Escape From Tarkov Camo Face Paint: Bug or Upcoming Feature?

In yesterday’s EFT raids, something unexpected happened. Apparently, one of my friends turned into HULK mode out of nowhere. His face was camouflaged for no apparent reason, which made us think that this is some feature in the works, and it occurred due to some unnatural in-game trigger. This happened on Woods, which is the perfect map for camouflage like this. Currently, there’s not a single in-game item that allows face painting.

His face turned green, which reflected the lavish colors of woods. While some may believe that face camouflage is irrelevant in the game, we think it has potent properties to hide you from the enemy in some situations. Without further ado, take a look at his camouflaged face below:

The colors on his face did not alter at all. They remained the same during the whole raid, which makes us think it’s a feature in the works, implemented with patch 0.12 but without proper access.

We’d love to see all the Escape From Tarkov theory crafters jump onto this one. From my surrounding, some believe it’s a bug. Others think it’s a feature in the works. Even if it is, this looks exceptionally good, and I am more than sure everyone would agree with that. Instead of wearing a boring balaclava or face masks, why don’t we get something cool like this?

We tried to contact BSG regarding this and we’re waiting for an answer.

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.
