The Tarkov Shooter - Part 1 is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.


Here you are. Only you and Sniper can survive that long in the field, raid after raid, it looks like. He was recently looking for a reliable guy, who can be entrusted with a task and won't let him down. He says the best way to test a person for his task is to check their skills with bolt-action rifles. He's a serious man, so I think he needs a fighter for something important. What do you think, can I recommend you? Try yourself in as the "Tarkov Shooter". if you pass all Sniper's tests, I’ll arrange you a contact with him. So, here's the first task he prepared: we need to test your accuracy with iron sights from a medium distance, let's say 40 meters.



So, do you feel like Zaitsev yet? Sniper is satisfied with the first test results and has already prepared the next task.


To do this task, grab a bolt-action rifle and do not attach any scopes or sights. Use only the iron sights. Factory is not recommended for this quest as there are not many places where you can effectively engage at 40m or further. Only Scavs count towards this quest, not PMCs. Woods, Shoreline, and Customs are good maps because of the sniper Scavs that can be spotted from a far distance.


The end quote refers to Vasily Zaitsev, a famous Soviet sniper during World War II.
