Exploring every Escape From Tarkov Customs side of the map

The first thing we can say about EfT Customs Map is that it’s the first map new players should play. If you are discovering this awesome game of Battlestate Games, then a Customs map will be the best way of getting familiar with the dynamics. If you play as a PMC, the risk gets higher since you can lose your loot, but you will also comprehend how the extraction points and spawn points work.

Now let’s talk about what you will generally find in Escape From Tarkov Customs Map. This is an industrial parkland area pretty close to the factory you can find here the guide for the Factory map

You will find lots of attractive places to loot and surprise the enemy at short or long distance, so be extra careful and pay attention to the site.

The game duration in this map is 45 minutes, and it can have from 8 to 13 players. The boss is Reshala, and facing him will not be easy at all.

Visiting the boss spawn 

On Escape From Tarkov Customs Map, you can find Reshala in many places like the dorms, the Scav stronghold, and rarely at the tower north of the new gas station or between checkpoint woods and sub-station. The guy carries a TT pistol 7.26x25 TT Gold and is accompanied by four armored guards. He will be extra hostile if you are playing as a scav, but don’t be so confident as a PMC either.

Getting rid of Reshala is a big challenge. In order to eliminate the boss, you will first need to search him on one of the locations of the Escape From Tarkov Customs Map. Then avoid being seen or he will be covered by his bodyguards -pretty logic considering he is paying money for protection- so you will have to kill those guys first. The good news is they have some interesting weapons you can loot, and more than one thing will be useful at some point in the game.

Look for an indoors site. Bodyguards usually attack groups, so reducing the space will allow you to have them on the same point, then you can use a grenade to eliminate them. Killing the boss should be easier because he is not wearing any armor.

Important locations to consider

There are tons of keys on this map since it’s pretty big and has many things to loot. The most important is the Factory key since it’s vital if you are planning to escape at ZB 013 extraction point.

This map has lots of locations to explore, including extraction points and more than one scav spawn point.

On Escape From Tarkov Customs Map, you will find woods, water, and an old gas station, but on the other side of the map, you will find a trailer park, and in the north, there will be the dorms, some buildings that also work as extraction points.

The truth is that Battlestate Games has created a great map full of icons, but a little bit hard to explore because of its hugeness. If you want to amplify your domain on the land, then you should practice it - being a SCAV is a great option then because you won’t lose anything if you are killed in the game, remember to visit each and every one of the extract points, which we will mention now.

EfT Customs characteristics

Customs is recommended for beginners mostly because of the large open spaces, less crowded areas, and less risk. The combat usually takes place in the middle and long-distance. Also, it is known for having decent loot but not the best one. Thus it doesn't attract the most experienced, well-equipped hardcore players. In some hours you are able to fill your bag with a few hundred thousand Roubles, give or take, worth of junk without a single soul found. The loot can include weapons, weapon racks, crates and boxes with ammo and parts of weapons, grenade boxes, locked safes, money, cash registers, a jacket here and there, computers, dead bodies, loose medicines, and medical bag, etc.

On top of that, a lot of beginners' quests are available on the Customs map. Hence, advanced players will have fewer reasons to lurk around there. You will not die in a second.

It doesn't mean that you cannot play Customs when you are an advanced player. Even more so, you can relax knowing that any possible encounter will not be that challenging. Although, still Customs is a bridge between players who just started and the battle-marked veterans. 


Extraction points on Customs to consider

As you already know, the most important part of all Escape From Tarkov maps is to find the extracts where players can go and be rescued. The game has worked on providing every player with lots of options available on every map, each point with different characteristics in order to work. You will find 23 different extracts on the Escape From Tarkov Customs Map
