Description[edit | edit source]
"Leg Meta" is short for "Leg Most effective tactic available" which simply means that targetting the legs of an enemy to terminate it would be the fastest way. In Tarkov, it is possible to deplete an enemy's health by repeatedly shooting them in the limbs, legs being the easiest limb to aim for. There is no leg armor in Tarkov, thus making limbs unprotected and vulnerable to all types of ammunition. Therefore, it is easy and cheap to dispose of someone using that technique.
In earlier game versions, when armor was still in an early stage, "leg meta" used to be much more effective, especially against armored targets, but it's still a valid strategy nowadays.
