How To Extract in Escape From Tarkov

It doesn’t matter how great your raid is, how many fights you win or how much loot you have in a pack if you can’t extract. Nothing’s worse than crawling your way to an unfamiliar extraction and realizing it requires you to pay Roubles or to drop your backpack loaded with loot.

Some extractions are always available, some of them are time-limited, and some have additional requirements ranging from paying cash to activating a switch elsewhere on the map.

Where do I extract?

The extraction points available to you during a raid are randomly selected each game from a pool that depends on the map you’re playing on, and if you’re playing as a Scav or a PMC.

I’m going to be covering each extraction point, as well as whether they’re available to a scav or PMC, and if they have additional requirements. Also, since it can be very difficult to find some of these extractions, I’ve included a community-made map of each game map.

⦁ Scavs Lands: Always open, but requires both a PMC and a scav to extract at the same time.
⦁ Sewer Manhole: Always open, requires that you aren’t wearing a backpack.

Labs Extraction Points

The Labs are special. You can’t do scav runs on labs so all the extractions are PMC only. In addition, most extractions require some kind of action to be made available, and a loud announcement will be made whenever these are opened. Finally, most of these extraction points have a chance of spawning Scav Raiders in the area and having them move towards the activation trigger. Also as a note: the announcements made when an extraction is activated are in Russian, but they end with an English phrase that you can recognize easily even if you don’t speak Russian.

This all means you can’t just run to an extraction like on most maps, you have to be constantly ready to fight Scavs, you’re always competing with other players, and half the time you’re giving away your location when you activate an extraction.

⦁ Cargo Elevator: Always available. Extraction is in sector G, and requires that you restore power to the elevator by flipping a switch in basement room G1. This will sound an alarm that ends with the phrase “Sector G”.

⦁ Medical Block Elevator: Always Available. Extraction is in sector O, but requires that you restore power to the elevator by flipping a switch in basement room G6. This will sound an announcement that ends with the phrase “Sector O”

⦁ Hanger Gate: Extraction is in Sector B, Requires that you open the gate by hitting the button in cabin B24 in the second floor of the hanger. This will sound an alarm that ends with the phrase “Sector B”.

⦁ Main Elevator: Always available. Extraction is in sector R, and requires that you restore power to the elevator by flipping a switch in the hall opposite of room R4. This will sound an alarm that ends with the phrase “Sector R”.

⦁ Parking Gate: Extraction is in Sector Y and requires that you push a button in room Y21 on the second floor. Sounds an announcement that ends in “Sector Y”

⦁ Sewage Conduit: Always available, Located in Basement room B1. This extraction requires you to first hit a switch on the left side of the room and wait about 90 seconds for the water level to fall.
