US Dev Escort Event Organizational Information

Recommended Posts

Hello Escapers!

Are you ready for our first NA/US Escape From Tarkov Event? Because we are! If you are potentially participating, make sure to read and understand everything mentioned here to ensure a smooth event.

Today we are here to give all of you a brief outline on how the event will be held, some guidelines and framework to help you understand your role, how the event will play out and organizational information.

On to the details!

Event Description

Three High Value Targets (Dev Team) must be extracted from Tarkov, carrying valuable equipment, money and gear which will be used as a payment to their three hired escorting PMC's upon successful arrival to the extraction area. Local Scavs have received word of this extract-mission, and have made their way to intercept and try to collect the valuable equipment they are carrying. Rumor has it that the Contract for this Extraction Mission was top priority for the PMC's involved and is quite the lucrative contract, however details are confidential but rumor has it that they will make their path through safer areas where SCAV are less to be seen.

Event Time

Raids BEGIN:

  • 03h00/3am MSK (Moscow Time)
  • 17h00/5pm Pacific Standard Time (West Coast US)
  • 18h00/6pm Mountain Daylight Time (West Central US)
  • 19h00/7pm Central Daylight Time (East Central US)
  • 20h00/8pm Eastern Standard Time (East Coast US)

N.B: Be aware that the places will be given to those that come early. This will start an hour before the set starting time. As soon as the timer hits 0 is when everyone is ready and the first raid will begin. So you must come early if you want to ensure that you will take place.

Team Compositions

  • 3 PMC Players will escort 3 HVT's to the Extract Zone in Woods. (Six Players)

The PMC's Escorting the HVT's have full freedom with their personal choice of weaponry, body armor and select goodies but must be heavly geard to get the job done. As your HVT's will be passing off their backpack loaded with goodies at the extract, be sure to leave space to pick up the backpack (Do not bring backpacks)!

The High Value Targets (Dev Team) will be armed with a Basic Makarov only for personal defense. HVT's will not be carrying military grade weaponry on their person (but perhaps in their bag of goodies).

  • Scav Team (12 Players)

12 Scav's will be tasked with intercepting and stealing the goods from the PMC Escorts and HVTs. Scavs will work together along side other AI SCAVs as well. Will this friendship continue after the job is done, though? That we will leave up to you. :) 


  • The Event will be held in SIX individual rounds. This means Six Escort Teams and Six Scav Teams.
  • The Escort Team will have 20 minutes from the beginning of the Round to move through the Map, engage hostile Scavs and reach the extract zone.
  • The Scav Team has the full duration of the round to intercept and eliminate the escaping PMC's and the HVT's they guard.
  • Each Round will happen in quick succession at the conclusion of the previous Round, so we urge all players to arrive early and ahead of time to prepare for the event, to help ensure we can begin each round quickly and reduce the overall wait time between matches.

Event Preparation

In Preparation of the Event, we urge all attending players to join the Discord as soon as you receive the invite (Invites will be sent hours before the event), and try to be online an hour before the beginning of the event for organisation into the groups and rounds. The quicker everyone can be organised, the faster we can get to playing and having a great time! Attendance will be on a first-come, first-serve basis for assignment of Rounds and Teams. Late arrivals will either be unable to participate or be placed on a backup roster to fill in last minute vacancies. We will start giving places 1 hour before the event starting time and first raid will commense when the timer hits 0.
