  1. Upcoming Glock

    I think a Glock 19 would be the best addition for the next handgun, aside from maybe a more affordable older snub nose revolver. I only say this because not every gun in tarkov should be a beast. Sometime you get what you get and it might be a outdated Russian revolver or DB shotgun.
  2. Hello all! Over the last several months of playing this game I've established a small community in Tarkov. With the growth of this community I've taken to assisting the newer players of Tarkov and begun my own Sherpa/tutor program (Unofficial). We've played with and tutored just under 100 members in our discord. This program is focused on both helping the newer players tackle the intense learning curve of Tarkov, and also to work with the more experienced players and allow them to assist in teaching concepts such as group dynamics, the economy, player tendencies, and other major areas of focus. NOTE: This is NOT an official Sherpa program established by BSG. Official Sherpa programs have not begun yet but have been mentioned as being intended in the future. Should the official Sherpa applications come out, I have been planning on applying for some time now and this program will also serve as a base of experience in tutoring EFT. ie: I like helping people and this unofficial program also helps me develop the skills I'll want and need to potentially become a Sherpa in the future If you would like to participate you can find me here https://discord.gg/TDs8kkB If you want to help me with the growing player base in Tarkov and you consider yourself the following 1) An experienced player in Tarkov (Strong base of EFT knowledge and group dynamics) 2) A good mentor/teacher/educator. Particularly with 1 on 1 tutoring 3) A leader capable of demonstrating and utilizing effective communication skills to coordinate and organize groups 4) Lastly, a player with a desire to participate and help new players (+Patience) Then join my discord and send me a message In the future I will edit this and add the link to my Youtube. In it will contain some basic tutorial videos that will help get you started. But until then stop by and say hello! And if you've gotten this far, Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I wish you all luck in Tarkov.

    Thank you! glad to hear
  6. Hello all! Seeing as there has been the recent sale and there are always new players joining the Tarkov community, I thought I'd make a mention of a new program in my small community. If there are any newer players are looking for some help in Escape From Tarkov I would be more than willing to help you out. I have a public discord with a community of about a dozen active users. If you're looking for a discord to use, feel free to check us out and do some raids with us. If you're a newer player and are looking for a group to play with, or want to learn 1 on 1 with one of our "Sherpas" (Unofficial) then stop by and we would love to play with you. We are always looking for people to play with and hope to see you guys around. Discord https://discord.gg/TDs8kkB In game name - Armani Steam - 76561198131515044

    Haven't followed through with joining that quite yet so I can't speak firsthand. I've heard it was a pain. Maybe when beta releases and more people are around I'll check it out. Either way, just looking to make friends.

    Nah, Just creating a smaller community. Mine is as easy to get into as clicking the link. Last I checked, Tarkov official discord you need emissary permission. Also, the primary purpose of it is to help the new players that have reached out to me from my posts. Just convenient and available.

    Sorry, lost power for awhile. Thanks to those of you that stopped in while I was out. Feel free to invite anyone you want to it, just send them the link.
  10. Free Channel

    Hello all! Just would like to offer a discord channel to all interested EFT players that would like to use it. There are channels for groups that want to play together or meet other players. In addition there are channels for those that are looking to find a group, or are new and are looking for help. Me and a few others are often around if you want to play or have questions. Just stop by and say hello and come hangout and play Tarkov with us. Many of you have your own channels with Discord and Teamspeak, but you're certainly welcome to use mine or just stop in. The more the merrier, would be great to have this become a congregation of sorts for players. Especially for those that are looking for people to play with or need help. It is currently a new chat channel so it might not have many people at first, but others may always stop in. https://discord.gg/TDs8kkB -Armani
  11. Weapon Modding Ideas

    What are your thoughts on potentially adding items such as lubricants and cleaning kits that could "repair" a weapon slightly. Or potentially even giving a weapon a slight stat buff (a few points) to gun stats such as accuracy or ergonomics. This buff could be added on top of fully repaired weapons and would decrease rapidly with weapon use. Or this buff could be used on damaged guns and the chances of it jamming will be decreased by a few percent until the gun has gone through a few dozen rounds of ammo (at which point the buff is removed and the jam rate depends on how damaged the weapon is). Maybe even different ammunition's could deteriorate this buff faster or slower depending on the quality of it. Old corrosive Russian made ammo would remove the buff much quicker than newer or NATO made ammunition. To increase the importance of weapon maintenance maybe scav weapons wouldn't always start at 100%. Now I'd like to propose another idea all together. What if a weapons "health" was the collective health of all of its parts. This model could work similarly to how player health works in-game. Therefore if you find a firearm that suits your liking and use any saved up weapons parts to replace damaged parts on the gun you could bring the gun to better condition. Maybe a stock that's at half health/condition only contributes half of its recoil reduction. Weapon parts could work like the guns in that they can be repaired by traders but will lose health with each repair (depending on the trader used). And maybe weapon parts can't be sold to certain traders unless they are in good condition (exception to fence). A lot of the code/mechanics for this are already in EFT. (weapon damage rate and repair/sell/replace) So far EFT has an incredible inventory system. Something that out preforms so many games out there, especially other alphas. Any one of these ideas could further contribute to the depth of realism and ingenuity this game has. Note: I understand that some of these proposed mechanics go deeper than many of the other mechanics currently implemented. However, this is just food for thought for the players to read.
  12. Looking for friends!

    Always good to see new people coming in! If you want to team up I can help you out a bit, I love helping new players. I'm looking for someone to duo with as well. Steam name Armani (white heisenburg) US east coast time
