Slowly but surely, Battlestate Games’ promotion of the upcoming in-game trader is ramping up. As we know so far, the new trader is getting ready to set a foothold on Escape From Tarkov’s latest map, Lighthouse. Today’s message posted by the developer reveals that things have heated up, as threats have been directed towards Kiseleff A.F. Kiseleff A.F. then sent the letter to Pilsudski explaining the situation, asking him if he had the same type of threats. So what’s this all about?
First thing’s first, take a look at the message below.

The translation of the message above can be found below:
Is that blackmailer sending you a signal too? I had to ask some nerd to translate all those fucking morse code messages. Here’s the translation: “If you value your life, stop purchasing electronics” He is trying to threaten me! Me!
TLDR: this seems like just another promotion and sort of hype-up for the upcoming trader who will be on Lighthouse, as he will be stocked on electronics. Unlike other traders in Escape From Tarkov, the only way to visit him will be through a raid as he will be stationed inside the Lighthouse. As it was introduced, he will be heavily guarded by bosses, which will be a hard challenge to deal with.
Who are Kiseleff and Pilsudsky?
While I have no idea who really Kiseleff A.F. is, Tadeusz Pilsudski is known as Peacekeeper, a trader already operating in the Norvinsk Region. So in this case, Kiseleff is curious if Peacekeeper is also being threatened? Most probably the REDSCAV, the one whose existence was decrypted from the morse code given in a video.
