled overload, and others.


      Added two new upgrade levels for the shooting range. The new levels allow you to set up a variety of shooting targets, including moving targets, and use the training program to improve your shooting accuracy.

    Added 5 new stimulants

    • Obdolbos 2
        A syringe with a homemade drug, developed by Sanitar. A new version of the old classic. Looks like TerraGroup Labs' experiments did not end with the closure of TerraGroup Labs itself.
    • SJ12 TGLabs
        Developed for the operatives of special units. Slows down some functions of the body and they temporarily start working with energy regeneration. The drug forces the release of vasopressin in the hypothalamus, which leads to a change in the work of the adrenal glands, lowers body temperature and increases perception. After the end of the action, there is usually a jump in temperature to 40-42 degrees as a compensation for the incorrect functioning of the body systems.
    • Perfotoran (Blue Blood)
        A blood substitute with the function of oxygen transfer, used as a powerful antidote capable of relieving toxins, poisons, and radiation damage. It was developed by Soviet scientists in the 1980s. It is a submicron emulsion based on PFO compounds. Once in the blood, it temporarily speeds up the metabolism and regenerates tissues. Negatively affects health in case of overdose or rejection.
    • Trimadol
        An opioid synthetic analgesic developed for special forces operatives. It has a central and spinal cord action (promotes opening of K+ and Ca2+ channels, causes hyperpolarization of membranes and inhibits conduction of pain impulses). In addition to the analgesic effect, it increases combat characteristics. Overdose leads to exhaustion of the body after the effects wear off.
    • PNB (Product 16)
        A combat stimulant. Developed by TerraGroup Labs, labeled PNB. Allows a short-term activation of the inner muscles, bringing them into a state of hypertonicity, which in turn reduces the received damage. At the same time there is an active synthesis of proteins for accelerated tissue regeneration. Used for the expansion of the organism abilities at the key moment of the combat. Allowed for use by Special Forces. Has some side effects.

  • Mip Streaming has been reworked and can now be enabled in the Graphics settings. 2 new options were added in the Graphic settings:
    • Mip Streaming disk request limit: The lower the value, the slower the speed of loading textures to a given quality. If the value is increased, textures will load faster, while also increasing the load on the hard drive. On slow drives, this can lead to a large queue of drive operations and the opposite effect — textures will start loading slower.
    • Buffer size: The amount of RAM that is reserved for textures loading to a given quality. The larger the amount is, the higher the peak disk load and the faster the loading of all the necessary textures will be.
  • Optimized the network buffer to reduce network latency for other players

This update wiped player levels and stashes

New additions

Expanded the Lighthouse location - added the ability to visit the island where the lighthouse is located, and also added new interiors inside the water treatment plant facility complex. Added three new bosses - the commanders of the ex-USEC PMC group known as Rogues. The leader of the gang is Knight, who coordinates the actions of the entire group and specializes in assault operations. Birdeye maintains distance between him and the enemy, setting up ambushes and choosing positions with a clear line of sight to the area. Big Pipe prefers the grenade launcher and serves the role of massive firepower in battle and always rushes towards the enemy to reach combat distance. Bosses maintain contact with each other and with the other Rogues, however they don’t stick together and instead keep their positioning distances. When an enemy is detected by any of the bosses or Rogues, information on enemy location is transmitted to everyone by radio, and the bosses prepare for battle, taking up tactical positions for engagement.

Bosses help each other, use all available weapons, and are hostile to everyone: players of any faction, Scavs, and Raiders. They don't communicate with the rest of the bosses and Fence, so they attack any enemy immediately. Killing them does not affect the player's reputation.

The bosses' habitats are Lighthouse, Shoreline, Woods, and Customs. They do not stay in one place and instead wander through these locations all the time. If the bosses have moved to one of the maps, they will be absent on the others. There is no timetable for their movement and no one knows what the bosses are guided by when changing their location.

