Battlestate Games has released a small patch for Escape From Tarkov without having a significant server downtime. The patch addresses a couple of bugs and issues and changes the damage distribution across the body when shooting damaged or blacked-out limbs.
This change fixes an issue where a seriously wounded character would not die after a couple of hits at his destroyed limb. The change applies to PMCs, Player Scavs, and all AI bots. After a player gets shot at a blacked-out limb, the damage is distributed accordingly towards all vital parts of his body. The official changes for today’s update can be found below:
- Changed the damage distribution mechanics when shooting destroyed (blacked-out) limbs for PMCs, Player Scavs, and all AI bots. Now, when a blacked-out limb gets shot at, the damage will be distributed across all non-destroyed limbs (before this, the blacked-out parts also counted for distribution, which mitigated some of the overall damage). This will eliminate situations when a seriously wounded character would not die after several hits in the blacked-out area.
