If you are a beginner then this game could be a little tricky for you as it requires stealth and skill along with a lot of concentration and patience. However, you can make a smooth escape from it by just knowing the map well. As we know that the Woods map can be quite uncertain and vexatious for beginners we are here to give a helping hand.
Basically in this game, you have to spawn at the edge of the map, while the game will automatically push you towards the other side of the map for extraction. One should always be ready for a spawn fight and continue looking for other players as soon as you spawn.
Let us provide you a simple and accurate guide to Escape from Tarkov Woods Map
Mark Out Key Landmarks
It is very important to know where you have been spawned, thus you should look for the key landmarks to accurately identify your location quickly. Your key landmark could be-
Sniper SCAV mountains.
In case you can not locate any of these landmarks, then it means that you have been spawned near the woods or on the outskirts. Most probably after a little wandering you might find these key landmarks but in case you can’t find them then worry not as you have to find the plane crash area in the woods and know your location.
Once you have located your spawn location, proceed towards your extraction point. Doesn’t matter where you have been spawned just make sure to pass through the logging camp to move across. However, if your extraction point is the vehicle exit to the south, it’s okay to skip the camp.
There are some permanent extraction points for any player like for West spawn players, it’s the Outskirts while the one having the extraction point in the East will go to the UN Roadblock.
To view your extraction point you can double tap -O. While here are few possible spots for players-
East spawn players
ZB016 B Bunker.
Besides the above mentioned one, there are few special extraction points for east spawn players. For instance:
The Gate to Factory.
In the case of South vehicle exit you require 3000 Roubles for extraction.
If it is the Mountain Stash then it requires you to have the red ice pick, a pair of chords along with a no armoured vest to exit
West spawn players
Dead man’s place
Outskirts water and Outskirts
SCAV House of East gate.
The special exit for West spawn players will be:
ZB014 B bunker which demands a key
South Exit which is similar to east Spawn players
Logger camp is considered as the check point for all the players as everyone would cross it. Also it is cited as the hot spot as there are sniping positions all around this area.
On the West side the Sniper rocks and the Beach rocks on the east side are the areas where you can find the snipers possibly. You may avoid them or attack them by moving on top.
