Escape from Tarkov Introduces New Map and Weapons in Patch

Patch Battlestate Games

The multiplayer tactical first-person shooter Escape from Tarkov wants to end the year with a bang with Patch This update introduces new content, including a map, as well as some weapons and equipment.

A new map is added in the latest update for Escape from Tarkov, just situated at the intersection of Primorsky Avenue and Klimov Street. Most inhabitants had already left following the conflict between the USEC PMCs and PMC BEAR. The only people remaining are criminals and the poor, and they will do everything to take what's left of the city.

BEAR and USEC operatives must now do whatever they can to find their way out of Tarkov. The new map includes some key points of interest, including the news agency building, an abandoned factory, Pinewood Hotel, and Concordia Residential Complex.

Patch also adds new weapons and equipment. The new SR-2M “Veresk” 9x21 is a submachine gun with a relatively lower rate of fire than other SMGs, but it does pack a punch. Players just have to control the recoil if they want to maximize this weapon, though.

Fans of the Steyr AUG rifles might want to get their hands on the new Steyr AUG A1 and A3 5.56x45 variants. These guns come with modifications that increase their magazine size to 10, 30, and 42 rounds, meaning players will have enough ammo to kill their enemies before reloading.
