Suppressor Effects Demonstration

Test of hypersonic (BP) and subsonic (US) ammo with the AK74 with muzzle brake and suppressor. What appears to be missing is the supersonic crack for hypersonic ammo when fired with a suppressor.

0.8 Economics

The 0.8 changed a few things in the economics of the game. First let's talk about the good parts. Armor received a very strong price increase, PACA costing 25k (was 16k), the new class 3 armor vest costing 475$ and a class 3 UN helmet 358$.

This puts heavy armor slightly out of reach for every-raid use and has a knock-on effect for weapon attachments like suppressors or large magazines. Running a full set of armor and the best attachments is now exorbitantly expensive. This keeps the game from becoming boring for experienced players with a lot of cash.

Ammo is more expensive too. For details on that, read our 0.8 ammo preview

The 31k Kalashnikov problem However, AK assault rifles remain very cheap. The whole range of  AK rifles can be bought for anything between 22500 to 40000 roubles. The russian submachineguns, are within this price range. This is a problem, because any assault rifles outperforms any other weapon class in the game, for nearly the same price. This pushes weapon …

In-Depth 0.8 Ammo Preview

As a Tarkov player, whether you want to remove stroganoff or remove hamburgers, the leading question is always what ammo to use. Our scientists  have examined the newest 0.8 data released by the developers.

(btw our sheets are updated with that data)

9x18 Let's go through this for each caliber. First we examine the 9x18 cartridge.
The changes are minimal, only the BZT round has a lowered base damage (-9) and the 9P has damage increase (+9). The penetration values remain unchanged. If the armor resistance levels remain the same as before 0.8 then no single 9x18 can penetrate class 2 armor.

9x19 The PST round gets a (+2) bump in penetration which might move its capability near class 3 penetration at close ranges. Base damage increased for PSO (+4) and CCI (+3).
(pre 0.8 armor resistance at 50 meters)
9x21 Penetration value changes for SP10 (+3), SP12 (-3), SP13 (+5). Base damage changes for SP10 (-1), SP12 (+4), SP13 (-4). Armor piercing types are moved firmly above class 3 resist…
