Only business is a Quest in Escape from Tarkov.
||Good adventurous day out! Intense skin, brother, who are you hailing from, nikes? Or military? Well, whatever, I don't care. Don't think I'm against PMCs or even mercenaries, it's just the situation we have on our hands, in our city, is total shit. So I get it, you want to do business with me? Well, first I have to figure out who you are, get used to you around, you know? Let's start with some trading and see how it goes from there, before we talk business.
- Must be level 15 to start this quest.
- Obtain level 2 loyalty with Ragman
||Welcome to the crew, homie.
Buy and sell items at Ragman. Doing these two actions will build you towards his 750,000 rouble requirement to reach loyalty level 2. There are a few methods to reach this goal quickly. The quickest, but one of the most expensive, is to buy a large amount of one type of item from him, such as a Kolpak-1S riot helmet, and immediately sell them back to him. Repeat this until you're reached the required amount. Doing this will quickly deplete your cash though as you only make about half your money back when buying and selling an item. To obtain 750,000 worth of loyalty, you would lose about one third of the amount with this method.
Some of the items sold by Ragman are also bought by Skier at a higher price. Buying from Ragman and selling to Skier will help you retain more money than simply buying and selling to Ragman, but more items will need to be bought from Ragman to complete the quest as both bought and sold items count towards Loyalty Level 2.
