Moving Through with the Control: Essential Escape from Tarkov Cheats
Up, up, down, down, B, A, select, start. Who doesn’t remember that classic code? Call it cheating. Call it a “practical approach” to a difficult game. Whatever the case, there’s no denying that the use of cheat codes gives players a distinct tactical advantage — one that can help them ultimately beat otherwise impossible games. They boost player abilities, and make gameplay much smoother in the process! While you can argue that good players don’t need instruction manuals, there are certainly times when having a “cheat sheet” becomes necessary. Take the case of games that are still in Alpha (or even beta, sometimes), for instance. When there’s a genuine lack of reference material, then having a “cheat code” is a must for the game to have at least some semblance of playability.
As Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore first-person shooter game that’s notorious for its intense in-game battles, arming up with whatever advantage you can find — be it cheat codes” or otherwise — will certainly go a long way. As the game is still in Alpha mode, not all the controls are listed in the controls section. Some are hidden, some you simply may not have heard of. That being said, you won’t be left in the proverbial dark to feel your way throughout the game.
Get ready to jot down some important notes. Here are the essential Escape from Tarkov Cheats to make it through the game.
Ready, Steady, Fire
We all know how painstakingly hard sniping can be. You need to have an almost frozen-like stature to steady your hand and get that one shot kill. By holding down the Shift button while you’re zoomed in, you can hold your character’s breath for a much steadier aim—and deadlier—aim.
Lock ‘em & Load ‘em
Reloading is as simple as pressing the R button. However, you need to already have your magazines ready either in your tactical rig or pockets. By simply double- tapping the R button, you can execute a quick reload. Be mindful, however, to pick your magazine up afterward. For a selective reload procedure, you’ll need to hold the R button and subsequently scroll the mouse wheel either ↑ or ↓ to select the specific mag you want to reload.
Every now and then, players will need to check up on their weapons and ammo. This can be done via the L button. Whenever the fire selector is in the → direction, it means it’s in autofire mode. A ↓ symbol indicates single fire mode. To check if you have enough ammo to power your escape from the post-nuclear wasteland of Tarkov, just hit the tab button. Pressing Alt + T will make your character take out the magazine so you can estimate just how much ammo you have left. Similarly, pressing Shift + T will let you scope out your chamber to check if there is a bullet.
Switching Between Fire Modes
In the heat of battle, you’ll find that switching between fire modes is a necessity. To do so, you just need to press the B button. Note that you will always start a raid with the single fire mode default. And speaking of switches, you can also illuminate your surroundings by switching your flashlight on with the T button. Pressing Ctrl + T, on the other hand, toggles the laser sight on and off.
Throw ‘em Up to Blow ‘em Up
Don’t forget about your projectiles! The use of grenades can instantly turn the tide in your favor. Throw a hot potato at your enemies by pressing G. Much like magazines, you can choose grenades by pressing either ← or →. Now here come the more complex movements. Pressing Alt + Q will make you do a backstep/left-side-step lean (↓←) while pressing Alt + D will cause you to do a backstep/right-sidestep lean (↓→).
To the Left, To the Right — It’s Alright
It pays to be careful when moving through unfamiliar surroundings. To help you gauge if there are threats within proximity, you can slowly lean to either side by Alt A (←) or Alt D (→). For quicker movement, simply press either Q or E to lean ←or →.
Getting a handle on all controls can be a challenging prospect—especially if you’re new to the game. With this cheat sheet, you can learn the ropes much quicker and be as efficient as can be as you edge your way out of radiation-filled Tarkov. Remember: It doesn’t matter how you got to the endgame. What matters is that you got there and that you got to enjoy the experience thoroughly.
Though the word “cheat” may have a negative connotation, it’s certainly an excusable offense in this situation as it is necessary. What do you think? Are there any other moves we may have missed? Let us know in the comments section!
