Escape From Tarkov 0.8.3 is out, enables AI Scavs on Interchange

Today’s update 0.8.3 is the third Escape From Tarkov update after the main 0.8 was released. If you remember, Escape From Tarkov’s 0.8 added a new map, and variety of different content and tasks to deal with. The introduced map was Interchange, in which no AI Scavs were spawning. Thanks to today’s patch 0.8.3, AI Scavs do spawn on Interchange which gives a reason to include it as a part of your regular queue.

As the developer noted, this 0.8.3 update deals with minor bug fixes, including the known VAL folding bug. Among other things, BSG made improved armor-ammo balancing and Factory receives new loot containers, including new barter items.

Furthermore, this update also fixes the spawn chance of some items, trading schemes, and decreases the price of some ammo and meds containers. As for new in-game items, the game adds multiple weapon modifications and new barter items.

All of the previous significant updates have caused an account wipe. However, this update is considered as minor, and there will be no wipes at all. Players can continue grinding their perfect gear, but the most interesting fact is the new quests the game has received. The Quest system in Escape From Tarkov is fun and quite challenging to follow, and by finishing each quest, you gain increased trader reputation and gain different benefits.
