The Lab is a location in Escape from Tarkov. It is the sixth location that was added to the game.


Underground laboratory complex TerraGroup Labs is a secret object right under the center of Tarkov. Officially, this research center does not exist and, based on data scraps, is engaged in R&D, testing and simulation projects in chemistry, physics, biology, and high-tech areas.



All items a player loses in this location will be lost. The insurance purchased from any traders will fail, and no items will be recovered. When a player dies, the trader will send a mail that they sent people to recover the items, but later the player receives mail stating that the location could not be found, his men don't go there, or worse, that their men never returned.


Whenever an event of high importance happens inside The Lab, an announcement will be triggered. There is an announcement for every extraction besides the Ventilation shaft and the Sewage conduit.

The announcement for the parking extraction can be disabled using the Yellow keycard.

Tagged and Cursed

Unlike other maps in Tarkov, PMCs are not tagged and cursed at the start of a raid on Labs when deploying with no gear or weapons.
