Getting started: Fighting the boss

The first thing you need to know is where to find the large and best loot without exposing yourself as the other players will try to get the same item than you and weapons to kill you and any scav on their way through the woods.

As always, in Escape From Tarkov maps the most dangerous place is the center. On that part of the map you will find the most dangerous zone in the woods of Tarkov, but if you are looking for ammo and cool stuff, you will also find keys and a lot of interesting things like loose loot, one or another jacket and grenade box, grenades, duffle bags and weapon boxes with some badass armors available. You will also find scavs, and Shturman, the boss of this map, this is particularly around the Lumber Mill, so be careful.

By the way, this guy is always surrounded by two followers and they avoid direct contact by walking in circles around the woods on the map and using camouflage, if you start to get really close they will try to flank you by using one of the followers as a distraction.

The best strategy to defeat the boss is avoiding long contact because he is armed with long range weapons, try to cut the distance between you and him, and look for a precise sniper shot. Sniping may be the key to success since he is not wearing any helmets. 

Some of the things you can get here are the Red Rebel Ice Pick, the SVDS 7.62X54 Sniper rifle, and the AK-105 5.45X39 assault rifle. These weapons will provide you a great defense and improve your gaming. Also, the followers have different grenades like the F-1, RGD-5, VOG-17, and the big VOG-25, plus interesting rifles that will help you escape from the Tarkov woods map and deal with your enemies, including any scav.

Escape From Tarkov: What features can you find on the way?

If you have gone to the north of the map, then you have found the water, a generally a clear zone. If you surround the lake at your left you’ll find scav activity and a car crash almost at the top. If you go right instead, you’ll find The Boat pretty close to Dead Man’s Place with some scav bodies and lost loot. If you continue your way to the outskirts water you will find some decent spawn points and a ground cache.

The east side of the map is pretty interesting, you will find many items spread by the woods but the most interesting part is on the dirt. In the opposite direction of the outskirts water, if you make a good search, you will find an important spot with keys, medical bags, rifles, one or another wooden crate, and filing cabinets. Of course, this stash is attractive to other players and scav scums, so be careful.

If you continue your quest to the east side you can find the east gate, a locked door, and if you go up into the woods you will find ZB 014 and a locked area, try with the keys you got in case you decided to collect them. Continue your way up to the dirt again and you will find out that the Scav House is located here. 

Now let’s talk about the other side of the map, the right side. On this, you will find lots of useful stuff but also many kill zones and scav spawns you should consider.

If you walk in the opposite direction of the water for some minutes, you’ll get to the South v ex, then turn to the left through the border, there you will find a hidden Sniper Scav, and a little bit ahead there will be the mountain stash. If you keep your path through the woods without leaving the border you’ll be safer. Just be careful not to share the the route. if you turn a little bit to the left you’ll find a plane crash site with some things to loot. More or less at the same height but more to the left on the map you will find the ZB 016. 

If you decided to keep your track out of sight, far away from the woods, you’ll see the west border, this means you are pretty close to land, you can keep going until you find the old station and the roadblock, or you can explore the land and get a duffle bag near the rubble.

If you follow the road, you will see the Factory Gate, continue walking and you may find a scav but also a key, a weapon box and more. If you find this it means you are pretty close to the water.
