Escape From Tarkov’s Latest Update Buffs The Rogues on Lighthouse

Escape From Tarkov has received a brand new update that changes a couple of known issues. Battlestate Games remains vigilant shortly after the deployment of patch 0.12.12, which has caused a couple of problems that now have to be fixed. This is yet another Escape From Tarkov update after the Lighthouse performance patch. So, what’s changed?

Lighthouse is the new Escape From Tarkov map that introduced a wholly unique gameplay experience. Namely, there are USEC Rogues that have decided to hold the Water Treatment Plant and defend it from dangerous travelers, while at the same time they have sworn to engage on opposing faction, BEARs. Well, these Rogues were not as brutal since players found a way to farm them over and over again. That is likely to be changed because today’s update tweaks them. Now, the Rogues will open fire at a further distance.

According to the developer, they will now react to scav players at a larger distance and open fire on warned players a lot earlier. This endangers the USECs quite a lot, and BEARs on the other side will have to coast around the zone without breaking in. Any faction player that gets too close to a stationary weapon will be fired upon.

Furthermore, the update addresses the Trader reputation problem caused by completing the quest “Chemical – Part 4”. The issue is no longer persistent, and soon, players will be compensated for their lost reputation. This update also fixes some other core issues. Below you can find the complete list of changes available with today’s update.