  • Added offline cooperative game mode. This game mode is only available to players who purchased the Edge of Darkness pre-order edition.
  • Added the “Co-op mode” checkbox on the game mode selection screen. In co-op mode, all settings for bots, bosses, time and weather are identical to online raids. Progress in co-op raids is not saved, and the gear taken into such raids won’t be lost upon death;
  • The “Start as group” checkbox allows for all players in the group to spawn together in the center of the location. With the checkbox unticked, all players will spawn like in the online mode.
  • The number of players in a group for the co-op mode has been increased and depends on the maximum number of players in the selected location.
  • The number of co-op servers may be limited under heavy loads. In this case, on the group gathering screen, you will see a message saying “Attention! High load on practice mode servers”. This message means that finding a server for a co-op raid may take longer than usual.
  • Reworked the movement animations:
  • Updated the animations for character movement, jumps and stances, added new breathing animations, melee attack animations, weapon drawing/holstering.
  • Added sprint animations that change depending on weapon type (rifle, pistol, melee, grenade) and its length.
  • Added rotations and tilts of the body when moving and sprinting. The lower the speed/position of the player, the lower the tilt of the body during turns, and vice versa.
  • Implemented weapon operations during the sprint, in particular the ability to switch to another weapon, switch fire modes, check the magazine/chamber, folding and unfolding, inspection, and reloading.
  • Fixed third-person weapon twisting while prone when lying on the side.
  • Added daily tasks for Player Scavs. The tasks will be given out by Fence once a day, and will be available after building the Intelligence Center in the Hideout, regardless of the PMC character level.
  • Added a new type of daily tasks – searching for items from a category such as food, medicine, weapons, etc. All items will need to be found in one raid.
  • Added slots for special items in the PMC inventory, in which you can put a compass and a rangefinder, a wi-fi camera, a marker, and other special items. Items in special slots are not lost upon death. They also cannot be looted from bodies. To activate an item from a special slot, you need to assign a key on the quick access panel (1-9).
  • Added a flare gun and single-shot reactive flare rounds with lighting and flare ammo. Shooting red signal flares will call in a plane with an airdrop to fly to the nearest possible location.
  • Updated the Airdrop mechanics - added 4 types of containers with unique contents (weapons, medicine, supplies, general purpose). Added countermeasure flares when flying in and dropping the container. Updated the plane flying trajectories and decreased the engine sound volume.
  • Added tasks for the new Lighthouse territories
  • Updated the base clothing models for USEC and BEAR PMCs
  • Added new head models for USEC and BEAR PMCs

Added new weapons and customization for them:

  • Benelli M3 Super 90 shotgun
  • Accuracy International AXMC sniper rifle
  • MP-18 single-shot rifle
  • RD-704 assault rifle
  • SAG AK carbine
  • HK G36 assault rifle
  • MGL M32A1 revolver grenade launcher
  • Reworked the animations for MP-133 and MP9
  • Added a new model, animations, and modifications for SV-98
  • Added new equipment and items
  • Changed the bonuses for the Perception skill - now, the hearing radius increases by 0.3% per level, up until 15% for the max level. Before this change, the hearing radius increased by 0.7% and up to 35%.
  • Changed the inertia speed and force when leaning
  • Added new outfits for both PMC factions
  • Added new crafting recipes in the Hideout
  • Reworked the Elite Metabolism skill effect - now, with 0 hydration and energy, you will not receive any thirst and hunger damage, but still receive other negative effects. Before this change, there were no negative *effects at all.
  • Reworked the Elite Strength skill effect - now, weapons equipped on sling, on back, and in the holster become weightless. All other equipment and item weight in chest rigs, backpacks, pouches, and secured containers is *counted normally. Before this change, all equipment and weapons were weightless.

