If you’re anything like us, you probably waste a good amount of your life playing first-person shooters when you’re not shitposting about guns online.
So strap on those carpal tunnel braces and grab your mountain dew, fellow nerds, because today we’re going to tell you why you should be playing Escape From Tarkov!
Wait, You’re a Gaming Site Now?
Absolutely not – however, it’s probably reasonable to suspect that a lot of us first got into firearms through early exposure to vidyagames – be that Goldeneye 64, the Battlefield franchise, Call of Duty (when it was good), etc.
Gun reviews and gear guides are always going to be our bread and butter, but it’s fun to take a break occasionally and tell you guys about some of the other things we have fun with that tie into our normal content reasonably well.
Who’s It For?
Tarkov is an incredibly realistic first-person shooter that’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
Compared to many other FPS franchises out there, Tarkov rewards players who move through their environment tactically and efficiently and also punishes you for dying by making you forfeit every piece of gear you had on you when killed.
Yeah, it sucks – but the end result of tension makes it quite unlike any other shooter we’ve ever played.
Combined with an absurdly detailed gun customization system, incredible sound design, and an intricate armor, ammo and trauma mechanic – Escape From Tarkov has easily become one of our favorite ways to waste time when we’re not playing with real guns.
