Escape From Tarkov’s 0.8 Update and Wipe scheduled for April 19

It’s been a long time since Battlestate Games have talked regarding the upcoming 0.8 update. Well, it has finally come, the announcement that we all have been waiting for. Next Escape From Tarkov’s wipe and the 0.8 update is about to occur, on April 19.

The date has been confirmed on their twitter as well:

This update will bring many changes and introduce new features to the game. New sort of magazine loading, which frankly said looks more realistic than before. The new magazine loading should slow Raid’s pace, making players reconsider and more likely increase the number of magazines they bring into the Raid.

However, the most exciting content that 0.8 brings to the table is the new Interchange map, which undoubtedly has a similar type of Factory, being somewhat a smaller and closed instance. Over the past period, Battlestate Games have been entirely working on including all of these changes, ensuring the avoidance of pop-up errors after the patch’s implementation, which further confirms their aim for Quality in Escape From Tarkov.

For those who haven’t had the chance to experiment and gather all the tasks or they’re new to the game, a guy has posted a straightforward guide regarding the items needed to fulfill some of the early in-game tasks. Some of them hard to find because of the influence of human enemy players or “aimbot Scavs,” the guide should help you prioritize the more manageable tasks.

Below you can find the guide indicating the needed items for the in-game tasks:

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
