Escape From Tarkov Traders Return as Event Concludes

Ransom Collected, Traders Return, what's next?

Escape From Tarkov’s latest event has concluded. Today’s letter reveals that the ransom has been collected, which means the traders were held captive by Lightkeeper. The official website has been updated with another image that confirms the trader’s return, which also shows the completion of the same.

On the website, we can see a letter addressed to Kiseleff. The letter is sent by Peacekeeper, an already known character, while Kiselev’s figure remains unknown. The letter says the following:

The Ransom is finally collected – you can tell everyone that they can start working again and say thank you to everyone who helped. We’re broke now, but we’re still alive. The Lightkeeper is a dangerous man, it’s best not to get in his way. See you later.


The letter pretty much says that Lightkeeper is not happy as other traders will continue operating within Tarkov. However, he has to be lucky, knowing that everyone’s afraid of him at this moment. He is a dangerous man, and his designation is probably to sell products that not a single trader has, so we might see stock shifts once he arrives.

On the image itself, some numbers could echo in an upcoming wipe. 1.5/e12 could very well mean May 12, which is a more believable fact knowing it falls under Thursday. Coincidence or certainty, we’ll have to wait to see what happens then.

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.
