About Escape from Tarkov – An Introduction

Escape from Tarkov is an online multiplayer first-person PvP Game.  The complete game is divided into five areas i.e. Factory, Customs, Woods, Shoreline, Interchange, The Lab, Reserve, and Hideout.   It will take approx 6 hours of gameplay to complete the Escape from Tarkov.  

There are mainly two Factions you can choose from in the Escape from Tarkov.  You can either be a Usec (a Western state PMC) or a Bear (a Russian PMC).  Do not worry PMC is Private Military Company Operators.  

One of the major differences between the two factions is language.  As its PMC suggests, Usec will be talking in English and Bear will be in Russian.  So it is better you should choose a faction with which language you are comfortable.

Yes, obviously the other difference will be of Weapons and Gears both factions are using.  The weapons and gears will represent their origin heredity.   

After choosing your faction you also have the option to enter into a raid as a Scav or as PMC.  

Entering into a raid as PMC will bet all your collection, ammo, weapon, gears everything with you.  If you die, you will lose everything.  Though you can insure your stuff that also depends if some other players have not taken it over.

So, if you are a beginner, you can start entering as a Scav.  As entering into the raid as scav is a win-win situation for you.  You can use all your ammo, weapons, gears, you have as PMC.  If you die in a raid you don’t lose anything.  Moreover, if you successfully exit the raids you will have options to transfer all your loot-in raids to your PMC account.

That’s it for Introduction, let quickly jump into our Escape From Tarkov Customs Map Guide.

Customs Map – Zones & Building

Before you start playing, be comfortable with the various zones, buildings of the Customs Map.  Here is the complete list of Escape from the Tarkov Customs Maps area.

List of Zones, Building and other areas of Escape from Tarkov Customs Maps

  • Customs Storage Zone

This would be the first zone when you spawn into the customs map from the western side.  Or it could be one of the extraction points when spawning from the Eastern side.

This area includes Trainyard, a Customs office building, Trailer Park Cabin, Parking. 

If you are a beginner and playing with little or no gears, then it is a must-visit place.  You will find some important required stuff in here, like Med case, Sports Bag, Wooden Crates, Jackets, Weapon Box loose loots, etc.  Or even Keys (East Wing Room 306, 310 Key, Trailer Park Cabin Keys),  which can be used to complete quests inside the gameplay.

But beware, you will have to be very careful here.  You can anytime be ambushed by PMC or Scav Spawns.  You have to be very careful not for a land attack, but you can also be targeted from above the garages in the Parking area.  

Get all the keys and items and extract from one of the points or exit from one of four Bridges (Junk Bridge, Main Bridge, AIPC Bridge, and Northern Bridge). 

Make sure to take extreme care while crossing the bridges.  You will find MPCs here crossing the zones.  

  • Construction Site

Originally in the Escape from Tarkov Customs Map, this is an Industrial Area situated right in the middle of the Map.  But due to the Construction site, it is popularly known as the Construction area.  This area includes Warehouse 17, Factory Shacks, Construction Site, Boss Spawn area.  

You have to be very careful in this area.  As just small negligence will get a headshot right away.  Yes, you guessed it right, this the Scave Sniper’s Area.  Whether you are entering from the eastern side or the western side the entrance is guarded by snipers.   The first sniper is on the top of the second building from Warehouse 17 when you are spawned from the western side. Or you will encounter right before entry when you spawn from the Warehouse or Shipping Yards area from the eastern side.   

Passing the Snipers you should avoid getting noticed by the Scave Boss Reshala.  It doesn’t mean you can’t fight with Boss.  You can but make sure you should have upgraded armours and weapons, which can match up to the Boss level weapons.  And do not forget you also have to beat 4 guards heavily guarded with 3-6 levels arms and armours.   

So it is better to leave them alone.  Or read our section below before getting into an encounter with Boss Reshala. 

Explore all the buildings in the Construction site to get Med cases, Jackets, Weapon Boxes, Wooden ammo Boxes, Secure cases, Drawers, etc.  Also there you find two keys(Unknown Key, Portable cabin key of Factory)

  • Old Gas Station

This is an old abandoned gas station, with no Scav spawnings.  

It is also one of the extraction points you can get right after the boss spawn in the Construction site. Or if you are coming from the shipyard area after PMC spawning.  

Grab some loose loots here with wooden crates and also some hidden stashes before extraction.

  • Warehouse 4 / Shipping Yard

A big open area with big cranes and heavy containers, you can easily guess that you are in a Shipping yard.  

