Escape From Tarkov is receiving a new update today, May 16, 2023, that will introduce significant balancing changes. These adjustments are in response to community feedback following the latest changes and are expected to improve the overall dynamics and player experience.

Escape From Tarkov Balancing Changes – May 16 Update Notes

  • Proportionally reduced the inertia strength while moving (walking, strafing) for characters with medium and heavy overweight effect.
    • For characters with the heavy overweight effect – by 15%
    • For characters with the medium overweight effect – by 7.5%
    • For characters without or with light overweight effect, the inertia strength is unchanged.

This change is due to the community feedback on the results of Friday’s balancing changes, and will allow for a better experience of the changes in the raid dynamics.

These changes are expected to provide a more balanced and enjoyable raid experience, allowing players to move more fluidly and naturally in different scenarios. This should help to create a more dynamic and strategic gameplay environment.

Battlestate Games always listens to community feedback and is committed to continuously adjusting and improving the game. Players are encouraged to keep sharing their experiences and insights to help make Escape From Tarkov the best experience.
