Is anyone else encountering horrific stutters and frame drops on pretty much every map? I will occasionally have my frames drop down to sub 10 or sub 1 randomly for several seconds at a time. I had the occasional stutter before the wipe but now it is starting to get unplayable. I have no idea whats causing it or how to re-create it.

Every time a run good kits, lvl 5/6 armor, high end ammo, I die within the first 5 minutes of the raid. Am I being targeted by hackers? No gear fear, just frustration. I will run through with a PACA and a TOZ and be fine more often than not. 4th wipe, decent at PVP, 54% survival rate.

Hackers are definitely part of it, you're probably also looking for more fights on those raids which can be part of it too.

There's a soft cap of maybe tier 4/cheap tier 5 and modded but not bis weapon if you don't want hackers to bother you. If you want a fun experiment, pick a safe money run like woods stashes or something and run it 20 times with a pistol + mechanism and then 20 times with a 1 mil+ kit and compare results.

Someone in another thread said as a scav we can kill raiders and bosses without a rep hit. Is this true?

Raiders yes, bosses no

Yo why are you PMCs in Interchange so long?? I keep getting killed on my Scav with only minutes left in raid. Bummed because I finally found a 60 round AK mag for the Gunsmith quest. And can't find an Electric Drill for Lavatory level 2 to craft the damn things either, which is why I keep scavving Interchange in the first place.

Back to it I guess.

Feels like we've already reached the stage in a wipe where casuals have to play by loading in with a basic loadout (with food), quickly find a place to hide for the first 30 minutes of a raid, then try to scurry around in the last 15 minutes to accomplish something.

That's always the best solo play style if you actually want to accomplish tasks.

Is the game worth it at the base price or will l have a big handicap?

Buy at base price, if you love it, upgrade. That’s what I did and I have 2.5k hours

It's not super pay to win, but it's a little pay to win. If you have standard edition you won't necessarily be at a disadvantage in any particular fight, but you will need more resources to improve your hideout and you'll accumulate them a little slower. I'd just get regular edition and see if it's your jam, if it is you can always upgrade for the difference in price

You don't really get an advantage over other players by paying more, it just makes parts of the game easier. Definitely worth starting with the base game to see if you like it then upgrade during the next sale.

I am still baffled by the fact that chinese players are still somehow allowed to play on EU.

I just got killed with one bullet in the right hand with a https://escapefromtarkov.fandom.com/wiki/12.7x55mm_PS12B

How is that possible? I was full health.

Scav quest eliminate 7 pmcs with stomach or thorax shot in 24 hours ?
Seriously ? I know you can replace them (and lose rep+money) but just proposing these poorly designed quests to the player and assuming everybody plays 12+ hours/day is so annoying.

Replacing them costs rep. So if you replace and then complete the 2nd quest you will only break even on rep, although you do gain like 0.01 simply for extracting as a scav.

I don't see replacing as ever being worth it. Better to just skip the quest.

Especially when the majority of my scav runs I get in under 13 mins left. All, if not the majority of PMC’s are gone by then.

We have been trying to locatie gluhar in coop offline raid but it seems he doesnt spawn?

I believe the coop raids are like online raids, so they only have a small chance to spawn.

Bought this in 2017, hated every minute of it. Finally getting into it now, accumulated my first million and just hit level 8.

Really fkn hate that the damn flea market is level restricted though. I have so much loot that would be worth money just taking up space

Buy a lucky scav junk box from your first million :)
