    War Stories 2

    Story time again. Wrapping up the Shootout Picnic quest, decided to low- kit run. Scav vest, random Grach, and a handful of mags. Spawn near the brick building by the train tracks. Rush to the spine and spot someone running. I see they're running with the one handed item, so either a pistol or a melee. I switch to melee and try to seem low-threat while I approach them. If I die, I lose all of 8K Rubles in gear and insurance, might as well make a friend. Just past the spine, in the woods before the sawmill, I get his attention and wiggle. I see him start to aim, and I duck to the side. I wiggle again, and he wiggles back. After we get to the log stacks, I get his attention one more time and show him me drawing a handgun. He just nods. We're on an even playing field, and we both know it. As we push into the sawmill yard, I spot a scav, line up a shot, and pop one off as my unknown does the same. The scav retreats behind cover in typical AI fashion. My ally pushes up a log pile and I push around to the left. We open up on the scav, and I deal the final blow (Identified in the post-action report.) I signal to my comrade to take the gear, since I heard him take a hit. He'll need the survivability granted by the saiga more than I will. We push into sawmill building and check the boxes. After sorting through some basic, low-value loot we hear gunshots. After brief eye contact, we push out left and right sides of the building, him taking the front, me taking the back. I open up on a scav just behind the building and take one to the head. I go down. Shorter story here, but nice to see people willing to work together. GG sir, GG.

    20g slug

    The TOZ normally fires slugs. IRL, it's basically the most common munition. I'd love a 20g slug.

    War Stories 2

    Bringing back this thread in this format, in this location, because the old one seems to have been destroyed. Keep the showing off to a minimum. This is a thread for stories that embody Tarkov in the eyes of the viewer. As with the first one, I'll start. Finally got enough knives together to get the MP5 from Peacekeeper. Decided to run it on factory (SMG, factory. Made sense). Grabbed a vest, some ammo and mags. Soft body armor, comtacs. I was going in to have fun, not get kills. Spawn by forklift in breach room. Check forklift spawn, and I see a tomahawk, a USEC, standing in forklift room, looking at the back wall. I pop off a few rounds instinctively, tagging him once out of three shots. He runs to cover and I push. I reach where he stood, right beside the staircase coming from the tunnels. I see him behind a forklift wiggling like mad and I line up a shot, aiming center mass, full auto selected. I hold for a second, recollecting every time I've been in his shoes and been just shot down. I lower my firearm and wiggle back. I know I am taking a risk. There's no denying it. I have no helmet, and tomahawks have a tendency to be aggressive and accurate, especially on factory. I hear footsteps by concrete shack coming out of ramp and spot another tomahawk. This one a BEAR running to tower. I let him be. He'll either die or get loot and become a threat. Either way, I'll deal with him as he comes at me. I push to bridge over the catwalks, but as I approach cat-hole, I hear scav chatter and footsteps on the other side. I check the gun. Full auto, full mag, and peek, dumping the better half of a magazine unto the Scav's chest and legs, then watch him drop. Another USEC comes around from '86, running. He dives for cover when he spots me. I shout "Stop" and "Hold Fire!" when he peeks back out to see if I've run off, myself wiggling the whole time. He loots most of the body, but I spot a keiver helmet that the USEC left behind. I secure container it. The comtacs will be more likely to save me. I hear the equipped USEC escape safely, and I feel better off knowing he got out. I push through cat-hole to bridge and checked locked room quickly. Nothing but trash. I back to bridge and close the door behind me. A few tense seconds pass by as I wait to hear something. Then I do. Slow but not sneaking footsteps in pit. I take a vantage point and watch the stairs coming out. A tomahawk exits and holds near the top, peering over to see if he can spot anything. As he tries to leave I see a scav walking up '86 ramp and shout stop. The tomahawk stops just out of the AI's line of sight as the AI turns and walks around far side of silos. I wiggle at the USEC and he wiggles back. I run to gantry with the tomahawk following below me. When we meet at gantry, I identify him as the USEC I tagged earlier, spotting the bullet wound on his chest and hearing him complain about being hit. I chuckle to myself and think "Small map, isn't it?" then cover him as he gets into position to loot. After some consideration, I toss him the helmet from earlier. he'll need it more than me. He grabs it and starts looting boxes. Some searching and a single headshot on an idle guard scav later, he secure container's the helmet as I hear footsteps coming up on us, accompanied by the sound of Russian chatter. Before I can do anything the tomahawk peeks around '86 forklift and gunshots ring out. I rush to the aid of my unknown comrade as he backs away to cover. I round the corner to see a scavenger in Fort armor with a rifle (I sadly know not the kind) and open fire, killing him with a burst to the head. I begin to search the body, my intention being grab the fort and drop the soft armor for my ally, but hear more gunfire and take a hit to my vest. I look up and see a scavenger with a shotgun unloading on my position. I return fire, but ultimately loose the firefight. To the tomahawks I helped, put the gear to good use, and GG. Bit long of a story, but I felt like sharing it.

    Creating a character in text forum RPG

    As an avid RPG player, this has me excited! What is the ETA on this?

    KEEP looted gains in OFFLINE mode plz

    Doing this will RUIN the economy and the skill curve. I will be the first to admit that this game is challenging and I am sub par (Intentionally ignoring the people who say "mad cuz bad" or similar) But the equipment gap is required for this game to be playable as it is intended to be. Earlier on, in the alpha, offline saved equipment, so none of the traders had money or goods. Seeing fence have all of 10 individual items and 200 rubles is just bad. When they fixed it, and I mean fixed, everything leveled out. The equipment gap is frustrating, I understand that, but this topic has been talked about many, many times before now. Edit: Full release will not have offline.

    First impressions

    Get a laser sight, but the design of the game is immersion. Having that center alignment would kill it for me. You just gotta watch your health, and your meds. This is just the nature of the beast. (Been there man, it sucks.) Get a squad, preferably of experienced players. They can, and probably will, teach you the ropes. I've been playing since first wave alpha, and I'm still learning from other people. Share knowledge. Plus, when you get a squad you work with often, life just gets easier. The way it's set up is to be minimalistic in appearance, but deep in its content.

    Question about refunds/refundability?

    In the agreement you make when purchasing the game, you can read that there are no refund opportunities. Sorry that it isn't for you man.

    Inconsistent team spawns

    I agree with Dr_Waifu. It's sketchy with how people spawn together, even on larger maps. Some times, on factory when I'm playing with a total group of 2-5, we'll all spawn inside of each other. Other raids it's Forklifts and Offline, or just peppered around the map. When it works, it works well. I need to beef up my PC because I like to spawn late in groups for some reason, but it'll still drop me near party members. When it doesn't work though, it's a "Welcome to the jungle" scenario. You cannot know what lies between you and your comrades in arms, and that can easily get you killed. This ^ doesn't make sense to me. The entire theme of the game being teamwork relies on spawning near each other. A lot can happen in the time it takes to get from pit to anywhere, and not spawning in close proximity to each other is a death sentence for at least one player about 1 time out of four. Maybe there's something I don't get, but having people spawn apart from fellow team members, even on small maps like factory, is CRITICAL to any game that involves teamwork and stresses realism, like this one.

    Interactive Sound Cue Trap options

    This is a good idea. It could be done from the context menu of a right click on a bottle in the inventory, and it'd create the patch of glass at the feet of the player who caused it. (Still waiting for Molotovs tho)
