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 200. Maximum weight of 3.8kg. And decide for yourself what is more important to you, the journey or the destination.

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


  • Modify MP5 to comply with the required specification

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.
