10 Best Tarkov Streamers and YouTubers – Best Players
Learn from these best Tarkov streamers and YouTubers who regularly produce content and double as some of the best Tarkov players. Whether you’re a new, intermediate or advanced in your EFT journey the entertaining content from these creators can give you a break from the brutal raid experience and serve as a potential learning opportunity at the same time.
Like any popular game Tarkov has a healthy community of content creators that offer insightful and funny video based offerings while flexing their high Tarkov FPS counters. While some of these are fantastic mentors some lean more towards raw entertainment so finding the best streamer or YouTuber is going to depend on your intentions just like another video game content. Below I’ve featured a mix of options accordingly (in no particular order) while discussing what they specialise in and what you can expect.
While these 10 below on our list are a great starting point we also encourage you to check out the top Tarkov streamers on Twitch itself where you can support smaller EFT streamers and their channels where you might just discover the perfect streamer for your EFT content needs.
One of the longstanding popular Escape From Tarkov Youtubers and content creator in the community is Pestily who even has his own Pestily plague mask in game. From Australia with his own military background that Pestily discusses often stream Pestily is a balanced streamer of educational content and hilarious antics. While he doesn’t frag opponents quite as hard as other streamers on this list his mix of attributes makes him highly entertaining. He also has a strong charity focus with ongoing support for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
While on YouTube he has a vast amount of guide content, the unique full play through ‘Raid’ series and even a hardcore series. With well structured videos this makes him an ideal learning candidate for the intermediate or new player. More recently Pestily has also had a keen interest in organising challenging tournaments for content creators to help determine who is the best Tarkov player.
The godfather of the Hardcore series that self imposes some brutal restrictions to make Escape From Tarkov even more unforgiving is DeadlySlob. Like Pestily above he also has his own streamer rare item and it is even required for the Collector quest from Fence.
Delivering some of the best content amongst Escape From Tarkov YouTubers with game guides and commentary DeadlySlob hits the mark although has recently produced less guides on his YouTube channel in favour of edited highlight videos that discuss his thought process or show off unique elements of Tarkov (like the Hardcore Tarkov series or unique budget weapons).
An Escape From Tarkov content creator who also loves to create music Veritas has produced some of the best researched guide content on his YouTube channel covering important mechanics like zeroing, ammo, headphones and bitcoin farming. With his software engineer job it’s easy to see why Veritas loves to break down mechanics and dive right into them. Along with his podcast called Pogcast and general highlights this rounds out the content offering from one of the best Tarkov YouTubers.
Meanwhile on Twitch you can expect a chill orientated stream with plenty of laughs and the occasional education titbit although these are more often delivered through the aforementioned YouTube content. Unlike many others in this list Veritas is not a full time content creator though.
One of the deadliest players who regularly roams Labs while acquiring millions in Rouble loot with special restrictions it is easy to see why LVNDMARK is considered one of the best Tarkov streamers currently playing. Be it zero to hero, budget or meme guns LVNDMARK uses it all and has some seriously impressive map knowledge and skill to back it up. From time to time he can also be found on Reserve and Factory where he is just as deadly to the “VAL Gamers” as he refers to them.
LVNDMARK is primarily active on Twitch with his YouTube reserved for some of his best runs with some minor edits (like speeding up the lengthy time it takes him to stack all of his impressive Labs loot). For the gamer wondering who is the best Tarkov player it is hard to look beyond LVNDMARK although his Labs heavy content will need to be adjusted for other maps.
Another one of the top Escape From Tarkov streamers and best Tarkov players who is extremely deadly is QuattroAce who also heavily favours the PvP Escape From Tarkov map of Labs and pairs it with a super aggressive playstyle that sees him mowing down other PMCs. Often finishing a kill with a signature “GG” QuattroAce is one to watch for high level aggressive Tarkov action.
Similar to LVNDMARK his YouTube channel is reserved for highlight videos of his deadly killing sprees.
A full time and regular streamer TweaK is part of a content duo with shob0t in Ireland but still holds his own in the best Tarkov YouTubers department. With his stand out hair colour you know that you are in for a treat with his stream being laid back while also being a very capable player that isn’t afraid to mix up his Tarkov adventures.
On YouTube TweaK delivers raid highlights from his stream but also often produces lengthy videos where he shares his thoughts on patches, meta and general gear. One of his best series though is the budget to best where he covers 3 gun variants at different Rouble budgets and tries them out on Factory.
Co-host of the aforementioned Pogcast with Veritas JesseKazam provides content across Twitch and YouTube with a similar focus on guide orientated content. Rocking a strong beard to rival that of DeadlySlob’s JesseKazam has a calm demeanour in all of his content.
His tip orientated content pairs nicely with his Escape From Tarkov Lesson From Beyond The Grave where he breaks down each of his deaths to improve his own and your raid gameplay.
Another Australian on our list with a FPS background that floods his YouTube channel with guide focused videos of all sorts. With the add impressive raid highlight thrown in VoX_E is a good Tarkov content producer to follow for those wanting to grow their general game knowledge.
Be it key guides, item spawn summaries or game mechanics VoX_E is not afraid to dive right into the details and produce a well edited piece of content for Tarkov players. That isn’t to say he isn’t one of the top Tarkov streamers though with a Twitch channel supporting this planned YouTube content.
Kevin (KRASHED) like many on this list sits in his late 20’s although is based in Europe and is another regular of the Tarkov content community that ranks amongst the best Tarkov streamers who isn’t afraid to break down his fights and share with viewers what could have been done better.
This is most prevalent in the Breakdown series that covers his YouTube channel where he takes engagements with PMCs and breaks down the good, bad and ugly so you are confident of what to do in similar situations. KRASHED is also not afraid to explore some off meta options late into a Tarkov wipe to keep things fresh and interesting.
Another one of the guide and commentary based content creators you’ll find J Dog th3 Wise produces balanced content in that 10-15 minute range that makes it easy to digest and might just make him one of the best Escape From Tarkov YouTubers for you. Not limiting himself to any single element he has produced general, builds and solo player tips with a few of his stream highlights thrown in of him dropping entire squads across Escape From Tarkov.
With a wealth of Tarkov guides and gameplay content waiting for you in these 10 best Tarkov streamers and YouTubers that are my go to for Tarkov video content you’ll be well equipped for your next raid armed with all the necessary knowledge to go from zero to hero.
