Escape From Tarkov pre-wipe event #5 introduces explosive ammo

Did you think that explosive ammunition exists only in Modern Warfare 2? It appears that Battlestate Games can also implement such a projectile in Escape From Tarkov. It’s not a word about replication, but a rather invention that would later traverse as a default option to some of the bosses in the Norvinsk region.

At the moment, the ammo can only be crafted in the Hideout, which in translation, needs the purchase of the mandatory goodies from the Flea Market. Therefore, the auction house might be plagued with crafting materials with insanely high prices due to the increased demand.

According to a streamer and known Tarkov leaker, LogicalSolutions, there are 3 new explosive slugs added to the game.

  • 20/70 Elephant killer slug
  • 20/70 Flechetta Plus
  • 20/70 Explosive slug

Apparently, this type of ammunition works only with the TOZ-106 20ga MTs 20-01 Sb.3. Are you excited to use this ammunition and maul some human players or AI?

Escape From Tarkov is nearing wipe, and we’re already in the second half of December, which is considered to be a bit late. Taken into consideration the timeline, the next wipe would likely introduce us to a Christmas event that will grant various of benefits to human players.
