Escape From Tarkov’s patch 0.12.11 has added a new mechanic that will tackle bush wookies. Battlestate Games has decided to prevent players from running through bushes, as the game gets a tiny bit more realistic with it.
Players are limited to movement once they get in contact with a bush. If they’re running, they will traverse to walking. Similar to the bushes on Reserve. Furthermore, they are limited to two stances only, either standing upright or crouched. Prone is no longer possible in dense bushes.
The full list of patch notes is still not revealed by Battlestate Games because, as we assumed, the developer wants players to discover a couple of the features by themselves. Well, the new bush mechanic is one of them, and we’re here to let you know about it.
We want to give you some time to discover the new features of the patch. We will post a full list of new features and changes later.
Enjoy the game!
