Before entering the raid, each player is forced to pass an equipment test. A novice unknowingly may have difficulties already at this stage of the game. Especially for those who want to get into the fight faster, we have prepared a quick start guide for Escape from Tarkov.

With each patch, Escape from Tarkov gets better and starts to attract more streamers and players. Against the backdrop of an active influx of recruits and the hardcore nature of the project, it would be appropriate to talk about how to simplify entry into the game.

In this guide, we will briefly talk about the basic principles of equipping a fighter before a raid, as well as help you choose the optimal, balanced and cost-effective body kit for a quick start in the game.

The main items of equipment in Tarkov are weapons, modifications, medicines and armor. Almost everything you need is easily purchased from merchants or at a flea market – a local flea market. By the way, it is more profitable to buy from players than from NPCs.

If you know in advance what to look for in stores, you can quickly and relatively cheaply prepare your fighter for a raid. In this guide, we will go over each category of equipment and offer you effective and inexpensive solutions to choose from.


A very important element that will directly affect the effectiveness of your hits on the enemy. High penetration ammo will deal more damage to unprotected flesh, while armor piercing ammo will be able to pierce through the protective elements of the equipment.

Beginners are advised to focus on ammo with good armor penetration. Although their damage is not so high, but the projectile is more likely to hit the enemy.

Among other things, you need to learn how to balance price and performance, because not all cartridges are worth the requested money. Focus on the penetration parameter in the region of 40+ and do not chase the most expensive offers. Read more about ammo in the guide Escape from Tarkov – the best ammo.

Vendors and merchant players really have a lot of interesting and useful offers regarding weapons, including those for beginners. Here are a few options, the prices of which may vary, but are often kept within reasonable limits, and there is no doubt about the effectiveness of this weapon:
