My brothers in arms. Even you in the corner rat. Im new to Tarkov with only 140+ hours, 2nd wipe. This game is a test of temper and endurance which still is only a small fraction of what this FPS Horror offers. Through my rat faze into my I finally understand how to shoot properly I've created a better way to really enjoy myself and time played on this game. These fun methods are for learning and just enjoying the game without feeling like you have to pursue that Kappa.
Disclaimer: I Still Suck But This Is My Way Of Both Learning And Enjoying The Tarkov Experience.
1: USE YOUR SCAV!
This one is important because of the obvious. You are both learning maps and beginning your grind on learning recoil control with not so fantastic weapons. This helped me become more skilled with map movement and taming weapon recoil. Cache hunting as a scav most times can net you a profit all risk free!
2: PICK A MAP TO LOVE!
Customs was my baby since I've started which at first "at least for me." Was very challenging. I died more often than not on my pmc but then I had implemented Rule 1 and started making profit! I started finding cheeky angles and used this knowledge again but as my pmc.
3: ITS JUST A GAME / MINIMAL GEAR FEAR
Contradiction heavy here. Being bipolar makes this game fun tbh. I use profit from my cost free scav and set my pmc up with some decent stuff. Nothing crazy so i don't become a rat during raid but buy one mag full of good ammo it can go a long way. Don't be scared just be smart ("use what you got and sell what you are scared of losing.")
4: TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK
This is a big one right here and even I myself fall short of this. Start teaming up with players and doing raids with them. I used to only play solo and it wasn't looking to hot i had a 14% survival rate. Teaming is both a tool for survival and learning. I've learned an aggressive amount more by teaming with players through discord and found i was doubling if not tripling my profit/survival. I urge you to do this it's going to go a long way.
5: JUST HAVE FUN CHAD/RAT
Any play style any technique the goal is to just enjoy the time you spend on the game. My way is dumping 250,000 rubles on a set and team play and enjoy it. When I drop a chad with 7n1 cuz i decided 40,000 roubles worth of that ammo was worth it.
Im not the guy that's hunting for end game im just here for a good time and so far this way has been beneficial to me as a casual. If you don't agree or have any other fun quirky methods drop it in the comments. Good luck to all ill see you in raid :,)
