    If I get the game at this point, should I expect to just be ganked constantly by high level players with tons of hitec gear while I'm waving a broken hatchet at them? or is it worth taking the plunge?

    At which point? There are regular wipes and nolifers usually rack up in a couple of weeks.

    How often are they wipeing? And will they continue to wipe once out of beta?

    I'm a bit confused about how that is supposed to work in the long run. Stop wipeing and it'll be hell for new players trying to fight people with maxed out gear. Keep wipeing and the re-grinding will start to seem pointless after a while as it removes the sence of achievement aswell.

    You should expect to die all the time regardless if who you meet are geared high level players or not, thats Tarkov. I've killed high level players with tons of good gear with shit gear myself and vice versa. It's all part of the fun. Raids are never decided on what you or other people bring or how high level they are.

    Also regularly meet high level players with shit gear

    Sure, but I'm pretty sure thermal optic sniper scopes and max level armor won't hurt either.

    Maybe, but you can't really afford losing such a kit unless you grind 24/7 or are Sun Tzu Suvorov reincarnated.

    Best game I had in regards to that was taking just a modded Remington M700 in, not overly expensive but that and shit rig no backpack, enough milk to hold me over, got two hatchet retard kills, then all of the sudden while I go down in a tower to drink some milk, three dudes are right in my sights when I get up sneaking along the southern wall in Reserve, I hit one in the chest and they start looking around but haven't spotted me, I hit the other in the head, dies right away. I hit the one that's down patching again and he dies, and then the last guy I see switch guns and start spinning around, I get real excited, and miss the next shot.

    Never in all my years of gaming have I been decent at FPS, I usually don't care about it, but in this moment I was excited as I was first getting good at PvP in EVE, I shoot again he's hurt but right when he looks right at me I fucking hit in in the face shield. I never waited so long to get loot before, Reserve has hoards of player scavs and I was convinced I'd regret it if I went down. I get to the bodies and they are fucking decked out. I grab up everything I can, packing things into every possible corner, and I take the most cowardly route of all back to the cliff extract. They had three thermal scopes, and the first dude I popped had one of those thermal vision set up helmets. I've never used the thing before, but being reasonably sure there were no snipers since I had scouted all the best spots I threw them on, and holy shit that stuff is game breaking. Sold all their shit and I already had a good amount of roubles but it was just great. Sniping is so fun when you aren't one for run and gunning.

    Find ways to make quick money, and sell top tier shit, the ammo is all you really need and AK-74M's are cheap as fuck and lethal. Taking a little time to farm some money and using shit guns but getting good map awareness at first are key. In fact don't splurge on anything until you know a map real well.

    Hit O to see extracts. Nothing happens.
    Check a map on the wiki and run to crossroads extract.
    Nothing happens.
    Start running towards another extract.
    time runs out.

    Remember when some other game company released a game with simmilar mechanics bit without the silly blue circle? Well, here we are.

    How is the server disconnecting me my fault?
    I've figured out the extract stuff now. I'd just misunderstood the whole "always open" on the wiki, doesn't realy mean "always open" and missed that I was supposed to doubletap O. Big deal.
    Stop being a dick. You're sounding like Razor used to.

    Man, the loot frustration is real

    Just did a scav run. I spawned with a scoped sniper rifle and a f-n LABS passcard!
    Ofcause it spawned me at the old gas station of all places.
    I got as far as the hole in the wall when a pimped out PMC popped me from the grass. He had faceshield, supressor and everything. Don't think I even managed to hit him.
