  1. Updated Ballistics Chart

    Believe it or not, the wiki is pretty accurate right now as far as 5.56 goes. I tested them myself. I don't know what happened, but 995 has been nerfed and 255 does the most damage to fort. It's completely backwards. Meanwhile, the Tarkov ballistics blog is mostly blank with the old charts gone. 995 only does 9 points of armor damage to 6B43. 255 does like 14. Even though 995 has a tungsten core and 255 is made specifically for busting in to pieces on hard material...
  2. ...your organization skills are like:
  3. ''To the guy at ...'' Compilation Thread

    Are you talking about the hallway? Were you a Scav?
  4. Elcan 1x/4x top mount question.

    A bit unrelated, but the ReapIR thermal scope also seems to have a second mount for attaching it to an NVG harness. I think in the description it even mentions it being used as a monocular for thermal vision similar to night vision. Unfortunately it doesn't work with the NVG mount/adapters.. yet.
  5. i want to die

    You may have been disconnected from the server for most of the raid and a lot of it didn't actually happen as far as the servers were concerned. FPS 1 in console will show if you have packets in = 0 which I believe means the server isn't responding.
  6. In short, the round was designed specifically to NOT penetrate steel, so it could be used in training facilities without the risk of rounds going through barriers and such. It fragments upon contact I believe. Otherwise the specifications call for the round to be on par with M855 in lethality. I don't trust the Tarkov wiki. I've never used Mk. 255.
  7. No sound (bug?), getting killed

    Most of those situations are invisible scavs. They spawn invisible and their shots are soundless to everyone, but they are there serverside. If you start taking silent damage, stay away from all known Scav spawns and work your way to extraction. I made it out alive last time as the Scav shooting me must have had a shotgun and I was wearing armor.
  8. SCAV's and their unstoppable grenades...

    I've had the exact opposite recently. Scav throws grenade, I watch it land in front of me, I try to run and get stuck on something only a couple feet away from the grenade as it explodes; but then miraculously remain unscathed! Well, besides my ears ringing and my vision blurring horridly of course. But then instantly die 0.03 seconds after peeking from an insane 100ft headshot from that Scav's toz/SKS/Vepr.
  9. Not a bad setup, eh?
  10. Prapor rare sale item?

    I don't know about that, but I saw a stripped black AK74N for a blackrock rig right after the wipe that subsequently vanished too.
  11. Next big update or wipe

    If you're talking about your starting gear, why don't you just profile reset?
  12. Extraction Impossible

    Some extraction points have conditions and aren't guaranteed (usually [as PMC at least] denoted by a ??:??:?? by their name). I believe what you describe as the red/white countdowns are simply: White: Normal raid timer Red: Countdown for your current extraction that you're standing at The red is just the amount of time it takes you to extract at that particular extraction point. And yes, if you hit an extraction point that takes 10 seconds to extract from and your raid is at 9 seconds, you won't make it.
  13. I wouldn't doubt it. I was in a raid a couple days ago that went to negatives on the timer after 0:00. It hit -4:00 then stopped for a few minutes, then finally ended after like 6 or 7 minutes past 0:00. Lol
  14. Mission TOZ.

    Thanks. There you go! Shoot for the limbs!
