Escape From Tarkov Patch Fixes a lot of Issues

Battlestate Games is planning to release a new update for Escape From Tarkov, covering some of the known and tiring issues that have been swarming players over the past period. The maintenance period is planned to seize the servers for 4 hours, with a chance of extension if something goes wrong. Escape From Tarkov Patch will be deployed on August 10, 2021, at 10 AM MSK.

Escape From Tarkov is one of the most punishing and realistic shooters in the world. Its player base speaks for how ideal the game is without acknowledging its Beta characteristics. The developer is working tirelessly to fix all of the known issues while also tries to satisfy the boisterous players that are usually not on the same page with the developer.

Some massive changes are coming in this update. The Scav Karma system is getting further alteration. Player Scavs are now guaranteed to receive a positive reputation upon successful extraction. Players with high Scav Karma will also get a super discount of 30% for Fence’s complete catalog.

The new Scav Bos on Factory, Tagilla, will no longer swing in space. The melee sounds of the Sledgehammer are finally to be addressed so that other players on Factory would hear the *bang* upon impact. The bugged PMC voices shall no longer be bugged, as the developer would allow the players to choose PMC voices in the Sound settings tab, which should reset the default option. Flea Market will become accessible again for players with a lower level than 20. While these were some of the changes, below, you can find the complete list of fixes.
