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.