You must be having some good heavy arms and armours to pass through this area.  This area will test your skills.  You have to be careful here.  This is the area of PMC spawns.  You would be fighting with players to keep you away from death.  

Also, when moving towards the Boiler area or coming from the Boiler area if spawned from the eastern side take care of Sniper.  Sniper will be active on the top of the Container Building. 

Fighting and surviving through this area you have the option to pick up wooden crates, Secure case for documents.  And definitely keys to OLI Logistics Department office, Factory exit keys, and unknown key.  Don’t forget to take your spawn loots after spawning. 

  • Boiler Area

I am glad that you have reached this far and still reading.  Yeah, that will also be true for this Area also, if you are coming from the Western side of the Customs map.  

Why am I saying this? Because these will be your Final Extraction points.  Congratulations!

But don’t think you will be the only one. Yeah, Boiler Area is one of the most common Extraction points for most of the players.  

Expect a heavy PMC Spawn and Scav Spawn here.  So is the chance of filling up your inventory.   You can also earn some quick cash by selling those inventories right from your trading accounts between your raids.

But be careful while jumping into the loots right after the spawning, as you might get killed by another PMC.  In addition to loot, you can also get a Factory exit key, Hidden stashes, PC block.  After collecting all you can extract from ZB-1011 point.

  • Dorms V-Ex

The extreme hottest zone of the Customs map is Dorms V-Ex.  If you are a beginner, do not jump in PMC mode here instead use Scav mode.   This way you will not lose your inventory and also will be able to save your in-game loots.  

Are you still confused! Why am I saying, Hottest Zone?  Every player wants to come here and enjoy the loot and scav kills.  It is not the only thing,  On either of the Dorms Building, you must be fighting the Customs Boss, Reshala along with other Players.

Scavs will also be enjoying the party in between.  The encounters will be in close to mid ranges. It will be a nerve-breaking experience.  You have to be very alert all the time.  You also will have to have Dorm Room Keys to get access to marked rooms.

Thinking it is over! Not yet, extraction from the Dorms V-ex is also not going to be easy.  You will have to have 7000 Roubles with you; either in your account or have looted during the gameplay.    At the extraction point, you need to pay this to a car driver to take you through the extraction point.  

And for the icing on the top, there will be a 60 second waiting time period before the car drives away.  You have to keep yourself safe until the last second.  Keep yourself a little away from the car.  Board the car just before the final seconds.  Once the time is over the car will drive away, whether you have boarded it or not. 

Upon safe extraction, you will be able to get valuable and expensive loots, Cash, a Grenade box, Boss, and its guard-heavy arms and armour. 

  • Gas Station

After the Dorms, this is the second place where all the players want to get into.  Did you get it, Why? Yeah! Of course a big loot.  

The Boss Reshala spawn also is here, so you also have a chance to get some high-level weapons, armours, etc. 

After spawning the area you can access the nearby Bus Terminal and Substation to get some hidden stashes, keys, Weapon boxes, etc.

Be careful at Substation as you might encounter with the Customs Boss Spawn here.  

Extracting will not be easy here, the extracting points are not nearby.  The most nearby extracting point will inside the Shipyard i.e. ZB-1012 point, then Rauf Roadblock (not recommended), then all over back to Crossroad (the safest way) though a long way.

Upon successful extracting from the site you will be able to get Key to Goshen Cash Register, Key to Emercon Medical Unit, Lab. Key Arsenal Storage Room, Wooden Crates, Hidden Stashes, Sports Bag, Spawn Loots, Loose loots, High-level weapons, armour, guards other items.

Beating the Escape from Tarkov Customs Boss Reshala

Beating the Boss is not easy as you think it would be.  You will always find him with his Four Bodyguards.  

These guards are heavily guarded with arms.  They will be shooting at you with modded AK.  They use different types of ammunition including tracer bullets.  They are armoured with levels anywhere between level 2-6 Armour Vests, Level 3-5 helmets with visors.  Don’t treat these guards as ordinary scav.  Comparatively, these guards are more aggressive.

It will not be difficult for you to identify Boss Reshala.  All the guards will be in Blue and Boss Reshala will be wearing a brown sweater.  

The best way to beat him out is to find him before he finds you out.  It means that you should avoid coming to the Boss’s notice before you start a war against him.  

Immediately after your attack, the boss will take the cover of their Guards.  So, you have to then kill all the guards first then take him out.

The guards will remain in close proximity to the use of grenades will be most effective.  Guards were also equipped with grenades and flashbangs.  So, don’t remain in the same place,  keep changing your position.   Peak through the cover once or twice, take shots, and aim for headshots (if possible).  Change positions after every encounter.
