    Anything you get with Edge of Darkness, can be earnt simply by playing the game. Maxing out your bunker, will lead to a larger stash size. Completing tasks will lead to a larger secure container etc.

    You've walked into the game when most people are high level with all the best weapons/gear. It's not quite representative of how the game works. In a recent discussion with Pestily (Aussie Streamer), Nikita (Owner/Developer of BSG) confirmed there will be a system much like Diablo 3 introduced. One permanent type character, and one "season" type that is reset after a set amount of time.

    Most of us are taking a break at the moment but will probably be back in once the wipe hits, hopefully, in a few weeks. Shoot me a PM if you want our discord details.

    In saying that I might be persuaded to fire the game up if you need some help.

    It's actually a great time! You can not care too much about your stuff, cos it's all going anyway :D

    I have been playing a few months and I'm pretty keen for the wipe, when I started playing my friends were level 35+

    As for beginner advice, the game is all about ammo and armor. Armor under level 4 isn't very effective against players or a well armed scavs. With ammo, 5.45mm and 7.62x39 have good value options (545 BT/BS and 762 PS/BP).

    Early game, do your Tasks, these will give you a lot of XP and more importantly they will build your reputation with the vendor, which will be required in order to purchase the more useful items from them.

    From there, remember that loss is a key component of the Tarkov experience. Don't get gear fear. It's like cattle, never give them names.

    Yeah I'm probably a little reckless with my gear some times more than others.
    Like if i happen to score a good gun like i currently have...
    I assume it will last me 1 - 3 really basic careful deployments where i dont get much loot.
    Or 1-2 better deployments where i actually do something...

    You're better off reckless than scared. Big time.

    Another good thing to learn is what loot is actually valuable. Like two basic red dot sights are a better grab than that gas analyser or GMCount.

    And yeah, don't sleep on the hideout.

    3-5 hours for the 12.6 patch and wipe.

    BSG tend to go underestimate these things so I wouldnt be surprised if its longer.

    Have all you guys purchased the pre-order to be able to play the beta? Looks like it's close to $100 to get access to the beta (via pre-ordering the full version) which I'm not going to do. :)

    Literally the patch finished installing about when you posted this lol.

    You should re-think this. It's a great game with a huge community. It's got plenty to offer even tho it's a Beta. Buy the standard version for starters to try out the game - if you love it you can upgrade to the EOD version (which is definitely worth it if you play alot).

    Anyhoo, I've played a few runs. Hit factory with my first raid and dropped two PMC's, got out with a bit of gear. Then a couple of failed customs runs haha. Now bed - more raids tomorrow!
