Introduction is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.


Mercenary, come here, I've been waiting for you. Just a couple of hours ago, my old friend Jaeger got in touch with me and informed me that he had quite useful information for me. The package with the information I need is encrypted and is located in the Priozersk Natural Reserve area. Where exactly - Jaeger did not specify, but he left a clue “Look where the hunter would wait for his prey.” Bring me this package and I'll introduce you to Jaeger, he'll definitely have work for you.


  • Must be level 2 to start this quest.



Do you have it? Good job. Well, I think you're worthy to get in contact with Jaeger. He might have plenty of work for you.

Encrypted message icon.png Encrypted message 1 Handover item Yes This quest item can only be found if the quest is active.
When picked up, this item is transferred to the player's quest item inventory.
If the player fails to extract with this item, they will lose it.

Your task for this quest is to retrieve a message at Jaegers hunting stand and return it to Mechanic.

The message is a white paper below the hunting stand, partially hidden under a fallen makeshift wooden ladder. The hunting stand is located in the eastern half of the map, very close to the crashed plane.

Once you have retrieved the message, you must extract from the location and hand over it to Mechanic. This will unlock Jaeger as a trader and quest giver.