Graphical improvements

AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution (FSR) - an image scaling technology in modern 3D games that allows you to increase performance with minimal loss in the quality of the final image. FSR is an analogue of the DLSS technology and is supported by all AMD graphics cards from the RX400 series and newer, as well as NVIDIA 1000 series cards and newer. The FSR option is only available for Full HD resolutions (1920x1080) and higher. The Performance mode is only available for 4K Ultra HD resolutions (3840x2160) and higher.

Temporarily disabled the ability to enable Mip Streaming in the graphics settings. We are currently reworking this function and will re-enable it in the nearest updates. Updated the NVidia Reflex version. Reworked laser sights for all tactical devices: with IR mode enabled, the lasers and flashlights will not be visible since they are designed for use with NVGs. Also, the intensity and brightness of standard non-IR lasers has been increased. Sounds:

  • Nvidia DLSS
    • Nvidia DLSS 2.3.1 has been added to the game.
    • DLSS is developed to increase frame rate during high GPU usage. If the game already runs on your PC at a high frame rate, then your graphics card's frame rendering time may be faster than the DLSS execution time. In this case, DLSS is not needed because it will not increase the frame rate. However, if the game is heavy on the graphics card (FPS is below 60fps), then DLSS will provide an optimal performance boost. In this case, you can increase your graphics settings to get the most out of DLSS.
    • DLSS works only with Nvidia graphics cards with the RTX technology
    • DLSS will give an FPS boost only if your graphics card worked under 97-100% usage before DLSS;
    • If the GPU doesn’t work with high usage, you can increase it by selecting higher graphics settings, and then enabling DLSS;
    • DLSS works best at high resolutions, we recommend using it with monitors with a 2560x1440 resolution and higher.
  • Auxiliary tools used in some crafting recipes will return back to stash after production completion;

This update wiped player levels and stashes

Key changes

  1. Added the Lighthouse location. The lighthouse at Cape Dalniy was an important strategic object on the way to Tarkov. During Contract Wars, it was the main entry point for USEC units and served as their base of operations. After the conflict, Scavs took a fancy to this place, until the old owners returned, who decided to stay in Tarkov and establish their own order.
    This is the first iteration of this location. In the future, the territory will be expanded and will include new Bosses.

  2. The Lighthouse location will feature a new AI type - ex-USEC operatives, also called Rogues. They are a gang of former PMCs who previously operated together. They are well-armed, well trained, and use coordinated combat tactics. They have similar interests to the Raiders’ ones, but have united around a shared military past.
    Rogue USECs have taken over the water treatment plant, and entrenched there. Stationary machine guns and grenade launchers are set up along the perimeter, with several fighters patrolling around the clock. When an enemy is detected in a sector of fire or there is a suspicion of enemy presence, the guards open suppressive fire, trying to prevent the enemy from approaching their territory.
    These new bots are lenient towards the USEC PMC faction. They will not open fire upon a USEC player unless the player tries to enter their territory. If the player gets too close, he will receive an order to leave immediately and will be shot if not compliant. Also, if a USEC player is in a group with a BEAR PMC, both of them will be considered hostile and attacked on sight without a warning.
    If a USEC player engages in a fight with the Rogues, he will be considered a traitor and will be treated as a hostile for the next several raids.

  3. Inertia has been added to the game for more realistic movement and actions. Inertia manifests itself in the following situations:
    • walking and strafing
    • sprinting
    • sharp turns during sprinting
    • landing after jumping or falling from a height
    • leaning and sidestepping
    The inertial force depends on the weight of equipment and the Strength skill level. The more your equipment weighs and the lower the Strength skill level is:
    • the longer it takes to accelerate at the start of movement (walk, strafe, sprint);
    • the longer it takes to slow down after stopping movement (walk, strafe, sprint);
    • the longer it takes to slow down and accelerate when changing movement direction to the opposite one;
    • the more movement speed decreases during sharp turns while sprinting;
    • the stronger and longer movement speed decreases when landing after jumping or falling from a height;
    • the slower it takes to lean, return to normal position from leaning, and sidestep.
    The inertial force increases starting from 0 kg of equipment weight for characters with Strength level 0, and from 10 kg for characters with the Elite Strength level. The inertial force reaches maximum with 70 kg of equipment weight for characters with Strength level 0, and with 80 kg for characters with the Elite Strength level.

