The Lab is a location in Escape from Tarkov.

Description[edit | edit source]

Underground laboratory complex TerraGroup Labs is a secret object right under the center of Tarkov. Officially, this research center does not exist and, based on data scraps, is engaged in R&D, testing and simulation projects in chemistry, physics, biology, and high-tech areas.

Features[edit | edit source]

Insurance[edit | edit source]

All items a player loses in this location will be lost. The insurance purchased from any traders will fail, and no items will be recovered. When a player dies, the dealer will send a mail that they sent people to recover the items, but later the player receives mail stating that the location could not be found.

Announcer[edit | edit source]

Whenever an event of high importance happens inside The Lab, the announcer will be triggered. The announcer will usually trigger when Scav Raiders infilitrate or when a player extracts using the Hangar and Parking lot extractions.

The announcer can be disabled using the Alarm Control Panel Keycard.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Roaming the map are the Scav Raiders, extremely deadly enemies who frequently travel in groups. Wearing audio enhancing devices to avoid or ambush these enemies is highly recommended. Scav Raiders don't commonly spawn with face protection, and in many cases don't spawn with helmets, so using a shotgun or automatic weapon and aiming for the face can be a viable strategy.
