Most successfull gear setup so far (surprisingly..?)

Recommended Posts

I've had runs with armor and fully modded rifles, died horribly, rinse, repeat, absolutely horrible raids time after time. Then I had a scav run with THAT gun. That broken ass gun, and I made it out with some gear and just decided to keep running with it, and guess what..? Those runs were my most successfull raids so far x'D Granted, I haven't played very much (don't have time/energy to play a lot), but I was at roughly 1/20 success-rate until I started running with this. This has gotten me modded MP5SD's, modded Saigas, armor, finished a few tasks and so on. Killed and looted a few quite heavily geared guys with this. Isn't this game just wonderful? ^_^

Posting this just as a fun fact and maybe as an inspirational. Doesn't matter how bad things get for you if you're on a bad luck streak, these things actually happen <3 Keep at it!!

When you go in raid like that you play more for fun and relaxed knowing that if you die you will not lose much

Up until a few days ago I was going into raids with only a hatchet. Started going factory with pistols and I’m constantly getting veprs and shotguns. Just now I got a factory key on my scav run and I’ve only tried farming it for 30 minutes

I don't just mean the AKM Vepr tho, I mean that exact rifle, Doesn't even have a stock on it, or a dust cover ;P Recoil is horrible and it sways all over the place when I aim, but It gets me kills and loot :D

Thanks mate! :D

Maybe so, but now I have gotten emotionally attached to the bastard! I would be so sad if I lost it, even if it's missing a few parts and feels like fireing cannonballs with a BB gun :P

You will get it back from insurance :) It looks so horrible that players will throw it away for any shotgun or saiga from other corpses :)

VERY true, I did not think of that, haha! xD When someone actually manages to kill me holding this, I will happily picture their disappointment when they loot my corpse x'D

Some of my scav runs with pistols have ended better than full kit runs. It's a topsy-turvy world we live in when you spend a day in Tarkov.

My best run is a AKS74U run with 3M armor and no helmet...but on average the best runs are hatchets somehow as long as I pick up a gun. Somehow bringing my own guns means I spawned closed to fully geared squad...

Well right now ps is a bullet for all types. Hp is highly adviced for factory runs. US version is totaly useless. There is bs bullet but very rare. And t45 tracer is almost same as ps

I shot a fort guy 3 times and he fell.

Fist shot hit his armor, second shot penetrated his helmet, third shot went high. Sometimes the recoil works in your favor :-)

US ammo is great because it does not make any sound in flight. When using a suppressor, you can actually hear the bullet hitting the flesh of your enemy.

Anyone who ever used AS VAL knows that sound.

But its bullet drop is so low that even the as val is has better bullet drop. My advice is hp. No body cares much about the bullet flight sound on factory. And in customs / woods / shoreline us bullet will get you killed. You have to know the bullet drop u gonna mess with. It needs practice. Thats my advice but try it your way and get experience. You will see what i mean.

Whats the 3 and 104 damage columns? what one do we look at for most damage?

It is damages at 3m to 103m.

 

3M is close range damages

103 is mid to long range damages.

Thanks mate, is there blogs for all the ammo types? i see there is some more links on that page you linked but thats not all the ammo in the game?

Tke it the higher % on the drop off the quicker the bullet starts to drop?

Val ammo used to be bugged before patch because it never slowed down. That made the bullet drop less than it should be.

After the patch, it seems to be have been fixed and it matches the trajectory of 5.45US and 7.62 US very well.

When I play solo, I want to be as stealthy as possible. And shooting supersonic rounds is a dead giveaway. The very moment I hear the bullet cracks near me, I pop a painkiller and run.

US ammo requires more skill to use, because you actually need to account for bullet drop, but I had whole teams confused not knowing where I am. I took the first guy out and the other were spinning around searching for me. I bet they were screaming hacker in VOIP. It's very satisfying. And many times cheaper than using 9x39mm SP-5.
