Tarkov Quest Overview & Tips

There are currently over 300 different quests in Escape From Tarkov that require the player to complete various tasks for the in game traders to gain reputation, rewards and progress to new quests. These quests serve as the primary gameplay loop and have grown significantly during the games development with each new map providing an influx of quest content. Completing the majority of quests allows players to unlock Fence’s quest, The Collector to earn the Kappa Secure Container that serves as the ultimate objective for most players in the community. In addition to the core quests players can also receive daily and weekly operational tasks for random objectives and rewards.

The main types of quests in Tarkov encourage players to explore different maps and weapon types with tasks such as:

  • Eliminating Scavs or PMCs with map, weapon or other gear requirements.
  • Picking up a special item from a map location or handing over a particular quantity of lootable items.
  • Visiting a location and placing something at a location.
  • Modifying weapons to meet specific criteria.

My general recommendations for progressing through quests efficiently in Tarkov is:

  • Research: For the difficult location based quests that are in high traffic areas (like the various quests located at Dorms on Customs) research with the Tarkov wiki and content creator videos is key so that you can focus while in the raid instead of getting lost. Offline mode can also be a method for players to visit the location without pressure if you aren’t confident in your map knowledge.
  • Stacking: Efficiency in Tarkov questing comes from stacking multiple quests together with players completing two, three or even four quests at once when possible. The best way to identify these opportunities is to look at the maps listed in your PMC task menu and also look at quests a few steps ahead of your current quest list as you may be able to unlock some overlapping quests. For difficult quests that require extraction with an item though players should focus on only one quest at a time.
  • Off-Peak: Utilising off peak times and night raids where possible can be a sneaky method to lower to the total PMCs in your raids and give you an easier time for quests that require visiting locations for items and surviving. Transition times between night and day raids are also generally quieter and can similarly be used for slightly improved odds.
  • Store Items: Storing items for future quests is the ultimate efficiency tip for quest progression although it requires the use of quest trees to plan ahead and enough stash space to store them. Having a general awareness of what the quest items required in the future and slowly acquiring them in a raid can remove a lot of quest frustration and will even allow you to instantly turn in some quests.
  • Squad: When all else fails finding some friends or others in the EFT community to complete quests at the same time can improve your success as you will have protection while reducing the number of hostile PMCs in raid.

Tarkov Quest Tree Resources

Quest trees are invaluable Tarkov tools to plan your progression and understand the relationship between different Tarkov quests. I recommend players use the following two regularly updated quest trees to plan out the best quest path toward towards the best rewards featured on this page:


Tarkov Market

Tarkov Market provides players a vertical list of all trader quests and includes the visuals of what items are required so it is easier to identify what you should be saving from your raids and includes links to the invaluable Tarkov wiki on every single quest.

It also integrates with the quest item tracker for pro members of this service to help you map your own progression.
