Streets of Tarkov location in Escape from Tarkov

Escape from Tarkov has received another major patch with January 27’s 0.13.01 update, and here are the full patch notes.

Escape from Tarkov devs Battlestate Games released an update on January 26 that brought major changes to weapon recoil and stamina penalties, and they didn’t wait long to release another. Battlestate Games dropped the update on January 27, bringing a ton of bug fixes to the hardcore extraction shooter.

The new Streets of Tarkov location arrived with the latest wipe, and it’s received the most love with the update. Not only have they brought visual fixes such as lighting, but they’ve fixed incorrect player spawns and made fixes to stop the major rubberbanding and desync issues players were experiencing.

Alongside this, the devs have “fixed incorrect volume of footstep sounds during crouched and standing movement,” and “reduced camera recoil by 20% for all weapons” in another smaller update. Be sure to check out the full Escape from Tarkov patch notes below.
