The Hermit Quest Dialogue

Hello soldier. You know, I’ve lost almost everyone close to me because of this carnage around. There’s nobody to even talk to at dinner. There’s you who comes by for an hour or two, but you go back to that war of yours, even if there’s no point in fighting anymore. Eh, I won’t burden you with my talks. I have a request for you. I had a good friend, we always were very close together – similar in character, understood each other perfectly. He’s set up at the Cape Dalniy, in that old village, but far from the people – made a nice dugout for himself at the outskirts. I don’t know if anyone still lives in that village, but I do want you to find my friend. I’ll be waiting to hear from you, kid.

Oh, so you found a note? Hold on, don’t open it for now – I’ll read it by myself later.


Jaeger wants us to go to Lighthouse and find his friend’s letter. Since the map is new to everyone, it’s best to provide the full map of Lighthouse, highlighting the location, but the navigation has to be done by yourself. The message is located on the tiny island in the middle of the map. Check the image below:

Just below, you can find the exact look of the hideout. It’s more like a shack or underground bunker; call it however you want. The letter you need to pick up is just in front of the door.

Good luck with your future Tarkov endeavors.

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. My mission is to lurk and discover secrets, create guides and provide you with some important news. I mostly play FPS and love experimenting in good MMORPGs.