  4. Expanded crouching and getting up mechanics. Now the duration of these actions depends on the degree of weight overload. Getting up drains stamina, the amount of spent stamina depends on the degree of overload and the number of changed stance bars (how high the character stood up).

  5. Expanded the weapon malfunctions mechanics. Along with misfires, weapons can now suffer the following malfunctions:
    • Failure to eject - after firing, the cartridge is jammed by the bolt and is partially visible in the ejection port. The source of this problem is, first of all, the technical condition of the weapon, and less often - the overheating of the weapon and the cartridge characteristics.
    • Failure to feed - after firing, there are issues with the new cartridge feed (round gets stuck in the mechanisms of the weapon, cartridge case, etc.). The main source of this problem is the weapon magazine, especially the high capacity and drum magazines. Other sources: cartridge characteristics, weapon overheating, and technical condition of the weapon.
    • Jammed bolt - after firing, the bolt gets jammed. Jamming can be of two types: normal and hard. The only difference is the duration of the troubleshooting. The cause of the jammed bolt can only be overheating of the weapon or its technical condition. Hard jamming occurs only at low values of the technical condition of the weapon (5% and below).
    Malfunctions cannot occur in new weapons (with durability more than 93%), except malfunctions caused by overheating.
    Some types of weapons cannot have certain malfunctions due to their design or mechanism of operation.
    Now, in order to fix the malfunction, you need to determine its type first. To do this, you need to inspect the malfunctioning weapon via the weapon inspection hotkey.
    Characters with the Elite level of the Troubleshooting skill will automatically detect the type of malfunction as soon as it occurs, without having to inspect the weapon.
    Now, after events and actions related to malfunctions (malfunction occurrence, determining the type of a malfunction, fixing a malfunction), a colored notification occurs and a sound signal is played. These notifications and sounds can be disabled in the game settings by unchecking the “Malfunction notifications” box.

  6. Weapon overheating and related effects have been added to the game.
    Weapons heat up after each shot. The heating rate for each shot depends on the cartridge, barrel and other heating-related elements of the weapon (receivers, muzzle devices, handguards, etc.).
    In contrast to heating, the weapon is constantly cooling down. The cooling rate also depends on the barrel and other cooling-related elements of the weapon (receivers, muzzle devices, handguards, etc.).
    The degree of overheating can be monitored by the visual state of the barrel and muzzle devices. You can distinguish four stages of overheating in ascending order. Each stage of overheating adds new negative effects.
    • slight overheating - the weapon is heated, but there is no reddening of the barrel and muzzle devices. Effects: heating of the barrel, muzzle devices, and handguard is visible in thermal scopes, possible mirage (heat haze) from the barrel and muzzle devices.
    • medium overheating - the weapon is heated, reddening of the barrel and muzzle devices is visible. Effects: weapon’s accuracy decreases, malfunction chance increases, wear increases, and the weapon’s maximum durability is reduced during firing.
    • severe overheating - the weapon is very hot, the barrel and muzzle devices are sizzling hot. Effects: weapon’s rate of fire changes, possible cooking-off chance.
    • maximum overheating - when this level is reached, a malfunction occurs - the bolt gets jammed.

  7. Improved the mechanics of external ammo ballistics. Now, when calculating the flight trajectory and energy, the initial speed, bullet weight, bullet diameter, its shape and ballistic coefficient are taken into account. Previously, only the initial velocity and bullet weight were taken into account.

