Tarkov Kind of Sabotage or Supply Plans (Skier or Therapist) Quest
Are you wondering whether to complete Kind of Sabotage or Supply Plans in Escape From Tarkov? These quests require players to choose from Skier or Therapist with different quest rewards that can severely impact on your Tarkov progress if not carefully considered.
Offering an early quest in your Tarkov wipe players must venture into the heart of the Woods lumberyard to obtain the secure folder from one of the three wooden cabins. After obtaining this folder players have the option of returning to Skier to complete Kind of Sabotage or instead hand the quest item into Therapist and complete Supply Plans with each offering a basic amount of Roubles, experience and trader reputation.
Read on to learn why I recommend you complete Skier’s quest (Kind of Sabotage) above the Therapist option for all players.
Kind of Sabotage (Skier) Option
Kind of Sabotage is seen as the bad option from a Tarkov lore perspective with players passing on vital information to Skier to sell rather than using it to help the Therapist potentially save lives by acquiring food for civilians. After obtaining the folder from the Woods map in Tarkov there are no additional requirements with players able to hand the folder directly to Skier.
In return for making this choice though players earn the following rewards:
- 4,500 Experience
- Skier Rep +0.04
- 180,000 Roubles (changes based on Intelligence Centre level)
For failure to complete this quest players will lose 0.04 Skier reputation.
Supply Plans (Therapist) Option
Kind of Sabotage is seen as the good option from a Tarkov lore perspective with players returning to the folder to Therapist who originally provides players with the task. Using the plans included in the secure document folder she’ll have vital information on TerraGroup resources with the intent to provide them to the civilian population.
In return for making this choice players earn the following rewards:
- 7,500 Experience
- Therapist Rep +0.04
- 75,000 Roubles (changes based on Intelligence Centre level)
For failure to complete this quest players will lose 0.04 Therapist reputation.
Why Choose Kind of Sabotage (Skier)?
The Kind of Sabotage vs Supply Plans debate is one of the easier multiple choice quest decisions in Escape From Tarkov with Skier’s option being the clear winner.
This is mostly due to the reputation impacts of the quest with Therapist having an abundance of easy quests early in your progress that mean her reputation is easy to earn and the loss of 0.1 is immaterial to your account progress. In comparison the Skier reputation of 0.3 (or possibly loss of 0.3) can significantly halt your quest progress and thus not recommended.
The bonus of having extra Roubles is also a nice benefit that can go a long way on some early budget guns, headsets or high quality ammo. The lower experience of Skier’s Kind of Sabotage option is also only equivalent to a single good raid so doesn’t significantly hurt your PMC.
