Shady Business is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.


There is this shady guy in Tarkov. Folks call him Skier, the person is really shady, I’m sure that he doesn’t disdain the crime, I would have to watch him. They say he's looking for the flash drives, but I don't know what's on them. Knowing this type I bet there's something rakish. I’d like to know it for sure. I don’t know what kind of flash drives is he looking for, just bring me a few pieces, and then we'll figure it out. The Mechanic will help us understand what is there.

  • The Flash Drive sometimes spawns inside of the tent near the logging camp on Woods and in dorm room 110 (locked) on the bed on Customs. It can also be found plugged into the front of PC blocks.
  • It's also a good idea to search for Flash Drives on Interchange, as it has many computers that may spawn USBs. The Oli, Idea and Goshan offices are good places to look, containing several PCs each.
  • They commonly spawn in drawers as well
  • The quest The Huntsman Path - Evil Watchman rewards 2 flash drives as a quest reward, which is an option for players who are unable to find flash drives elsewhere.
  • The easiest way to get Secure Flash drives is to craft them on Intelligence Center level 2 (Requires Mechanic Level 3). They will have the "found in raid" mark, being suitable for the quest completion.
