"You Win Because of Your Gear!" || Escape from Tarkov Highlights
Follow me on Twitch – I’m live every night!
I dipped my toes into the EFT subreddit for the first time the other day, sharing my opinion on all the complaining from players some new and some who have been playing for some time, claiming that without the very best gear/guns/ammo/armor it’s impossible to win fights and get gear yourself.
I posted a clip of me sneaking up on a couple of dudes in nighttime factory, when I was level 1 with the starter pistol. Killed them both and got out with a couple sets of night vision and some pretty nice stuff. This clip was mostly for the meme, but the response I got on my first time in the subreddit was pretty unanimous, along the lines of “you level 40’s think you are gods because you have the best gear and all they do is kill hatchlings or dudes who are AFK!”
Anyway, I had a bit of fun in the last two days doing scav runs, running low gear on my sub-level 10 account, or running on my main account with cheap gear like a toz or 153s and armor I purchased from Fence.
People claim these are 1 100 or more raids… They aren’t if you play smart, wait for your opponents to make mistakes, use the environment to your advantage, move unpredictably, have good aim, and get a bit of luck and netcode sprinkled in for good measure.
Stop making excuses folks – the game may be broken, but it’s broken for everyone… Keep raiding and improving out there!
