    I know this is old but damn I wish you couldn't put items into a gamma whilst in raid. Sick of hatcheters spawning in and getting to all the loot first. Kills the game for me some days, quest items and hideout items all getting gamma'd. What's the point of gearing up for a raid if you need certain items? There is no point. Because some hatcheter will get there before a geared guy, right now for a quest I need graphics cards, got a feeling I won't be doing this quest because everyone goes hatcheting to build bitcoin farms in there hideout.

    Gamma containers being locked in raid, ie: can't add items to it, makes the game so much better. Hatchers disappeared when they did the gamma container mod. Best part is you can tell who a real player is because they didn't care about the gamma mod, hatcheters on the other hand, cried and complained like there's no tomorrow

    the gpu farm isnt hard to do, im only lvl 36, have played f all this wipe and ive already done the gpu hand in quest and got 50/50 of gpu's in my btc farm. not hard. hell techlight had 3 gpu's once and a tetris. just have to know where to look. (i like mes in interchange, not many peeps go in there and a good chance of gpu spawning)

    I'm grinding strength at the moment. That's cock blocking me from progressing hideout big time. Can't upgrade Vents without level 3 strength, and can't upgrade a bunch of other stuff until Vents are done.

    I have a bunch of graphics cards ready for bitcoin farm but can't get there!!

    Back to throwing more grenades tonight... Expensive!

    and here I am only level 7 :p

    What is the best way to get item cases and stuff so I can make my stash a bit more manageable?

    Do the tasks. Eventually you'll be rewarded with Weapon Cases etc.

    Level up Therapist so that you can buy the Scav Junk Box. That should be your number 1 priority for stash management. I think its Level 3 Therapist from memory, and you need like 1.4m roubles.

    You need to save so much stuff now for quests and the hideout, having the scav junk box helps alot. I have two of them now, both full, and I have EOD and am now struggling for room again lol

    Do quests on Shoreline with a backpack full of empty fuel containers so you are overweight. And take like 8 F-1 grenades in as well - throw them all at the start, then go and do your kill/looting quests whilst carrying the fuel containers - if you are walking lots overweight (ie over your 40kg weight 'limit') you slowly grow strength.

    Shoreline is the best place for it because it's huge, lots of long distance walking.

    Throwing grenades levels it the quickest, but that gets very expensive.

    Take a DOCS/SICC case and fill it with maps. That along with your normal gear should put you over 40kg.

    They fixed that a while ago now. Map weight was reduced to 0.1kg or something like that.

    Search everything. Bags, caches, vests, pockets, filing cabinets. That's it really.

    Shit, shows how much attention I pay.

    yea turns out you cant put the ammo box in your gamma no more, i havnt tried for ages, have seen peps carry around butt loads of cheap shells in pilgrims, and replace it iwth loot etc... not sure if its an expensive way of doing it lol

    If you're in a game and a guy called "Pink" kills you and takes your stuff.... that's just my son... he's quite good at Tarkov apparently!
