Escape From Tarkov 0.12.11 Full Patch Notes

The long-awaited day has come. Battlestate Games has released the full list of patch notes for update 0.12.11. There are some very noticeable changes, and lots of them are for the greater good. However, I do believe there are some hidden changes that are about to be discovered as players course through their character progression.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the Escape From Tarkov 0.12.11 patch notes below.

Escape From Tarkov 0.12.11 Patch Notes

Currently, Battlestate Games has posted a list of fixes, without highlighting any of the new additions coming to the game. As we know, at least the Factory expansion should be there, which is missing in the notes below. We assume the developer wants to keep the surprises a secret and allow players to find out about them on their own.

The developer has discovered that the full list of patch notes will be published later, and we’ll update the list below.


  • “Factory” expansion.
  • New scav boss Tagilla. Killa’s brother. He’s chosen “Factory” as a place of his own and actively exercises his past sports and combat experience. When in close combat he may switch to his favorite weapon – a sledgehammer. When someone gets hit by it, the best case scenario would be disorientation and broken bones, but usually it will cause inevitable death. The boss can set ambushes, open suppressive fire, and breach if needed.
  • First iteration of weapon malfunctions and technical deteriorating
    • You can now have a misfire on almost every gun in the game
    • Misfire can be resolved in different ways. Not only via the “Resolve” hotkey (Shift+T by default), but also by any bolt related manipulations
    • We reworked the technical condition of the guns and their deterioration from firing. Certain ammunition and weapon mods will affect the deterioration speed. We added a new stat in the inspector menu called “Durability burn” which will show that.
    • Different ammo now has increased or decreased chances of misfires.
    • Technical condition of weapon influences on base accuracy, offset of the center point of impact and general misfire chance.
    • We also added NVIDIA Reflex support. And decreased ingame input lag.
  • Fence reputation. Being the representation of Scav karma. Now players can lose reputation by killing non-hostile scavs and gain it by helping scavs and scav bosses to kill their enemy. You can also gain Fence reputation by using “a friendly scav” exfil or by using car exfil.
  • What Fence reputation level will affect:
    • Player-scav cooldown, scavbox “craft” time, amount of exfils for the player-scav, car extract fee, player-scav kit, and the prices when selling items to Fence.
    • The higher Fence reputation is – the more often AI-scavs will agree to help player-scav and respond to his commands (Follow, hold position). With very low reputation AI scavs will attack player-scav. With very high levels of reputation AI-scavs will help by attacking player-scavs’ enemies, and bosses will be considered allies.
    • Players will be able to purchase uninsured items lost by other players by reaching Fence’s max loyalty level.
  • Sorting table – additional expandable space, which will be of a great help when organizing the stash.
    • Sorting table is not supposed to be used for storage, but only as a temporary buffer zone.
    • It will be available only when out of raid and it has no size limitations.
    • You will be able to open the sorting table by clicking the icon in the bottom of the stash.
    • You can quickly put items on the sorting table by pressing Shift + left mouse click hotkey combination. This hotkey will work only when the sorting table is opened.
  • Full rework of in-game ballistics parameters for objects on all locations (penetration chances, bullet deviation and fragmentation).
  • New equipment, several body armor vests, chest rigs, backpacks and other items.
  • New weapons.
  • New quests.
  • New barter items.
  • New PMC face customization options.
  • New weapon mods.
  • Ability to report a suspicious player in the flea market.
  • Special player status “Streamer”. It will hide various user information from the game client. You can activate this status on the main page of the game settings. This setting will be available only by personal requests. More details on how you can submit a request will be given later.
  • Out of raid voice commands settings.
  • “Top-up” option of the context menu. This option will allow you to fill the stack of items by items of the same kind.This option will not mix items with FIR(Found in raid) status with non FIR items.
  • New main menu background.
  • New skill “Weapon maintenance”.
  • New skill “Troubleshooting”.
  • TAA anti-aliasing at weapon presets menu.
  • First iteration of the EN localization rework.
  • Maximum level of character changed to 79.


  • Optics rework.
  • The aiming camera will now always be at an equal distance from the weapon. The distance does not depend on the sight installed and the way it is mounted on the gun: on the receiver, on the handguard, etc. The change affects mechanical and collimator sights. Including those used in hybrid sights.
  • Added a limit on the number of items put on the flea market in one lot. Now the size of the pack of items in the lot can not exceed the size of the stash.

  • The difference in the actions of the character when switching between pressing and holding the keys.
  • Strong and weak grenade throws now work the same way: held down by the key, thrown by releasing the key, and this does not depend on the aiming key settings.

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.
