Gunsmith. Part 3 – Escape From Tarkov Guide

We love doing things slowly, but only if they remain with high relevance. Now it’s time for the third quest from the Gunsmith series in Escape From Tarkov, and Mechanic wants us to build an MP5 according to his specifications. Without further ado, let’s jump to the quest description.

Gunsmith. Part 3 Description

When I was a child, people used to say that it is not a destination that matters, but a journey itself. But what if the destination is yourself, what do you know, how you use your reflexes and how many rounds you have in the magazine? This feels particularly true when you’re supposed to survive clinging this world with your teeth. I need an MP5. With 50-round extended mag, silencer, tactical flashlight and sighting range of more than 200. Ergonomics above 45, recoil sum less than 250. Maximum weight of 3.8kg. And decide for yourself what is more important to you, the journey or the destination.

Initial Equipment

  • HK MP5 9×19 from Peacekeeper LVL 1 (barter) or LVL 2 ($)


  • Modify MP5 to comply with the required specification


  • 8000 XP
  • 527 Euros

  • Submachinegun PP-19-01 Vityaz-SN 9×19 Zenit

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. My mission is to lurk and discover secrets, create guides and provide you with some important news. I mostly play FPS and love experimenting in good MMORPGs.