    With this, it became possible to achieve maximum correspondence with the real life data. Also, the loss of all types of damage, depending on the energy of the bullet at a distance, and the increase in damage and penetration of the bullet from the change in bullet velocity have been corrected. For example, for 5.45x39 at a distance of 150 meters, the drop in damage was about 20%, but when changing the barrel for a longer one, thus increasing the velocity, the damage and penetrative abilities also increase. However, it’s worth understanding that for some ammunition there is no data in open sources, or they are incomplete. Such ammunition will be adjusted as the necessary data is found.

  8. Adjusted the recoil mechanics when shooting:
    • reduced the automatic recoil compensation when firing long bursts
    • decreased the recoil reduction bonuses from skills
    • general refinements and improvements in the weapon recoil system

  9. VOIP - added voice communication functionality. To enable it, you need to go to the sound settings and check the "Enable VOIP" box.
    This functionality is designed for coordination and the ability to negotiate.
    Remember that using VOIP inappropriately can ruin the experience for you and other players.
    Insults, playing music, clogging the air, and other improper behavior when using VOIP can lead to both the blocking of its functionality and the banning of the game account.
    • VOIP works only in-raid and only in the Push-to-talk mode.
    • Players cannot talk for more than 15 seconds consecutively. This means that every 20 seconds in a raid, you can only talk for 15 seconds, regardless of whether it’s consecutive or not.
    • Pressing the Push-to-talk button too often will trigger a short-term auto-block.
    • You can send reports on inappropriate VOIP usage. To do this, go to the gesture menu and press the report button while the other player is talking or was talking 2 seconds ago. You cannot report the members of your group.
    • The audibility of the voice depends on the distance of the speaker, as well as on all other sound modifiers: room partitions, floors, walls, active headphones, lowered visor, etc.
    • Scavs can pay attention to players talking.
    • VOIP can be quickly disabled from the gesture menu or via the hotkey.
    • The Push-to-talk hotkey can be reassigned in control settings.

  10. Expanded the Operational Tasks
    • Added the description variety to all types of operational tasks.
    • Added the completed operational tasks statistics to the player stats screen.
    • Added the “exit through the specific extract” condition for the “exit the location” type tasks.

  11. Added the ability to partially use different types of food and drinks.
    • Only the duration of the effect changes from the amount consumed. The strength and delay before the start of the buff does not change.
    • All buffs stack only up to the original buff’s value.
    • Negative buffs also stack only up to their original value.
    • Negative buffs take skills into account (in particular, the Metabolism skill, which cuts the duration of negative effects up to 50%).
    • Negative buffs take immunity at the maximum Metabolism skill level into account.

  12. Added new items:
    • New weapons
    • New weapon parts
    • 4 new hand grenades (including impact grenades)
    • New equipment
    • New barter items
    • New keys
    • New storage cases (Injector case and Keycard holder)

This update wiped player levels and stashes

  • New scav boss Tagilla. Killa’s brother. He’s chosen “Factory” as a place of his own and actively exercises his past sports and combat experience. When in close combat he may switch to his favorite weapon - a sledgehammer. When someone gets hit by it, the best case scenario would be disorientation and broken bones, but usually it will cause inevitable death. The boss can set ambushes, open suppressive fire, and breach if needed.
  • First iteration of weapon malfunctions and technical deteriorating
  • You can now have a misfire on almost every gun in the game
  • Misfire can be resolved in different ways. Not only via the “Resolve” hotkey (Shift+T by default), but also by any bolt related manipulations
  • We reworked the technical condition of the guns and their deterioration from firing. Certain ammunition and weapon mods will affect the deterioration speed. We added a new stat in the inspector menu called “Durability burn” which will show that.
  • Different ammo now has increased or decreased chances of misfires.
  • Technical condition of weapon influences on base accuracy, offset of the center point of impact and general misfire chance.
  • We also added NVIDIA Reflex support. And decreased ingame input lag.
  • Fence reputation. Being the representation of Scav karma. Now players can lose reputation by killing non-hostile scavs and gain it by helping scavs and scav bosses to kill their enemy. You can also gain Fence reputation by using “a friendly scav” exfil or by using car exfil.
  • What Fence reputation level will affect:
    • Player-scav cooldown, scavbox “craft” time, amount of exfils for the player-scav, car extract fee, player-scav kit, and the prices when selling items to Fence.
    • The higher Fence reputation is - the more often AI-scavs will agree to help player-scav and respond to his commands (Follow, hold position). With very low reputation AI scavs will attack player-scav. With very high levels of reputation AI-scavs will help by attacking player-scavs’ enemies, and bosses will be considered allies.
    • Players will be able to purchase uninsured items lost by other players by reaching Fence’s max loyalty level.
  • Sorting table - additional expandable space, which will be of a great help when organizing the stash.
  • Sorting table is not supposed to be used for storage, but only as a temporary buffer zone. It will be available only when out of raid and it has no size limitations.
    • You will be able to open the sorting table by clicking the icon in the bottom of the stash.
    • You can quickly put items on the sorting table by pressing Shift + left mouse click hotkey combination. This hotkey will work only when the sorting table is opened.

