Escape From Tarkov Patch 0.12.5 Is Live – Patch Notes

Escape From Tarkov, the most popular and realistic tactical first-person shooter has just deployed a new patch, 0.12.5. Together with it, a new Post FX effects, which will allow you to tune your imagery and get a desired point of view. The addition of the Post FX will diminish Nvidia Freestyle from existence. It is expected Nvidia Freestyle to become absent on May 1st.

Overall, we’re about to see a more realistic Escape From Tarkov experience, due to a big change that prevents players from doing two actions at the same time. For example, limb surgery will not allow you to fill your magazines, etc.

A problem everyone was buzzing about is the change of mouse sensitivity by using different optics. A dependence on high magnification scopes is being added so that players can cope with a more reasonable mouse speed.

Bug Fixes are no stranger in EFT, and they have taken a couple of spots in today’s update as well. Keep in mind that 0.12.5 is just a preparation for what’s to come, and that is 0.12.6, together with the new map that will support up to 40 players at the same time.

But to cut the talk and jump straight to the patch notes, check below:
