Escape from Tarkov is a survival-focused multiplayer shooter developed by a Russian company Battlestate Games. It takes place in the fictional city of – you guessed it – Tarkov, where interests of an international corporation, a private military organisation, and the locals collide, resulting in a bloody conflict and the sealing off of the region by the UN and Russian military.

The players go on raids and fight off “Scavs” (hostile scavengers) who are either NPCs or player-controlled, and loot gear which can be used or sold to one of the several vendors, with the goal of building up their character’s skills and equipment. The game boasts realistic ballistics and projectile physics, as well as real-life inspired weapons, ammunition, and armor.
