Alright, let's face it: Escape from Tarkov is a difficult game with a steep learning curve, and early on without any experience, you're going to have the floor wiped with you. Let's change that. I want to give you some tips that are going to make your life a lot easier and have you pulling more dog tags than you can carry.

I have loved tinkering since I was a kid. I dismantled absolutely everything I could get my hands on. Of course, as a kid in the heat of my excitement, a lot of things would break, and as you might guess my father was not a fan of any of this. After a while a new house rule was created. If I took anything apart I had better be able to fix it. This forced me to learn how to solder with nothing more than online articles to teach me. I'd like to share some of the things that have worked for me with anyone who is new to the hobby. If you want to skip all the nonsense and get right to the tips and tool list jump down to the bottom.
Fallout 4 came out three years ago and I for one am still playing. I have loved the franchise since I first laid hands on it with Fallout 2 on my old XP office computer back in 2001. The unique world has always been in my top 3 picks of fantasy universes, the mix of wasteland grime and new world technology and the ability to explore it all... An absolute winner.

Laying in my bed in the dark hoping to have the strength to get up and face the day. Just the idea of it all terrifies me. Every moment I lay there thinking, driving myself deeper into this state of mind. It feels unbreakable. My failure day after day only compounds the thoughts that weigh like bricks keeping me pinned to my pillow. The depression seeps deeper into my mind with every passing day, and it feels like I will be like this forever.
