Quests, both player-given and dynamically generated, are intended to be a large part of Escape from Tarkov.

Some require you to pick stuff up for certain traders, while others require you to kill other operators or mark vehicles and specific places. Quests are the fastest way of gaining EXP. Completing one will often reward you with experience points, trader reputation, money, valuable loot, rare containers, and unlock the purchase of new items.

Quest items

Some items only spawn if the respective quest is active. These items fall in the quest items category and cannot be used, sold or discarded.

  • Quest items are guaranteed to spawn client-side, so each player in a raid with the same quest active can pick it up.
  • When picked up, quest items are transferred to the player's quest item inventory. If the player fails to extract with a quest item, they will lose it.
    To prevent losing quest items, it is strongly recommended to turn them in before starting another raid or transferring them to the Quest item special stash in the "Quest items" tab of the "Tasks" tab if you do not want to continue the quest in the next raid (e.g. during Delivery from the past).
  • While quest items are required to be found in raid as there is no other way to obtain them, the player does not have to avoid the Run Through status.
