Escape From Tarkov Latest Update Fixes a Long-Existing Issue and Allows D2 Campers To Have Fun Again

You can no longer hand over quest item with items inside

Escape From Tarkov it’s slowly getting in its third month since the wipe, and the developer has decided to surprise the fans with a brand new update that seemingly fixes a plethora of issues. Titled as update, it also takes care of a long-existing issue that allows players to return quest items or full containers. How many of you have returned a Pilgrim full of items to Ragman?

Furthermore, this update fixes an issue with shotguns not dealing damage and an infinite loading screen issue when loading into a raid as a Scav. Another essential change in this update is removing the ability to look through the bunker walls on Reserve, which means D2 campers will thrive again. I mean, once I swore not to go there, but you cannot miss the fun, right?

Without further ado, you can check the complete patch notes below:

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.
