Escape From Tarkov 0.12.7 Expands Customs, Adds Scav Boss on Shoreline – Patch Notes

Battlestate Games’ realistic first-person survival shooter, Escape From Tarkov, will receive a brand new update. Classified as patch 0.12.7, it will include several significant changes, new Scav Boss on Shoreline, and an expansion of the Customs map, which is one of the player’s favorites. Stationary weapons are no longer a phenomenon on Reserve, as they’re being brought in Customs as well.

With that, the Scav Boss of Customs, also known as Reshala, will less likely patrol in dorms, but instead will cover another area. Furthermore, patch 0.12.7 will add the new Scav Boss on Shoreline, also known as the Sanitar. The Sanitar is a healer, which has the ability not to heal himself but also his companions, which may be a hell of an encounter.

Several other issues are being fixed in 0.12.7, among which the AI behavior is also attuned. New ammunition is also being added, which is probably going to shuffle into the current meta. Other fixes have also taken place, so be sure to check them in the patch notes! As a celebration of the update 0.12.7, Battlestate Games has also published a brand new teaser, which can be found below.

Identical to the preliminary patch notes, you can find the official ones below:
