You have to see this fast before it gets deleted. Usually, moderators of the official Escape From Tarkov subreddit page delete any complaints of game bugs or cheats, so this might be yeeted off the internet if not uploaded privately. Apparently, there might be a new sort of cheat whirling “around the Norvinsk region,” which involves flashbangs.
In a recent video proof, not one, but a huge cluster of flashbangs are being thrown at the player’s face, without hearing an actual flashbang explosion. The high-pitch head-ringing sound is also missing, and it seems that the player screen does not face the same type of distortion as a natural flashbang explosion. The flashbangs just gradually dim the image as their presence intensifies.
This phenomenon hasn’t been the first posted throughout this week, and it seems that it’s a brand new occurrence within the Tarkov region. The video posted on the subreddit can be found below:
This could very well be a new type of cheat in Escape From Tarkov, and if you ask me, it’s already hundreds of times better than just eating a headshot out of nowhere. The “top of head” always gets me, no matter what kind of helmet I wear. I’d rather be on a server with a cheater willing to bedazzle me and spare my life than kill me and get me back to the lobby. What about you?
