Escape From Tarkov New Gun Jam Mechanic is Awesome

Battlestate Games has put quite a lot of work on this major update, 0.12.11. The update is full of features, and after our grinding on day one, we discovered so many of them. Apparently, there is also a gun jamming feature, which might occur if the gun is damaged. Guns picked up from Scavs and Bosses are not at full durability now. Knowing the Escape From Tarkov meta, using 60-round mags will be scary to do so, especially if the “spray and pray method” occludes.

In a recent Reddit thread, a guy has tried to find the chance for this occurrence. The chance% of jamming is based on the weapon durability%. According to his experiment, the jam chance on a 100% to 95% weapon durability is quite low, but it gets scary on everything below that. His advice is to repair your gun at above 90% durability.

I shot 8500 rounds through an AK-74M to work out the new jam mechanics from EscapefromTarkov

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.