The distance does not depend on the sight installed and the way it is mounted on the gun: on the receiver, on the handguard, etc. The change affects mechanical and collimator sights. Including those used in hybrid sights.

This update wiped player levels and stashes


  • Basic tutorial
  • Loading and unloading ammo rounds now require time
  • Now, the character doesn't initially know the number of cartridges in the magazine. Check the magazine to see the ammo remaining. Check precision depends on the Mag Drills skill. A full description of the expected behavior can be found here
  • Time-consuming loading/unloading of ammo
  • Loading/unloading of ammo into the magazine does not happen instantly. The time required to load/unload one cartridge may vary depending on the magazine and the level of the new skill, Mag drills.
  • Time is spent on loading and unloading ammo in the raid only, in the menu the procedures stay the same as before.
  • Loading and unloading can only be done with inventory open. If you close it or switch tabs, loading or unloading is interrupted. The cartridges that were already loaded into the mag, stay in it (and vice versa in case of unloading).
  • Only one magazine can be loaded or unloaded simultaneously.
  • The Info window displays the loading/unloading and mag check speed bonus if it is not 0.
  • If you've started loading an empty mag, or unloading a full one, the precise number of rounds is displayed.
  • Checking mags, hidden precise number of cartridges in the magazine
  • By default, it is unknown how many cartridges are in the mag, if it is not examined (hereinafter referred to as "Unknown/Checked"). Mag counter displays an unknown number of cartridges. For example: (?/30)
  • Check accuracy is determined by new "Mag Drills" skill.
  • The magazine can be checked either by animation - Alt+T or through the interface by Right-clicking and selecting Check magazine.
  • If you checked the number on the 0 skill level, then it returns "~empty" - "<1/2" - "~1/2" - ">1/2" - "~full". As skill level 1 an approximate number will be shown. On level 2 - the precise amount of ammo will be provided.
  • Full and empty mags are considered to be checked.
  • All the magazines you take into the raid are checked automatically.
  • Loading/unloading a checked mag doesn't change the state, it remains checked.
  • After firing, the number of cartridges in the magazine become unknown.
  • Ammo check precision now depends on the Mag Drills skill, not on Weapon Mastering.
  • Outside of the raid, the number of cartridges is always displayed precisely.
  • If you have dropped a checked mag and picked it back up, it remains checked. If someone picked it up and dropped it again, it becomes unknown to you.

Checking the chamber

  • The chamber also requires checking. Only by animation using the key binding Shift + T.
  • If you load the cartridge into an unknown chamber, it automatically becomes checked.
  • If the shot was fired from a checked mag (first shot), the chamber remains checked. Otherwise, it becomes unknown as well.
  • New skill Mag Drills:
  • Speeds up ammo loading
  • Speeds up ammo unloading
  • Speeds up magazine checks in inventory
  • Elite levels allow you to automatically check the mag when you move it in inventory, and make loading even faster.
