Escape From Tarkov’s next Hideout expansion is adding a Gym where players can strengthen their PMCs

Players will be able to maintain and strengthen physical skills of PMCs without joining live raids.

Escape From Tarkov is getting a Gym alongside new hideout areas. This feature will arrive as a part of the already existing Hideout, where players will be able to do various physical activities and strengthen their characters without participating in a live raid. As revealed by Battlestate Games’ COO, Nikita, the upcoming Gym component will be a Hideout addition that will be introduced in some upcoming patches.

While the feature sounds too good to be true, such an ability should bear a diminishing return mechanic which will prevent players from abusing it. This is how Battlestate Games already combats the in-game skill boost, which means it already has the algorithm for it. The more you do it, the less effective it will be. The clip for it can be found below:

Years ago, players could just stack backpacks and rigs in their secure container and abuse them until they get maximum strength and endurance, as well as other skills upgraded. That’s how far Escape From Tarkov’s advanced from back then. It’s good to see Escape From Tarkov advancing forward, and there is a lot in store for the whole community. Even though Streets of Tarkov is everyone’s desire, there are still other things that could make this shooter a lot more beautiful.
