Escape from Tarkov received a major update yesterday. The update doesn’t add a lot of content but it does make tons of improvements to the game. The performance has been improved, and several changes to gameplay and QoL features have been made. More than a dozen bugs were squashed and some minor visual changes were made.

We have mentioned the highlights of the update below:

Optimization and Performance
  • Made adjustments that reduced the amount of consumed RAM after finishing a raid.
  • Changed the logic of in-game fonts to reduce memory consumption.
  • Enabled Reflex no longer affects performance in the Hideout.
  • Optimized the logic of loading character voices in raid, which reduced the time to load into raids.
  • Optimized the sound batch loading, which reduced memory consumption and time to load into raids.
  • Optimized the location loading time by rationalizing the logic of storing game resources.
  • Optimized the memory consumption of the client by unloading all unused scenes from the memory.
  • Optimized trader offer search time while using context search and filters.
Gameplay and QOL Сhanges
  • Reworked the game logic of the inventory, item moving and context menus to minimize the number of errors that occurred in the stash.
  • Added the ability to change weapon fire modes “by rotation” by double-pressing the fire mode key.
  • Added a “to menu” button to the first post-raid screen to skip all next screens.
  • Added a check mark that lets you know if a weapon matches the Mechanic’s task requirements when inspecting it in the preset menu.
  • Added the maximum single fire rate parameter for all weapons.
  • All broken and damaged window glass is now synchronized between all players even if loading into an already ongoing raid.
  • Optimized the formula of calculating Fence reputation penalty when killing Scavs while having a high reputation.
  • Changing the quality settings of shadows and textures, choosing graphics presets and changing the Mip Streaming option is no longer possible during a raid.
  • Redesigned the system of game settings that allowed to avoid several existing problems when changing parameters.
  • Now, when trying to create an offer with missing items for sale, a “No available items” message will appear.
  • The raid session id in the bottom left corner is now unique for every player. It will no longer be possible to tell on which server a streamer is currently playing.
