Escape From Tarkov’s Latest Teaser Reveals Lightkeeper’s Menacing Acts

This means we still don't know who Kiseleff is. No FLEA and No Traders.

I like conspiracy theories, don’t get me wrong, and I always want to dive deep into the lore and try to figure out certain characters that are yet to be revealed. Earlier this week, we received a tease by Battlestate Games, informing us of multiple threats addressed to the already existing traders in the Norvinsk region. It turned out the hostility was coming from the Lightkeeper, the upcoming in-game trader on Lighthouse.

In that initial tease, Kiseleff A.F. (who turns out to be an unknown character and not Lightkeeper) sent a message to Tadeusz Pilsudski (Peacekeeper) that he’s being threatened to stop buying electronics. In today’s tease, we see Peacekeeper responding to that message, confirming the widespread disturbance, saying that even Ragman will have to close its place for the time being, which explains the trader closure, including the FLEA market.

His arrival seems to be somewhat brutal as he not only threatened those holding electronics in stock but everyone, leading to complete closure. We still do not know Kiseleff’s identity, so we have some room for speculation. Do you remember Nikita talking about a Trader that will be present on some extraction points between maps? Well, this Kiseleff guy could indeed be him. Why? So far, we’ve only known that the idea of such a trader breathes within Battlestate Games, and he could be ruining Lightkeeper’s income, which explains his threatening actions.

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. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. 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. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
