Escape from Tarkov Key Guide: Essential Keys for Extraction and Loot

The most important keys to have in Escape from Tarkov are those that provide access to the various extraction points on the map. These extraction points are the only way to leave a raid with your loot and progress, and you must have the correct key in order to use them. Some of the most commonly used extraction points are the Factory Gate key, the Customs Factory Gate key, the Old Gas Station key, and the Shoreline Villas key.

In addition to keys, it’s also important to have a good understanding of the map layout, knowing the valuable loot and extraction points location, being aware of the possible ambushes and chokepoints, and having a good equipment and gear. This include, a good tactical gear, medical supplies, and weapons with enough ammunition, and a good backpack to carry all the loot and supplies.

Overall, having the right keys in Escape from Tarkov can greatly increase your chances of success in the game. Knowing which keys are important, where to find them, and when to use them can give you a significant advantage over other players. However, it’s also important to note that key management is only one part of the game, and players must also focus on survival, tactical awareness, and gear management.

Another important key that players should keep in mind is the TerraGroup Labs access keycard (Labs Keycard). This key provides access to the highly sought-after labs, an area that houses valuable loot, rare items, and high-end gear. The labs are also an extraction point and having a Labs key allows players to extract with valuable loot, making it a key of high priority and demand.
