  1. Civilian and milsurp guns should always be cheaply available to new players. Players who grinded to level 4 reputation with all the traders have been spoiled in the past being able to effortlessly kill lower tier players while decked out like DEVGRU/VDV and kill players weakly armed with pistols or scav guns like the MP-153 with ease. Making it to a high level in this game should not mean lower players are now a non threat. Granted a higher level will make it easier make it out alive, but it shouldn't be nearly impossible to take out a player with a 10~30 level difference. For one the Mosin Nagant should be a cheap gun. If you can't kill a player with a WW1 surplus rifle while wearing head to toe body armor and using a gun with the MSRP of a used car you shouldn't be demanding lower ranked players shouldn't have access to weapons that can kill you when your skill let you down. Lastly there should be some cheap but effective armor allowed at lvl one for the head and chest. The UNTAR PASGT helmet and vest combo seem fare. The bright colors and weight encumbrance offset their benefits for lower players well.

    There is an American and German company that do make reproductions: http://smgguns.com/?page_id=99 https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2012/04/26/fg-42-tactical-take-a-deep-breath/ However you should keep weapons thread in the containment thread.

    Mosin Fixes

    The mosin should stay a low tier weapon. High tier players shouldn't be invulnerable to low tier players. Even with high loot you should still fear being killed off by some chump with a low tier gun at distance.

    You're wrong on a lot of things. For one Mosin Nagants and other milsurp guns are no longer being imported and likely will never be imported in the numbers they once were in the United States. Sure if you are Canadian you can still get cheap Mosin Nagants in the 100 CAD range but those days are over in the US. Seriously, look at gunbroker and armslist entries. Furthermore, go to any pawn store that sells firearms and you'll see Arisakas, Enfields, Springfields and other once "common" rifles now butchered into crappy "sporter" rifles worth a modicum of their original value. Secondly any serious gun collector isn't going to use a crappy Wal-mart airsoft tier scope that's going to lose it's zero after a few firings. If you want a precision rifle, because as you said these milsurp guns aren't too great, you would start out with something halfway decent like a Remington 700 or tikka T3 and not a garbage rod mosin and get a good scope like a Leupold Mk 4. Lastly, yes it is bubba'ing a Nagant buy drilling and tapping a scope mount on it, because for one it isn't worth the time and effort, and it destroy's it original condition and looks like garbage. Mosin Nagants are good starter rifles and milsurp collcetion filler. Personally I collect pre-Import ban era guns like Daewoos and old Norinco guns like the Type 86s and firearms that were banned during the AWB. Also I'm not a Russia fanboy buy virtue not wanting to sporterize old guns. ducking up a milsurp Kar 98k or M1 Garand is just as stupid.

    Attitudes like that are why Kar 98s, Lee Enfields, SKS rifles to name a few are so artificially high in price now. There are plenty of cheap burner guns to add your flimsy walmart crap optics on without bubba'ing a milsurp gun. Also surplus guns like the Mosin Nagant are no longer being imported and have have more than doubled in price. It's no longer 2010. It's not a "$100 dollar rifle" and hasn't been for a long time.

    I concur. Why do people put all that tacky poo on vintage guns. That scope looks like walmart airsoft tier trash.
  7. It's already a EULA violation, champ. People who violate the EULA should be banned. Being a twich E-begger shouldn't grant you immunity from breaking the rules. https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/legal/user_license_agreement_en.html
  8. If I create a twich TV account, when can I be granted exceptions to rules like not using macros? I just want to know how can I also cheat in this game with the blessing of the devs? Here is an example of the streamer privileges I too would also like to employ with the dev's consent. For those of you who don't know EFT will not punish the streamer below in order to please the twitch celebrities kind of like a restaurant owner scared of yelp reviewers.

    Gold editon STANAGs for Tarkov?

    But seriously my unit just received these new "enhanced STANAGs" for our M4s and was wondering if we can see this variant in game. Game wise they shouldn't be different than a normal STANAG in game but should allow PMCs to customize their guns better like the AKM/AK74's diverse magazine lineup.

    Argument for UN Forces NPCs

    With Scavs and soon cultists being in game as NPC enemies I believe UNFOR would make a good non player faction. The G3 and FAL are confirmed and such weapons could be introduced via UN forces being separated from higher authority and resorting to banditry to survive. Adding in UN peacekeepers would allow more western guns in game like the FAMAS, L1A1/FAL and FNC and even East Asian guns like the QBZ 95, K2 and Type 89 as well as western equipment like ALICE load bearing vests and backpacks. If players could spawn in as UN in lieu of Scavs it would allow players on their "free" run to communicate in English with the word wheel.

    When are you guys going to the US to try out American guns?

    Licences do not cost money. Some companies want the free publicity as some people see X gun then want to buy it IRL if they can. Sage ordinance EBR chassis for example are probably only popular due to their presence in video games. Magpul seems to tell any company or movie to use their IP as much as they want.
  13. An annoying feature when someone walks up you, your PMC tilts their gun up to avoid clipping. Professional militaries and assuming PMCs train to counter someone rushing you. One technique I have learned is to poke the barrel at a adversary attempting to rush you. This allows you to keep some distance and still use deadly force. Here are some images I found on the internet that describe this well.

    IRL 60 round AK 74 magazines

    Any fellow gun owners tracking these 60 rnd AK74 magazines? Are they reliable, worth picking up as an oddity for your collection? Or is this some junk? Note these are different than the Izhmash prototypes that go for 1200 USD in the US. https://www.circle10ak.com/product/pufgun-ak-74-60-round-magazine-5-45x39mm-black/

    New Masks and Possibly more Cosmetics?

    Raybans are better than Okleys. No other brand of sunglasses can make you look like a Middle Eastern dictator when wearing a beret in uniform.
