Escape From Tarkov received new game changes that happened instantly. If you didn’t know, Escape From Tarkov is architectured in such a way that Battlestate Games can push some server changes at any given time, without performing any client updates. That’s precisely what happened tonight.
On Friday, July 31, Battlestate Games has decided to lower the repair prices of armored rigs. Some of them were quite punishing, and this would represent a milder player economy. On the contrary, new crafting recipes have been added in the Hideout, which is typically there to help players with quest progression.
Moreover, Shotguns and shotgun barrels have received spread and accuracy buff, which is even more surprising after 0.12.7. Maybe BSG wants to introduce a new Shotgun meta, which is endorsed and more than welcome by the players.
