current dev status on 27.01.2021 by Nikita
Dear friends, Nikita Buyanov briefly answered a few questions on Escape from Tarkov, at the last community podcast in blitz format.
Q: Boss Gluhar has never been encountered in a large number of raids in a row. Have you decreased the chance of Gluhar boss or other bosses spawn?
A: It was a bug. We’ve already fixed it.
Q: Will there be a rebalance of experience and levels. Reaching 40th with each wipe is getting easier.
A: Yes, most likely.
Q: Now there is a door piercing, will there be more work to increase the piercing? Walls? Corners? Other obstacles?
A: There will be a complete redesign of ballistics on the locations. This means that there will be a readjustment of objects in terms of penetration, vehicles will receive hard-to-penetrate zones (for example, the engine) and so on.
Q: Do you plan to have an exit and entrance to the Hideout location?
A: No, this is not planned.
Q: The IFAK individual tactical first aid kit now stops heavy bleeding?
A: Yes, that’s right.
Q: What about the cheaters situation in the game at the moment?
A: Send us reports on cheaters. Since the beginning of 2021 we’ve already banned about 30000 cheaters.
Q: Minefields currently serve as a location limiter. Will there be any exits at minefields in the future when mine detectors are implemented?
A: Yes, such exits are planned.
