Escape From Tarkov Nerfs Aquamari and Scav Case Timer

Bad Rep Scav Case Timer is Brutal, and players with bad karma will no longer be getting goodies at high frequency.

After a long absence, the developer of Escape From Tarkov, BSG, has finally decided to make some changes regarding the loot and alter the Scav Case Timer. The Scav Case is a Hideout element that is supposed to help those in need. The changes are in force today, March 28th, and they also wrap some additional items, aside from the Aquamari and Scav Case nerf.

Furthermore, this update changes the amount of VPX Flash Storage Modules you can carry in a Raid. From today, the amount of VPX Flash Storage Modules you can carry is 3, as opposed to the previously unlimited status. Additionally, the M-2 Tactical Sword has been limited to 1, which indicates another potential RMT battling by the developer.

Below you can find the complete values for the Scav Case Timers and the Aquamari, which no longer hold the same values as before. Those with a negative Fence reputation will find this quite impactful, as the timer for sending the Scavs on a mission will be diminished accordingly.

  • Aquamari water bottle with filter
    • Previusly: 150
    • Now: 50
  • Aquamari effects on health and hydration
    • Previously: 350
    • Now: 40
  • Rough estimate, it will now increase your hydration level by ~2.5 points per point.

Furthermore, the Scav Case Timer has been tweaked accordingly to the player’s reputation with Fence. A negative reputation now imbues harsher penalties on the Scav Case Timer, which algorithm determines the pace at which the Scavs finish their mission and return with the goodies.

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.
