"The Tarkov shooter" - Part 1
"The Tarkov shooter" - Part 1 is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.
||Here you are. It appears that only you and Sniper can survive that long in the field, raid after raid. He was recently looking for a reliable guy, who can be entrusted with a task and be sure that he won't let you down. He says the best way to test a person in action is not with M1A with 20 rounds in the mag, but how well he can shoot a Mosin, through ironsights, at least 50 meters away. If this test is passed, then there's sense in further talking. He is a serious guy who won't ask for no reason, so it's most likely he needs a man for some serious business. How do you think, can I recommend you? Try yourself in as the Tarkov Shooter, if you pass the test, I'll arrange your contact with Sniper.
- Kill 8 Scavs over 40 meters away with a Mosin rifle without a scope
||Well, did it feel like you were Zaitsev?
To do this task, grab a Mosin and do not attach any scopes or sights. Use only the iron sights. Factory is not recommended for this quest as there are not many places where you can effectively engage at 40m or further. Only Scavs count towards this quest, not PMCs.
You are able to use both variants of the Mosin for completing this quest, i.e. the Mosin bolt-action infantry rifle and the Mosin bolt-action sniper rifle.
The end quote refers to Vasily Zaitsev, a famous Soviet sniper during World War II.
