Escape From Tarkov 0.11 Update Adds TerraGroup Labs, Killa, Stimulators, And More
Battlestate Games has unveiled the details on the up and coming big update 0.11 for the closed beta version of its multiplayer online first-person shooter Escape from Tarkov.
This update adds new location called Terragroup Labs, which is a secret facility beneath the centre of Tarkov, a new Scav boss ‘Killa’, a new type of consumable items called Stimulators which temporarily improve character skills, but simultaneously have negative effects on the character’s health, new gear and considerably more new stuff and fixes.
Nikita Buyanov, the head of Battlestate Games explained the Update
“As this location (TerraGroup Labs) is considered to be closed, it has special types of extractions. New mechanics imply the need to meet certain conditions for the activation of the extraction. It is possible to activate extractions more covertly, discreetly, thereby reducing the chances of detection by Raiders, or loud, what will lead to activation of Laboratory announcement systems and will attract Raiders to the source of noise.
Killa has good equipment, wearing heavy armor and hand-customized helmet. He is a very dangerous enemy. Killa uses light machine gun or other automatic weapon to suppress the enemy, while lurking from cover to cover, getting closer to his target for the final push. During the assault he moves in zig-zag manner, uses grenades, suppresses few enemies with the fire of his weapon, plants smoke cover on one enemy while attacking the other. Well, it’s going to be a tough fight to get him killed. By the way, he consideres PMC’s and Scavs as his enemies.
With this patch we added lots of new quests for all traders and more than 100 new items: weapons and attachments like RPK-16, Remington 700 and some variations of Mosin rifle; melee weapons: knives and hatchets, ice axe and machete, tactical sword and entrenching tool; new equipment like body armor, tactical vests, helmets and NVGs. I want to highlight the fact, that it will be impossible to pick up a melee weapon from dead PMC’s now.”
