Escape From Tarkov

A few days ago on Twitter, Battlestate Games, the Escape from Tarkov developers, revealed some answered questions as part of a community podcast in a "blitz format". 

The first question asked about Boss Gluhar, and that he hasn't been encountered "in a large number of raids in a row." This was confirmed to be a bug and that's already been fixed. 

The second question referred to whether there would be a rebalancing of experience and levels, as getting to the 40th level with "each wipe is getting easier." The answer to this question was yes, that it is "most likely" that a rebalancing of experience and levels would occur.

There will also be a "complete redesign" when it comes to ballistics on locations. Door Piercing was added recently, and it looks like Battlestate Games is just getting started, as they plan to readjust objects' penetration, and vehicles will also receive hard to penetrate zones such as their engines. 

There are also no plans to have an exit or entrance to the Hideout location, and the IFAK individual tactical first aid kid now stops heavy bleeding, which apparently didn't happen before.

Escape From Tarkov Cheat Bans

Perhaps most interestingly, there have been around 30,000 cheaters banned in Escape From Tarkov over the first 15 days of 2021, which is pretty high. 2,000 cheaters a day is no joke, and I cannot help but wonder how much of a cheating epidemic there is in the game in order to warrant this many cheaters caught and banned. This is just one indication of how popular the game has become, despite avoiding major store fronts like Steam.

And finally, minefields will receive exits in the future when mine detectors are implemented into the game. Good news for anyone who doesn't want an... explosive ending for their character.
