Escape from Tarkov: Best FPS Gun Customization?

If you’re not a gamer you may never have heard of Escape from Tarkov. Described by design company Battlestate Games as a “hardcore narrative MMO mix of FPS/TPS and RPG genres”, it’s evidently a dystopian battle between two PMCs (Private Military Companies) trapped in the fictional Russian city of Tarkov. Early reports indicate it really does have some seriously badass weapon customization and equipment options, enough so that even desultory gamers and people who would normally never pick up a controller might like it. It’s interesting to see them do some of their “homework”, as you can do in the developer’s diary video below.

Here’s what Battlestate Games says about it:

“All weapons featured in the game are absolutely real and have truly lifelike physical properties. They get misaligned, jam and malfunction in all sorts of ways. We guarantee you hadn’t seen anything like this before. As for nonexistent exotic guns like railguns and stuff, we’re not going to introduce any. Realism all the way.”
