What Are the Budget Guns and Mods in Escape from Tarkov?

Escape from Tarkov Budget weapons

As we mentioned in the introductions of this post, one of the most critical goals in EfT is creating new and powerful weapons, but this is not always easy or cheap. Creating a good weapon requires “meta” mods, which improve the statistics of the weapons in five different ways:

  • Accuracy.
  • Muzzle Velocity.
  • Sighting Range.
  • Ergonomics.
  • Recoil.

The problem with “meta” mods is that they are so expensive. Sometimes the price of these mods is higher than the price of the gun and ammunition. 

Lucky for you and all players, the budget mods and weapons exist in EfT. Their price is much more affordable than the previous ones.
