Tarkov Maze ARG holds everyone hostage

This is why Escape From Tarkov has one of the best communities.

With the recent ARG (Alternate Reality Game) delivered by Battlestate Games, lovers of the realistic first-person shooter Escape From Tarkov have jumped to work to decrypt the biggest mystery ever. From a video to an ARRS terminal to the biggest ARG, which asks the players to solve a puzzle. This puzzle is unique, and it is more significant than any other before.

While I am vibing on OnePeg’s stream and seeing him contributing to the maze event, other players try their best to map and filter out the good from evil. Mapping all the steps will bring closure, at least for this maze, and knowing the extensive work behind it may lead to yet another puzzle.

It all started with yesterday’s video posted by Battlestate Games. In the video, we were presented with the link leading to the ARRS terminal, including the login credentials of the starting user, which held the data of other users and took us down a rabbit hole.

This maze holds further data with links to Google Drive documents that reveal further details and hint where players should look. What could this maze mean?

At the time of this writing, the maze is almost finished, with over 90% of progress. But, some errors still need to be fixed before the whole message gets decrypted.

If you’re willing to contribute to this, there’s a whole Google spreadsheet everyone has been contributing to. Created by the community, it’s fascinating to see how far they’ve come. If you want to contribute, join the Google spreadsheet and follow its guidelines. Everyone can help.

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.
